My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hi everyone...

Here I am; a day late! I have a good excuse this time though, our modem went out and I they had to come out this morning and swap it out with a new one. Hopefully this one will last more than eight months. This is what I have been working on this week...

Hi Friends!

Just a quick post this week. I continued working on my SAL and I finished part 2! 2 parts down, 2 parts to go. I have made a few minor changes along the way...some intentional and some not so much!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hello Stitchers!

Hope that you had a wonderful week and you were able to get in some craft time for yourself! This week I worked on a couple of different pieces.

First up is the

Words SAL
Part 5
Designer - Palkó
Progress as of 04/14/16


Then I worked on Smoosh! I had the penguin and the cupcake done about two years ago but never got around to adding the words that I charted out. My grandson requested this piece based on this commercial that comes on during the Christmas season from Pier One Imports.

Finished 04/16/16

This is one of the UFOs for my yearly goal...
two down, four to go!


Then I worked a little on the maze today from part 2 of this SAL. We have all four parts now so I can just stitch it at my leisure! :)

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening Friends!

I hope that you all had a wonderful week. I had a week full of cross stitching. The only problem is that with every almost section I did on this piece; I had to rip-it out and re-stitch it! I don't think I have ever made so many mistakes in one month as I have this week!

Now I am putting this piece down and hoping my
luck will change with the next piece as I have
banished the dreaded frog from my space (again)!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening Everyone!

Hope everyone had a fantastic week, Spring is in full swing here, not that we notice a big change in seasons here (but I don't mind that)! I hope that you weren't one of the people who is getting snow in April, that seems like a cruel April Fool's joke.

This week brought me some

A couple of weeks ago Ingrid of Mii Stitch stitched this piece and I commented that I loved it!  Being the kind person she is she very generously offered to send me the chart so that I could stitch it up! 

I Love A Carrot
I want to take a minute to tell her once again THANK YOU VERY MUCH! She made my day when she offered it to me and I truly appreciate it. I can't wait to squeeze it into my rotation.

The week I stitched some of the tags for the perpetual calendar I am doing.

First up
Fun Every Day
January Tag
Finished 03/31/16

Next...
