One last post for the year! Winter Rose update!

2017-12-30T20:00:51.526-08:00

I am really pleased with the amount of progress I saw on this one this last month! It really does stitch up quite fast once I pick it up! Well, I guess this is where I say goodbye to 2017, and Hello to 2018!! I hope all my readers had a lovely year, and was able to reach any goals, stitching or otherwise that you may have set for the year. I will be posting a 2017 year end wrap up soon! So.

 As you can see....I got my page finish on page 8 of this one!! I finished it on November 21st, and then continued onto page 9: And here's where I got to on this one. I am STILL LOVING this one SO much! I love the colors, and it's fun, although, I have to admit this last month I have had a bit of frustration with the amount of confetti in this one, it really slows down progress. I'm just glad

I was able to get a bit more done on this piece, although I am sadly WAY behind my schedule I had set out for this one! I started this page on Sept. 11, and this little bit is all I've gotten done in all that time.(the bottom portion on the left) I really need to pull this out and get some serious work in on it, or I won't get it done for  along time yet. the portion I stitched was only about

I was able to finish the first column on page 1 and start the next column. So, not a lot of work but a little, which is better than none, right? I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, and some wintery weather. Stay safe out there! And as always, thank you for stopping by, and also for all your lovely comments!



Progress on my problem child project! Winter Rose...

2017-11-28T05:00:13.708-08:00

Ok! So, I started this project on Sept. 22. I RE-started it on Oct. 29th.   Remember how I said this was a plethora of newness for me? 25 count fabric, 2 over 1 tent stitch, working on q-snaps/hoop? Wellllll....apparently THIS old dog? Cannot learn new tricks! I HATED it, at first! but I pressed on....I was just getting in the groove, working on it at a good clip, when I found a ginormous



Autumn Peace....More progress than most!

2017-11-21T05:00:23.522-08:00

This is my primary focus piece, because I am stitching it as a gift for my mom, so I tend to pick it up almost daily, while the rest of my projects languish in the background crying for my attention. Not only is it a gift for my mom, but I truly DO love working on this one! So, that also probably plays a part in the fact that I have no trouble working on it for the amount that I do every month!

2017-11-14T05:00:09.798-08:00

Wow! I really need to pick this one up more! I should be so much further along! I know! I feel like I say this about every project I post! Oh well, at least I got a little but of work in on it! Thank you for taking your time to look in on my progress! And thank you for all your lovely comments!! Til next time-Joyful stitching!

I have no idea why, but I am having a hard time picking this one up.  I LOVE the fabric, since it's dyed (by me! ) but that's about all I love about it! It's stiff and hard to work with, so I find myself having to really push myself to pick this one up, not to mention that I STILL have not quite figured out how to rotate 4 projects sufficiently to my liking. I'll get there....one of these days,



WHAT is happening?! Another new start?!

2017-10-28T05:00:00.182-07:00

For the most part I like only rotating about 3 projects at a time, since most of my projects are full coverage, I feel the less amount of active WIPs I've got going, the more progress I see on each one. However, I joined the "Full coverage Fanatics" stitching group on Facebook, and Septembers challenge was new starts. I couldn't pass it up! So, I started: Winter Rose By Heaven and Earth Designs



Autumn Peace Update....

2017-10-21T05:00:12.956-07:00

Boy! Crazy confetti! but it's been broken up with large chunks of the black in the trunk of that huge tree, so I go back and forth between confetti heavy parts, and solid black parts, it's coming along.

2017-10-14T05:00:23.474-07:00

I'm working on page 7, now I have less than 2 full pages left to do on this one! I'm getting so excited for a finish!!

I've been plugging away at this one, and it's now a larger blob of  gray! LOL.... Hope you all have a great weekend.  my mom is out visiting us for two weeks, so I doubt much stitching will get done this month, but what can you do? I've considered living in a cave and become a hermit, but...I don't think I'd get enough light in a cave to do the stitching I love to do, do you? LOL



DS2N....I'm on a roll!

2017-09-30T05:00:18.046-07:00

I was able to "finish" this page (page 9) and I now only have two full pages left to finish this piece!! So exciting.  Oh I say "Finished" because there is some white I still need to put in, but I ran out of the color, so for the most part, it IS done, but since I couldn't do anything more, I decided to just move on  to....this: Page 7.  Just a small start, but I'm so excited, this project



Autumn Peace....Update

2017-09-20T05:00:08.493-07:00

I did it! I did it!  I finished page 7!!!!  Look! It's a tree!!! Thank you for reading!! Happy stitching!



A "Give Up" and it's replacement

2017-09-15T12:42:09.285-07:00

So!! I'm late in posting this month, because I've been having computer problems, so sorry about that!  As you can see by my title, I have given up on my ornaments for now. I am just not enjoying them anymore, like I used to.  I find myself struggling to pull them out each month and it's become a chore to me, and since this is a hobby, I decided to not do it anymore. When it becomes a "chore"



DS2N a little progress....

2017-08-30T05:00:23.107-07:00

Oh man, have I still been avoiding this one like the plague....I don't know why!  It's getting better, but I still just never want to pull it out and work on it, even on it's allotted day in my rotation. I was able to finish the first column of the page though, and get a little start on the next one. I would love to have a finish on this page by the next time I post, we'll see how that goes!



Autumn Peace update

2017-08-20T05:00:28.536-07:00

I was able to get just about half of page 7 done, which was my goal, so I'm hoping to have a finish on this one by the next time I post. Lets hope! It seems to be my priority piece lately, it's all I really LOVE working on lately, so it's been getting tons of love, and progress. Thank you for stopping by! Happy Stitching!



I did it!! Less than 24 hours later!

2017-08-12T09:58:32.435-07:00

 It only took me 25 more minutes to finish this little guy after posting yesterday, so I finished it up this morning and thought I'd take a minute and post it! These little guys are so cute! Hope you re all having a great weekend!



Almost made it, but not quite!

2017-08-11T15:25:45.151-07:00

All I have left to do to finish my July ornament, is backstitch, and I would have finished it!  Oh well, close enough! Oh, I also need to finish up the little holly bush on the left hand side.  this is the first time I didn't finish my ornie on time for it's update post! Hoping that won't happen again. I don't know what it was, I just had a hard time pulling this one out. I'm just stuck on



DS2N update

2017-07-31T05:00:18.207-07:00

I was able to get a good chunk of work in on this one, tis time! I finished page 6! (Which was my goal, I'm pretty sure) and have moved down to page 9, I'm almost finished with this first column of the page. I'm starting to enjoy working more on this one, now, as you can see that the color palette has changed from all the light cream/whites of the day angel's wing, to much darker tones, which



Autumn Peace update!

2017-07-30T05:00:12.719-07:00

 I was able to finish page 6 in June ! WOW!  And make a good start on page 7!! This one is the one I most like to work on! I just love all the colors! I pick it up and never want to set it back down!  Which is good, since it's a gift for my mom, and I would like to have it done for her birthday next year....we'll see if that happens.  (Her birthday is the end of April, so still got quite a



a VERY late June ornament fnish!

2017-07-29T04:23:37.553-07:00

I was able to finish this on June 30th, I've just been unable to update my blog this month, just been super busy!! July is usally a busy month for us, as my husbands birthday and our wedding anniversary (12 years this year!) are in July. So, these posts are gonna be late! Sorry!  I'm hoping to stay caught up in August!  Thank you for reading, and have a great day!

2017-06-30T05:00:48.717-07:00

This piece has really been giving me issues. Not in the sense that I'm messing up and needing to frog, or anything like that, but all those light colors in the wing there? They are driving me crazy. I hate stitching light colors on a  light colored fabric, it's annoying, and there's lots of confetti, which I must admit brings in a lot of detail, but it is a Pain in the you know what! So,



Autumn Peace progress!

2017-06-20T05:00:10.002-07:00

Well!! I did it!! I finished page 5 of this monster!!! 5 down,10 more to go!!!  I finished my first row of pages on this, it feels so good!! It took me nearly a year to finish this row. I started it June 1 of 2016 and finished May 28 2017.  I always love page finishes, and row finishes, as it kinda feels like a milestone reached, a little finish, you know? That there is 19,688 stitches done!!



Another little finish!

2017-06-16T04:13:33.380-07:00

I love this little ornament!! I live in the Louisiana Bayous, so we see lots of gators around here.  I think this one will be on my parents Christmas card this year, cause ever since we moved here, lots of times when I talk to my dad on the phone, he asks, "So, you catch yah an alligator yet?" LOL.... I have a good start on the next ornie in line as well.  May was a GREAT stitchy month! My
