Weekly Stitching

I am very excited to share my stitching this week. I was able to finish all of the wording of the Gettysburg Address. It is my goal to finish the bottom section and the border by the end of March.

I had a small bit of haul this week. It is Lily of the Valley by Nora Corbett with the fabric, threads, and beads. A stitcher had posted it for sale on the 123Stitch message board and I got it all for only $20!! That was a deal I couldn't pass up.

I hope you are all staying warm and enjoying the project you are working on this week!

Weekly Stitching

Welcome to March! I hope the weather is nice where you are. It has been rainy but much warmer here in KY over the past few days. It was wonderful to have the windows open yesterday and let the fresh air in.

I have only worked on 272 Words this past week. Here is where I was at when I started this week.

This is where I stopped last night. It is my goal to finish this by the end of March. I am on the last three lines of wording and I only have left the info about the Gettysburg Address at the bottom and the border around the entire piece.

I also had a big surprise this week. My Millenium Frame arrived!! I ordered it on September 16, 2016 and it finally made its way to me. I am very excited about getting it but very disappointed in the quality of their customer service as I had to email and call several times and had been told it was shipped two months ago,even though it was only shipped a week ago. So, I am hoping it will be worth the wait and hassle of trying to get it. Do any of you have one? What do you think of it?

Weekly Stitching

Good Morning everyone! I am glad to be back today and all the moving is almost done. We had planned on getting the remaining items moved over the weekend but my husband was a bit under the weather so it will wait until next Saturday. However, I was able to get quite a bit of stitching in over the weekend and I am so glad. It was nice to relax and watch netflix and flosstube while stitching for many hours. So, I will get started here showing what I worked on.

I had started the 4th ornament in the Brooke's Books Advent Animals and I am almost finished. I only need to stitch the border.

This is a picture of 272 Words the last time I posted a pic of it.

This picture shows the progress I made this past weekend.

I also worked on the Giant Harry Potter by CloudsFactory. The first picture shows the small start I had posted the last time.

This picture shows my progress. I do have to frog out the last blue motif on the right side. I was frustrated so just put it away yesterday and will rip out the next time I pick it up.

I do have a small amount of haul but failed to take pictures so I will get that up later this week. A stitcher had posted on one of the facebook stitch groups a couple of weeks ago about having found magnetic boards at Target for $3. After work that day, I ran to our local Target but they did not have them. My mom was able to find them at hers, so I had her to get me two of them. I added some of my needleminders to one of them over the weekend. I should be able to fill up both of them by the time I unpack all of my minders. I had been looking around for awhile and was so excited to learn about these. I think I might wish I had purchased a couple more.

What have you been stitching on? And how do you display your needleminders? I hope you all have a great stitchy week.

We are in the process of moving so there hasn't been much stitching going on. I did finish this ornament, the #3 of Brooke's Books Advent Animals. We should have all in the new house by the end of the week so tons of stitching will commence after that! I hope you are all having a great February.

Hello everyone! I hope your February is off to a great start.

I am almost finished with number 3 in Brooke's Books Advent Animals.

I started a new project this month for the Harry Potter SAL on a facebook group. My friend Cindi and I joined together and are cheering each other on. I don't have much done on it so far. This is the Giant Harry Potter by CloudsFactory.

I don't have much to show this week as my husband and I are moving. We are in the middle of packing and getting all ready to go. I must say that I hate packing and I hope we never decide to do this again. Happy Stitching!

The first picture is the one that I had posted the last time.

I stitched on 272 Words for the first time in a couple of weeks and very pleased with my progress.

I also worked on Save the Stitches.

It is really hard to get going today. I think all the rain and dreary weather just has me moving slow. I have had my coffee and hopefully it will kick in soon. I hope you all had a great stitchy weekend.

I worked on Save the Stitches over the weekend. Some of the work isn't exactly like the pattern as I am doing it on aida and some of the stitches work much better for linen. So, I have changed a little of it.

I started a new project on the 17th for the Year of Starts with Stitch Maynia on facebook.

It will look like this once completed.

I have a mini finish!!

I hope you all have a great week!
