Progress and Pacing

Hello everyone. I've had a fairly busy week meeting up with friends and attempting a summer clean in my very messy bedroom. I have found the time to stitch though (always!) and here's my progress on my lovely LK . . .

I really love the colours in this piece and I'm really enjoying stitching on it. I've also been putting in stitches in other smaller project. This is Peace Tree by Rose Krizan, a freebie I found somewhere. I'm stitching it 1 over 1 in only DMC 115.

This is a really sweet little design that has to be done in the daytime, not like the block colour of the LK that can be stitched in the evenings on front of the TV. This is my first piece over one and I'm not finding it too bad. I might find more small pieces to do like this.
In other stitchy news, I've got new stash coming from all over the place. I found some stunning bargains on ebay that should be finding their way to me soon, as well as a couple of things from 123stitch. I've got some Prairie Schooler designs coming soon, ready for the upcoming Rotating Designer exchange that I am taking part in - it's very exciting!
And in non-related stitchy news, results day is less than a week away - this is the reason for the "pacing" in my title. It's all I can think about. I'm so very nervous about it, I can't let myself think about it late at night or I won't sleep. Although it is comforting to know that this time next week, I'll finally know my results. They decide whether or not I go to my chosen Uni in September, I just hope I've done enough.
I hope you are all enjoying a lovely summer filled with stitching,

Your stitch over one looks really good and your LK is lovely, all her designs are.

Love both your projects :-) Over one is not too bad in good light, and it looks so delicate when it is done :-)

Love your pieces you are working on. Can't wait to see your EBAY treasures.
It is hard to be patient waiting for your UNI news.

Lovely designs! I might have to try and track down that freebie. At least you don't have to pace to much longer. I admit I'm glad I didn't go to Uni in the UK - here I just ticked a box for my first choice of Uni and knew I'd be in if I passed university entrance!

Over one stitching is my favorite and your piece is looking so pretty, Bekca--love the DMC 115!

Keeping my fingers crossed for you that you get into your chosen university :)

The LK design is such a sweet piece! Good job with the over 1! I've also been doing some over 1 ornaments. I'm not finding it as bad as I expected either.
Good luck with your results!

Your WIPs are lovely! What count are you stitching over one in? I've been stitching over one on 32ct and needed a good magnifying lamp to do it witout killing my eyes!
