Happy Mother's Day

I have another update on my stitching for the last 2 rotations. The first is 2 weeks work on Chocolate,Chocolate & More Chocolate. You can see one of the cupcakes taking shape now. I love working on this (well, I love working on all of them).
Next is my update on Train of Dreams. Got in 2 good weeks on this one. Still loving it.

And last but not least(& I know I'm crazy) but today I am starting another one. This will be 6 in the rotation. I am starting Sundae Delight.
This is another SAL with Caite. We are also being joined in this one by Elena & Annie.

I hope all of the Mom's who read my ramblings have a wonderful Mother's Day & get plenty of stitching done.

It's Time for Another Update

Good morning,

I have put in 2 weeks on The Astronomer & I think I have made some good progress. I did 926 stitches. It doesn't sound like alot but it was all confetti stitching. I confess I had one day out of the 2 weeks that I did not get 1 stitch in. Just too tired.

Now I have a confession to make. Chocolate, Chocolate & More Chocolate was supposed to have a turn next but I could not resist starting another one. I have now added Afternoon Tea to my rotation.

What can I say. I'm addicted to these little dragons.
On a non stitching note the weather here has been better. No snow & not much rain for the last 2 weeks.Maybe spring has finally come to New England.
Okay now time to go stitch somemore.
Have a great day

I'm Back

I'm trying to be better about posting updates on my HAED's. I am rotating 4 of them at the moment(that # could change if my fabric ever comes in) but I haven't been good about posting updates. Since I am no good at keeping track of how many hours I put in at any one time I keep track of how many stitches I do each day. So far Treasure Quest has had 2 turns in the rotation of 2 weeks each time. The first 2 weeks I put in 2214 stitches & the second two weeks I put in 1639. The 2nd rotation had alot more confetti stitching. Now I have put this away and am working on the Astronomer(the HAED that started my addiction) for the next 2 weeks.

It's About Time

Geez, I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted. Goes to show the old saying "Time flys when you're having fun" is so true. I have been stitching away & have 3 projects to update on. When last I posted it was with my progress on Treasure Quest. Now I have updates on 3 projects that I have stitched on since then. Train of Dreams, The Astronomer & Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate (this one will now be referred to as CC&MC). They have each had 2 weeks of stitching.
Also woke up this morning to more of that four letter word s***. Come on enough is enough. I grew up in Montana & we never had this much snow at once back then.
I would also like to ask a favor of anyone who comments & asks a question please leave your email address so I can reply.

Treasure Quest

Hi All,

 It has been 2 weeks of stitching on Treasure Quest so it is time to post a progress picture & then change to The Astronomer for his 2 weeks of attention. I have also taken a picture of my TUSAL for this month. I know I know I'm late. In my defense I am stitching instead of taking pictures on time. I also added a photo of my stitching buddy Brandi. You should try to stitch with a 65 pound Irish Setter in the chair with you..She is pretty good though she lays still & keeps her head out of the way. I can't say the same for all the exotic fibers that end up in my stitching.

RIP Rene La Frog

Sad news. This week we lost a dear friend & fellow stitcher Rene La Frog to cancer. She will be greatly missed in our stitching groups & by her family.
From now on every stitch I make will be dedicated to Rene because of her love of stitching & her willingness to help anyone who asked.
With her permission I borrowed this from Mel L's blog.

January 2011

Wow, I can't believe it is 2011 already. Why does it seem that time goes faster the older you get. Seems like summer was just yesterday & now it is the middle of winter. We had a great Christmas & a quiet New Year.
I had the week between Christmas & New Years off so got alot of stitching done. It's amazing what you can do when you don't have to worry about going to work Then again have to work to pay for stash. I finished my 2 week rotation on Train of Dreams & on January 1 I started Treasure Quest. I know I'm crazy but I can't help myself. Spangler's work is so addicting & the little dragons are so cute. So cute that I ordered 4 more of them. HAED was having a 30% off sale & what girl can resist a sale. I got Eldar, Afternoon Tea,Curl up with a Good Book & Medieval Shelf. I also picked up Christmas Presence for my Santa collection. Without boring you further here is my progress on Train of Dreams & my start on Treasure Quest.
I have also taken the last picture of my TUSAL for 2010. It has been emptied into my huge jar & is ready to start over for 2011.
