I've put aside the hardanger SAL for a while. Honestly, the number one thing I've learned from it so far is that I don't like embroidery, and I'm not especially fond of wrapping bars either. And the fabric I'm using is a massive cat hair magnet, and I have honestly been enraged by the amount of hair that's been caught in my stitching and wrapped up in my thread. Ugh.
So that's been removed from my WIPs and goals for the year. I have no interest in forcing myself to stitch things that I'm not enjoying - made that mistake too many times in the past, not repeating it again! I'll pick it up again if/when my interest returns. :)
That said, I'm cruising right along on Geranium and I've finished the cross stitching on the top half.
I'm saving the backstitching until the very end, so now I'll just be working on her (massive) skirt and then her legs. I don't think I'll finish this month, but definitely within the next couple of weeks!
I tend to forget how much stitching I can accomplish when I'm having fun and focusing on just one project. I may have to turn the laser focus on something else after this is finished. Well, once I do my Bride's Tree ornament for July...
