New Project 2017
I've been stitching on a new project for a SAL I am running in my community. The SAL is Mira March SAL. I purchased and am stitching Deepest Love designed by Nora Corbett.
From the Web..
My progress so far since March 1st 2017. I am stitching this on 28 count Jobelan Twilight Mist found on 123Stitch
***9-10-2017 - - - I just started back on this after getting caught up with the Great Cheshire Pumpkin SAL being offered by Tempting Tangles
So far everything is still on point with count and I feel I am making progress now thankfully. Doesn't look as if much is done due to having to restitch the parts but there's progress.
*8-30-17 When I last left off I was frogging the inner ribbon due to being off quite a bit on the count.. I have caught back up to where I was originally and added some stitches to the far left side.. Progress until I get back to this in a couple of weeks. "ON POINT" means my stitch count is correct on both sides of the inner ribbon. Until next time...Happy Stitching and May you have smokin' needles xxx
* 8-18-2017 - I haven't updated this one as much as I would have liked. Work has been very busy and I've added the progress of Deepest Love to other post. The Ribbons have been a thorn in my side thus far, I was up past the half way point on this and found a big mistake in the ribbon next to her body. It wasn't close enough to her body.... So I started frogging it last night
I have started restitching the ribbon counting twice and watching my placement. DON'T stitch when you are tired! I think that's why I made such a major mistake on this. Anyhow I have managed to stitch some on this before this update and now back up to here...
Back to stitching... Until next time. Happy Stitching and May you have smokin' needles
6-6-2017 Work has been crazy busy so I haven't been able to update much. I have however been able to stitch a bit on Deepest Love along with 3 other projects. I'm working from the bottom up now. Progress so far... Outer ribbon and seaweed done up to scroll frame, I am stitching the middle ribbon and then the body before moving my scroll frame up...
Until Next Time.... Happy Stitching xxx
5-12-2017 Update on Deepest Love for the Mira March SAL Finished the Fin and working my way back up..
4-15-2017 I loosened up the scroll frame to move it up as I am working on the bottom part....
I hope that this finds everyone doing well. Until next time Happy Stitching and may Mr. Frog stay away.

Unfortunately I have been unable to post as much as I want due to busy season at work. I am trying to stitch when I can and have made some progress on Deepest Love only to find some mistakes and have a major frogging session last night. I WAS up to the halfway point of the pattern when 2 of the outer ribbons were getting too close together. I found the mistakes a little too late and had to frog the entire outer ribbon and seaweed. I've restarted the ribbon and am counting at least 3 times as I stitch... She is just too beautiful to fudge up. I want her right or it will haunt me when I look at it.... So here's some progress. The mistakes and frogging I have done...
Outer ribbon and middle ribbon too close together
Frogging has begun(7-4-2017)
Restarted the outer ribbon. Counting, recounting and counting again.
Until next time .....Happy Stitching xxx
I love to stitch. Not only do I find it relaxing but challenging as well. I enjoy being able to share my work with others. I've met and continue to meet wonderful people in cyber space. I look forward to forming more friendships in the months and years to come. Happy Stitching!
