I so love this SAL and am already thinking about 10 projects for next year.  I would really like to get all of these done this year (except Disney) that's going to take me a hundred years.
I'm also doing the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015.  I will be starting 31 projects in January and would sure like to get some done by the end of the year.

Thanks for looking.     I really appreciate your comments.     Linda

Start #34 and Updates

Hi Blogger Friends.  I can't believe that I have only started 3 pieces besides my January starts.  Sometimes I really do scare myself.  LOL   I have to finish working on my 10 Turtle Trot pieces to post on the 10th.  Then my MIL called and told me she was having a baby shower for her granddaughter on the 23rd.  So now I have to get a baby blanket crocheted by then but I just wanna stitch.

Start 34 - Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Day 8 by Prairie Schooler.  I love this cow and he was so fun to stitch.

Fall Welcome - Diane Arthurs - I stitched the box on the bottom and did more on the border.

Cut-thru Steam Train - Bothy Threads - This is my new Monday SAL piece.  I worked on the roof of the cab.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

August YOTA SAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's time for the Year of the Acronym SAL.  You pick a UFO to work on and post a before and after pic the first Saturday of the month.  This is being hosted by Pull The Other Thread and you can read all about it HERE.
This is Bothy Threads cut-thru North Pole House.  I actually got a little done on it by stitching Thursday afternoon and evening.  (I guess that's what happens when you don't have a computer to play on.)  LOL
I started the Christmas Tree and whatever that red and blue thing is.  I also finished the white in Santa's bedroom.

Linda's July Small's SAL and TUSAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  I'm a few days late with my stitch a long postings.  My computer decided to almost quit working.  I was getting ad pop ups on every blog I read including mine.  Then on Wednesday I started getting messages from Norton that the blog contained something?? and would shut it down - including mine.  I  think that Norton Anti Virus bites big time.  We had 96 viruses plus a bunch of other stuff.  Took it to Staples and now it works like new.

First up is the Small's stitch a long being hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus.  You can see all of the other stitchers HERE.

Flip It Bit - Lizzie Kate
14ct Summer Khaki Aida

Finished 7-30-14

I also finished another Santa.  Yippee yahoo no more birds to stitch.

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Prairie Schooler
14ct Summer Khaki Aida
Started 4-20-14

It's also time for the Totally Useless Stitch a-long update.  This is being hosted by Sharon of Daffycat blog fame.  You can see stitch alongers HERE.


Be back tomorrow with my YOTA update.  I would like to thank all of you for the encouraging comments.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

OMGosh

Hi Blogger Friends.  I'm sure glad that your all sitting down for this shocker.  I actually finished the Stable today at 2:26 AM.   AND, it only took me 16 months.  I sure hope the Steam Train doesn't take that long. (You can click on any of the pics to enlarge.)







Cut-thru Stable - Bothy Threads
 14ct  Blue Whisper Aida
Started 4-1-13
Finished 7-26-14

I failed the Serial Starter Challenge on FB.  I didn't get Happy Camper by Diane Arthurs quite done.
as of 7-10-14

So I joined another challenge on FB.  It's the old and new challenge.  We pick one old project to try and finish and start a new one and try to finish both by August 27.  I think I have a better chance of getting this one done.


Thanks for looking.   Linda
