Dec. TUSAL, 2 Finishes, Stash

Hi Blogger Friends.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with stitchy stash.  I have been buying Christmas stash for the last couple months.  lol

It's time for the Totally Useless Stitch-a-long.  This is being hosted by Sharon of It's Daffycat.  We keep our floss scrapes for the month and post them on the New Moon.  I'm a little late.


I finished 1 lapghan.  I still need to crochet 5 more.  My hair dresser ordered this one.  When I delivered it, another hair dresser ordered one in the same colors.

I finished another Turtle Trot picture.
Dog Lessons for People - Lizzie Kate
14ct Summer Khaki
Started 2-19-12
Finished 12-25-14

My poor old brain is only thinking about cold turkey sandwiches.  It wasn't thinking about the 7 cross stitch SAL's that I joined so it decided to join a crochet a long.  

These are the colors I'm using and its all from stash.  It is being hosted by Kate.

Look at the new stash that the awesome, wonderful Kaye sent me.  Thank you so much Kaye.  I'm looking forward to starting them.  More starts for Jan/Feb.



I will have one more small finish for the year.  A total of 28 finishes.  I wonder if I can beat that next year.

I'll leave you with a picture of Sparky and Missy.  (I changed the new kittens name)  Isn't she getting big?

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Beautiful crocheting and wonderful finish! I need to go through the list of everyone's SALs and decide what I'm going to commit to this year. :)

Lana said...

Wow!!! Congrats on 28 finishes for the year!!! You had a phenomenal stitching year!!! Great finish!

Great finish, Linda and please enjoy all of those patterns. Yes, your darling new kitty is getting very big! You and I are soul sisters as we both keep joining SALs! We are definitely not commitment phobes but commitmentphiles! lol!

Tama said...

Wow, little Missy has gotten big! I love her adorable little patchwork face!
Your finishes are beautiful - I think those colors are gorgeous on your afghan! What pattern is it?
I love that crochet SAL afghan, too - I might have to join that :D

Oh I didn't realize there were also crochet-a-longs in the world as well! o dear. lol. That will be a glorious finish to have. And that Bothy Threads Jane Austen was the first thing I've ever gasped at and thought I NEED THIS, NOW. I think I'd better get off the Internet before I become a danger to myself.

Love your crochet lapghan; the colors are wonderful. Dog Lessons for People looks great. You have plenty to keep you busy and wish you a fantastic year of finishes for 2015.

Emma/Itzy said...

Congrats on another finish and well done for having so many this year!

Enjoy the new stash and i look forward to seeing what you are stitching in the new year :)

Alyssa F said...

Ooh, I LOVE that Jane Austen pattern. Bothy Threads makes such great designs. I just wish my budget had a little more room, since they end up a little spendy in US dollars

Your crochet looks beautiful, it's no wonder you are getting orders off people. I love the colours you used.

Brilliant new stash too. I love those Bah Humbugs (even though I love Christmas!)

Sparky and Missy are gorgeous! They look very cosy together.

Happy New Year!!!

Gorgeous colours in the round crochet blanket.
Kaye really is a most generous person. She must know you were running short of things to stitch...

homeschooljewelrymom said...

You have me beat! I think I'm only doing 6 cross stitch SALs plus the two CALs. Love the stash colors you're using. Congrats on the finish! Love those Lizzie Kate charts; I just picked up a few at my LNS the other day. Ooh, such pretty new charts! Can never have too many. Love the kitties :-)

Preeti said...

Congrats on the lovely finishes!! 7 SALs ? Hats off to you !! Good luck with all of them ! I am sure you will have lots of finishes next year:)

Anne said...

Ooooh that crochet mandala is amazing!! Love the colours and yours will be spectacular. Perhaps I should join hehee. Great charts from Kaye! You'll be busy stitching them in the new year. Have a Happy New Year!

Carol said...

How nice that your pretty crocheted lap blankets are so popular, Linda--they are very pretty (and so useful, too!). What a great bunch of goodies the generous Kaye sent your way--enjoy!!

I've enjoyed following your blog this year and seeing the many, many pieces that you have started/finished--hope 2015 is a great one for you and your family!! Happy New Year :)
