Just gotta' post something!

I met someone over on a fb group and bought some used charts from her then we decided to just be friends. Great idea but when you invite someone over to your blog you should at least have a recent post, huh? So here it is.
I've been stitching every single day since the last time I posted...just not on the same thing. Then I discovered this place where oop charts I've always wanted were popping up all over the place and that consumed me a couple weeks.
Then I'd try to play catch up on sal's and I think someone must have signed me up for some of the sal's when I wasn't looking. Surely I'm not that crazy??
But this is for all the Long Dog Sampler fans. This just out in PDF format and everyone who sees it seems to feel like singing. I actually did break out in song. It's just a 'feel good' piece and there's already a sal being put together.
So sharing it with you and my new friend Melinda Cole over at Merry wind Farm. I look forward to getting to know her.

Anyway I'm sorting and stacking and seeing what I won't ever stitch and what I might stitch hoping to come up with some giveaways and sales myself.

mystery stitch-a-long

I have senior moments where I simply forget how and where to save and post everything. Anyway, here is a great SAL by By The Bay and I am determined to do this one!!! Go on over and check Donna's Blog and get the details. Fun stitch for summer :)

Just Nan sal finish!!!

Now this isn't just any finish. This is a wip-into-ufo-into-wip-into-ufo-into-wip-into-FINISH!!!!
I started this piece very soon after it's publication. I wasn't used to the checkered fabric and it gave me fits. The colors so subtle were interfering with fabric with color squares, etc.

A great big thanks to Zeb over at Keep Calm and Stitch for Just Nan Sal and Just Nan junkies fb group I became determined. I couldn't seem to start one without finishing this one. So, here it is complete with all my mistakes, a few tears, and some changes out of pure frustration.

A Friday and January finish for me!!!

Oh wow! Thanks to someone in one of my stitching groups I saw this piece stitched and had to have it for myself. Good thing that google search bar is there because I can find charts so easy; or maybe it's not so good sometimes :)
Anyway, here it is. I have other things to post too but it will be  over the weekend I post sal pics.
To get this post in is a miracle. It does make a difference when you got something to show, doesn't it?
