After photo IHSW

Today was Family Day (holiday) in Ontario. This is the after photo showing my progress over the weekend.

I completed the Eight Silver thimbles, even though I had to frog the letters. I noticed after stitching one evening that I used the wrong green.

I also started the Seven christmas charts. I'm adding a few more colours, instead of having all red and white charts. I will continue to stitch on this during my Tuesday night Stitcher's Club.

I have already added my TUSAL photo for February 21 because I will be out tomorrow night. 


Another IHSW is almost over.  This is the before photo of Xmas Stitching Days.  I only found time to stitch on Sunday and Monday.

I haven't decided if I'm going to add Nine buttons or stitch them like the chart shows. That's why they are not done yet.

Victorian Dollhouse hasn't seen the light of day for a few weeks. I'm finding it hard to rotate my projects. I wasn't seeing any progress on the Christmas Stitching Days because I was only stitching on it Tuesday nights at the Cross Stitcher's Club. Now that it is more than 1/4 of the way finished I will focus again on the dollhouse.

Frogs living in the my dollhouse

There were frogs living in my dollhouse.  I had to rip out all the pink walls of the living room.  The counting was off by one row.  I should learn to check more often, not wait until two sides of the project doesn't match up.  By then it is always too late.  I will continue to stitch tonight on Victorian Dollhouse, but here is an update on my progress so far.

Tuesday I will pick up Stitcher's Days of Christmas for a few days. I've always been a one at a time stitcher.  I'm not enjoying the rotational method, I'm finding it hard to concentrating on more than one project at a time.  I don't feel like working on my 3rd project Happy Stitching.
