A cute Christmas small

I have done pretty bad on my Ornaments goal this year. I wanted to finish 10 this year. I think I’ve completed two! Oops... oh well, I’ve gotten a lot of other fun stitching in, thanks to the Full Coverage Fanatics group on Facebook. I love their challenges and SALs. So I’ve seen lots of progress on my other pieces and that makes me happy.  I am hoping to finish these guys by years end. And then setting a much smaller goal for Ornies next year.

I am so excited for stitchy goals for next year. I’ve been playing around with rotation ideas and goal and challenge ideas for next year. I love planning out what I want to accomplish in the new year. Anyone else do this?

Well I’m off to get more stitches in!! Hope you’re all having a good day, and getting lots of stitching in to finish off this year strong.

Thank you for reading! Joyful Stitching!!

Almost to a finish!! So close!

I am so close to a finish on my Flower Bride piece!! I got in 850 stitches this month and will finish it next month, before the end of the year. Should be easy enough! 

I really want to keep working on it, but I have so many other stitchy goals to finish this month. So I’ll let this one rest until next month. I’m super excited to see it finished! 

Well that’s about all I’ve got for now. Thank you for reading, and until next time- Joyful Stitching!!

Winter Rose Progress this month so far!

Here’s where it was when I Picked it up at the beginning of this month 

And here’s where it is now today. So far I’ve gotten 780 stitches in. So I’m right on track to hit my 2400 stitch goal for this month.

And here’s what it will look like completed:

Progress on The Gaze for October

 I was able to get 2400 stitches in on this piece this month! Now that I’m not on the road, I can put more time into my stitching. I think he’s starting to look pretty good! He’s got one eye.

I don’t know when I’ll be pulling this one out again, as I will be focusing on Flower Bride until the end of the year. And to fulfill SAL requirements in Full Coverage Fanatics (FB group) I will be devoting the rest of my Stitching time on Winter Rose.  

Can you believe there are only 2 more months left of 2019?!  I’m excited for the holidays, but I’m definitely looking forward to next year Stitching Goals and challenges. I love this time of year, not only for the festive holiday feeling, but also this is when I start planning for  stitching and reading  goals and challenges for the following year. 

I hope you all have a lovely month of November as we start wrapping up this year and looking forward to next year and all the holiday festivities.

Hopefully you will find time to get lots of stitching done.
Thank you for stopping in!!

I’m back! I think...?

Well we made it to Alaska!   Thank you all for your wonderful comments on my last post. Yeah, it’s been an adjustment, but I think I’m gonna like it here. I am still stitching, but also busy with some new life things as well. Of course the move to a new place, and I am now working part time, which is a new adjustment, I haven’t worked out of the home in ten years. So, trying to balance work life with stitchy life and family life is a bit of a challenge, but so far I think I’m surviving ok.

Here is where I’m at on Flower Bride. I have made it a goal to finish this piece this year. I think it’s doable. There are only about 2000 stitches left to finish her up. So, that’s what I’ve been trying to focus on for now. We will see how it goes.

I’d also like to try to update here on the blog more. I know we are almost done with the year, but it’s never too late, right?  But now that I’m pretty much settled in I think I can devote a bit more time to the blog.

Thank you all for reading and I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween, if you celebrate.  I cannot believe we’re sliding into the home stretch of this year! It went so fast!! Holidays are upon us!!

Happy Stitching everyone!

Been busy, but still getting some stitches in!

Sorry about all the wrinkles! But I wanted to show you how far I’ve gotten with Flower Bride! I’m so excited!! I’m now stitched all the way to the very bottom of what I’m going to do on this design. There are still 2 more pages down past where I am, but it’s all just dress, and I didn’t feel the need to put it in. Plus I had a slub in my fabric which ended up being a hole. So I have less than 2 full pages left until I finish this! So, now I’m making this a focus on a finish piece, and would like to have her done by years end.
   Which may be a feat, since we are currently in the middle of moving from Louisiana to Alaska. We haven’t left Louisiana yet, but it’s been crazy busy getting everything done. So, the moving (ie: Road trip) will happen the end of the month. So things have been a little nuts around here, but I get stitches in where I can. I’m still trying to keep up with the “By the Numbers “ SALs  at the Full Coverage Fanatics group on Facebook. So wish me luck!!

As always, Thankyou for taking the time to read my post, and I hope wherever you are or whatever you’re doing, you’re able to get lots of enjoyable stitching in!

Happy Stitching!! Have a great week!

Another finish!!

I finally got this little guy done!! I don’t know why it seemed to take SO long!!  Guess just been focusing more on my larger pieces. Oh well, it’s done now, and time to move onto the next one in the series. Having a finish feels so good even if it’s small.

Hope you all have a great week and thank you for reading!! Happy Stitching!!
