HAED Rotation

Sunday, July 8, 2018


Apparently my knitting bug has kidnapped my stitchy bug & is refusing to return him. No stitching has occurred in the past 3 weeks and I'm not sure it will in the near future.
But that doesn't mean that no stitching has been happening. Just stitching of a different sort. This is what I've been up to the past 3 weeks.

Boom Shawl- almost ready to bind off


 Drys Shaw

 Halfway point

Boom Shawl-completed.

Moon River-new start.

Hopefully my stitchy bug will return before the next update but I'm not holding my breath.

I am doing this SAL with a lot of talented people. Please be sure to jump over and see the amazing things they are stitching.

Good morning stitchy friends. Time to share another stitchy update. Can't believe it has been 3 weeks already. Where does the time go. I thought once I retired I'd have lots of time for stitching and knitting. Hmmm still not enough hours in the day. If I didn't have to sleep or clean house I would have more time. If anyone knows how to do that I would love to know. Okay I've babbled long enough. Time to get to why you are here.

This was 3 weeks ago. Play Ball Randal Spangler HAED

This is today
Not as much progress as I had hoped but every stitch counts.

This is what has been distracting me from my stitching for the past 3 weeks.

Meet Penny our new Irish Setter puppy. She is 11 weeks old. I forgot how much work puppies are LOL.

I have also been knitting a lot. I seem to be addicted to dishcloths lately.

I have probably bored you to death by now.  I am doing this SAL with a group of very talented stitchers. Please check out the fabulous stitching that they do.  If you are interested in joining us you can contact Avis for details.

Till next time. Stitch on

I have been stitching a lot the past 3 weeks and this time I managed to stay on one project. Well sort of. One stitching project and some knitting sneaked in also.LOL.

I have been stitching exclusively on Play Ball  Randal Spangler HAED for the last 3 weeks. Here is where it was:

And here it is now.

I'm really pleased with my progress this time.

Lets see how the next 3 weeks goes.

I am doing this SAL with a bunch of talented folks. Be sure to check out the beautiful stitching that they are doing.

If you are interested in joining the SAL contact Avis and she can give you the details.

I am really enjoying being part of this SAL. Most of the time I am staying focused on one project although every once in a while another one sneaks in. I made really good progress on Play Ball during the last 3 weeks. I stitched on it exclusively until May 4 when I had to give in to my nerd side and get out Master for May the 4th Be With You. Now I am back to Play Ball.

3 weeks ago it looked like this.

Now it looks like this.

Hopefully some day it will look like this.

There are a lot of talented people I am doing this SAL with. Hop on over and take a look at the wonderful projects they are working on

I'm back. All moved in and the main parts of the house are done. My craft room on the other hand. Well we just won't talk about that right now.

I did get some stitching in but as usual I have had stitchers ADD and have been stitching on 3 projects. I keep them by my chair and just pick up which ever one I feel like working on.

I don't have before pictures since my camera has stopped talking to my laptop. Here are some progress pictures I took with my  phone.

First up The Universe in a Jar. Last time I worked on it this is what it looked like. Haven't touched it in about a week.

Then there is Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate. Here is where I am right now.

Last but not least Play Ball which I am currently obsessed with. After all tis the season.

There are a lot of us doing this SAL. We all work on different projects. Please check out all of the other talented stitchers. If you are interested in joining us please contact Avis for details.

I have had a lot of stitching time so got something accomplished. It has been snowing a lot here and when that happens lots of stitching happens.

I had a page finish on The Universe in a Jar

Then more progress happened

All in all a good 3 weeks.

Don't know how much I will get done this month as we will be moving.

Please don't forget to check out all of the other amazing projects being stitched by my SAL partners.

Also want to say hello to the newest member Hayley.

Till next time.
