iStitch Advent SAL Day 10.....

Yeah!  I'm still on track.  I only had a few stitches left to complete for today but didn't get them done earlier before going to a movie with the family.   So now I've finished it and ready to post about it.

I will hopefully get my SAL finished earlier tomorrow after church service and DS tennis match.

Happy Stitching!

iStitch Advent SAL Days 7-9

Good evening everyone! you may have noticed I have been absent from posting my iStitch Advent SAL pics.  I went to go get DD from college after her finals and have now returned.  I only had my smart phone but had difficulty posting the pics to my blog and Facebook from the phone.  Plus I get a better picture with my actual camera.

So here are the past 3 days worth of the Advent SAL.

That's all I have for now to share until I get tomorrow's SAL.  I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am.

Thank you Carol for doing this again for us!!

Happy Stitching!

iStitch Advent SAL Day 6....

Well I would have posted this earlier but I had to go run an errand with DS and DH.  So while we were out, we decided to have dinner too.  WOOHOO....I didn't have to cook!  LOL

Here is where I am at for today.  I hope to get more of the border stitched in tonight but I'm not guaranteeing anything.

Happy Stitching!

iStitch Advent SAL Day 5.....

WOOHOOO!!!  I am posting today's Advent SAL part before 9pm tonight!  LOL  I have been full of energy today getting the house ready for company coming, and trying to decorate for Christmas.  But I just LOVE decorating for Christmas!!!

Here is my part for the iStitch Advent SAL.  You can still join by clicking HERE.

Now I need to go sew up an ornament from my "stitched ornament box" to give as a quick present.  Just like last year, I needed a "last minute" gift to give and thankfully I had another one in my stitched box!  I will share the finish here soon!

Happy Stitching everyone!

iStitch Advent Day 4.......

I am going to post Carol's link for our Advent SAL here if you still want to sign up.  iStitch  It is not too late to still join in our SAL.

Today, I printed off the chart this morning before going to church as DS was taking the computer to a friends house.  I have had a very busy Sunday, but I did manage to do my SAL this afternoon after the laundry was finished and the cake baked for our church Christmas fellowship tonight.

I did use the Kreinik braid again for today's small snowflake, and instead of just stitching in a small "x" for Rudolph's nose, I did a small French knot.  I have never mastered doing the Colonial knots but my French knots come out just as nice.  I hope you can see it.

Off to stitch on another Christmas ornament.  I thought I was done but after looking at my list......I am not.

Happy Stitching,

iStitch Advent SAL Day 3

Yeah.....once again I am here blogging about my finish late tonight.  And to think I thought I would have gotten all day to cross stitch!  I should NEVER post or say anything like that because every time I do, I NEVER get to as something always comes up.  I forgot that I had a dinner to attend tonight with DH, but thankfully I was reminded by looking on the kitchen calendar to see what was scheduled for today.

So here is my Day 3 of the Advent SAL.  I know you can't tell it in the picture too well, but I did use Kreinik 3231 #4 Braid for today's snowflakes!  I love how it makes it look sparkly on the fabric.  Tomorrow I am going to go back and take out the red stitches on my holly and replace them with tiny red beads that I am praying are in my bead stash.  If not, then I guess they get added to the shopping cart to be ordered.  

You will also notice that I pulled out my winter ORT catcher as well!  I just love that snowman fabric!!!  ⛄

Now back to my stitching as I haven't gotten as much stitching in as I had hoped.

Happy Stitching everyone!!!

iStitch Advent SAL Day 2

Yep....once again I am stitching the Advent SAL at night.  But none the less....I managed to get it stitched and more of the border!  I have only 2 errands to go do tomorrow so I HOPEFULLY....can get a lot of stitching done!

Here is where I have done!

And it's still not too late to join in our SAL!  Yes Carol had given us the entire border (which I hope to get stitched in tomorrow) but for now I am stitching it as I go along.  You can sign up her on her blog at iStitch.  Just email her and she will send you a Paypal invoice to get signed up.  It's that easy!!!

Happy Stitching!
