Stitching Week In Review & PhotoHunts

Last weekend wasn't very productive stitching wise and it was a continuing trend through the week.  I did manage to get in a little bit of time on three different projects.  I don't know why, but I just couldn't settle down to work at all.  Its a Canadian long weekend, so I'm going to settle in for hopefully a serious case of Stitcher's Butt shortly, hopefully I'll be more focused in my stitching than I have been in over a week.

I realized this week that I haven't even looked at the Accolade in like forever, so its gotten 2 10x10 sessions this week!

Yup, I'm still backstitching, there's a whole lotta' BS going on!

I haven't really touched my quilt squares in awhile so I've puttered a wee bit with it this week

I'm falling behind on my PhotoHunts again, with this post, I'll get you all up to date on those!

May 14th the theme was "Missing/Missed"
L to R my friends Bonnie, Clare and I.  Bonnie started the trend by getting a really cool monogrammed stitching bag, and well, we all thought they were great.  So all we're missing here is the letter A!

Today's theme is "Cluttered"
This photo is from my day trip into Mexico this past March.  As soon as you cross the border there's a huge outdoor market full of stalls and little shops all cluttered with all kinds of colourful "junk".  I must admit I did bring home a little "junk"

Love your photo hunt photo. The colors are amazing. (I particularly like the skull up top. I always love those skulls for some reason.)

Gabi said...

Lovely stitching. And wow, that is indeed a lot of backstitching. It's worth it though. It looks fantastic.

A lot of stitching going on - I wish I was as productive these days! Zeus looks gorgeous in the post below - she has the most beautiful facial markings.

It's ok to take a small break from stitching. When you get back to a project, it will seem like a brand new one. Love the bags, they're very cute. Love the Photo Hunt as well. I love flea markets and cluttered places looking for hidden treasures.

Ginny said...

You stitchings are looking fantastic! Sometimes it's slow going, but you will make up for it when you get the time and the itch to stitch. Loved those matching bags with the monograms. So cute.

Karen said...

What you have gotten done looks great! I hope you get plenty of stitching in this weekend. Those monogram bags are really cute.

Mylene said...
