June Stitch From Stash

WOW - the year is halfway over. I can't believe it! Time seems to go by so fast.

It is time for the June Stitch from Stash report!

This month I did not get a lot of stitching in but I did get in some and as we all know, that is what counts!

Here is my June report:
This report finishes up this challenge
and we will start a new challenge in July.

Now if I can just get someone to convert
my ending total to cash I would be very happy!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening everyone... welcome! Hope everyone is doing alright where ever you are. The states had some pretty bad storms this past week. Tropical Storm Bill hit the Texas area and everyone else had tons of rain where ever they were. We had MORE than our fair share of rain but it wasn't that bad.

This week I continued stitching on my Fractal and I have gotten a bit farther. There is a lot of confetti stitching which we all know is a pain while you are doing it but oh how fabulous it makes the finished piece looks!

Here is my progress...


Fractal Bookmark 405
Progress as of 06/21/15

It is really coming along nicely but I think I need to put it down for a week and work on one of my WIPs. Oh which one should I pick...decisions, decisions! 

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening Friends!

We are still getting lots of rain here in Chicago. I think it is our spring showers catching up to us since we had such a long winter!

Just a quick post today - I got in a bit of stitching on my Fractal Bookmark this week and I am at just about 1,300 stitches. Lots of confetti but I love how it is coming along!!

My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening friends...I do hope you had a great week!  We saw a couple of warm days here FINALLY and now we are getting saturated with rain. Hopefully our summer weather will follow the rainy days and trust me I am more than ready for them to be here!

School finished this week for the year and Jacob has made this another year of being on the "A" Honor Roll for all four quarters. I am very proud of him; he has been on the A Honor Roll every quarter since he has been in school!

Now on to the stuff you came here for...
