Medieval Shelf 7

Here is a renewed attempt at posting stitching progress per 10 hours of stitching. Once a week just didn't work for me (as we can obviously tell) just because some weeks are better than others when it comes to stitching progress. But maybe 10 hours will work this time. Maybe. We'll see. Now that I'm not crazed to try to finish something (like College) within a given amount of time maybe it will be easier to keep on top of? Maybe. We'll see. Either way here's my 10 hour before and after of Medieval Shelf:

I always feel like I never get anything done in the time I stitch and then I look at the comparison photos and actually, quite a bit gets done. Amazing. Either way I likely won't make it in time for the June 15th deadline and I've rather come to terms with that.

H³ takes the beast to the dog park 3-5 times a week so she can get her zooms out, as we call them. She's still pretty energetic despite having slowed down and it's great exercise for her. Then she sleeps all day. So mutually beneficial for all parties involved. She could use the extra socialization, too. Win win. But lately she has come to expect it. So around 9:30, when H³ usually takes her, she starts to stare at him. Follow him around. Whine. And she doesn't stop. It's the saddest thing ever. 

I feel like we adopted a furry toddler.

Aww lol our kitten has learned begging which is not good. She just rubs up against us all lovingly until she gets her food. Total ham. Great progress :)

Wow Ewa. Great progress for only 10 hours stitching. Our cats do that in the morning to be fed and I night to get their treats.

I feel the same way about progress sometimes...a picture really does show the difference! I still think you can make the deadline!

Lovely progress =) The little dragon comes out just fine =) I think there is a huge difference between the two pictures.

You can really see the little dragon taking shape now! Photos every ten hours is a good idea.

Great progress! I just love Spangler's work. :)

I hear you on this front stitching sister!! I didn't make the deadline either. Wasn't sure it was worth an unseen free chart to worry about it. It's not like I need another chart LOL!!

Spanglers are fun to work on with all the beautiful vivid colours, so just enjoy, progress is progress. Looks very cool so far.

I have a new dogdaughter and she is very very energetic too. We have yet to go to puppy preschool so at the moment she's just a cute ball of energy and naughtiness

You know, that's part of the reason I blog, I never felt like I got any progress, and taking pictures let me see it, it also lets me see the whole thing rather than the tiny stitches, it's when I take a step back and look at the whole, when I post.
Looks amazing, I feel like I haven't worked on my Spangler piece in ages (and it's actually my focus piece, so it gets more attention than most), this makes me realise that I should get back soon!
