July Smalls SAL

Hi Blogger Friends. It's the last Wednesday of the month and time for the Smalls SAL.  This is being hosted by Heather of Stitching Lotus.  We pick a small project to stitch on and post a finished picture on the last Wednesday of the month.
Are you all sitting down??  I finally finished Santa's 12 Days of Christmas by Prairie Schooler.  Day 12 took me 4 days and the other 11 took 2 years and 7 months.

July Gifted Gorgeousness and TUSAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  We all have projects that have been gifted to us or pieces that we are doing as gifts.   This SAL is so we can work on those and post on the 15th.
Pretty Mini Paris by Satsuma Street.  The magazine was gifted to me by our awesome hostess Jo.  I have finished all of the stitching from the Eiffel Tower over.  I should get this one done in the next month.



This is where we save our (ORTS) or floss and yarn ends and post a picture of them on the New Moon.  This is being hosted by Sharon of It's Daffycat.  Don't tell anybody, but Kate and I are up to 12 different projects for the April challenge next year.  I have been doing more crocheting than cross stitching the last couple weeks.



I'll leave you with a picture of Mocha and ?  (I think its Smeegol.)

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Finally an Update

HAPPY 4th OF JULY

Hi Blogger Friends.  I hope you all had an enjoyable day and ate lots of BBQ.  We had ours yesterday.  We had BBQ'd Kona tri-tip and BBQ baked potatoes and BBQ corn on the cob.  It was so yummy.

I have been doing a little stitching, a little crocheting and a-l-o-t of playing in my yarn.  I am absolutely obsessed with variegated yarn.  Especially Red Heart Super Saver.  I have 97 different colors.  I have some that is 43 years old.  I am doing 4 crochet blankets for the A-Z challenge next year along with 4 different cross stitch themes.  So I HAVE started working on them this year.  Wish me luck.

Cinderella's Castle - I did about 750 stitches in 4 days.
