Progress and New Going Ons

It's finally my lazy time and boy I've been stitching up a storm. Monday and Tuesday Dragon Eye came back on my QSnaps and I added 800 more stitches. Now I have 1,000 in...
Hubby and I thought it looks like the Cheshire Cat smile showing up haha. Yesterday I got started on the January Lizzie Kate Stamp...
I'm using 14ct oatmeal Aida for the Lizzie Kate Stamps that I got at a flea market with my mom. There was a lady from a nursing home selling all her cross stitch things. I got a table full of Aida and Mill Hill kit for $100 and should have been $300 plus easy. This oatmeal aida was a 2 yard piece. Love the way it's turning out so far.

I also wanted to tell you about a new SAL that I just heard about. The lovely Rachel over at Ten Hour Stitcher is going to host a new FF(Fully Finished) SAL. The idea is to finish some of those pieces we have hiding in a drawer. According to my side bar I have 53 things I want to finish!!! So pop over to Rachel's blog to find out more about that. It's supposed to start February 10th and then run the 10th of every month after that.

Also I received an email from Amanda from Cross Stitch Angel about a mini SAL to stitch up the Mill Hill Sea Turtle. We are going to start working on it Monday together though miles and miles apart. If we don't finish it Monday we will hopefully finish it Tuesday. So I'm looking forward to that. Here is where I am with that one right now...
I started this one for Jo's Longest Day SAL in 2017. I only have the 1 day of progress on it so far. So about time to finish it off. Plus it's on my Extreme Challenge 1 list. So we'll see how that goes starting Monday.

Have a great rest of your week and weekend. We might get snow this weekend and I can't wait. I love snow! Stay warm and safe.

Hi, that's a lot you need to finish my friend, have fun with the Sal. Can't wait to start the turtle with you Monday. Great start on that big project. Happy stitching!!!

Great stitching so far this week (so many blues!) and great minds with the fabric for the LK stamps; I stitched mine on oatmeal too so have to agree you totally made the right fabric choice!
Thanks for promoting and linking to the new SAL; maybe Sea Turtle could be one of your first entries? :)

You're really zipping along! I'm always afraid to finish my finishes because I don't want to mess them up, maybe a SAL would gather my courage.

You are so organised with your SALs. The oatmeal is a lovely colour, the blue does look great on it.

Your 2019 needle is certainly flying, long may it continue. Good luck with your SALs

Dragon's Eye is off to a really great start! Great deal on the fabric and charts! Sometimes you just luck out and are in the right place at the right time.

A 1,000 in for the Dragon, yay! I love seeing this one grow.
What a great find at the flea market. I actually have several MHs I've finished, I was on a roll!

Please tell me where you got the CSS for your progress bars? I had them on my blog for a long time but they stopped working for some reason. I'd love to put mine back!
