A Finish!

I finished She Believed by Lizzie Kate this weekend.  I changed the yellow to a less muted tone as well as the pink.  I would probably like this better if I changed out the color of the words.  This was quick and easy.

I also decided to see what WIPs I had.  I have 4 that I would like to work on this year.

Winter Woods by Mill Hill Buttons and Beads.  I am about halfway done with the stitching part.

The Neighborhood by Funk & Weber.  I probably started this years ago when my boys were smaller and into the solar system.  I have completed Mars and Venus and started on the Sun and Earth.

My Heart Beats True by Waxing Moon Designs.  Don’t know why the color recommended is more green than blue.  I think I may switch that out before I go further.

This last one might be older than my kids. 😉  Caught Napping by Bucilla  I have so much completed yet, I haven’t been motivated to get this one finished.  Maybe this is the year!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy New Year!

It has been a long while since I posted. I have been super busy and I lost some of my stitching mojo.  I finished these in December but forgot to post.

I bought these cute owl pendents off Amazon.  I was going to make them into neckalaces for the co-workers but never got around to it.  Maybe next year!

I also finished this cute design from https://www.weelittlestitches.com/

My current project is She believed she could from Lizzie Kate.  I changed a couple of the colors because I am not really into muted shades.  We’ll see how it turns out.

If I am not back her soon, have a wonderful January!

Vacation is over!

My job gives me a 5 week vacation in the summer and I spent some of that time stitching.  I got a lot completed.  🙂

Peace by Imaginating -completed and my starting point at the beginning of July.

My LNS was having a 40% off sale for charts 2015 and older, so of course, I had to make some purchases.

I also got “I love you more than all the stars” by Bent Creek.  I stitched on bookmark fabric.  One of the twins claimed this right away for his room.

I also finished Winter Quilt by Imaginating.  I hadn’t worked on this one since 2013!

I also finished Pink Flamingos by Tiny Modernist.

I am working on the Chocolate pattern from Kit and Bixby now but forgot to take a picture.  Back to work, school and sports for the kids means my stitching time is practically gone.  We’ll see how far I get.  See ya next time,

Gone Missing….Again

 

My family’s crazy spring schedule has really cut into my stitching time.  I did manage to finish Promise Me by Lizzie Kate for my MIL’s birthday.

The only other project that I worked on was Peace by Imaginating.  Here is my progress since my last update in March.

Peace-Imaginating

I picked up an already started project instead of a new one.  Yay for me!  Here is my progress since last time I worked on this one.  I stitched the white snowflake and started the P in peace.  I am in love with the colors so I am not sure why I put this one down!

It’s Finished!

I finished Easter Egg Hunt by Mill Hill Beads.  It didn’t take me too long, considering I don’t have much time to stitch.  I absolutely love this one!  Who knows what my next project will be?  🙂

 

Just a quick update

Here is my progress on Easter Egg Hunt.  I am getting there.

One of the local libraries has an annual craft supply sale.  People donate unwanted craft supplies and the library keeps the profits.  I donated a lot of cross stitch books, magazines and kits that I knew I wouldn’t use.  It was a great way to pare down!  I only spent $3 on the  kits below .  I think this was successful all the way around!  Now I just have to learn how to do plastic canvas.  haha
