Week 11 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for the awesome comments.  Only 2 weeks left for The Ivory Needle FB challenge.  I will have to come up with new post titles after that.  LOL  I have been keeping up with getting a piece to a finish every 3 days for my September birthday challenge.  I now have 5 pieces ready.

Getting there.  It will be done by the end of month.

I added a couple hundred stitches this week.

Still trying to catch up with Jo.   Looking at the before picture does show I made some progress.

This is me in bed.  That is my arm and how 14 month old Charlie sleeps.

Thanks for stopping by.    Linda

Week 10 Progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I am so excited that a few of you will be joining me for my September craziness.  I have decided to attempt to do 30 finishes for the month.  I figure if I get one to a finish every three days I can accomplish the finish a day.  So far I'm on track.  I have 3 to a finish point already.  Kinda scary for me.  I will be doing a start on September 14th which is my birthday.

Dorothy and Toto from MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy.  She gifted me the chart and I just love it.  The background is so different from her other ones and looks like alot of fun to stitch.

I got 2133 stitches done on Alice and the Flamingo in the last six days.  This is like the fifth SAL I've done with Jo and haven't finished one yet.  You can click on her name to see her progress.  She's only 5 months ahead of me.  We have to do about a hundred stitches a day to have it done by the end of the year.  I think I can catch up to her by then.

I'm counting stitches on this one for a FB challenge.  It doesn't have to be done until the end of the month.  Next month I will start coloring in Ariel.

I would like to get the black done on Donald this month but I will have to do at least two strands a day.  Not sure if I will make it.  If I do, I will work the black on Frozen.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Also thank you for all of the nice comments.

Finish #4 and Week 9 Progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Yeah!!!  A finish.

Cheshire Cat - MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy
14ct white aida
Started 4-12-17
Finished 5-31-18

I made a tad bit of progress on these after Cheshire was finished.

This is Alice and the Flamingo and is replacing Cheshire.

My birthday is in September and I have some stitching ideas.  I'm older than dirt so I won't do that many starts, but here are my ideas.
1. Do a start a day.
2. Do a finish a day. (I figure if I work on 30 smalls for the next 3 months and get them to just needing a couple hours each to finish I could finish one a day.
3. Alternate with one start and one finish for the month.
Anybody want to join me?

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Week 7 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I'm so happy that a few of you still stop by and say hi.  Thank you for that.

No Surprise.  I fizzled out on Stitch Maynia.  Will I ever learn???

I finally finished the black on Ariel.  She will be my next coloring in project when I finish Chip and Dale.

I did work on a few more Lizzie Kate pieces before I gave up.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Week 6 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I made a little progress on some and lots on Chip and Dale.

For the Ultimate Springo Bingo challenge I did 7112 stitches in 30 days.

I did a little on the bottom left border so I could say I worked on it this week.

I did one strand last night to say I worked on it.

Stitch Maynia days 3 - 6

Thanks for stopping by and for all the nice comments.    Linda

THANK YOU and Week 4 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the prayers, hugs and happy thoughts.  They Worked.  I don't have cancer.  He thinks the lymph nodes are enlarged from when I was so sick in January.  But. my kidneys aren't working properly right now so I have to go see another doctor.  I guess this is what happens to me because I have been doing great for the last 4 years.  Hopefully I get all my health issues over with this year and can be healthy again for the next 4 years,

I haven't worked on to much this past week.  Here is my little update.

I did get 3031 stitches done last month.  I had hoped to finish him this month but I don't think I will.  I still have about 7000 stitches.

I managed 4897 stitches last month and hope to get it finished this month.

I didn't get Ariel done but did manage a couple hundred stitches.  She will be done sooner rather than later.

Of course, I decided I needed to do Stitch Maynia this month.  I plan on working on a different Lizzie Kate UFO each day for 2 hours.  BUT, haven't started yet.  Story of my life.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda
