February Progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all the nice comments and confidence remarks.  I really don't think I will ever catch up this year with all the finishes I was hoping to get done but thats okay.

This months progress.

All the black stitches are done.  I did 4739 stitches this month.

Cheshire Cat - I did 3066 stitches this month.

Alice and the Flamingo - now that I have 3 and 1/2 rows of pink done I am feeling a little better about this piece.  Another 4 rows and I can start a tree.

Alice in Wonderland

Stained Glass Ariel - Now that I finished the black on Chip and Dale I am going to do one strand of black a day on this one.  My goal is to finish Chip and Dale by the end of June for the FB SAL and than work on this one.

LHN/CCN series SAL on FB - not doing to good with this challenge

Frozen by Clouds Factory - I added another character

12 Days of Christmas - finished the bird

February Gifted Gorgeousness and Zodiac SAL's and some progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank as always for the nice comments.  I managed to work on all of my projects again this week.  However,  not much progress was made on the smaller ones so I will show those next week.  (I'm obsessed with the big ones especially Chip and Dale.  I am trying to get the black outlining done by the end of the month.)

I'm finally going to post for Jo's GG.  I think you all know what it is all about.
mini San Francisco by Satsuma Street.  Our wonderful hostess gifted me the magazine several years ago.  This is the last of the 3 designs.

I'm also finally posting for Jo's Zodiac SAL.  Aquarius by Satsuma Street.

Not bad for the month.  I am trying to get the outlining done this month.  This is 2 full skeins of black.

I'm having a hard time on Alice and the Flamingo.  I hate all the pink and white sky.  I think I might have to work elsewhere on it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Linda

11 Days of Progrress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments.  They are greatly appreciated and keep me going.

I am so darn proud of myself.  I actually managed to work on every project everyday so far.   5 each day on Saturday and Sunday.  4 each day the rest of the week.  Here is my progress.

Chip and Dale by Avrora CS on Etsy - The black is done on page 1 of 4.  My goal is to get the black done sometime next month and get it colored in by the end of June.  Trying to count the black stitches on this chart is horrible.  I will work on Ariel after this is done but plan on having the black done by than.

Cheshire Cat by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy.  I would love to get this one done and work on Jane Eyre.

Alice in Wonderland by DoNa Stitch on Etsy - weekend SAL with Kate

Alice and the Flamingo by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy -  100 stitches a day SAL with Jo.  As you can see I'm a tad bit behind.  This is the worst chart I have ever worked on.  The scalloped border was a nightmare so I decided to not do it and start over.  I am so much happier with it now.

Main Street Station - LHN

Brave by Clouds Factory

12 Days of Christmas = Day 1 by Satsuma Street

Denver by Tiny Modernist on Etsy

I have almost finished my LK small and will post it the end of month.  I also worked on my GG piece and will post it Thursday.

Thanks for stopping by.    Linda

January GG SAL, Zodiac SAL and challenge progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you all so very much for the kind well wishes.  I'm about 95% better which is about as good as it gets.  Needless to say, being sick, in the hospital and crocheting doesn't make for a productive stitching month.  I did manage 2 goals and worked on 7 others.  First up is crocheting.

This is the baby blanket.  I DID NOT pick the colors.  She said that her brother and SIL love it.

Cheshire Cat by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy.  I managed 3055 stitches in 10 days. FB SAL group.

I added the orange building.  Stitch Maynia FB group SAL.

LHN/CCN SAL group on FB.

2018 Ornament Blog hosted by Kaye.

SAL with Jo.  We are suppose to do 100 stitches a day to have it done by the end of the year.  I started it 1-1-18 and managed 200 stitches.  Alice and the Swan by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy.

SAL group on FB.  Pick one project a month and do at least 1200 stitches.  I did 1221.  I will work on this one each month until done.  Started 1-1-18

This is a weekend SAL with Kate.

Gifted Gorgeousness being hosted by Jo.

Pneumonia, Bronchitis, influenza A and B

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments on my last post.  Needless to say I didn't do an update on Monday.  In stead I spent the last 6 days in the hospital with the above illness'.  I came home yesterday afternoon and am doing much better.  I figured I would get behind in my stitching this month but not from being sick but I'm also behind now in my crocheting.

I hope to be back Monday with a stitching update.

Finish 19 and 2018 plans

Hi Blogger Friends.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of stitchy stash from Santa.  I bought myself 17 charts from 123 Stitch.  (Cause ya know I don't have enough.) lol

Finish 19

14ct white aida
Started 2-11-17

I didn't do as good as last year with the finishes but better than I thought.  In my defense I have crocheted 4 afghans, 1 toddler and 5 baby blankets.  I'm still working on a baby blanket and 2 afghans.

I am going to try and explain my monthly stitching plans for 2018 so they make sense.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are sorts free days.  More likely to play catch up on the challenges.

Thursday - Little House/Country Cottage Needleworks - FB SAL group.  You pick a series from either designer and stitch on one a month.   I will be doing LHN Hometown Holiday and maybe the new Farmhouse series.

Friday - Tiny Modernist - 50 State SAL on Stitch Maynia - I will work on 1 state a month

Saturday - Clouds Factory - Princess SAL on Stitch Maynia - I will work on 1 princess chart a month

Sunday - Lizzie Kate - a Christmas ornament a month for Stitch Maynia - Smalls SAL

Christmas display and almost a finish

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments.  I truly appreciate them. 
Here is this years Christmas display.  Sorry for the not so good pictures.

Mad Hatter my MrsPeggotyArts on Etsy.  10 days of stitching and 3437 stitches later I almost have a finish.  I have about 1300 stitches left.  I WILL finish it this year.

I'm still working on next years stitching schedule.  In fact I bought a planner yesterday.  I will be back with a finish and stitching plans the end of the month.

I want to wish all of you (my friends) a very Merry Christmas.  Hope you all get lots of stitchy presents.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda
