Three Down and Nine to Go!

As of Feb 29 - I have completed three pages. This is some type of record for me. Just 23 days of stitching...14,823 stitches!

 

I purchased some Piecemakers needles. Vonna had mentioned how wonderful they are. And she isn't lying. They sing in the fabric. Perfectly balanced and smooth. 

Nothing new to report - a bridge near us will be imploded April 15th. I went and took pictures of it the other day. 


It is (I believe) the last of its type in the county. There have been 3 others taken down near my home that were the same kind. Guess it is the end of an era. This one was built in 1948. A new picture for my history wall. The price of progress? 

Last Sunday we finally caught up watching all the Downton Abbey we've missed these years. Took us a month to watch all 6 seasons. So, Sunday I will watch my first and last 'live' Downton. It's amazing how invested you can become in a tv show. I have the ending I would like to see in mind, but I hope they do even better than I hope! 

Tonight has turned into a stitching night. At least 6 hours with little to no interruptions! Woohoo. No dinner to make - no tv I have to watch. Although, I did pick up the last Terminator movie today. Think I may save that for tomorrow. 

I hear my needle calling my name!

Congrats on the awesome progress Denise. How sad that they will be taking the bridge down. At least you have a great picture.

I knew that bridge photo was going on the wall! Your new needles really know how to fly. Love this design and the gorgeous hues.

Wow you really are stitching this quickly! I too bought some Piecemakers on Vonna's recommendation. They are lovely.

Great progress, that's an intense piece!
What a cool bridge, too bad it has to come down.

That is an amazing number of stitches, wow! And how sad to see the bridge gotten rid of, I love the architecture of it.

The bridge is lovely. Made me think of "Bridges of Madison County". Downton Abbey is amazing!
