February WIPocalypse

This month I only stitched on one project, Little Fairies at Play.  I was so close to finishing page 10 at the end of January that I kept working on this project.  I thought I would finish page 10 earlier in the month of February.  But the number of days I am actually stitching keeps getting smaller.  My goal for 2017 was to stitch every day.  But I blew that the first week of January.

I did manage to finish page 10 on February 23.

This puts me at 50% done. 

I am moving on to another project in my rotation for a week.  Then back to this one as it is my focus piece.  I don't know why HAED's are so addictive but they are.

This month we are to talk about what other stitches we enjoy besides the basic cross stitch.  I do enjoy back stitching because it tends to bring the project to life.  And I do save it to the end so it also  signals I am almost done with project.  No back stitching on  HAEDs.

With the last week of warm weather my tulips are up (no buds yet) and my tree buds have opened.  It is now cold again.  Waiting to see what affect this will have on the flowers and trees.
