Summer Stitching Stash Blast #10 {link-up}

It is week ten of the Summer Stitching Stash Blast. 

The two projects that I am currently working are gifts. Some of the materials are from my stash, but I did buy new items for them, so I guess that makes them a bit of a cheat. Well, people have birthdays and others move into new homes and gifts must be given!



I am still knitting away at the blanket and have high hopes for completing it by my personal deadline of August 1st. I have also picked back up the Dr. Who cross stitch that I am stitching for my sister-in-law, Abby. It stitches up quickly because it is an easy pattern that is worked on 14-count Aida. I have no doubt that I could finish it in a couple of days if I didn't have other responsibilities. But my family needs to be fed, my house needs to be cleaned, and the beach needs to be visited. 



And here is a picture of the second sugar skull sackcloth napkin. The stitching is complete, but it still needs to be washed and pressed. 

So there you have it! What are you working on or have completed? Link-up below!


The rules:

- Write a blog post showcasing your current and recently completed needlework and sewing projects. If you would like to combine your stitching post with another topic, such as a daybook, weekend happenings, book review or what your wore to church, that is cool with me.

- Any post that is not about needlework, sewing, or stitching in some form will be removed from the link-up, as will any post that is offensive. (I do not see that happening, but I need to say it.) See the first post for a the full description of needlework. 

- Please place a link to the most current Summer Stitching Stash Blast in your post so other stitchers can find the link-up.

- Show the other bloggers some love by visiting them and leaving a comment. We all know how hard it is sometimes to finish a project. A little encouragement may be just what she needs to complete her project.

Summer Stitching Stash Blast #9

It is week nine of the Summer Stitching Stash Blast.

I had high hopes for finishing all my projects this summer, but what I did not take into consideration was how busy I was going to be this summer. I am not able to devote time every day to my projects now that summer is happening with full force. Good thing there are seven more weeks left of my stash blast! I have a feeling that once we get back into our full school year routine I will be able to focus on a few of the projects that I have not even touched yet!




This week I continued to work on the second sugar skull hand towel for my cousin and the blanket I am knitting for a friend. I will be giving my cousin her hand towels on Tuesday, so I really need to buckle down and knock the rest of the stitching out later today. I still have about four weeks left before I need to give the blanket to my friend, but I would like to get it off of the needles soon. I have given myself the goal of having it finished by August 1st.

Yesterday I purchased the audio version of Own Your Life: Living With Deep Intention, Bold Faith, and Generous Love by Sally Clarkson. I am excited about this book and hope to spend quite a few hours listening to it while stitching this week. *Link is an Amazon Associate link.

Summer Stitching Stash Blast #8 {link-up}

It is week eight and the halfway point of the Summer Stitching Stash Blast. 

Things have been silent around the blog and for good reason. I am enjoying my summer! Our vacation to Maine was fantastic. Truly, we had a wonderful time and can not wait to vacation there again one day. I had intended to write up a little recap last week about my vacation, but I was busy all week with house cleaning, knitting, a doctor's appointment, a play date, a beach day, and a birthday party. I have been very busy lately and enjoying every minute of it. 




While I was in Maine, I did not work on my cross stitch as I had planned, but I did manage to knit several inches of my Ericka scarf. I didn't realize how much I missed knitting until I picked it up and started stitching. It was a last minute decision to bring it with me and one that I am so glad that I made. Once home, I started working on the housewarming blanket that I started several months ago for a friend. She is visiting her mother here n town for the next five weeks, so I hope to have it finished for her before she heads back to her new house in Ohio. 

I will continue to knit while also working on my embroidery and cross stitching projects. I hope to get many of these projects finished over the next eight weeks.
