1st TUSAL of 2015

I'm so glad that Daffycat is once again hosting her Totally Useless Stitch Along this year (Link here).  Each new moon, I'll update a photo Old Ratty Threads as another way to show how much stitching I have accomplished.  Here's where I am as of Jan 1
 



 and Today
Jan 20:  



I've also been busy stitching on L*K Christmas Rules.  Still waiting on "the boy" to fill in that "R".  Don't be too hard on him, I haven't put it down long enough for him to get his hands on it : D.  



I also had a time on a work break to pick up this little guy.  Can't believe I started it in Jan 2012?   Here is where I was when I picked it up:



Here's where I am now. Cant find one of my DMC's or I would have gotten further along:




Well that's it for now my readers.  Happy stitching!  =)Pam

Update on Christmas Rules

I have an update! I had hoped to be further along, but I experienced the worst Migraine I've had in many years on my day off so was not able to stitch @ all that day.  You'll notice the "R" is not filled in yet...because my 14 year old son has asked to stitch that part : D. Makes a momma's heart happy.  
 
Jan 9 2015
Our area has experience extremely cold temps for the last couple of days.  We woke up to 11 degrees yesterday and schools were even delayed.  It's a little warmer today and set to be in high 40's this afternoon!  Thank goodness no moisture was in the air.  We are just not prepared for that here!
 That's all I have for now.  Hope you're all warm and healthy on this cold Friday.  Happy Stitching!  =)Pam

HAPPY 2015!

It's a new day, its a new year!  I hope you've all had a splendid holiday season.  I was super busy, but am back with the stitchy bug in tow.  I left you hanging a bit back in Nov. so without further delay, here is my completed wedding sampler: 
a bit wrinkly, but you get the gist!
 The wedding was beautiful. The weather was warmer than expected & for that we were pleased! We're taking it to the framers tomorrow, as I'm letting the bride choose her framing.

Back to that bug I alluded to earlier.  (drum roll please)   I have a new start!  Patterns were purchased in 2012 and correct size fabric in 2013.  I am please as punch to begin this.  Of course my goal is to have it framed and hanging on my wall Dec 2015. 

Yep, a BAP(for me anyway) Christmas Rules by Lizzy Kate
 I was able to work on it yesterday and here's where I am so far....

That's it for now, my readers.  I'll update when I can.  Happy stitching everybody!  =) Pam
