Technology Failed Me Once Again

  I have been trying to write this post all afternoon.  I started a Windows update this morning that took all afternoon to download.  Apparently, it was stuck in a loop or something and wasn't doing what it was supposed to be doing and I didn't know enough about it to recognize it at the time.  The story of my life!!  LOL!!   So now I am trying to make this post and I'm kind of cranky about it so I apologize in advance for any snarkiness!
   I have been stitching although it seems like even though I have avoided my "group obligations" I still don't have enough time to stitch. (I think I might need a maid!)  I am making progress on a few things and since it is WIP Wednesday I guess I will show you ALL the things I have been working on.
   First up is Serenity Harbor.  I enjoy working on this so much!!! But it is solid stitching now, which does not go very quickly, and I am still WAY behind on it no matter how much time I spend on it. It is my baseball piece so I work on it nearly every night but that still isn't enough to get it caught up!  Oh well, it is for me so I guess it doesn't really have to finish on time.  But I was hoping to at least stay close!!  (The color on this is a little off.  Took the pic on the kitchen island and I'm not sure what happened, those lights are usually so good.)

Part 6  ends at the bottom of the tree trunk
 
Then, comes the Little House Summer SAL piece.  I have this one almost finished and since we are having a double IH&SWeekend this month, I hope to be able to wrap this one up over the weekend.
This is where it is now...


This part is what I have added since my last post.  I just love this one and I think I will have to keep it for myself!



I have been trying to work on something else during my weekly stitch group meetings, just to keep things interesting.  Also, I am kind of a messy stitcher and trying to transport one of the above projects to someone else's house can sometimes be tricky!!  Threads get lost, etc.   So last week, the Rosewood Manor piece got a little work done on it.  Not a lot got accomplished but it is group stitching and you know how that can be!!




This weeks group stitch project was the long suffering Dorothy Walpole.  She is so neglected and I do have her on the list to finish this year.  Once again, didn't get a lot done and I really need to make some progress if she is to make her completion date!!



  Well, that's about all for now.  I need to get back to it if I am ever going to finish another piece.  Seems like the finishes have been few and far between this year and that is really starting to bug me!!  The list continues to grow though,  I have just signed up for another Facebook SAL for the Fall.  Maybe that explains it!

Take care and enjoy your stitching,  Laura

  6. Laura, your WIPS that you shared this week are looking good. Every little bit of stitching gets you closer to a finish! I am envious of your weekly stitch group; I would love to have one nearby.

  8. Laura, your WIPs look wonderful! I'm also working on Dorothy W. but having trouble with the bargello because of my 40 ct fabric with thick and thin threads. Any helpful hints on getting through this section? I love seeing your progress!

    1. Cindy, I know what you mean about the linen but that is just its nature and something we all must live with. If you look closely at my bargello section, it is the same way, even on the 40 ct. Just keep plugging along and it will be done in no time!! Laura

  15. Hi Laura, I want to say thank you for coming into my blog and literally making me smile. Whata nice post you made to me! I have watched your progress on your Serenity Harbor and you are such an inspiration to me. I am working on block 6 and seeing how should look when I get a little further on mine. Isn't this such a lovely stitch? I also love your Dorothy Walpole sampler and have that one in my stash too. Fox River is beautiful as is Old Glory. You have wonderful taste in projects and your stitching is really beautiful on all of your work!
