A whole lotta stitchin' goin' on!

Just not a lot of blogging, and posting of the pictures of the stitching itself! Ikept with my rotation everyday this week, even my dad's piece which I alwasy find a hard project to pick up. The only day I did mess up a bit, which I have already confessed to is I worked on my ornaments for two days and Fright Night Friends only one! But that is alright, I had Tuesday off from work so was able to catch up a bit on it!

Well, this week I am supposed to start a new job so I don't know what kind of time that will allow for stitching. I am not looking forward to it, but I have to do it. It's not a real job, per se, but I have to finish my practicum to get my degree in addiction counseling. And I have 100 hours to do, and I want to get that started this week and get that out of the way, I should have done it WAY before now but I am the worlds largest procrastinator, and so I HAVE to do it NOW, because if I don't I won't be able to get my degree. It shouldn't be too bad. If I work 25 hours a week there, then I should have it done by the end of Nov. in one month's time, I will have it done.
Anyway, enough about that junk, I am going to try to show you some progress photo's. The first one is Love, Joy Home. I actually got a bit done on it today, although I ended up having to frog a bit too, I was off count by two threads at the bottom of the four squares with the baskets in them. but I did alright on it.

Next is Fright Night Friends. Which I wanted to have in time to be up for Halloween, but that is in like 16 days, so I don't think so, especially with the way my time is going to be diminishing here soon.
But you can see that I finished all the stitches int he orange pumpkin costume, and started the backstitching on him, and also worked a lot on the Lettering in "Happy Halloween". So, he's comin' along! I still have not been able to get the thread for the fence, and I am not sure now with having to do this internship that I will have the time before I want to have this finished to get it done, so I don't think this is a goal I will be meeting this year, and yet! I may surprise us all!
And lastly I want to share progress on Midnight Watchman:
...or not. I think Blogger has had enough of me for the night, I guess I will have to post the midnight watchman some other time, for now, though I am off to bed, to read a bit, and then go to sleep! Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Love, Joy, Home is looking fantastic... I can't wait to see it finished!

Oh my gosh... I am so tempted by that magazine with the gingerbread men!! I keep telling myself that I'd never stitch it though because I'm going to be so sick of gingerbread colours after I finish my next afghan LOL.

Great to see your projects again!

You are going to be one busy gal for the next month, but it's good to get it behind you. I'm a huge procrastinator myself. :D
