August 2016: Update

Hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus
 Following up on last month's stitching I completed the back of the scissor fob from Creepy Crawly.

Hosted by Measi Musings

While I didn't make an official Olympic Post in July, I set a goal to finish the border of Christmas at Hollyberry Farm. Not only is the border done but with some frogging and minor adjustments I got the tree in as well. Yeah!! Just about 20-30 minutes of stitching and this can be moved to the finished basket/drawer.

My other August project was a new start from The Scarlett House.

I am so close to a finish. I have been concentrating on the border for Christmas at Hollyberry Farm and it's almost done. Now to add some more berries to the leaves.

July 2016:Smalls SAL check-in


Well we are half way through our SAL for this year and I'm a little behind in my stitching. Finishing has barely made a showing. So many plans so little time.  This month I managed to get a few things stitched.

I am taking part in Jo's Halloween SAL, The theme for July is Witch's Accessories. No good witch would be found alive without her cauldron.

Embellishing Bits

Next, I started Creepy Crawly, Blue Ribbon Designs. There are 4 pieces to this spooky stitching set.

The other SAL on my list for this year is The Christmas Ornie SAL. My ornament for July is from The Needle's Work. I'm not sure if Dawn is still designing. This was one of her yearly ornaments. It's been in my stash for awhile, I think I picked it up at a stash to stash sale. I'm very happy to have it stitched finally, although the gold thread was almost my undoing. It's not showing up well in the picture but its in 1st, 2nd, and 4th rows. It really sets off the first two rows.

I also put together Cora's  Rose Teaspoon Pincushion.

July 2016: Wipocalypse update


Two more motifs to stitch and then the border, and my Christmas at Hollyberry Farm will be finished. I stitched most of the tree awhile back, but it's in the wrong place. I need to see if I can  compensate or if I need to frog, I've already taken out some of the leaves, hoping to see a way to leave in the rest of my stitching. This is my current progress:

July: Gifted Gorgeousness 2016



This is not a great picture but I wanted to get my update in, albeit a few days late. I picked up Christmas at Hollyberry Farms again. The trees and reindeer just to the right of the 's' in
Christmas are new. I also finished the numbers and the 2nd-4th borders.
