A Day Behind

Yesterday was Gifted Gorgeousness hosted by Jo at Serendipitous Stitching
She has been finishing a lot of things and is inspiring me. I am almost thinking about stitching just one piece at a time. NOT!

But the only piece that I am currently working on that is a gift is Grace by Terri Bay.
I have finished the eyelets around the edges and now need to put some in the satin stitches and the centers of motifs,etc. I like this piece because once you start doing a section of it, it becomes fairly mindless. The big question is whether it will get done for Christmas.

Stitched A Bit

I finally just forced myself to sit down and stitch. I wanted to pull something new from the basement, but refrained.
Here is the piece from the last time I showed it to you:
 And here it is today!
I didn't do all of that in one fell swoop. I am a slow stitcher. But it was nice to stitch for several hours and see progress made.

I spent time this morning cleaning my basement. I emptied some boxes and threw some stuff away. I still have lots to do as I still can't find the bed. But I wanted to post this and I had some other computer work to do. I will do a little more housework and then back to the basement! I would much rather finger through my stash the clean the bathroom!

Life is Crazy

And when it is this crazy, I don't stitch. Or at least not much. Here is the last photo I have of Melchior from August:
 And here he is now!
Nope. Not getting done before Christmas. And yesterday I realized I have a Christmas stocking that I was stitching for myself lurking in the basement. Next week I am giving myself permission to do some serious stitching!

Cloudy Day Photo

Just so you know that I am doing a little stitching between getting my talk ready for my quilt guild. I just keep hoping they don't fall asleep!
 The above is the last photo I showed you.
I have finished the satin stitch around the squares and have been doing cables. I like doing one item and completing it.
FYI: Terri Bay is going to be teaching at San Bernardino Chapter of ANG . They are allowing ghosts!

I Finished A Heart!

I should be working on my crazy quilt class, but stitched this instead.

I tried to post this last Wednesday, but Blogger would not allow it. So sad.
Today is the last day of Gay Ann Roger's E-Week sale. There isn't much left. I wish I had purchased her Echoes II piece but I refrained. Did you get anything? I know some are unhappy with her as she does not ship overseas and will not send threads, etc after a certain amount of time. But as I have kitted a few things for my guild and had to ship a few things, I understand where she is coming from.

Framed!

I just picked these up from the framer. I was so happy to get them back before Halloween.
 The Kitty is for my daughter.
 Ghost is for a friend who did some weeding for me.
Too cute!

WIP Catherine's Heart

I thought you would like to see my progress on this piece:
I should be working on a crazy quilt square, but this is what calls to me now.
