I do have some progress photos on more of my Turtle Trot SAL pieces. I somewhat gave up on Warbreaker since it wasn't going to be finished in time and set aside time for some others. Here's an update on the entire list. No, I didn't stitch on everything, because of course I had to start some new projects too!
1. Warbreaker - no update since February.
2. Gone With the Wind - haven't started yet, but I'll need to get a move on to finish it for my Grandma in November of this year!
3. Tree of Stitches - I'm...
Hello fellow hermitters! I hope you all had a great IHSW this weekend. Thanks to Joyce for getting everyone together to virtually stitch along with each other.
I'm taking a break from Warbreaker because I wasn't able to attend the author signing after all. I'm working on a thank you gift for a friend that is a big fan of these movies
This fantastic chart can be found at Pyro Dog's Etsy shop. The Evil Dead movies are a favourite of DH's as well, so I can see that I"ll be stitching this again sometime soon. I'm using 28 ct cashel...
I played hooky from Warbreaker this weekend to work a lot on my HAED BB Freebie SAL, the Mystic Garden QS. I didn't get much done since I've been recovering from a cold, but 500 stitches isn't too bad for one day's work.
I worked on Warbreaker throughout the week and I didn't get a lot done, but hopefully I'll be better off this week and be able to finish another page. There are 9, but the right-most page is only 20-30 stitches wide. Wish me luck!
If you're like me, then you've started more projects lately than you've completed. So I've decided to join the Turtle Trot SAL over at BAP Attack. I don't have as many WIPs as she does, but I have more than I'd like. So in 2013 I'll try and work on these projects more than starting any new ones. Join in if you've got a pile of WIPs/UFOs you'd like to work on!
Alright, so now I must decide for sure on 13 patterns to work on this year. My last post gave hints of what I'd like to work on, but...
I completed several projects this year, but I still have a few lingering WIPs I had hoped to complete. Since the Xmas Xstitching Challenge I joined last year kind of fizzled out I didn't keep up with my Xmas stitching and got distracted by other projects, like that huge carnival piece.
I'm hoping 2013 I will actually keep myself on track and finish a few pieces, although I also have several new starts I'd like to make. My plan is to join the Turtle Trot SAL over at BAP Attack and work on 13 WIPs/UFOs. My list has been changing almost...
Thank you for all your encouragement! Of course I didn't get as much done as I would have liked, but I pretty much met my main goal, which was to finish the top 4 rows on the HAED Siberian Forest QS. Even DH will admit it's starting to look like something now.
And I'm getting the hang of parking, so that has made this a lot easier to stitch. I think if I had a month to work on it I would be all caught up, but of course I have a million other WIPs to do!
Here's a bit of...
I suffered a bit of ennui this weekend, so I didn't finish quite as much as I'd hoped. And I realized I'm not that fond of White Wolves as I thought. So it's been somewhat of a pain. At least I haven't made any mistakes as far as I know. I'll likely do White Wolves every other day as I did with Angelic Melody until it's finished. Hopefully that won't be too long.
The left most stitching is the very end of the chart, and I am much happier stiching in my Qsnap than that old scroll frame. It was pretty...

No finishes this past month for Xmas X-stitching, but I did get a lot of work done on Angelic Melody. Let's start with her.
So she's well on her way to completion. It's possible even within a few weeks. The wing is all half cross-stitch and as you can see in the next picture, it's only the top banner that is practically untouched.
I've been backstitching and cording, etc. as I go so I don't have a ton left to do at the end. I'm going to leave the strings on the...
This month brings another finish! I was able to find another LNS, and I really need a separate post to gush about how exciting that is, but the important point is they had both WDW Ivy and Autumn Leaves to allow me to finish this piece.
as you can tell I haven't ironed it yet, but I did thumbtack it to the wall and it makes me happy to look at it completed. I was really feeling bogged down by the number of WIPs I had going, so having another completion feels really, really good. A friend mentioned since it's on...
