Week 5/4 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for the nice comments on my last posts.  Faith asked who the Christmas piece was by.  It is Christmas Spirit with Charm by Lizzie Kate.  I made some decent progress this week.

I'm working on Tow Mater for a mini stitching challenge.

When I look at Alice it doesn't seem like I have alot left.  But, when I look at the chart pages it feels like I won't get her done this year.

Still enjoying working on Beauty.

Another 650 stitches on this Alice.

Still doing 2 strands a day on Frozen.  I see an end in sight for the black so I may start doing 3 strands a day.

Week 4/4 progress and a new start

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments.  I had a good stitchy week.  Some pieces better than others.

I finished the black x's on Beauty and started coloring in.


I did 4810 stitches in 24 days on Cars for the bingo challenge.

Alice kinda got ignored this week.

I did my 2 strands a day on Frozen.

New start - Alice by AvroraCS.

Week 3/4 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thanks for the nice comments.  Needless to say my first week stitching plans flew out the window and blew away with the breeze.  New plans coming up next week.

I didn't work much on Alice this week but I did get her hair done.

1193 stitches added to Cars for 6 days and 18 day total 3735  Only 6 days left.  Only 3 sections of red left on Lightning.

I'm down to the bottom of Beauty.  I have 11 roses and the bottom and a little side border left.  I would like to get the black done by Thursday.  I will be starting Alice by AvroraCS on Thursday doing a strand a day.

I worked on Frozen but not everyday.

I finished the Lizzie Kate Christmas piece and will post it for the smalls SAL.

Week 2/4 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I made some pretty good progress this week.

I did 1237 stitches for 6 days and a total of 2542 stitches for 12 days on Cars.

I have finished 9 out of 18 pages on Alice.  The next 3 pages are partly done.  If I do about 200 stitches a day I can get her done by the end of the year.

I've been doing 2 strands of black a day on Beauty and should have the black done in 10-14 days.  Excuse the mess.  It's getting really hard to get the whole piece in one picture.  I have 2 pages left.

1 strand a day on Frozen.  May do 2 a day after Beauty is done.

Sad progress.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Week 1/4 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's nice not to have to think up blog titles.  LOL  I made some progress this week.

I joined in again with the Ultimate Cross Stitch group on FB with their Oct. 1 - 24 bingo.  I love these SAL's.  I get so much stitching done.  1305 stitches for the first 6 days on Cars.

Alice has eyes and I will finish her face today.

I started doing 2 strands of black a day on Beauty and the Beast to try and get the black done this month.

My strand a day on Frozen.

A little progress on my Christmas piece.

A very special THANK YOU to all of you who always leave comments on blog.  They are truly appreciated.
