December's TUSAL

Sorry for the lousy photo. I had almost forgotten all about this. I did add a little to it for this month though it's hard to tell that in this pic. I have really struggled to get a decent amount of stitching done this year and I think my ort jar proves that. I'm hoping that Wipocalypse will help with that in the next year. It also wouldn't hurt if I got a little more organized. (Eeek!)

Merry Christmas!

I decided to go ahead with this post now since I am about to be very busy. So, Have a Merry Christmas everyone! Stay safe, have fun, and try to stay as stress free as possible. It seems like Christmas can bring the best and/or the worst out of people.

I finally got back to stitching for more than just an hour. I was so proud of myself for getting in a good 4 hour chunk done. However, I think I am getting carpal tunnel. I started describing my symptoms to my Mom who has experience with c.t. and she thinks that it may be the beginnings of it. I plan to get a glove/brace to stitch with and see if that helps.

Quilting Happy Dance

My Nephew is turning 1 year old next week but his party is this Saturday. I was able to finish his quilt just in time!

This is "Beetle Boy." I think I mentioned that was going to use red fabric for the binding but I decided on an orange instead. I just couldn't find the right red but I really like how the orange looks.

I have slowly working on Mill Hill's Hummingbird when I get a few moments to stitch. I was really wanting to get more done but I had to put it on my Wipocalypse list. I am determined that I will finish it next year. I'm stitching it for my mom. I seem to stitch alot of things for her but she is one of the few people that I know that appreciates stitched gifts. I hate to go to all that trouble for someone only to find out they don't really care about it.

My Froggy Christmas Tree

Well, here it is! My froggy Christmas Tree! I have a few cross stitched ones that I need to ornify. It still needs a few more ornaments though but I like to add at least one new ornament each year. Oh and pardon the background. This is not the only tree we are putting up so this one went in the computer room which also houses my guinea pig, iguana, and parakeet. So I guess the room should be called the zoo room instead. lol.

This photo is to show the purple lights so ignore the fact that it's super blurry. Ha ha! I had to use Halloween lights since I can never find purple lights that are truly purple at Christmas. They always turn out looking pink instead.
