My Sunday Stitchy Update 01/22/17

Evening Friends!

This week I received a beautiful gift in the mail from one of my stitchy friends, Karen Vaillette.  She does not have a blog but if your belong to one of Brooke's Books Yahoo or Facebook groups I think you know who she is! She made me a beautiful pinkeep in my favorite color!


I was in shock when I opened it as it was very unexpected but I truly love it and will treasure it for many years to come!  THANK YOU KAREN!

Then I decided to keep out Shades of Blue and continue to work on it.

Progress as of 01/22/17

I am working on page 10 and a little of page 11.  There are only 12 pages, so there is hope that this one will be done SOON!  

Earlier this week I was reading a newsletter from Loretta at Stitching the Night Away and she had listed 12 SALs that are happening this year.  Wouldn't you know it, one caught my eye! It is called Christmas Ornie SAL 2017. The idea is to stitch up an ornament a month and you will have 12 new ornaments for your tree!  

They have two lists for monthly themes and you can choose either. I picked the 12 Days of Christmas theme and decided to do the one by Margaret Sherry.  I have had it in my stash for quite a while and thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to stitch it up.


I started Day 1 today and here is my progress on it.

Hopefully I will finish this page soon so I can pull something else out of the WIP box to work on for a bit.

This weekend Tia (my daughter) and I saw the movie Hidden Figures. It was a very good movies and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you are looking for a great movie to see I recommend it!

Golf

Nope, I am not golfing but that is my newest puzzle finish!

I got a bazillion puzzles for Christmas and this was the first one up. Once I go to bed at night I have a hard time going to / or staying asleep so I have started "puzzling" at night once I go to my space.

Now to put it back in the box and in the pile to go one of our local stores where you can trade old books, puzzles, games, music, etc... for different ones.

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time!

Happy New Years!

Happy New Years everyone!

I hope that everyone has been having a wonderful and safe new years and that 2017 be your best year yet!

I did not make any stitchy plans, goals or lists for 2017; instead I decided that I will just stitch what I want, when I can and be satisfied with my progress.

The last of my 2016 stitching has been on Shades of Blue. I didn't squeeze in a lot of stitching but I managed a little.

Once again, Happy New Years and I look
forward to following you into the new year.
