It was super busy my first holiday season at work and I got way behind in my blogging so I am trying to play catch up.
Please just pretend like it is still November and humor me while I pretend like I am not 2 months behind on my TUSAL.
So here is my jar. This picture wasn't taken on November 18th but I hadn't been doing any stitching at all so this is exactly what my jar looked like on November 18th.
And here are the projects that contributed to the jar:
Mothers And Daughters by The Victoria Sampler - My goal was to finish the rest of the verse I am close to doing so, only two more lines after this one. New goal will be to finish that verse once and for all and maybe 1 more band after that.
Larry Lion by Brooke's Books - My goal was to finish him and as you can see he isn't. New goal is finish him! And get the next one at least half finished.
ABC Christmas by LizzieKate - Apparently I didn't make a goal for this one last month but since I was trying to finish one word each month I am going to say that was my goal. And I did finish the word but not the little bit of evergreen branches that go next to it. New goal - finish this word and the next one.
Hannah Lynn by Hannah Lynn from Heaven and Earth Designs - My goal was to add 1000 stitches and while I didn't really keep track I am pretty sure I added about 600. New goal - same as last month, 1000 stitches.
Halloween Rules by LizzieKate - My goal was to finish block 4 and 5. That was lofty since I still haven't finished the third block! New goal - finish block 3 and 4
Deepest Love by Mirabilia - My goal was to finish her tail. That did not happen. And more than likely won't happen next month either because since this picture was taken I found a booboo. A big booboo. This chart has 3 different blended thread colors and what I usually do if I run out of symbols to stitch but still have blended thread left on my needles is I will neatly wind it up and stick it on my fabric and then write the symbols on my chart in order of needle left to right on my fabric. Well somehow I mixed two blended threads up. I know, shocking with my method of keeping track of them! <- sarcasm So you see on this part below how it goes white, light green, whitesh then darker green? Well the light green and the whitesh are backwards. And sadly that isn't the only section I messed up on. New goal - fix my booboo.
So that's all folks. Work has slowed down to a snails pace so I am back to regular stitching I think. And I will hopefully be back soon with a finish post and another TUSAL.
Halloween Rules - My goal was to be stitching on block 3 and I am and it is almost finished. New goal - finish block 4 and 5.
Deepest Love - My goal was to have her tail finished and get a start on her skin... who was I kidding with that?! New goal - finish that tail.
Hannah Lynn - My goal was another 500 stitches and I did add another 500! New goal - Since The Joyful World is finished Hannah Lynn is becoming a regular in my rotation until I get a page finish so I am going to up that 500 stitches to 1000.
Mothers and Daughters - My goal was to get 4 rows of the verse finished and I did! New goal - finish the rest of the verse.
ABC Christmas - My goal was to finish the next word I was working on and since I haven't shown this one yet here it is.
Well well well. It's been quite awhile since I have had a second to sit down and write a post. And in all honesty I really should be folding clothes right now but it can wait.
Actually Thomas really needs a bath so I am going to do that and be right back.
Ok that is done. I really have no idea how single moms do it.
So how have you all been? I am struggling to keep up with my blog reading but so far I am managing, kinda. Work is going quite well. My part time job turned into a full time job while one of the managers had to take a leave but she will be back in 2 more weeks so I will be back to part time and that is quite fine with me. My house is very neglected and I miss my family but the extra money right now is very nice.
On to the stitching!
Halloween Rules - I am actually quite a bit further on this block but I guess I haven't taken a picture lately. How I would love to have this hanging on my wall right now but hopefully it will be next Halloween.
So today is going to be my first day of work at my new job! It is in a little store at our local mall. It doesn't open until 9 am so perfect for me to get the kiddos to school and is only open until 9pm so no late nights.
I have been getting a little stitching done, not much but a little.
I am so close to finishing March on the Joyful World SAL. Another couple days, maybe even one day will finish it up.
Larry Lion - started and will hopefully be finished by next TUSAL
The Joyful World SAL - Well I didn't manage to finish this but I am close and will have it finished by next TUSAL.
Halloween Rules - Last month I had just started the orange border (which looks yellow in this picture) on the second block and I am very close to having it finished. So hopefully by next month I will be stitching on block 3.
Deepest Love - I finished her tail fin and most of the stitching above the highest vine. By next TUSAL I would like to get most of her tail stitched up to where her skin starts.
Hannah Lynn - I was hoping to get 500 stitches added and I was successful! So I am hoping for another 500.
Mothers and Daughters - I was hoping for 4 rows of the verse finished and while I have it cut off in this picture I only have about 1.5 rows so I am going for 4 rows again.
ABC Christmas - I added another word, "Ornament" and I have a good start on the next word and hope to have it finished by next month.
