Lots of Stitching

In looking back at my recent blog entries, I see I've actually accomplished a bit of stitching I haven't posted.  No new finishes, but some progress.  :) 

KUSTOM KRAFTS - EVERYONE NEEDS THEIR OWN SPACE

This one is my current obsession!  I can't wait to get home from work every day to stitch on this!  The new Needlework System 4 floor stand is definitely helping me with the progress.  Here's how it looks as of last night:


I can just see the beginning of the basket handle; can't WAIT till I get to the kitty at the bottom of the design!  What a fun stitch this is!!

KUSTOM KRAFTS SAL - NAPTIME DRAGON

I fear, stitching on the project above has made me seriously neglect this one, altho I do have a tiny bit of progress to show:
Here's what this one will look like when it's finished:



I've just barely made a start on the top left flower.  I love the bright colors in this design.

LHN - Fa-La-La (ORNAMENT SAL)

I would really like to have this one finished up by the end of the month; we'll see how it goes.  I haven't even finished the first ornament in this new series, while lots of the SAL participants have finished at least the first three.  I'm a slug!



BOUQUET FOR CHERYL SAL

I'm on vacation for the next few days (yeah!) and am thinking I may concentrate on this one.  I do have progress to show since I posted this one last though:



OAKHAVEN 2010 MONTHS SAL

I completed March a couple weeks ago but never posted it:


TUSAL AS OF MARCH 15

Last but not least, it's time once again to post progress on my TUSAL (Totally Useless SAL).  You can find the link in the sidebar for more info on this SAL. 

That's about it for now from my little spot in Colorado.  My tulips and daffodils are coming up; weather prediction is for close to 70 tomorrow!  BUT, rain/snow predicted for Thursday evening and into Friday/Saturday....that's springtime in Colorado.  Can you believe March is generally our snowiest month of the year?!  I sure hope that isn't the case for the second half of the month...we haven't had much here so far.

Happy Stitching!

My stars but your needle must be blazing. The first piece (Everyone needs.....) is really gorgeous!

All your other wips look good too. And about the LHN ornament. Don't feel bad while I have the first one finished I haven't even started the next three. :)

All those color changes and all those stitches -- beautiful work. Looking forward to the appearance of the cat, too. Your other WIPs are beautiful, too.

Wow, that's what I call "progress"! Your needles must be hot and smoking... All looks wonderful and I have a couple surprises for you on my blog...

Wow, that looks great, so glad you are enjoying your floor stand. I hear you about the weather. We are 20 degrees above normal and now they are saying snow for the weekend. At least if it does, it won't be on the ground for long! Enjoy your vacation!

Great stitching as usual.

I'm doing the LHN ornaments too. I have the charts for the first three and will get the fourth next week. So far all I've done is the third one "He's a Flake" but will get to the others soon I hope.

Beautiful work

The temps here got up to 68F this week. By the weekend, forecasters are calling for 1-3" of snow!!

Your stitching looks great. Glad your new stand is working out for you.

Enjoy your vacation!
