My Sunday Stitchy Update 08/18/19

Hey People! Hope you all have had a great crafting week.

I have been busy putting needle to thread and got a few things stitched up!

I finished this one that I started last week

It is missing a couple of small jingle bells and a bow in that big empty space there, so a trip to Joann's will be coming up soon.

Then I decided to stitch this one for Jacob's friend Leanna. It was a super quick stitch.

It's nothing fancy but I think she will like it.

Also the beads came in the mail so I added them to the snowman.

I think he is super cute! I have not used beads in a long time but I do like the outcome.

Now I NEED to get busy with my two monthly pieces and see about my neglected Halloween banner while I figure out how to finish these up.

My Sunday Stitchy Update 08/11/19

Well Hello There!

Last week I showed you some of the ornaments I was making for Christmas this year. I was working on the snowman and he needed some back stitching along with beads.

As you can see the back stitching is finished but I had no luck finding any of my beads so I had to order some. Hopefully they will be here within the next week and I can get them done soon; though he is pretty cute without them. That spot on his hat is not dirt but rather floss that came through from the other side so I will have to get my tweezers and pull it out!

Then on Thursday I decided to start ANOTHER ornament. This one will be for Tia's boyfriend, Jaye. I don't know if he likes handmade gifts or will even appreciate it so I figured I will just make him something simple so he doesn't feel left out when he is here Christmas morning and I won't be to mad if he doesn't like it.

This should be finished in day or two and then I think I get to start on my LAST ORNAMENT for 2019! This one will be for Jacob's BFF, Leanna. He said not to make her one but I figured I would do it anyway because he has a tendency to change his mind at the last minute and I ain't trying to rush at the last minute this year. If he doesn't want to give it to her then it can hang on our tree.

I am getting ornamented out and will be glad for them to come to an end!

Puzzling 08/10/19

I have a couple of puzzles that I finished recently that I wanted to share with you.

Black and White: Animals
Artist - Shelley Davies
Piece Count - 1,000
Size 27 x 19
New Puzzle
First Piece 07/02/19
Last Piece 07/14/19

Let me tell you, that black and white puzzle was a serious beast but I was thrilled with it. I love Shelly Davies' images and hope to do more!

Seed and Feed
Artist - Kim Jacobs
Piece Count - 1,000
Size 23 x 28
New Puzzle
First Piece 07/17/19
Last Piece 07/31/19

But if I thought the black and white one was a beast this one was about ten times worse! Plus when you do a Sunsout puzzle the pieces are all cut in crazy shapes which usually makes it more fun but not this time! They say all her puzzles are tough so I am not in a hurry to do another!

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time I'm puzzled!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 08/04/19

Evening Everyone!

Last week I was missing in action but here I am; back again!

Since I did not post then, this is what I was working on. It is another Christmas ornament and this one is for my son Matt.

Santa's Favorite
First Stitch 07/22/19
Finished 07/29/19

Then I started on my daughter, Tia's snowman ornament.

It still needs back stitching and then I need to see if I can find my beads; it has been a long time since I have seen them! Hopefully I can find them and I have a color that I can use on this piece. 

Both of these charts has so much filling in to do which makes my mind wander to something else and then it takes forever to do! 

Well I have more ornaments to stitch, it seems to be never ending right now!
