Another Page Finish!

And another page finish on Little Flutterby.  I think this one's a record for me-approx 2 weeks.  I'm on the home stretch now!  Only two more pages to go.





The extra 2 or 3 days I've had to stitch this month really made a difference in addition to there not being so many color changes on this page.  So far, so good on my plan to stick with this one until she's done.

Happy Stitching,

Tamara

Page Finish!

And I have a page finish on my QS Little Flutterby!




Now just three more pages and a little strip under those left to do.  I will definitely get her done this year, and hopefully long before the end of the year.  And I have three extra stitching days this month, so I hope to get a page finished by the end of the month.  Fingers crossed.

Happy Stitching,

Progress Report #162

Little Flutterby is coming right along.  I think I'm about halfway done with this page and with a couple of vacation days coming up in July, maybe I can make some real progress if I can manage to make myself sit down and actually stitch instead of watching Flosstube, reading Facebook groups, and shopping for cross stitch!





I don't remember what the last picture of my Peacock Band Sampler was that I posted, so this might be a repeat since I haven't touched it in a couple of months, probably.





Today's plan for the future stitching is to finish Little Flutterby, then move on the Peacock Band Sampler, then finish the 1999 Prairie Schooler Santa I have started, and then get back to my Trick or Treat Sampler. Then I can dig into my wanna-do pile.  I often think I would like to get back to being a one-at-a-time stitcher again, but then I look through the wanna-do pile and my best intentions go right out the window!  And mostly, I feel like I'm in a time warp.  I cannot believe how fast time whizzes by these days.  I'm very nostalgic for those long, lazy days of my youth.  Sigh.

Happy Stitching,

Let There Be Progress

Not to brag, or anything, but I'm almost finished with another page of Little Flutterby.  She has most of her face now!





She's coming along so nicely, I don't want to put her down.  My poor band sampler is being neglected.  No progress on that this month.  I was planning on working on that on Memorial Day, but I was on a roll with cutie pie.  June is again looking packed with things to do, the calendar is bulging, but I'm taking a couple of days vacation time next month, so maybe I will get at least one stitching day, hopefully.  I'm beyond ready for life to be bland and boring again.

Happy Stitching,

Stitch or Stash?

Both!  It's been a slow stitching month.  I haven't seemed to have too much trouble finding time to stash this month, though.  Those wanna-do piles just keep getting bigger and bigger.  Anyway.

Almost to a page finish on Little Flutterby:


 

And even slower progress on the band sampler:





I've been getting an urge for smalls again, but I'm trying my best not to start anything new until one or two of the current projects are finished.  A friend of mine finished a lot of the Mill Hill Diamonds recently and, of course, I had to finish my collection when I saw how beautiful hers made up! Maybe 2018 will be the year of smalls again, who knows?  Then there are all those new goodies winging their way to me and I will be changing direction once again, lol.

Happy Stitching!

April 2017 Update

And another band of the sampler is done.





Life got a little crazy this past week or two and isn't settling down anytime soon it looks like.  Hopefully, next month I can catch a little break.  Meanwhile, I'll keep plugging away when I can.

Happy Stitching,

Tamara

Now to go try to accomplish 25,000 million things today.  Sigh.

Happy Stitching,
