Autumnal Abstract - 140 hour update

Good evening all!

I still can't pull myself away from this project and have become even more obsessed with stitching it this last week. Don't tell anyone, but I stitched until 2am Saturday morning! Very naughty but I just wasn't tired and even when I went to bed I still couldn't sleep. Guess I could/should have stitched all night!!

Here are the usual progress pictures:

With the school half-term holidays over, I'm now going to try to get back into a proper routine and prove to hubby that I am aware there is more to life than stitching! Boo :(

See you soon.

All the best and
Happy stitching :)

    1. Thanks Mii. It's hard to believe that it hadn't been stitched on for 8 years and then suddenly it's going to be completed within a couple of months of picking it up again! :)

  6. I completely understand obsessive stitching! But you are moving along so fast, you shouldn't have too many late nights!
