So Many Stitches a Week - Week 15

Hi Blogger Friends.   HAPPY EASTER

I was able to meet my goals on all of my projects again this week.  I am so enjoying working on these.  I have got 3 picked out so far for next year.  I did have to put Pretty Little Barcelona back in the UFO bin.  I really hate stitching with light colors on light fabric.  It was hard to count the stitches and I just wasn't enjoying working on it.  Can you guess what I started??

I got tired of working on critters so I stitched some flowers.

Sweet Spring

Dog Park

Garden Cat

Pretty Little New York

The Mad Hatter

Jane Eyre

The Cheshire Cat  (Did you guess right?)

Thank you as always for the nice comments.  There are a couple gals joining me next year in my wonderful craziness.  Does anyone else want to join us?

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

So Many Stitches a Week - Week 13

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thanks for all of the comments on my last posts or for just stopping by.  I did work on all of my projects this week.

Sweet Spring

Dog Park

Garden Cat

Pretty Little New York

Pretty Little Barcelona

The Mad Hatter

Jane Eyre - I didn't progress to far on her.  I think I spent to much time goofing off.
I heard from Betta from MrsPeggotyArts on Etsy.  She said the software she uses wouldn't allow her to change it.  She said to just leave a column off of the left side.  With the top and bottom borders being 4 rows I felt the sides should also be 4 rows so I just added a row on the right.

She also did the nicest thing.  This will be my gifted gorgeousness next year if not later this year.


Dear Linda,
By the way I've just send you Marie Antoinette pattern via WeTransfer to thank you for your purchases and collaboration! Your support is very precious for me:) 
Thanks

IS ANYBODY INTERESTED IN DOING A CASUAL "SO MANY STITCHES A WEEK" SAL NEXT YEAR?  If so, please let me know in your comments.

March Gifted Gorgeousness and Smalls SAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS is bein 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.  The magazine was gifted to me by our wonderful hostess.  This is  mini London by Satsuma Street.  I stitched the section to the right of the clock.


It's the last Friday of the month and time for the Smalls SAL post.  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 Friday of the month.  These were going to be for the April A - Z challenge.

After taking the pictures of these today it sure makes me want to work on smalls and Clouds Factory characters.  I'm still not very organized with my stitching time yet.  (I am retired and have all day.)  I tend to daydream alot and play on this stupid computer instead of being productive.  I PLAN on changing all that next month.

See you Sunday with progress pics.

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you again for the nice comments.  I'll get right to my progress pictures.

Sweet Spring by Satsuma Street

Dog Park by Satsuma Street

Garden Cat by Satsuma Street

Pretty Little New York by Satsuma Street

Pretty Little Barcelona by Satsuma Street

The Mad Hatter by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy - Oh darn, I finally caught up.  I only get to do 80 stitches a day now.  I'm not sure that I'll be able to stop.

Start 33 - Jane Eyre by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy - I noticed when I started that the left side of the border is 4 stitches wide and the right side is only 3 stitches wide.  I wrote to the designer but haven't heard back yet.

So Many Stitches a Week - Week 11

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all the nice comments and votes on my last post.  I also asked for votes on the Stitch Maynia facebook group.  Mr. Darcy started way ahead than Jane passed him up and won by 2 votes.  Some gals just said Jane and some Jane Eyre.  No one said Jane Austin.  I should be able to start Jane Eyre next week.

I am already thinking about projects for next year.  As you can see by the title I will be calling it "So Many Stitches a Week".  A different project Sunday through Saturday.  Mr Darcy will be my January 1 start and one of the projects.

For this years pieces I roughly counted the total number of stitches I have left on each one and divided by 41 weeks left in the year to see how many stitches I have to do per week to get each one done by the end of the year.  This are done through week 11.  I will tell you on each one below.

Sweet Spring by Satsuma Street - 70 stitches per week

Dog Park by Satsuma Street - 125 stitches per week

Garden Cat by Satsuma Street - 110 stitches per week

Pretty Little New York by Satsuma Street - 70 stitches per week

Pretty Little Barcelona by Satsuma Street - 205 stitches per week

The Mad Hatter by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy - 80 stitches per day - His hat is taking shape.
 I did 1369 stitches for a total of 5605 stitches.  I only have to do 1115 this week to be caught up.

I am really enjoying working on The Mad Hatter and will be very sad when I get him caught up.  Then I will be happy because I will start Jane Eyre and get to work on her in the evenings until she is caught up and will be sad again.  Then I will get happy again because I will start another one.  She told me she is going to be working on the Wizard of Oz characters.  I am trying to convince her to do Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Thanks for stopping by.  Linda

Ten-a-day Week 10

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for the nice comments.  I have the second and half the third ten-a-day projects up to date.

Sweet Spring by Satsuma Street - Week 10

Dog Park by Satsuma Street - Weeks 1 - 10

The Mad Hatter by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy - I did 1711 stitches this week for a total of 4236 stitches.  If I can do that many stitches each week I should have it caught up in a couple of weeks.

I have taken out Mermaid Myrna from the ten-a-day projects.  I really didn't want to work on it.  I am really enjoying working on The Mad Hatter.  It makes for good progress while TV watching.  So I have decided to start one of the following as my seventh project.  BUT, I need your help again.  Please leave a comment with your choice of which one I should do.
