So Many Stitches a Week - Week 17

Hi Blogger Friends.  I managed my 2150 stitches again this week.  Actually I did a few more than that.  I sometimes have a hard time stopping.

Sweet Spring

Dog Park

Garden Cat

Pretty Little New York

The Mad Hatter

Jane Eyre

Cheshire Cat

I have a couple gals that are going to join me next year and a few maybes.  Who else is going to join our So Many Stitches a Week craziness?  You can do 1 day a week or like me 7 projects a week.  It really is a lot of fun and I find that I am getting a whole lot more stitching done and I'm not stressed.  Pick one of those projects that you love and want to finish but hate working on.  You just might get it finished next year if you join us.

On a side note.  My Mom passed away 23 years ago on the 23rd.  I was thinking a lot about her this week.  One thing made me giggle for days.  I'm sure a lot of us had nicknames when we were growing up.  My Mom either called me SKUNK or TURDBIRD.  All I can say is I must have been a really smelly kid.  What was your nickname?

Thank you for all of the nice comments.  I so enjoy reading them.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

I didn't have such a colorful nickname as you but I was called Shel or Shelly bell! Great progress on everything. I can see how Stitches in a week is working for you. You just may have some finishes all at the same time!

I was called Grace because I was so clumsy. What is your So Many Stitches a Week? I would be interested....

Great progress on your projects, Linda!! I don't remember I had any nicknames in childhood but, after marriage, my hubby has lovingly called me with various nicknames :D

Mii Stitch said...

No nickname for me, just Ingrid :)
This system definitely seems to be working for you. You're making great steady progress on your various projects!

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

Great work on all your projects. I am in for the Challenge, in fact I'm doing 30 a day already as you know.
My dad used to call both me and my sister Fanny-ella for some reason. My Nana called us by the opposite names, but at least we got a human name, she called my brother Snowy who was the cat!

Great progress on everything and I'm looking forward to working on So Many Stitches next year. I have a lot of things I'd like to finish. :) My Grandpa used to call me Tiff-a-lily and my Grandma sometimes still calls me Tiffy. :) Nothing as creative as yours though.

Garden Cat is really coming along and I LOVE the Mad Hatter!

I don't think I had a nickname :/ It is hard to get something out of Faith but my dad called me Faithy but I hated that.

Great progress, Linda. Your new rotation seems to be working really well... and no more new starts! Keep it up! :)

Beth Pearce said...

My brothers called me Brat or Princess, I wonder why??? LOL At school I was called spider because I was all arms and legs. Now I am called Mom or Grammy or Bethy which I love all of them as they are endearments. Love your rotation. I am hoping to have the house we moved in in December organized enough that I can start stitching again and maybe do a rotation.

They all look wonderful, you have had a busy week!
I have no idea why my Mother called me this, because it certainly wasn't true, but she called me Stinky!

Joanie said...

My Mom always called me Joanie-doll. And my best friend's Dad always called me Twinkletoes cause I was so klutzy!

Linda, you're projects are coming along nicely. The Mad Hatter looks very intriguing. When I was a kid (so long ago...), my nicknames were Cookie and Punkin.

Lovely stitching progress! My mom always called me Pumpkin or Sweet Pea. I guess she likes her vegetables! :D
