Well, then life happens and I get put in my place. Doesn't happen often but I have to be honest with myself, re-evaluate the situation and create a new game plan .. because at some point I'm going to make up those laps!
I started off great and realized I was a few stitches off of the pattern, I started taking out the stitches to get back on track, when "clip" ... the fabric was cut! Uggh! No back up fabric either...that wont happen again.
The next day I purchased multiple pieces of fabric for back up and one for this project and away I went. I started stitching again on Friday and as of yesterday I'm 98% complete with the 1st Installment. I'm so proud of myself..beaming with pride and joy. Thinking to myself how excited I am to update my blog with my update as to what happened including how I've gotten myself ahead and almost ready to start on installment 2.
"You've got mail.." I read my emails this morning and what's in my inbox..Installment 3. Ok ok ok -- I get it, I will just have to be O.K. with being behind. I will concede but only for the time being..in the back of my mind, I'm planning tactics on how to get caught up. ;)
The following are a few pics -- more can be found on the Around the World Tab above:

You're probably wondering what the following picture is... we'll I did say in my opening Blog that I have random thoughts -- well this is one of them. I often wonder what the back everyones cross stitch looks like. My daughter cross stitches too, and after she shows me her progress..it's always followed by -- let me see the back. I honestly think this has something to do with my OCD..personally the back of my fabric has to be clean and all strings tucked away. I do not judge others..I just love seeing how everyone does theirs too.
Thanks for reading :)
