Coming Home for the Holidays SAL Progress!

Since we missed our SAL weekend, because I was out of town, Jules and I decided to pick it up for the holiday weekend! I am actually pleasantly surprised at how much I was able to get in on this during the weekend. The weekends get a little crazy with the hubs home and the baby. It seems everytime I'm turning around someone needs to be fed, or cleaned, or entertained....ugh...But! I was able to get quite a bit of work in on it.

I worked mostly on the roof.  That durned thing is gonna kill me! It's the never ending bluish/purple mass that I will be stitching as I breath my last breath...or so it seems.  But I have to admit, it IS starting to look pretty good!!

I hope all my readers and followers in America had a wonderful Thanksgiving day! That you had a wonderful time with family and/or friends, and maybe got alot of stitching in too!

Now it's time for CHRISTMAS!!!

I did it!!! I posted about these yesterday and I made myself get off the computer and sit down and just stitch! Amazingly....I finished them both!! Now I'm trying to figure out what to do on The Abbey? Start the next two stockings? Or start Christmas card #4? Decisions Decisions!!

Slow stitching....Card #3, and some tiny stocking progress

 Yup, that's what I've been doing lately....stitching very slooooowly!!Ok, it's not so much that I'm stitching slowly, but that I have had very little time to devote to it. I started this Christmas card on Halloween day, and finished it on November 15th!!! Ok, so I have a good excuse, we were out of town for 11 days, but still! I can't believe how long it took! At this rate, I will definitely not have all my Christmas stitching done for this year! I shoulda started in June....of 2010!!!! Ha! Oh well, Life happens, right?
Here are the starts to the Littlest Stockings #'s7 and 8.  Again....SLOW! I'm trying so hard not to beat myself up, I have been spending so much time with my daughter (who knew a 20 month old had soooo much energy!)  and that is so much more important than stitching, but I miss being able to just sit down and devote large chunks of my day to a project.

And "The Abbey"? Huh? What's that?! I haven't touched it since before Halloween! Same with "Coming Home For the Holidays", my SAL piece I'm doing with Julie.   I'm not anticipating a whole lot of stitching time next week, either, with Thanksgiving on Thursday. Eh, oh happens, like I said.

Also, I've been sick with a nasty cold this week, so I've been wanting to rest alot more. by the time I tuck the little one in for the night,(around 7pm) it's about all I can do to just sit and stare at the TV for about an hour before I head off to bed. Don't you hate cold medicine buzzes? They are so not productive!! I'm glad I am starting to feel alot better!

Well, it's just about time for the tiny tot to be tucked in for her nap, and I am going to try to get some good stitching in while she's out! I'm hoping she gives me at least a good 2 hours to get something done!

On Vacation!!

I haven't been posting the last week and a half, because I am not home.  I have been stitching and will share photos soon! I am still trying to read blogs, though and think I have left a few comments here and there. Will definitely be around more once we get back home!
