My Sunday Stitchy Update 06/17/18

Well my first HaED is underway and here is the beginning...

The Enchanted Christmas Snowman 
Artist - Dona Gelsinger
Progress as of 06/17/18

I really can't believe how many color changes there were in just this little section! There are 44 colors used here which is half the colors in the entire chart! Weirdly for this being a snowman there are no white colors used anywhere!! LOL Stitching this chart is going to be a LONG TERM project! Oh well, another one to keep on the list 😊

Anyways... on my travels around the internet I found this picture (though I can't remember where) and I thought it is pretty appropriate for all of us crafters and so I wanted to share it!

Next week will be June's WIPocalypse so if you would like to join in, click this icon to find out more information. 

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

It's a Puzzling Day 06/16/18

This week I assembled the perfect puzzle for me...BUNNIES!

I love and collect fun whimsical bunnies and Easter is a dangerous season for me to go into a store. It is even worse right after the holiday when they go on CLEARANCE SALE!  I have more rabbits (and Eeyores) than any one person needs but hey, I love 'em! Which brings me to this puzzle finish.

One Hundred Rabbits and a Carrot
Artist - Kevin Whitlark
Piece Count - 750
Size 18 x 24
Used Puzzle
First Piece 06/07/18
Last Piece 06/15/18

I am going to hang this one up near my shelf of rabbits!

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

I am hoping it gets straightened out soon!!

My Sunday Stitchy Update 06/10/18

Hello Friend! I hope you have been having a wonderful week! The weather is warming up here in Tucson and we are in the low 100's now and I am sure we will be getting a little warmer as the summer goes on.

Last post I was telling you how I started working on that darn half (tent) stitch for the snow on the Christmas Penguin piece and since I was in a groove with it I just kept on until I finished it!

Christmas Penguin
Designer - Gill Cooper
First Stitch 02/12/18
Finished 06/06/18

I must admit the snow looks good and really stands out but I'll tell ya I am glad to be finished with it!

And since I seem to be on a Christmas roll lately I have a new start that is also Christmas related! In addition to that it is my first HaED piece! It was a gift from a friend and as soon I received it I knew it had to stitch it up and added it to my "short list" of things to work on.

This is what it will look like once I finish it.

Here is the fabric all gridded up and ready to start the stitching.
The gridding alone took me three days since it is the boring part of stitching! 

and here it is with the first Xs and only LOTS more to go!
First Stitch 06/09/18

I am going to continue stitching this for the next week
and hope I can make some great progress on it.
