My Sunday Stitchy Update 11/27/22

Hello! Hope you are having a good week and/or weekend.  Thanksgiving was good even though Jacob had to go to work in the evening. Luckily for him the theatre was not busy so they had a slow evening.  He made us the calzones for our dinner and they were delicious. 

This week I continued on the Nintendo piece. 

This is where I was when I started the week:.
Progress 11/20/22

and here is the finish on Duck Hunt

Finish 11/24/22

Then I started on Excitebike

But the little frog came for a quick visit.

It took three tries to get the bike in the right place!
The #1 was to high up, #2 was to far to the left

and here is #3 which is in the correct place!

Progress 11/26/22

Hopefully there will be no more trouble with this square so I can get it finished.

Well that is another week over and done with so
Thanks so much for stopping by,
see you next week with another faithful update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 11/21/22

Brrrr It is jacket weather here because it has certainly been chilly in this desert state! I will be so happy when the temperatures go back up!! 

This week I have been trying to find some stitching mojo as I continued with the Nintendo cross stitch. I still managed to stitch every day but I have been feeling kinda blah which I think is because of the weather. I have just been tired and feeling lazy. I am glad that next week will be a short week here in the States as we celebrate Thanksgiving. 

So if you celebrate Thanksgiving do you eat the traditional turkey dinner that day? We stopped eating that for dinner a few years ago because nobody here really enjoys turkey. This year my grandson; Jacob will make us calzones for dinner before he goes to work. Yes, he has to work on the holiday because Thanksgiving seems to be a big "take your family to the movies" day. Luckily he loves his job!

I just love how the dog looks in this square and looking at it I can remember how he would go up and down while giggling on the game.

Well that is that for this week!

Enjoy your holiday if you celebrate it.

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update 11/06/22

Well the weather is definitely showing us that the season changed! It has been dipping down to the 30s and 40s overnight which makes mornings a bit nippy! The weather guy says we will be warming up again this week; thank goodness!

This past Monday I worked on Boo to finish out the month of October.

Boo Banner
Stoney Creek

Progress 10/31/22

There are three ghosts there but they are hard to see because the back stitch isn't done yet.
This is where I am leaving it for a while. I am purpled out and needed a serious change.

So then I spun my Tiny Decision wheel to see what I should stitch next. Unfortunately it stopped on Boo but that was a no go for me! So I spun it again and it landed on Nintendo.

This is where I am starting this time.


Progress 06/30/22

and this is where I am at now.
Progress 11/05/22

The Goomba did not appear on the original chart but
someone in the group kindly shared it with everyone.

This has started some talk on Facebook when I posted it. This and The Legend of Zelda were among my favorites and I played them often. We also played some family games since my kids were little then. I never got into the other game systems but I do play on my phone.

Did you play this game when it came out? How about other video games?

Well that is it for today!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
see you next week with another faithful update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 10/30/22

One more day and this month will be over and done with!
One more day until Halloween.
One more day until #WitchyStitch2022 is over.
One more day until I can stitch something else! 

I am honestly tired of stitching the color purple at the moment and that is my favorite color. 

So this is my starting point on this today.

Progress 10/30/22

Today (Sunday) is a mandatory stitch day for the #StitchWitchy2022 for Embroidery Central's monthly stitch on Facebook. This is my third year participating in this and it is fun while encouraging you to stitch everyday because you have to post your progress each day. I love seeing everyone's daily progress.

So now I am off to see how much I can stitch between today and tomorrow but I think my hope of finishing the first page have been dashed!

Stay safe while you are out there trick or treating
with the little ones or while they are at your door!

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update 10/23/22

Here we are at the start of another week, Happy Sunday Everyone. This week we are going to have some good weather with no rain and temperatures in the 70s. That temperature is not to hot or to cold so it is pretty perfect to me. 

I just checked and there are only 63 days until Christmas! I need to get to finishing the ornaments I stitched. I will have to sort through some fabric for the perfect backers and then decide how to finish them off. I don't use YouTube or FlossTube but I think I may look around for some simple finishing ideas. If you have any site suggestions that you might use for ideas I would love it if you would leave the link in the comments! 

Do any of you stitch ornaments or gifts for Christmas? If so are they stitched up already or do you still need to get busy with them?

This week of course I continued working on Boo Banner. Sometimes it is so hard to see the white floss when I am stitching but it is coming along.

Progress 10/23/22

It seems to be taking a long time to stitch the letters but I am enjoying all the purples.

Well that is it for today so
thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
and I will see ya next week with another faithful update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 10/16/22

I did make some pretty good progress this week and even branched out to another color or two!

Progress 10/15/22

Hopefully I will be able to finish up the top half
and move on to the bottom by the end of the week.

Well that's it from me this week!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 10/09/22

Afternoon Everyone. I am just dropping in for a quick post today. I hope you are having a great weekend. We are still expecting more rain but the heavy monsoonal rains have stopped and the temperatures are in the mid 80s. Perfect weather!

This week I continued to work on Boo but yesterday I decided that with all the purple and no really identifying objects in the current stitching I needed some grid lines to help me out. 

Boo Banner

Progress 10/09/22

So that is here I am at now, adding some gridlines so I can get back to stitching.

And with that, I will let you get back to your stitching
and I will see you again next week for another faithful update!
Thanks for stopping by.

September 2022 Stitching Stats

Hi Friends.  Here we are at three quarters of the year gone and we are coming up on the best quarter of the year in my opinion. We start off with the arrival of ghosts and witches, move on to turkeys then snowmen and Santa and end up with baby New Years! It is also the busiest time of the year with shopping, entertaining and stitching but I am sure most of us wouldn't have it any other way. 

Now on to more important stuff...


Here are my Stats for September and the Year to Date are:

Number of Days Stitched This Month - 30
Number of Days Stitched This Year - 273
            Haven't missed a day this year!

Number of Different Projects Worked on This Month - 1
Number of Different Projects Worked on This Year - 22
           Includes WIPs, UFOs (which may have already been worked on this year) and new starts 

Number of New Projects Started This Month - 0
Number of New Projects Started This Year - 3

Number of Projects Finished This Month - 0
Number of Projects Finished This Year - 6 
            Finishes ~ 4 UFOs / 2 from 2022

In September I only worked on an old UFO; Dinosaurs. I started it way back in 2012 and I have a lot more work to do on it so hopefully you will see it more often!

THANKS for stopping by to check out my stats,
I hope to see you again in October with more good stats!
