My Sunday Stitchy Update 05/31/20

Evening People! 

I just had my first experience with the new interface on Blogger and for me it is a big NO GO!

I have been working on it for an hour trying to upload an image and I just can't seem to upload a single picture. UUuugghhh!! Luckily somehow I managed to find my way back to the old interface. Why oh why are they always changing things? If it ain't broke... don't fix it!! I hope that I don't have to use it and continue with the old one. 

Anyways on to important stuff!

This week I worked on my Halloween piece.

My Sunday Stitchy Update 05/24/20

The weather is getting warmer and it is time for sitting outside (when it is NOT 105) so I hope you all had a great week enjoying the fresh air and getting in plenty of stitching! Sometimes the call of the outside is stronger than the call to stitch.

This week I picked up my Rose of Sharon WIP and I swear every piece I pick up I say "This one is my favorite!" as I stitch on it. I don't know HOW I can have so many favorites, but I do! LOL

Rose of Sharon
Design Connection
Progress as of 05/24/20

I started on the last row of quilt squares (finally) but I know this piece won't be finished anytime soon! All that border around the squares takes T I M E and lots of it!

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update 05/17/20



Dog Lessons for People
Designer - Lizzie*Kate
This was my progress last week on the 10th

and here it is today!
Progress as of 05/17/20

I made pretty good progress on it. It needs two more lines and one word and it will be finished. I don't want to jinx it but I think the next time it is out I can finish it up. 

Since we are talking dogs I thought that you guys
might want to see our collection of dogs.
They are ALL rescues. Bowser and Scruffy are the "old guys" at eight years old. Then we felt we needed another for some reason or another, so we looked online and saw Appa. When we went to see him we fell in love with him but he was so attached to Damian that they didn't want to be separated from each other so they came as a set. We jokingly call them The Twins and they are now four years old. Then my daughter  wanted a puppy for Christmas and she went to "look" around at the shelter and came home with Samson. They are a handful but how could we pass up those loveable faces?

Thanks so much for stopping by,
see ya next week with another faithful update!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 05/03/20

Hi there everyone,

I hope that you were able to have a good week. The weather here is fantastic and just how I like it - in the high 80s / low 90s. I LOVE the heat and would be quite fine without the AC running all the time. Since it is always on I have to keep on my sweater and keep a blamket nearby for my legs.

This week I kept out my halloween banner and started the fifth section. It is moving along nicely as I have about half of this section all stitched up.

Horrific Halloween
Spider Webs and Bat Wings
Section Five of Six
Designer - Stoney Creek
Progress as of 05/03/20

Almost hate to put it away but now I need to do the next section of the Celebrations SAL.

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
stay home, stay healthy and stay safe and I'll
see ya next week with another faithful update!

Thanks for stopping by,
hope to see you with some
more puzzles soon!
