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.

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.

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.
