The Gaze update

I’ve gotten a pretty good start on page 4 this month. This is a little over 1500 stitches on the page.

Still doing well, still stitching, still working, just haven’t felt like blogging.  Been feeling kinda “Meh” lately.

Sorry for such a boring post. Hope you’re all doing well and are safe and healthy and enjoying your stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy stitching!!

Winter Rose-finish on park #3

 Here’s my finish on park #3. 4000 stitches done in April on Winter Rose.

Here’s how it looked when I started on April 1st:
So I was happy with that progress and meeting that challenge.

Park #4 will be Moonlight Bay. I’m excited to get that piece out, as I haven’t pulled it out so far this year. So We’ll see what 4000 stitches look like in it in 40 days.

Thank you for stopping by! And happy stitching!

The Gaze

I was able to get a page finish on this piece since I last updated! So that was page three done, and I’m now done with the top row of pages on this project.

As you can see I got that page finish quite awhile ago. I just haven’t felt like updating.

Me and my family are doing well. I’m still working, but now on top of that I also have to do homeschooling with my daughter who’s 9 now and sometimes by the time I’m done dealing with all that drama, I just haven’t had the mental energy to post here. I love my family but it’s draining for me as an extreme introvert to have them home ALL. THE. TIME. Then still having to go to work and deal with more people there.... I stitch, I read and try not not go crazy. Lol.

I am thankful for health and still being able to work, during this rough time. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but it’s just draining for me. I’ll get through this.

I pray that you and yours are all healthy and doing well, and you are maybe finding some peace and solace in your stitching.

Stay calm, and stitch on, my friends! Thankyou for stopping by! Have a great week! And I will try to get more regular updates here now.

Joyful stitching!!

Park #2 done!!

I finished 4001 stitches on Mermaid Tales by Heaven and Earth Designs to complete the second park in Tier 1 for the National Park Challenge. 

Here’s what it looked like when I started:

I’m so happy with this progress!! It’s really looking nice!!
For my third park I will be working on Winter Rose. I’m really excited to pull that one out and see what 4000 stitches in on it will look like! 

Hope everyone is staying safe out there. Taking caution where needed and if you’re quarantined, getting lots of stitches in!! 

Thank you for stopping by! Happy stitching!!

The Gaze update

Here’s how it looks today:

Here’s how it looked a month ago:

The ear is filled in and I’ve filled in more of the orange on the right side. It doesn’t look like much, but I put in 578 stitches, so not too bad, every stitch counts. 

Happy stitching everyone! Thank you for stopping by!! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Finally! I finished my first Ornament!

I finally finished this one!! I think I started it last summer. Wow!! It is super cute though. I’m happy with it. 

So, onto my next one. Seeing as how my goal is to finish 6 ornaments this year, that’s about one every other month, so we’ll see if I can get the next one done by the end of April.
