Breast Cancer Mandala update

Previously on the Breast Cancer Mandala update... Ok I watch too much tv. :) But it's so much fun to listen to while I'm stitching. So this is where I left off, pretty pathetic huh? Well, no longer!

As I said yesterday when I posted my TUSAL update, I have made huge progress. I took a pic in the middle of the week because I was really surprised at how much I had accomplished. The pic on the right I just took a couple of minutes ago. I kinda slowed down by yesterday evening, but I was so anxious for Friday to get here, I just couldn't stay awake for very long last night. For an insomniac that is quite rare, so I jump at any chance I get to sleep during "normal" sleeping hours.

This is really stitching up pretty quickly. I figure another 2 weeks of rotation and this one should be done, maybe sooner, just because the ribbons should go pretty quick as they are mostly large chunks of one color. This border is pretty intricate and I love how detailed yet simple the design is. Kind of an oxymoron isn't it? The dimensions seem to be just right to turn this into a trivet, I think. I haven't measured it yet, but then I will get to look at is all the time and it will even be functional.

I did my RNG a little different this week...I know what is up next already. I'll be working on The Quiltmaker for the week. This is probably the oldest pattern that I have, that was planned for many many years ago, before I lost my stitchy bug didn't have a place to stitch. So it was a combination of both. If I make the big strides this week again, I'll post midweek updates too. We'll see how it goes. So until next time...Happy Stitching!!
