New start and week 1 progres

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments.  They mean alot to me.  I have noticed that I have lost alot of my regular commenters.  I'm guessing that maybe they have moved on to FB.  I enjoy doing my blog and really enjoy reading other blogs.  I've noticed that alot of bloggers don't post on their blogs anymore.  I think its a neat way to track my stitching progress.  (When I have some.  LOL)

New Start - It doesn't look much like a Donald yet.

Ariel - So close to finishing the black xs.  I will get it done this month.  I can't decide if I want to start the black on another one or just work on Donald.  Any suggestions??

Chip and Dale.  Still enjoying the coloring in.  So much fun and a no brainer.

Cheshire Cat - He has eyes.  Now he can glare at me while I stab him.

Alice and the Flamingo - I managed to work on her one evening for a couple hours.  I was tired of pink and started the tree.

Thanks for stopping by.    Linda

I'm still kicking

Hi Blogger Friends.  I haven't disappeared completely.  I have been working on 3 large pieces this month.  I have finally realized that I am basically not a FB event stitcher.  I have quit working on all of my small projects.  I get way to stressed out if I don't stitch on each piece every week.  I am really enjoying my big pieces right now and that is all I want to work on.  To make a liar out of myself, there is 3 FB groups that I am doing monthly challenges on and they are the big ones.  My March progress.

Chip and Dale - I added 6222 stitches  (I don't think it looks like that many)  Full Coverage Fanatics

Cheshire Cat - I added 3298 stitches - Ultimate Cross Stitch

Ariel - I added about 2500 stitches

I just joined Ivory Needle Cross Stitch Challenge.  It is to do a new start tomorrow and work on 2 WIP's.  No stitch count.  Just work on them as much as you want.  The challenge is April thru June.  This is my new start.

I also crocheted my last baby blanket this month.  Start to finish in 2 days.

This is why I don't always get alot of stitching done.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

I'd like to wish all of you a very Happy Easter.

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.

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.
