2018 Week 3 - Stitchy bug found?

Jan 15-21, 2018

I had a very busy week leading up to retreat weekend.
I still hadn't found that darn stitching bug, so I pretty much took every WIP I had going, including a couple new starts just in case.
It was also IHSW, so I wanted to get some stitching DONE!

The first thing I worked on was Coffee Quaker
I managed to get the top right motif done.

Next up was a new start.
This year I would like to stitch at least one ornament a month.
In December, I got all the thread for the newest Tiny Tidings (XXII) from Lizzie Kate.
So I started with the Merry Christmas one.
Not 100% happy with my fabric choice, so I might end up doing over again.  I will definitely change for the rest.  Mushroom would have been a better choice over ivory.
After that I picked up February's Year in Chalk, but the lighting wasn't the greatest with the slate fabric, so after a few stitches it went back into the stitching bag
Then I pulled out Cirque des Coeurs and got a bit done.

Great work. I love the two L*K with the tiny houses and snowmen buttons.

Nice work on CdC too.

I love that Coffee Quaker! So funny. The little LK designs are very cute and I think yours is really pretty on the ivory. I'm surprised you stitched on so many things at retreat, well done!

It took a bit but I found my mojo again, yours will return! Why not brew a bit of tea and drop that L*K finish in it?
