Not a whole lot to share just a few pics really..First off my DH finished another page of his John Wayne
Then last year my kitty was given a bed from a friend that had to put his dog to sleep..she ignored it of course till the same friend got a new dog and we watched him for a day and he got in the bed so now of course the cat wants to use it too lol
Then she decided mom's lap is better than the bed so this is how we end up most nights then of course right after the pic was taken she bit me and ran,,she can be such a lap and bed kitty at times but when she has had enough she bites and runs more often than not she bites my feet which are bad to begin with from the diabetes.
Since my last blog post I started and finished the first part of The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery..A Very Merry Christmas Town
I will try and post a little more often but sometimes my health just isnt good enough for me to do anything but lay on the couch..I also got an exercise bike to try and get in better shape and that is when I really realized just how bad of shape I am in physically but I think if I slowly work at it I will get healthier in time..
I had to put away my Pink Lightning for now I was just getting tired of all the dark colors but I am sure she will be coming out again soon.
My health in the last few months has gotten some news not necessarily bad or good really..I've known I had diabetes for years now and the nerve pain that can go with it if not taken care of properly, what I didn't know but did suspect was that I have Fibromyalgia so been trying to learn how to deal with the pain that comes along with that.
I also started a new project that I will try and update on here monthly..the project I started is Save the Stitches..my very first and definitely not my last so will leave you with a pic of it and hope to be back soon..
I'm so excited to be done with another page on my Love Thy Thread piece..I have found so many little hidden pictures in it as I go along..and have decided to fill this in with bright colors and beads when all done with the black.
My other half is done with another page on his John Wayne..he is now working on the other side of his face then will start the bottom row..
I'm going to leave off with a picture of my almost 6 yr old furbaby Misty showing off my new bedspread and the rose she stole from me.
How do you overcome that feeling that you’re in a rut with a particular project?
When I have this issue I usually take a break from that project and work on something else..maybe why I have so many WIP's.
Since this is such a short post I will leave you with a pic of my current WIP that I started on Jan 1st of this year. HAED Mini Pink Lightning
This is my Stained Glass SAL that started last year..unfortunately the SAL has ended as Love Thy Thread is no longer around but I am still doing a page a month. This is the halfway point..being done on 14 ct..after I have all the black done I plan on going back and adding beads in the single stitches part..a really bright single stitch border and filling in all the blank spots with bright colors that match my living room.
Hmm well it seems to be that time of year again..the first post of the year and the first Wipocalypse post in a few years for me. I can't post any pictures of my projects just yet as I am waiting for a memory card for my new camera..will try to post a photo on my next update which should be around the 15th.
For the WIPocalypse we are supposed to introduce our projects and any goals we might have for the year..
My main projects for this year should be..Mini Pink Lightning from HAED, Maleficent from HAED, Mini Zodiac from HAED, Storytime Sampler from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and last but not least Stained Glass SAL from Love Thy Thread. all of the projects listed are new except for the LTT SAL.
I may pick up some other projects in between.
Goals for the year are to finish my LTT SAL, keep up to date on the Storytime Sampler SAL and get some great progress on the other HAED's.
