Autumn Peace update

I was able to get just about half of page 7 done, which was my goal, so I'm hoping to have a finish on this one by the next time I post. Lets hope! It seems to be my priority piece lately, it's all I really LOVE working on lately, so it's been getting tons of love, and progress.

Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stitching!

I did it!! Less than 24 hours later!

 It only took me 25 more minutes to finish this little guy after posting yesterday, so I finished it up this morning and thought I'd take a minute and post it! These little guys are so cute!

Hope you re all having a great weekend!

Almost made it, but not quite!



All I have left to do to finish my July ornament, is backstitch, and I would have finished it!  Oh well, close enough! Oh, I also need to finish up the little holly bush on the left hand side.  this is the first time I didn't finish my ornie on time for it's update post! Hoping that won't happen again. I don't know what it was, I just had a hard time pulling this one out. I'm just stuck on Autumn Peace and seem to always just want to pull it out and work on it, leaving my other two projects to lay untouched. But I will def. finish this up by next month  and have my August ornie completely done.  fingers crossed.

Thank you for stopping by, and hope you all have a great weekend! Happy stitching!

DS2N update

I was able to get a good chunk of work in on this one, tis time! I finished page 6! (Which was my goal, I'm pretty sure) and have moved down to page 9, I'm almost finished with this first column of the page. I'm starting to enjoy working more on this one, now, as you can see that the color palette has changed from all the light cream/whites of the day angel's wing, to much darker tones, which I am really enjoying quite a bit more! 

So, we will see how far I can get with this one by the next time I update!
Thank you for reading! Have a great day!

Autumn Peace update!

 I was able to finish page 6 in June ! WOW!

 And make a good start on page 7!!
This one is the one I most like to work on! I just love all the colors! I pick it up and never want to set it back down!  Which is good, since it's a gift for my mom, and I would like to have it done for her birthday next year....we'll see if that happens.  (Her birthday is the end of April, so still got quite a bit of time.) However since it DID take an entire year to finish the first row of 5 pages and I still have two more rows of pages to finish I'm not sure how realistic it is to reach that goal. Although, I'm already on the 2nd page of this row of 5 pages, and the fist and 5th pages are only half pages, and the bottom row is made up of close to half pages I think, so it may be doable!

Giving myself a goal of a 10x10 block everyday really seems to help me stay on track!

Hope you're all doing well! We'll see you tomorrow for my last update of this month!

a VERY late June ornament fnish!


I was able to finish this on June 30th, I've just been unable to update my blog this month, just been super busy!! July is usally a busy month for us, as my husbands birthday and our wedding anniversary (12 years this year!) are in July.

So, these posts are gonna be late! Sorry!  I'm hoping to stay caught up in August! 

Thank you for reading, and have a great day!

DS2N progress



This piece has really been giving me issues. Not in the sense that I'm messing up and needing to frog, or anything like that, but all those light colors in the wing there? They are driving me crazy. I hate stitching light colors on a  light colored fabric, it's annoying, and there's lots of confetti, which I must admit brings in a lot of detail, but it is a Pain in the you know what! So, still no page finish on this one yet, I'm hoping next month to have a finish on this one! I started this page on Feb. 28th.  It is time to DONE!!! Way past time!!

So, please wish me luck!!

Thank you , as always, for stopping by, and reading!! I hope you have a great sunshiney, stitch day!!
