We Interrupt the Alphabet Rotation

I've been plugging away at my alphabet rotation and I realized that I haven't had a new start in months!  EEK!!!  So I took a short break from my rotation and made four new starts yesterday.  Here they are.....

By Joan Elliott

 I love the colors in this one.  Joan Elliott is one of my favorite designers.

By:  Barbara Cooley

I think this one is so adorable and I'm hoping to have it done by this Christmas.

Another adorable one!  This one isn't too big so I should be able to finish it in time for Christmas.

By:  Design Works

This one was a gift from Chelle.  Isn't it just adorable? I love it and can't wait to see it finished.

Sometimes you just need to have a new start, or four!  I feel so much better now!

Now it's back to my alphabet rotation.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend filled with lots of stitching!

Bad Blogger!!

I have been such a bad blogger and bad commenter lately!  Life has been so busy for me that I just haven't had the time or the energy to post.  I've been spending long hours at work and by the time I come home, cook dinner, do a few things around the house I'm just too tired to do much of anything else.  My stitching has even been suffering!  Things are finally starting to calm down at work (for now), so things should start to get back to normal soon.

I'm still plugging away with my alphabet rotation.  Here are three more.

Not a whole lot of progress, but some is better than none!

It's suppose to be a beautiful day here in Ohio so I'm hoping to get outside and enjoy some of the sunshine!  Hope the weather is perfect wherever you may be!

Happy Stitching!

Time To Catch Up!

Boy do I have a lot of catching up to do!  I don't know how I fell so far behind but it's time to get this blog back on track!  First up is my Ornament of the Month which I'm late posting, but better late then never, right?

 Next is my progress on my Halloween House SAL

By:  Ursula Michael

And the most exciting thing to happen this week I won the giveaway that Shelly was having on her blog for her belated birthday giveaway!  Look at what she sent me!!

What a great giveaway!  I can't wait to stitch up that chart by Little House Needleworks, it's just so adorable!! Thank you so much Shelly!!

To finish my catch up is the next chart in my alphabetical rotation.

There, I'm all caught up, now let's hope I stay that way!

Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Easter!!!

Another O and a P

For the first time in a very long time I didn't do any stitching on a Friday night!  I was wiped out from a very long and busy work week so my hubby took me out to dinner and a few drinks.  Very relaxing.  But a few drinks and stitching just don't mix so I didn't get any work in on my Halloween House SAL piece.  I'm going to try and work on it a bit today.

Next up in my alphabetical rotation.....

By:  Diane Arthurs

I just love all of Diane Arthurs designs, they are so fun and easy to stitch!  I have to order more of her charts soon!

By:  Debbie Mumm

This has been in my WIP pile for a long time (since 2009!) I hope to finish it this year.  I love anything with a scarecrow!

My housework is calling me so the sooner I get it done, the sooner I can stitch!

Have a great Saturday everyone and Happy Stitching!

SAL Update & Two "O" Charts

It's suppose to be a beautiful day here in Ohio, in the upper 50's!!  I am sooo ready for spring to get here that I can hardly stand it; I'm suffering from a bad case of cabin fever!

I worked on my Halloween House SAL
on Friday night and here is where I'm at.

By:  Ursula Michael

My progress has been slow and steady, but that's better than no progress at all!

Here are the next two charts in my alphabet stitching.

By:  Waxing Moon Designs

These are really so much fun to stitch.  Linda, I have been stitching all of these on 14 count Oatmeal Aida.

And another "O" chart.

By:  Lesley Teare

I just love the colors in this one and I can't wait to get her finished.

Today is laundry day so I'm off to get that started, and of course everyday is a stitching day so I will be doing some of that too!

Enjoy your Sunday everyone and Happy Stitching!

I don't know how I did it, but somehow I missed posting one of my "M" charts so here is one more M.

Thanks for pointing that out Linda!

SAL Update and my N Charts

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my first ornament, they will keep me motivated into stitching my second one!

I managed to stitch on my Halloween House SAL on Friday night.  Here is my progress.

By:  Ursula Michael

I haven't had time to do an alphabetical recap of all the WIP's I've stitched on so far, but here are my N charts.

By:  Joan Elliott

By:  Waxing Moon Designs

If I can't find the time, the recap may have to wait until I'm finished

I'm up way too early for a Sunday, but since I am I may as well get some stitching in!

Have a great Sunday everyone and Happy Stitching!
