Stitching Bug!

My stitching bug is back in full force and I think you can tell from the progress.

Before:


After:


I'm a few hundred stitches short of 3,000 on the page but I full anticipate to get there tonight or tomorrow, at the rate I've been going anyway. And I'm very excited to see the outline of the college appear on this page. Woo hoo! A little tower blowing smoke is going to make its appearance. You can see a bit of the smoke on the page above it.

Besides that, I am SO HAPPY I'm doing one day off a week now. Yesterday was glorious. I started it off by reading a chapter of my book. Then I played Skyrim (until I died and got frustrated). Then I picked up my stitching and went at it. We also had dinner with some friends and all in all it was an awesome, awesome day. At least in the relaxing sense. It kind of felt like just what I needed.

This is going to be a short post so the last thing I'm going to mention is that Handsome Helpful Fiancé was bemoaning the lack of his appearance on this blog and asked if I could post a picture of him. I'll do one better: I'll post TWO.

One is a picture I've posted before:


And here's a new one you haven't seen:


The first was taken in Texas, and the second when we were still in California. Anyway, that's the man I'm gonna marry!

You are so funny Ewa. Handsome Helpful Fiance might like a better picture. I really had to hunt to find him. lol
You have made some wonderful progress on college. I love that design. I think I told you, that I bought a jigsaw puzzle like that. I would never attempt to cross stitch.

Woohoo for College progress.

HHF looks like he is photobombing his own picture! You do realise he has to be in some of the Wedding photos, they can't all be you and the bridesmaids?

I love your progress on college and I am very happy that your stitchy bug is once again back in town ;-) I hope it'll stay for a while =)

If HHF tries to hide a little more you could make "Find HHF"-pictures ;-) Instead of "Find the man in the coffee beans" we would have "Find HHF in the forest" ;-)

THat's some impressive progress, your bug has obviously returned with a vengeance.
I've recently changed jobs and so sometimes get my days off during the week, and it's lovely to occasionally have a day like that with no commitments and time to read and stitch. Have fun!
