WIP UPdates!

OH its been so long since I blogged!  I accept the fact that my regular readers have given up on me!  Here it goes anyway:

So after I moved to Pennsylvania, I wasn’t feeling very inspired to stitch, so I didn’t blog since I didn’t have any stitching to talk about or show off…  I was busy with a new job, had met a new person in my life that I spent a lot of time with, and was reading a lot in my spare time.  It seemed far easier to fire up my kindle than try to pick up on a project that I hadn’t worked on for a long time.

Life now is much more settled down though and I’ve actually been stitching 2-3 months.

This is a new project I started entitled Colonial Roses by Sweetheart Tree.  This will someday be a biscornu.

Here is the closeup view of what I’ve stitched so far:

I’ve also added three new words to my Lizzie Kate Living with Charm Banner….

Believe, Care, Encourage:

Here is How the Whole Project looks so far:

And finally… the massive 8+ year WIP… Chatelaine Alpine Seasons!  Will I ever finish it??

The whole thing!!!

Now that the confetti in this section is mostly done, i’m working on the mountains which are relatively large bands of color and very little counting.

So who thinks I can finally finish this beast in 2014? Once I get the stitching done there are hundreds of beads and crystals to add, but getting the stitching itself done would be fantastic!
