DS2N progress!

I reallllly worked like crazy on this during the past 5 days!! Still so in love with this project! 
Which is a good thing because I was looking back and realized I started this page on February 1st!!! Over SEVEN months ago!!!!! That's more than half a year to get this far. I'm not even done with the first page!! At this rate it will take me 5 years to finish!!! 
So then I looked in my WIP drawer. I have three HAED pieces, 7 Kustom Kraft pieces and a Mystic stitch!!! If it takes me 5+ years to complete one, I will finish the last one when I'm 96 years old! Ha!!! Which means I really want to focus more on my stitching now. Man! Why couldn't I just be a pretty sparkley vampire?! Then I'd have many many many years to get it all done!

A finish!! And some progress...

First up is my finish on my first ornie in this Santas series of ten ornaments. It's cute! 
And next is a blob.... But with some work will end up being Santa sitting in a gold sleigh holding a little Christmas tree, with a blue and black checkered blanket over his lap. 
Well that's about it here. We are expecting some heavy storms to hit tonight, so I'm off to watch some DVDs of "Father Dowling Mysteries." Anyone remember that show? I used to watch it with my mom when I lived at home, we enjoyed it. That Father Frank and Sister Stephanie were always gettin' in some scrapes! Fun times! Hope you all have a great weekend, and it's filled with lots of stitchy goodness!

Web of Life update

I forced myself to work on this the past few days. I used to really like this piece but now I find myself kinda dreading its 5 days in my rotation whenever they come around. I'm running out of the colors I need for this one, so I'm thinking either I need to go get them or try to substitute colors that might work, just so I can get this done. Or! I can set it aside all together for a bit and work on something else. I can't decide... Anyway. I was able to finish the two feathers sticking up on the right hand side of the pipe, as well as filled in more of the pipe itself, and also did a bit more fill in on the two large feathers hanging down from the medallion. So, slowly there is progress. I hope all my American readers are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend! I'm doing a read-a-thon with a group at goodreads this weekend, so not stitching too much. But I will be working on Day Surrendering to Night again on Tuesday.

DS2N more Progress!

This is so enjoyable to work on!! I am loving every stitch!! I think my stitchy mojo has returned! I was also able to kit up the new ornament series and got some more work in on the first Santa piece!  I was gonna to keep working on Day Surrendering to Night until noon,on and off, then post a photo then, but I got a little sick cookie here who needs lots of mama cuddles! So a day in the easy chair with lots of juice and toddler shows on Netflix it is! Hope you all had a great weekend!!! Joyful stitching to you all!!

I Love Santas! Ornie # 1!!

So, I seem to be in a partial stitching slump lately! Meaning I want to stitch, but just been too lazy to get into my stash and pull the threads I need for this next series: "I Love Santas".  For what you see here I just used some of the same threads that were used in the Winter Fun series. I think once I pull my threads and get everything correctly kitted up, this series will be a lot of fun to work on!  Well that's about it here. I also worked some on DS2N but I will share that in my next post... Hopefully much sooner than it took me to post this one!  I hope your weekends are wonderful and filled with stitchy goodness!!

Just a little goodbye and show and tell...

I could not believe it when I heard that Robin Williams had passed away. I audibly gasped I was so surprised. Well some of you on my Facebook page have probably already seen this. But as many people know , Robin Williams would often go overseas and do free shows for the troops stationed overseas. My Husband had the honor of getting to meet him in Iraq during one of his tours. And he was able to get his Booney hat signed by Robin. So. While my heart grieves I am happy to be able to have this article portraying the kindness that Robin Williams showed to many. Rest in Peace Robin! Thanks for the many smiles and laughs! 
I will be back tomorrow with a stitchy update!

DS2N progress

Got quite a bit more done on this one! I really love working on this! The next 5 days are supposed to be "ornament days" according to my rotation schedule, but I'm tempted to just keep working in this! Although I AM excited to start the next series in my ornament book...Santas! We will see what happens!
