Epic Stitchy Weekends Do Happen

But only when its raining

New Zealand had a week of epic storms.  The town 2 over from us recieved its entire Autumnal rain doseage in 24 hours and promptly found itself cut off from every avaliable land mass.  We did not have it that bad, thank heavens, but there was no way on gods green earth that I was leaving the house for any reason that wasn’t life or death. As soon as wind and rain touch this hair I start to look like I’ve been abducted and mauled by a rabid poodle groomer who has a thing for Krusty the Clown.

So I stitched 😀 Made some pretty cool progress too even if I do say so myself 🙂 Nearly made it through an entire season of Grey’s Anatomy even 😀 I am very late to this show as I only started watching around Christmas time and I’m currently nearing the end of season 5.

Anyway, back to the stitching.

Over the weekend I achieve a rather epic, at least for this confetti driven slow stitching project, 2300 stitches 🙂

Only one and a half pages to go!!!!

As I am driving myself pretty hard on this one I didn’t undertake any other projects so that is the end of this weeks update.  If its any consulation I have been working late this week and as I have been lucky to sit down before 8.45 at night I have been working a little on my rug so there will be 2 things in next weeks update 😀



Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
