The big project

Just to let everyone know that I am almost done with page 3 of my big project.  There are 9 pages so I think I'm making pretty good progress.   I will post some pictures out in the I love cross stitch album that will be created. 
I tried to stitch last night while dog-sitting my sister's 5 scotties, which excuse me sister but they DO all look alike  haha.... but I had forgotten the color code sheet, so I read my book instead and was in bed by 8:30pm.  Wild Friday night.

I must be nuts

I must be nuts....haha.  First I'm doing a pattern which has 9 pages to it.  Then a special friend says he likes dragons and so I purchased this dragon pattern to stitch and it's 12 pages long!!!!  I'm going to become a permanent fixture in my chair.  I'm sure once I'm done with both patterns they will be worth it but I certainly have my work stitched out for me.

While in Jacksonville Florida this summer I found a wonderful stitching shop, A Stitch in Time, and found this rooster pattern.  I have roosters in my kitchen thought this guy was cute.  I picked him up tonight from Joann's after framing.  Now onto the chicken wall.

My big project

This doesn't look like much but finally I have finished page 1 of my 9 page project.  The bottom right 10x10 took 3 attempts, I'd pull it out start again and still be off pattern.  I'm just glad that little square is done.  As you can see I've started page 2.

Christmas is done

I have finished my Christmas project and have it at Joann's for framing.  I'm now working on the biggest project I have ever undertaken.  The pattern is 9 pages and color changes like I have never worked with before.  It will be a challenge but then winter is coming so I might as well stitch.
Happy Stitching,
Mary, Ty, Grady & Lil

busy on Christmas

I'm trying my hardest to get my Christmas stitching project done.  Joann Fabrics has another 65% off coupon off on framing.  The problem??? I need fuzzy floss to finish it and don't know if I can find it locally. I'll keep looking.

First finished project 2011

I have taken a picture of my first project from 2011.  I've been rather lax because of all the books I have been reading but now I can start on that next project.  The right corner isn't stained it was wet when I took the it's on to Joann Frabrics who has a coupon for 65% off framing this week.

Never did I think

I never thought I would have a blog, but here I am with a blog.  I've started this to keep me on track with my stitching.  I have a project waiting for just a few finishing stitches and another waiting in the wings to start.  I find that trying to stitch in the summer is rather difficult with all the yard work that needs to be done, but it's about time I did some stitching.  Will try and add pictures as I finish each project.  I've also decided that I need to starting needle punch I love the patterns.
