Lots going on today
photo heavy

It's not actually snowing today but it's still winter.

Progress time

when ever I last stitched on it

and today

not much difference but some

just like on 12-31-2017
no progress

 whenever, probably December 2017

 as of this morning
I ran out of the green and then too many icy/snow/cold days
so the green is way behind

This was my January 1st start
finished a day or so later

I joined a group on facebook for Mill Hill kits
I dug this one out of the WIPs
Mondays are the day to stitch Mill Hills

Progress as of 1-21-2018

as of 12-31-2017

Finished !
sorry for the wrinkles


Mystery as of 12-31-2017

Mystery Sampler as of 1-21-2017

As you can tell my stitching during the last three weeks
has been hit and miss, scattered, unorganized, etc.
Time to get organized again.

Meanwhile, go see the photos from the others in the WIP SAL
maybe they were more organized than I was lately

Have a great week !

I changed the photo today.  I thought this painted canvas fit for this winter.  Everywhere seems to be having unusual weather for their winter.   And what better for those of with lots of snow but to stay home and stitch.

I do not have the name of the designer (or company), or the date this was copyrighted but the design itself is copyrighted.    Just enjoy the image for awhile.

Yes, it's snowing again!

No, it won't turn for me.

It's cold again, not sub-freezing but definitely cold.  The rain last night has turned to ice.  Now it's trying to snow. 

Worse yet - the Weather channel guy (Kim Cantore)  is in town.  That never bodes well.

Schools are closed.  Both needlework shops are closed as well as one of the yarn shops.

We have the grandson that is in school, for the day.  Work for other things is basically done, time to stitch.

My cat's resolution

Who knows what he wanted at 4 am this morning

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

We'll start with a "resolution"
I thought it was cute.

I joined a new-to-me SAL
Mill Hill Stitching
Mondays are Mill Hill Stitching days
So his my first Mill Hill WIP

Not sure when I started this and got this far
I know I didn't touch it in 2017

As of Tuesday morning
It has joined the others in the WIP bag
She'll come back out next Monday
It may be a slow method but it will ensure it gets attention.

Saturday, January 6, 2018

First order of the day:

Being grateful for life, for others, etc
Sets a wonderful tone for each day

A few resolutions to pass on over the next few days:


Grandson is doing fine
Still don't know what bothered him
no fever, no sniffles, no cough

Friday, January 5, 2018

Best laid plans often take a backseat to watching over a sick grandkid.  One them had a mysterious upset tummy and associated problems.  We have spent quite a bit of time this week watching Star Wars (from 1-6, either the episode order or the order they were released - your choice) in no particular order other than what the grandson felt like watching.  It did give some stitching time but no computer time.

Resolutions soon.
