SAL day

Here goes another attempt to post this.

The last few weeks have had limited stitching time.  Two conferences, a semi-annual meeting and a friend's funeral.  None of this is conductive to trying to stitch, let alone sleep some nights.  For May I have been trying to do May Mania, only my versions was to work on WIPs, not new starts.

Some photos have ben shown already but this is fresh for the SAL group.

Finished pieces up first.


Halloween #1

Halloween #2

Now for the non-finished.

Stars and Stripes
Almost ready for the stars in the sides

Moonlight Madness

Not a lot of progress but it's been a  loooooong time
since I have stitched on it.

This has been handy for the time
not taking notes at one of the conferences.

Don't foget to check out the other stitchers.

Another 500 stitches into Stars and Stripes
all the red border so far.
Those two white triangles still have a lot of unstitched area.

I have been busy working on WIPs and I have three finished ones.  Stitching has been hard since I was out of town and am busy with several other projects and not getting enough sleep most days.  Oh yes, there is the hubby who needs care and feeding, the cats and the outdoor work (which is horrid this time of year, it seems like we mow every few days) as well as the grandsons - we still have not made it to one baseball game yet.

But here are the three finished pieces.

Gobble is finally done.

 One Halloween piece is for one daughter 
and the other is for the other daughter

Both are from Blue Ribbon Designs which actually
 has more squares in the pattern.

FOrgive the wrinkles in all, no time for ironing right now.

My May mania is strictly working on WIPs.  I have too many for the moment and I need to finish up some.  I'll have photos later this week-end.
