Stitch/WIP Maynia 2020

Following up from the second iteration of the block party, I decided to jump into another Instagram challenge. Actually, it crossed over a bit with the end of the block party which ended the first week of May.

The goal of StitchMaynia is to start a new cross stitch project each day in the month of may. I modified my goal to attempt to catch up on the Happy Little Stitch Along. I didn’t achieve that goal, and ended up focusing on this King of the Hill piece, because I decided that this will be a Father’s Day present and therefore need to get it finished.

I also started over on this piece I had intended to be a Hannukkah present…two years in a row. It’s been giving me a bit of trouble, clearly. This is the third time starting over, but third times the charm, right?

This was originally going to be a Christmas present last year as well, but I am really bad at estimating how much time these things take. So hopefully it will be done for this year.

I also started to test stitch some patterns I’ve made. Once I finish the King of the Hill piece, then I will focus on these to get the patterns on Etsy.

That goal of catching up? Yeah, not really. I think I only ended up working on this one day.

I did manage to have three finishes, because I’m counting this as a finish even though there are 8 more characters in the full piece. I’ve also got 10 WIPs left. So a total of 13 pieces I started and/or worked on for Stitch and WIP Maynia this year. Here’s a little gallery of everything in one place:

Now it’s time to finish up the King of the Hill piece, catch up on the Stitch Along, and finish all the rest of these pieces.

Stitching Along

I’ve been working lately on catching up on the Happy Little Stitch Along by 8 Bit Stitch (which is still going on if you want to join, highly recommended).

I started out keeping up really well, but as it’s gone along I ended up getting really far behind.

I think at some point I was about 4 clues behind.

Didn’t help that I keep running out of colors that the store also runs out of at the same time.

But I’m almost caught up now, only 1 clue behind.

I’m giving myself lots of time to work on it this week because I just finished up producing two audiobooks.

Also, really excited to be done with the clouds for a bit.

They are really pretty and all, but it’s a lot of large swaths of single colors.

So I’m ready to move on to areas with more bits of more colors.
