Starts 121 -139

Hi Blogger Friends.  I decided to go back to my year of starts.  My friend Kate told me that I would not be able to catch up to her 409 WIP's.  It took my DH 24 years to learn that to me No means Yes.  So my stubborn streak has now kicked in and I WILL catch her even if it takes me until Dec. 31 and I have a 1000 UFO's.

May 21 -  Starts 121 - 125  Total 335

May 22 - Starts 126 - 129  Total 339

May 23 - Starts 130 - 135  Total 345  Days 1 - 6

May 24 - Starts 136 - 139  Total 349   I belong to a Facebook group called Stitch MAYnia.  The 24th of each month they pick a different color to stitch with for that day. This month was red.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Gifted Gorgeousness, TUSAL and progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  It was so nice to take a break from blogging.  I have been reading all of your posts and have been commenting.  As usual, I'm late with my posts.

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.

Mini London by Satsuma Street - I finished the Eye and added the windows in the bus.  At this rate, I might get it done by the end of the year.

Totally useless stitch a long is being hosted by It's Daffycat.   We save our old ratty threads and post them on the new moon..  Really late on this one.  These are my orts for the year.

 Besides all of your sweet comments last month the other thing that kept me going was thinking about stitching on Sleeping Beauty from DoNa Stitch on Etsy.  (She just released Aladdin and Cinderella today.)  I stitched only on this for the last 2 weeks except London on Saturday night and Pretty Little New York last night.  Here is where I left it 1-31-16.

Here it is as of 5-14-16  (This is 2 1/4 skeins of 3808 or about 5,000 stitches of that color out of 15,668.)

I have been trying to come up with some kind of rotation.  They all sound good when I'm thinking about them.  I know I want to do a couple hundred stitches a day on this one.  I'm also starting to get the startitis bug again.  I think I am going to continue with my year of starts,  

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

April Smalls SAL

Hi Blogger Friends.  I'm a little late in posting my smalls.

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 Thursday of the month.  I didn't post in February or March but I think I made up for it in April.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

A - Z Reflections Post

Hi Blogger Friends.   I can't believe I survived another April challenge.  I really enjoyed stitching on all of them and am very happy with the amount I got done.  However, I did struggle the last week with the Harry Potter Alphabet.  I was so tired of stitching with 310 and 3799.  Your comments kept me gong plus knowing what I was going to stitch on when it was done.

I am doing the challenge again next year and sorta know a couple things that I will be doing.  I was a little more prepared this year from last year and hope to be more prepared for next year.

Thank you again for all of the lovely comments.

Thanks for stopping by.  Linda
