Stitching Get-Together Progress!

Six members of the SoCalCrossStitchers Yahoo group met at the food court of the Fashion Island mall in Newport Beach yesterday to sit and stitch all day!  Another 7th stitcher who just happened to be there stitching came over and joined our group, too!

I only seem to stitch on Very Scary by Lizzie*Kate when I'm at a stitchy get-together. It's like a chore I have to do before I can really enjoy myself.  LOL.  I still don't like the Tin Roof linen fabric or the dull colors of the WDW floss.  Oh well, I'll get it done eventually!  Since my last update, I added another purple Quaker star, the little black star, and the border on the left side.  Those satin stitches weren't too fun, either!  I think they were slipping in the linen but it seems to look OK now.
Very Scary (Part 1) update #8
Then I stitched the outline of the letter G on Thankful Critters by Ursula Michael.  It will say Give Thanks.  I'm sure it will be done by NEXT Thanksgiving instead!
Thankful Critters update #9
I also added another bottle on "99" by Ink Circles and finished the top shelf! Only 8 more shelves and 88 bottles to go!
"99" update #7
Bottle #11 is Pipeline Porter, Kona Brewing Company, Kona, Hawaii.

Sounds like you had a fun stitching get together Debbie. You made great progress on all your projects. 99 is diffinently one of my January starts.
The satin border on scary looks great.

Sounds like you had a great time. Very nice progress on everything. Love the colors in Thankful Critters.

Katie said...

More beautiful stitching. I don't stitch LK so I don't blame you for not liking it haha. Thankful Critters is too cute. I have 99 to finish next year too. Gets boring after awhile haha.

Isabella Morais said...

The LK design is adorable! Seems you have lots of project to stitch hun? I wish I could do the same! I have one huge project that I want to do but it is so huge for me that I keep putting aside...I have to take a deep breath and take the courage.

I really like Thankful Critters...it is so so cute! I love the colors!

Anyways...great progress with all your projects!

Carol said...

Making Great Progress on your WIP's...I am so glad that you had a chance to be with your friends and stitch. Good for you.

Christiane Garcia said...

Debbie, your projects are all beautiful! I really love your stitching!

I think your LK is looking good. Of course the wrong fabric can totally set you off of a project.

Brigitte said...

Not bad, your progress on your WIPs. I just love Very Scary with all the colours of the threads and the fabric - but then I have to say that I haven't stitched it yet, lol.

Emma/Itzy said...
