September Smalls SAL and TUSAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  I did get the baby blanket crocheted in 3 days and forgot to take a picture.  Duh!  I'll just have to make another one.  It was a lot of fun to make.

It's the last Wednesday of the month and time for the Smalls SAL.  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 Wednesday of the month.

Celebration Startitis

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you all for the birthday wishes.  I swear I'm going to reply to all your comments for the last month.  My arm decided to get another infection.  Hard to do anything when your laying in bed.

The 12th was my 22nd anniversary.  What a wonderful man.  I know in my heart that he was sent to me.  I truly believe if not for him, I wouldn't be here today.  The 14th was my Medi Care birthday.  I had told Debbie about a month ago as to what I wanted to do to celebrate.  We were talking on the phone and she just started laughing.  We must have been on the phone for at least 3 hours and she would just start laughing again and call me silly names.  I thought maybe she was right and I wasn't going to do it.  In light of what happened, I decided to go ahead with it.  I'm so glad I did.  Every one that I started made me think of that phone conversation and put a smile on my face.  This is part one.  I started these in 5 days.

I'm a weiner.  I won Angela's - Hooked on Stitches 6th Blogoversary giveaway.  Look what she made just for big ole me.   This is actually a box.  My very first box and I love it.
And this adorable ornament.  Her stitching and finishing are absolutely stunning.
And these dishclothes.  You can never have enough of these.
Thank you again Angela.  These are so special.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

On a side note: I have to crochet a baby blanket in TWO days.  Wish me luck.

Linda's Turtle Trot SAL September Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's Turtle Trot time.  This is a SAL being hosted by Claudette of BAP Attack.  We pick 10 projects to work on throughout the year and see how many we can finish.  I'm quite pleased with the amount I got done on them this month.  I would love to get them all finished this year except the Disney.  It's going to take 10 years.

1.  Mitten Friends - Diane Arthurs - Started the bottom of the mitten.

2.  6 Fat Men - Lizzie Kate - I planted two trees and then it started snowing again.

3.  Disney Heroe's #16 - Alina's XStitch - I finally added some color.  I couldn't handle the dark greens and browns any longer.  I have been working on this for a year.  How long ya think its gonna take me.

4. Pretty Little New York - Satsuma Street - This is so much fun to stitch on.  So I decided to add it to the list.

4.  Summer Season - Sandra Cozzolino - It's FINISHED
14ct Natural Aida
Started 9-24-12
Finished 9-10-14

5.  Mermaid Myrna - Diane Arthurs - I did a little more of the green in her tail.

6.  Dog Lessons for People - Lizzie Kate - I started another sentence.

7.  Autumn Season - Sandra Cozzolino - I worked on Autumn at the top.

8.  Spring Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - I added the e and k.

9.  March Sampler - Waxing Moon Designs - I stitched the cloud.

Guess what my hubby got me for my birthday.  Meet Sprinkles.  I just love her solid black left front leg and the left side of her face is black.  Her hair is just like silk.

Moon Dragon was saying hi.

I will be doing my craziness for the next 5 days.  Will be back Tuesday with pictures.

Thanks for looking.    Linda

September YOTA SAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  It's time for the Year of the Acronym post.  This is where we pick a project and work on during the month and post a before and after picture on the first Saturday of the month.  It is being hosted by Pull The Other Thread and you can read about it HERE.
This is Bothy Threads cut-thru North Pole House.  I stitched the blue and green map.



I wanted to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all the kind and encouraging words on my last couple posts.  My leg is all better and I didn't have to go to the hospital.  Ya know, you can't keep an old horse down.
 (I promise to reply to all your wonderful comments.  I'm just a lot behind.)
I also decided to start a facebook group - Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015 (DUCJC2015),  I would love for you all to join me.

Thanks for looking.   Linda
