September Smalls SAL, A New Stitchy Start SAL and Yarn

Hi Blogger Friends. 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.

Only 1 left of this series to stitch.  Those silly little spiders took me forever to stitch.

Cinderella's Castle.   This is a SAL called A New Stitchy Start 2015.  Not to much progress this month.


Do you think I have enough yarn?

This has been keeping me busy sorting and re-tubbing for the last week.  This is only about one-third of my yarn collection.  I'm glad that I've been collecting it for 43 years.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Sept. Gifted Gorgeousness and TUSAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  I'm still here.  I got a year older and my computer decided to croak.  I bought a new one and it came with Windows 10 which I hate and a very tiny keyboard which I hate.  I wasn't able to load pictures on my blog until the tech came out and fixed it.  So here are my very late SAL pics.

GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  We all have projects that have been gifted to us or pieces that we are doing as gifts.   This SAL is so we can work on those and post on the 15th.  The magazine was gifted to me by our wonderful hostess.
Pretty Mini Paris by Satsuma Street. I finished it.

TUSAL This is where we save our (ORTS) or floss and yarn ends and post a picture of them on the New Moon.  This is being hosted by Sharon of It's Daffycat.  Don't tell anybody, but Kate and I are up to 15 different projects for the April challenge next year.  I have been doing more crocheting than cross stitching this past month and still am.

More afghan squares for the April challenge next year.

Thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving me such wonderful comments.  You are the best.  It would sure be awesome if we could all meet someday.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Starts, WIP's and Yarn

Hi Blogger Friends.  I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments that you left on my last post.  You all made me giggle with your (creepy walnut shell) guesses as to what the object was at the top of the picture.

Still not a lot of stitching.  I think a little more crochet.  I did get crazy again and joined 3 SAL's.  First up is Stitch Maynia on Facebook.  Somebody put up a challenge to do a new start each day for the last 6 days of August.  Duh!  Of course I had to join.
