New design and a new update

I got bored with the old design of this blog, so I changed it. I hope you guys like it. I was hoping I would finish the first page of "Envy" by the end of this month, but this is not going to happen sadly.

My husband and I are leaving for the Canary Islands tomorrow morning, and we'll be gone for a week. I'm not bringing "Envy" with me, since I think it'll probably be too hot to do any cross-stitching. In fact, I think it'll be too hot to do anything besides spending time in the swimming pool :-) And I'm also afraid that I would lose "Envy" if I brought it along, I would most likely forget it in the hotelroom or something.

As of tonight, this is what "Envy" looks like:

As you can see, I am still missing a lot of the confetti, and it takes so long to do. I am hoping to finish during next month - and that should be doable, considering it's now the summer holidays and I'm not going back to work before the 15th of August. :)

Here come the confetti stitches!

So this is my progress so far. The confetti stitches are coming up now, and you can already see I've started on them. I love and hate them at the same time. I hate doing them, I hate the counting all the time, but I have a feeling the result is going to be great, so I'm really looking forward to see the development.

So many stitches, so little time ...

I have been extremely busy with work lately. I have a bunch of essays to correct still. At least I am almost done with the oral exams. I had almost three full days this week, just with oral exams. My students did well - well, at least most of them :)

Here's a picture of my progress so far:

This picture was taken last night. Sorry if it's a bit dark. Fingers crossed I'll finish the first page by the end of this month :)

Happy stitching,
