Twice in one month

Wow, I'm making a second post in the same month! I finished a page on The Astronomer. I have a little bit more to do and I will be completely done. I am shooting for the end of this year to finish it. Wish me luck.




Thanks for stopping by.

Has it been that long?????

Wow! I can't believe that much time has passed. Well, I have been busy stitching. I have kept up with the Linens and Threads Mystery Sampler. Here it is up to November.




Close up


I am almost done on this page of The Astronomer. After it I only have 3 more pages to go and then it is done. 


This is a little pattern that I travel with. I take it to work and stitch on it during my lunch time. I really love how it is turning out.

So that is it. This is what has been keeping me busy. I'll try to post more often.

Thanks for stopping by.

Finishes of a Sort

They are not complete finishes, but I have finished the June row for the Mystery SAL. I love the bees a lot.




I not only have a page finish on The Astronomer, but a row finish also. I only have one more row and it will be completed. I feel like the end is in sight.


Thanks for stopping by.

The End of May

Well I finished the May band in the SAL and then worked on The Raven Queen for the rest of the month. I have to say I had a real hard time with this band. Picking which colors to use where and once I decided I found that part of it looked like a one eyed alien robot.



I quite a bit done on RQ. For June I will work on the Astronomer after I finish the June band.


Thanks for stopping by.

Still Plugging Away

I have another page finish on The Astronomer. I have a partial page to finish off this row and then the last row of the pattern to have it finished. The last row are half pages so hopefully I'll get this finished this year. I am going to continue my rotation with the Mystery SAL, the Raven Queen, and this one.




I realized that I had not posted the finished April for the SAL so here it is. May should be out in a few days.


I hope to get a little more done on the Astronomer before I have to put it up for the SAL. 

Thanks for stopping by.

April Has Arrived

And I don't mean just the month. The April installment to the Linens & Threads Mystery SAL has arrived. Before I show you that I'm going to show what I was stitching on between March and April.

I gave Raven Queen some attention. I actually got a lot done on her. I decided that after I finish the SAL monthly piece I'm going to rotate to either Raven Queen or The Astronomer. So here is where I stopped on her before I started on April.



Now here is where I am on April since starting it yesterday. I'm half way done with it. Hopefully I can finish it completely by the end of this week.


Once it is done I'm going to put The Astronomer on the stand and work on it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Update of the Mystery SAL

Well, I have caught up. I finished March this past weekend and am now waiting for April to come out. I am stitching it on 40 ct. Lakeside Vintage Quicksilver. I am using a mix of DMC and silks. I like how this is coming along. Hubby even comments on it.


We went to the Woodlawn Plantation Needlework Show on Sunday. Lots of beautiful stitching. I even put in my Wherefore Art Thou. Didn't place but they did put it right on the door to the dining room so everyone who goes to lunch there can see it. There didn't seem to be as many entries this year. One room upstairs was completely empty. They usually have all the bedrooms filled with stitching. Maybe next year there will be more. We need to get the word out for next March - send your stitching to be exhibited.

Thanks for stopping by.
