11/2 Progress Photos Can you see any?

Wow is it really Friday already?  This week has been a little tough on me since my baby is teething again...It's been rare that she lets me sleep for more than 2 hours at a time each night, or else decides to forgo nap time during the day.  So I haven't made very much progress craft-wise this week.

I wanted to start making our family Christmas stockings and I did start them...but only got as far as cutting out the pattern.

I also thought I would easily finish an old WIP work in progress "Christ at Heart's Door".  Here is where I had left it from the last time I had worked on it over a year ago.

It is very close to being finished...or so I thought.  This really wasn't the most fun design to work on because it has so much blended colors, fractional stitches, you name it and this pattern has it. 

I thought that I quit working on it because it was so close to the end that I lost interest...but NO.  I started working on this again last week realizing that all I had to do was the backstitching and thought that would be no problem at all.
Boy was I wrong!  This is just a small part of the backstitching on maybe 1/6th of the chart.

And also you tell me if you can decipher the symbols on this legend?

Wait is that image not close enough for you hold on I'll zoom in...

Arg this makes me so mad that there is basically NO WAY to determine the different colors to use for backstitching on Janlynn's black and white chart!

But alas even though I have been completely frustrated I have been trying to plug along a bit when I get some time to myself and have made a tiny bit of progress but my picture came out way too blurry to share it. 

Here's hoping that next week I get a bit more sleep and can have more patience with this project to finally get the stitching finished on it.  Happy Weekend All!


  1. Have a great weekend and I hope you get some sleep!

  2. Hello Lulu, The symbols are crazy, how can you read it? Did you email Jaylynn to ask them to send a replacement.

    Thank you for voting for my site. Are you on Facebook? Please add me

  3. Wow! what interesting backstitch! good luck finishing it.

  4. Do you have the 12 digit code on the cover picture because Janlynn will send you a new chart if you email them xxx
