SPWN Update

Well, I have fallen farther behind on this than I thought I would. I'm very happy with my stitching rotation but this piece has taken a hit because of it. The way I do my rotation is: I assign myself a project for every day (evening) of the week and if I'm able to stitch on that day then I work on the project assigned to that day. Bridal Showers and meetings have not given me the time for this project because of the days I have assigned it to.
So above is the upper left hand corner, and below is the entire piece so far. Last night I ran out of NPI #133, which is the main yellow used in these mansions so I'll need to get more of that.
This is part V and Martina came out with part VI one day early. I'm sure she thought this would bring great joy to the people doing this class, but it brought a huge *ugh* from me.

SPWN is coming along nicely. I just received my kit from ECS today, and the fabric 2 weeks ago, so I really don't have another other excuses to put off starting mine.

You are so funny! I think you need to keep a journal on this piece so you can remember how you came to give birth to it!! LOL It looks amazing...and I know you're going to "forget all about the pain," once you get it finished and framed! :))
Love and hugs,

I can definitely see why you had the response you did ;o) The piece is looking incredible though and I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.

I am soooo amazed with your SPWN.
The colors are gorgeous. Not fun to run out of a floss you need to continue.
Happy stitching.

It's gorgeous, such jewel like colors. But all that detail, I really admire someone that can stay focused and do one of these.

Your St Pete's is looking so nice. I am only on part 4, but I know what you mean about the "Ugh" when a new section comes out and you're not done with the old! Keep it up-you are doing a great job!
