Week 17 Beauty and the Beast

I was so close to how much I wanted to get done this week. I have less than 100 stitches to completely finish the water up until the first overpass, but alas, there is housework to be done before my piano students come over tomorrow. I played harp in the pit orchestra for a local production of Camelot this last week, so that took up 5 evenings. All of the stitching I did was during the day, mostly while my little girl was sleeping :) Anyway, here are my pictures for the week, an overall and a close up (sorry the overall is a little blurry):

Don't expect too much from me this next couple of weeks. I will still post, but my Mon-Fri 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. will be taken up by my new part-time job. It should only go for a few weeks, as it's scoring tests and school will be out for the summer soon, but I gotta do what I can to help out right now. *Sigh* Why does being a grown-up suck sometimes, what with money and bills, etc. etc. etc... Oh well, life goes on :)


  1. It's looking really good!
    I completely understand the whole job thing. That's why I don't get to work on mine as much as I would like. 7:30 - 4:30 is already spoken for, and when I get home, I usually have to start cooking and then if there are any other plans, I don't get to work on my project at all. (Hmm, maybe that's why I'm so slow).
    Anyway, great job so far. It'll just get done one stitch at a time. Hang in there!

  2. Wow - on top of cross stitching, you teach piano and play orchestral harp? New role model!
