December TUSAL


TUSAL time again!  How are we at the end of the year already?!  My little ort jar looks hungry doesn't it?  Oh well January will hopefully bring more stitching time for me.

Now onto the progress

Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Designs.  My goal was 600 stitches and I put in 666.5!  My goal will stay the same at 600 stitches.

Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  My goal was to finish the Howl block and get started on the last block but I did not come even close.  New goal will be to finish the Howl block.

Deepest Love by Mirabilia.  My goal was to finish the page I was working on and I am close but didn't quite manage.  Do you see where the line is on the edge of her arm?  That is the page end so really I just have a little bit more of her hair to stitch and it will be finished.  My new goal will be to finish that page and the white thing in her hand.

Frog Biscornu by Casey Buonaugurio Designs.  My goal was to finish 2 frogs and I only got about halfway there.  New goal is to finish this.

Spring Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkins.  My goal was to finish the fifth block and I did!  Top row is finished!  No new goal since I don't know when I will stitch on this again.

ABC Christmas by LizzieKate.  My goal was to finish the word Angel and I did.

I also made a good start on Yule Log so my new goal will be to finish it.

New start #1 was Alistair Aligator by Brooke's Books.  Goal is to finish him by next time.

New start #2 was Deborah Donkey by Brooke's Books.  New goal is to get all the white stitches stitched on her.

And new start #3 was Disney Mickey by Digipoint.  No goal for this one as I am not sure when I will get back to it.

Heather Hemstitch and Hardanger I have decided this is my stitching guild night project as it was originally a guild project and I need the teacher's help with it.  There are quite a few new stitches that I have never done and need assistance with.  Last month I completed the top section and I think I will only have one meeting before next TUSAL so my goal will be to finish that next section.

Draft Horses This one had no goal but I managed to add 231.5 stitches.  New goal is to add another 200 stitches.

Crazy Socks by Rosewood Manor did not have a goal and I am not even sure when I had last stitched on it but I did finish the stitching on the first sock and added a bunch more stitches to the border.

Phew!  I stitched on a lot of things last month.  Between Novem, which required me to stitch on 9 different projects and Stitching Bingo I was busy trying to get all my stitches in!  But I did have some time for fun with my boys.  Here they are having a chat with Santa.

And finally the badges I earned this past month 

This was a fun one.  Each day there was a clue and you had to find the answer in the word search, which was a number, then stitch that many stitches.  

Sorry it is so long.  It has literally taken me days to finish between work and wrapping presents and Christmas concerts.  I am tuckered out!  I hope you all have Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season!

Happy Stitching!
