Like a lot of other stitchers around the world I am doing Linen & Threads Mystery SAL. I finished January last night and am starting on February today.

I am stitching it on Lakeside 40 ct. Vintage Quicksilver. My fibers are Soie D'alger 3325, Gloriana Olallieberry, DMC 3041, & DMC 3834. I will be introducing a few more colors in the other bands as they come along. You can find the SAL patterns here and there is a Facebook group for it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Another One Down

I finished page 19 for the HAED Challenge #4 last night. I am so happy I found the cross country method of stitching these BAPS. To be able to finish a page in about 26 days is pretty good in my book.

I only have 2 full pages left to the row and then the last row is half pages. I really think I might get this done this year. I get more and more excited the closer it gets.

Thanks for stopping by.

New Cooking Toy

I asked for and received from my in-laws for Christmas an Air Fryer. I've made a few things so far but today was one of the best. I did fried chicken thighs with NO oil. They turned out great. My hubby loved them.

This is my air fryer. The GoWise 2.75. It is the smaller air fryer. I had to do the thighs in several batches.

And here is my chicken. Nice and crispy. Yummy!

About Halfway

The beginning of this month saw the start of Challenge #4 for HAED. So I started page 19 for it. This challenge is to just stitch however you want. So I'm back to my cross country style. I figure I'm about halfway through the page.

The black thread on the left shows where the page begins. Now to get back to stitching. I hope to get a big chunk done this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by.

Under the Wire

Just finished page 18. I wanted to get it done before the end of the year and I just made it.

Only 9 more pages to go. Maybe I can actually finish this in the new year.

Thanks for stopping by.

I finally finished page 17 of The Astronomer. Now I have something I can post. I am stitching on another thing but it is a Christmas gift so I can't show it here.

Now here is page 17.

I have 4 full pages and then 7 half pages and I'll be done. Maybe sometime next year????

Thanks for stopping by.

It's Been Too Long

I got hung up on doing the HAED Challenge #3. It was a challenge to try out parking and yes it was a challenge! I was determined to complete it, but it really slowed me down. Now that it is done maybe I can get some other stitching done. Here are a picture of the halfway point.

Having all the threads hanging down drove me crazy. Sometimes there were even more than what is in the picture, but hey, at least I tried it. Now I know that I do not like it and can go back to the cross country method.
