Great Wave Stitch-a-Long, part 7

Hi everyone! Apologies for the late posting -- usually I manage to get these written on Saturday and then scheduled for just after midnight my time so that those of you IN THE FUTURE don't have to wait until late on your Sunday to see my check-in. 

But the weather here in Seattle has been so nice -- and much cooler than three weeks ago! -- so we spent yesterday playing and took the paddleboards out on a nearby lake:


It hasn't been all play this past three weeks (not that any of you would fault me if it was!). Work was extra stressful with a new project launch an a new team member who joined at the 11th hour and wanted to make her presence felt... which meant scrapping a lot of work that had already been done. Sigh. 

But more importantly -- I did some stitching! Here's where I finished up last time:

And here's where I am now:

A whole other column! There is still so much to do... but progress is being made. So much sky...

I have realized that it's harder for me to work on big, framed projects during the summer. In fall and winter we spend evenings indoors, which is more conducive to sitting down with a big frame. So I have found myself picking up small projects that I can more easily take outside. 

I'm going to wrap this up so I can check out what the other stitchers in this stitch-a-long are up to. It's always inspiring to see their amazing projects:

See you in three weeks!


  1. This is looking beautiful and I'm glad to hear temperature in Seattle is nicer :D (I had some collegues from there having a hard time working these past few weeks in the heat) I hope things with work settle a bit, I know the feeling haha.

  2. You made great progress on this despite enjoying the beautiful weather.

  3. The cooler temps have been so wonderful - B'ham has been lovely too :) I hear you - it's so hard to get much done with the beautiful weather calling to come outdoors and play. You made lots of great progress though.

  4. you're more disciplined than me, working in columns ^^

  5. I'd love to have a go with a paddle board! You're being so disciplined with the sky. Lots of lovely stitching as always. I know what you mean about the big frame but I still prefer it so I can stitch with two hands.

  6. You have made far better progress than many of us this time Sunny. In the UK we are not used to this heat and though I normally love the sunshine, this year I am finding it very tiring. A sign of getting old I am thinking. xx

  7. That´s what I call great progress!! Well done!!
