Last set of gates

I just finished my third corner and am moving onto my last set of gates.  I'm starting to see a finish in my near future!

Another page finish

Monday night, I finished the south gates of my Romantic Rose Garden Mandala.  This is the only Chatelaine I have as a WIP right now and I'm pushing to finish it before I start another.

Here's the last picture I took


Last night I found the southeast corner and took the border about halfway up the left side.  I'm hoping by Sunday evening, I'll be pretty close to done with the garden in that corner.  I'll let you know how that works out.

Loneliness page 2

Wednesday night, I met another of my goals for this year.  This is page two of Loneliness of Autumn. 

 While I've enjoyed seeing the art come to life, I want to meet more of my goals this year so I put it away for now and moved to Chatelaine's Romantic Rose Garden.  

Here's before:

I've already gotten the first pedestal and urn done on the bottom gate.

Confetti!

Holy cow there is a lot of confetti in Lonliness of Autmn!  I know that's what gives it such great shading so I just have to deal with it.

I've been making pretty good progress.  Enough so that I'm hoping for another page finish this week.


Until then...

Snowy progress

Yesterday morning, before I managed to drag myself away from my warm bed, it had already started snowing...and it hasn't quit since then.  My DH cleared the driveway once yesterday afternoon and he's out there again now.  He did go into work this morning and said a stop sign in town has snow drifted to the very bottom of the sign.  This after we've not gotten any major snow this winter.  Yikes!  I'm waiting to see if I have to go into work tomorrow or not.  School has already been called off for the boys...lucky boys!


This week, I've made pretty good progress on Loneliness of Autumn.  I finished page 1 on 1/29/15.


Since then, I've gone all the way across page two and halfway down with lots and lots of 939.  I've started adding some 3371 too just for variety.  

Here's what it looks like now.


I'm planning on keeping this out for a while longer.  I seem to be doing pretty well with rotating projects by month.  Doesn't get a lot of progress done on any one project, but they all see some love that way...at least as long as I manage it.

Page finish!

I've just finished page two of Earth Song!   Yay!


I was debating sticking with the wolves for a bit, but I decided I'm going to go for a page finish with The Lonliness of Autumn from Love Thy Thread.  

Before:

Wolf #3

Over the weekend I found another wolf in Earth Song.  It took me all day yesterday to get him stitched though since he is definitely all confetti.  

I hope to finish the rest of the page by the end of the week.

I want to thank everyone for the well wishes in regards to my job search.  I ended up only being unemployed for one week.  Last Monday and Tuesday, I interviewed with two companies, both of whom extended me job offers and I started last Wednesday.  It took so much stress out of my life!
