While I love staying in touch with my stitching friends from all over the world, the past week I've been doing my best to stay away from the computer in the evening and weekend....stitching, stitching, and stitching (while glued to the TV watching the Olympics). I just love watching all the amazing athletes doing things I couldn't dream of doing! GO USA!!!!!
So, here's my updates for this week.
Yep, it's time to post the TUSAL (Totally Useless SAL) photo for February. I admit I'm sure I chose far too small of a container for this undertaking! Yikes!
BRIDE'S TREE SAL
I'm happy to say that I finished my February heart ornament tonight!! My 5th finish for 2010!
"Love" by Barbara Smith Cooley
Free Chart from Plum Pudding NeedleArt
Stitched on Silkweaver 28 ct Jobelan Solo (marble lavender)
Backed with purple fabric from my stash
CHATELAINE ROSE GARDEN MANDALA SAL
I spent some time during the weekend working on this one. I'm finding it fun, but a low stitch (probably the stitcher, not the design!)
LHN MONTHLY ORNAMENT SAL
Still working on the January ornament, but I hope to finish it up by the end of the month. I stitched the girl yesterday. Ok, so I'm a couple months behind. I received the charts and fabric really late, plus I have waaaaaay too many SALS on the go! Yikes!
HAED DRAGON LUCK SK SAL
HUGE mistake to be doing this 2 over 1 on 25 ct! I will NEVER do this again! If I stitch another HAED, it will be 1 over 1, and perhaps on a smaller count fabric. This one is making me nuts; of course, the fact that I started in the top left, where it is all very dark colors, doesn't help a bit. Right now, it just looks like a very tight, thick, dark blob!
OAKHAVEN MONTHS 2010 SAL
I got this one caught up and finished February over the weekend.
LAST UP, BENT CREEK SNAPPERS
My traveling UFO turned WIP is coming along a bit, thanks to some recent trips to Denver. I'll be going to Denver tomorrow for a meeting and since I'm not driving, may get a few more stitches in, we'll see.
