Park #2 done!!

I finished 4001 stitches on Mermaid Tales by Heaven and Earth Designs to complete the second park in Tier 1 for the National Park Challenge. 

Here’s what it looked like when I started:

I’m so happy with this progress!! It’s really looking nice!!
For my third park I will be working on Winter Rose. I’m really excited to pull that one out and see what 4000 stitches in on it will look like! 

Hope everyone is staying safe out there. Taking caution where needed and if you’re quarantined, getting lots of stitches in!! 

Thank you for stopping by! Happy stitching!!

The Gaze update

Here’s how it looks today:

Here’s how it looked a month ago:

The ear is filled in and I’ve filled in more of the orange on the right side. It doesn’t look like much, but I put in 578 stitches, so not too bad, every stitch counts. 

Happy stitching everyone! Thank you for stopping by!! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Finally! I finished my first Ornament!

I finally finished this one!! I think I started it last summer. Wow!! It is super cute though. I’m happy with it. 

So, onto my next one. Seeing as how my goal is to finish 6 ornaments this year, that’s about one every other month, so we’ll see if I can get the next one done by the end of April.

March Goals

I’m hoping that I’ll see a lot of stitching this month. I’d really like to see me hit ALL my goals, not just the ones I set for my group challenges. I’ve missed the mark by quite a bit on my smaller pieces the past 2 months. So, I’m hoping to get caught up. So, what do I hope to get accomplished this month?

1. Mermaid Tale 1829 stitches (this will complete park #2 in my National Park Challenge)
2. Winter Rose  1100 stitches (the start of park #3)
3. The Gaze  1705 stitches (for the 20 in 20 challenge)
4. Spring Quilt 650 stitches
5. Ornaments Finish Moose Ornie and start a new one(total 550 stitches)

I’m really hoping to put a more concentrated effort on reaching the goals for my ornaments and Quilt piece. We’ll see how this goes!

Hope March is a super stitchy month for you. Thank you for stopping by! See yah here again soon!

February Wrap Up

I think that February was a pretty productive month. I could have done better, but I did what I could. 
So what DID I get done? 
I put in 2,171 stitches on this: 

I put in119 stitches on this:

I put in 1,671 stitches on this:

And I put in 200 stitches on this:

And not pictured here is my Emerald Forest piece but I put in 669 stitches on it. So...a grand total of 4,830 stitches overall for the month! And while I didn’t reach some of my individual piece goals I’m still happy with that number. I fell way short on my goals for my Quilt piece and Ornament, but I’m right on track with my Full Coverage challenge pieces. 
So! A very fun productive month, I’d say! 
Thank you for stopping by, and for all your lovely comments! See yah again soon for my March goals post.
