Finally an Update and a RAK

Hi Blogger Friends.  I'm still spending wayyyyy to much time on this stupid computer.  BUT, my husband is finally getting his day shift back at work starting next week.  I'm so excited and I know my crafting is going to get a whole bunch better.
I got a package from Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe the other day.  I know I didn't order anything.  I got a RAK from Evalina.  It came with the floss and bells.  Thank you so much Evalina.  I just love it.

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Prairie Schooler - Day 9    I am about half done with this one.  I have been working on these for 23 months.  I really am getting tired of them.  I would love to finish them by the end of the year.  (Do you notice how I like to dream alot?)

Candy Cane Christmas - Ursula Michael     Now this one is fun to stitch.  I did the candy canes and the CHR.

I also started crocheting a lapghan.  This is the pattern I used for the last baby blanket I made and forgot to take a picture of.  It's a fun quick stitch if I work on it.  I would like to get 3 done by Christmas.  There I go dreaming again.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Linda's Turtle Trot SAL Nov. Update

Hi Blogger Friends.   It's Turtle Trot time.  This is a SAL being hosted by Claudette of BAP Attack.  We pick 10 projects to work on throughout the year and see how many we can finish.  I'm quite pleased with the amount I got done on them this month.  I would love to get them all finished this year except the Disney.  It's going to take 10 years.  (Now I'm hoping to get a couple done by the end of the year.)

1.  Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs - I finished the mitten.

2.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate -  I started building a snowman and then it started melting.

3.  Disney Heroes #16 - Alina's XStitch - I filld in about a 100 holes and it took me 3 hours.

4.  Pretty Little New York - Satsuma Street - I started another building.

5.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - I did the water above her tail.

6.  Dog Lessons for People - Lizzie Kate - I started another row.

7.  Autumn Season - Sandra Cozzolino - I finished autumn.

8.  Spring Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - I finished 4 squares and started a few more.

9.  March Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - I added another strand on the top banner.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Another Sad Day

Morris left us to go be with his ole pal Mr. D.  He will always be in our home and in our hearts.  Most all of my cross stitch pieces have bits of his white hair in them.

RIP  We miss you.

Mega Mini Month Madness - Final Post

Hi Blogger Friends. It's MMMM time.  This is a SAL being hosted by Pull The Other Thread.  You can see all the other SALongers HERE.  We are to work on smalls for the month of October and see how many we can get done.  Yeah!  I managed to get one more done for a total of 6 this month.  Sure wish I could do that every month.  The designs were fun to stitch but I'm really tired of doing the borders.  I'm glad that I'm almost done with this set.

Traveling Treasure Chest

Hi Blogger Friends.  I was the next lucky pirate to receive the Traveling Treasure Chest.  This was started by Kim.  She picked some charts and kits that she no longer wanted and sent them to Teresa.  She picked out a couple and than added some and I was the next lucky pirate.  I picked out 3 and added several more and the next lucky pirate is Shelly.  These are the ones I choice.

As most of you know, I had a Saturday SAL with Debbie.  (There are still about 25 that we were going to be stitching on Saturdays.)  I'm so very happy that 4 wonderful stitching friends have joined me on Saturday. Four of us our working on Candy Cane Christmas by Ursula Michael and one is working on Good Morning.
