Stitching my fingers off!

October has been a very productive month when it comes to stitching! I finished something like 5 smalls! Q,R,S, September and October blocks, and right now we are having a typhoon, so I am thinking that I will be able to get lots of stitching in the next two days and I am really hoping to finish letter T before months end. I am going to start it today. And there is still 4 days left until the end of the month so I am pretty sure I will get it done!!
So, here is a picture of my September block!!! I liked this one!! I think it is cute!
Well, I'm off this computer so go settle in on the couch and stitch or read the storm out. I am in the middle of "The Swan Thieves" By Elizabeth Kostova, the author of "The Historian", which was amazing, and "The Swan Thieves" is also amazing!! I have a hard time deciding between stitching and reading!! I only need to read 8 more books to reach my 75 book goal for the year!

Thank you!!!

To everyone who responded to my requst in my last post! I thought I may have the name wrong. The one for writing a novel is called NaNoWriMo....but I wasn't sure if there was one for blogging. Thank you so much!!!


Is anyone doing this? Isn't it in Nov? I am able to find stuff on NaNoWriMo, but not NaNoBlogMo....if anyone else is doing it or can give me any info I'd be grateful....I'm thinking I may like to try it. I know alot of people just use it as a time to try to post at least once a day...that is what I am aiming to do, not so much the 50,000 word count thing...Any info you can share would be appreciated! Thanks!

Q is for Queen!

Well, so far this month is going well stitching wise for me!! I have already finished Q,R and my September block and have a good start on the letter S. So, even though I have not done ALL that I had set out to do, I have been doing better than the past couple of months, which is sort of surprising, considering the fact that I have also been spending alot of time online playing FB games! Oops! I have also already read (I think) 6 books this month and am half way done with #7, and I have only 9 more books to reach my 75 book goal for the year!!! So, I a happy with my progress I have made this month on both reading and stitching goals. I will share Letter R and my September block in the next couple of days, that way I can post more....I need to. I don't know why I get so lazy when it comes to posting here! I am going to try to be better about that!!

Well, I hope you are all doing well, I am enjoying seeing all the Fall/Halloween stitching going on out there right now!!! I was tossing around the idea of starting some myself, but decided to just keep going with my present goals of my monthly smalls, Howling at the Moon and The baby lambs. Maybe next year! Well, I have a doc. appt. today so gotta get going! Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post about the baby!!! She is doing good so far, and loves to kick me all night long!!! How someone who is so small put so much weight behind those tiny kicks is beyond me!!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Howling at the Moon- an update...finally!

The last time I showed progress on this one was in June!!!! I thought it was time to show it off a bit again! Granted I have not done too much since then, probably only put about 10-15 hours in on it since, but this month I decided that I was going to pull it out alot more often! How much more often? EVERYDAY!!! If you look on my sidebar, I have a ticker counter ticking off the 31 days of October for this project. So far I'm right on...I've stitched on it 3 hours so far this month, which is good since there have been 3 days of the month. This project has been in the works since May of 2008 and I decided it was time to get it finished! At this rate I may finish it by summer of next year...we shall see, since once the baby comes who knows how much stitching will get done again.
Along with this challenge I have decided to post my progress on it every Monday. So, we shall see how this goes. I am hopeful, of course I was hopeful about my smalls getting done last month and we saw how that went! I'm doing pretty well with them so far, I finished the letter Q today and will share a photo of it on Wednesday! So Now I've finished my smalls for August, now onto the three for September!
If you want to see how it looked the last time I worked on it here's the link:
