Feb, GG and Smalls SAL's, Start 32, Giveaway Winner

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all the comments and giveaway guesses.  There were a few that scared me.  lol

GIFTED GORGEOUSNESS is being hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching.  (Jo you need to change your blog name to Jo's Stitching.  That word is to hard to spell.) LOL  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.
This is mini London by Satsuma Street. I managed to finish the red on the bus and start the bridge.  I still have New York to stitch.  At this rate I'll be working on these for the next 5 years.

It's the last Friday of the month and time for the Smalls SAL post.  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 Friday of the month.  (This is one that didn't get finished for the April challenge last year.)
The Flintstones by Clouds Factory
14ct Blue Ridge Aida
Started 2-27-16
Finished 2-25-17

Start 32 The Mad Hatter by MrsPeggottyArts on Etsy

I was having major burn out from working on my April challenge pieces and had to start it.  This is project 6 for my ten -a-day which will be 80 a day which will be a whole lot more a day (starting May 1) until I get caught up.  This is 1175 stitches or weeks 1 and 2.

This is going to be project 7.  Pretty Little Barcelona by Satsuma Street started 1-8-15.

Now for the giveaway.  The winning guess was 750 which was:

As of January 31, 2017 I had 756 UFO's/WIP's.

 I don't know about you but when I'm sitting at the table stitching I do a whole lot of thinking (unless I'm counting).  So many of you have rotations or schedules that seem to work for you.  I really would like to get a rotation/schedule figured out and that is what I have been doing a lot of thinking about.  I think I have come up with one that I will be happy with starting May 1.  I will let you know as it gets closer to that date.  You all know me - I'll change my mind a hundred times between now and then.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the sweet comments and words of encouragement.  I really appreciate them.

I did my first blog post on 1-2-11 and never thought I would ever have so many awesome friends.  Thank you for sticking with me.  I would like to do a little giveaway in honor of my 6 year Blogoversary.  It's going to be a little contest.  Guess how many TOTAL Wip's/UFO's I have started.
It's a whole bunch.  The person guessing the closest without going over will win a $15.00 gift certificate.

Comment on this post only with your guess.  I will keep it open until February 25.

On a sidenote - Of course I haven't touched my Ten-a-day projects since the second week.  BUT, I like to play catch up.  I have also decided that I am going to add 2 more projects.  That way I can do 70 stitches a day in each one and hopefully will have 7 finishes by the end of the year.  HOWEVER, (you knew that was coming - right.)  One of the projects will be a start sometime soon I hope or maybe not until May 1.  I am trying to decide which one.  Any suggestions?  I would only have to do about 55 stitches everyday to get it done.  More of course until I get it caught up.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

PS  I'm still frantically stitching away on my April challenge projects.

My sweet Mocha.  RIP
