October Round Up & November Goals


Still waiting on two charts which are on back order so no stash pics just yet.

Now that it's Halloween Night (not that you can tell here...I had one trick or treater!)

October's challenges were just that, a challenge. For some reason I found it hard to stitch this month and as such didn't really get much done.

  • Finish Halloween Rules....No
  • Finish Green Flip-it Series....No
  • Finish Nose Garden....No
  • Finish Hello Kitty....No, it got binned early in the month, so I guess technically it counts?!
  • Finish Witchy Brew....Yes!!
Yes the only thing I managed to get finished was Witchy Brew however I have only one challenge in November and I am going to achieve it!

November's Challenge is *drumroll please*.....

 
FINISH SUPER MARIO THROUGH THE AGES
 
I have been posting about this piece for over a year and I'll be damned if I'm going to blog about it next year!! Now I've been doing some maths (shocking I know given that I struggle even with a calculator) but it's actually achievable to have it finished by the end of the month if I stitch a little every day.
 
Here's how I worked it out:
 
Total stitches in piece: 23,328
Stitches completed: 7,482
Stitches left to work:15,846
No. of stitches required per day to finish: 528
 
Given that I'm working this on magic guide aida that's just under five and a half blocks a day :)
 
Sadly I won't be able to start this until the 3rd as I'm away on training for the next 2 days with work and I really don't want to take my stitching with me so on Saturday I'll have to have a bit on a hermit weekend and stitch around 1600 stitches to catch up (16 blocks)
 
Wish me luck!!! I'll be posting updates every few days
