Wipocalypse April

 This past month I worked on Cat Cushion and it is moving right along.
I also worked on Little Fairies at Play.  I have been working on it every other week to get some good progress made.

This past week (no picture) I worked on In the Garden.  All of the cross stitching is done and I have started the backstiching.  Instead of switching projects I am going to keep it out and hope to make a big dent in the backstitching.  I have so many other projects waiting to be started.

I did mow my lawn yesterday and walked 4 miles on the River Green Way.  I am at 153 miles.   I only have a month left to hit my goal of 250 miles.

Here is my progress on Little Fairies at Play.  18,136 stitches complete.  Looking at this picture I can see that I have been working on a butterfly.

I was off Friday and was to go on a 13 mile hike with my sister.  But the weather did not cooperate.  40mph winds and temps (before wind chill) in low 40's with showers.  Yuck.  Good thing we did not go as my father went into the ER.  I sat with him all day until he was admitted.  Saturday morning I stopped into my LNS and got fabric for 2 more HAED's.  I will slowly kit them up.  I want to put them both on scroll rods. I may never have another finish if all of the projects in my rotation become HAED's.

 I have been working on my Cat cushion this past week.  There is so much blue background that I have started to do 1 strand blue and then 1 strand of whatever color I am working on.  It really seems to be helping to get thru the background quickly.
 I am late for TUSAL.  Here are my orts.  All of my projects have seen some stitching since the last TUSAL. 
The weather is supposed to be in the 60's today.  I hope to take a walk in the park this afternoon.  I have 129 miles completed towards my goal of 250 by June 1.  This Friday I am off and my sister and I have a 13 mile hike planned.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate.  Supposed to be cool again which is ok as long as it doesn't rain.

 Worked on Little Fairies at Play again this week.  I just noticed when taking a picture that I have been working on a Castle.  17,056 stitches complete.
This is the HAED I bought during the sale.  Faces of Faery 90.  It is much smaller at only 30,275 stitches.  I am going to start kitting this one up to add to my rotation.  I have a total of 4 HAED's and the other 2 are much larger.  They are addictive.
