Busy weekend!


Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!!

Here are my boys on Easter morning.

The weekend was so busy I had hardly any time to stitch.

On Halloween Rules I stitched one row on the moon.

And on Deepest Love I added one small green patch.

I am back at it today though since Brayden is back to school and I don't have to make food... constantly!!!!  I do not have any idea how I am going to be able to afford to feed 2 teenage boys if they eat this much at 7 and 4.  Win the lotto I guess.  Ha!

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Happy Stitching!

Update and a new start!

Hello my dear friends!

I hope you are all well!  We are all well here on PEI, the weather has been gorgeous and I actually got a sunburn the other day!  My first ever April sunburn!  Usually we would still have snow on the ground right now, not this year!

On to the stitching.

I am almost finished of the February block from The Joyful World by The Snowflower Diaries.  Actually I have been stitching on this today and I am gong to finish it before I go to bed tonight.

I finished off the world Halloween and started on the moon on Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.

Deepest Love by Mirablilia had some decent progress this week.  Between the gorgeous fabric and the pretty colors in the stitching I am really enjoying this one.

Gigi Giraffe from Brooke's Books Advent Animals is starting to make an appearance.  Speaking of giraffes, have any of you been following April the giraffe who is about to give birth?  I can't stop watching the live feed!  Luckily I have only been watching the last week or so and not months like some people.  I would be so sleep deprived!

And lastly I had a new start yesterday, ABC Christmas by LizzieKate.  I am stitching this one for the Christmas Ornie SAL blog.  I decided this year to chose a design that had all the themes for the year in it and this one fit the bill.  I am way behind since it took me so long to stitch The Gift so this is for January, the theme was Christmas Trees.  

Well it is 10:30PM right now and I really want to get the February block of The Joyful World finished so I better get to it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching!

I have a page finish! And a few other things

Hello stitchy friends!!

I hope everyone has been well.  Everyone here has been great.  Lately I have been busy keeping up with Brayden's busy schedule.  I don't know what we will do once Thomas starts joining things too!

But I do have a little bit of progress to share.

I have finished page 5 on Pitbulls!  It was a quick one, only 1 column.

Look how close I am to finishing The Gift!  I can't wait to get this one finished.

And yet again I have another one close to a finish.  February from The Joyful World SAL only has a little left to stitch on it.  Those ducks turned out so sweet!

And last little bit of progress was on Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  The last day I stitched on it I added the rest of the a, the H and the start of the e, the W tree and all the border, it was guild night so I was a little more productive than normal.  I am absolutely loving this one!

Thank you to each and every one of you who stop by and leave me likes and comments.  You all make my day that much brighter!

Happy Stitching!

A little update


It has been pretty quite around these parts lately so I have managed to get some stitching done for a change!

Here is The Gift by Blackberry Lane.  I stitched on this yesterday so it is actually a bit further I just don't have a picture uploaded yet. But I do on Instagram if can't wait to see it and want to have a look now, @khristine_doiron

I am back to my old tricks, stitching headless things.  Going to try to remedy that today.  This is February from The Joyful World SAL by the Snowflower Diaries.

Lastly I started #16, Gigi Giraffe from the Advent Animals by Brooke's Books.

I hope you all are getting lots of stitchy time in!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching!
