I'm Still Alive

I have been neglectful in posting this week. I have been busy stitching however! I started the Glory To God ornament, and was making pretty good progress. I did not like the way my stitches were looking on all the white in the angel, but decided ok, I'll deal with it. When I got almost to the bottom and found a mistake, I didn't even try to find where it was...just took almost the entire angel out.

Meanwhile, I had gotten my order of Secret Shop charts from San-Man Originals, and there are several little Christmas ornaments that have buttons or charms with them. I figured that I could finish one in one night of TV, so I started one. Well, it took two nights, but it is done and looks cute. I thought I could finish another one last night, and got about half of it done, when I did something I have never done before. I looked and realized that there was not enough room at the right side for the rest of it to fit. I've been stitching for 25 years and never had that happen! So I started it over and I like the fabric I'm using this time a LOT better.

I have never made so many mistakes and had to take so much out in all my years of stitching as I hav in the past 6 months or so! Must be stress...heaven knows I have had enough of it!

I'm watching movies all day on Hallmark Channel and one on Lifetime so hopefully I'll have another finish by tonight and will get to post some pictures!

You went stash shopping did you ;o) Can't wait to see what you've done. I can't believe you took out her whole dress... LOL!

I can't believe you took out all the stitching on the angel's dress. You must have more patience than me. Love to see pictures of your projects when you are ready to display.

Hugs to help relieve some stress!
