Pretty Little Italy Finish!

I was able to finish Pretty Little Italy early Saturday morning!
It was stitched on Tarnished Silver from Under the Sea Fabrics with the called for DMC Floss. It was a relatively easy stitch.

I started a Halloween stitch for my next project called Patterned Pumpkin from Cross Eyed Cricket. It seems to be going well also. It will be my concentration for the next few weeks.

Happy Stitching Everyone!

Monthly Goals - October 2016

I realized as I look back on my Blog for this year I have not kept up with my progress like I would have liked. I asked myself the tools I used to stay up the date and one of the best was monthly goals.
October 2016 Monthly Goals:
  1. No craft stash shopping
  2. Blog once per week
  3. Finish a dish rag a week
  4. Complete Pretty Little Italy
  5. Finish Purple Zig Zag Quilt top
  6. Start ornaments for the holidays.

Hopefully they are achievable as I have a vacation at the end of the month.

Happy stitching everyone!

Our House

I have a finish! I was working on Lizzie & Kate's "Our House" as my travel stitch and I finished it a week ago. I haven't been able to take a pic until now.
I can't remember the Fabric except that it is Weeks Dye Works (I think?). For some reason, on this stitch, I frogged a lot. I kept getting off on the placement of some of the letters. I do really like how it turned out and I will be taking it to the framers soon. I have just the place to hang this one. :) I am also almost done with Pretty Little Italy. Hopefully I will have a pic to post by Monday.

I also finished a baby blanket this past week but gave it away before I took a pic. I need to get ahead of the baby blankets in the next few months or I am not setting myself up for success for next year.

Happy Stitching Everyone!
