Finally Getting Into It

So I decided to get over it and pull out the Christmas on the Beach yesterday. I was going to try to see if I could get into it again. I finally made progress and my needle just took off and said Okay Okay I'm going. It's a struggle cause there is just so many other things I want to be working on. Mom really loves this design and I just gotta get it finished. I'm still getting over this stupid cold so yesterday Jeremiah and Mom went down to visit Grandma Faust and I stayed home. Which means I was alone. Now if you know me you know that NEVER happens. So I was kinda shocked. I caught up on my email and then sat down to watch some TV. I got a ton of stitching done. It was actually very nice and enjoyed my day even with my cold.

As you can see I really did get a lot done. It really moved for me finally when I reached that top corner. Then I could easily pick where I wanted to stitch next. It throws me off cause there is a lot of half stitches and a lot of different thread amounts. One place I use 4 strands one place 2 one place back to 4. Oh well it's finally moving along.

This morning I sat down to do my morning check of Google Reader and seen this gorgeous stack of Biscornu's that make a Christmas Tree. Great another thing I want to be stitching on. But I know I don't have the red and green aida on hand. So I'm going to add it to my WIPocalypse goal list. Speaking of that I had noticed several people talking about 2012 SALs already. So I started checking them out. I found 3 that I joined in for next year. I can't wait to start. If you go to the tab at the top that says Goals and SALs it has links to go to them. I can't wait to start!


  1. Wow, you really did make a lot of progress on the WIP for your Mom. Great job.

    I hope you get over your cold soon. I've been battling some sort of respiratory bug... coughing all the time. Not fun.

    What SALs are you joining?

  2. Thanks Meari. I think I'm finally on the road to recovery. The cough is the worst part I think cause it hurts your whole body. Fred (hubby) asked me if the cough was coming from my toes I was coughing so hard.

    There is a tab at the top of my blog that shows my Goals and SALs. Let's see though I'm joining the WIPocalypse, TUSAL, and International Hermit and Stitch Weekend. Stitching on the 3rd weekend, new moon, and full moon right now haha.

  3. I absolutely LOVE that "Thankful Critters" one! I just may have to attempt to tackle that one! Glad you are starting to feel better. I am currently on week 3 of the lingering cough. I know what Fred means about the "coming from your toes" thing...this has been such a deep, painful cough! I am just ready for it to go away!

  4. Anonymous please please tell me who you are. :) I have no idea.


Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate comments and Thank you for taking time out of your life to care whats going on in mine.
