5 B'day Projects and some progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I didn't have much to show last week that's why I didn't post.  It makes me so sad that blogland is disappearing.  The first thing I do in the morning is read blogs.  I use to have 40 - 50 blogs a day to read.  I loved it.  It was my escape to the outside world.  Now, on a good day I might have 10 - 15.  I use to get 200 views on a post now I'm lucky if I get 50.  I will continue as a way to keep a record for myself and hope my computer doesn't crash.  Enough of the pity party.

I worked on 5 more birthday projects which makes me very excited.  I really might make it to 70 this year.

24.  Dear Santa, I Can Explain - Lizzie Kate

25.  Alice - AvroraCS

26.  Frozen - AvroraCS

27.  Ice Cream - Lizzie Kate

28.  Garden Cat - Satsuma Street

I am so loving the facebook group School of Magical Stitches and Literature.  It is such a fun group and the admins - Vickie and Kate are awesome.  The challenges are amazing.  I don't know when they find time to stitch.  There is weekly homework, monthly extra credit and ultimate for the year for both stitching and reading.  You don't have to be a Harry Potter fan (like me).  This is the only reason I will be able to do my birthday challenge.  You can do one or all or skip a month.  Whatever there is no pressure.  Go check out the group you might like it.  It sure motivates you to pull out those old WIP's and UFO's.

I also worked on Cars for the above challenge.  I'm going to be using it for 3 more challenges and hope to get it finished.  I know it looks close but there are still about 2500 - 3000 stitches left.  All those white stitches.  YUCK!


I also made a little more progress on Pretty Little New York by Satsuma Street.

3 B'day projects with 2 finishes

Hi Blogger Friends.  As always, thanks for all of the sweet comments.

Finish 7 - B'day WIP 22

B'day WIP 23 - Pretty Little San Francisco by Satsuma Street (I had to rip that stupid purple section out twice cause I guess I can't count anymore,)

Progress on Cars.

Progress on Queen of Hearts.

I honestly thought I would be putting in one stitch on 40 projects in December so I could say that I worked on 70 UFO's/WIP's this year.  I am shocked that I have worked on 23 already.  I am so loving the School of Magical Stitches FB group.  My dumb brain had a really dumb thought the other day.  Maybe I could get 70 finishes this year.  Right.  I'm just sitting here laughing at myself.

Gotta go stitch and watch a Harry Potter movie for a challenge.

3 B'day projects

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments.

Well, I have changed my stitching plans again.  I left most of my FB groups that had stitching challenges.  I was getting very stressed out and have had a nasty stress headache for many months.  I wasn't enjoying my stitching anymore and it just felt like work.  I did stay in the School of Magical Stitches and Literature group and loving it.  I worked on 3 UFO's this week which makes a total of 20 for my birthday challenge.

18.  Lizzie Kate
Halloween Rules - Lizzie Kate
14ct natural brown aida
started
finished 2-13-19
19.  Happy Halloween - Satsuma Street

20.  Leaf - Bent Creek

We live at about the 1000' elevation in the sierra Nevada foothills.  Woke up to snow last Monday morning and was just starting to stick this morning but quit.  This was last Monday.


I borrowed these pics from a blog (with permission) and she found them on Pinterest.
