I’ve done it again. I have once again given myself the impossible task of finishing a cross stitch by a set date that I have absolutely not chance of achieving hahahaha ~goes and sits in the corner and thumps head against wall~
Why why why do I do this to myself? As if my job, kids and all the other things I have going on aren’t stressful enough, why do I set myself up with further angst and sleepless nights?
Don’t panic, I am not expecting and answer to that one as I am fairly confident that there isn’t one and that I will obviously do this to myself again at some stage in the future lol 😀 Lets just put it down to my ability to thrive on a deadline and leave it at that.
So I have set myself the impossible task of completing Tash & Kids by mid March. This means that I have to stitch 500 stitches a day from here on if I wish to have any chance of achieving this goal. As this is a confetti rich pattern the chances are slim to none but I am going to give it everything and hope for the best. Might even take a couple of days off work to try and help with this goal.
Last weeks progress was only 1110 stitches so that was not a great start but as I only figured out the 500 a day thing on Sunday I will let that slide.
This weeks goal is definitely a page finish and at least 3000 stitches by Sunday. We can but try 🙂
During the week I had a day where for some reason my eyes were not behaving properly and I couldn’t see to stitch properly. I did a lot of driving that day so wonder if it was maybe a bit of sun strike or something off the road. I didn’t want to sit and do nothing so I picked up the floor rug that I am doing 🙂 Made some good progress on her too 🙂
I am actually really enjoying this and might just get the fox kit that they have after Tash & Kids and this one are done and do it up for Kayla for Christmas.
See there I go again, adding craft stress too my life hahahaha ~back in the corner going dribbly~
