Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finished!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - framed!
Happy 28th birthday to my son!  He came to visit for 4 days and was able to take his birthday gift home with him, so I don't have to mail it.  How funny that he remembered all the names of the Ninja Turtles from almost 20 years ago.  LOL!  Leonardo wears the blue mask, Michelangelo orange, Donatello purple, and Raphael red.  They each have different weapons.  Leonardo has katana swords, Michelangelo has nunchakus, Donatello has a bo staff, and Raphael has the sais.

Happy Birthday, Chris!

TMNT halfway done!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles update #2
Two Ninja Turtles done, and two more to go!  Cowabunga, dude!  This chart is from Wee Little Stitches.  This is a gift for my son.  He is here in California right now, visiting from out of state.  He hasn't seen it yet, and I plan to finish it before he goes home on Monday morning.  Wish me lots of stitching luck!

Once again, I get all my Q-Snap huggies from Christine's Q-Snap Huggies.  I have this one with kitties for my 8x8 and also my 11x14 Q-Snaps.

Wow!  A few hours later and here's another update!

TUSAL #4 and Halloween House progress!

It's time for the monthly TUSAL update!  My ORTs outgrew the star-shaped dish, so now I'll be using this vase instead.  Be sure to check in on Daffycat's blog.
Halloween House update #13
I only got one pumpkin done in front of the fence.  There will be many more!
Harley-Davidson logo update #8
I made full cross stitches on the bottom half (CYCLES), but the top half (MOTOR) is still half cross stitches. Can you tell the difference?  The words will really pop after I add more black background between the letters.

I have no reports to type for work right now, so I can get back to stitching on company time! Lucky me!

Mr. Mittens has a hat!

Mr. Mittens update #9
Mr. Mittens has a hat!  I will be stitching his big striped scarf next!
BBQ Queen update #10
BBQ Queen has legs on her barbecue!  Next week I'll be stitching on the pink flamingo.

Today is Friday, so I'll give some attention to Halloween House.  Happy Stitching, everyone!

Just a little bit of progress!

Spring & Fall - April update #1
This Prairie Schooler design from the Spring & Fall booklet is my Saturday SAL with Linda and Rosemary. We plan to stitch one for every month.  Linda suggested doing the bunnies in different colors and I thought that was a great idea!
Harley-Davidson logo update #7
I finished the two rows of black under the word Davidson.  Next I will finish the orange half stitches into full X's.  I have been spending a lot more time chatting with my boyfriend online instead of stitching this gift for him!  I missed the Christmas date, so I put it off for his birthday instead.
Halloween House update #12
My little bit of progress on Halloween House was just the last two fence posts on the right.  My goal for next Friday is to add more Jack o'Lanterns!

Happy Stitching, everyone!

WIPocalypse and SAL updates - lots of progress!

I saw a beautiful Full Moon the other night, which reminded me that it's time for the WIPocalypse update #4!  Check in on Measi's blog to share a link to your WIPocalypse update, too!  Are we getting closer to finishing all our cross stitch projects before the end of the world?

You can click on each photo to make it larger.  See my WIPocalypse page for current pics of all my projects.  Enjoy my updates!
Trick or Treat update #13
I added a spider, pumpkin, and started the purple hat on Trick or Treat.  I'm already imagining how it will look when framed with 2 or 3 different colored mats.
Harley-Davidson logo update #6
I added more black background behind the letters, but still have a lot more to go! I also need to finish all the orange X's, since they're only half-stitches right now.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles update #1
I started Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on day #10 of the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge.  I bought this chart from Wee Little Stitches.  One turtle down and three more to go!  It will be a gift for my son's 28th birthday.
BBQ Queen update #9
BBQ Queen has hot dogs on a BBQ now.  Maybe next week the flamingo and BBQ will have legs!
Halloween House update #11
More of the purple house and black fence were completed on Friday the 6th.  I didn't stitch anything on it last Friday the 30th.  You can see progress pics from everyone on the Halloween House SAL page on Linda's blog.

I bought all the cute Q-Snap covers from Christine's Q-Snap Huggies.  Be sure to tell her that I sent you!
