2 WIP photos.....

I thought I'd share what I've been up to over the Memorial Day holiday and here this week.  I pulled out CCN Bless Our Home to work on over Memorial Day weekend but did not like the colors I had stitched in for it.  So I ripped out the little bit I had stitched in, pulled some brighter colors for this project and worked diligently over Memorial Day weekend.

As you know I love My Big Toe projects as well.  I was inspired to stitch up 10 Commandments and I'm sad to say that I've not been showing more progress reports on it.  My apologies.  A lot of times while I'm doing laundry, I will work on the inside border which can become boring if you are stitching on it solely.  So I've been trying to work a little motif here and there to get it done.  As you can see in this picture I took this morning, I'M ALMOST done with the inside motif border.  I'd resigned myself to making sure I stitch at least 2 of those motifs each day and I should be done in about 10 or 12 days with just the inside border motifs.

I'm getting there on this project.  I will try to be better at keeping you updated with the photos.

Now....off to pay the bills and balance the checkbook, but they do need to be done.  That way I can stitch without guilt in knowing that they need to be done!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Both your WIPs look good, Brenda! Looking forward to seeing more picture progress reports.

  2. I love doing borders, but I don't think I have done a big one like that in a while! Both projects are looking great!

  3. Love seeing the progress. Keep up the good work.

  4. Lovely progress on both, Brenda! I'm like you, I always do the non-fun stuff like cleaning and bill paying and then reward myself with stitching time (and stash!).

  5. Great progress on both your projects.
