Windy Rainy May WIPocalypse

Greetings fellow WIP stitchers!  I'm afraid to say I haven't accomplished much this last month when it comes to stitching.  My health issues keep annoying me (read as... so fatigued I can't get out of bed for days).   Anyway I hunted around for something small from my WIP pile to work on and pulled out my "Bikers Vest Patch".  It's been a choke! 1year 5months long time since it's seen the light of day.  I managed some more green and got as far as the gray in the tapestry needle this time around.  Speaking of "around" I really must get a rotational schedule printed out and stick to it.



And now for our favorite part of the show --- this month's topic question.

May 21 – Topic:  What were you stitching this time last year and have you finished it? (via Jo)
The short answer is: I haven't a clue and probably not.
So I went to my trusty blog archive list and checked the date one year ago.  And the answer is...... Mother Skunk and Babies, and no it's still a WIP.

I will be scheduling this to auto post at 6am Saturday as I will be gutting this computer for its 3 year cleaning Thursday night.  If everything goes as planned I should be up and running by Saturday evening.

That's it for this blog blurb. 

Slow as a snail stitcher....

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

If you need a book to help you fall asleep this book will do it. That's about all it has going for it.

Rainy May TUSAL

What you see in the beaker is from several weeks ago.  I haven't stitched anymore on Pegasus and Butterflies since my Wipocalypse post last month.  Let's just say my chronic fatigue and other health issues have gotten worse. 

On a brighter note HAED started their 20% off Mother's Day Sale today.  I put in my order for max color floss kit for "A Stitch in Time" by Aimee Stewart
 along with a mouse pad of the same image and a package of John James petite size 28 needles.  I was rather disappointed in the percentage off; usually it's at least 30%.  I think what really bummed me out was that any kind of savings was eaten up in the kitting fee they charged ($18.00us).  From now on I'm going to be using Michaels store coupons for floss. As for my order, I have no idea when my stuff will get here, I'm still waiting on the "The Addicts Box - Evenweave" package I bought in the middle of last month.

Thanks for stopping by.....

April WIPocalypse

Greetings all, I took a look at the WIP list on my website and picked this project to work on. "Pegasus and Butterflies" a Crewel / Embroidery project that I haven't touched since Jan. 27, 2007.  I find I really don't care to work with wool so the poor thing gets neglected a lot.




Now for this month's topic question.

April  22 – Topic: What do you listen to while stitching? (via Jo)
Usually I listen to the radio either a pop/country or 70's/80's music station.  I tried listening to audio books while stitching, but I'd get so wrapped up in the story that I'd catch myself - hands motionless not stitching.  So I stick to the radio if I want to get some serious progress done.  I can binge watch Dark Shadows on DVD.  That old soap opera progressed so slowly in its story arc that I can easily listen and not look; one disk has roughly nine 30 minute episodes.  I'm at episode 74 of 2,225.

Well that's it for this blog post.  Thanks for stopping by.......

OOPs I Did It Again.. Drat You HAED!!!!

I had every intention of saving my money to buy the floss kit for HAED's "A Stitch in Time" by Aimee Stewart.  Well that's been put on hold thanks to Michele's 50% off charts - National Tax Day Sale! Which runs until midnight Friday the 22nd.

Since I love Linda Ravenscroft's charts, I'm going to start collecting her Tarot Card Series starting with the first 6 of 14 charts. Justice, Strength, Death, Temperance, The Emperor, & The Empress.

I'll see everyone again this Friday for WIPocalypse. Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!!
