2015 | Day 134

Day One Hundred Thirty-Four

DONE!!!  I filled in all of the circles on the linen snake!!!

Over the last three days I have been working on and off on the linen snake's embroidery floss circles and I cannot believe I am finally done with them!

I am definitely taking a break from sewing for a few days...then I will figure out what my next step will be for the linen snake's construction.

2015 | Day 131

Day One Hundred Thirty-One

I don't know what is in the air today but I am so exhausted and physically and emotionally drained that I cannot even put it into words.  I am okay, just super super out of whack.  I am taking the night off.  If you need me I will be conked out in front of the tv with elevation and a cold pack...and a giant box of tissues.  One thing I know for sure -- it is NOT the pit -- I know what that feels like and this is maybe a tenth of the intensity of that...but still just rendering me totally incapable of I guess that is something anyway that is something decent to say about all of this.

Day One Hundred Thirty

Nearly seven stripes closer to done...I just could not move the hoop one more time...missed the last two circles on the seventh stripe (for tonight).

2015 | Day 129

Day One Hundred Twenty-Nine

I know I am sounding like a broken record, but all I have to report for today is more filling in of circles on the linen snake.  It seems like today dragged out forever and still, not much progress was made...hmmm.

2015 | Day 128 ( and a nod to Day 127)

Day One Hundred Twenty-Eight

Between yesterday and today I filled in the outlined circles on ten stripes of the linen snake.  Last night I was having a hard time staying awake and I missed my midnight deadline...I only did three stripes.

Ten more stripes done.

Day One Hundred Twenty-Six

I got through another six stripes of circles on the linen snake today.  I have another thirty-four stripes to go, so around six more days of sewing and filling in the circles with embroidery floss.

2015 | Day 124

Day One Hundred Twenty-Four

I have been working on a bunch of things today...a little more on some, less on others...but busy all day and evening...yay.

In no particular order (because I kept coming back to things) I worked on:  the really long horns guy, Biteyou (the original), the 2snake, and -- even though I told myself I was taking a day off from sewing -- the linen snake circles (no photo).

I added some light color to the 2snake so that I would be able to keep track of his back vs his belly when I start to work on him.
I decided that I wasn't happy with the finish of the really long horns guy after all...he needs more work, more spiffing up.
I always get more paint on me than on whatever I'm working on.
He had some areas that needed paper repair as well...and he is getting an overall look to (hopefully) pull him together.
Taking a giant step towards finishing up on the original Biteyou...this is really hard for me.
I need to keep a bunch of stuff going on at once right now.  I have a lot of ideas swimming around and I am jotting them down into my sketchbook but I also need to physically work on several things at once...I just need to.
