first TUSAL of 2016 and some weekend stitches

January 9 was the first New Moon of 2016, and that means our first totally useless SAL post. Here is my faithful froggy with this month's basket of orts. Lots of pretty colors in there.

On Friday, I took part in my first Friday Frolics, thanks to kitten stitching's blog. I decided to stitch on Moon Garden by Blackbird Designs. This is where I ended up. The colors are totally off in this photo. The photo in my previous post is much closer to the actual colors. I don't know how this happened!

On Saturday, I picked up my Autumn Quaker Sampler to work on. This is a piece that I really want to finish soon. I love the colors and I love working on it.

And finally, on Sunday, I re-started Quaker Christmas II. I didn't get very far, but I am thinking that this will be a long term labor of love. Slow and steady.

I feel really good about the things I accomplished this weekend. I worked on the three pieces that I wanted to work on and made some progress on each. I haven't set any goals for this week...maybe tomorrow...

Thanks for taking the time to visit today...happy stitching!
