Theme-A-Licious May wrap-up

Monochrome May went fairly well.  I finished the first half of my future needlebook (or something).


There was a little more progress on the Santa.


Jumanji June will either see the return of the sheep I was working on earlier or more Hooties.  J

Happy stitching World.

Ornament SAL May

Here’s my almost done ornament for the month.


His name is Iron Hootie.  For real.  He’s part of a set called Superhero Hooties.  You can find him and many others at  Hootie Central.

This one will be finished as soon as I decide how to attach him to that black felt he’s sitting on.

Happy stitching World.

WIPocalypse May

In an effort to avoid a, “Whoops I forgot to stitch on this” post, I took out Do Not Disturb on Sunday.  Freed from its hiding place, I added some more sand on the right side.


Once I was stitching, it was easy to make plans for more progress.  It was just as easy to put away again for my other distractions.  Some of which I plan to post before the week is done.  All while hoping I remember to take the Retro Cat out so I don’t have to make a Whoops post for YOTA this Saturday.

IHSW - May 2013

Let’s see, what did I work on this weekend?  Little bits here and there.

We have a little more Mal.

A little more blue.



And a little more red.


Pretty good weekend overall.  Hope yours was too.

Happy stitching World.

Theme-A-Mid May

Tragically, I feel as if I haven’t exploited the full potential of Monochrome May.  I only have two new starts to report. J

One is from the French blog Le blog de Louison.  She has, at last count, 178 different biscornu patterns. Very inspirational and well worth a look.  My current plan is to take two and turn them into my first needle book.  Here’s my progress so far.


For the Christmas side, I decided on this little Santa.  The pattern is by Lesley Teare from an issue of Cross Stitcher Celebrations.


IHSW is this weekend.  Perfect time for more new starts and even a finish.  Dream big right?

Happy stitching World.

May is going to be a good month.  Why not, right?  Yesterday I got out the Retro Cat and filled in more of the darker purple.

And when I combine YOTA with Theme-A-Licious Monochrome May, its all the more reason to work on those big blocks of color.

Here’s to a good month for everyone.  Check out all the YOTA participants here.

Happy stitching World.

Theme-A-Licious April Wrap Up

Ok, so I admit I kind of missed the target on Amazon April.  But I did stitch at least once on my biggest project along with all my other stitching, I’m pretty happy with that.

Monochrome May should be fun.  I’ve picked out a Santa I want to start that’s all done in 321.  And I like Heather’s idea of working on just one color in a bigger project.  What about one color in a bunch of smaller projects?  Ha, ha, more starts!!!

Happy stitching World.
