WIPocalypse now - August blue moon update

Once in a blue moon seems to be my posting frequency of late, so a WIPocalypse update on a blue moon seems particularly apt.

As always, I haven't done as much stitching as I would like, although I am up to 106 consecutive treadmill days. School has also started back up for DD, so my schedule has less flexibility again.

I did do 7 hours on Chatelaine's Convent Herbal Garden, bringing the total to 49:

I expect that the corners will take me a while - I will be very surprised if they are done by next update.

I also completed Part 1 of Papillon Creations "Around the World in 80 Stitches":.

Football season has started up again, and since this is my non-timed piece, Part 2 might actually be complete by next update. We'll see, of course.

I'm still keeping up with my streak on the treadmill, and I've lost 3 pounds since last month. That's 13 pounds since Christmas. I'm aiming for 27 more between now and next June.

Your "Around the World" is shaping up nicely! Keep up the great work on stitching AND on the treadmill!

Beautiful progress on both pieces! The enlarged photos really show the lovely detail of each piece.

Both pieces look really pretty. I love Chatelaine designs, but they are soooo intricate!
