Hello all, I hope this finds everyone doing well. I do apologize for not posting as often but due to my full time job, we are in busy season , so that means long days and a little time to stitch, Life such as it is gets in the way sometimes, but I am grateful that I have a full time job and be able to do the things that need to be done around my home. The weather has been really hot and humid as well which drains the energy faster.
A little about what I've been up to as far as stitching, As many of you know I manage a Google Community(private) and we have quite a few ladies there that are stitching in SALs I've created from ideas from all the wonderful people.
First up is out General Year Long SAL, I've been working on various projects and have completed 1 project which was Daffy Cat's Reindeer. There were 9 and I finished them up a couple of months ago...
I also finished Stardust Fairy by Joan Elliott this year(2017)
Next up another finish is Tempting Tangles- Crimson Cardinal
I began working on a Mirabilia in March for our Mira March SAL. Had a few problems with it on the left side and had to frog the whole left side and restart it. I am finally back up to a little past the half way point with Deepest Love by Nora Corbett
Next up is our new SAL we started on August 1st. L&L/General Fall SAL, you can work on anything Fall related or any L&L you have. I chose to work on Mari from Nora Corbett's Bewitching Pixies, pretty much the middle part of her dress is done....
Now there's another SAL I have joined by Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles
This SAL is called Great Cheshire Pumpkin SAL. Parts 1-4 of 8 have been released. I've finished up part 2 and working on part 3 this week. progress
And last but not least of my rotation is 12 Days of Christmas by Micheala Learner . I've stitched so far this year 5 Days and will start the 6th Day next week but here is the 5th day
So now my rotation consist of just 4 projects, I feel better working on 1 project a week. I feel I am making better progress this way and I hope to continue to do so.
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!
