This Weekend

A little more done on The Astronomer. I put in a little over 2000 stitches, which is almost a third of a page. I hope I can come close to completing this page by the end of next weekend.

I probably would have gone a bit farther, but I was talked into making chocolate chip cupcakes for the office and that took time away from stitching.

I am really liking this the more I work on it. It's really becoming my focus piece so far this year. The odd thing is when I'm stitching on it I do not notice what it looks like until I step back from it, then it looks like the picture.

Thanks for stopping by.

This is really looking good, well done :-) Sometimes you really do need to stand back and admire your handiwork to get a full appreciation of what you have stitched :-)
Hope everyone enjoyed the cupcakes!
