November TUSAL

 Hey guys!!
TUSAL time again!
Here are my orts - 

And now onto the stitching!

Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Designs had a goal of 600 stitches.  And I did... 2023!  I surprised myself when I added up my stitches.  New goal will remain at 600 as I don't have as many days this month to stitch on her.

Halloween Rules by LizzieKate's goal was to finish the Brew Some Fun block and stitch half the Greet A Ghost block and I did it!  Actually the Greet A Ghost block is pretty much done so my new goal is to finish the next block and get started on the last block!

Deepest Love by Mirabilia.  My goal was to finish the page I am stitching on and I did not finish it so my goal will remain the same.

Noel 2013 by Le Chalet Des Perelles.  My goal was to finish it and I did!

Frog Biscornu by Casey Buonaugurio Designs.  My goal was to finish the first side and get started on the second side and I did!  New goal is to completely stitch 2 frogs.

Spring Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.  I had no goal as I hadn't stitched on this in a long time.  New goal is to finish the next block.

Hardanger Needlebook designed by the Needlenut.  This was a guild project that I hadn't finished so it started being the project I brought to guild meeting and I finally finished it!

ABC Christmas by LizzieKate.  This one had no goal as I hadn't stitched on it in awhile.  New goal is to finish the word Angel.

And that is what I stitched on this month.  I have a few new starts that will be started by the next TUSAL and I am also participating in a SAL that requires you to stitch on 9 different wips during the month so next TUSAL report will be even bigger.  So you have been warned!  

I earned a badge for a SAL I participated in.  This one you had a to stitch 1111 stitches for Rememberance Day.

Other than that there is nothing else much new with me.

Hope you are all well!

Happy Stitching!

Just some pictures

Hey guys!

Thought I would share some pictures now as my next post will be a TUSAL post and those are always very picture heavy so lets spread the love <3

First up will be some stitching because well this is a stitching blog after all.

I am getting so close to finishing Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  I think there are just 2 more blocks after this one.

And this Frog Biscornu by Casey Buonaugurio is going to be the death of me.  The pattern printed out so tiny and is so hard to read but I am getting there.  The first side only needs little hearts in the corners and it will be finished.

The most wonderful Mama in the whole world, mine ;), made this beautiful wall hanging for me.  It fits in in my kitchen perfectly.  Thanks Mama!

Fall colors on Prince Edward Island

My oldest bambino at his 4H Halloween dance

This one is from last night before we went trick-or-treating.  Also notice there are no leaves left on the trees and the grass has turned a not so pretty shade of brown :( winter is on it's way.  Also would like to note I was not for the scary clown costume...

And my youngest at a community Halloween party

I also earned a couple badges from a stitching SAL on The Ultimate Cross Stitch Group on Facebook.  For this SAL each day the amount of stitches you had to stitch for that day was revealed and thankfully there were 4 or 5 days at the end to catch up if you fell behind... I needed those days.

The first one was for making it to the halfway point

And this one was for completing

And I guess that is all.

Hope you are all well and getting lots of stitching time in!

Happy Stitching!
