Day 7 of 15

Man o man am I tired today. Couldn't fall asleep for anything last night and then John came to bed really late and instead of turning his alarm on he turned mine off! Luckily I had set my alarm really early. (I was hoping to post before I had to go to work) John woke up and was like "Hun aren't you suppose to be getting ready for work" So I rushed through getting ready so i'd have time to drive to town on the snowy roads. I ended up making it to work way too early! LOL. Anyways yesterday I picked 'I Love You Snoopy'. I plan on making it a Valentine's ornament for my little tree. I almost had my second finish of the year but alas... half his head still needs filled in. It will most likely be the first one I pick up after all 15 projects have been started. Now to go figure out what to work on tonight. I really can't wait to go back and finish some of these projects! And I already have a couple new things that need to be added to the pile to be stitched soon for presents.

Happy Stitching!

Day 6 of 15

Another day another start. I picked up Daisy Girl. I don't know what it was about this pattern yesterday but it just kept intimidating me. It's not full of confetti or anything but I just kept feeling overwhelmed by it. So I didn't get too much stitched. I think for todays start i'm picking an easy one that maybe I can have my second finish of the year with. Well happy stitching to you all!

Day 5 of 15

I ended up picking Story of Seasons. It's a soda stitch pattern. I just love their patterns. I didn't really get too much done on it yesterday (ended up playing video games with John) but a start is a start.

My plan for today is to stitch and watch movies all day! Happy Stitching to you all.

Day 4 of 15 & Wed. SAL

So day 4 I picked up Autumn in NY. I didn't really get too much done on it yesterday. I ended up finally getting my butt around and took down the Christmas stuff. But here is what I did manage...

Also today is Wednesday so that means 'On Christmas Day' SAL. I got a good chunk done before the new year but I haven't touched it at all since starting the crazy 15 but I guess I prolly should this week so I will have some progress to show next week.

Well i'm off to to post office and into town to pick up a few things. Happy stitching to everyone!

Day 3 of 15 & TUSAL (Part 2)

Yay I got the darned thing shoved in! I know this is also my third post for the day but I promise it should be the last!

Alright so first my day 3 progress. I picked up my Wise Old Owl pattern and started on that. I so wish I could continue on him. He was getting to be fun. But onto another project today. Can't wait for the 15 days to be done so I can work on some of these that just are too much fun.

And it's the New Moon tonight so here is my jar..... well bowl. I need to go pick up a new jar. I have decided that i'm going to save every years and place them on a shelf in my stitching room. Well as soon as I get the stitching room cleaned out and set up.

Well off to pick Day 4's project. Happy Stitching!

Day 2 of 15

Day 2 wasn't a very good day for me. I do feel much much better today. After I blogged yesterday I tried to get ready for work. I couldn't even stand up for more than a min or two without excruciating pain. (this is the second time I've had a kidney stone) So I regrettably called in to work and told them I wouldn't be able to make it in. I then took a bunch of ibuprofen and crawled into bed and fell asleep for 5 hours. Woke up tried to eat dinner and then of course couldn't fall back asleep. So I decided to pull out my day 2 project which I picked Apple Harvest. And got this much done...

I'm surprised at how much I got done considering I couldn't sit still very long. I did end up watching two movies that i've had on my DVR forever. It was 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' (talk about a horrible ending) and 'The Bucket List'.

Now i'm off to go pick what day 3 will be. Happy Stitching!

Day 1 of 15

I'm going to almost always post the day after so that way I get the whole day to stitch on that days project.

I think I was in a good stitchy zone yesterday because my start was also a finish. I decided to do 'Meow Spoken Here' as my first project.

I don't know how much i'll end up getting stitched on todays project. I'm not feeling all too good (I think its a kidney stone i'm in so much pain so please send some prayers). I also am suppose to go to work this afternoon. So hopefully the pain will ease up by that time.

Hope you all are having a great year so far. Happy Stitching!
