My Sunday Stitchy Update

Good Evening Friends!

Yesterday was my oldest baby's birthday. I simply can not believe that he is 34 years old already! I can remember the day he was born just like it was yesterday.

I managed to get in some stitching time this week. I finished the stitching on the first Dreamcatcher and did the back stitching on it. I decided that I will add the feather's at the end since they are stitched with "long stitches" I thought they might get messed up when I tighten and loosen my Q-Snap around my fabric.

Progress as of 05/22/16

Tomorrow I plan on stitching the next part of the Words SAL and then moving on to the second Dreamcatcher because I would like to get this finished and sent off to my brother.

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

Puzzle Time

Hi Everyone! :)

I thought I would share my puzzle finish with you.
Yesterday I finished this Star Wars puzzle that my son picked up at a yard sale

As you can see; it doesn't always pay to get a "used" puzzle. If the missing piece was along the border or near the bottom we might have been able to fudge it a little but with it being right in the middle there is no way.

Time to pack it up and
move on to the next puzzle!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hello Followers!

Hope you are all doing great. This week the weather here in Arizona has been nice and hot (just the way I like it!) reaching a high of 99°. 

On Tuesday I started working on a new piece that was requested by my brother.

This is what it will look like

and this is what it looks like now.

I stitched this in 2003 (you can see it here) for my father and now I am stitching it for my brother and then I believe that I will be stitching it for my grandson once I am finished with this one.

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...

I have received the next part of the Palkó Words SAL so that is what I will be working on today! Then I "plan" to start a new piece that was requested by my brother.
