July TUSAL

Happy July!!!

How has everyone's summer been going?
As is everywhere, here on PEI we are cooking!  Higher than normal temperatures but we are surviving.

Now onto the orts!

Sad, pretty much empty jar this month.  But better than completely empty right?!


Now lets see how I did on my goals -

Ping Panda by Brooke's Books.  My goal was to finish the border and all the white stitches.  I did finish the border and about half the white stitches.  So close!  New goal - Finish this.


Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Designs.  My goal was 500 stitches and I did 762.5!  Woohoo!  New goal - 700 stitches.


Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  My goal was to finish the Mind Your Mummy block, which is finished except for the button eyes which I will add after all the stitching is complete and to finish half the next block which I did not do.  New goal - Finish this block.


Deepest Love by Mirabilia.  My goal was to finish the page I was working on and I did!  New goal - stitch her arms.


Spring Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.  My goal was to finish the next block but I didn't stitch on it at all so it remained the same.  New goal - it isn't in my rotation this month so no goal.


Friendship Grows by LizzieKate.  My goal was to finish it and I did!


Noel 2013 by Le Chalet des Perelles.  My goal was to finish the snow across the bottom and while there still is more snow to stitch I made it to the row that started to have missing stitches and not be a complete row of white.  So I am going to call that a completed goal!  New goal - Stitch the border and the tree on the left.


Frog Biscornu by Casey Buonaugurio.  This was a new start this month.  I finished the borders for both sides and now I am starting to fill in the insides.  New goal - Fill in one side.


And that is it guys!  Now back to laundry and hopefully a couple more stitches before bed.

Happy Stitching!

June TUSAL

Hello friends!

I have been busy, busy since last month.  I finished up my old job and have since started a new job!  Now I work at a feed store, mostly farm animal feed but some pet feed too.  And actually we call ourselves a "Farm Service" store so there really is all kinds of farm stuff we sell.  I just finished my training today so I will only be working about 12 hours a week from now on, so more stitching time!

Now onto my orts:  My jar isn't very full but I am glad there is at least something in it.


Now onto the stitching!

Ping Panda by Brooke's Books.  My goal was to have this finished and sadly it didn't make it.  New goal finish the border and all the white stitches.


Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Designs.  My goal was 700 stitches.  I did 193.5.  Pitiful.  New goal 500 stitches.


Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  My goal was to finish "Stay up Late" and to finish half the next block and I would say that I did that.  New goal is to finish "Mind Your Mummy" and get half the next block finished.


Deepest Love by Mirabilia.  My goal was to finish the page I was working on and I did not do that but I am a little bit closer.  My goal will stay the same, finish that page.


Spring Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin.  My goal was to finish the "Quack" block and the next one.  Didn't happen.  New goal finish the next block.


Friendship Grows by LizzieKate.  This was a new start and my goal was to finish it and I am very close.  Only have to finish the wording.  My goal to finish it will remain the same.


Work Horses.  My goal was to add as many stitches as I could for a one day SAL and I added 191.  Quite happy with that.  I'm not sure when I will work on this one again so no goal for it next month.


Crazy Socks by Rosewood Manor.  My goal was to finish the first sock and I am close but didn't get it finished.  Not sure when I will work on this again so no new goal.


Noel 2013 by Le Chalet Des Perelles was a new start.  A very small new start.  My goal for next time is to finish the snow across the bottom.  There is a lot of it!


And that is it.  I am currently participating in a Choose My Wip SAL so I will only be working on 4 wips the month of June, one each week.  But I should be back to normal rotation in July.

Hope everything is swell in your neck of the woods!

Happy Stitching!

May TUSAL

Hello friends!

I seem to only be posting for TUSAL and finishes lately but that is better than not posting at all right?  

Life is still pretty busy but that should slow down some by next week.  I found out at the first of the month that my workplace will be closing.  My last working day will be the 26th and then I will have two more days the next week packing everything up.  I have been handing out resumes here, there and everywhere and I think I have a new job once this one finishes so keep your fingers crossed for me.  I sure am going to miss the girls I work with right now though!

Now onto the orts!


And here are the projects that contributed to my jar this month:

Mothers And Daughters by The Victoria Sampler - My goal was to have this finished to give to my mom for Mother's Day and I did it!


Ethan Elephant by Brooke's Books - My goal was to finish him, which I accomplished and to make a good start on the next one.  Well all I have stitched on the next one was about 3 stitches so I didn't even bother to take a picture.  New goal - Finish the next one.


Rudolph Kranz by Kissy-Cross - My goal was to have this finished and I finished it!


Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Designs - My goal was to add 600 stitches and I added 989!  Woohoo!   I only managed that because I stitched on it for a whole day at retreat.  New goal add 700 stitches.


Halloween Rules By LizzieKate - My goal was to finish this block and I am still working away at it.  Getting close though!  New goal - finish this block and half of the next one.


Deepest Love by Mirabilia - My goal was to stitch more of her skin and I have stitched lots more of her skin!  New goal - Finish the page I am on.


Spring Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkins - My goal was to finish the mushroom block and I did it!  New goal is to finish the next two blocks.


Bloom a freebie by LizzieKate - My goal was to finish it and I did!  I have started the next little freebie but don't seem to have a picture.  New goal - finish the next one.


Draft Horses - My goal was just to stitch as much as possible and I did.  I added 461.5 stitches.  New goal - I am only planning to stitch on this for one day for a SAL so just get as many stitches as possible on it.


Cars by BlossomHillSalon - I didn't have a goal for this one.  I use this as my movie watching project.  I watched 3 movies last month and added 211 stitches to this one.  New goal - stitch on this when I watch movies and get as many stitches as possible.


Kis Betlehem by aMINT - This was a new start and a finish last month.


Crazy Socks by Rosewood Manor - This was a new start so no goal.  New goal - Finish the first sock


Beatirx Potter Bunnies  by LCStitchery - I only stitched on this one day for a SAL and it has been put away again.


And that is it folks!
