january 20 - what i've been up to this week

I've actually managed to get some stitching done this week! Only small bits on some, but a start is a start!

We are doing a Lizzie Kate SAL at Every Stitch Counts...any design, as long as it is Lizzie Kate. I had way too many to choose from, but thought I would start with The Art of Aging Artfully. I've seen Joyce's updates on her blog and love how it looks. So here is my small start:


I also accepted Becky's BAP Challenge, and decided to stitch Quaker Christmas II from ByGone Stitches. I stitched Quaker Christmas a few years ago and love it, so thought this would be a nice companion piece. I am a very slow stitcher, so this will not be finished quickly! But maybe by the end of the year...we'll see!


This is February's cottage...part of the Monthly Cottages from CCN. I skipped January because I wanted to be able to display this one during the actual month...I'm usually always too late for that!


And last night I stitched some more on Dandy Dreams. I really love working on this piece!


This is the third weekend of the month, which means it is International Hermit and Stitch Weekend. This is the first time that I am participating in this and I am looking forward to having time to work on all these projects. I'm also joining a SAL tonight with some friends at Friendly Stitchers and I am really excited about that too.

I hope you all have lots of stitching time this weekend too. It's going to continue to be rainy here I'm afraid, so the perfect excuse to sit by the fire with a nice cup of tea and fabric and thread!

Thanks so much for your comments and for taking the time to visit!

  10. I am the same way that I like to start monthly projects way ahead of time so I can have them done in time to display.
