greetings from NaNo land

I'm just a hair shy of 7k words for my NaNoWriMo novel, which puts me ahead of the standard daily NaNo pace, but about 1k behind where I personally want to be by the end of the day. I plan to go easy on weekdays and only push for 1k per day, and make up for it by writing 3k on weekends and holidays. Seems to be working well so far as it's not even 11am! It'll be easy to pump out another 1k later on...

Between writing sessions, I've been plugging along on QS Iris.

At this rate, it may be finished by the end of the month!

Then again, maybe not... because my wife and I are starting Wentzler's Day and Night today. I've wanted to stitch Night for ages and I actually started it once upon a time when I was a teenager. Got through a good chunk of the figure, but my stitching was horrible back then and I tossed the WIP when I found it a couple of years ago! Yes, it was THAT bad.

So in stashy news, I ended up buying six Wentzler patterns from including three I already have in books. Oh well, it's easier to print them that way...
