Touch of Spring... end of second week

By the end of the second week on Touch of Spring I almost finished my third page (page number 2). I'm really pleased to see the progress and I'm looking forward to start the following page, I'm going to do the bottom pages now which means I'll be doing part of the hand :)

And here are the photos: 

The full progress:

And a close up to the two weeks progress:

There are some missing crosses in the middle but I ran out of the thread I needed . Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow or Wednesday along with the threads for my next start ...

Hope you enjoy it and Happy Stitches =D

Touch of Spring... and rotation plans

Today I reached the half page I was hoping for by the end of the week, stitching big blocks of the same color makes the progress go faster :), I believe that I'll be close to finish my 3rd page by the end of this week (the 2nd week on it).

And of course here's the picture to show:

Also I already made the order for the threads I'll be needing to start the HAE- Dragon Fae 1, so very soon I'll be having 6 projects on my rotation and therefore I'll be changing my rotation order, changing between one HAE and one non-HAE each 2 weeks (the two weeks rotation is working fine so I'll keep with it, at least for now eheh)...

My progress

So I decided to change my rotation to 2 weeks in each project so that I can enjoy each one a bit longer and see more progress in the end of the time. On Monday I've picked up "Touch of Spring" again and this is my progress after 4 days, 1400+ stitches:

I also decided I'll be posting my progress a bit more frequently since the rotation is 2 weeks each I'll be posting 4 times per each project :)

QS Believe - Jessica Galbreth - Page 1 - 09/01/2011

On the 01/01/11 I started the QS Believe from Jessica Galbreth I'm stitiching it on a 25ct white evenweave 2 over 1, full stitches.
I'm stitching nearly 300stitches on it per day, so according with my calculations if I keep this rhythm in 3 months it will be finished...
And after 9 days this is how it looks like:

Popcorn Birth Sampler finished

Today I finished the Popcorn birth sampler.
The first finish of 2011 and the first "to do" project of 2011 to be crossed out from my list for this year.
I think that now I'll be splitting my focus between the two HAE and the Jasmin. Probably Jasmin will be the next finished project... or it might be the HAE Believe... we'll see...

But meanwhile here's a picture of the Popcorn project finished:

1st post of 2011 - to do list


So this is my first post for 2011 and as it should be it will work as my "To Do List for 2011"...

So here are my cross-stitching plans for this New Year:

- Finish the Popcorn Birth Sampler
- Finish the HAE "Touch of Spring"
- Finish the DMC Jasmin
- Finish the Flower Towel
- Finish the HAE "QS Believe"
- Start and finish the Orchid picture from Cross Stitcher Maggazine
- Start and finish the DMC British Scene
- Start and finish the HAE Dragon Fae
- Start and finish the HAE MIA
- Start HAE Tabby the beggar

I hope I'll be able to do it all and more, and if I get more projects I'll add them to my to do list and I'm starting  with a rotation system so I can show more progresses during the year. I already started the HAE QS Believe today and as soon as I reach the 300 stitches I'll change to other project for more 300 stithes and so on... I just hope I can keep only 5 projects on the go instead of adding more and more...

Lets see how the year goes :)
