My Sunday Stitchy Update 12/01/19

Hip hip hooray! I have a finish!

I put in the last stitch on Jingles this afternoon!!

Designer - Lizzie*Kate

First Stitch 01/21/19
Finished 12/01/19

It took me all year to do it but I am happy with it. I still have to attach the buttons but I want to iron it first.  Also I know I bought a hanger for it but I will be darned if I know where I put it off hand. I will have to look for it tomorrow (hopefully) so that I can get proper measurements for this.

I am so excited to have this stitched up!!

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update 11/24/19

Well first I would like to thank all those who encouraged me to keep stitching Full Bloom (though it didn't take much to put me on that path) because it is now a FINISH!

I started this piece just short of 8 years ago for the Cross Stitch Crazy 2012 Challenge. It had sat in the UFO pile for a very long time and like many of us stitchers we have times when we can barely get motivated to put the floss into the eye of the needle but I am so happy now that I finally finished the stitching!

Designer - Cross-Stitch-Art
First Stitch 01/03/12
Finished 11/19/19

I have finished all but three of the pieces started for that challenge. The first one is Rose of Sharon which is close to a finish, the second is Flowers of the Month which I am not sure if I want to finish it or not and the last has been discarded for change or lack of interest.

So now I picked up Jingles and did not quite finish it up.

Progress as of 11/24/19

So now I need to finish up this section and add the bottom border and I will be finished with the stitching! 

I saw a new freebie post on Facebook from Jardin Prive if you are interested.

It is the redwork in this picture.

My Sunday Stitchy Update 11/17/19

Hello Friends!

I do hope that you have been having some quality crafting time.

If you are in the U.S. are you getting ready for Thanksgiving? Do you cook for your family or go to someone else's home?  My daughter is the Holiday Cook in this house and this year she has decided on Cornish Hens with a couple of sides.

I have been working on one piece for the past two weeks and I am 'thisclose' to having it finished!

This is how it looked last time I had it out in January.

Last week when I worked on it this is how
it looked though I didn't post then.

and here is how it looks tonight.
Progress as of 11-17-19

I just need to finish that bottom left hand section! 

Now comes the hard part
keep it out or put it away to work on Jingles???
decisions, decisions, decisions...
