HAED Rotation

Thursday, January 1, 2015


One of my so called resolutions this year is to post more here. I have really be slacking.

I have set up a rotation for 2015. I will be focusing on the 4 Spanglers that I am stitching for my kids.

January----The Universe in a Jar---for Jessica

February---Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate---for Sabrina

March--- Medieval Shelf---for JR

April---Play Ball---for Matthew

May---The Universe in a Jar

June---Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate

July--- Medieval Shelf

August---Play Ball

September---The Universe in a Jar

October---Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate

November---Medieval Shelf

December---Play Ball

I am also in a competition with 2 other stitching friends to see who can go the longest without a new start this year.  Must stay focused, must stay focused.

This is my starting point today on The Universe in a Jar.

I hope everyone has a very happy, stitchy, stashy year this year.

Till next time

It's been awhile.

Hello everyone.

It has been a long time. I have been stitching just haven't been motivated to blog. My friend Scott has started a stitching blog which can be seen at http://tattoodstitchingplace.blogspot.com. This is what motivated me to post again.

My latest obsession is Travelers by Myles Pinkney. I started it on 7/21/14. It is 2 over 2 on 25 count Lugana.  Progress pictures below.

Only blogger knows for sure why it won't let me put these pictures in rows 3 across. Oh well.

I have also begun collecting needle minders. My collection is growing slowly but surely.

This is not the entire collect just what I have out at this time.

If you want some unique and wonderful needle minders check out


Okay I have bored you enough for now. Hopefully will see you soon.

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.
