I’ve been busy with several projects not stitch related, but I did manage to get some stitching done this week. Here is where I am now,
This one got the least amount of attention this week I’m afraid, Here is where she was last week:
I only added one block of 100 stitches bring my overall total for the right side up to 4,700.
It doesn’t really look like I did anything, but 100 stitches really isn’t much considering. I’ll be adding more this coming week I promise.
This is my easy stitch which I call my small since it goes quite fast. Here is where I was last week:
The pattern is split into two large parts and two small parts. Above, the first of the two big parts are done. I completed one of the two small parts except for the beading, and I’ve begun the second small part:
My snowman needle minder was made by Morti, and I won it in one of her giveaways. 🙂
This is a pattern created and charted by Morti herself, and I’m so loving it! Here is where I was last week:
I’m happy to say I finished the triangle though it didn’t quite meet up properly, I’m still learning how to count on evenweave. I added 223 stitches for a grand total of 1,085.
The white bit in the inside is me starting on the bobbin.
SAL by Peppermint Purple
This is my first proper black work SAL, and I’m really enjoying working on it. Here is where I was last week.
Here is where I am at week 13. It’s up to about 9,239 stitches.
I’m ready for more fillers!
Now for what you’ve all been waiting for! My first
FFO of 2023!!
This was done in October 2021 and was a SAL hosted by Stitchonomy. The blocks came out daily, and you worked them as you could. I managed to complete the whole thing by Halloween – I think.
The only thing I remember about this was it’s done on Aida using DMC colors. I didn’t keep track of anything else back then. I framed this because Emi saw it tucked in a bag with some of my other completed work, and she asked what I planned to do with it.
I like horror movies/books, but this had turned out too cutesy for me to want to decorate with it, and that’s what I told her. She asked if she could give it to a friend who loves horror movies/books too. I stitched the piece onto some cardboard and framed it without cutting any of the surrounding fabric.
I did that just in case her friend wanted to do something different with it. Emi reported the friend liked it so much she sent pictures to several people including her mother and just gushed over it. It took her a minute or two before she realized the frame was a book lol. She also didn’t know who Slenderman was….
Anyhow, that’s my first finish of the year, and I’m working on some more. 🙂 Any suggestions for how I should finish Witch?
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

Ooh the Halloween SAL looks awesome framed! You’ve done such a good job with it. I was mildly shocked when you mentioned this was in 2021; it feels like last year, haha.
Good progress all around! Looks like you too are experiencing a spike in stitching productivity lately. 🙂

I was actually shocked myself when I saw the date because I could have sworn you and I did this last year too. 🙂
I wasn’t planning on finishing it until Emmy saw it and gave me a reason. I’m tickled pink her friend likes it so much. She’s still talking about it. She and I both enjoy horror movies/books, and we both prefer the original Pennywise lol.
I haven’t done as much stitching this week, but I’m trying. Just so much going on 🙂

It’s a beautiful piece of stitching, and I’m not surprised at all that it’s admired so much. 🙂
Lots of stitchy progress and they all look great! How sweet of you to frame your stitch and pass it on. It looks like it was a fun stitch. I’m not a cutesy stitcher either, but every now and then they creep up on me and I just have to do them.
