Stitchers Wallet Progress

Although I haven't been doing a very good job with keeping up with blog entries, I have been doing pretty well with stitching on my Stitchers Wallet. I forgot to take a photo last week - I hadn't done too much - so here is a photo as it looks from yesterday. I would say I'm about 1/2 way done this panel at this point.

I've also been working on a Christmas exchange ornament and on Sunday's I've been pulling out my HAED Storey Keeper and working on that. It seems to take forever to do one 10x10 square on the chart but I've made pretty good progress the last few weeks.

Halloween Exchange Received

Yesterday I received the most wonderful package in the mail from Donna in Canada. She was my exchange partner for the Halloween exchange in my Yahoo group. Donna stitched me the most adorable pillow which I promptly displayed with some of my other decorations.

She also included a piece of the cute fabric she used to complete the pillow, some wonderful socks that I immediately wore to a dinner party that evening, a piece of fabric from Enchanted Fabrics called Witches Brew, GAST Black Crow and Carries Threads Harvest Brew, pumpkin stickers, napkins and a cute felt pumpkin bag, some great scrapbooking ribbons and a paper garland. I just love everything!

Stitchers Wallet Progress

It was 9:15pm by the time I sat down to work on my SAL piece so I didn't get too much completed. I worked on it a bit more over coffee this morning and here is my progress. I've now put in two of the little over one letters. I think they turned out okay. Having managed to get past the 1/2 way point on this project, I am really hoping to keep the momentum going and get it completed by the end of the year. That includes the sewing together part!

I Think I Remember how to do this....

Blog that is! It's been quite a while since I last sat down to write something. The three or so weeks since I've been back from vacation have been the craziest in quite a long time. I had some stitching deadlines, some book reading deadlines and lots of stuff going on with work so my time on the computer was limited to trying to keep up with emails.

I have not spent much time on my Stitcher's Wallet SAL - just too tired or not enough time to work on it but I did managed to get a bit done since I last posted a pic. The date on the photo doesn't mean I stitched on it last Friday, just that I pulled it out and thought about it! I hope to get back to my regular Friday stitching on this piece this Friday.

Yesterday was UFO Sunday with my Yahoo group and I decided to pull out my HAED Storey Keeper. I can't remember the last time I stitched on her but it was a LONG time ago. This time I managed to get two 10 by 10 squares done. I really enjoyed stitching on this piece so I'm going to leave it out and see if I can get on a regular Sunday stitch schedule with it.

I'm also going to work on my blog reading to catch up with everyone. Sorry I haven't been by but I'm working on it!
