I am continuing to work on a project that is more than fifteen years old. It sat for at least twelve of those years with not a stitch, but since joining this SAL, I am making slow, but steady progress.

The pattern is by Paula Vaughn and while I love it, it no longer matches my home decor style. This lack of purpose definitely slowed me down for a while, however, my mom had the awesome idea of using it on a project bag when I am done. I find myself stitching a bit faster once this was decided.

Then I chose my next project and that finds me hoping to finish this one as soon as possible. A friend of mine doesn’t think I can get it done by the end of the year so I am doing my best to prove her wrong. I’m just that kind of stubborn person!🤣. It would really help if I didn’t knit and read so much though!

Here is where I was last time:

And here is where I am this time:

Shucks my progress doesn’t look very impressive in picture form:(. Oh well, I will continue to work on it little by little. I know I’ll get more done today as I want to finish my audiobook🤣

Please make sure you check out the other people in the group’s projects. They are all truly spectacular and with such variety that there is sure to be something that strikes your fancy.

  1. It looks to me like you made a lot of progress this time. You are such an active person with running and knitting and working and being social I’m amazed how much you get done.

    1. Lol I do all of those things except social🤣, but thank you. I’m just obsessed with accomplishing things and it’s not always the best to be like this

  2. I am 100% behind you in proving your friend wrong ! This piece is definitely worth finishing and I’m sure it’ll look great completed. You’ve made some good progress nonetheless but no one can fault you for preferring knitting 😀

  3. I am rooting for you. You can do it and have a spectacular finish. Your friend has given you great motivation for this. It’s such a charming project too 🙂

  4. come on AJ you can do it ^^
    I’ve slowed down, due to knitting, and need to be more stern with myself & put in more xstitch hours .
