Stitch a longing...

Hi folks!

I know, I've been all over the place lately and craving some relaxing stitching time...sometimes I wonder where my time goes...

It's been a busy few weeks, not sure exactly why, but I haven't had much time to stitch.  The past few days my needle has been flying finally, and I have some progress to show you!

You saw pictures of my last post where I fell off the stash diet wagon, HARD!!  Well, those new purchases were just calling loudly, until I threw caution to the wind and started Royal Garden by DebBee's designs.  HOURS I spent on this silly thing....but oh were they worth it!!  I'm loving this!!  I have to wait now for a few more fibers to come, I bought some to "exchange" but decided I didn't like them after I got home, so ordered the ones I couldn't get from my LNS.  I hope they get here's what I've done so far.  I hope the 3D effect shows up!!

I caught up with my SAL from Au Point de Croix

And my Marquoir de Francoise SAL from

I had another attack of startitis when I saw the new SAL from By the Bay needleart.  I'm such a sucker for SAL's!!  Here's most of part one.

I've also made 24 crocheted crosses for a Baptism coming up in June.  I hope I'm really far ahead...LOL  One never knows though!!  I've decided to crochet a special one that will travel to Kenya with the team.  I want to go so badly, but can't at this a little piece of me will be going anyway.  What color should I use?  Any suggestions?

I really should be stitching on something that has been a WIP for a long time instead of starting something new...and cleaning my house...and getting a job...but giving in to my startitis is so much more fun!  

I leave you with a picture of poor Tom...who just shakes his head at my insanity.  *Hugs*

Wow....Your Stitching is just beautiful. I don't have time to do SAL's...I am too busy working on my own projects plus reading.

I just love your crochet crosses...those are just beautiful...I love the colors of them.

Have a Beautiful Day
