late IHSW post, plus goals!

In my defense, my computer was in for repairs and I didn't get it back until Thursday.  Sigh.

The lack of computer-y distractions did give me a lot of time to stitch!  I've nearly completed page 3 of QS Iris.  I'm not sure I'll be able to finish it this month as I had to burn my entire Saturday on car repairs and other "fun" things, but I'm still proud of how far I've come... especially since I had an unexpected detour with Spring Knotgarden. :)

As you can see, I'm sticking with parking, and it's really working out well for me.  I feel like my speed has significantly increased, and it's very satisfying to see the image come to life in solid blocks, because any little missing area is very distracting.

And now, goals... because next weekend is NaNo time.  OMG. :o

October goals:
- Frame the Lesley Teare mermaid - I swear I'll do it tomorrow!
- Finish page 3 of QS Iris - yessss!
- Stitch part 4 of the PR SAL - nope!
- Stitch part 5 of Octopus Treasure Cave - yessss!
- but I did unexpectedly make progress on Spring Knotgarden, so...

November goals:
- Finish Octopus Treasure Cave! oops, last part is out in December, not November *cry*
- Finish page 3 of QS Iris! already did that :p
- Win NaNoWriMo!  AGAIN!  Because I am crazy awesome!

This year's novel is The Ninth Circle, a tale of love and sacrifice starring a demon who was born in hell (and thus does not understand the suffering of his demonic peers), and the stubborn human prince who will do anything to be reunited with him.  Yes, I love cheese.

If you're doing NaNo too, add me!  I'm Rahenna over there. ^^b


  1. Wow your Iris is so beautiful! I have been thinking of using the parking method and you are selling it very well.


I love comments! If you have a blog, leave me a link so I can follow you. :)
