WIP Wednesday 7-4-2018

Here we are, Wednesday again and time to show you my progress.  Even though it has been a busy week, I did get some quality stitching time in and I am quite happy with the progress.  I have been stitching on this piece for 6 1/2 weeks now and I feel that the end is in sight. 

Hope your 4th of July was a joyful one.

Another month is over!  I did get a good amount of stitching time this month and am officially more than half finished with Dreaming of Tuscany.  I think I am right on track to get it finished and framed before the Anniversary party.

WIP Wednesday 6-27-2018

Well, it's Wednesday again and time to check in and show you my progress.   We are at the 5 1/2 week mark.  Not very much stitch this past week.  Friday was spent cooking and baking for the weekend.  Saturday and Sunday was spent at a wonderful needlepoint class (more on that in a later post). 



On Saturday, John fell off a 10 foot ladder at the boat yard while getting the sailboat ready to go in the water.  He broke both bones in his right leg near the ankle.  Luckily, he had a friend with him who called 911.  John had surgery on Saturday evening, and I brought him home from Racine on Sunday evening and have been running and fetching for him ever since.  He has an external immobilizer on the leg and can't put any weight on it.  We see the doctor Friday and make arrangements for more surgery.

A Quick Finish

...Just in time for the 4th of July!  We did this cute little flag pin as a project at our guild meeting this evening.  I completed the project before I left the meeting!

WIP Wednesday 6-20-2018

And it's Wednesday again!   I am at the 4 1/2 week mark, but this past week, I had to do the emergency model stitching project, so I lost 5 days of stitching on this piece.  I did make some progress, though.  I have finished 3 out of 6 pages, but one of the pages left to do is solidly stitched, more stitching than any of the other pages.....I will keep on going! 

This coming weekend I have a Needlepoint class both Saturday and Sunday, so I will lose two more days of stitching on this piece, but at least there is steady progress!

IHSW Report




I stitched quite a bit this weekend.  Aside from having lunch with my Dad for Father's Day, I was truly a hermit and stitched and watched soccer all weekend.  You might think I would have made lots of progress on my focus piece.....but no.  I had to do some emergency model stitching!  Remember that project I did last month?  You can see it here.  Sadly, the Sue had some issues with the supplier and could not get the oval box she had been promised.  She had to change to a round box, which meant that the Alphabet Band that I had stitched was too short.  I quickly stitched up a new band for her, as well as a small scissors fob and got them in the mail to her so she can do the finishing and be ready for her classes.
