Well I’ve had this project for probably at least twenty years, but this year a friend told me that there was no way I could have it done by the end of the year. Of course, me being me, I immediately decided I had to have the stitching done this year. I have no idea of having all the back stitching done too!

I counted approximately how many stitches I had left to do and determined I needed to do 100 stitches a day. Most days I get more than that done, and thankfully there have been very few days where I haven’t gotten that done.

The design is Paula Vaughn’s Quilts For All Seasons: January.

While this doesn’t suit my house, my mom came up with the awesome idea of making it into a project bag. I think it will work really well for that!

Here’s where I was last time:

And here is where I am this time:

I feel like I have made good progress. I really wish I had an app that gave me the percentage done as I know I would be motivated by that, but I’ll just have to keep on with my 100 stitches a day:)

Make sure to check out everyone else in the SAL’s process:)

    1. Thank you! I am super happy with my progress though I sure am finding a lot of mistakes I have to work around. I will start in the middle next time!

  1. That’s so awesome! I’m very into tracking stitches and making progress. I found an app a couple of years ago called Strides, it was designed for health and fitness tracking but I was able to use it for knitting to set a total stitch goal for a project and work towards that. If you’ve already figured out how many stitches you need you might be able to use that if it’s still around.
    You can see a pic of it on my project page here if you can use Ravelry:
