May 2017 update

Nearly done with page 7 – just three colors to go. And then page 8 is only thirteen columns wide, with just 8 colors left. Looking forward to turning the corner and heading back the other direction!

April 2017 update

I feel like I’ve gotten back on track with efforts this month. Can’t wait to completely finish the top row! Right now I’m working on four pages at once (7, 8, 15 and 16), so the going is slow. Looking forward to pulling out pages 23 and 24 as I work my way back across towards the middle. Hoping to get to the halfway point on the next row down by year’s end.

March 2017 update

Finished page 6 this morning! And, see the stitches on the far right? That is page 8, just inside the black border. From here I plan to finish pages 7 and 8 and then work back across, from page 16 to 15 and so on.

February 26

I really fell off on my efforts this month – too many days off from a too busy schedule. But still I see progress so I’m happy. Just for fun I’m also posting a photo of the back. I am usually a super neat stitcher but with this piece it’s just impossible. Good news: the small amount of stitching (just 13 columns) of page 7 is in sight! 

January 26, Year 2

Quick update. A slow start getting back in to this but there is still some progress so I’m happy.

December 2016 update

I’m back on my map. In the month I took off, I finished three other projects that had been languishing.

First, a pair of socks that waited far too long for completion: 

I love them and I’m so glad they’re finally done. Next up is The Queen Bee Sampler by Shepherd’s Bush – the second stitch along for our store this year:

And finally, Cinnamon Stars by Plum Street Samplers – which was the first stitch along for our store this year. I can’t wait to get these last two framed! 

So for 2017 I’m going to TRY to keep other projects on track despite work on the map. Hoping to finish page 5 of the map this year. That leaves just pages 6, 7 and a few columns on page 8 before I get to start the second row…

November 26 Update

Here is my last month of progress for the year. I have decided to take a one-month break so that I can focus on completing a free other projects that aren’t getting much attention. Hopefully I can get a few of those done, which should energize me 

to get back to the Map.
