Goal 1 Complete

Well I have accomplished my first goal. I finished the Spooky Row by Bent Creek. I stitched it with DMC thread. I have been meaning to stitch this for a while but have put it off. I had to restitch the vulture because it was way off from the pattern. (He would have been without feet if I left it). Well, I am very happy with the results. Now on to my other goals.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hey. I know, I know. I've been slacking. I have no excuse. I have not been in the mood to stitch. So I've started crocheting. I crocheted Bouquet of Shells from Absolutely Gorgeous Sentimental Shells, designed by Terry Kimbrough published by Leisure Arts (pictured below). I made it for my cousin Liz for her birthday (back in February). I used Red Heart's Country Rose. Liz loved it. So I decided to work on afghans for awhile. I have 2 brothers, 2 sisters, 2 brother-in-law, 1 sister-in-law, my parents and 6 nephews. I have crocheted or knitted an afghan for my sister, my mother, my sister-in-law, one of my brothers and the 4 youngest nephews. So I decided to crochet for the rest of the family, my father, 1 brother, 2 brother-in-laws and the two oldest nephews. I will post pictures as I finish them.

On a different note, I bought Red Heart's Plum Heather worsted weight yarn a few years ago. Well last year I decided to crochet an afghan with it but ran out before I finished. My mom found a partial skein of it in her stock which I used but I still need to find a 6-oz skein of it. I have searched everywhere but haven't found it yet. But, I keep looking. The pattern that I used was Emerald Lace from One-Color Wonder Afghans published by Annie's Attic.

As far as stitching goes, I have been stitching on the same projects forever. So I have set up goals and recruited help. My Mirabilia Christmas Fairy I have asked my sister to finish. The count is too small and I can't see. My goals are:
1. Finish "Spooky Row" by Halloween (almost there)
2. Finish "Turkey Dressing" by Thanksgiving.
3. Finish the three other projects in my basket by January 1st.

I hope to achieve these goals.. I hope to post more often also. Well got to go teach my night class.

Thanks for stopping by
