VACATIOIN

Apparently my stitchy bug has decided to take a vacation. Hasn't been seen since last week.

That's okay though because the knitting and crocheting bugs are here to keep me company.

This week I finished my daughter's huge granny square afghan. Boy was I glad to see the last of that. LOL.













I also finished 2 dishcloths that I started in my knitting class.










I have also started a cowl for my daughter and will be doing 2 more dishcloths with different patterns for my knitting class.

Actually the weather is very conducive to these activities. Cool and raining. Good weather to stay in and knit.

Off to knit now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

BACK ON TRACK

Had a better stitching day yesterday. Actually have progress to show. Today is a stitching day also. Husband is napping, all of my chores are done and dinner is planned.
Also a sunny but cold day. The snow should go away soon.

I did 211 stitches yesterday.

Here is today's starting point.











I also found this on FB yesterday and it pretty much describes me right now.


































Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

MISSED A DAY

Didn't put in any stitches yesterday. I did do 106 stitches on Friday.

Yesterday I left my stitching home when I went to stitch group and took my knitting and crocheting instead. And I had two starts and 2 finishes yesterday. My daughter snagged the bottom one and it disappeared almost before I could snap a picture.











Not much but they were fun to do. I plan on making more of them. Good way to use up my Sugar and Cream cotton.

I will stitch today. Really missed it yesterday even though I wasn't feeling it. Does that make sense?

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

NOT MUCH

Progress yesterday. Only 37 stitches but what the hey it's 37 I don't have to do today. I ended up taking my knitting to stitch group as I needed some help and also it is more portable.

The art reception was fun and I met some very talented artists. Tonight is the First Friday Art Walk which happens the first Friday of every month. Artists display their work at several locations and people go from place to place to view the art.
I will be going to sit with my friend Sandy who displaying her her art. I will be taking my knitting here also to keep my hands busy.

Here is today's starting point.










Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

GOT SOME DONE

I actually got a good amount done yesterday considering how tired I was. 144 stitches total.

Today is stitch group so we shall see. Then after stitch group I am going to an Art reception at the library. My best friend will be exhibiting her art there all month.

Here is today's starting point.










Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

WASN'T SURE

If I was going to stitch today. Today was the monthly grocery shopping at Walmart. This really exhausts me. Jessica goes with me to do the lifting and carrying but just walking up and down the aisles and checking out is tiring for me. Most of the groceries are put away. Just some dry goods and canned goods to go but doing it a little at a time. Already informed husband that dinner is going to be simple.

Now that I have rested for a bit I will be stitching. I did 154 stitches yesterday. We'll see if I can match that today.

Here is today's starting point.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow

AND STITCHING I WILL GO

Housework is done. Meat thawing for supper. Husband asleep. Cold out but sun is shining. Snow on the ground. I think I will stitch now.

I did 215 stitches yesterday. I'm getting back into my groove.

Here is today's starting point and yes I did get to stitch something other than blue yesterday.











Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

SNOWING

Told you winter wasn't over here. Snow showers today and possibly tomorrow.

Opening day for Red Sox today so stitching and watching the baseball game.

Did get 150 stitches done yesterday. Hopefully more today.

Here is today's starting point.










Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

BOY DOES TIME FLY (SAL UPDATE)

When you're having fun. It is time for another SAL update. Are you sure it has been 3 weeks?

I had a page finish this time but haven't gotten much done since then. I have been a bad girl and have been knitting and crocheting since Friday.

Here is what it looked like the last time.










Here is what it looks like now. Sorry for the off color photo. I took it at night and the lighting wasn't the best.









After the page finish I dithered about where to go next. Up another page or to the right. I posted on FB and the consensus was to go to the right. This is where I am stitching now.










Nothing much going on today so I hope to get a good amount done on this. In March I put a total of 7,296 stitches into it. Hoping to do a well this month.

Please check out all of the wonderful stitching being done by other members of our SAL who are all over the world.

NO STITCHING PER SEY

This happened instead. I am getting ready for my knitting class so I thought I would practice my skills that I already have. Hopefully this will be a scarf for my daughter.













It is also TUSAL time. This is my jar for March.













To be truthful I did do 25 stitches yesterday but not enough to take a picture of.

I will be knitting again today at stitch group but maybe some stitching when I get home.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

AND THERE IS MORE BLUE

Moving on the next page the first part up is blue confetti. I'm not complaining though as I love filling in the little spaces. Makes me sure I am making progress.

Yesterday was stitch group so you guessed it low stitch count. Really need to learn to stitch and chat at the same time.  Total for yesterday was 167. Should be a better count today because I have nothing to do but stitch. Cool and gray outside so not going out anywhere.

Here is today's starting point.

AND

Guess what happened at 1am this morning. You guessed it . I got a page finish. This page took me 32 days. Not bad if I do say so myself. I have now done 7 full pages and 6 partial pages. Now to decide if I go up another page or to the right.

It was a total of 527 stitches to finish the page.










The consensus on FB is that I should go to the right. So here is today's starting point.










Off to stitch group in a bit. We'll see how much progress I make. LOL.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

GLOOMY

So woke up this morning to a gray and gloomy day. Supposed to rain today and tomorrow. I'll take that over snow.

Yesterday I got closer to my page finish. I did 218 stitches so not many more to go. I should make my goal of a page finish by Friday.

One good thing about gray and gloomy. It's a good day to stay in and stitch.

Here is today's starting point.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

SILLY ME

You would think I would know better at my age. Stayed up till 2am watching movies last night. Then woke up at my regular time today so am operating on about 5 1/2 hours sleep.

I did 300 stitches yesterday. Filled in a lot of confetti and did some more blue.

Here is today's starting point.













I am also going to try for a page finish by Friday. Do you think I can make it? Approximately 500 stitches left.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

SOME DAYS

Some days are just better than others for stitching. Sunday seems to have been a good day for me. I did 408 stitches.

Total for last week is 2,067 stitches. I'll take it.

Here is today's starting point.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

GOOD MORNING

The sun is shining and I have all my chores done. Quick post here and then I am going to stitch the day away.

Had a great time at stitch group yesterday. (Forgot to post a starting photo yesterday).

On Friday I did 235 stitches and on Saturday 240. Not bad.

Here was what it looked like just before stitch group.













And here is today's starting point. I filled in some confetti and started that pretty pink on the right. Needed a break from blue and confetti.













I was also a bad girl at stitch group yesterday. I seem to have restarted my yarn addiction. I am taking a refresher knitting class in April so of course I needed these. And the book for my class.























The new owners at the LNS/LYS are baaaaad. They keep bringing in new stuff that we just can't resist. These had us ROTFL. They are so funny. I brought home 2.



This is the inside of the 2nd card.











Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

WHERE I HANG OUT ON THURSDAY AND SATURDAY


This is just a few pics of my LYS/LNS. I have a picture of the table where we sit and stitch but my phone does not talk to blogger so will have to take another picture on Thursday.

HELLO

As you can see I don't have the mental acuity today to come up with a catchy title.

Had a good day at stitch group yesterday. Actually got something done. Stitch total was 139.

I also signed up for a refresher knitting class. Yes they have hooked me back into knitting as if I don't have enough to do with stitching and crochet.

Today I had to run to Petco for some critter supplies and stopped at the LYS/LNS to pay for said knitting class. Can't wait.

Off to stitch now. Here is my starting point today.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow.

THERE IS PROGRESS

Just not as much as the last few days. I should know better than to overdo it. But I felt good and had plenty of energy for once so kept on going long after I should have stopped. I forget that I will pay for it later.

I did do 131 stitches though so not a total loss.

Here is today's starting point and (stitch group day) need I say more. LOL.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

LATE START

Had a busy morning today. Jessica and I did a recycle run and then I had to pick up a few things from the grocery store. I overdid it so now will have to sit and stitch for the rest of the day. To tired to do anything else. At least supper is planned out and every one can make their own lunch.

I only did 359 stitches yesterday. Not a bad amount.

Here is today's starting point.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

AND THERE IS BLUE

Lots and lots of blue. Yesterday I did 555 blue stitches. In the last two days that adds up to 1,062 blue stitches. Many more to come. I just checked the floss list in response to a question from a stitchy friend and there are 30 shades of blue in the chart and on this page there are 8 shades of blue where I'm working. Good thing I like blue.

Here is today's starting point.

A REALLY GOOD STITCHY DAY

Yesterday was the best stitching day I have had for a while. I did 507 stitches which brings the weeks total to 1,798. I am pleased with this. We shall see what this week brings in the way of stitching time.

Here is today's starting point. Should go fast as lots of large areas of one color.










Chores are done so I am off to stitch and read blogs now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Stitch group was fun yesterday. I got a lot done and we had a good time chatting and gossiping.

Yesterday's total was 244 stitches. I managed to finish filling in all of the circles on this page of the mushroom lid. Now onward and upward.









 









Off to stitch now.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

CONFETTIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

I know it is necessary but I do get tired of  changing threads all the time. Love how it looks though.

Off to stitch group in a few minutes so this will be short.

I did 251 stitches yesterday so it was a good day as most of them were confetti.

Here is today's starting point. Again stitch group so we shall see how much I get done. LOL

WHAT CAN I SAY

Yesterday was not a very productive stitchy day for me. I had stitch group and it was a retirement party for one of the ladies who has worked at the LNS/LYS for the last 25 years. There was a huge turnout and it was crowded and very chatty. Then after that I went to an art show where my best friend is displaying and selling her paintings. Finally got home around 8pm and was so tired I couldn't even look at my stitching/knitting/crocheting. The 2 glasses of wine at the art show didn't help either. All I wanted to do was go to bed.

All in all I did manage to do 44 stitches. Today is a quiet day. Hubby is still asleep, all my chores are done and today we will be eating leftovers so off to stitch I go.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow

SO LUCKY

I got beautiful stitchy mail today all the way from England. My friend Michelle (also known as Mouse) from the yahoo group Friendly Stitchers that I belong to sent me a wonderful ornament as part of an exchange. I don't usually participate in exchanges but since she didn't have a partner for this exchange she decided to make it for me. I LOVE IT. It is in my favorite colors also. It will hang in a place of honor in my craft room.













I filled in some more confetti yesterday and also stitched some more blue. I'm getting there. 217 stitches yesterday.

Here is today's starting point. Again it is Thursday which is stitch group so not sure how much I will get done. I am also working as a greeter tonight at a local art show that my best friend is displaying at.













Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

BLUE

As you can see not very creative today. Probably because I stayed up till 2am watching TV and doing this. I decided I didn't like what I had previously knit so ripped it out and started again. Very relaxing to do.










Just a simple straight knitting scarf. Since I haven't knit for so long I am doing this to work on my tension etc.

I did put in 198 stitches yesterday. Somehow I just couldn't go to an even 200 LOL.

Here is today's starting point.













I did get to add a pretty plum color to the jar lid and am also carrying on with the blue.

Hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy day.

Till tomorrow
