WIPocalypse for March 5th

I am joining WIPocalypse 2015 for the first time this year. Measi asked us to answer the following question in our blog: If money – and time – were not limiters, what projects would be on your stitching bucket list? I am not sure that I have a good answer. Until recently, neither money nor time were much of concern for me and I really didn't have a bucket list. I still don't. I work on what I want to, when I want to. I guess I would like to have more time to spend on Large Cross-stitch #1 so that I could finish it and start working on Large Cross-stitch #2. 
I would also like to spend more time designing and stitching my own charts. I really like the design process and I had hoped to one day package and sell my charts. Unfortunately, I am only one cross-stitcher and I design slightly faster than I can stitch the samples. Believe it or not, none of my friends are cross-stitchers. 
I haven't made much progress since my last update of Large Cross-stitch #1.You can read yesterday's post to find out why my progress has been so slow.
This was last week:
and here is where I am as of today.The rocks at the bottom of the bridge are really taking shape now.
I am hoping to spend some quality time with this piece over the weekend.

Also linking up with Nina for Design Wall Friday.

 An update for my readers. Mom will be having her pacemaker replaced in June. Her arrhythmia doctor doesn't foresee any problems. Such a relief. Hopefully all will be calm for a couple of months.

Thanks for stopping by!

I've been watching this project with real interest, it is growing so wonderfully! I can't wait to see it when it's finished...although no pressure! I hope your mum gets through everything OK.

Your bridge-Project is looking very good.
I hope that your other private obligations turn out as good as your cross stitching.
