Day Three...

Here I am again...Day three.

I had a weird day today, on and off the phone for large periods of time. So...I didn't get as much stitching done as I had hoped, but here are my efforts for today...

I finished "Joy to the World" from Little House Needleworks. This was NOT on my list, but Mouse so kindly reminded us that she would be wielding the wet noodle if we didn't work on a UFO so I hurried and finished this one right away! Hope this holds you off, Mouse!! LOL *drum roll, if you please*...my first finish of 2011.

Babs, I started my Heart of America from Little House Needleworks! Here's my progress so far. I hope you did far better than me!!

I woke up to find a sty in my eye today...and had trouble with blurriness all day. *sigh* I hope this passes quickly! I wanted to start my project tomorrow on 40 ct silk gauze. Wish me luck!! I took a lot of breaks to rest my eye, and it's a good thing I did! Had a lot of fun phone calls today! Tomorrow I'll be off to my buddy's Sonya's for a stitch day with pals.

Hang in there all you crazies, we'll get through this together! *Hugs*

Eek! 40 count over one??? I hope your eye feels better soon!

Your first finish is beautiful! I'm not going as fast as I would wish on my starts. I hope to have an entire day to stitch one of these days!!

DJ, thanks for re-posting your blog. I love it. Your stitching is beautiful. While I'm not participating in the crazy challenge, I do want to do my part to cheer you all on. You are making great progress. I'm with Tricia, though, Eek indeed. I could never do 40 ct over 1. :) Cathryn

You have been productive. Congratulations for your finish.

Go away sty! Now is not the time for obstacles! Oh DJ, I forgot I had listed Heart of America as a wip instead of a start because I did start it waaay back when it came out. I decided NOT to put any more stitches in it so you could get yours going. Will go post a pic on my blog right now...I go all over the place...not an organized stitcher :( great start for you btw.

I followed the link to your blog from the LHN/CC stitchers group. I love the finish of "Joy to the World". It is one of my favs. I also have "Heart of America" but haven't started it yet. Good progress on yours.

Love the stitched finish DJ and the LHN piece is going to be gorgeous! Hopefully your sty will heal up soon and you'll be able to enjoy your stitching again.
