Sorry for the late update. Had a super busy week.

I did get quite a bit of stitching in, but sadly not much to show for it. Last time I showed you my start to Sleigh Ride

This is as far as I got

And then I decided I didn’t like the way it was looking. Some of the colors didn’t show up well on the background. You could hardly see the snow and snowflakes. So I decided to start over and use a darker background. So here I am now.

I’m much happier with the darker background. The white (and other colors show up much better) The second clue comes out on Jan 24th so I’m on track and not to far behind. Hopefully I’ll finish it before then and can start on the next part.

Be sure and check out what the other in the stitch-a-long have done. I’ll see you for the next update on February 11th.

SAL Update-December

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! Ours was great- loud, busy and fun.

Once the craziness settled down I was even able to get some stitching in.

I finally decided what I wanted to work on. I ordered the Winter Carriage Ride from The Frosted Pumpkin. This is a mystery pattern. I’m working on the first part on the pattern.

Here is what I’m working on.

Here is what I’ve been able to finish so far.

Not much so far, but it a start.

Hope you have a Happy New Year and see you next year in January for the next update.

Be sure and check out what the others in the SAL are up to.

Wow six weeks have flown by. I totally forget to post 3 weeks ago.

Unfortunately I don’t have anything to share. The holidays are taking up a lot of my free time.

Be to sure and check out what progress the others have done and hopefully I’ll have something to share in 3 weeks

SAL-October #2

Well I get to do another happy dance. I finished my Black Hat Society. 

Here is where I was last time. 

Here it is finished 

I even got it into a frame and up before Halloween 😀

I haven’t started a new project yet. I have been busy making these cuties. 

These are easy to knit and I’ve been having fun making them. So far I’ve made 15 of them. I’ve given most of them away. 

Not sure what my next project will be. Thought I’d do another Halloween project, but now I’m not sure. I’m kind of over Halloween for now. 😀 I guess it will be a surprise. 
Be sure and check out what the others in the SAL have done.

Time for another SAL update. I’m happy to report that I’m doing the “happy dance”! I finished my project! Here is were I was last time 

And now…….

I saved the easiest section for last, even though I didn’t know it when I started. 😀. I’m really happy with the way it turned out. I have one more kit to do in this series, but have not started it. I need a break and something with more colors. 

So I decided to make this cute Halloween scene from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. They have a lot of cute stuff on their website. You can get a kit or just the charts. I opted for the chart. Here is what their finished project look like……

And my project. 

I decided to do a natural colored background. I really like it. I only have a couple more letters and the brim left to do. (Thanks to cold and windy days and a long car ride 😀) This one was much easier, not that many color changes! 

My next project is going to be a Halloween one too. This a kit I got. Hopefully next time I’ll be doing 2 “happy dances” but the next kit has beads in it and I’ve not done beads before, so we’ll see. 

Be sure and check out what the others in the SAL have been working on……

Well it time for another SAL update. This is where I was last time. 

And now….

I’ve made some progress. I only have 3 more rows and some line work to do and then this section will be done. Then only one more section to go. Hopefully I’ll be doing the happy dance next update. I’m ready for a project with a little more color in it. 

Check out what the others have been doing. We also have a new member Jackie,

Halloween Card #2

I think I have been inspired to start making cards again. Card making is usually the hobby I do the most, but summer is a hard time for me. First we have tons of company and then I have to bring what I think I need with me (we spend summers in a small town high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado)

For some reason this summer, every time I start a project I seem to find early on that I’m missing something. For the last 2 cards though I’ve seemed to have all the supplies. So I’m going to keep making Halloween cards for awhile, since they seem to be working. LOL

Once again I found my inspiration off Pinterest. I just put the stamp set I wanted to use in the search box and lots of ideas came up. I really like this card from Dawn Griffith. The stamp sets I used were from Stampin Up. I used Halloween Scares and Spooky Fun. I really like both these sets. Dawn was so nice to post a Video on YouTube, which I followed. I didn’t really change anything, just followed along. I did decorate the front of my envelope too. 

So here is my card…….
