Fast & Furious Stitching!

Hello again, my stitching followers!!

After my last post, I caught the stitching bug again and set to work on the Hermit.  I got some great stitching time in on Sunday and Monday this week, so much so, that I wanted to post an update.

March 8, 2013 will mark the 1 year anniversary since I started work on the Hermit.  I am hoping that I will finish this current page by that date, which will mean that it took me 1 year to complete 6 pages of chart!!  At that rate, the project will be done in .... 4 years!  (Ha! I'm crazy!)

I am very excited as well because I finally found a box to hold all my cross-stitching stuff.  Right now everything is in plastic bags, so it will be nice to have a home for everything.  I can't wait to get it all organized tonight!!

And, without further ado --- an update on the Hermit.

Bad Stitchy!

Wow.  My bad. Haven't posted in almost a month.

I blame Netflix.

Seriously.  I haven't been stitching much since the New Year.  Aside from Netflix, there was alot going on with me in January.  Things are finally settling down a bit.  I am hoping to get back to more stitching soon.

As for Netflix - hubby and I have been addicted to the new series, "House of Cards".  Great television.  I love Kevin Spacey.  We finished all 13 episodes in about a week.  Then we started a Star Trek marathon.  We've been watching the movies every night this past week.  So good!  William Shatner is great.

But, I have to admit, I miss stitching.  I miss the Hermit.  We are visiting my in-laws this weekend and I brought the Hermit.  I am really hoping I can get some stitching done today.  It's hard to believe but it's almost been a year since I started working on the Hermit.  I have the date written down, it's sometime in early March 2012 that I placed the first stitch.  Crazy!!

I had better get off the computer if I want to stitch this weekend.

Here is a photo of the Hermit's progress so far.

Thanks for sticking with me!
