I think I've been staying on track this week with my stitching, although I haven't felt all that productive. Maybe it's the lack of Happy Dances this month. Most of my February stitching has been on BAPs and I'm not having many finishes to celebrate right now. Maybe it's time for another ornament.

Monday was the TW SAL, and I dutifully pulled out Castle Sampler. One of my goals for this month is to finish the center panel, and I think I am on track for that.





On Tuesday I worked on my UFO. I was tired of fiddling with beads, so I worked on her wing instead. There's a ton of blending filament and metallic braid in the wings, which made the stitching go quite slowly.





With my SAL commitments out of the way, I was able to spend some time working on Robert's Stocking. I'm happy to report that it is going much more smoothly now after all of the frustration I had earlier with restarting it. I took the photo below before last night's stitching session and have nearly finished the sleeve.

I've felt kinda off track this week myself. Sometimes our feelings aren't a good gauge of reality tho, lol! Your projects are looking great. :D

You've made great progress with your WIPS. I know about the off track. I've gotten myself back into multiple WIPS again, but this time most of them are small projects which to me makes it seem worse. Keep your chin up.

Hi there Juanita, hey, those 2 projects you are working on at the moment are A-m-a-z-i-n-g!!! I must say I have never tackled such a large work as your fantasy castle, mainly because I have tended towards samplers or gifts for other people, so they have been "quick-makes" like the Wedding Sampler on my Blog. Now, your project does give me an incentive to try something really challenging! I hope your 24 hour challenge went well - sounds like fun to have a target and an incentive with instant results!

You might not have had many finishes, but you're making wonderful progress on your WIPs! Adia especially is looking gorgeous!

Thank you for the e-card - it was lovely of you to remember my birthday and it made me smile :)
