Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends.  Hope all of you had a wonderful day.  I did not getting anything for Christmas that was stitching related but my Dear Sweat Husband did get me two birds.  I got a 16 week old Sun Conure and a 6 month old Brown Throated Conure.

This one I'm naming Mango

and this one I'm naming Kiwi

Mountain Wolf WIP, (ISHW)

Here is a pic of Mountain Wolf week 1 wip.  I have not had much stitching time but trying to fit in as much as I can.

 I also signed up for the ISHW and was only able to stitch a total of 4 hours over the weekand.  I forgot we were celebrating Christmas with all my out of town family over the weekand.  So hopefully the next one in January I will beable to get in more stitching time.

Christmas Stockings

I had a busy morning with Christmas shopping.  I also fit in time to sew up the Christmas Stockings so now they are ready to be given for Christmas.  I think they turned out great.

I signed up for the Wipocalypse sal sound like it will be fun.  Will be looking forward to seeing what everyone is working on next year.

To sign up for this SAL visit Measi's Musingings Here

 This will be a SAL for fun, not a contest.  Everyone stitches at a different pace, on different sized projects, with different goals and concepts of accomplishment, so a standard set of one-size-fits-all rules simply won’t work.  So whether you’re a one-at-a-time stitcher or an insane rotationer like me,  gather up the UFOs and WIPs on which you’d love to make good progress (or finish) and join us.

Here are the rules for the 2012 Wipocalypse:

1)  To sign up, leave a comment on this post with your blog address. International bloggers are welcome.
2) Sometime shortly before the start of 2012, make a list of the projects you will be focusing on. Add to and adjust this list throughout the year as you desire.  There are no restrictions regarding new starts for this SAL.  If you feel the desire to start a piece in 2012, add it to your list!
3) On each full moon (or thereabouts), post your progress photos to your site – even if your progress was slower than you hoped.  Label that post with “WIPocalypse” to make it easy for me to find.
4) Once you’ve posted, come over to my blog and find my full moon post, and comment that you’ve updated.  I will create a check-in list of URLs each month for easy blog surfing so fellow participants and readers can cheer you on.
Why is it important to post each month even if you’ve made little progress?  You’ll earn one chance, per status post, for a giveaway drawing to be done on New Year’s Day, 2013!  I don’t want to discourage folks who may have issues that prevent them from posting for a month and force them to give up entirely on the SAL, but I also want to reward those who do check in every month.
What will be in the drawing?  Honestly, I’m not sure yet!  That will be determined throughout 2012 as I add to the box during my trips to my local LNS.  If you’d like to contribute to the box, email me (address below) and I’ll send you my address. Clean, unmarked charts (respect copyright – no photocopies!), finished items, new floss skeins, fabric, etc. are all welcome.  If you have other ideas for a contribution, drop me an email to discuss.
Full moon dates for 2012:
January 9
February 7
March 8
April 6
May 5
June 4
July 3
August 1
August 31
September 29

Q-Snap Huggie

I did it.  I was able to make my own q-snap huggie to fit my 11x11 q-snap frame.  I'm not a sewer but I think it turned out looking good and it seems to work.

Santa Stocking Finished.

Woo Hoo another 2011 finish.  I started this stocking on Nov 11, 2011 and finished it today Dec 11, 2011.   This stocking is for my DIL.

My plan was to start Fire and Ice next but after looking through all my stash I found that I don't have everything I need to start stitching that one, so after much debating and seeing what I have to stitch I have decided to start Mountain Wolf designed by Dyan Allaire,  I will be stitching it on 28 ct Evenweave Light blue Jobelan.  Finished Design size is 14 w x 18.7 h.

This is what it should like when I'm finished.
