It's a Puzzling Day 04/19/18

The Dogshow
Piece Count - 1,500
Size 35 x 23
Used Puzzle
First Piece 04/06/18
Last Piece 04/19/18

These are fun puzzles to put together! The artist hides different things in the puzzle when he draws his pictures. There is a caricature of himself, a sharks fin, a saw, Saint Nicholas, dentures, miscellaneous hands and eyes all over the place. Finding them is almost as much fun as putting the puzzle together. 

Thanks for stopping by
and see ya soon!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 04/15/18

Happy Sunday Everyone! 

I hope you had an awesome week; I did!! 

Rachel, The Ten Hour Stitcher had a blogoversary giveaway not to long ago and I was the lucky winner! I asked for the GC to be for my favorite online store, Stoney Creek where you can always get a great bargain! Anyways... this week I received my order and here are my goodies.  

They had the fabric on clearance for half price and one of them will be just the right size for the HaED I want to start this year! YAY I also got this cute bunny chart (I collect bunnies) Happy Easter by From the Heart and the Lizzie Kate Snowy String. Can't wait to stitch them both!

Well after that massive puzzle it should come as no surprise that I decided to do a small quick one next! 

This was a fun one.

I am so EXCITED! I was moving furniture around near my puzzling space and I FOUND the missing piece for the North American Skyline puzzle. I am building another puzzle on top of it again so I couldn't get an updated picture but hopefully I will soon.

My Sunday Stitchy Update 04/08/18

Hello Friends! Hope you all had a great week 😊

This week I worked on my Halloween banner. I finally used the Kreinik thread and at first I was NOT impressed with it at all! Then I discovered it is GLOW IN THE DARK thread! How cool is that?  LOL I guess I am easier to impress than I thought!

Scary Night Halloween
this is the picture
with the light on

and here it is with
the light off
First Stitch 02/26/18
Progress as of 04/08/18

I didn't have it under the light very long, just enough to get it to glow a little.

Next up... CHRISTMAS! 

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