F Word *Does happy dance* Actual F word

I know dancing is a bit of an extreme reaction, but it's so rare that I actually manage an F word (especially one where I'd been stressing about the time frame I'd set myself) that I have to celebrate at least a little bit.
I'm set up for a couple of stitching challenges this month, but then I have a new start planed, maybe two... woo hoo on all front.
Now I can go back to the land of colour and variation!

So close...

The title says it all really, I'm so close. I'm optimistically saying that another week will do it, but I suspect that that's being a little ambitious. I did manage quite a lot last week but Ben was away so it was pretty much all I did in the evenings, plus I had two days off mid-week so I've really flogged myself to get to this point this week, but I'm nearly there, colour isn't that far off in my future, I can feel it!

A bit more

It's definitely growing, I am definitely getting there, I am in no way craving bright colours and wishing that I could work on my other projects. I have rather ambitious plans for this week (I'm always over ambitious, but let's give it a shot), but if I do manage to complete them as I plan then I'll suddenly feel a lot better about getting this finished!

It grows

I meant to post this picture on Monday, but have spent the last two days forgetting, meaning that I am actually a little further on than this now, but it's growing, and that's the important thing, even if the chances of me finishing this on time are practically zero!

Whole sentences have made an appearance

It's growing, woohoo. I've got a month to finish it... ARGH Doomed!
Why do I do these things to myself? I've got 10 lines to do in 8 weeks, the first four have taken me about four weeks. I'm officially doomed! I have prety much immersed myself in it this week and am trying to not work on others things (why do you instantly get a pull from other projects when you've got a deadline?). I reckon I can get quite a lot done then next couple of weeks due to how my shifts and days off fall, after that I need to re-assess and see if this really is practical or if I'm just torturing myself for fun!
I accidentally bought four charts from HAED this week, then I'm involved in a Paine Free RAK event so I've been gifted two for joining in the event, and will then receive a gift voucher or charts from my partner at some point in the month as well... and then I accidentally bought two lovely crochet hooks last night, and was gifted another one on Thursday (although it's now been confiscated until my birthday). Help me, drowning in projects!
