WIP Wednesday 04/29/2015


In spite of a fun and busy week full of waltz lessons, student-parent conferences, family birthdays and my husband's corporate party, I did manage to make some stitching progress. 


As you can see in the photo above, I filled in more of the sky in the window section. Below shows how it looked last week.


Below is a picture I shared on April 1st. I managed a bit of progress this month.
Thank you for stopping by!

Oh - Heaven and Earth Designs has a 45% off sale on their charts through May 3rd for Mother's Day, if you are interested.

Last Week's Goals:
1. Complete 250 x-stitches on the HAED Santa & the Mouse chart (which is no longer available, but it is a part of this chart at Heaven and Earth Designs.) 251 stitches completed. Photos above.
2. Complete the block requested in exchange for my son's senior pictures. It is not done yet, but I have made a fair amount of progress. Soon...
3. 
Get as close to 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo as possible. Life being life, this did not happen. I do plan to make a weekly goal for writing so I continue working on this projects and complete a rough draft by the end of the year.
4. Share pictures of Sandra T.'s CQI UTS RR blocks and create a plan for the one I plan to embellish. I ended up with a LOT of posts this week. I will share this next week.
5. Share 1 Xmas Item a Month post on April 25th. (It is already typed up and ready to go!) Done! If you missed it the post is here

6. Link up with the Monday Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom No Cape on April 27th. (If you missed out on what was shared on Monday, April 20th, you may check it out here!) Done!
