November TUSAL

Oops! I almost forgot TUSAL! Here is my ort jar that I have added a few threads to but not near as many as I would have liked.

My Orts.

Close up. Hee hee!

And here's one reason I haven't gotten much stitching done. My cousin taught my nephew how to climb. Oh boy. Just what I needed. He likes to look at the fishies but I have to watch him super close so he won't fall off.

What I've Been Doing

Ok, well I had signed up to do the IHSW or International Hermitr & Stitch Weekend this past weekend. I didn't cross stitch but I did stitch together a quilt top for my nephew. Does that count? I don't know.

Anyway, this is the quilt I'm making. I bought the kit because these fabrics are just so cute! Here's the link to a free download of Beetle Boy.

So here's mine. I still have to stitch the beetle's legs. Then I have to layer, quilt, and bind it. I decided I wanted to do a red binding since I have to go buy fabric for the backing anyway. The kit has you use the same fabric as the outer border and I tend to like the binding to stand out a little.

Meager Progress

I know. It's hardly enough progress to make a fuss over but here it is anyway. I've been sick with a cold/sinus so I was lucky to get that much done. I have also started a new project so that's been taking my attention away too. My new project happens to be a quilt for my nephew's birthday. He will be 1 year old in December. I also need to finish my cousin's quilt that I started 2 years ago. I made a few mistakes and I set it aside out of sheer frustration. The frustration has been replaced by guilt because he keeps asking me when I'm going to finish it.

Anywho, here are my progress photos. Just remember, even a few stitches count as progress. ;)

Oops! I forgot to say that this is Crescent Moon Dragon by Joan Elliott. Lol!

Some Progress After All

Here is HaED's Fairy Frog Mother progress. I tried to stitch on this during a SAL but only managed about a hour or so. So I decided to keep working on her until I had enough progress for a decent photo. So here she is!
