Sea of Roses progress!

Wow! I haven't been around much this month... Been busy with some other things. Had house guests, and bad weather (flooding) that kept My daughter home from school. Errands and appointments, just been busy. 
Plus I am still trying to figure out a good rotation and so I seem to just be picking up whatever I feel like, so when it comes day to post sometimes I feel as if there really isn't much to show, so I just skip it. Just being a bad blogger! 
One project I have seemed to really gravitate towards has been Sea of Roses, so here's progress:
Last time you saw it: (March 5th)

Today:

I have been addicted to this one!! I think she is so pretty!  Just need to finish her nose and an eye and her face is pretty much finished.  
That's about it here. I'm going to try to get back to posting regularly again, but no promises! 
Thank you for reading! I hope you all have a lovely stitch filled week!

Finish number 2 for 2016


I'm really enjoying working on these little snowmen. I'm gonna miss working on them once I'm done with the series. 
This one stitched up super quick. I finished it in 4 days! So now I'm working on DS2N, which I shall share progress of the next time I post! 

Happy stitching!

A new start!

So! When my mom was here last month, we were talking about some of my stitching projects, and I was showing her some of what I was working on as well as some of my stash. 
Weeeelll.... When I showed her this:
She loved it so much, so I've decided to stitch it for her.
Here's my progress thus far:

That is roughly 1000 stitches. In about 5 hours time. 
I'm working 2 over 1 on 22 count, tent stitch. 
This is my first time stitching on a higher count fabric than 18 and my first time stitching in tent stitch. I think the coverage is ok. Not great, but it's not bad. So, yeah. Another BAP full coverage piece. (15 pages) I'm glad it's stitching up so quickly.  

So that's what I've been up to. Thank you for stopping in! I hope you all have a great rest of your week!

Flower Bride progress

Last time I posted:

Now:

So far I've worked on this page (3) for a little over 11 hours. 11 hours to do that much!! This is gonna take awhile. There was a lot of confetti in the first 2 columns, now I'm getting into more larger chunks of color so it's going a bit faster, thank goodness! I'm still really enjoying this project. 
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you all have a lovely week!

First finish for 2016!!

FINALLY! I have my first finish for the year!

Isn't he cute?! I love this little guy!! I started him the day after Christmas and just finished him a few minutes ago!! I can't believe it's taken so long!! Of course I've had a lot of things taking up my time other than just stitching lately, plus I work a rotation, so I wasn't working JUST on him. 
But boy, does it feel great to have a finish!! 
I am aiming to also finish page 2 of Day Surrendering to Night by the end of this month. I have less than a complete column to go until I see a finish on it. 

So next time I post I will share my update on DS2N. 
Hope everyone has a great week!
Joyful stitching to you all! And thank you for stopping by!!

As you know my mom was here visiting the last half of February so not a lot of stitching happened during those last 2 weeks, but I was able to get a little bit done.
Last time I posted:

Today:

Well it seems I got a lot more done than I thought! I love when that happens!!  So I'm happy with my progress! 

Next time I will share my Christmas Snowman, he's coming along, but very slowly. Maybe I can get some good work in on him this week. Fingers crossed! 

Thanks for stopping by! I'll see yah next time!
