Christmas Project: SAL Update 2


 

I actually managed to work a bit of stitching into my schedule! 

The nearest craft store no longer carries waste canvas, so I ordered some online. As of yesterday, it had not arrived. Determined to get started on this project, I searched through the cross-stitch fabrics I have here at home and found a perfectly-sized piece of 28-Count Evenweave. I chose to use that instead of the holly fabric shared in our last update.

This project is #32 in the Santa Designs section of the book 501 Cross Stitch Designs by Sam Hawkins. 

I do hope you will stop in and see the lovely projects everyone else is working on!

Christmas Project: SAL Update 1


I will be taking a brief break from Twilight Duel. However, there is a Christmas project I will be working on as soon as I am able to pick up more waste canvas. It is hard to see in this photo, but the white fabric is a holly print. The project is small enough to travel with and to work on during my lunch break.

Please stop by to see what everyone else has been working on. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update #28

Another 3 weeks have flown by without a single stitch added to Twilight Duel. There are so many demands on my time right now, when I do finally have the time in the evenings, I do not have the energy.

So, I may switch to a smaller project to work on during my lunch breaks throughout the week and have something to show for our October 17th update.

I do hope you will stop by to see what everyone else is working on!

Thanks for stopping by!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update #27

Today I should finally have some time to get some stitching in! Unfortunately, I still have no progress to share. 

I do hope you will stop by to see the progress other members of our Stitch-Along have made.

Our next update will be on September 26th.

Wishing you all some happy stitching time!

Twilight Duel: SAL Update #26

I have no progress to share on Twilight Duel for this update. 

One of my boys has left the nest, so to speak, and I have been busy transitioning his bedroom into a guestroom/craft area. It is still a work in progress, but here are a few before and after pictures.

Knowing I have never had a "girly" room, my husband vetoed my suggestion to paint the room blue, and selected the lilac color I was also considering.

(The shadows in the room make the paint appear darker than it actually is in the photo above. The picture below is more accurate.)

We added a daybed that has a second mattress underneath to provide additional sleeping accommodations for guests.

This room is much brighter than the room I have been stitching in, so I am excited to get to work on Twilight Duel.

I do hope you will stop by to see what the other talented bloggers in our stitch along have been up to! We are in different time zones, so if a post is not up, please check back later.


Thanks for stopping by!
