Minimal progress

There has been minimal progress this week as I am up to my ears in Math. As I have said before, I am teaching two classes of Linear Mathematics and Matrices at a local university. My 70 students handed in their first homework assignment for grading last Wednesday. I found out that the assignment I gave was way too long for me to grade the entire thing.....but that is what I have spent all day Friday and Saturday doing. It is going to take me most of Sunday to finish. Future assignments will be shorter or I will pick and choose certain problems to grade. I was also called to sub on Thursday as well as tutor that afternoon. 

Not much stitching going on for me lately, but I made a little bit of progress on 2010 Santa. Here is where I was last week. 
Here is where I am as of Saturday night. 

Looking at my pictures, I can see that I did make some progress on Baker Beach this week, but I really don't remember working on it. This is last week's post:
and this is where it stands now:
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. I hope to work on one of these today. I will be joining Super Mom - No Cape for the Stitchery Link Party.
Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are up to.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sometimes we forget our progress and then are surprised by it / that's the way with the slow stitching sometimes :) Lovely.

Busy times at my house too...at least we both found a little bit of time for some slow stitching this week. Math and science were my favourite subjects in school.

CathieJ said...

I was quite pleased when I looked at the pictures. Thanks for visiting.

Quilter Kathy said...

Hope you can fit some stitching in between marking to make it more relaxing!

Renee said...

I can see visible progress on both pieces! Lovely work. I hope you are able to find a little more stitching time for yourself this week. (I get grumpy without mine - lol!)

Kaja said...

It's a busy time of year all round, but you are still making progress. Sounds like shorter assignments are the order of the day!

Suzanne said...

Any progress in still progress. Your work is beautiful!

I think it is important to look back, like you said we make more progress than we think. A few stitches everyday sure do make a difference.

Ivani said...

The progress are visible. It is in my plans stitching some squares with Vintage Santas for this Christmas. Have a great week. Hugs

Good progress on your projects; I cannot get myself to do ANYTHING--I need to re-evaluate my projects.....do you start your cross stiteries in the middle or at the bottom? i am new to counted cross stitch. hugs, Julierose

You're making great progress! I think it always happens when you're not really looking - it's sneaky like that! And University level maths - I'm in awe :D Hope you managed to do *some* relaxing this weekend. Have a great week Cathie.

Jeanna said...

You are super busy but there was definitely noticeable progress on your skiing santa as well as Baker's Beach piece.

Christine Barnsley said...

A little progress is still progress! Both projects are looking great! Christine x

Sarah Tate said...

Such impressive work!

Laura said...

Slow progress is still progress! You'll get there!

Hi Cathie, You are progressing very well - it's so tricky stitching the shading parts. Just getting the threads ready to stitch takes time, doesn't it! Don't you find that taking pictures of your stitching for your blog helps you to see that progression more? Barbara xx

That's one of the great things about blogging about our projects... we can look back at photos and see progress. With all that you've got going on with teaching your classes, any progress is to be celebrated.

Thanks so much for linking up to this week's Stitchery Link Party and for the link back. Aloha hugs!

Hello. I discovered your lovely blog via Flashin Scissors. I'm so impressed with your beautiful needlework. I just started doing needlepoint and I love my new hobby. The piece above of the bridge is amazing!

Threeundertwo said...

I love both of these projects! Can't wait to see Baker Beach finished.

CathieJ said...

Thank you.

CathieJ said...

I just have one needle going at a time so I need to finish a color before starting the next. I know other stitchers work with several needles, but I find that more confusing. I do find that taking progress pictures helps keep me upbeat about the length of time Baker Beach is taking.

CathieJ said...

I love needlepoint as well as cross-stitch. It has been awhile since I did some though. Thanks for visiting and for your kind comments.

CathieJ said...

Thanks, it will be a while.
