An hour and some songs

An hour of time and a Luke Bryan CD and look what I managed to stitch! All of that tangerine color was stitched on Saturday morning. You can see that I strayed a little bit into the next page to the left in order to finish off a strand of floss.
There were over 300 stitches of that color to be completed yesterday. I just stitched along with the music to get it done. Now I can move on to another color. Unfortunately, there are no more large swaths of color left to this page. I hope to spend some more time stitching on Baker Beach today, but maybe not an hour this time. Here is a wider view. I just have to stitch a little bit into the mountains to finish this 7th page out of 10
I am not teaching at university this semester, so I should have more time each weekend  and some nights for some crafting. I have been steadily working on my daughter's On The Tracks infinity scarf also. I added a couple of rows to the pattern in between the two open work rows as she wanted something slightly wider.
Her birthday is tomorrow, but this really wasn't necessarily intended as a birthday gift anyway. She had a different request that I was having trouble finding until I stopped in a little local store yesterday. I will send both to her as soon as the scarf is completed.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. Tomorrow I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are up to. 
  
Thanks for stopping by!

Once you start, it can be hard to stop stitching. That is an impressive project to be working on so long.

Jill said...

Oh My! 300 stitches on one color is great progress. Even bits of stitching time is moving towards a completed project. Enjoy your upcoming blocks of free time.

That's a lot of stitches in one color. I think that is why I got stopped on my cross stitch. Maybe I should pull it out for some loving.....

The bridge is coming along so well.

I am always impressed by your perseverance I am not sure I would have been able to stick to such a large project. It will be amazing when it is finished. Love the scarf.
