I did it! I've realized that this 10 hour rotation is null and void when I'm about to finish a page. Or if I'm going to be beading. Rules are made to be broken, right? I was so close by the end of the 10 hours that I just said, "heck with it!" and kept going. Oh and by the way, the original page describing the rotation system can be found here if you're interested.
It's kind of a pain in the butt to stitch, but it looks surprisingly good! Boyfriend gets so excited when I stitch this one - I think it's his favorite. Next up in the rotation is Greek Mandala and then Tiny Rose Garden - then back to Middle Earth.
I'm slowly slowly slowly catching up on blogs. Haven't had much chance to read as I was stitching like a maniac on Middle Earf, and now I'm doggie sitting for this little thing:
Unfortunately she's sick right now so I have to give her eyedrops every three hours and she's got a cone of shame on. Still, she's really cute and follows me around all day. But it's like a little kid. Silence is dangerous. I'm also stuck at home since she can't go for walks because food allergies have made her little paws sore. So lots of cooking and stitching.
Speaking of cooking, that's the job I mentioned before. My parents both work all day and I'm home all day. So we've come up with the arrangement that they will pay for all the food, I will cook it, and then they pay me to cook it. It's really fun and I love doing it. I've found that Cooking Light magazine has some AMAZING recipes and I've even delved into the cuisine of Delhi. Mulligatawny Soup, by the way, is absolutely AMAZING, easy, and surprisingly low in calories so email me if you want the recipe.
Time to give doggie her eye drops. And bug Boyfriend. And catch up on blogs. And start dinner.
So much to do! Happy stitching, everyone - I'll be back soon with an update on Greek Mandala.
