IHSW January

I have a little bit of progress on Pumpkinville for the weekend.  This weekend was IHSW, but I didn't get to hermit that much, I would love to hermit full time but there is not much pay for that job, unfortunately...

Anyway here is my little bit of progress and I am not sure how I feel about the Petite Treasure Braid, I really love the sparkle, but I'm not sure I like how it lays on the fabric, but I will continue on and see if that thought improves...hopefully it will...

I hope everyone has a wonderful stitchy week

WIPocalypse 2019....

Well another year has come and gone, and I started out pretty good with last year's


...but I fell by the wayside...again!!!   So on to 2019 and a New Year with new hopes and dreams---of getting some done on these wips and probably starting a few new ones, one I know of already--Come on Jan 15.

Enough of that, I'm Bonnie and I've been cross stitching for a lot of years, I've taken breaks but I always find my way back. I am married(34 yrs) and I have 1 daughter and several fur babies and I work full time as a retail supervisor.  I would rather stitch but work is always calling.

I have several wips and then the 1 I'm excited for on Jan 15 and my goals are to stitch as much on these as possible!!!

I restarted Monopoly!!!

and the one I'm excited to start!!!

and thats it for now, but I'm sure this will grow, plus I do have a bunch started thats not on here, but we only have so much space right???? again soon!!! Bonnie

doing the things that you love!!!

                                HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Let it Snow and snow and snow some more!!!

I know its been awhile, but you know...LIFE happens---and so does SNOW and snow is why I've been up since 3:30 am and can't get back to sleep.  I think the thought of losing power has me a bit uneasy, but if it goes out it goes out..not too big of a deal I guess, but again that comfort thing we have become accustomed too!!!

So here is a pic I took at about 6am---almost 5 inches and it is still coming down with lots of sleet

But I have been stitching when I can grab a minute, so I did finish a round robin that was started by the country stitchers on youtube!!!  I have really enjoyed doing this, we started with 4 people in our group, but lost one along the way, so the 3 of us had to do 2 of the blocks ourselves, so I did the bottom 2 blocks on my piece. I so enjoyed getting to know Donna and Mari, they were great stitch mates and maybe we can stitch together again in the future!!! We were supposed to do a primitive theme-I just love mine!!!

So I'm gonna go for now,maybe I can get a bit of sleep and then since I am snowed in, maybe some stitching later, we shall see!!!  And maybe some more snow pics after daylight!!!

Talk again soon,Bonnie!!!

An update or two...

Been trying to get some stitching done since July has gotten here and is really moving pretty fast, August will be here before we know it...

I am stitching along in the 4th annual Tour de Stitches in the Cross Stitch, It's fun! facebook group and its really motivating me to get my stitching out and actually work on it!!!

And I am also stitching in the Christmas in July Sal on facebook as well, an event in Cross Stitch Finish Line!!! 

And-can you believe it-stitching along with the 100 days of HAED group on facebook as well, although not officially!!!

Dog Lessons for People

A Very Merry Christmas Town                                                                                                                   

and my first 100 stitches on Mini Faery Tales from HAED

hopefully I can stitch everyday this week, that's my small goal to start and I hope everyone has a great week!!!

June WIPocalypse Checkin 2018

Well this will be a quick check in because I sure haven't stitched much this month or in a few months, hopefully that is changing...went back to the ortho Dr. because I still can't close my hand or really grasp things like I should after breaking it, so he says physical therapy for 6 weeks, so we shall see...

But I have stitched a bit...

I pulled out Dog Lessons for People and did a little bit

and as previously posted Into the Jungle

so not a totally wasted month I guess and as far as this month's question about the perfect stitching retreat...I am pretty comfortable with my stitchy space on my couch at home, not sure I could stitch in public---too many distractions!!!
