Temperature is moving forward

Temperature - August 6th
Another week has come and gone and yes I was able to find a bit of time to get some stitching done and I am pretty happy with the progress that I was able to make on two projects this week.  Sure it would have been nice to see some more progress on them but I am not complaining because I have been able to get something done and that is what is important.

Temperature - now I have been trying to work on this project most days and I am continuing to try and get at least 4 half rows done each day through the end of August and I have been able to do that.  I am currently keeping up with that stitching and it makes me feel great as I am now seeing that June is starting to come together or at least the highs for June are getting completed.  I decided that I was going to try and work on one colour at a time instead of constantly changing colours and I think that is helping me because it means that I just work on one colour until it is done for the month and then I can start the next colour.
Temperature - August 12th

I am happy that I have the line at the bottom which is July 1st as it shows me that I am getting closer to having the highers done and then I will be able to work on getting the lows all stitched and then I will be able to get moving onto July and maybe getting a little closer to actually being caught up on this piece.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL'18 - August 6th


Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '18 - I was able to get a few threads done on this piece this week as well.  I haven't been able to focus on it as much as I would have liked but at least it is continuing to see a bit of attention and that does help.  I am thinking that if I can spend one evening this coming week working on this I might be able to see some better progress on it.  I am not sure what evening I will be able to work on it but it would be nice to see that I am getting closer to having this section finished before the end of August.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL'18 - August 10th

I have tried to figure out how to get this piece finished quickly so that I will have a bit of a break from it before the September section is released.  I figure focusing on it for a couple of evenings might help so that is why I have said I am going to try and work on it at least one evening this week and then I will see how things go.  For the size of this months section there is a lot of detail and maybe that is what is getting me.  I haven't been able to get into a rhythm on the piece yet so will see how things move forward.


I continue to get on a few other projects but until they are closer to being finished I haven't taken a picture of them yet.  I hope to be able to get these other projects also moved forward and then I can take some pictures and let you see what else I have been working on.

This week I again have work that needs to be done and then I am going to try and get some crafting done in the evenings.  Hopefully, I will have more to show you on the projects that I have been working on next week.  Until then, have a great week and hopefully, you will be able to also find a little bit of time to craft as well.

Things getting moved forward

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 28
Another week has come and gone and the weather has been extremely hot and humid here so that means it is difficult to really get a lot of things done.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - August 6

Temperature - July 19
 Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - the pattern was released on time as usual and it appeared around 8 am on the 31st of July which is August 1st in Australia where the designer lives.  I had decided that I wasn't going to put any stitches in the August piece until August 1st here and that is what I did. 

The pattern is of two phoenix and they look amazing so now to work on getting the two of them done over the next couple of weeks.  I know that being able to continue to see progress on this piece would make me very happy and that is what I am going to try and do.  I try and put at least two threads a day in on one of my projects and sometimes it is Mystery SAL and other days it is something else.

Temperature - now, this is the project that got a lot of attention this week and that is because I decided that I wanted to try and get it  moved forward.  I am behind on the stitching of this piece as before I picked it up on July 30th I only had through around the 12th of May done which didn't make me happy.  Yes, I am really behind on this project so it does need some attention if my goal is to have it finished early in January 2019.
Temperature - August 5

After sitting down and figuring out how I was going to get this project moved forward and caught up I decided to just work on May and see how quickly I could get it stitched and on August 5th I am happy to say that May is now done an dI have just started working on June.

Temperature - August 6
On the third picture that is where I stopped last night and I had decided that I was going to try and mark where July 1st was so those are the red and orange lines that are appearing at the bottom of the piece. It does make me feel good knowing how big a month is and then I can work on getting it all filled in.  I hope that I can get June finished up this month as well because I want to see that I am finally getting back to where I can stitch the day befores temperature and that's it.  Right now I am trying to stitch two days temperatures each day so that might help me get it somewhat caught up quickly.

Other crafts - I have been working on a few other crafts over the last couple of weeks and now I am just waiting to have them finished before I take pictures of them.  I have been having a lot of fun figuring out the various ideas that have been bouncing around in my head and some of them are now getting made and hopefully the end results will be what I expected.


The forecast for this week is another hot and humid week so will see what actually gets done.  I have quite a bit of work that needs my attention so that is going to be the focus and then will see how much stitching/crafting time I have in the evenings.

A small finish

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 22
It is Monday morning and I am sitting and looking out the window before I start getting the work done that is on my to do list for today.

It was a good week for me with regards to my stitching as I was able to see some progress on one project.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 28
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '18 - now this is the project that seems to have got all my attention in the last week and the reason for that is because I wanted to see that I could get the section finished before the August section is posted.  It was a lot of fun to work on but I have to admit that the unicorn did take quite a while for me to stitch it.  After the unicorn was finished the rest of the section went very quickly and now I am waiting for the August section to be posted.

I am looking forward to seeing what the next section includes because that is always a lot of fun to see the piece and then read everyone else's reaction to the section in the Facebook group.  I enjoy seeing all the different versions of this same pattern as well each month as people will do their own colour versions of it and sometimes will change little parts of the section as well.  


Besides working on this piece I really didn't do any crafting this week and part of it was being busy with work obligations meant that I didn't have as much time to stitch or do any knitting or crocheting.  I will see what this week has in store as it is month end for us so that also means a couple of busy days for me getting the month end work completed and getting ready for the next month.

I have some craft ideas that I hope to be able to work on over the next week or so and then I will show some pictures but until then I have work that needs my attention so I better get to getting it off the long list for today.

It is a long weekend for us in Ontario this coming weekend but as a small business owner we may have some time to ourselves but we may be working as well.  Work doesn't stop for us just because it is a weekend or even a long weekend but that is fine as we both enjoy the work that we are doing. I hope to be able to find some time to craft over the weekend and will show you what gets accomplished when I post again.

Moving forward again

The weather was a little cooler this week which also meant that I was able to spend some evenings stitching which made me feel so much better.  Just seeing the progress that I have been able to make feels nice and how to see what I can do over the next week.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '18 - July 15th
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '18 - now this is the project that I decided was going to be something that I focused on this week as I would really like to get this section done before the end of the month.  I have been focusing a lot of my stitching time which is the evenings after work to sit and see how much of this I could get done.  As you can see this week I have been able to finish the left side of the section and now I am working on the right side.  I hope to be able to get this section done before the end of this week so that I have a bit of a break before August is released.  I really do like this entire design and am looking forward to seeing the entire piece at some point.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '18 - July 22nd

I decided that I was going to try to finish the outline of the unicorn last night as it means that I can see a lot of something finished up quickly when I can just sit and fill in an area instead of having to always be counting each row.

Temperature - July 9
Temperature -  I finally was able to pick up temperature again and get a few more rows done on it.  I am hoping to be able to spend some more time on it and maybe I will see more of it done before the end of the month as well.  I know that being able to get this moving forward would also help me feel like I am getting back to the level of stitching that I was able to do earlier in the year.

Temperature - July 19th
The colours that I am currently working with are also nice because they are the brighter colours so that has helped me want to pick up this piece and see how much of it I could get done.

All Dogs Go To Heaven - well as I have mentioned there was one pattern that I have wanted to start and finally on Friday I decided it was time to actually start this piece and see how much of it I could get done.  This is going to be around 18 inches x 14 inches when it is finished on 18 count Aida and it is a full coverage piece  (83,525 stitches) so yes it is going to be taking me a very long time to finish it.  

All Dogs Go To Heaven - July 20th
I know that I am going to be working on this piece a bit at a time or at least one page at a time so that I don't feel like it is as big as it really is.  I was happy with the progress that I was able to make on Friday on the piece so now to see when I can pick it up again and get some more work done on it.  I am going to try and finish one page at a time so that should help me see some progress and then maybe after a while I will start to see some of the clouds appear and that will also help.  I know that even on the first page that I am working on has the first dog in the cloud so maybe if I can focus on this piece I will start to see the dogs sooner than I really think.


I am happy with the progress that I was able to make on my pieces this week and will see how things go.  Work is keeping me busy so that means that I don't have a lot of time but when it is cooler in the evenings it means that I can sit and stitch and see some progress.

It is now time for me to try and get some of the work done that is on my plate for this week and then maybe in the evenings I will be able to pick up a project and see how much I can get done.  The Mystery SAL is the first project that will be getting attention this week to see if I can get it done and then I will see which project I pick up after that.  Hope everyone has a good week and if you are stitching hope you enjoy your time.





Monday, July 16, 2018

Progress again

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 7
Here it is another week and yes I was able to find a little bit of time to sit and stitch. Now to see what this coming week is going to be like as I would like to continue to see some progress on at least one of the projects if not more.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 15

Temperature - July 1
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '18 - I have been able to get some stitching done on this piece and it makes me happy to see that the June/July section is finally starting to come together.  I finished the middle section and am now trying to focus on getting the lion finished up.  I had outlined some of the body of the lion so if I was outside and wanting to stitch I could work on it without needing the pattern.  Well, that didn't happen but I will be filling in the lion quickly and then see if I can get the head of it done.

Temperature - July 9
Temperature - now this piece got just a little bit of attention this week and it was to help me get more of the guide colours done in the center of the piece. I wanted to know which colour was each day because then it means that I can take this project outside when I want to stitch and don't need to take the paper with me just the floss.  I hope that this week I can get some of the stitching done on it because it would make me feel so much better seeing that I am starting to get this piece caught up.

I love seeing the colours that are now appearing more often on this design because yes as the temperature has been going up the colours have been getting brighter.  What is surprising me is how many days so far this year we have been over 30C and that is the colour I wasn't sure I would be using much this summer considering last year was a cooler one.


This week I am hoping to be able to spend some time working on getting some more stitching done but it will all depend on the work schedule.  I have a few things that I am in need of doing this week so those need to get done and then hopefully some evenings I will be able to sit and stitch.

If you are dealing with the heat and humidity like we are, I hope you are staying cool.  The forecast is for warm days this week but hopefully, after today, we won't be seeing temperatures feeling like 39C until at least next week.  Hope everyone has a great week and hopefully you will be able to find time to do the things that you love doing.



Monday, July 9, 2018

Some actual progress

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 2
Here it is the end or beginning of another week and I can at least say that I made some progress on one of my stitching projects.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL '18 - this is the project that got my stitching time this week.  It wasn't as much stitching time as I would have liked but with the heat and humidity that we were dealing with I am very happy with the progress that I was able to make on this piece.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 7

I was determined to get something done would make me happy so I decided to start working on the crest which is the center piece of this month and I think the entire design.  This crest is in the middle of the entire piece of fabric so I am happy with how it is turning out.  I still need to add the D to the crest but considering how busy we have been getting this amount of the crest done this week makes me happy.

The line below the crest is the bottom on this section so yes it is a rather large section that I am working on.  My goal is to still get this entire section done by the end of July so that means that I will have to make sure that I can continue to find time to work on it.


Other projects - I am crocheting and doing a bit of knitting but nothing worth taking a picture of yet.  I hope that after this week I might have something to show. I also have another cross-stitch or two that I would like to start but I am thinking that I need to get the June/July section of Mystery SAL finished first and then if there is time at the end of the month I can start working on another project.  Temperature also needs to have a lot of attention so that is something else that I am trying to fit in over the next couple of weeks.


Work has been keeping me busy so I really haven't had a lot of time to sit and craft and also the heat was something that was another impact last week.  I hope that this week I will be able to manage the late hours and maybe I will see a bit more crafting time but will have to see how the week goes.  I do know that the week is busy so crafting time is going to be down.

Hope everyone has a great week and you are able to get the crafting done that you would like to do.  If you can't find all the time you want but you get little bits of time, enjoy them as well.

Moving things forward and a finish

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - June 23
Here it is the beginning of another week and I actually have something to show.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - June 29
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - now this is a project that I was determined to work on in June as I wanted to get the May section of it done.  I finally was able to get the section finished on June 29th so that means that I could finally start working on the June/July section.

The June/July section is a big section so that is going to take me some time to get it done but I have at least been able to make a bit of a start on it.  I hope that over the rest of July that I can get close if not finished the section so that I am back being caught up on this piece.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - July 2
The other nice thing about this piece is knowing that I have been able to start close to being caught up so hopefully by the end of the I will have a finish either in December or early in January 2019.

Temperature - June 24
Temperature - this piece finally got some attention this week and it made me happy as I was finally able to get the April temperatures finished.  Yes, I am still way behind but I am thinking that now that I have figured out a method of stitching this piece it might go a little quicker or at least I am hoping that it will.

Temperature - July 1
The other thing about this piece is now that I am stitching into May the brighter colours are now starting to appear more often and that makes me feel so much better.  I know that even in May we had a couple of extremely warm days so the brightest colour will be appearing shortly.

I am hoping that in July I will be able to focus on getting this piece also worked on as I would like to see that I am getting closer to being caught up and not two months behind like I am currently.

Pink Shawl - finished
Pink Shawl - this is the project that I have been working on and didn't want to post a picture of until it was finished and gifted to the person.

Pink Shawl - close-up
The shawl was a Bernat pattern that was included on the ball of yarn and it knit up relatively quickly.  I didn't work on it as much as I had hoped when I first started it but I knew that I wanted it finished in June so that meant that after a few days of working around 2,000 stitches a day I was able to have a finish.

The shawl was gifted on Friday and hopefully, the person receiving it will enjoy wearing it.

I will be knitting this shawl again as I have a skein of the yarn in a Teal colour and I would like to get it finished so that I can wear my version of the same shawl when the temperature cools off some.  Right now, the weather is pretty hot and humid here so there isn't any need for a shawl as we are having days of 35C and with a humidex of around 42C and the evenings are still in the 20C's so it is still pretty warm out.


I have a bunch more projects that I would like to work on but right now I am going to be trying to focus on getting Temperature caught up and even the Linen and Threads Mystery SAL caught up.

I have work that needs my attention now so I am thinking that I will stop writing here for this week and see what work I can get done.  I also hope to be able to spend some time this week in the evenings working on a project as I would like to see some more progress on at least one of the designs before the end of next weekend.

Progress and a bit of fun

Temperature June 14
Here it is another week has gone by but at least I have a bit of progress to show which makes me feel a little better about things.  I know that I would love to find some more time to stitch so I hope that I can do that over the next week or so.

Temperature June 24
Temperature - I have finally started to work on getting this piece caught up and am starting to feel a little better about it.  I still need to finish up getting the highs for April done and then start working on May but at least I am finally starting to see some progress on this piece.  I hope to be able to continue work on it and maybe finally start to see that I have a chance of getting caught up on it.  I am thinking that if I can at least get the colours figured out for each day and get them stitched right in the centre of the piece it means then I can just sit and work on a colour at a time when I have the chance to stitch and really don't want to count or focus on a project.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL June 13
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - I am slowly getting the May part of this piece moved forward.  I was hoping to get May done before now but for some reason, I just haven't been able to work on the piece for very long.  I keep trying to do at least two threads a day on the piece but it hasn't been working so now I need to figure out how to get the project moving forward again.  I got behind in May and now to try and get caught up and then I might feel better about things.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL June 23

One of my ideas has been to try and start working on the June/July block as well as that might help me want to get the May piece done.  I keep looking at the June/July piece and want to see how it will turn out so maybe I will start working on it as well as continue to work on the May piece.  I am not sure what I will do right now but will have to try a few things to get back to getting this piece moved forward.

A few new needleminders
Needleminders - this is something that I have wanted to do for a while so just over a week ago I got all the magnets out and the items that I wanted to use for the needleminders.  It took a bit of time to get everything set up but after finding the glue that would hold the magnets to the various items we sat down and get all of these done.  I am already using three or four of the ones that we made so that is why there are gaps on the board.

I have a needleminder on most of my cross-stitch projects as it is a great way to keep track of where your needle is when you aren't stitching.  As you can see quite a few of the designs are butterflies which are my favourite but I have also used some bottle caps as well as some buttons and charms.  I have a few more that I would like to make but need to pick up some more of the smaller magnets before I can finish up with the rest of the items that I have.

The needleminders are a lot of fun to make and very simple because all you have to do is add a magnet to the back of something that you want to use as a needleminder.  When you go to use the actual needleminders you just put another magnet until the fabric and now you have something that will keep your needle close at hand without having to put it into the fabric.


 This week is hopefully going to be a good week where I can get lots of work done during the day but also have some time in the evenings to do some crafting.  I am not sure what I will be working on but I know that I have a bit of a chance to make some progress on at least one of the projects.

Things moving forward

Grace Face - April 7
The week saw a little bit of stitching and that makes me happy and now to see how things get done this next week.

Grace Face - June 17
Grace Face by Heaven and Earth - here is a project that hasn't seen a lot of attention for the last few months.  I decided that it was time to finally pick things up. Of course, I picked up this project on Sunday and finally did a little bit of stitching on it.  I wasn't able to get much done but at least I was able to find an hour to sit and work on this project.  I am thinking that I am going to try and see if I can make some progress on this piece over the next couple of weeks.  I know that it is going to take quite a while to actually finish the project but at least I think I might be able to get some progress over the next little while.

I feel like I should be able to slowly get some of this piece done if I try and work on the piece slowly and not stress about things.  I will try and slowly work on the piece and see how things go over the next little while.
Temperature - June 9

Temperature - June 14
Temperature - now I finally picked this piece up and tried to get a little bit of stitching done on it.  I am thinking that just being able to get a little bit more stitching done would make me feel a little better about things. I am still very far behind on this piece so now to see if I can continue to work on it a bit at a time and maybe I will see that I am slowly getting caught up on it.  I know that if I can get April done I will feel a little better about things and I think that will help me feel a little better about things.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - June 9
I am still working on getting all the different temperatures as this is a project that will be working on throughout the rest of the year.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - June 13

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - I am slowly making some progress on this piece as well so will try and see if I can get the May section done and that will help me feel better about things.  I am thinking that if I can get the May section done before the end of June I will feel a little better about things.  I know that just getting May done will make me feel a little better about things.  I have finally been able to get some of the pieces worked on this week and now to see if I can continue to work on it and maybe I will see some progress on it.



Other Projects - I am still working on the gift that I am making and I haven't been able to get it done so now to see if I can get it finished up quickly before the weather gets too warm.  I have also started a baby afghan this week but haven't made much progress on it so I haven't taken a picture of it.  Maybe next week I will be able to show you the progress that I have made on it.


I now am going to try and get some work done before it gets too hot out and then will see if I can find some time to stitch this evening.  I hope to be able to get some progress on something this week and now to figure out which project will get the attention and when.



Monday, June 11, 2018

Slowly getting things done

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - June 1st
Finally I am starting to see a little bit of progress on things. Things are still busy around me so I haven't been able to focus on getting things done so now to see if I can get some more of it done this week.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - now this is a project that I have been trying to move forward a bit at a time considering the next two months have been released.  I am still working on the May section and finally passed the half way point on it.  I hope to be able to continue to work on this project as I would like to get May finished and June started before the actual month of June is over.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - June 9th

I love how this piece is turning out and I am trying to do two threads a day on this piece but there have been days where no threads have been done.  I am now going  so to try and get back to at least getting the two threads done a day and I might finally see this section done before too long.

Temperature - May 6th
Temperature - now this is a project that didn't get any attention for a month so that means that I am really behind on working on this piece. I have finally been able to get back to at least getting a couple of rows done and it is making me feel a little better about things.  I hope that I can focus on this project as well this month and maybe I will see that I am getting caught up on it.

Temperature - June 9th
I am currently still trying to get April finished and then move onto May which I had a couple of days stitched already.  What I am liking about this project is now I am seeing some of the brighter colours appear and the darker colours disappear for a while.  I know that even in May I will having some of the brightest colour appear as we did get over 30C a couple of days.

Other project - I do have another project that I am working on but as it is a gift I am not going to show it until it is finished and delivered to the person that I am making it for. I hope to have the project finished within the next couple of weeks and then once I know the person has received it I will show a picture of it.


Life has still been very busy so it means that my crafting time has been limited but at least I am slowly starting to see that I am finding bits of time where I can sit and stitch which makes me happy.  I also know that even putting a couple of stitches in on a project helps me feel better so that is what I have been doing.

I now have a bunch of things that I need to get done for work so that is what I am off to do.  Have a great week and hopefully next week I will have some more progress on things to show you.

Monday, June 4, 2018

Life has been busy

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - May 13th
So this past week I was able to pick up some stitching a couple of days and have something to show for it.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - now this is the project that got all of my attention this week and as you can see it really didn't get much at all.  I know that just sitting and being able to make some more progress on it would make me happy so that is what I am going to be trying to do in the next few days.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - June 1st
I am still working on the May section of the design and the section for June/July has been released and I really want to get to working on it so I think getting May done is becoming a priority for me.  I really haven't had a lot of time to stitch in the last weeks but am hoping that things are slowly down a bit now and I can get back to seeing some more progress on my projects.


I have been able to get a bit of knitting done as well but again nothing that is worth showing as it just was a few rows on another spiral shawl.  I am thinking that I might get it finished this week is things go well but will see what happens.

I have a bunch of things that need my attention this week so I am not sure how much time I will have to stitch but I am going to see how things go.  I hope to get back to having most evenings where I can at least stitch for half an hour but until then I will work on the pieces as I have the time.

Monday, May 28, 2018

I am around

Here is a quick update on why there haven't been any progress updates. 

I haven't been doing any cross-stitch, knitting or crocheting for the last couple of weeks so there isn't anything to show.  I hope that this week I will be able to get back to doing some of the things I love and have missed doing.  I know that without my crafting there isn't much to say so I will just say that everything is fine with me.

Until next week have a great week and I hope to have something to show when I post again next Monday.

Monday, May 14, 2018

Slow progress this week

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - May 3
Here it is another Monday morning and I am looking back at what I did this week and looking at the progress I notice that there wasn't a lot of actual progress made. There are going to be weeks when there is a lot of time and energy for stitching and then there are weeks like this one where the stitching wasn't something that got a lot of my time or energy.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - now, of course, I am still working on getting the May section fo the piece moved forward and hope to get it finished soon.  I am liking how it is turning out and now to see if I can continue to get this section done before the end of the month.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - May 13
I have not quite reached the halfway mark of this month's piece so I hope to be able to continue on with the stitching this week and get past the halfway mark and will see where it stands when I take a picture of it at the end of next weekend.


Actually, this is all the stitching that I was able to get done this week.  I did a little bit of knitting as well as I am working on a shawl that I want to finish but again it was slow progress on it as well.

Work has been keeping me busy so evenings have been used for catching up on emails and some of the other things that are needed to be done.  I don't mind when this happens and now to see what this week has in store for me.  I have some projects that I need to work on and get moved forward and then I will see how the rest of the week goes.  I hope to be able to spend some time in the evenings and even on the weekend crafting but will see how it goes.

Progress and a new start

Linen and Threads Mystery Sal - April 29
Here it is a start to another week and I am happy with some of the progress that I have been able to make this week.  No, I haven't been able to get a lot of time to do the stitching that I wanted this week but at least I am making some progress on things so that is great.

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - I was able to make some progress on this design over the week but again not as much as I would have liked so now to see if I can continue to work on it this week.  I am going to try and see if I can get some more of this project moved along before the end of the week because it would be nice to see this section finished.
Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - May 3

This section of the Mystery SAL is larger than April section so it means that it is going to be taking me longer to get it finished but if I can at least see some progress on it a bit at a time it would make me happy.  This month I will be using all three of the colours that I have selected for this project so it will be fun to see the different colours added when I get to the different items.  I have two of the three colours already in the design and the third one will be added when I get to the middle of the month section and it will only be used for one small section.

Temperature - April 27
Temperature - now here is a project that I am still behind on working on but at least now I think I have figured out a method to get some of the projects moved forward while also getting it caught up.
Temperature - May 6

What I have decided to do is try and keep May up to date while catching up with the April part of the design.  I have the highs for the first five days of May completed and am currently working on the lows for May.  I think being able to keep up with the month would make me feel better so that is what I am trying to do.  I also hope to be able to get things finished up quickly.

Stitching Row - May 6
Stitching Row - here is a new project that I just started on Saturday.  I was looking at a project that was going to be a little different and this was the project that I selected to work on.  Sure it means that I have another project added to my list of things to finish but I am thinking it would be great to see something finished up.

I don't think this project will take me to long to finish as it is basically just the alphabet with a few little things added to it.  I also think that being able to work on a couple of letters a day may help me get through this project quickly.  I am not really sure if I will do the two letters a day but at least if I can make some progress on it during this month would make me feel great.


Of course, work is my main project each day so I will see what time I have this week to work on getting some stitching done.  I have my list of things that I need and want to accomplish this week so that means that I am going to be busy and then will when to see when I have some time to craft.

The weather is finally starting to warm up and it makes me happy to see that the trees are finally starting to turn green and flowers are starting to bloom.  It is now time for me to get back to work as I have a lot of things that I need to try and get finished up this week.
