Goal Achieved!

Last Boxing Day, 26 December 2017, I embarked on what seemed an ambitious target to walk 1000km within one year.   As of Friday 14 December 2018 I have achieved that goal.   Perhaps on Boxing day this year I will up the distance and see if I can maintain the momentum?
I have no progress photos of the Octagonal Box.   All the component pieces have been backstitched and I am currently trying to decide whether I need more than two thicknesses of Pelmet Vilene (Skirtex) as stiffening.   
While I ponder on that I am scratching my hardanger itch and making good progress on The Doily.  A portion of the fourth side needs eyelets and then the fun begins as each of the "medallions" get their unique filling stitches.
This week Little Brother is coming to stay for a day or two so there will be more talking and less stitching but I have the next two weeks off work and have already drawn up my schedule of projects.
The remainder of the Spring Cleaning, the remainder of the Summer Dressmaking and plenty of stitching.

Well done on the walking! Done with two weeks to spare. That's 20km a week. I am in awe.

Enjoy your time with your brother Margaret. It will be good to be off for a couple of weeks, I have the two days off each week.

Well done on your marathon walking. I don't walk as much now as when I had a pushchair! Hope you enjoy your Christmas break.

Congrats on your walking! This has been a low year for me since I broke my right foot in March and still can't quite do the distances I could before the fall. I'm told it takes a full year for the bone to completely fill in and not be an issue.

Well done with your walking goal! I'm looking forwards to see what those two weeks of stitching brought along.
