I have a stand and bright stitching area!! The stand allows me to stitch fast when I can see clearly. I also print off bigger patterns that show bigger symbols. Lots of cross stitch needles help since I leave the thread on the needles. These little things make it a bit faster!! Smiley  I don't watch TV when I'm stitching. It slows me down!!! (I might listen to it if my hubby is watching it) I get frustrated if I stitch too slow.

I love stitching and I usually stitch everyday(sometimes for 1/2 hour -- sometimes up to 6 hours)

I like embroidering but I don't have any big projects yet. Undecided My grandma has one to do with me and my mom. I get to embroider a bunch of barns with quilts on them and some quilts that my grandma has the pattern for. I don't know when I am going to start this though.

Much of last year, I was working a horrible job with achingly long shifts, so I didn't touch my BAP after May! Finally picked it back up, and have a little progress to show. This is roughly two days of work.

And my previous progress posts...
The pattern, the glorious floss toss, two weeks in, another two week shot.

Phooka- It looks great so far.

I made the mistake of working on Snow White while feverish with a kidney infection and made a few mistakes.  Not big, noticable mistakes, but ones that might confuse me later on when I pick it back up.  So she's on hold for a while because I'm afraid to look at it...

If anyone needs me I'll be in the angry dome!

I've started working on a zombie cross stitch - a page from the first Walking Dead album. After a week or so of stitching I finally got to the gorey bits!  Smiley

Finished it's going to be about 63 x 100 cm.

It eats you, starting with your bottom.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Everyone's projects look great so far! I have a problem with project ADD (ok, so just ADD in general) but I found something I really like and hope to complete this year. It is Shallow Grave by Jasmine Becket-Griffith from Heaven and Earth Designs.http://heavenandearthdesigns.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=160_17&products_id=2837

^Looks great, it is huge though! I'm thinking about making a cross stitch out of this comic book cover:

Can't decide whether intrigued or horrified by watchmen prequels... That's an incredibly kinky cover. (for something that looks like that might not have been the intention) It'll look great stitched Smiley
