My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening Folks!

Well here it is September and time for Justine's Solo September!  I had plans of working on this piece

Dinosaurs!
Artist - Stephen Michael Gardner
Progress as of 08/02/16

but a funny thing happened on the way to my stitching chair.  I gathered everything up and got comfy and I couldn't find my chart! I know it has to be around here somewhere. There are still two or three boxes in my room that I need to empty and organize but I have been putting it off to do other stuff around here.  Well long story short...I didn't feel like emptying the boxes so yesterday I decided to pick something else to stitch for September. 

Which brings me to this choice!

I hope I can get lots stitched on this one during the month! I am halfway finished now so maybe I can get a couple more pages in on it this month.

Our New Home

A couple of people have asked to see our new home so I will show you some outdoor photos!

This is the front of our home

we have solar here!  YAY
Hope it helps reduce the bills.

and here is the yard.

There are lemon and orange trees in the backyard.

My daughter painted all the rooms before we moved in
and mine is a light...PURPLE! My favorite color!  

I am still "organizing" my space and
next I need to sew some curtains. 

I think we are in for many years of enjoyment here!

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening everyone!

I did a little stitching this week and then my stitchy bug disappeared again. I figure it is in one of these unpacked boxes.  There are not to many left so I should find it soon! I really need it because I want to participate in Justine's Solo September. That is where we will stitch one piece (of your choice) for the month of September. I plan on digging Dinosaur's out and working on that!

Here is my finish!
Words SAL Part 8
Designer - Palkó

and here it is
in its entirety!
 
First Stitch 01/18/14
Last Stitch 08/22/16

I love how the colors look together and how it turned out.

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