WIP Wednesday 25 November 2015

Eek, it's Wednesday again! How does this keep happening so fast??

Got in a bit more stitching time this week. So, I've gone from here

to here.

Have got some gold metallic stitches to add, then start to make it up. All progress is good, right?

And I almost forgot - a couple of bloggers are doing giveaways. Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is starting a birthday club and every month will draw a name and that person will receive a gift. Check out her other posts as well - she always has fun opportunities happening.

Pickle Barrel Designs is offering a chance to win one of her new designs.

Check them out and support our fellow bloggers!

Well, I did get in some stitching time, sort of. This was last week's progress

and this is where I am now.

So where did the stitching time go? Into frogging everything that was already done. I had miscounted for placement and I mixed up 2 colour symbols. I really do hate frogs! However, back on track and hopefully steadily forward.

Busy Wednesday

First and foremost, it's Remembrance Day, a day to stop and remember the men and women who have served and the families that supported them. In my family, my mother served in WW2, her father served in WW1. My dad tried to enlist for WW2, was rejected - heart murmur I believe - so he went to Vancouver and built ships as his contribution to the war effort. But all 5 of his brothers served in one branch of the service or another. We were very lucky - everyone came home and got to go on with their lives. Canada would not be what it is today without them.

And it's WIP Wednesday!

Last week I was here - for the Christmas Ornie SAL I belong to

and got to here last night.

Not fully finished because everything I need to do that is in one of those boxes marked "Crafts" that isn't unpacked yet.

Also got a start on the next one which is really October's theme as I'm a month behind because of my move.

And it's TUSAL day as well.

This is what I've collected since my last post in August

(not much stitching time as you can tell) and here are my ORTs to date.

Have a very special day everyone!

I'd like to introduce you to my doofus plants who are obviously totally unaware that it is the end of the first week of November. Not only are they still blooming, but if you look closely you will see that many of them have new buds - including the rose bush! And yes, they really are outside 24 hours a day.

You can tell it's an El Nino year for sure.

WIP Wednesday 4 November 2015

Again, not much stitching, but the little time I snuck in was productive.

I was here last week

and got to here last night.

Just need to backstitch the words and give teddy some eyes and it will be ready for final finishing.

The fabric colour in the bottom picture is much closer to the real thing.
