College 85, or, 3,658 stitches left

I didn't finish by Christmas and I didn't finish by the end of the year. But I've stopped stressing out avout it and am going to finish, wash it, get it framed, and still give it as a gift to my parents without the added stress.

So let's see where I was with this project at the beginning of the year, last time, and now.

Start of 2015:

last time:

And now, after another 10 hours of stitching, roughly:

Almost there!

Basically, I didn't make any of my goals for the year. And I don't care! 2015 was an absolutely CRAZY year! I got to meet Michael Fassbender (my favorite!) and Kate Winslet and my butt made it into the Steve Jobs movie, after which I got to work some more gigs until I got a corporate job I actually really like. Then H³ started grad school and we got a dog! All in all, a wonderful year, despite the lack of stitching finish.

With that I leave this year off with a picture of our little beastie, being a super snuggler.

Happy New Year! and Happy Stitching in 2016!

College 84, or 5,218 stitches left.

Will I make it to Christmas? Probably not. Am I going to try anyway? You better believe it.

Here's another 10 hours of stitching.



I must admit I've been a little distracted from stitching because we adopted a furbaby yesterday.

Meet Xena:

She is a five month old Formosan Mountain Dog, Border Collie mix. She is also a terror. And the cutest little thing ever.

H³ has been training her practically every moment since we got her yesterday morning and she's already indicating when she needs to go outside, jumping up less, and starting to sit.

So I hope everyone is ready for furbaby photos regularly, along with stitching posts, of course.

And if you're wondering how the 10K in the Marin Headlands went, well, it didn't. I got the Plague. Missed worked, felt like death, and it's still clinging to me a bit. So I chose to skip it so I didn't get pneumonia, as it was also raining that day.

So that's that! Happy stitching!
