Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

I’ve been quietly stitching away during my lunch hour and during the evenings after I’ve settled down.  I’m happy with my progress, and at this rate, I think I’ll have him finished in a decent amount of time.  The latest photos are 10 to 18. Day 18 represents the fabric closer to true to colour. … Continue reading

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

I’ve been making steady progress on this project, and so far I’m enjoying it.  Here’s what I’ve done since my last post (days 5 to 9): I was determined to log my time spent on stitching this time around, because I was curious as to how many working hours I actually spent on a project.  … Continue reading

Winter White Santa Progress No. 1

I got tired of beading my mystery gift.  I worked on it for four days in a row and managed to get a lot done.  However, anyone who has beaded a project knows that’s a lot of beading.  To give myself a little bit a of break, I decided to get a start on Winter … Continue reading

Mystery Gift Progress No. 10

Yay!  My final progress post for this project.  All stitching is now complete, including the lazy daisy stitches, which I almost looked over.  Thank goodness I quickly read through the back stitching instructions one last time to make sure I got everything. As I was completing my lazy daisy stitches, the power went out!  Thankfully, … Continue reading

Ruby, Progress No. 1

I started a new project.  I haven’t drifted from my Mystery Gift, but I did have an hour to kill and it was easier to bring along this neat, little project versus my larger project. Two weekends ago, I had to cancel my daughter’s guitar lesson due to bad weather driving conditions.  This past weekend, … Continue reading

Mystery Gift Progress No. 9

Yay!  I’m making progress.  The upside to not being able to work out is that I have more time to stitch.  I’ve been spending my evenings in front of the TV stitching away.  Besides, who wants to go out in this cold anyway?  I don’t know about anywhere else, but where I am, temps are … Continue reading

Mystery Gift Progress No. 8

Stitching, stitching, and more stitching. That’s what I’ve been up to.  I’ve made some progress on the bottom.  I’m diligently working my way through the confetti stitching.  I also did as much back stitching (as my stitching progress would allow) on the bottom.  My son made a comment about the bottom of her dress.  He … Continue reading

Mystery Gift Progress No. 7

I’m happy to report that I’ve been spending a little more time stitching during the evenings. I’m content with the way the design is growing.  Finally, some new colours came in to play as well–pinks.  It’s a pleasant change from the endless white, greens, and blues.  My goal is to finish up the bottom portion … Continue reading

Mystery Gift Progress No. 6

Happy New Year, everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season.  I had some time away from work, and I enjoyed every minute of it.  Although I had pledged to get as much stitching as I could, I failed at that attempt. Two of my evenings were occupied when I set about filing and … Continue reading
