Mermaid Stitch A Longs


I finished section 15 of the PR SAL#4  on Saturday night.  So excited because the new and last section came out on Monday morning.  I will probably  pull her out tonight to start stitching the last section.  On Sunday I pulled out this one to stitch on:


This one is PR SAL#2. I didn’t get to put too many stitches on her because I was so tired both Saturday and Sunday nights.  I even tried last night and just so tired.  I’m hoping It’s just my body still recovering from surgery.  This week will be 6 weeks, and I was told it would take my internal body about 6 weeks to recover.  So hopefully soon I can get back to my late night stitching 😉  I didn’t realize how much I missed this project until I started stitching on it.  Even though it is 28ct, it seems like a breeze stitching on it.  It must be the lighter fabric.  We shall see if I put this one away  to stitch on the other or if I continue on with this one…

What are you stitching on these days?

Late Night Stitching

It is 1:10 a.m. and I just couldn’t stop stitching until I completed section 12 of the Passione Ricamo Mystery SAL.  And I have to say, that is a lot of hair!  Beautiful, gorgeous hair, but a lot of it! Only 4 more sections to go and then finally a mermaid face will be revealed.  I can’t wait! I am very proud of myself for keeping up with this one.  Section 13 will be released on Monday, so I have a few more days to work on a new project that I started yesterday.  I will post more about that project tomorrow.  For now it is time for me to get to bed and get some sleep! Sweet Mermaid dreams 🙂

I’m Fitting Stitching in When I Can…

Hi! I can’t believe that the holidays are upon us!  I know that Christmas will be here before I know it, and I am behind in everything.  But I am not stressing.  I will do what I can, when I can and what gets done is good and what doesn’t, doesn’t.  That is my frame of mind right now.  I probably won’t get very much holiday stitching done again this year, but that just means I try harder for next year, right?  As long as I get stitching in 🙂  So, what have I been working on?  The Passione Ricamo SAL #3.

PR SAL 3 progressI really, really love stitching on this piece, but it may be time for a break.  I recently had to rip out the words “Fairies Dwell Here..” and the tree to the right of it and the box on the bottom right.  When I switched pages between the “r” in Fairies, I dropped down a line and and added an extra stitch.  So when I stitched all the way across and started connecting the tree top to the upper tree, things were off a stitch up and to the right 😦  I couldn’t find my mistake and had to ask dear hubby to help.  He found both of my mistakes.  So the ripping out began.  But it is all just about put back in and it’s looking wonderful.  On Friday I received steps 3-6 of Passione Ricamo’s SAL #4.  Here is how that one is looking after step 2, minus the beading.  I will save that until last.

PR SAL 4 progress

This one is going to be a mermaid!!  So excited for this one and I am hoping to keep up with the steps on this one.  A also finished stitching my first Christmas ornament of this year and have purchased everything I need to finish it into an ornament.  Usually I just make pillows, but this year I am going to try my hand at a real finish.  I will post when I get it done.  I also added a few new things to my stash thanks to shopping Small Business Saturday this last weekend.  I will post those next time also.  So, what you are you stitching for the holidays this year?
