I first started this blog due to "popular demand" for me to to share my cooking and quilting results in blog form as it was easier for friends and people who know me to see what I'm up to, especially compared to just an image hosting site. Now I blog because I enjoy sharing what I do and hope that I do in some way inspire people to try new things out as well.
Yesterday brought you the return of my Celtic Wolf progress reports. I had passed the 8000 stitch mark and things were looking good - apart from the area of copper in the neck. I mentioned yesterday that I wasn't happy with it and while racing about as fast as my dodgy knee let me doing shopping and getting the kids off to ex I decided they had to come out. This was easier said than done as by the time I'd done the shopping etc. and then written the March ornament blogs, the dA uploads of the March ornaments and written about Wolf, it was already dark outside and the ripping had to be done in artificial light.
For many people this wouldn't be an issue but I have a dent in my cornea's that reflects light into one half ( a \ in fact) of that lovely X shape you see candle flames get on Christmas cards and suddenly it's a whole different ball game. I knew I had to get it done or I'd keep putting it off so I gritted my teeth and went on feel about as much as I did on sight.
End result of yesterday's hectic day: -88 stitches
Stitches done: -88
Total stitches: 7962
Total backstitches: 42.76 inches
See you tomorrow, when I will hopefully have more to show hehe.
