It's been a while....

Ok, so I haven't been real good at keeping up with my blog this year.  But in my defense, I have been stitching more lately.  And I have proof....

This is one of my Crazy January challenge pieces.  It's from My Big Toe designs and it's called "Eat the Chocolate".   Have no idea how I will finish it yet so for now it's in the finished pile waiting to be "finished". 

 This next piece was a PIF chart from a stitchy friend and the chart is on it's way to the next person to stitch it.   I forgot who the designer is on this one.  The fabric is a random piece I found in my stash and I changed the colors for the floss to some fancy brands that I had on hand.  This will be turned into a fancy diva pillow for my craft room. :)

Next we have a small Lizzie Kate piece.   I used a random scrap from my stash and just plain old DMC floss for this one.  This will kinda be a companion piece to a previous LK that I did a few weeks back.  Both will be made into small pillows and will sit in a basket on my hall table.

This next tiny piece is a bonus chart that came with one of the Lizzie Kate boxers.  I wanted to pass the chart on so I quickly stitched this one up.  This will be turned into a pin pillow to go in my hall table basket.
 Next is the little daily SAL from my last blog post.  I finished this weeks ago but just never updated with a new photo.  This will be turned into a pillow using the autism awareness colors.  The picture doesn't do the bright colors justice, but I love the way it turned out.

Lastly is a pillow that I made for a Fall/Halloween exchange in my yahoo group.  This is the first time I did a pillow finish like this.  I love the way it turned out!   I plan to do a few more pillow finishes like this in the future.
See....I have been stitching.   I promise to *try* to update the blog a little better for the rest of the year.  I'm on a UFO finishing kick lately and I'm trying NOT to start any new things for the rest of the year.  Hopefully the next blog update will have a photo of a finished UFO.  No promises though,  you all know I can never stick to my goals.   Hope everyone is enjoying the crisp Fall weather!   Happy Stitching!
