Precious Moments progress

Despite being out of town for about a week, I was able to get quite a  bit done on this. It seems to be stitching up pretty quick. Which while there are a lot of fractional stitches, that are a pain, there are also huge sections of the same color. No confetti stitching, really. So I think that really helps keep the pace pretty fast on this one. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving here in the states!!

New Start progress #1!

I finally got off my lazy behind and pulled the threads and got this project started. Which is good because it's a gift for my parents 50th wedding anniversary... Which was LAST August! So it is now more than a year overdue! They are coming out here for a visit mid-February for my daughters birthday, and I'm really going to try and have this done and framed and ready to give to them then! So I have about 3 months to get this stitched up and framed. So... Wish me luck. It's a fairly easy piece, shouldn't take too long! I finished all this in 3 days (about 4 hours worth of work) it's a pretty easy stitch. It's a picture of two Precious Moments kids holding an hour glass and it's called "Counting our Moments together". My mom collects PMs. So I showed her my patterns and this is the one she picked. And I will probably personalize it as well.  Wish me luck! I think I'm gonna need it!

Happy Monday!! (Is there such a thing?)

Well, I have no photos to share, because I have done no stitching the past 5 days. My "new start" only has an empty labeled color card the fabric and copy of the pattern in a bag. That's as far as I got. I never pulled the threads or found a fresh needle... Sigh...

I was doing a read-a-long with a group on goodreads, and so have spent much of my time reading that book. (Which was "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe" by Fannie Flagg. Which is the book that the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" was based off of.) it was an amazingly fun read. 

And!!! My hubby got my Sims3 installed on a good computer, so I've just been busy playing hours of Sims3. It is SO addicting!!!

But! I want to try to post on my blog all 6 times this month, as I usually don't bother blogging if I don't have any stitching to share. But I need more discipline in my life. So, I shall attempt to post all 6 days this month. Stitches or no stitches to share, I'm posting!!! I just hope I don't bore you with all my drivel. Well I better get going. Today is my birthday, and I know Hubby has lots of things planned for the day!! Happy stitching!! See yah in 5 days, come heck or high water!

DS2N more progress

I am just going right along with this one.

On October 30th it looked like this:

As of this morning it looks like this:

Little by little it's getting a bit more filled in. Plus I put a handful of stitches in on pages 4 and 6, because after doing the last few fill in stitches in these colors I still had a lot of the length left over, so carried them over to the new pages. And I am so tempted to start working on these new pages, but I will finish page 5 first. I'm getting closer! I sure hope I can get the other pages finished in under 9 months like this one has taken me so far!!! I think by the time I'm done with this page I will be closer to 10 months in working on it!! Wow!! Well I will be back in 5 days to show you a new start! Joyful stitching all!!
