Busy Busy but a finish to report

I've been so crazy busy. We had a very nice Thanksgiving here in our home. Life has been going non stop it seems like since my last update. I did get to work on my canvas work class piece. I remembered to post on Instagram just hadn't sit down to do a blog post until now. Of course I just not realized I don't have a picture to share of my canvas piece so I guess that will wait till the next post. I did get the first 5 bands of the 26 done. It's fun to work on. Just need time haha. I also have put a few days of work into the Family Crest.

Anyway the reason I got on here to post was to share a finish...
(28) November 27th
A Year of Whimsy by Dimensions (Out of Print)
Stitched on Perforated Paper
Used Suggested DMC
Started whole project for DUCJC Jan 1st, 2016.
Took 5 Days.
I can't believe I only have one month left. I have enjoyed these guys so much! Plus I've stuck with finishing them up each month. I think that's the first time I've picked a monthly project and actually stuck with it the whole year haha.
Today we put away all our fall decorations. Now we have that just robbed look haha. Now we can get busy putting out the Christmas/Snowmen decorations. Fred (hubby) put out the front of the house Christmas lights yesterday. I just LOVE the bright colors and lights of this time of year. I'm getting more stitching time this time of year just need more blog updating time too haha. Hope everyone is doing well and had a Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate now.


  1. What a cute turkey finish! I like it! I also finished a year challenge, stitching the LHN Sheep virtues pieces. I will blog this week, and show them all. Working towards finishing them... It is my first time I also stuck with a year-long SAL. I am thinking about next year now! Hugs!

  2. Very dapper turkey and a great finish. They really have been super stitches - I think you're going to miss them!

  3. Congrats on the finish !! Life is always busy, it's just that we are greedy for more stitching time:)

  4. I totally understand how you feel with being busy recently... I feel just the same! Even had hardly stitching time, but I've started working on your gifted Let's Be Jolly snowman :) Love the turkey finish & have fun with all the Christmas decorations too ;)
