My progress on Jolly Old Fellow has been slower than I expected - it's the confetti stitches that are slowing me down. I'm also blaming the confetti stitches for my excessive floss use. I've not been able to adopt the carrying floss technique, and I can only ever control one needle when I'm stitching, so I finish off the threads after stitching each set of symbols, and get a new piece of floss for the next group of the same symbols. Sometimes that means one length of floss per stitch. I know that's wasteful, but these days it's the only way I can keep control of the situation. And the result is that my Totally Useless SAL jar is growing by leaps and bounds.
I now expect to finish page 4 sometime in the coming week.
