Time for a SAL update

Good morning. I have been bad. I am so tired of stitching brown that I switched projects. Last time I was here I was working on Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate. As much as I love it I needed more color in my life so I switched to The Universe in a Jar. It is so nice to have all the beautiful colors to play with.
When I put CC&MC away it looked like this.
When I got TUIAJ out it looked like this. I have made a bit of progress but I'm too lazy to take it off the frame for a picture. Hope to have bunches done by next update.
I am really enjoying looking at everyone's progress. There are some great projects being stitched.

Check out the rest of the members and their wonderful projects here. We also have a new member. Welcome Helen.

See you in 3 weeks.

I am all browned out. Haven't really been stitching much the past couple of weeks. Just a few stitches here and there. Then it hit me. I NEED SOME COLOR IN MY LIFE. So I have switched from CC&MC to The Universe in a Jar. It has been squealing lately and I figured out why. Haven't stitched on TUIAJ since 5/2014. Poor thing.
I will get back to CC&MC eventually but for now you will be seeing updates on TUIAJ.

Time for a SAL update

I have recently joined a SAL with some really supportive and wonderful ladies. We post our progress every 3 weeks. Hoping that their support will motivate me to make significant progress on Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate which I would like to finish before June 2017. HAHA.
Here is where I was when I joined the SAL.

And here is where I am today. Not as much progress as I would like but I'll take it.

If you would like to join us contact Avis for details.

Also please check out my SAL mates to see their wonderful projects.

I have found a stitching group here in Great Falls. Going for the first time today at 3pm. They meet every Thursday at Pam's Knit and Stitch which is just down the street from my house. I decided to take a more portable project than my HAED so Bhyr Deeze from Long Dog Samplers was elected to accompany me.

Page Finish

I have a double page finish on Chocolate Chocolate & More Chocolate. For some reason I didn't finish the last bit on page 15 when I worked on this last. Today I finished pages 15 and 16.

Now on to page 8.

I have been following a SAL for quite some time now and finally decided to join in. The ladies are stitching some beautiful projects and I am honored to be included.
I will be stitching on my Chocolate Chocolate and More Chocolate. Artist Randal Spangler. Charted by HAED.
Here is my starting point for the SAL. Hopefully will have lots more done by next post on Nov 6.

Please check out the following blogs to see more stitchy goodness.

I knew when I moved home what winter in  Montana was like. My best friend kept telling me that the winters haven't been bad for the last few years. Yeah right. It is Oct 11 and it has already snowed 3 times. Granted not much more than a dusting but it is really early for this to be happening. And it is snowing again today.
I am prepared though. I have all my stitching planned out and my daughter has assured me that she will do the outside errands if the weather is bad so I can hibernate.

I have been making progress on my cupcake. Much more fun than the stack of Oreos.

I also received a new chart as an anniversary(41 years) from my DH. Halloween is my favorite holiday & I fell in love with this when I saw it. Didn't hurt that it was on sale.

Time to sign off and stitch now but can't leave without a picture of my stitching buddy Elvira. She works so hard. LOL

Have a great day everyone.
