Looking back at this week's pictures, I've made quite a bit of progress. I hasn't seemed like it as it happened, but it is there.
Today is day 50 and I'm still sticking with Lust. I've been thinking about keeping her out after this challenge. I finished a page in July and I should finish a page at the very end of August or very early September. If I can finish another page in another 30 or so days, I would only have eight full pages and 8 small partial pages to finish. I would really like to see her done before she turns 10 and it's doable. I just don't know if she'll burn me out and take several more years to finish.
I've also dipped my toes into the diamond painting world. So far, so good. It's interesting to see a different interpretation of cross stitch. It almost feels like I'm making a mosiac with tiny little pieces of ...whatever the drills are made out of.
I just need to keep my cats away from this workspace. I've discovered that at least one of them discovered the canvas and tried eating it as I now have teeth holes in a couple of spots. I've learned to keep things covered and/or out of range.

Progress is still being made...just not as much as I would like. Between work, 2 a day football practices, a visit to the DMV, getting ready for school to start and produce from the garden starting to make it's way inside, it's been a busy week.
I have a new driver now so there's a little more stress from that, but I don't have to make extra trips to school and sit and wait during practice. So there's that.
