HAED Rotation

Sunday, March 29, 2020


Does anyone else think that this is the longest month EVER. LOL. Seems like it has been a whole year since February.

I do have something to show this month. I have settled on 2 projects for the time being. Both are HAED Randal Spangler because of #YearofSpangler2020 on my Instagram.

First up is Midnight Stories.

And what do you get when you are staying up and telling stories. You get the Midnight Munchies

Hopefully I will be able to stick with these two for awhile.

I have come to the conclusion that I am not a structured stitcher. The 24 hour rotation is no more. I will still be sticking to #YearofSpanger but I will be stitching or starting what I want when I want. I am not sorry. I cannot do challenges etc for the same reason. The only thing I can commit to is the SAL I am doing with a bunch of other stitchers. We stitch what we want and post on our blogs every 3 weeks. No pressure.
Here is my current stitch. 
Cruising the Information Highway. Started 2/28/2020

I will be stitching all the way across the bottom to make sure they cut my fabric correctly. 

Happy Stitching

As you all know I have difficulty sticking to one project. I have found that the 24 hour rotation is working for me. So far I have worked on 4. One of them only for about 3 hours as it just wasn't holding my attention as it is smaller than the rest. I am calling this my #YearofSpangler.

So far I have done 24 hours on each of the following:

Midieval Shelf

Reading by Firefly Light

Mushroom Inn

Poor SK The History of Chocolate only got 3 hours

And finally the current project (hope you're not bored yet)

Computer Catastrophes

Till next time. Happy stitching and don't forget to check out what all the other talented people (who have a longer attention span than I do are working on.)

I have finished 24 hours on the 2nd project in my 24 hour rotation. I had randomly picked up Reading by Firefly Light. It was a lot of fun to stitch on this one. I had started it way back in 1/1/12. The last time I had worked on it was 7/30/17.

 I am pleased with my progress.

The next project to come out is Mushroom Inn. I didn't write down when I started this one so I have no idea how long it has been since I worked on it.

  I am doing cross country on this one.

I seem to be averaging 10 days on each project.

Till next time.

Happy stitching.

As you all know I have way too many huge full coverage pieces on the go. This SAL is helping me stay focused for a short amount of time but I have decided that all of them need some time. I have instituted a 24 hour rotation to see if I can stitch on some of the long neglected Spangler's I have started. (see previous post for details.) What this means is that you will probably see a different piece each time we update. So far I have done 24 hours on my first piece.

Midieval Shelf was started way back in Oct of 2011 (I know right) and saw little love. I pulled it out and put in 24 hours and I am very pleased with my progress.

Starting point.

After 24 hours of stitching on it.

I will be choosing a new project today. No idea which on but it will be a Spangler.

Hopefully by the next update I will have another 24 hours in on a project. Maybe 2 projects.

There are a lot of talented stitchers in this SAL. Please go check out all of the wonderful projects they are working on. (They focus much better than I do LOL).

Okay it is confession time. I was rearranging my craft area today & organized my kitted up Spangler charts. I have 19 of them started and 3 that are not started. I know I'm late to the what am I going to stitch in 2020 but I have come up with a plan. Now if you know me and my stitching I am first off a serial starter. (the 19 Spangler's started are just a small part of the projects that are started around here). I also do not do good with deadlines or I must stitch this. I like to stitch what I want when I want. I have realized though that I need have progress on these wonderful projects so I am going to try a new kind of rotation. I will pick one project and stitch on it for 24 hours. Then I will randomly pick another one and stitch on that for 24 hours. After I have done 24 hours on each of the started ones I will start one of the kitted but not started ones. I am calling 2020 my YEAR OF SPANGLERS. We'll see how long this lasts.
I will quit rambling now and show you the first one up in the 24 hour rotation. I started Midieval Shelf in Sept 2011 and the last time I touched it was in 2013. I am ashamed.
Let's see how this experiment goes.

1ST SAL OF 2020.

Hard to believe it is a new decade already. Time is going way to fast.

I have made a new plan for my stitching in 2020. I am concentrating on the 3 HAED's that I am stitching for my children. I need to make major progress on them. I will work on whichever one is calling so you may see one now and a different one in 3 weeks. But it will only be the 3.

First up is Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate. I am stitching this one for my oldest daughter Sabrina.

Next up is The Universe in a Jar. This one is for my youngest daughter Jessica.

And last but not least Play Ball. This is for my baseball obsessed son Matthew.

Stay tuned to see what appears in the next SAL update.

Don't forget to stop by and check out the amazing stitching being done by the other talented people in the SAL. Also want to welcome AJ to the SAL.
