Week 7 part 3 progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I made some decent progress this week.

Most excited - finished the black on Donald.  For the 26 day FB challenge I did 6854 stitches.

Almost half done with the black on Cars.

Keeping up with my strand a day on Beauty and the Beast.

Made some decent progress on Alice.

I have to prep today for a procedure tomorrow and will be spending a lot of time in the bathroom.  I don't know how much stitching I'll be able to do. 

I have 16 pieces to a finish for my September plans.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Week 5 part 3 Progress - new start - baby blanket

Hi Blogger Friends.  I am so thrilled with all of the awesome comments you all left this week.  Thank you so much.

 I only managed to stitch on Donald this week.  In the last 10 days I did 2631 stitches.  So far for this challenge in 15 days (I'm 5 days behind) I have done 3784 stitches.  I could actually get these big pieces done in months instead of years.

I started another stained glass piece.  This is a SAL with Kate (she doesn't blog anymore).  We are going to do 1 strand a day or about 90 stitches.  We started Friday and so far I'm keeping up.  lol

I got the baby blanket crocheted in 5 days.  I'm so glad its done.

We won't talk about progress on my September small finishes for my birthday.  Looks like I'm going to be doing a lot of starts.

Thanks for stopping by.     Linda

Week 4 part 3 Progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thanks again for the nice comments.  I'm not getting emails again when you comment.  Don't know why.  I did get some stitching done this week but, this heat is really kicking me in the rear.  I just can't handle it.  I sit in the house and sweat like a stuffed pig.  Hopefully only 1 more month of this 100+ heat.  Also. I got an order for another baby blanket to crochet.  The last thing I want to be doing in this heat.  Here is my progress for the week.

I did 3188 stitches this month.

I made some decent progress on Alice this week.  I'm down to the eye and beak of the flamingo on the right side and getting close to her arm on the left side.


I'm using Donald for a month long counting challenge on Facebook.  I did 1153 stitches in 5 days.

I even managed about 760 stitches in Cars this week.

Week 12 Progress



Hi Blogger Friends.  Thanks as always for the nice comments.

I joined Jo for her Longest Day Marathon on Thursday.  Starting point.

I worked on the Flamingo.  Also progress for the week.  I have done more white on it but didn't take a pic.

Only 2 colors left on Chip and Dale.  I will get it done this week.

Poor Donald has been hanging out with the dust bunnies for the last 3 months.  He should have had all the black done a loooong time ago.

AvroraCS just released a new chart.  I will be starting this one on July 1.

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.

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?
