Starts 80 - 82 & FINISH #8

Hi Blogger Friends.  Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and ate alot. 

Oh my!!!!  I have another finish.  Kinda scary.  This was a SAL with Debbie.

Lady Liberty - Imaginating - Diane Arthurs

 Start 80 - Monthly Flip-It Blocks- Nov. - Lizzie Kate

Start 81 - Pumpkin Hollow Farm - Little House Needleworks

Start 82 -Merry Christmas Y'All - Imaginating - Diane Arthurs

Wow.  Blogger or something would not let me load pictures the way I usually do.  I went to Picasa and deleted pics and than added etc.  Anyway I got it done, but it was a royal pain in the behind.  I sure hope WHOEVER fixes the problem sooner rather than later.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Starts 78 and 79

Hi Blogger Friends.  I am really enjoying my starts.  Only problem, every one I start I want to keep working on.  My plan for next year - do the UCJC2013 (start a new project everyday in Jan) - the Turtle Trot SAL (very excited about this one).  I have been doing alot of thinking about how I want to stitch on pieces next year.  I have a couple different ideas.  I am NOT going to start 100 projects.  I'm sure there will be some that I just have to start.  lol

Start 78 - Autumn Harvest - Little House Needleworks

Start 79 - Wild Wacky Woman - Imaginating - Diane Arthurs (I am just doing the banner in the middle)

Lady Liberty - I WILL finish her this week.

Halloween House - There seems to be only 3 of us working on this now.  I have updated the HH SAL page with our progress.

Thanks for looking.  Linda

PS We did get more lights on the house.  We will start putting out the spiral trees (about 18) and a few other things on Wed.  We plan on having it done and all lit on the 29th.

Starts 72 and 73

Hi Blogger Friends.  I am very excited.  My stitching mojo is BACK.  I have kept up with my starts and have done a little on my SAL's.  I did work on Halloween House and Santa's 12 Days, but not enough to take a pic.  I have gotten so far behind from not stitching for three months that I don't know if I'll ever catch up.
I have been thinking alot on my 31 January starts.  Also, a new Turtle Trot SAL.  You pick 13 WIP's/UFO's and work on them every month, even if its only 10 stitches.  You have to post a progress pic of all of them on the 13th of each month.  Very excited about this one.  (And I wonder why I don't sleep at night.)

Start 72 - Winter Season - Imaginating - Sandra Cozzolino

Start 73 - Seasonal Teddies - Imaginating - Joan Elliott  (that little pumpkin took forever)
                Sassy's paw is pointing at the pumpkin.

Prairie Schooler September (I need to change the colors of the inside of the leaves)  Does anybody else notice on their charts, that the floss colors don't match the colors on the cover.  They always seem to be much more vibrant or lighter or something.

Can you tell me what you see in this picture.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Oh My 2 Finishes and 1 Start

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all the wonderful comments.  I do so appreciate them.

We had a very slow Halloween this year.  We only had about 225 kids.  It was cloudy but no rain.  This was our seventh Halloween in this house and we have been averaging about 350 kids each year.  One year we had no power and sat on the porch with flashlights and they still kept a treatin'.

Okay and Oh My.  I have two finishes for a total of seven this year.  Yeah me. 

Cackle - Raise the Roof
14ct Tropical Green
started 1-18-12
finished 10-31-12

Spring & Fall - Prairie Schooler
14ct Natural aida
started 4-25-12
finished 10-28-12

 Lady Liberty by Diane Arthurs.  This is a summer theme SAL with Debbie.  

Start 71 - Do What Your Wife Said - Lizzie Kate

If I worked one more day on this, I could have it done.  At least I accomplished my goal of starting one piece every other day for the next two months.  lol

I'll leave you with a pic of hubby, Morris (bottom) and Moon Dragon.
