February Just Nan Stitching progress for the SAL

I was still sick for most of the beginning of the month so I didn’t get this finished.  I have 6 more bands to do. I will get them done for March’s progress picture! 



This is as far as I got – through Band 8Image

This is the bottom half.  I have this bottom row really wrong somewhere and I didn’t even notice until I tried to fit in the eyelet stitches.  Only 1 of the eyelets is done correctly and in the correct spot.  I figure once it is on the wall and hanging – nobody but an experience stitcher will ever be able to tell the eyelets are all so very screwed up! LOL!

WIPocalypse November Check-in

I am getting really bad at remembering this!  I actually think I have quite a few finishes this time. 


This is X’s and Oh’s Wine Dragon (white).  I did this for a friend of mine that owns a wine shop.


This is my daughter’s 1st Christmas present.  She picked out a bunch of patterns from the Subversive Cross Stitch book for me to do.


This is my daughter’s Caitlin’s second Christmas present. I am a terrible sewer. This is after I ripped it apart and did it all over.  It just wouldn’t work.  I told her one of her gifts is wonky.


This is my son’s Kenny’s Christmas present. I had started Ink Circles 99 this year for his Christmas present but it is no where close to being done.  So I took several of the bottles and made him coasters to match it when I FINALLY get it done!


This is my husband’s no. 1 Christmas present – framed.


This is my husband’s second Christmas present – finished.

Then I also did some additional framing of 2 things I have had done for a while now.  One of them, several years!


This one is a more recent finish but I got it framed in the same year I finished it!


I have just beads to go on Joan Elliot’s Petite Angel (wreath) that was a SAL on Polstitches Fabric Facebook page.  So I will even have a finish for the final update of the year!

Everyone have a wonderful week!




QS Siberian Forest Progress

I was away this past weekend – the 5th through the 7th at a stitching get together with one of my groups on Facebook.  I worked on nothing but QS Siberian Forest!
Here is where I started:

Here is where I ended on Friday night – I sent a picture to my husband so I have one!

Here is where I ended at the end of the weekend Sunday afternoon!

Now I just have to figure out how to get two of these pictures from here to the HAED SAL BB.  With Webshots I knew how but now with this I don’t have a clue!!

Both Multiply and Webshots going away in December – not good!  That is where all my pictures are stored!


WIPocalypse 2012 – August 31st – QS Siberian Forest progress

I have stitched all day yesterday and all day today!  For the amount of time versus progress – it is kind of depressing but he is so gorgeous!  The first 10 X 10 square I did today had 40 different colors in it.  Even with parking it took FOREVER!  LOL!

Here is where I started yesterday:


And here is where I ended this evening.  I was going to switch to Christmas stitching tomorrow since Scott leaves for filming his buddies bear hunting. He will be gone through the weekend.  But now, I sort of want to finish these last two 10 X 10 squares so I can see the whole eye!!


We will see how I feel after work tomorrow!

Siberian Forest – after parking

Wow, I got to stitch for several hours today! I am beginning to see with my work schedule I am going to be lucky to see 2 hours of stitching all week.  But today was a good day, my MIL visited but only stayed a few minutes so I got to keep stitching!

Ok first picture is where I started –


Second picture is where I ended on the 19th!


I am loving this parking stuff now that I have the hang of it!  Probably won’t stitch again until next weekend!  Boo!
