DS2N Progress



Gah!! again with the slow progress! I finished one column on this plus a little tiny bit up the on the upper right. However! That is the last column for this row of pages! so when I'm done with this column, I can move down to page #6 My goal for the month is to finish this page and get at least 1 or 2 columns done on the next page. We'll see how that goes!

I'm hoping that progress picks up next month! Wish me luck!

Thank you for stopping by! Hope you all have a lovely day! See yah next month!

Autumn Peace...progress.

Well, as I wrote in my last post, very little got done by way of stitching last month due to my husband returning from a 6 month deployment, so I did not make it to my goal on this one! Not even half way to my goal! Which is sort of frustrating, but oh well, what can yah do? Family comes first! So! here's where I'm at with this one:


I finished one and maybe a half of the second column on page 4....pathetic...oh well, better luck to me this month. I am hoping to have a finish on this page by the time I share it again in March. Keep your fingers crossed that I am able to accomplish that goal!

Thank you for reading! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Ornament finish and progress!

Well! I was able to finish my first ornie of the year for January! He looks like this:


I think he came out super cute!

Next I started this one:
It's a snowman holding a sign saying "I love Snowmen" I was able to get most of the sign done, but still have a long ways to go! So! even though I only finished 1 ornie so far, I'm on track on my goal to finish 1 a month, and I'm hoping to be able to keep up with this trend.

Progress on Stitching as of late has been a lot less than normal, due to the fact that hubby is now home!! so, we've been spending time together as a family, and such, which totally cuts into the stitching, but that's alright...stitching will always be there, but I got 1/2 a year of time with him to make up for!

Thank you all for reading, and I hope you all have a lovely weekend! Thank you all for the lovely kind comments!
See yah next time!

Day Surrendering to Night Progress


I have been working on page 3 of this one, it's only a partial page, so it shouldn't take too long, and I hope to be done with it, and down to page 6 (directly under 3) by the time I share this one again. I would really like to finish this piece this year, but something tells me I will get close, but won't quite make it. But that's alright. Then I should have two Full coverage piece finishes to celebrate next year!  (Autumn Peace and this one) But I will push on! There are only three partial pages (3,6, and 9) then two full pages (7 and 8) and some fill in on page 5, and this one will be DONE!!!  I'm super excited!

Thank you for reading! Hope you are having a great day! See yah next month!

Autumn Peace....Another Page Finish!


So! Pages 1,2, and 3 are now finished! And page 4 has a tiny bit of a start. There is a ton of black in page 4, so I hope that 1) it goes fast, all those large chunks of the same color, and 2) I don't get bored of stitching black for what will seem like forever! 

My goal for this one for this month is to finish the first 4 columns of page 4, so we shall see if I do it by the time I post again! 

I hope you're all having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year!!

I know, we're already 11 days into the new year already, so I'm a bit late on that greeting, but close enough.
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas,(Or whatever holiday you celebrate!) and New Year.  Me and my daughter had an amazing time, visiting my family in Southern California. Got to see a lot of family, and enjoyed lots of fun.

However! I was not able to get much stitching done, which is fine! Hanging out and visiting with family was more important. I only took my ornies with me to work on while I was there. I never trust myself to take any of my full coverage projects with me when I travel, afraid I'll lose them, or components of them, and then I'd be broken hearted, so, I took my faithful traveling companions....my ornies.
This is what I got done:
I have been working on him a tiny bit this month since I've gotten home, but, my goal for this one this month is to finish this one. I would like to finish one ornie a month this year. So, hopefully I can do so. I don't know why, but they always seem to get shoved out of the way so I can work on my big projects. I guess because in my head I think that they aren't as big so don't need as much love, so I put them off until it's later in the month, then I just end up running out of time, or something? Who knows?  But I do want to try to finish 12 during 2017, or one a month.

I was going to post an end of the year wrap up post, but I just never got around to it, sorry. Now that I'm having to post on my computer it's just such a pain, so I put it off, and now here it is the 11th of the month, and I'm just ready to move forward. I can say, however, that I WAS able to complete one of my major goals for last year...finishing Sea of Roses. My first Heaven and Earth design finish! And I am SO proud of it, and totally looking forward to more full coverage finishes very soon....possibly by the end of 2017? We shall see!

I hope the first of the year is treating everyone good so far, and you're all well on your way to meeting those New Year goals, and resolutions, and enjoying lots of stitching.
And hope everyone is safe from all the crazy weather out there!

Thank you for reading, and I'll see yah soon! Have a great week!

Sea of Roses is......Finished!!!

Sea of Roses
Heaven and Earth Designs
stitched with 2 strands of DMC
Full crosses on 18 count Aida
Started January 20th, 2014, finished December 8th, 2016
Finished size: 8X10

My biggest goal this year was to finish this project....And!! I did it!!!
I was so happy to get it done.

So, I had made this my focus piece for most the year, so I could get it done this year. Now I am thinking I will bring Day Surrendering to Night back into my rotation, and try to get it done up soon-ish. So, now my focus piece will be Autumn Peace, since it's a gift for my mom, and I would like to give it to her for her birthday in April of 2018, my secondary piece will be DS2N, Then I will sprinkle my Christmas smalls in here and there, like I do, to break up the tediousness of full coverage stitching.

So, you will start seeing a lot more of Autumn Peace and Day Surrendering to night. I would like to finish DS2N in 2017, but I'm not counting on it, so if it doesn't happen, I won't be too disappointed. But, you never know what might happen!

Well, I'm off to go visit my family for Christmas. I am really excited about that! I am going to schedule a post to go up on the 30th, though so you will get to see what I've been working on, and also probably do an end of the year wrap up as well.

I hope all my readers have an amazing Christmas, and enjoy these last couple days of 2016! Thank you all for reading and for your lovely comments. I cherish them so much!


                       Merry Christmas!!
