WIPocalypse April

I haven’t worked on Do Not Disturb this month at all.  Not quite the backlash I expected from working on it so much last month, but there you go.

Of course, I have worked on other things.  Today, I’m working on this.

Spells by The Stitcherhood as found in the 2012 JCS Halloween special issue.  It will be done as soon as I give up and put in the last color on the pattern and stop trying to change it.  This would be a good thing since the SAL I’m participating in calls for it to be finished (as in ornament) by tomorrow. Sure thing!

Do Not Disturb will be back next month bigger and better than ever.  Slightly bigger at least.

Happy stitching World.

Ornament SAL April

Well, I started two different pieces for my ornament sals this month.  Which means I have a slight head start for a future month. J I do have one finish.

Santa is design #284 from the book 365 Christmas Designs by Kooler Designs.  I left the striped stockings but I had to change the eyes.  For some reason they were charted in the same red as his coat.  Too weird!!

IHSW April results

It’s snowing again!?

On a cheerier note, no more Doctors L Yet! But a little more Mal.

Mostly boots and backstitch to go.  Something for next month’s IHSW if not sooner.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and an even better week to come.  And I know I never say it enough but thanks for all your views and comments.

Happy stitching World.

Start with a Finish

So I thought up this cool blog title. J  Then I had to make it come true.  Here’s the result.


Doctor #2 by Dork Stitch.  Now I just have 4 & 9 to go.  I would say I’d work on them this weekend, but Mal is clamoring for attention.  Which also means I could put them all aside and work on something else!  At least IHSW is off to a good start.

Happy stitching World.

Theme-A-Licious Mid April

It’s Amazon April!  So far I’ve worked on my biggest picture, The Summer Ball, twice.  The impressive part of that would be if it was twice as large as it was before.  Not yet, but it is bigger.


For my Santa ornament for the month I picked one from the book, 365 Christmas Designs by Kooler Designs.  White on antique white is as much fun as white on white (who knew).  Still, that part is done and things should get more colorful from now on.


I leave you today with one final thought.  If it’s the 15th of April, why is this the view out of my door? J


Happy stitching World.

YOTA April update

I started off deciding to finish the orange thread that was left over in the Theme-a-licious wrap up picture.  After that I was in the mood to keep going.  So ta-da, the chair is finished on both sides to the bottom of the cat.

So now I just have to find another skein of floss to finish the bottom of the chair.

In the meantime to celebrate Sprite Stitch April (see Dork Stitch’s blog here), I give you the 11th Doctor.

Can the 2nd, 4th, and 9th Doctors be far behind?  Depends on how fast I stitch. J

Happy stitching World.

Theme-A-Licious March wrap up

March madness has been good to me.  There was progress on both the Retro Cat

And Do Not Disturb.

The challenge for April will be to keep making progress while adding in the Ballroom picture for Amazon April.  Fun!

No ornament for March but I’m looking forward to trying to decide on a Santa.  Or better than that, more than one!!

Happy stitching World.
