My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hello Friends!

Hope you have all had a great week filled with stitching and other fun filled things :)

These past few weeks I have been stitching on the piece for my brother and I REALLY want to get it finished SOON.  I am just about finished with the stitching on the last Dreamcatcher and then I will need to do the back stitch and then...I can add the feathers!

Progress as of 06/19/16

I want to have it finished by the end of the month so hopefully I will find some daily motivation to work on it!

Which brings me to July 1st!  I am joining Justine with her Just One July SAL!  Last time she had a monthly SAL like this everyone made so much progress and I was mad at myself for not joining in since I NEED lots of motivation to work on Dinosaurs and make some serious progress on it!

This is my latest progress picture

Progress as of  03/03/16
6 pages completed and 14 to go!

I know I won't finish all 14 (that would be a miracle!) but I would like to finish at least one and if it is at all possible; maybe two!

If you have a piece that you would like to work on exclusively (or mainly) in July then head on over to Justine's and leave her a reply on her blog! I am sure that she would love it if lots of people signed up because you know what they say, the more the merrier!

Almost forgot to mention the weather!  Today Tucson reached 115°!! They were predicting 120° so they weren't to far off.  The humidity is only 4% so when they say it is a "dry heat" they really mean it.
I believe they said it was the hottest day in 22 years!
My daughter said that we got to to AZ just in time!  LOL

see ya next week with another faithful update!

The Bake Off!

Matt (my son) and I have been working on a new puzzle with a little help from Jacob.

It is a type of puzzle that I have never seen before and I was a little worried when we first opened the box that we wouldn't be able to finish it!

The website for these puzzles says:
"Wasgij is the addictively unique jigsaw puzzle brand where you need to use your imagination to piece together the Wasgij 'solution'."

But we did it and it was fun and interesting to see what it would look like because the picture that you see on the box is not the picture that you will puzzle!!

The description for this puzzle says:
At the County Fair, the baking competition is hotting up! The judges have high expectations, but what sweet surprises will be offered by the ‘lucky’ contestants who have prepared their signature, family-tested dishes? Try to imagine you are the judge with the stripey top and bow’s and piece together what she can see.

and this is the solution!
First Piece - 05/23/16
Last Piece - 06/14/16

I am looking forward to completing more of these puzzles,
two challenges in one puzzle ;)

Thanks for taking a peek,
See ya next time!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Hi friends!

This week we received the seventh part of the Words SAL so I stitched that up and got my picture emailed off at the beginning of the week.

Then I continued stitching away on the piece for my brother in Virginia, almost finished with the second Dreamcatcher.

Progress as of 05/29/16

I hope to finish that Dreamcatcher and get started on the next one this week but now Jacob is out of school for the summer and things have been pretty hectic around here with some stuff that is going on.  Nothing serious and I hope everything will be sorted out soon.

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.
