My mojo took a vacation!

I have just been in a funk lately. Not stitching, not reading, not writing....but there's a good sized dent in my Netflix list! I hope you are all enjoying your stitching. I'm gonna curl up in a blanket and watch another episode of 24... Thank you for reading!

Mystic Dragon Progress

Well I was able to get all the pink done on the front of his throat, worked on some of the blue at the bottom and then that streak of light yellow going up the right hand side. I'm trying to get to the top, so I can start working on the decorative circle that goes around him. This pattern is kinda hard to follow. Lots of color changes and partial stitches, but the circle is pretty straight forward stitching. So I thought I could use it as " reward stitching" for working on the dragon itself.  If that makes any sense lol. 
Well me and my little one are sick with colds. Mine seems to be more in my chest than my nose, but she is coughing and has a runny nose. 
Well, next up will be progress on "Web of Life". 
Happy stitching all!

First finish of 2014!! Winter fun Ornament #7

Well, I finally got my first finish of the year!!! Go me!! I really am enjoying working on these little ornaments, especially since I have so many HUGE projects in the works this year. I'm only expecting to see 2, maybe 3 finishes other than these little guys, over the course of the year. I hope to finish The Abbey, Web of Life, and possibly Mystic Dragon. The rest? No way. Probably won't even see a finish on them for years! LOL
 And here's to show Just how the backstitching really makes an impact on these projects:
Before backstitch they are just a blob of random color!

Joyful stitching!

Day Surrendering to Night First progress photo

I am really pleased with the amount of work I was able to get done on this! This is my first update on this one! This one is a Kustom Kraft piece.  It has been in my stash for many years, and I am so happy to be able to work on it this year, finally!

Well, after about 15 days of working on very detailed BAPs I will now return to my Christmas Ornaments for the next 5 days once again, for the next 5 days! I am ready for the break from these big ones, and get some work in on some smaller projects. Maybe I will actually get a finish this time!
