Mid - October Update

It's raining here and I have chocolate chip muffins cooking in the oven, so it seemed like a good time to update my blog.  I think I've decided that cross stitch is one of my comfort foods. :)  No, I don't eat it, but if I'm feeling a little low I love to look through my stash, window shop online, or make grand plans about next year's stitching.  I might actually even stitch a little! :)

Here's my update...


Page Two of HAED Nativity is finished! WooHoo!!!



The toe of the stocking is finished and I've worked on the band.  Little by little!!


Just a quick letter here and there when I need a stitch I don't have to think about too hard. : )

I've been having a needtobuysomething urge lately.  First I saw this...


... which is SO me.  I haven't bought it yet, because I am not sure I should have 2 HAED's going on at once, but I love it and would love to stitch it!

Then I saw this...


...which looks so fun, since I love Christmas stitching.  I didn't buy that either.

Then I saw this Petite Dimensions Gold kit on eBay.


Another sweet Christmas stitch.  I did buy this one.... : )

My Stitch from Stash account is over $100.00, I think, so I might cave in and place a small order just to get it out of my system.  But as soon as I say that, I am paralyzed, because I can't choose what to get.  LOL!!!  Should I start another HAED?  Should I just get fabric and floss and kit up a bunch of charts in my stash?  Should I buy the Christmas kit up there?  Or the two charts from my last post?  Or should I get one of those Vera Bradley Kiss and Makeup bags to stash with all the stitching goodies I always wish I had with me?  Or should I call Shepherd's Bush and see if they would kit up a fob for me with aida, since I'm allergic to linen???

Decisions, decisions!  I'm going to go ponder....

: )

Have a splendiforous day!

The HAED is looking so good. Have fun pondering. I would buy fabric and floss and kit up a bunch of charts in my stash. ;)

Wonderful progress on all your projects Tricia. I think you should buy those charts. I just bought 39 from Etsy. You can do it.

Such great WIPs, Tricia, and you made some nice progress on them. And wow, these charts that you did not buy are so beautiful. I think I'd go and buy one of them, lol. But I know that doesn't help you. I'm curious to se what you come up with.

Fantastic stitching Tricia. Whatever you decide enjoy it. I'm finding it very difficult now but still want to do it next year but a little differently.

Wonderful progress on all--I especiall love that LHN WIP! Need to buy that chart in my next order :)

You're allergic to linen??? Oh, my!! I'll bet that is so frustrating... I love the little nativity scene that you purchased--enjoy the stitching. (And yes, I totally agree--stitching is like comfort food to me, too! Better, really, as there are no calories :)
