Turtle Trot 2015

Travel mucks with the posting schedule…

Three of my ten pieces saw action this month.

Mill Hill Wanda’s Witchery has a little more progress.  I worked on the outside frame:

Sunday Stitches

I’m a homebody.  Of course, this may surprise you given the amount of travel I do for work, but I truly prefer to curl up on my own couch each and every night with needle in hand.  So far this year, it’s been one busy weekend after another and I finally got a quiet one!  Minimal errands. DVR full of good stuff and stitching galore (that’s never an issue).

I finished part one of Lizzie Kate’s Things Unseen Sampler:

The fabric is 32-ct PTP Wren and Weeks flosses.  I’m *very* tempted to start part 3 (the bottom) and then do part 2.  I’m ornery that way, I suppose 😉  We’ll see what happens next weekend!

I also put in the first stitches on January’s Hands on Design “Year in Chalk”  this morning.

January Year in Chalk

 

 

This is 30-ct WDW Gunmetal linen.  January calls for Chalk and Tropical Ocean GAST.

You may have noticed the increased use of QSnaps lately (or you may not – no worries).  While I still consider myself an “in-hand” stitcher primarily, the ‘snaps are definitely handy for linens and opening up the holes.

Getting old sucks.
