Bad Blogger

I've been a bad blogger these days. Ever since I came back from vacation, honestly. I'm sorry about that, I really am! I promise it's not intentional, and I'm going to try to do better!

Since my last update, I've worked on several pieces. First, I worked on Victorian Lady by Joan Elliott.

I was very tired the day I worked on this piece so didn't get a lot done, but progress is progress! Here is where I stopped this time around:

This picture is a bit dark, but I'm doing this on 28 Jazlyn in Strawberry Swirls from Under The Sea Fabrics.

The second piece I've worked on was my Wedding Sampler designed by Carolyn Manning.

I love this piece because it's one of a kind. It's going to come up again next week as part of my August ABC SAL for Stitch Maynia. Here is where I stopped this time around:

I'm almost done with the greens on the second page and then I'll be able to work on filling in the roses. This is being done on 14 Count Aida in Crystal Fresco from Picture This Plus.

The last piece I have to report is my second August ABC SAL piece, which was my Doctor Who Clock by Cloudsfactory.

I was able to put in nine hours of time in it for the SAL and was very pleased with my stopping point.

This is being done on a 32 Opal Lugana jewel from Under The Sea Fabrics using silks from Mo's Sale for everything except the white (B5200) and the skin tone, which is Mo's Flesh cotton floss. There really isn't a ton left to do beyond finishing Doctors Two through Twelve!

That's about it this time around! I am going to try to get better about blogging daily again. Never meant to get out of the routine in the first place!

Until next time!


  1. Fantastic progress on these beautiful and fun projects. I especially like the Dr Who clock face!

  2. You could always just blog in weekly increments :). Your stitching is looking great!

  3. It means you have stuff to show though. I'm some times worried that my blog is along the lines of 'here's some grey, here's some more grey' (see if you can guess what colour I'm stitch a lot of at the moment) :-)
    Lovely progress on everything

  4. I could never survive daily blogging, too much to keep up after! I admire your resolve but if you switch to weekly I wouldn't mind either. :)

    Lovvvvve the timey wimey clock and fabric.

  5. Love all your stitching, you have made great progress. My blog has been completely abandoned of late so don't worry, daily posting is a lot to try and keep up with.

  6. Great progress on your beautiful WIPs:)

  7. Great progress! Your WIPs look beautiful :D

  8. It seems a case of bad blogger is going around I've got it as well. Great variety in your WIPS the colours in real life in your wedding sampler are so beautiful!
