My Sunday Stitchy Update

There simply are NOT enough hours anywhere for anything!  LOL

I promise myself "This week I will read every blog on my blog list" or "I will read blogs for an hour every night" but...well you probably know the rest of the story - THESE THINGS NEVER HAPPEN! I have such good intentions but instead I am falling farther and farther behind.  So this week I have been diligently signing up for "Follow By Email" on blogs if it is available and what a difference it is making!!  I can keep up with everyone's updates simply by reading my emails - yay!! I love it.  Hopefully I will do better now on keeping up with the stitchy updates for all of you! If you don't have this feature please consider it as it is the best thing ever.

Last week I worked on my Monthly SAL on the Palko Blog.

Months SAL - December
Designer - Palko
Finished 12/06/15

I am going to miss doing these little monthly designs; they were a fun and quick stitches.  She is having a new SAL for 2016 but I am not sure if I am going to participate or not because I have a LONG LIST of charts that I want to get to.
I suppose it will depend on the size of the monthly charts and if I have fabric handy, usually her chart sections just require a day or two of stitching.

This week I stitched a day on Dorothy and her friends

Wizard of Oz
Cross Stitch Gold Mag / July 2012
Designer - Lesley Teare
Progress as of 12/09/15

then I started this cute ornament over the weekend

Heart Snowman
Kit - Needlemagic
Finished 12/13/15

I need to really get going on the Wizard of Oz this week so that will be my goal!  Hope I have some progress to show you next Sunday!!

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

I have seen Palko's monthlies on various blogs, all stitched with different thread colors. Very nice.
Great progress on the Wizard. And you finished such a sweet snowman.

I really like those Palko designs too. I'll miss seeing yours. Wizard of Oz is coming along nicely too.

Terrific finishes and nice progress on Oz. I'm sure Scarecrow would appreciate a little love and attention!

Great stitching :). I've been keeping up with blogs but not been doing much stitching. Same reasons but blogs I can read on the go

I feel the same as you about blog reading - if you get just a little bit behind it's so difficult to catch up. But here I am! I love reading your posts and seeing your progress. The Palko designs have been lovely to watch each month. :)
