An Overdue Update

Well, I have a lot to share today :)

A little while ago I was fortunate to win a prize in Carol's birthday giveaway. It arrived last week and I can't wait to sit down and spend some time with these charts! Thank you Carol :)


Yesterday was a new moon ~ which brings this month's TUSAL update...


There's quite a bit of yellow's & green's from my checkerboard & light blue's & whites from my new start. It's funny, I'm feeling a little obsessive about my clippings now, I kept them all gathered up from the stitching I did at the hospital and had to add them to the container when I got home! Is that weird?? LOL

And a BoInk update too...


I didn't pick it up this weekend, and probably won't until the end of the month. I decided to do a new start for the Olympics and will probably only stitch on that for the duration of the games.

And my checkerboard...


I'm so close to a finish on this I can almost taste it!! This was the piece that came to the hospital with us last week, so it got a lot of attention. Unfortunately I ran out of the gold (with about 12 stitches left in that color of course!), so I need to get to Micheal's before I can finish it up. Then I'll have to focus on getting the playing pieces stitched.

I decided to start the DH's North Pole stocking (The Cross Stitcher Aug '09) for my Olympic Stitch-A-Thon. Unfortunately there wasn't much stitching time this weekend, so here's where we sit after the weekend...


So far a fun piece! I definitely have to pay attention, so far the frogs have visited a bit and I have to do a minor adjustment for a miscount that I didn't notice, but I think it should all work out. Must Pay Attention!

And if you've made it through all that, thanks for dropping by friends, and have a fantastic week!

Lovely prize you won. Your stitching looks great too.

So glad it arrived safely, Nicole! I have the chart, too, and have already stitched the one with Santa pulling the little fox (of course I haven't gotten around to finishing it yet!!).

Your WIPs are coming along so well--I'll bet you'll finish up that checkerboard this week!

You've been a busy girl! You ARE almost done your checkerboard :o) It would figure that you would run out of floss at the very last.

Congrats on your winnings!

BoINK is looking great.

OMG I would so want to finish up that checkerboard. It would bother me so much it being that close to finished!

Great new start.
