HAED Rotation

A Finish for DH

My husband is also a stitcher but doesn't have a blog. I publish his progress & finishes here. He recently finished Heavy Going Grizzley. I love it.


I had to change my March rotation. I will be working on Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate instead of Midieval Shelf. Hanging head in shame I started and did a whole page of Midieval Shelf going the wrong way on my fabric. I will be ordering another piece of fabric for it so it will move down in the rotation.
In January I made good progress on Waterhole Master by Penfound.

In February I made really good progress on Playball  Randal Spangler. This one I am stitching for my son Matt.

For March I will be stitching on Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate Randal Spangler.
This is my starting point. I am going to finish working down to the bottom. I prefer to stitch up and I started this one at the top for some reason (the cat).

Shoes Shoes Shoes

 Blog Hop 17

What’s your favorite footwear for stitching? Or perhaps I should say your favorite lack of footwear when stitching…

I had to giggle when I read this topic. I usually stitch barefoot or with just socks on. When I get home from work the first thing to go is my shoes (even before my coat).  I usually sit Indian style in my stitching chair (it is huge) so shoes or slippers won't work.

IHSW Progress

I made good progress on QS Literate Dragon which in one of the HAED BB SAL's this year. I so love stitching on this one.It is so bright and colorful. I only stitch on this on Saturday and Sunday so I am pleased with my progress. I started it on 1/5/13 and then had to restart on 1/12/13. So far I have put 2835 stitches in. I know this is not much by some stitchers standards but I am go with it because I don't consider it a race. I stitch because I enjoy it. Sometimes I do think to myself that I am not making much progress but remind myself that I am stitching for myself so it doesn't matter.

February TUSAL

I am trying to be better this year with posting my TUSAL each full moon. I had a really productive stitching month as you can see.

See the cute little frog pin cushion in the background. My daughter's best friend makes sock critters and she made me this cutie for my stitching table. His name is Freddie.
