Four corners

I have managed to make some progress on Bees Knees (Ink Circles).  It has been ages since I posted a progress picture, this project tends to travel around in my work bag so I can word on it during my commute, lunch etc.

I have all the corners now, and have started working on page two of the middle. Its starting to look like I'm getting somewhere

Journey's end

At long last a post!!

Also a finish

Yesterday I put the last stitches/beads on Fortunate traveller!  The last bit took much longer than I thought it would.

Don't look outside

It is very white outside today.  

It started snowing this morning and expected to still be snowing tomorrow morning.  I am not looking forward to going to work.  

I realized that I didn't blog finishing stretch!  I finished him last weekend.

I have been working on the net on the main border; the top and right side are done.  



I have also managed to get two Red Threads by Rosewood Manor stitched.  I still have to assemble them together - I didn't like the way it was working this morning and took it apart.

February Goals

January has flown by.... I don't know where it went but I currently didn't get as much done as I was hoping.

January Goals


Finish Fortunate traveller - I laugh... it was going so well... stretch still needs a head

Start Canada Sampler by Stitchrovia - barely; just enough to say I did
Start Cougar Kitten (Sue Coleman) by Stitching Studio - yes

Start Merry Ho Ho by Lizzie Kate - yes - this is going to take longer then I thought

Do an ornament - yes

January TUSAL

TUSAL is back!

After not doing TUSAL last year, I decided that I would do it this year.  It was actually yesterday but I didn't get a chance to post last night after I got home.



Most of the orts came from FT

I am hoping to get Stretch done this weekend and do some work in the stash zone.  It is getting really close to being done, I have one more bookcase to straighten and some filing to do.

Having fun is exhausting

This weekend was a wonderful stitching retreat weekend.  
16 stitchers, 3 days, stitching, laughing, eating.  
It's no wonder it was so hard to go to work this morning.

While I was at retreat I started a new project. Clearly I needed a new project (not really)... but this has been calling my name for over a month.  

The fabric is water cress, I decided on green instead of the blue I originally thought I would use.



The pattern is Cougar kitten by The Stitching Studio

And now back to Fortunate traveller - the end is in sight and I want to get it done.
