My Sunday Stitchy Update 04/11/21

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I hope that you had a great week! I got my second Pfizer shot this week and am on the 14 day countdown until I am "safe" again. Though I will still wear my mask in public and social distance by as many feet as I can because this virus just doesn't want to go away! Not only is is not leaving it is changing so often that I don't know if a vaccine can really do an effective job! Anyways; enough about that! 

Last week I was stitching on the same piece that I am posting about today; Keep Calm Tea Time but when I was looking at it on Monday I decided to change it up. So I ripped out the tea pot and moved it over and then designed a coffee pot to go next to it. It was not easy going with the ripping out of that teapot and then the black floss against the light fabric. What was I thinking!?!?!?

Now I am at that "filling" in part and that takes about a million stitches and hours! Hope (again) it will be finished next week! 

Enjoy your week and I'll see ya
next week with another faithful update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 04/04/21

Hello, hello, hello! 

I hope that everyone had a beautiful Easter and you spent the day doing just what you wanted to do!  Here we just relaxed and binged a bunch of crazy shows on Netflix and did not do much of anything else - just a lazy butt day!

This week in keeping with the coffee and tea theme I had a new start but I couldn't manage to make it a finish but I hope it will be done this week!

I still need to fill in the cups and the tea pot on this piece.

And that is it for today ~ short and sweet!

Thanks for stopping by!
Please stay safe and have a great week!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 03/28/21

Whew... it was close but I managed to get it in. Seems I kept distracting myself though I knew I wanted it finished by today so I really worked on it over the weekend! 

So here is my fourth start for Mischievous March!!

Funny Dictionary Definitions, Coffee
First Stitch 03/22/21
Finished 03/28/21

and I managed to squeeze it in as a finish!

Now I have one more piece to do for Tia but I don't think it will be finished in a week like the others were which is why it went last!

I hope you enjoyed my Mischievous March pieces and I want to say thanks to both Rachel and Tiff for thinking it up to help motivate us into starting some new pieces!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Puzzling March 2021

 Hi there! 

I completed two puzzles during  the month of March.

First up is a crossword jigsaw puzzle. I have done these before and always enjoy the extra challenge of two puzzles in one. The puzzle is NOT on the boxtop but they send a sheet of paper with the puzzle layout and the clues but no answers filled in. So you have to solve the crossword before you can solve the jigsaw. The jigsaw pieces do answers the letters filled in. 

Crossword Jigsaw 2018
Double Challenge Puzzle
Piece Count - 550 / Size 24 x 18
First Piece 02/25/21
Last Piece 02/28/21

Next up is an Aimee Stewart puzzle. Her puzzle are often filled in with mysterious colorful object. I am always finding new objects in her puzzles and she also hides things. Sometimes she provides a list of hidden objects for you to find in the image; some of which I never find!

Beachcomber's Bounty
Artist - Aimee Stewart

Piece Count - 1,000 / Size 27 x 20
First Piece 03/03/21
Last Piece 03/20/21

Thanks for stopping by,
and seeing my pieces put together!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 03/21/21

Hi everyone!  This week we have been having that crazy weather were it is warm one day and the cold on the next day.  Are you having the same kind of weather? I am anxiously awaiting when it is warm (aka hot) everyday!

Well for this week of  Mischievous March I started another Tea piece for my daughter, Tia.

And this piece is also a finish!!

The chart originally said biscuits but here in the States we really say cookies instead so I changed the wording. Next week we will learn the definition for coffee!

February 2021 Stitching Stats!

My goal this year is to finish as many pieces as I can while stitching most of the days of 2021. I thought posting some monthly statistics might help keep me accountable to myself; so I decided to start posting them at the end of every month. 

So here is what I accomplished during the month of February!

I worked on two pieces during the month and the first one was a UFO from The Box.  

I stitched on this piece every day from 01/25/21 to 02/14/21 and finished it!
It took nine years for me to finish it but it was worth every stitch and I love it!

Then I moved to a more current WIP

Where I started on 02/15/21


And I ended here with the end of February 02/28/21.

My Stats for the month of February are...
Number of Days Stitched This Month = 28
Number of Days Stitched This Year = 57 
Number of Projects Worked on This Month = 2
Number of (different) Projects Worked on This Year = 5
Number of New Projects Started This Month = 0
Number of New Projects Started This Year  = 1
Number of Projects Finished This Month = 1
Number of Projects Finished This Year = 4

While I am here I may as well do January's Stats too since I haven't done them before! 😉

I started off the New Year by stitching and finishing A Year of Celebrations, December.


This was the last section of a year long piece

and I finished it on 01/01/21 - Happy New Year!!

Then on the second I picked up Holidays Are Mother's Day!, Easter Mom


This was my January starting point

I stitched on this piece from 01/02 to 01/10 with the exception of 01/04
and then again 01/19 to 01/24/21 at which time it was a finish!!

I even had a new start in January on 01/11/21!
The Witch Is In
I worked on her daily from the 11th until the 17th and she was also a finish!

My Stats for the month of January were...
Number of Days Stitched This Month = 29
Number of Days Stitched This Year = 29 
Number of Projects Worked on This Month = 4
Number of Projects Worked on This Year = 4  
Number of New Projects Started This Month = 1
Number of New Projects Started This Year  = 1 
Number of Projects Finished This Month = 3
Number of Projects Finished This Year = 3

My Sunday Stitchy Update 02/28/21

Just a quick post this week. 😀

This week I continued to work on the blackwork piece I had out already. It is a pretty relaxing stitch as there are no confetti stitches or changes of color; if you can you just catch on to the design layout in each section and stitch away. The hardest part is really the distractions all around me! LOL

Now I have to gather my stitching stuff for Mischievous March because tomorrow is March already! That means lots of new starts - yay! Luckily they are small pieces so I hope I can finish them or at least get close to a finish on each one. Do you plan to be mischievous with us??

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