WIPS and Rotation

Hello my lovely stitching friends! I hope this finds ya'll doing well. I've been trying to do a rotation and was working on a main project for the Mira March SAL I am running. You can find all the lovely ladies post over on this blog to see what everyone is up to.

     Back to my rotation. I suppose I was getting bored trying to work on 4 projects each week rotating days. I've decided to clean up, reorganize and get my projects in order and work on each 1 a week at a time. I'll be trying this for a little while to see how it works. I did have them in order on a bookshelf each with it's threads and patterns but I got tired of the way it looked so I decided to clean out my 4 drawer rolling storage cart and use it. I've got each drawer labeled Week 1, Week 2 etc.
1st week is a small ornament that I have stitched 8 of the 9 so far of Daffy Cat's Reindeer
I have one left to stitch then I'll replace it with the 12 Days of Christmas by Micheala Learner - Found here
and add another Mirabilia by Nora Corbet for the community's up coming L&L/General Fall SAL due to start August 1st.
  Here's a few pictures of what I am working on and the way I have them in the drawers

Also working on Tempting Tangles The Great Cheshire Pumpkin SAL pictured above part 1 is finished and started on part 2  ^ find the SAL details on the link above

 That's all for now, Back to stitching and I hope to have ya'll another update soon....
                           Happy Stitching and may you have smokin' needles....

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

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.

* 7-5-2017 *
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
