Nativity Update!

Hi everyone! (If anyone is still following me...)

I am so sorry that I haven't updated since June.  It's been a rough couple of months as I've dealth with the anniversaries of my mom's death and my husband's brain surgery - plus we had to put down our dog last weekend. :(  But I have something happy on the stitching front, I have 2 pages finished on The Nativity since June.  I was hoping for three pages, but this one seemed to have a LOT of confetti.  Either that or I just couldn't concentrate... not sure which!

Here's my progress...

I need to put in a few extra hours on it if I want to finish this row by the end of December!!

Thanks for stopping by!



End of Row!

HAED The Nativity, 18 Count, 2x1, June 27, 2016 - end of page 16

Well, the picture isn't the greatest, but the feeling of completing a whole row of pages since January 1st is AMAZING!! : )  On to the next goal of completing another full row by Christmas!!!


Nativity Update

Hi everyone!

It's been a ton of time since I last posted an update on my Nativity project!  I'm currently on the middle of page 15 and on track to finish this row of pages by June 30th, which was my goal.  I'm so thrilled!  If I can keep this pace up, I'll have another row finished by the end of the year.  I really hope to finish this by next September, or so!!  Here's where it is currently...

Having a good bit of sky in this top section has helped it to go a little more quickly, but the rest of this page and most of the next row will be confetti stitching with all of the gorgeous robes and people to work on.  It's really going to start taking shape!

Thanks for following along with me as I stitch this piece.  I know that I haven't had much to blog about since I started working on this project only, but I really find it relaxing and I'm thoroughly enjoying the journey of seeing a masterpiece come to life.

Have a blessed day!

Free to Take

Hi friends!

I have a few patterns that I'd love to pass along!  I'll post pictures here and you can leave a note in the comments as to which ones you'd like to be in the draw for.  (As many as you'd like!)  I'll draw for winners Monday, March 14th if more than one person would like a specific pattern.  I hate to do it, but my pocketbook says it will have to be US only this time, unless you wouldn't mind paying the overseas postage.  Thanks so much !!


Nativity Update!

This is SO much fun!  I love seeing the faces appear!!  Click on the picture to see it larger...

I have one more column to go on this page (page 11).  I'd love to finish the page by the 5th, and I'd aim to finish the next one by the end of March.  I really am enjoying stitching the 10x10 blocks with full coverage - each one feels like a little finish and each little finish brings me a step closer to the full picture.  It's like piecing together a puzzle and watching the picture appear!

Hopefully I'll have another page to show you at the end of the month!

Thanks for stopping by!



Lots of Stitching

Hi again!

I was able to get in quite a bit of stitching this weekend, so I thought I'd post another update...

I just love seeing this come together!!  Here's a closer picture of the first wise man...

Thanks for looking!
