August Small's 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.

I only have 6 more of these to do.

August Gifted Georgeouness 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 stitched the windmill.


TUSAL 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 14 different projects for the April challenge next year.  I have been doing more crocheting than cross stitching the last couple weeks.

Look at the RAK with all its lovely gifts.  This was received from the super duper Kaye of Kitten Stitching.
Isn't that an awesome nail file?



Thanks for looking.  Linda

Crocheting and a little Stitching

Hi Blogger Friends.  I would like to thank all of you for visiting my blog and leaving such awesome comments.  I really enjoy reading them and they are truly appreciated.  (I did want to mention that I am still leaving comments on your blogs but your not getting an email from me.)  As the title says, I have been doing a lot of crocheting and very little stitching.  It seems like every summer I get in a stitching slump.

Australia by Clouds Factory

Pretty Little London by Satsuma Street.  I did the blue on the ferris wheel.

Cinderella's Castle - I did make some good progress on this one in 3 days.

Tama had asked to see some of my variegated yarn.  This is 30 different colors.  I have about 80 more.  (I have been collecting yarn since 1972 when I taught myself to crochet.)

These are squares for 2 afghans.  I only need to make 219 more.

These will become squares for 2 more afghans.  I only need 170 more.  (Circle 1, 2 and 4 on the bottom row are from yarn bought in the 70's.)

These are squares for 4 more afghans.  I need 24 more top squares, 7 more of the one on the left and 109 of the one on the right.  See those little tiny squares on the bottom - I only need 394 more of those.
I only have 2 afghans left to start.

Thanks for looking.  Back to crocheting.   Linda
