College pages 11 and 12!

A double page finish!

Sorry for not posting last week! I was so close to a page finish by the end of last week I thought to myself, oh I'll just stitch another day or two and finish it all up. But then things hit the fan. I knew it would be a busy week, I just didn't expect it to be THAT busy - I had three major projects due, the in-laws came to visit, AND the grand opening of the library was Saturday with Laura Bush as the guest speaker followed by a luncheon she was at that my boss made me work. So between all that, I didn't get to stitch for days. Yesterday I sat down with my stitching and an audio book and just went wild, so here it is!

Before:



After:



That picture is as true to color as I have been able to get in a long time! Also, this marks the project as 51.06% complete. Wow! How sad that that's all I can think of to say.

I'll be putting College away for a little bit (not too long) as I promised Handsome Helpful Fiancé that I'd start the flapping parrot from Golden Kite as soon as I finished up these two pages. It's his birthday on Thursday and I promised it as an early birthday present. So that's what I'll be doing tonight and working on until a page finish - which shouldn't be too long as Golden Kite pages are only about 3,000 stitches per page and HAED pages are about 7,000 stitches per page!

Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy it - 4 weeks of this school semester left (ends May 13) and then I'm free until June 3 when summer starts. Taking summer classes so I can finish ASAP instead of dragging it out.

Sooo I think that's about it. Happy Stitching!

Wow, that's really coming along nicely! 50% done! They say the second half of a project always goes faster than the first half.
