My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hello Friends,

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving that was full of TO MUCH FOOD! I ate so much I was stuffed for the entire weekend. Makes it hard to move around so it seemed like the perfect time to just sit and stitch. Ha ha ha

Well luckily for me the frog left me alone for the majority of the week!  That helped me with getting a page finish for Shades of Blue - YAY!!!

Shades of Blue
Progress as of 11/27/16

Total progress on the piece

This piece is now two-thirds of the way complete but the other third may just have to wait until after the New Year.  I am going to look for an ornament to stitch for Jacob for Christmas. If I have time I will do one for everyone because of course I haven't thought about it and now it is the last minute! 

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update


Evening Friends!

This week I picked up one of my favorites from the WIP pile, Shades of Blue. I finished one color on my current page after a lot of frogging because of miscounting. I hope the next week goes a lot smoother with this piece!

Sunday's Stitchy Update

Evening Friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful week and got in lots of me time to do stitching or what ever it is you enjoy.

Thursday I picked up Dreamcatchers to work on.  You would think the feathers would be kind of easy to work on but they really are not.  First of all the chart does not not clearly show which symbol is being used for the each section and there are tons of color changes. Granted it will all look great once it is finished; it is just time consuming. 

Anyways...this is where I was when I picked it up

Progress as of 11/06/16

I plan on being finished way before next Sunday!

My Sunday Stitchy Update...

...in the middle of the week.

Sorry, I was not able to post my regular update on Sunday.  Life so often gets in the way of the fun stuff.

I did finish the cross stitching on my Halloween banner in time for Halloween but unfortunately I could not get to the final finishing stage to make it into a banner.

Ta Da... here it is!

Trick or Treat Coasters
Designer - Angela Pullen Atherton
of Pullen Designs
Finished 10/30/16


Now I seem to have a while to make it into a banner but I will try to get it finished way before then! Now to pick something else off the pile and finish it off...which will it be?
