Hello friends!

I am late this month but I actually have a valid excuse this time!  My job went from 12 hours a week to 40ish hours a week so my time for anything has been cut.  I haven't officially accepted the job so I am going to give it a go for a month or so then decide if a full time job will work for our family.  So far so good though!

Now on to the orts!
Pretty skimpy :(

I had one finish this month.  Deborah Donkey by Brooke`s Books.  Only 1 to go!

Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Designs.  My goal was to add 600 and I added 1507!  I know I won`t get that many in again this month but I am going to try for 900 or a page finish.  Whatever comes first.

Rudolph Reindeer by Brooke`s Books.  My goal was to finish him and I am very close so my goal will remain the same.

Spring Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkins.  I had no goal for this but I did manage to finish the second row.  My goal for this will be to finish the block I am stitching on right now.

April from The Joyful World SAL by The Snowflower Diaries.  My goal was to finish the bunny and I only got his bottom half stitched.  New goal is to finish this.

Manger Ornament by Alessandra Adelaide.  My goal was to add 200 stitches and I added 210.  I am going to keep my goal at 200 stitches.

So for all that stitching I managed to finish stitching another planet for the Semi Sane Stitches Facebook group.

I also received a couple badges from The Ultimate Cross Stitch Group for completing some SALs.

And another from the Semi Sane Stitches.  This one was a SAL where each letter in your name had a value so a=10, b=20 and so on.  And then you doubled your number... I had to stitch 2260... and they all had to be on Hannah Lynn, which is why I made such great progress on her.

And a few pictures of my boys.  Tom turned 6 this past month and here he is opening gifts at his party.  Just a little excited :)

Here is Bray at the Heritage Fair at his school.  His grade had to take in an artifact that had to do with their family history.  He chose to take a cream can that came from his great grandparents farm.  They would take the cream to the creamery once a week and to keep it cold between trips they would keep the can in the brook.

So I guess that is it for me.  I have to work in the morning so I best head off to bed.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Beautiful stitching Kristine!

    Lovely to see the pictures of Tom and Bray.

    How exciting that Bray was able to take the cream can along to his school ...... that’s a real great link to his family!
