Week 2 of my UFO

I haven't done very much stitching lately. I didn't stitch at all for the past 3 days so I am not progressing on this as fast as I would like. I'm going to put a few hours on it tomorrow because I can't stitch on Tuesday. On Wednesday I hope to pick it back up again and work on it a lot to hopefully get this 5th section done before the end of the weekend.

I signed up for my first RR today. I am excited about this because I have never been involved in one before. My first post date is May 1 so I have plenty of time to get my bits sorted and stitch the first peice on my own before I mail it off. We are doing the Margaret Sherry Cats Calendar and it should take 1 year. I also signed up for a pinkeep exchange. They look really cute and quite interesting to make. So I should enjoy this project. I am just waiting for my Just Because exchange, but that shouldn't be here until April 4 if everything worked out right.

Spring Cleaning

I've started off my Spring cleaning this year with all my stitchy stuff. I have put all my finished projects rolled up in one drawer, my unused pieces of aida in another drawer and all the accessories in another. All my charts are in their own spot too. I saved the DMC for last because I knew that would take forever. So I went through all my colours, wrote down the ones I needed, went and bought them all. Wound them up on their bobbins, put them away and went through my checklist again to find that I still needed 13 colors. So I just need to get those colors, wind them up then I'm done. Now I can get back to my stitching! Whew!

My current WIP, former UFO

This is The Last Supper. I started working on it in the summer of 2004. It is 6 pages. The first 3 took me 6 months to complete. I got bored of it so decided to work on something else for now but never went back to it until recently. I've completed another page which took me just over 2 weeks! So it should be done in no time. But first I am taking the next couple of nights to organize all my stitchy stuff and put in order what I am going to do next, that way my projects will be ready to start. (again)


Welcome to my Blogger. I hope you enjoy your visit. In the coming weeks I should be adding more and more things. I plan on adding my current WIP that was a UFO, I plan on adding pictures of all my finished works and I also plan on posting completed projects that I am interested in selling or swapping. For now, I'll add a picture of my latest finish. It's also my favorite finish of all time that I have seen by anybody! It's a Heaven and Earth Design, the artist is Selena Fenech and the picture is title Small Things. I stitched it on 25 ct evenweave 2 over 1. It took me 15 months. It would have taken me much quicker but I was working full time. I was half-way finished her when I quit my job, then it took me 3 months to do the other half of her. I am going to do more HAEDs, but for now I'm going to complete my 3 UFOs then do a Christmas advent calendar.
