Just a heads up...be prepared for A LOT of update pics next time I post! Twice a year (April and October), my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, has a worldwide conference, which I am able to stay at home and watch! That means 10ish hours of being uplifted and having my fingers flying (with no distraction of video games...which can be a problem any other time!), in addition to time stitching when Conference isn't going on...plus my Huskers playing tonight (it's a Friday night game...weird, but given what weekend it is, totally works for me!). I'm planning on taking pictures at the end of each stitching block (the Conference sessions are mostly 2 hours...Saturday night is more along the lines of 90ish minutes) and at the end of each day. I'm hoping to finish up page 1...we'll see how that goes.

For more information about General Conference, including the talks that are given (you don't have to be LDS to participate, learn, be uplifted, and feel the love God has for you!), please poke this link! https://www.lds.org/general-conference?lang=eng

And then I worked on the little old guy (does any other Whovian think he looks like the War Doctor???) and more of the mushroom hut...

Got more work done!

Here's the latest pic. Truth be told, I didn't meet my goal of finishing page 3...got really close, though. Had a CTS flareup :sorry: but stitched anyways (nowhere near as much as I wanted to, but I had to do some to keep me sane!).

Also, I started a blog...more WIP pics there! Would love it if you visited!

Looking great! Also sub'd to your blog ;)

EDIT: you might want to adjust your blog though - white text on dark background is very hard to read for some people and hurts eyeballs! :D

Thanks! :clap: :good: :nod

Yeah...sorry about that! I'm having some issues figuring out which combo of backgrounds and text colors will work best. It doesn't help that it's easiest for me to read white text on black background. I'll see what I can do, but don't be surprised if it doesn't change....time will tell (and I have to try and find the time...my lunch breaks are all over the place this week). On a good note, based on what I saw in the email my mom got last night (she also subscribed), the text and images are sent...YouTube vids...not so much.

It takes time to figure out all the best settings! You'll get there :D

(ummm....ummmmm....I tried to post last night...apparently I hit preview instead of submit :sorry: )

Thanks, BMH! :nod

Finally finished page 3! It was my goal for last weekend, but between the CTS flareup (which thankfully is better!) and colorful war wounds all over my hands, especially my dominant hand (1 doesn't put together 114 metal library shelves without having to pursuade the shelves 2 go onto the shelf ends...and the only means of pursuasing was my hands....without getting all sorts of bruises!), stitching has been slow going.

But, here it is...just the even pages to go!
