Slack blogger!

Hello out there!

I hope you all are having a wonderful summer.  My boys and I have been keeping busy trying to enjoy as much of our little island as we can.  

I have also been getting in a little stitching here and there which I will show you now.

Still stitching away on the Joyful World SAL from The Snowflower Diaries.  

I made it to the top of another row on Hannah Lynn.  Those rows sure are getting long!

I started on the word "Dove" from ABC Christmas by LizzieKate.

I stitched a bit on Cars while watching The Stitcher's Film Club movies this month.  The two movies chosen this month were Into The Wood and Moulin Rouge!  I really enjoyed both of them!  If any of you would like to join us we have a facebook group, just look up "Stitcher's Film Club"

I finally managed to finish the over one birds on Mothers And Daughters by The Victoria Sampler.  I sure am glad those little birds are finished!

My little puppy dog is almost finished on Halloween Rules  but I found out I made a mistake on the word "Costume" so it is in the process of coming out.

And lastly is my mystery sampler from Steotch.  I have no idea at all what it is going to turn out to be.  I think they only do tv and movie themed patterns, not that that is much help in figuring out what this is going to be.

Well guys I am pretty near cooked!  It has been hot and humid here on PEI so I am going to go get a big glass of ice water and try not to move too much until the sun goes down.

Happy Stitching!

Happy Belated Canada Day and 4th of July!!

And since I got sidetracked yesterday, now belated 4th of July!

Hello to you all!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday if you celebrate and if not I hope you had a great time with whatever you were doing.  (Hopefully getting some stitching in!)

Here are a couple pictures of my boys from the Canada Day parade.

And here is Brayden on his last day of grade 2!  I can't believe how fast this school year went!

And now a little stitching update!

All I have left on the first block of Halloween Rules is the dog.

I am very close to finishing the first "page" on Deepest Love.  I say "page" because I made a working copy so it will be the first page of my working copy, the actually pattern is really only 1 huge page, front and back.

Remy Rabbit is slow going but getting there.

March from the Joyful World SAL by The Snowflower Diaries is coming along too.  All the orange color is finished and I started adding the prettiest shade of blue.

So yesterday turned out to be quite a day.  I had made plans with a good friend of mine to have an evening of stitching.  After I ate supper, which I had burnt fairly well on the BBQ...yum... I headed out.  I decided to stop for 5 skeins of floss at Micheal's so I just grabbed some change and headed in when I thought no I better go back to the van and grab my wallet, I shouldn't leave it in the van.  While doing so I set my keys on the seat and then proceeded to lock the doors.  45 minutes and a coat hanger later I was on the road again.  I did make it to my friends house but our evening ended up being a lot shorter than we had planned.  Oh well we had a fun time anyway.

Wishing all of you a happy day and hoping you all are getting to do something you love.

I am a little late with my TUSAL but I did dump my jar and take the picture on the right day.  Pretty pitiful this month.

I did work on quite a few projects this month just didn't finish off many threads I guess.

Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Design - I added about 200 stitches.  I only stitch on this one on the 5th of each month for a SAL and I will also stitch on it if I have a finish for the rest of that day so she doesn't get a whole lot of time.

March from the Joyful World SAL by The Snowflower Diaries - Hoping to get this finished before the next TUSAL

Mothers And Daughters by The Victoria Sampler - Last month I had just finished the letter "Z".  I am almost halfway finished.

Deepest Love by Mirabilia - added most of the stitching above the leaves this month.  

ABC Christmas by LizzieKate - added "Candy Cane"

Halloween Rules by Lizzie Kate - added the ghost

Hamilton Horse by Brooke's Books - finished and I have started on Remy Rabbit but I only have his border done and a little bit of the snow so not much to see yet.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching!

A Little bit of stitching

Hello everyone!

I hope you all are well and getting lots of stitching in!

Here is what I have been up to lately.

Hannah Lynn has almost another row finished.

I am almost finished with the border on March from The Joyful World SAL.

I finished the first page on Mothers and Daughters by The Victoria Sampler.  This one is just so much fun to stitch!

I am almost finished with the cute little ghost on Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  All he needs is his little pumpkin basket.

 My mermaid almost has a fin on Deepest Love by Mirabilia.

And lastly is ABC Christmas by LizzieKate with a paw from my little friend.

And speaking of my little friend, here he is enjoying an afternoon nap.  Excuse my bare foot :)

Thank you all so much for stopping by to visit with me!

Happy Stitching!

A little update and a BIG update!


It is a beautiful warm sunny day here on Prince Edward Island.  I have been out enjoyed the sun quite a bit today but more on that later.

On to the stitching!

I am enjoying stitching this one so much!  It is Mothers & Daughters by The Victoria Sampler.  I am about 1/3 of the way through and am already planning the next one I am going to stitch.

 Next is Halloween Rules by Lizzie Kate.  I finished off the header, which I am not showing here, and added a little ghost :)

Deepest Love is coming slowly but surely.  I am almost finished with the first page but if I keep going at this pace I will never finish it!

And since I finished Hamilton Horse yesterday I rewarded myself with stitching on Hannah Lynn from Heaven and Earth Designs for the rest of the day.  I almost have made it to the top again!

And now for my big update!

I would like to introduce you all to Monty!  The boys are quite taken with him and I am too!  This is why I have been enjoying the sunshine so much, we are outside 15 times a day I am sure!  

Oh to be a puppy!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me!

Happy Stitching!
