My Sunday Stitchy Update 02/18/18

Welcome Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful week!

This week I pulled out the next project in my WIP Box and once I started looking at the chart I realized that I am missing two floss colors for it.  They are both DMC but they are in the Coloris line and I never bought those because I never thought I would need them! I guess that will teach me to pay closer attention when I am looking things over on the charts. So I ordered one of them and the other is literally for less than 20 stitches! I didn't want to buy it just for that so another stitcher (thanks Gay!) sent me some Wisper floss to use in its place since it is for hair and that will make it look fluffy. So then I packed everything up and moved to the NEXT one in the box and it just so happened to be another Christmas design.

So may I present to you...

Christmas Penguin
Designer - Gill Cooper
 This is what the finished piece will look like,

and this is mine!

First Stitch 02/12/18
Progress as of 02/18/18

This piece will be for Jacob as he is the lover of all things penguin and collects them.

Now to pull out the next piece in the WIP Box but since I still haven't received the DMC that I ordered, I am not sure what it will be!

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
have a wonderful week and I will
see ya next week with another faithful update!

Sunday Stitchy Update 02/11/18

Well hello friends! I do hope that all my friends that are in the snowy parts of the world are staying safe and warm! I see everyone is getting tons of snow and I seriously don't miss those days!

This week the next piece in my WIP Box was Fun Every Day. It is a perpetual calendar that (as one person pointed out to me) is destined to become a perpetual project!  There are 48 tags in the series and I just finished number three and started number four! I may have a while before I am finished! LOL

Puzzling Wednesday 02/09/18

Well it has been a crazy puzzling ten or eleven days!

After I got the border together for this one I just sat looking at the box of pieces like, NOW WHAT! LOL  There are soooo many pieces and I felt like I just had no idea where to start. It took me at least 2 days to just sort the pieces but once I finally did that I couldn't decide which color pile to start with!

First I decided to do the bridge because I thought that it would provide references points - ha ha, no reference points especially since I seem to be missing a section of it at the moment! So now I am trying to put the buildings together. Having both the building and their reflections is a bit of a challenge but I am totally enjoying it!

This is my current progress picture.

My Sunday Stitchy Update 02/04/18

Hi Friends!

This week I stitched a Valentine for my favorite Valentine, my Grandson Jacob! He is a pretty finicky eater and one of the main food groups he loves is PIZZA! 😁 You are probably thinking, does that qualify as a food group? LOL to him...it does!  I think he could eat it practically every day of his life! When I saw this piece in one of my newsletters I knew it was perfect for him.

You Have A Pizza My Heart
Designer - CrazzzyStitch
First Stitch 01/29/18
Last Stitch 02/03/18

Now I just need to frame it so it will be ready for Valentines!

Well now is the time to see what is next in the WIP Box! I wonder which piece will surprise me by making an appearance! 

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
