I traveled home on Wednesday...which ended up including part of Thursday...so I'm a bit late in my Murky Manor update.
Here is an update of my Florida stitching on this long forgotten piece:
This is where I started.
After week 1 it looked like this:
It was a slow start. I had to figure out where I was, had a false start, then had to change the fiber used in the ghost...which was a very slow stitch.
I felt like week 2 was the week I managed the most stitching time. It rained steadily for 2 days making outdoor activities unappealing.
During week 3 I made steady progress on the actual mansion.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much more progress I made in week 4 despite thinking I had far less stitching time. I think that means it has become a much easier piece to work on.
This is where progress comes to a halt as I've left the piece in Florida. I will be returning to over-see another renovation project so I anticipate a lot of stitching time. As much as I wanted to just keep going I will have this to look forward to when I return. Plus, it will save planning and packing for the next time around.
I get to search my stash for something to start. Who doesn't love that? I can't even say what I'm leaning towards because, until I'm actually putting needle to fabric, my plan can change. As my kids would say...squirrel!??
