Lots Of Things to Share

I have finally gotten around to taking pictures of the two new framed pieces that I got back from Lazy Daisy a couple of weeks ago. Actually, we just got around to hanging them on the walls, too.

For anyone new to my blog, I will make this confession once again - I'm a chocoholic. There. It's out there in the open for all to read. And I want nothing to cure me. I need my sweet addiction. Someone sent me a gift certificate to 123 Stitch, and this was one of the pieces that I bought:

I'm actually thinking of making a chocolate wall in the dining room, much to MJ's chagrin. He just smiles at me, and says "Yes, dear" as he's walking away from me, shaking his head, wondering how he got himself into this mess.

This is by Sue Hillis. I loved it because it was a monochrome design and was a pretty quick stitch:

It's also on 28 count evenweave called Strawberry Sundae. I think the floss was Bordeaux.
This little fellow has been my project to take with me while Z has had gymnastics class. That's pretty much the only time I work in it, about an hour a week, so it's taking alot longer than it should, but last week I got most of in completed.
I have the backstitching left and then I will make him into a cupcake. The one I made is lonely and needs a friend. Lots of them, actually.

I stayed up late last night because I wanted to finished the sun. Here is what Mickey and Minnie have been gazing at all this time:


I've been working on this for a few weeks, so I plan on putting it away an working something else right now. Maybe my sampler. Maybe the new LHN that I kitted up. I'm not great with this rotational stitching. I don't have a plan, or a set number of hours that I will work on each piece. I just work one thing until I've had enough of it, then I move onto the next piece. Does anyone else rotate their projects? How do you do it and keep yourself organized?

Great work! Mickey and Minnie are really coming along!

I don't have a rotation. With the kiddos around, I can't. I just try to work a bit each week on something if I can. I try to have progress on their afghans each Tuesday-a FAIL this week-and other projects each Friday. I stitch whatever I feel like or can at any given time. For example, smaller projects in a Q Snap can be worked on with a child sleeping in my lap. Their afghans or BAPs like ATS can't, KWIM?

Forgot to add, I have a "travel piece" too-Miss Mary Mack. I work on it at the OB's office, although I won't be next time cause that's ultrasound day and the whole crew is going. But it keeps me busy on the other visits. The visit after the ultrasound is the GD test (I think, it may be the one after THAT), and I'll need something to do then for sure. Especially if I have to do the 3 hour one AGAIN. >:(

Um, little Panda there would look GREAT on top of a box! :-) Seriously!
Cute stuff, Pam! I'm not much of a rotational stitcher either ~ I work on what I want, when I want!
