WIP Wednesday - February 25

I think it's been a good week.

Pack of Cards was here when I finished IHSW on Sunday

and I got a few more stitches in Tuesday morning.

Purrfect was here when I put it down last week

and looked like this after craft night last night.

I think the head is finally getting some shape.

Hoping to get some stitches in all 4 of my pieces this week - we'll see what I have to show next Wednesday.

IHSW February 2015

It's been a good weekend - got some stitches into 2 pieces.

Pack of Cards was here on Friday:

and I stopped here on Sunday.

PM Noah's Ark was here Friday:

And here by Sunday night.

Now that the angels have eyes, they don't look so much like blobs.

Can't wait to see how everyone else did this weekend.

It's A Double Post Day - TUSAL And WIP Wednesday

First, it's TUSAL day! What's TUSAL? I'm glad you asked. Check out It's Daffycat's blog and see what all the fun and silliness is about. So, here's my ORT collection for February.

And it's also WIP Wednesday. I managed to get a few stitches into Pack of Cards and Purrfect this week - and the frog kept his distance.

Pack of Cards, Feb 3.

Started the next line of the saying - and a new colour!

Purrfect, Feb 3.

This week I hope to get the line on Pack of Cards finished - and maybe start the bottom row of hearts, work on my PM chart at least enough to meet this month's challenge goal and show some love to the Wedding Sampler. I'd cross my fingers, but it's hard to stitch that way.

WIP Wednesday

All I can say is "bad week"! Trying to sort out a serious issue with my job and support a friend dealing with a family crisis and trying to stitch to relax, but all that happens when I pick up my needle is that the frog comes calling. Every stitch I have put in Pack of Cards, the Wedding Sampler and Noah's Ark has had to come out - EVERY one.

So, what does a dedicated stitcher do - she picks up another old project! And this is as far as I got before the frog arrived for this one as well!

Next week has got to be better, she says hopefully.

WIP Wednesday!

Well, here it is the first Wednesday in February. I managed a little stitching on the Wedding Sampler and more on Pack of Cards.

Sampler Jan 28:

Feb 3 - got the vines done on the capital letters and thought I was done with them - forgot there are beads as well.

Tried to work on the capital letters of the alphabet, but frogged as much as I stitched, so put it aside for a few days.

Pack Cards Jan 28:

Feb 3:

Coming along nicely with the right border. Thank goodness the next set of letters is a colour change - enough red already!

No stitches put in Noah's Ark - hopefully this week.
