Aurora Cabin...

Hi Getitdoners!

I haven't made much progress on Aurora Cabin.  Seems I signed up for an exchange, we had two new members of the family make an appearance and I made them both afghans, my anniversary popped up and we took a little trip.  You can see more on my blog if you care to take a peek.  But....I did make, here it is!

Gee, since we are more than halfway through the year, and I'm less than halfway through this pattern, I'm beginning to wonder if I'll make it.  How are the rest of you guys doing?  I don't know about you, but right about now I'm feeling a little discouraged.  *sigh* 


Hi all!  

I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to get this going.  It's been a bit busy at DJ's Digs (I know I sound like a broken record) and then my internet has been down.  I haven't quite figured out how to write posts from my ipad.  Anway, excuses aside, I'm here didn't see any "after" posts.  BUT...I have seen a lot of progress since the beginning.  So...let's do it this way.  I'll give you another week to post progress pictures.  Then I will write another post, and you can vote in the comments the one you think has had the most progress.  (Hopefully our new router will be here and my internet problems will have been solved!)

So...on the 22nd we will vote...see ya then!

July Status

Well, as most everyone knows, I finished putting together the Gingerbread House from Victoria Sampler. It's not perfect, but still so cute. I'm looking forward to displaying it in my next stitching "studio" - wherever it may be.

So, now it is on to the next project. For the next few months, I'll be working on Victoria Sampler's "Count Your Blessings". At least until we get settled in our new place and I get the "studio" set up. Here is where I ended the last time I worked on this project. Hopefully, I'll have some time to work on this project in-between shopping for a new vehicle and looking for a new home. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Julie's July achievements

Well, I was trying and trying to finish this. As you can see its "nearly done"

I will be sorry to see the last of this, but I have three other LongDogs to do, Moulin Rouge, Renaissance, and Opus II. So plenty to go on with.

It's been a lovely stitch, rather nice to do a single colour for a change!!

Meanwhile I have done some other over one stitching. Its using Gentle arts threads (quaker colours)
and is rather nice so far.
