2017 Week 9 - Autumn Sky... say what?

This week it was time for Miss Autumn (aka Touching the Autumn Sky) to get some love
I don't believe I have shared this one with you yet. Dani, Christin, Bekka, and I started this on the first day of Autumn. Well I actually didn't... I had a fabric delay, but got started soon after.

Here is miss Autumn to date. I'm stitching her on Steph's Blue Sky (I think that's the name!)

This week I will be giving some love to the only wip I haven't touched this year... any guesses?

2017 Week 8 - Tapestry and rememberance

Monday Feb 20th was a holiday on Ontario - Family Day. My friend Rebecca (Bekka Stitches) and I have been talking about starting Ink Circles Tapestry since late last year. Well we finally managed to settle on a date and I thought a holiday Monday was perfect!

I am stitching this with the recommended over-dyes and on Steph's Carmel Macchiato (32ct Linen)

This is where I got to by Sunday (26th)

This week I also learned of a friends passing. Linda was an amazing women, and I will remember the stitching time we had together. Lots of laughs for sure, and anyone who knew her definitely will remember that amazing laugh. She was the one who told me about Ann at Knowledge and Needles, and from that I have met some amazing ladies who I consider very close friends. For that, I will always be thankful.

2017 Week 7 - The ornament that wasn't

I worked on the Blair's blanket for a good part of the week.

But I also attempted to work on my ornament for February (I'm behind on January too... you haven't missed it).
I had an epic counting fail, but instead of giving up, I decided to try a different pattern.

This time I picked The Prairie Schoolers Cranberry Christmas.
This is my small progress

So still not much on the stitching front, but I hope to have more this week!

2017 Week 6 - The stitching that was

It took until Thursday, but I did manage to actually stitch last week!

Here is where you last saw Cirque Des Coeurs from Ink Circles

I was hoping I would get the bottom outline done... and I DID!
Some stitching is better then none, and I'm happy this finally got some love.
Not sure what is on the agenda this week, but will hopefully fit a few minutes of stitching in!

2017 Week 5 - The stitching that wasn't

Well my friends, I don't have much of an up update today... not much at all!

This past week was absolutely insane... with work, my Uni course, and overall feeling exhausted. The first time I even thought about stitching was Saturday, and then I didn't even pull a WIP out.

On Sunday, late afternoon, I finally pulled out a WIP and managed to get a few stitches in.

So... I have decided to keep out the WIP, Cirque des Coeurs, for an extra week just to make sure it actually felt loved.

I haven't taken a pic of my measly few stitches, but here is where it was the last time I posted.

Fingers crossed I can get the bottom outline done!

Hope everyone is well, and catch you all next week!

2027 Week 4 - Pizzazz

This past week I gave Pizzazz from Ink Circles some love.

Here is where I started:

This one seemed to be frog infested. After I made a new working copy, they seemed to go away. I still managed to make some decent progress:

Not sure what will be on the rotation this week. For now I'm relaxing and working on a crocheted blanket for Blair.

TUSAL - Jan 2017

I have decided to participate in TUSAL this year. I was basically participating last year, just not blogging.

I'm also planning to post my TUSAL each month on Instagram too.

This is my new travel ort container. This was included in my retreat goody bag from last weekend. I LOVE the colour - a perfect orange.

This is what was in my ort container that I have beside my stitching chair.

The same Orts - just outside of the glass

All my 2017 Orts together
