Progress? Um....not so much...

Hi Everybody!!

I  know I've been bad at keeping up to date here.  I did finish one of the charts I hoped to this year...and I even got it framed for DH for our Anniversary last month!  He wanted to take it to work, but I was mean and said I wanted to look at it too!  LOL  Here's a peek...

I have been working on Aurora Cabin.  I must say this is more ambitious than I thought.  Most of it is half stitches, but when I get to the full cross stitches, it bogs me down.  Can you spell c-o-n-f-e-t-t-i stitches?  UGH!!  I changed my needle more than I can count.  Here is what it looked like before... is what I've done so far, with a few close up pics so you can see what I've been dealing with...

Silly me, I keep signing up for exchanges, then promised people I would stitch things for them, and then found a book to crochet flowers.  I think I have adult onset ADD...can anyone suggest a good counselor??  LOL!  Off to try and be productive.  Wish me luck!

It's been awhile

In my own defense I haven't updated my blog in forever also. Seems I'd rather be stitching. LOL.
I had Train of Dreams off the q snaps to move it today (yes I am still totally addicted to this one) so decided to take a total progress pic. When I finish the page I am working on I will officially be halfway on this project. I am hoping to finish it by the end of December. We shall see. Lots of confetti in this one. Hope every one is happily stitching away.

September Update

Well, August was quite a hectic month, what with returning to the States and trying to get semi-settled somewhere. But I did manage to get some stitching in once in a while. I'm working on "Count Your Blessings" by Victoria Sampler. I already had the first two panels completed and the third one started. Last month I got the third panel completed and a small start on the fourth and final panel. Here are photos of the two panels I worked on. I'll be continuing with this project this month.
