Stitching, But Not Much

I feel like I've been stitching and stitching and getting nowhere.

In reality, I've been barely stitching, so it's not a surprise :D

On the 5th, I picked up Archangel.  He was here:



Now he's here:




If you tilt your head just right and squint a little, you might see my progress XD

On the 10th, I started working on my Bent Creek Snappers.  It was here:


My progress disappoints me.  I got a chunk of the border done but didn't finish the October block - I was so close and I could have done it but I was lazy one day and didn't stitch on it at all.  The colors are off in the pic, by the way, but I did change the pumpkin colors.  They were a red/orange/brown color; I wanted an orange pumpkin.



Then on the 15th, I picked up Portrait of Christ.  He was here:


And is now here:



The first two days I barely touched him, then I kind of got in the groove and didn't want to put him down, but his turn was up.  Unless I missed some stitches, though, I finished off one color and got two more almost done.  I also did a bunch of the fractionals around his eyes that you really can't see.

Now I'm working on Unspoken, but on the 25th it's my birthday!  So I'm starting something new!  I didn't do it last year, I don't think, but I used to do that every year.  Haven't decided what it will be yet, but I'm leaning toward a bird kit or a tiger kit.  Or something completely different XD

Happy Stitching, guys!

  1. With the monthly one, you should pick out the '5' in 2015 and make it a 6, because I'm sure you'll finish it this year. You're almost done! I've been stitching too and I joined that group on Facebook. You guys that do HAED kits and stitch on linen or evenweave just amaze me. I stick to Aida!

  4. You've made good progress on all of your projects. Looks like you'll be finished with the calendar piece after a few more rotations.

  8. Nice progress on everything. Every little bit helps, and maybe next round you'll feel more like it's made a difference. The 1 over 1 skin on Archangel looks amazing!

  10. I love all you stitching, the Archangel is amazing and I love the pumpkin in the sampler =)
    Starting something new for your birthday sounds great =) My birthday is in January and since I usually start something on the first of January, I don't do an additional start ;-) But since I start new things all the time, it's not that bad :D
