My Sunday Stitchy Update 09/1519

Hi there everyone!

I want to start off by saying I am wayyyyy behind on reading blogs but I promise to get back in the swing of things soon. One of our computers has had a MAJOR meltdown that I have been trying to deal with some what unsuccessfully and accompanied by a lot of slamming things around, muttering under my breath and tears of frustration. I have decided to look into the Geek Squad (whom I know nothing about past their commercials) and see if they can at least download the information from the hard drive. It is SUPER frustrating!

Anyways on to happier subjects...

I managed to squeeze in some stitching through all this and have a couple of mini finishes!

First up I managed to kick the frog to the big curb in the sky and finish a section of the Halloween banner.

My Sunday Stitchy Update 09/01/19

Hi everyone. It seems as though August has come to an end and I guess that means summer is just about over. I am sad to see it go because it is my favorite time of the year and brings the heat! I know most of you don't like the heat but for me I will take it over cold temperatures any day!!

Well this week it was Halloween in my stitching corner; well Halloween and a few frogs. I don't understand why I am having so much trouble with this piece no matter which section I am working on but thankfully I catch it each time before I get to far from it so I am able to rip out smaller sections at a time! HaHaHa

Horrific Halloween
Designer - Stoney Creek
Progress as of 09/01/19

I think that I will be keeping this piece out so that I can at least finish this section and if the frog repellent works maybe get started on the next section!

Well that is it for this week. If you are in the U.S. I hope you are enjoying the long holiday weekend which hopefully means another day for stitching!

As always, thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

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

Better Not Pout
Just Cross Stitch Magazine
Christmas Ornaments 2018 Issue
First Stitch 08/08/19
Finished 08/13/19

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.
