I'm still here... And a Blog Award.

I know it seems as if I dropped off the planet, but I'm still here. I just haven't been very talkative or inclined to stitch since my last post.

Alberta, thank you for the Kreativ Blogger Award. This little award made my day. I'm sorry that it's taken so long for me to post it.

Now I get to pass the award on to 8 more bloggers.

Missy Ann

The rules are as follows:
1. Copy the Kreativ Blogger Award on your blog.
2. Create a link to the blogger who has nominated you.
3. Nominate 8 other bloggers.
4. Create a link to these bloggers on your blog.
5. Leave a comment on their blog advising them that you have sent them an award.

Thankfully I'm getting back my urge to stitch, and since I'm without a job again, I'll have the time as well.

Feeling crappy, but stitching anyway

My sore throat started Saturday night. I missed church and had Monday off. The sore throat is still here, along with a cough and sinus congestion.

Now, after all that information you didn't want to know, here's the stitching. LOL

Wednesdays this month I'm stitching on Mirabilia's Winter Queen.
This is how far I got last Wednesday.

And this is how far I got this Wednesday.

I'm almost half done Shannon's pumpkin. I hope she likes it. The flossies came at the beginning of the week. When I'm done the pumpkin I'll stitch the March biscornu, then Melinda's halloween block.
This weekend I'll have my partner info for Spring Round on Fair & Square so next week will be deciding what to stitch.

The Sisterhood is ready to travel

Carol has finished stitching and is ready to send The Sisterhood to her next destination.

She's done a wonderful job stitching, and has added a creative story too.

Mirabilia March

It's Mirabilia March over on The Wagon. My goal is to stitch on Winter Queen ever week. The best day for me to do that is Wednesdays. I have that day off and don't have any commitments for that day other than Kids 4 Christ which is after supper.

This is what WQ looked like when I pulled her out of the drawer. The colour isn't right, the colours I stitched there are white and 341.

"Winter Queen" by Mirabilia

I only got started after lunch and a little bit more after K4C. But this is the progress I've made so far.

Progress on March 11th, 2009

I'm hoping that I can get more stitching accomplished each week over the previous week. Meaning I hope I get up earlier, get my morning "routine" done earlier, so I can sit down and stitch earlier. :P

Today I'm going to start my March Biscornu. I'll work on that until the weekend then switch back to Dixie. Hopefully my flossies come in soon, then I'll get Shannon's pumpkin RR stitched. Then I can stitch on Melinda's Halloween RR when it arrives. Melinda's will be the last installment in the Open Theme RR and I'll have my Cats back. Yay! hee

Looks like I've created a rotation without even realizing it. Lets see if I can stick to it. ;)

Progress on Dixie

I was able to get some stitching done this weekend.
Saturday I stitched on Dixie and finished her belly. Now it's just the rest of her neck, the big wing and her head.

Dixie as of March 8th, 2009

Then I moved on to Melons by Pam Kellogg. I'm almost done, just have to connect the border, stitch the words and do the backstitching.
I'm hoping to finish it tonight.

Tomorrow I'll stitch on Mirabilia's Winter Queen. Hopefully I'll get enough stitched for a piccie.
