Victorian Christmas SAL

I'm a bit behind but I'm loving this SAL. 

Part Two came out Sunday so I need to get my needle flying.  Thank you so much Gaynor for this SAL.  It's not to late to join in the fun!!!

Unwelcome Visitor and a SAL

The weekend was super busy for us.  The fair started last week and continues this week.  DS is in 4-H so we helped with a display.  The display took second place.  Then Homecoming was also this weekend at the school DS attends.  He marched in the parade on Friday and then went to the dance on Saturday.  Yes, DS went on his first group date.  They had a great time and all went well. 

Since it was so busy, I really didn't have time to stitch until Sunday evening.  As soon as I started I realized I had made a mistake in the turkey and had to frog.  So I'm back to where I was.  No real progress. 

I'm super excited about a SAL.  It just started and will run for 9 weeks.  And it's a Christmas SAL!  Christmas is my very favorite time of year!  You can find details about the SAL here.  Well I'm off to get everything together and hopefully start stitching soon.  This is the first time I've done a SAL and I'm really excited.  Please join us!!!

I'm here

I know you've probably been wondering where I was.  Maybe even given up hope that I would post again.  All I can say is that life tried to take a bite out of me, but I survived!  I still have some loose ends to tie up, but I'm trying to get back to normal - whatever that is.

I had really lost all of my stitching mojo.  In fact, I stopped for awhile.  I started back a couple of weeks ago.  But I really needed something simple so for now I've put my HAED to the side.  Never fear, I will go back to stitching on it.

I just finished this simple little Halloween freebie.  Sorry for the wrinkles.  I plan to frame it and put it in my office.  Of course, I need to get on this or it will be too late!

Then I started another freebie for Thanksgiving.  My plan is to stitch something for each month and rotate them in my office.  Again sorry for the wrinkles....

That's all for now.  I'll try not to be gone for so long again.  It's good to be back.
