This is going quickly

Image
So I'm a little over halfway done with page 6 on Insanity.


It was helpful that the first 13 rows were the same color. Although now I've run into a snag. I'm missing 367 from my master set so I'll have to steal from another project until I can get a new one.

Spring Blossom Afghan

Image
The only plant that will stay alive in my apartment. ;) The center was a bit annoying to do.


Also fed Clyde while parents were on vacation. First day he just wanted attention. But 2nd day he actually started eating as soon as I put food down. So I got this silly photo.


Back to Insanity now. Luckily most of the page seems to be sky which should go somewhat quick.

Page 3 is complete.

3 down, I forget how many left to go.


So onto a bit of crochet. I didn't feel like dealing with my two clothing wips/redos or something too simplistic. So I picked an afghan kit out of the closet (of doom). I did have to frog half of the first part because I added a stitch, but I'll remember not to do that for the next 3 petals.


I didn't buy more stash this week. (My credit card thanks me) but I did get the backordered ornaments. On the other hand my Mary Maxim order hasn't shipped yet. Maybe something ended up backordered?

Anyway, I really should reorganize my cross stitch. It's gotten a little all over the place and I started using my linen closet for storage just so it wouldn't be in a pile on the floor. May tackle the closet again.

Under 10 to go

Image
I officially have 9 rows left on the page. This will be done by next week.


Also saw Clyde, he was being cheeky lying on top of the file cabinet when I came in.


And while I may have managed to not buy anything during the HAED sale, I wasn't so lucky with ads from Herrschners...


and Mary Maxim. I finally got a coupon that worked on the afghan, but then I started poking around the site, saw the stackers, caved on the rest of my snowman family, and got all the doilies I had been eyeing for a few years.
I need to get a move on with the crafting. Or win the lottery and stay home to work on all of them...

Lend me an ear

Image
71/98 rows done. I initially was wondering what the red-ish colors on the far right were, then I realized it was her ear.


Also, I think I went a bit overboard with Christmas ornament kits. Many of the santas were backordered so those are still on the way...


I think I can decorate my entire tree in cross stitch. May take November to work on these rather than my rotation.

half way

Image
So I've passed the half way point of the page. 56/98 rows finished.


Unfortunately I also caved to the Christmas in July sales. I have many more ornament kits on the way...

But in lieu of those items, here's Clyde. It took 6 months, but he finally likes the bed we got him. Although being a cat, he still likes boxes.

Busy week

Image
I didn't get as much done as I would've liked. Dead tired Friday, spent Saturday making 2 scarves for my mom, and my "weekend" was filled with doctor's visits... So only up to 44 rows.


During a visit to my parent's, sat on my old bed (which Clyde has claimed as his) and didn't quite know what to make of me being in that location in the house.



Last photo was taken after we put him on the bed.
Although he's finally taken to his bed about 6 months after we got it for him. Silly kitty.
