Humid Slow Sunday Stitching

First, I have to thank those of you who have recently become followers of my blog. It is always great to make new acquaintances. Thanks also to all of you who write comments. I enjoy reading your encouraging words.
Now, it is really humid here on Long Island today. Thank goodness for central air conditioning so that I can still work on some stitching. I was trying to finish the first page of Large Cross-stitch #1 by the end of today, but I don't think that is likely. This is where I was for my last update in mid-August.

I have since progressed to here. Trust me there is difference.
I have been trying to work on this for about a half hour (or one music CD) a day. I can't believe I have 9 more pages!

I am going to try to work on my table runner today also. I am happy to say that I reorganized my basement to make machine sewing a more pleasant experience so I am excited now to work on it. I will be posting some craft room pictures in a future post.

I am joining Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching today. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. 
Thanks for stopping by!

This is coming along beautifully! :) We had the humidity and heat yesterday / storms and rain for most of today so a bit cooler now :)

I can see a big difference. Those stitches take time but are what will make this project great in the end. Well worth your effort. I am constantly doing things to my room to make it more enjoyable. It makes such a big difference

You got a lot done! Lots of time to make all those stitches especially with all the color changes. A 30 minute a day goal is a great way to get things done. (I did that with one quite a few years ago and it is hanging in my hallway.)

That is turning out beautifully! Where did you find the pattern? I really love the sunrise colors of the sky.

Oh man, the humidity on Monday is worse than Sunday! Pool time.

My only previous experience with an overall cross-stitch project is a Christmas stocking. I forgot how tedious all the color changes were when I bought this pattern. This is for my son though so I really don't mind at all. I just have to keep working on it steadily.

Pictures of the craft room coming soon. I just have to write the post.
