I finally finished page 6 of Little Fairies at Play.  So far 44,108 stitches complete out of 146,700.  Six pages done with 22 to go.  I hope to finish 3 pages in 2015.

Here is how it all looks.  I have unrolled the scroll bars for a full view.

 And a close up view of page 6.
I have to travel for work this week.  I am going to take a small kit from World of Cross Stitching magazine to work on at night in my hotel room.  I will also be taking a few books to read on the plane.  I hate flying.  So I need to pick books that will keep my attention.

WIPocalypse January

Since the last full moon I worked on Little Fairies at Play (still chasing a page 6 finish) and Joy which I finished.

We are supposed to introduce ourselves and tell about our stitching plans for 2015.  I am Cathy.  I work full time and try to find stitching time.  I have just deposited my last child at college and I am living alone for the first time.  I hope this brings me more stitching time.  I enjoy stitching large pieces but I am trying to add smaller and medium projects so I can have some finishes occasionally.

For 2015 on my WIPocalypse page I have listed the projects I would like to start in 2015.  I hope to make alot of progress with a few finishes of the smaller pieces.

I enjoy visiting everyone's pages and looking at their projects.  I find it inspiring.

I am so close to finishing page 6 that I will keep on working on this project this week.

I took my son to college and moved him in yesterday.  It was my 3rd trip to Ball State last week.  I am now home alone and it is the first time I have ever lived alone.  Changes for both of us.

I hope to get more stitching time in after work each night.  With no one to cook for I can eat quick.  My daughter says I will do fine as I have my "activities".  lol  I do bowl one night a week and go to check on my dad 2 nights and then I have a meeting another night.  So I guess most of the time I will not be getting home from work too early.
