Stitchy weekend update

It was a hermitting weekend and let me tell you, despite beautiful, sunny weather I was hermitting, stitching and seeking vengeance right by the side of the Count of Monte Cristo. Saturday I've got lost in time and stitches. Look, how much I've accomplish:


On Saturday I was going to stitch some more (since I decided to do only one project until it is done) but I realized that July it is almost over and I'm missing my challenge where I've committed to stitch three Christmas ornaments. So far I've done only one and I was 2 behind... Well, I found some red aida (I do not stitch on aida any more so that was asking for a trouble) and decided to use one of the charts that I received on my birthday (there will be a whole birthday wrap up post later, after I finish celebrating). I stitched about 4.5 hours on Sunday and here is the result:



That will be one big ornament... I have no idea what I was thinking...

So long my friends,
Evalina

  1. LOL - I stitched that and your right, it will be an awfully big ornament! Send it someone with one heck of a tree!

  2. Maybe that can go to D.C. for the National Christmas tree. lol I like the way you are thinking ahead. I was just thinking about doing a little Christmas shopping this coming weekend.

    One thing I learned about the Philippines (I am in Toronto for 4 more weeks) is that Christmas runs from starts in 'ber (September) and ends in late January or Feb. They love that holiday!


    By the way, if you're not doing anything, I am hosting a "Dog Days of Summer" 3-day blog fest if you're interested. It runs from Aug 10-12.

    Cheers!

  6. The reindeer is wonderful. Perhaps it can be a little hanging instead of a big ornament.

  9. Lots of great stitching. Love both those projects. The colours in the halloween one sure do pop on that background and I love the red on white piece. Looking forward to seeing what you decide on the finishing of this one.

  15. When is your birthday? Mine is today, but I'm not sharing my age! If you really want to know, you can check my blog. LOL

    Love both of these. I was going to do an ornament a month and that hasn't worked out so well. I've stitched three and finished one. And it's July. Oh well. That's the problem with having so many projects and never enough stitching time!

  16. Your doing great on HH. I haven't touched mine in weeks. Love the ornament on red. Just found out that my carotid artery on the left side of my neck is 90% blocked and I have to have surgery. So haven't done much of anything except some jigsaw puzzles. Keep up the stitchin.

  19. Great job on Halloween House! I love the fabric. You can hang your ornie from a doorknob instead of the tree!

  20. I love the look of that Halloween piece. The fabric makes it.

  21. I love the reindeer, but it does look big for an ornament :)
    Great job on the Halloween WIP

  22. Love the greens in the Halloween piece. You could always make a small flat wall hanging for the reindeer instead of hanging it on the tree!
