 Lately I have been having trouble sticking to one project. I know you are shocked by this LOL. My mojo kept trying to run away. I think I have found the solution. I came across 2 old old old projects and guess what my mojo came running home.

I think I'll work on these for awhile to see what happens.

First is Santa of the Forest by Lavender and Lace

The second is The Four Seasons by Marjolein Bastin

Back at the beginning of time well HAED time that is I started this on 2/13/2010. It was the one that got me started with HAED . I worked on it pretty regularly for awhile. Then I discovered Randal Spangler's wonderful art and this poor fellow kinda fell off the scene. The last time I stitched on him was 10/24/2018.
Long story short Doby escaped from the stitching closet and was poking around in the basement craft storage and found it. He would not leave me alone so this will get some love. I forgot how much Iike this piece.


Stay tuned. This one has it's hooks in me. Let's see how long it lasts.

 I am sorry to say there has been no progress on The Universe in a Jar for this update. I have been stitching but not on what I was supposed to be focused on. I think I have stitcher's ADD. Hopefully there will be progress for the next update in 3 weeks.

I know the other ladies in the SAL are much more disciplined than I am so please go visit them to see the wonderful stitching they are doing.

 As if  I don't have enough stitching to keep me busy I have a new obsession. About a year ago I started diamond painting and it has become an addiction. I have several finished pieces and I am currently working on 2. I have not abandoned my stitching. I usually stitch for a few hours each day and then diamond paint in the evenings. I will share my finished pieces in another post. Here are the 2 I am currently alternating.

Canine Christmas--Randal Spangler--Diamond Art Club

The Old Shoe House--Dominic Davison--Diamond Art Club.

Just a disclaimer--the only company I buy diamond paintings from is Diamond Art Club.

 This time there has been absolutely no progress on Curl Up With a Good Book. Just can't get into it. However my other SAL project The Universe in a Jar has been nagging me constantly so I have been working on it instead. 

One of the advantages of working on this is that when I get bored with where I am working I just move the q snap to a different place. 

I would really like to finish this one sooner than later. It is my oldest WIP and was started 11/27/2011 for my youngest daughter and I would like to give it to her before she is 80 LOL. It is my 2nd oldest WIP.

Please be sure to stop over and see the wonderful projects my fellow stitchers are working on. There is a wonderful variety of amazing projects.
