Long overdue update

Here are R, S, T, U and V from the Alphabet Sampler in reverse order cause I somehow get them out of order when I load them. The first two are also together as it would not let me load more than 5 pictures so in order to get everything in. SIGH

This here is an SAL I started on another group, The Stitch Specialists and was designed by Abi Gurben?? It is called The Great Escape and is going to be an owl. This is the first 4 parts. Enjoy and any comments are greatly appreciated.

I Have worked on Fred this Weekend along with Lavender Moon and Cockers

I have an update on Fred and also a little update on my HAED Lavender Moon.
So far I have put in 539 stitches in Lavender Moon!  This is a BAP!  Also my first time with linen so it is a slow process : )

I am just about done with the second page which makes me half done.  Also stitched on Cocker Spanials so here is an update

Happy Stitching everyone : )

Finished the Q and Ink Circles

Here is an update on where I am with Ink circles, it is progressing much faster than expected and am already to page 4 and am almost done with that as well.
Next up is Q for Quilt, done with DMC: 322, 349, 743, white and Needles Necessities 628. Like the bright colors of the quilt, but am not very happy with the color chosen for the Q itself, was too far along when I decided this so just left it. It is most likely going to be donated to my church's auction next spring so what I think will not matter at that point.

It's been a while

Where to start, N & O not in order. Still do not like that color purple used but need to stay consistent so there it is. Also a picture of where I am to date.

Am over half way done now, so the end is in sight. Am losing interest in this as I have become obsessed with the Ink Circles piece and as you can see have made much progress on that.

Here is Ink Circles to date, two and 1/2 pages done, with 3 to go. Going much faster than first expected as I work on it every chance I get. Am really enjoying this one and don't see that going away any time soon.

Enjoy and let me know what you think.

J for Jelly is done, for some reason this was not as fun as the others don't know why it has purple in it. Anyway it is done.

Here is a picture of what I have so far, almost halfway done. K for Kite is next.

I'm Making Progess

I have another update on my stitching for the last 2 rotations. The first is 2 weeks work on Chocolate,Chocolate & More Chocolate. You can see one of the cupcakes taking shape now. I love working on this (well, I love working on all of them).
Next is my update on Train of Dreams. Got in 2 good weeks on this one. Still loving it.

And last but not least(& I know I'm crazy) but today I am starting another one. This will be 6 in the rotation. I am starting Sundae Delight.
This is another SAL with Caite. We are also being joined in this one by Elena & Annie.

I hope all of the Mom's who read my ramblings have a wonderful Mother's Day & get plenty of stitching done.

H and I are done

H and I are done for the Alphabet sampler. I was a fast stitch as it is small than the others, the H took a bit longer and I lopsided the windows a bit, but was too lazy to rip it out and fix it.

H was done with DMC; 115, 121, 437, 700, 739, 3781 & white

I was done with DMC; 321, 349, 4090 & white

Happy Stitching Everyone!

G for Goose

G for goose is done, this took me a week and a 1/2, getting them done pretty quickly.

DMC : White, 742, 3781, 3740 & 4090

Next up is H for House and then I for Ice Cream.

Worked On Cocker Spanials Watching Birds This Week!

I managed to put in quite a few stitches in this pattern.  I started this one Jan. 2006!  Here is two photos, 1 when I stopped and one as of now.

Happy Stitching Everyone : )

My progess for the last 2 weeks

I have put in 2 weeks on The Astronomer & I think I have made some good progress. I did 926 stitches. It doesn't sound like alot but it was all confetti stitching. I confess I had one day out of the 2 weeks that I did not get 1 stitch in. Just too tired.

Now I have a confession to make. Chocolate, Chocolate & More Chocolate was supposed to have a turn next but I could not resist starting another one. I have now added Afternoon Tea to my rotation.

What can I say. I'm addicted to these little dragons.
On a non stitching note the weather here has been better. No snow & not much rain for the last 2 weeks.Maybe spring has finally come to New England.
Okay now time to go stitch somemore.
Have a great day

Here a stitch, there a stitch...

Due to having company lately, my stitching time has been really limited, but I have been trying to put in a stitch "here and there".  This is my start on Battle Hymn of the Republic by Little House Needleworks.  Our guest bath has a red, white and blue theme, so I look forward to (eventually) hanging this piece in there.

This may not be a "fast" finish but I'm having fun with the process and that's what counts - right?

On a roll

Got the F done in a little over a week. Really good for me, but once I get started I don't want to stop.

F is for Flower

Carrie's Creations: Fairy Dust
Threadworx: 11611
DMC : 435, 437, 712, 720, 721 & 739

Changed the flower a little, it was charted in peachy colors, didn't have the floss called for and didn't want to go buy any so changed it to more rusty colors that I had. Like the darker flower to offset the pretty purple in the F itself.
Very pleased with this.

I am starting on my O'Canada designed by Sandy Orton on 28ct. light tan Cashell linen using DMC threads.


"Festive Cheerkat" and "Let's Bee Friends"

I finished these 2 stitching projects. Left photo is "Festive Cheerkat" on 28ct Laguana and right photo is "Let's Bee Friends" on 14ct aida. I think the meerkat will be framed and the hedgehog might be in a tuck pillow.

Two finishes

Playing around a little with page format, let me know if you like it or not as I am not that creative this way at all. Anyway finished E is for Elephant on Sunday evening. Don't really like the color of yellow, but it did go really well with the blue in the elephant.

DMC 322, 519, 3781, 4075 & 4240

Also got an ornament done earlier in the day. Only have maybe 6 more to do in this series, most of them are larger so they will take longer to get done.

Treasure Quest

I'm trying to be better about posting updates on my HAED's. I am rotating 4 of them at the moment(that # could change if my fabric ever comes in) but I haven't been good about posting updates. Since I am no good at keeping track of how many hours I put in at any one time I keep track of how many stitches I do each day. So far Treasure Quest has had 2 turns in the rotation of 2 weeks each time. The first 2 weeks I put in 2214 stitches & the second two weeks I put in 1639. The 2nd rotation had alot more confetti stitching. Now I have put this away and am working on the Astronomer(the HAED that started my addiction) for the next 2 weeks.
