Month In Review

Sunday, February 1, 2009.
Wow a month has gone by so fast. I thought I would do a Month in Review.

Well This month saw me start off with Page 1 of Water by HAED. Stitching it 1 over 1 on 28ct Lugana. It is turning out beautiful. That page was a very fast stitch I think as there wasn't much confetti to stitch.

After I was going to hit page 7 of Wild Horses but alas I really didn't want to stitch more Blue. Don't get me wrong I like Blue but needed a break. So I switched to Freedom For All by Kustom Krafts. It definetly went fast. I absolutely loved Stitching Page 2 of the Design as it was more of the Horses Head.

Well after I finished page 2 of FFA, I decided to turn my attentions to another over 1 stitching and that was Revelation. My goal for that was to to get 1/2 way done on Page 1. Well I did meet this goal. It is stitched on 32ct Lugana 1 over 1. It is absolutely wonderful to stitch I am enjoying it. I hope to finish page 1 in February.

This Year I am participating in 3 SAL's.

The First one I'm participating on is Monopoly Sal. I was able to work on it yesterday at the Stitch in at the LNS. I was able to get the Free Parking square done. I will be doing a square a month in this SAL. So Today I will work on Kentucky. Stitched 2 over 2 on 32 ct Joblan Waterlilly

The Second SAL I'm working on is a Kustom Kraft Sal that I am starting today. So no picture is available.
The Third SAL I'm working on is the Chatelaine Myster XII. I'm still waiting for my supplies to show up so I can start and work on Part 1 and Part 2. Here is a picture of what the supplies look like.

Yesterday I was at the Stitch in at my favorite LNS in Cochrane. The shop is called The Stitching Corner Every 2 months they have a 12 hour Stitch in. They have about 15 people show up and we can sit there and stitch. They feed us snacks through out the day and then provide Dinner. We also have draws on little door prizes and a big door prize. I won a chart called Marty Bell's Telegraph Hill Light House. I love it. Also we had coloured nametags and that colour was the indication of our free gift. We got Tins in pink green and yellow. My name tag was green so I got a green tin with a girl on it by Mary Engelbreit. It is so cute. Also I was a little bad. I did buy a chart and it is the New Mirabilia. It is so pretty. But the bonus is we got 20% off and I only had 50 dollars to spend. Well guess what I got 10 back lol. Cause that included my threads I needed the fabric I bought of Monopoly and the Chart so I think I did really good. Here are the pictures of my purchase, my gift and my winning.

So for my February goals are

1. Finish Feb Square for Monopoly

2. Finish Part 1 and 2 of Mystery XII

3. Finish Page 1 of KK Mystery SAL

4. Finish page 1 of Revelation

5. Finish page 6 of Wild Horses

6. FInish 1/2 of a Page on Water.

I will be very busy on stitching this month.

For Reading I am reading Warrior on the Wolfblade Trilogy by Jennifer Fallon. I hope to finish this book.

Well before this turns into a novel I'm going to go watch the Super Bowl and Stitch. Happy Stitching

Super progress on all, you are really flying on those smaller counts! Can't believe you can get in ANY reading with all the stitching you are doing! You've got several hours before the game starts.....stitch away!

Wow Terri! You're making some great progress, and I love the items you won at the LNS!

You do absolutely beautiful work, and I can't wait to see them finished. I love the Mirabilia chart you bought, it is so beautiful. I looked at it, but it's a little beyond my price range just now!

Nice recap! I enjoyed reading it. I picked up Venetian Opulence and supplies this weekend also. When you starting yours? : )

Great work for January!
When you do the Mystery charts from Chateline, do they send you all of the material to do it, or do you need to hunt it all down yourself?

Great progress on your projects, I've not even managed half a page on my HEAD project yet, I have only got a corner done to be honest lol...

Dawn said...
