Day 14 of 15

Day 14s pick was Curious Cats stocking...

Yep heres my grand whopping 11 stitches for yesterday's start. I am having so many problems now getting myself to start a new project. Thank goodness today is the last start! I sat most of the day playing my DS and kept putting off stitching. But I finally picked it up and got a couple stitches in. First off this is 22ct hardanger. At first I did two threads over two but it didn't look filled enough. Then I frogged it and tried three threads. It still looks a little bit too... empty. For you more experienced stitcher's out there 'how many threads would you suggest on 22ct over 2'?

Day 13 of 15

So yesterday I went to the LNS and JoAnn's and Michaels. I got a lot of cool stuff. Got my swap partners v-day gifts, and stuff for my v-day giveaway (keep an eye out). I can't show you everything I got but here are some of the things I got at the LNS.

The last time I was in there she had gotten some really gorgeous sparkly fabrics. I couldn't think of anything I needed them for but they were just so pretty. So I came home and went through my stash and found something I thought would be really cute on it. So I picked up some 'Seaside Twinkle' and started my 13th project. 'Mermaids'

I also have never used any of the hand dyed threads so I pick up the recommended colors and I am having a lot of fun using them. I really did not want to put this one down at all last night. I think this will be the first one I pick back up. I am so thankful since I started blogging it has really opened my eyes to all that is out there for cross stitching. I'm finally starting to branch out and try new things.

Yay only two more projects to go! I really don't want to pick up either of my last couple of projects. But I don't want to pick something new. So off I go to figure out which one is getting worked on today. Happy Stitching!

Day 12

So yesterday I picked up the Mill Hill 'Nice' ornament. I got much more accomplished on this one vs. the day I picked up the 'Naughty' one.

Now i'm off to get ready. Going to go to the LNS store and pick up a few goodies and then to JoAnn's and then to Michaels to get next weeks schedule. And then John and I are going to go see a movie and eat out. Hopefully I can squeeze some stitching in tonight. Happy stitching to you all.

Day 11 of 15 & Wed. SAL

Getting to the home stretch. Only a few more starts and then we can actually try to get some more finishes in! I actually had another Happy Dance yesterday. I picked my last 'small' project after the troubles with the weight lifting kitty. I picked up 'Snuggle with me' from Britter cup. It was just too cute I had to stitch it!

And then since today is Wednesday I get to show my progress of 'On Christmas Day'. I hadn't really been able to work on it except for a couple stitches here and a couple stitches there. But yesterday after finishing snuggle I picked it up and got a whole page done. Yay half way done!

Off to pick my project for today. Happy stitching to you all!

Day 10 of 15

*sighs* I did not have a good day yesterday with my pick. I picked up Margaret Sherry's weight lifting cat. I saw him and hes just so cute and I thought it would be a cute idea to stitch him up and hang him by John's weights. So I sat down and did a bunch of the stitches then set it aside to play the Wii with John. Later when I picked it up and started another color I noticed one little section is over one square... and of course it's in the middle of the thread so I have to frog a huge section just to move 4 squares! So I got really fed up and threw him back into the box. I thought about just picking something different but by the time I did it was midnight and I just decided to head to bed. So who knows I might just add the new one I picked last night or just try picking up the kitty again another day. I hope you guys all had better progress yesterday than I did!

Day 9 of 15

So after work I sat down and picked up project 9.

I wonder what it could be...

A yellowish blob looks like to me...

Think... think... think...

Oh I know what it is... it's a happy dance! My second finish of the year! Pooh Bear. I'm going to put a pin backing on him. After I got him finished I worked on my secret non stitchy project for a little while last night. Now i'm off to pick today's project and work more on the non stitchy project. Happy stitching to you all!

Day 8 of 15

After I blogged yesterday I sat down and just really did not feel like stitching. So I just picked up my Mill Hill ornament 'Naughty' and put just a couple stitches in. So it's a start.

I did end up doing something else crafty but pics will have to wait til its all finished and delivered in the mail.

I have to leave for work in a bit. Hopefully when I get home i'll have more stitchy mojo to get today's project started.

Happy Stitching.
