Coming in on Approach

I've been soooooooooo busy!

I had to work all of last week except for Thursday, when I spent all day at the dentist.  This week I had to work all day Sunday and then spent Monday with Mum's family and Tuesday with Dad's.

So, of course, the Eagle is not done, but I'm getting closer!

Here's the result from IHSW - added Medium Grey

and then I got about half of the Dark Grey done and finished up later:

Since then I've added Medium Golden Brown:

And while stitching that, discovered I had skipped some quarter stitches of Medium Yellow up among the feathers of his wingtip, and that I had completely ignored the line of Golden Brown (the lightest shade) that highlights his wing.  So I added those and a few quarter stitches that I had also managed to skip on his head:

Now I have only four colors left!  Two shades of brown, two shades of red, and then on to the backstitching!  (And a couple of dark grey stitches I only just now saw were missing!)  I'm currently working on a red, and although I had to work today and I have to work the next four days, two of them are at the job site that I'm allowed to stitch, so I have some high hopes!

Also, there was a payday, therefore there was WSnB!

And I'm trying to decide which chart to knock off my wishlist in the HAED sale that starts tomorrow!  I'd love to do another layaway, but I swore I'd pay one off first.  Anyone else going to grab one?

Posting Soon!

I'll try to have my IHSW post tomorrow - worked all day, went to a Christmas Party, and came home to a house with no power.  Just came back on @ 12:30 am! (My blog time is about 3 hours off, must figure out how to fix that!)  Have to work all day tomorrow and then four hours tomorrow evening for another job, but if I'm alive once I get home, I'll post :D

More Eagle

Added Medium Yellow:

Light Yellow:

and Dark Gold:

I have now moved on to the second shade of grey.

Here's my mother's afghan, in all its poor, half-finished glory.  A little over half, actually.  Still a long way to go, though.

I have also added a new page with my afghan plans for 2013!  They are a bit ...um, insane? lol!

I'll have more Eagle pics in a day or two, I hope!  I'm going to bite the bullet and focus on it during IHSW, and then get back to Lovers in January.

Way Behind

I'm way behind on EVERYTHING, so there are lots of pictures and not much progress.

Here's the white done on the Eagle - you can barely see it.

And the next shade done - it's Golden Brown and there were only about 30 stitches.

And the dark blue.

I've got about 50 stitches of Medium Yellow left so maybe I'll be posting a pic tomorrow.  I've given up on getting this one framed in time for Christmas, but it won't be the first time someone in my family has gotten a rolled-up project with a note promising framing! XD

I finished another little kit:

And mum's afghan is on repeat #73, over halfway and trying to finish as my achy wrist allows.  I don't know what I did to it.  It's not carpal tunnel, though.  I'll take a pic of it for the next post. **Edit** Not my wrist, a picture of the afghan! lol!

And there was stash, of course.
