Progress- The Abbey

Well, I'm just about done with the house part on the page I'm on (6) and am now starting to work on filling in the clouds! I really am enjoying this one!
How was everyone's Memorial day Weekend? Mine was nice, relaxing. I didn't get a lot of stitching in, as I have a hard time doing so when the hubby is home, but I got a little bit in. We BBQed on Monday and just had a nice family time weekend!

Was thinking about going to the movies on Sunday afternoon, but I had a bad headache that day, so we ended up cancelling the babysitter and not going. Took a nap and just relaxed.

That's about it here! I hope all my American readers had a wonderful holiday Weekend.

Cozy Re-Tweet progress!

Wow, I have been calling this one every name but what it's REAL name is, But the title of this post is the CORRECT name for this project...Cozy Re-Tweet, NOT Sweet Re-Tweet, OR Home-Tweet Home....WHERE did I get those from?!?!?! ::shaking head::

So here is the last 2/2 1/2 weeks worth of work on this one, it is stitching up pretty quickly! I am enjoying working on this!

Well, this is a 4 day weekend, so not sure what we will do with 4 free days, but if the weather is nice, we may go to the beach, we'll see!

Hope you have a nice holiday (or non-holiday, if you're not in America) weekend!!
See yah all on Monday!

The Abbey Progress- 2 weeks worth!

Sorry for the craptastic photo! It's really dark out today, so couldn't get anything better, indoor lighting just washed it out and the others had massive shadows (even worse than this!) Of course the lighting had nothing to do with the lovely creases and folds, nope, that's ALLL ME!

I missed last weeks postings BIG time! I couldn't even tell yah why...laziness probably! Ooops!
Not much going on around here, just enjoying playing with little Alyssa and passing the days away! Happy stitching!

I have finished page three (just this afternoon, infact!) and am now onto page 6! I am more than half way finished with that one! 5 of 9 pages are done! See yah all Monday! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

SAL progress on Coming Home for the Holidays

This month I worked mostly on the left hand side of the house. It's comin' along....slowly but surely!

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Wow! It's been a while!

Wow! Life has just been crazy busy! Not much time for going on the computer and blogging. As my daughter gets older, she is more demanding of my time, so I spend alot more time with her and less time on the computer! So, apologies for my absence! It's like I posted those last two finishes and said "Ok, I'm done!" and never came back!

But as you know me and the hubs have been working out regularly, to a program called P90. And boy is it crazy intense! But I wanted to share a cute photo of my hubby and daughter! It is so cute! When we work out, she tries to do the exercises with us!!! So, here is Hubby and his new personal trainer!

And now onto Stitchy business! So, I made the decision to 1) fill in Howling at the Moon's spot with The Abby, and here is my progress on it! The work I've done in the past few weeks has mostly been all those clouds on the right hand side, which I am almost finished with! So that is pages 1,2,4 and 5 complete, and 3 almost complete. So I still have 6,7,8, and 9 to finish. The last time I posted this was in June of 2010! Almost two years!! Which would explain the rust stain...yup, stupid me, I left my needle in my fabric and it rusted, so if you have any good ideas on how to get those two tiny rust marks out of my fabric I'd appreciate any tips! Thanks!
And 2) I decided to fill in "Patchwork Bear's spot with a new start! I know! I'm so bad! But oh well! I decided to start The birdhouse series (three in the series) I think it's called "Sweet Re-tweet" or something. And I will be sharing photos of that progress in my next project!

Well, I do hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I am planning to, my hubby is going snorkeling tomorrow if the weather is good, so I have all day to stitch!!! Yippeee! Which is good, because it's my SAL weekend with Jules!!! So Probably on Monday I will share that and my progress on Sweet Re-tweet!
Til next time, happy stitching!
