January SAL Progress ~

Ah, where did my post go? I was typing along and poof - it was gone!

I must say this year is whizzing along! If it keeps up at this rate I'll be pulling my Christmas decorations back out in a few weeks! Where did January go?

Here's my progress for January - please ignore the wrinkles!

The plan is to do the next pattern under the word Snowman. It looks like a biggie! This is going to be something when it's finished. I know right where it will live next winter!


My mojo returned! It had gotten lost in my mind because I was grinding on a branch of my family tree. I found them and got them in place. Now my mind is clear to stitch. The basement is finished except for some miscellaneous stuff that I am at a loss as to where to put it.

Get the family in to go through the things I am ready to get rid of and let them store it. Then the rest can go to charity or the trash. I thought about a yard sale and putting the proceeds towards my Toys for Tots fund. But, the hassle of a yard sale is not worth the $40 I may make at the sale.

It's Super Bowl Weekend....will you be watching? Do you watch the game, the commercials, or just like to get together with friends?

I'm off to get my day moving...hope you have a wonderful weekend!

That is coming along so nice Denise. Yeh for the mojo, now I have the lack of it, haha. Keep up the great stitching. PS, I sent you something in the mail today:)

Hi Denise! What a load off your back! So glad you got the genealogy stuff figured out for now.
I watch the half time show. I want to see the National Anthem also. Alicia Keys sings very well.

Lovely stitching

Great progress on your SAL! I can't wait to see the finished product. I only watch the Super Bowl if 'my' team (the Cowboys) or my hubby's team (the Saints) are in it. This year, since neither team is, we'll be at an indoor pool with our church youth group instead :)

Oh wow! Your 6 Fat Men is coming on a treat. I'm not making so much progress on mine as there are just too many different things to stitch :)

Lana said...

I love this piece!!! Sooo cute! Can't wait to see more progress!

Catherine said...

You are moving right along with your snowmen!! Glad your mojo is back ~ hope you have a stitch filled weekend!

Melinda said...

Your Snow Guys look great. I am watching the game, at home - I hope to use the time to stitch, it will keep my fingers out of the food.

SO agree with the "hassle of a yard sale".

Linda said...

Oh yippeee yeah!!!! Your mojo is back. Great finish on the snowman.


Lesleyanne said...

A great new block. Glad the mojo is back.

Teresa said...

Love your snowman piece. It will be so lovely when it is done. Glad you have your mojo back. I lost my for awhile this fall.
I will go to my brothers for a super bowl party. I go for the food and friends, care less about the game.
