DETAILS : Anything FALL related and/or a Lavender and Lace pattern is the theme of this one.
You pick the design, the fabric, the threads- Pull up a comfy chair grab a cup of hot coffee or tea and join us on our journey. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's progress.
There's possibly a few from the community that will be stitching. This is a private community so please be aware that anything you post there will not be seen by the public. I feel the safety of my members are more important that having a public community. This blog however is public so you are more than welcome to follow along on our journey. We do have quite a few SALs still going on and I wanted to invite you to one more for the year.
I hope that you have a wonderful day. Happy Stitching and May you have smokin' needles. xxx

Unfortunately I have been unable to post as much as I want due to busy season at work. I am trying to stitch when I can and have made some progress on Deepest Love only to find some mistakes and have a major frogging session last night. I WAS up to the halfway point of the pattern when 2 of the outer ribbons were getting too close together. I found the mistakes a little too late and had to frog the entire outer ribbon and seaweed. I've restarted the ribbon and am counting at least 3 times as I stitch... She is just too beautiful to fudge up. I want her right or it will haunt me when I look at it.... So here's some progress. The mistakes and frogging I have done...

I hope this finds everyone doing well. It's time for a past due update. Things are still busy at work so I am trying to stitch while I can. So where I left off with Deepest Love , I have moved the scroll frame up and am continuing to work on the outer ribbon...Not much else done on this one yet. It's coming up in my rotation.

April is flying by fast, and my stitching has been slow. I finally finished my Iced Mocha Snowman Ornament by Joan Elliot.
I'm posting all of my pictures, and hoping my phone leaves them in order.
May your stitches stay even, and the frogs stay away.

I debated whether to continue posting these. Some will be posted more than once during the year as I stitch a new one.
I'm currently stitching my second set of Hot Cocoa Snowmen Ornaments. This is my starting of Iced Mocha.

I skipped this in February. I did stitch an ornament, but not this. Life has a way of laughing at the plans that we make. That's ok. Last night it hit me just how silly the pressure that I was putting on myself was. I give others with chronic health issues a huge break, but not myself? Absolutely silly. I'm actually doing pretty good! I need to applaud myself more often.
This month I had thought that I would spend more time stitching on this, but I made a promise to myself. I'm going to try to keep it. I don't know if I'll finish my Snowman Ornament for this month, but I can do my best.
I don't remember exactly which day I pulled this out, and I didn't stitch every day. I spent time with my husband, and getting used to my new compression stockings. My legs are definitely feeling better. The pain and soreness is starting to pass. Soon I may even tell how much fat has accumulated on my calves, and not just edema.
I digress with life again. LOL! This month I'm not going to include all of my progress pictures. I thought that I would just share my starting, and stopping points. I'm happy with how much I was able to do.
See you soon with this month's Snowman Ornament. I hope that you are are all well. Or at least well enough and happy.
