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.
