Starts 39 - 44 DSDUCJFC and CAL and Gifted Gorgeousness

Hi Blogger Friends.  A big welcome to all of my new followers.  I also want to say a BIG thank you to all of you for leaving me such wonderful comments.  I really do appreciate them.  You all keep me going.

I still have a major problem.  See all the blogs on my sidebar.  I read those everyday if you have made a post.  I comment on about 90% of them.  Of that 90% - I am getting about 85%   "Delivery Status Notification Failure".  My comment goes on your blog post but not to your email.  I am now getting a few that leave me a comment and its not going to my email.  I am so frustrated and I don't know how to fix it.
I just wanted you all to know that I am still commenting on your posts.

I have been doing a new start everyday but am being a slacker about posting them.

Day 39 - Halloween Hoots - Ursula Michael

Day 40 - Happy Haunter - Diane Arthurs

Day 41 - Fantasy Blooms - Ursula Michael  (Another one that isn't my normal liking, but I am going to enjoy stitching this one.)

Day 42 - Autumnal Abstract - Vervaco  (Finished picture courtesy of Rachel.

Day 43 - Create - Living with Charm Flip-Its - Lizzie Kate

Day 44 - Pirates of the Caribbean - On Stranger Tides - Cheeky Shark Labs


Mini Rings of Change being hosted by Kate.  I know I'm behind in this but I don't even know how far.  lol



This is the full size version.  I'm thinking of doing it in color Cornmeal.  You can see the multi version in the lower left.  It has been very enjoyable so far.  You can see a better picture HERE.

I'm 2 parts behind on Sophie's Universe CAL and the next part comes out tomorrow.
My 3rd CAL started Tuesday and I haven't started it yet.  It's by Yarnspirations being hosted by Mikey of the Crochet Crowd.

Look at this awesome project bag that I won from Vonna.  I still can't believe that I won this.  Thank you so much Vonna.  I love it.

GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS  being hosted by Jo.  I'm a day early with this.  You can go to Jo's blog tomorrow and see all the other SALongers.  This is Autumnal Abstract by Vervaco.  I watched Rachel stitching this for quite a while and just loved it.  I was lucky enough to win it when she was done.  There again, not my normal stitching, but I loved working on it.  So I came up with a brilliant idea.  I made 4 working copies.  Now I can stitch one for each season by changing the colors and hanging them differently.  This is stitched like this but Rachel has it hanging horizontally.


I've talked long enough.               HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Thanks for looking.    Linda

Yay Autumnal Abstract! I'm so glad you're doing all the seasons it'll be really fun watching your progress and seeing your changes.

Fantasy Blooms and Create by Lizze Kate stand out to me. Have fun stitching.

Katy said...

Beautiful projects, as always!

diamondc said...

I love all your projects.
That Rings Of Change is beautiful.
I have not been able to email anyone for a long time, the email button just does not work, so I am thinking this is a blogger problem not my own computer, I even tried to email thank-yous from my laptop the same thing, no emails sent.
I hope blogger gets this fixed.

Happy Stitching
Catherine

Tiki said...

It all looks great. Looking forward to seeing more of that abstract.

Mrs Xstitch said...

beautiful projects, love the Lizzie Kate one

Tama said...

Oh, I like those new starts! Especially the flowers - so pretty! I'm behind on my Mini-Rings, too - so easy to slip :D Love the colors you are using!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Proud to be in the 5% that does get emails then!
More great starts and I love your ambition to stitch Rachel's gift not once, but four times! Looking forward to seeing those.

Brigitte said...

Emails of your blog posts don't go through to my mailbox either. And I have had the same problem with some of my comments as well. It's strange.
Nice new starts again, and very ambitious ones. And a beautiful contribution to the SAL.

Kaelyn Angelfoot said...

I love the idea of one version for each season! I've been thinking about doing a set of seasonals but haven't found one that I really like yet.

Margaret said...

Love seeing all your stitching. What a pain about the commenting! I wonder why it happens.

Sarah in Stitches said...

Lovely projects! Don't worry, I haven't been getting your comments by email but I've been seeing them on my blog. Thanks, Linda! :D

Love the new starts, Linda, especially the Halloween Hoots. Your Mini Rings looks great; you're not that behind. In fact, you're right where I am! I've thought about buying the full version and attempting it. You're trying that CAL, too? I've been thinking about it; I downloaded the assignment and keep looking at it. Great idea with the Autumnal Abstract!

Marie said...

I too have been having the same issue with blog comments, ugh! Not sure why this is happening but it drives me crazy.

Wow, so many stitching starts!

Love your GG.

xs88fan said...

Beautiful stitching! I love the Halloween Hoots. I am hoping to get back to mine some time this year. Your CAL is coming along great. I love the colors.

Tiffany Pincombe said...

Great starts and that Vervaco design is awesome!!

Vickie said...

Love all your new starts especially your Halloween ones!

Miamina said...

Gorgeous project folder! You are a very lucky lady :)

Beautiful stitching :) I love the Diane Arthurs one, not seen that before!

sew.darn.quilt said...

Your Halloween charts are too cute! A nice start too!

D1-D2 said...

Captain Jack Sparrow! I really like the colors in Autumnal Abstract

EvalinaMaria said...

Honey, put my name on the Autumnal Abstract. I would love to stitch it when you're done with it.
As for the comments - I think I will replay right on my blog. I know it's so nice to get that email but lately I'm loosing my battle...

Katie said...

Love all your stitching. Sorry you can't find out what's causing the email issue. Hope it goes away soon.

Beth Pearce said...

I have been seeing your new starts now for a couple of weeks, and I think they are amazing. I am really impressed with how you pick all the fabric to stitch them on. I stopped blogging a couple of years ago, but am considering restarting.....

Daniela Linhares said...

Oh my God! You have more WIPs than me!! All of them are precious! I'm from Brasil and will add your blog and follow all your WIPs! Kisses

Barbi said...

Amazing projects you have atarted here! Congratulations on the win for Vonna! That is beautiful. I threw my name in the hat for that one too.

Marcy said...

Lovely projects. Will enjoy watching you stitch the autumnal abstract piece in different colors.

Kaisievic said...

What a clever idea to stitch four versions of Autumn Abstract, Linda.

Rachel Tomkins said...

Love all of your new starts, especially the Halloween Owls and Autumnal Abstract of course! I shall jealously watch as you stitch all four seasons. I may have to find the chart again so that I can join you! As for the crochet ring it must be getting quite heavy and cumbersome by now, let alone trying to do the one pictured!

Ruth said...

Wow, Linda! I am torn between laughing myself silly over can't finish.... and clapping for all your progress--- it's hard to do both at once. :)
