Wednesday WIP photo- just posted late

Wednesday WIP photo- just posted late

I was really worried about posting the Wednesday WIP this week because I hadn’t worked on any stitching at all during the week. And then I got a Netflix disc in the mail on Wednesday and finished Doctors 8 and 9 and started 10 (released that day) and I’m feeling pretty good about the progress. I do need to take some time and finish making blocks and rows though. I don’t think I’m going to piece the rows together yet because until I see the final border, I’m not sure if I want to have the numbers start from the bottom and go up or from the top and go down. Luckily the border will be released in 3 weeks. I could have this finished by the end of summer ūüôā

The second sampler I completed. These were meant to be matching samplers for my boys, I thought they would look so cute in their bedrooms – now it will have to be dorm rooms or their own apartments.

I didn’t feel like I got a lot of stitching done this month. I did get my stash room cleaned so that counts for something, right?

Finished my Jody Purple Sampler ornament

Due to technical difficulties with my SharePoint class, I had 2 hours of uninterrupted stitching time at my desk (hey, they could have fixed the server at any minute) so I needed something small that I could work on without using frame. ¬†My Purple Jody Sampler ornament was on the WIPocalypse list so I grabbed it. ¬†And finished it – more to come on the WIPocalypse post but here’s a picture for now….

First TUSAL post of the year

First TUSAL post of the year

This is my Ort Jar, the fact that I actually have stuff in it this early in the years has a lot to do with Measi’s WIPocalypse. ¬†Measi also helped me find TUSAL¬†– the totally useless Stitch-along.
At the end of the year, all the Orts in the jar go into an ornament for my tree with a small tag for the year.

Winter Horse at the start of November

Winter Horse at the start of November


So here we are at the start of November, I’m proud of how well I’ve done concentrating on the Carousel Horses but I’m definitely ready for a different stitching project. ¬† ¬†Winter is getting close to being finished but I’m so tired of stitching on it right now. ¬† Maybe I’ll toss in a Christmas ornament. ¬†However, I’ve done so well. ¬†I can make it for 2 more months. ¬†After all, it’s only 7 more weeks.
