Yesterday was Cottage Trio day and it is getting close to being finished! I really wasn't sure we would ever see that day. All that is left is the roof and the big tree on the right.
I have also been working away on Titania but there usually isn't much to show, over 1 stitching doesn't make much progress each day.
Last night was stitching guild night and we all went out for supper together before the meeting and we had a lovely time! I really needed the night out because I am trying to potty train Thomas. It is not going well. It wasn't easy with Brayden either. I am so jealous of those kids who just train themselves. Thomas has told me today that he doesn't want to pee in the toilet anymore and just wants to pee in his diaper. Perfect. We have gone through at least 5 pairs of underwear and pants today and now he is in a diaper because we ran out of clean underwear. I think we will just leave the potty training alone right now and try again next month. Wish me luck, I know I am going to need all I can get! Ha!
I finally started my Christmas ornament for the Christmas Ornie SAL for this month. I have been enjoying stitching on Titania so much that I had a hard time making myself stitching anything else.
This is Merry Christmas by Country Cottage Needleworks from the 2011 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Issue.
My sister-in-law and I have decided to start walking and today was the first day. There are beautiful trails all over PEI that used to be railroad tracks but are now walking trails in the summer and snowmobile trails in the winter. She has a 3 month old and I have Mr Thomas so we packed up the strollers and away we went. We just walked with no real plan as to how far and how long we would go and in the end we walked about 5 kms. I am pretty sure I will not be able to move tomorrow. Good excuse to stitch the day away!
It is a beautiful spring day here on Prince Edward Island and I am ready for some warm weather! Yesterday though they were calling for snow, yuck!
Cottage trio had a turn yesterday. This is what it looked like last time I showed it.
And this is what is looks like now. I finished the bottom section, backstitching and all. All that is left is the cottage and the big tree over the top. I can say with about 100% certainty that I will never stitch another pattern that is hand drawn with fractional stitches. Bravo to all of you that don't mind stitching patterns like that!!
Big day yesterday at our house! Brayden lost his first tooth!! I am pretty sure I could enter him in The Guinness Book of World Records for longest loose tooth to fall out. Ha!
I finally finished off Sweet Tooth which was a limited edition pattern from The Frosted Pumpkin. My mom made it into a pillow and today I added the bakers twine for a hanger. Now if my boy would just pop that tooth out we could use it for a Tooth Fairy pillow.
I have been getting some stitching in on Titania too and I am mainly focusing on her left wing and left arm. Slow and steady.
I have started #4 from the Brooke's Books Advent Animals freebies. Duncan the Dog is a dapper little fellow and it was fun to add the bow to his bone. Hopefully today will finish him up.
Brayden had 4H last night and his group was learning about worms and dirt and he brought home a worm farm... that is going to live in my kitchen...yep.
It is 2 coffee cups for drainage with wet newspaper on the top and some compost items like carrot peelings next and then I have no idea because I was not sticking my fingers in there to find out. We are supposed to keep it damp and add some more compost items every once and awhile. I am hoping when we plant the garden that I am able to talk Brayden into letting them go free. Wish me luck!
I have gotten way off track with my rotation. Which isn't a big deal but now that it is April I have a couple SAL stitches that I have to get out of the way so I need to get back to a rotation again.
I hope to finish up Cottage Trio this month. It is coming a long really well and I am actually enjoying it now that most of the half stitches are behind me. Those yellow flowers (daffodils?) were a chore!
Titania is still so much fun to stitch. I am already looking forward to starting my next Mirabilia.
