2017 Week 3 - Autumn Leaves and a non-ornament ornament

Evening all
I'm relaxing tonight after spending a wonderful weekend with 15 other ladies at the Winter retreat

I decided to pull out Autumn Leaves for this week knowing that I had extra time to stitch at retreat

Start:



Progress:



As well as trying to blog more often (weekly is plan), I am attempting TUSAL this year and also an ornament a month. Well it definitely helps to look at the stitch count before you pull a pattern for an ornament.
The one I pulled for January is definitely a little big for an ornament. This changes my plans for my next 11 ornaments, but it's not a big deal... that's why we collect patterns right? :)
Here is where I am with Lizzie Kate's Merry Ho Ho

2017 Week 2 - Reflections of Canada

How is it already half way through January!?! Absolutely crazy!

This week I decided to give Reflections of Canada some love.

This is where I started



I was hoping to get more done, but a frog came to visit.



Here is my Instagram side by side view



Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Week 1 - Canada Sampler

Happy New Year everyone!!
January 1 was a new start with some stitchy friends
This year we are doing the Canada Sampler from Stitchrovia


I have worked on it all week and managed to get some good progress in.
It helped having no plans on Jan 1st and no university course this week.
I am contemplating a rotation again (Monday - Sunday), but I am really enjoying this! I might just give it a second round! My next University course starts today, so this week probably won't see as much progress, but some is better then none!

Hope you all have a fabulous week
Bonnie

2016 ORT report

First step this morning was cleaning out the small and big ort jars

Orts from the past few months



All my 2016 Orts



And then all layed out - many colours



Like I have in the past few years, I have made an ornament out of my Orts. I now have 5 of these pretties :)



One of the things I hope to do is TUSAL if DaffyCat will continue... fingers crossed!

Merry Christmas

While it is a day late, I wanted to wish all my readers (are there any left?) a very Merry Christmas

I'm hoping to start blogging again in 2017
Anyone know of a good mobile app for blogging (iPhone)?

Catch up

I knew I haven't blogged in a while, but since the beginning of May! Crazy

Work and my Uni course are keeping busy for sure.

Here is a picture summary of what I've been stitching

I started Begin Row from Bent creek around the 8th of May...



And I finished Begin Row around May 29th


I really enjoyed this one!

I finally got around to stitching one of the Just Nan critters



I found an almost finished ornament and finished it



I've also worked on my Seba Cubes, cirque des Coeur, and Santa's Village










I also have one new start. On July 1st I started Reflections of Canada (Ink Circles)
