Autum Peace: Progress!

Last time I posted (Aug. 5th):

Today:

It's stitching up nicely! You can see the start of the trunk of the big tree. That was  (is) A boat load of black stitching!! Works for me! It goes fast, those huge chunks of the same color! 
I'm still really enjoying this piece so much! And I'm so excited to start seeing some of the branches and the trunk of the tree coming into play! 
Well I'm off to make some lunch. I think grilled cheese and tomato soup sounds so good today. So I'll make that and enjoy some CSI: Miami, then clean up lunch and stitch some more, either on this one, or my ornament. I've been on a big stitchy kick this past week, so I'm so happy about that. My stitchy bug bit me again!! Yay! 
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend! Thank you for dropping by! Also thank you for all the lovely comments you guys left with such kind words about my daughter starting kindergarten! She is really enjoying it! 
See yah again, in about 5 days!

Ornament update

I started ornament #4 in this "Let it snow" series of snowmen. I'm late in posting because I really wanted to get a bit more progress on it so here he is:

He's wearing a little coat and hat and holding a sign that says "Let it snow". He's adorable and can't wait to have him finished up! I've still got quite a ways to go to get to that point. But he's a lot of fun to stitch, so I don't mind. 
Hope you're all having a great week! My daughter started kindergarten this week... She loves it! She comes home exhausted but happy everyday. So I'm Able to get a bit more stitching in lately with her gone for 7 hours a day.  
Thank you for stopping in! See yah again soon!

Sea of Roses Progress

Last time I posted (July 27):

Now:

Still very little progress. I haven't been wanting to work on this much, I don't know why. I love this project, I just never seem to reach for it on its days of my rotation. I seem to just want to put all my time into Autumn Peace. Oh well, there's a little progress and a little is better than none! 
Thank you for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Autumn Peace Progress

Last time I posted:

Where I got in the past 6 days or so:
I'm almost done with the first column. It's really only a partial column. If you can see where my needle is parked on the top  that's the beginning of the new page. 

Also! I think I've decided to crop this design and not stitch the whole thing. It's SO big (15 pages, over 75,000 stitches) and because I want this to be a gift for my mom, I want to finish it as quickly as I can. 
So here's the original picture:

Here's what I will be stitching:
So I've just chopped off the ends of both sides. I still think it's pretty, but less time consuming.  So! It's kind of a good thing now looking back, that I messed up and had to start on p. 2, because I'll be cutting off most of 1 anyway.  So it all works out! 

Thankyou for stopping by! I hope you all have a lovely weekend! See yah in about 5 days with an update on Sea of Roses.

Mini Happy Dance!!


I finished my first page of Autumn Peace!!! 
5,616 stitches done!!!! It only took me 2 months!! Approximately 50 hours!!! Wow!! Now I've only got 56,384 more stitches to go! And about 700 more hours!!! Lol. 
Wow!! When I put it that way it seems like it's gonna take me the rest of my life to get it done!! Next page I'm gonna TRY to get it done in less than 2 months! Good luck to me!! 
Thank you all for reading! Hope you have a great weekend, I'll be back tomorrow with an update on my ornament.
