Success

 I am so excited with what I accomplished over my 4 day weekend.  I'm one cup closer to my goal on Whole Lotta Late'.


Granted I may not touch it again until the week before Christmas, because of decorating, party prep etc, but I'm closer!!

It's also beginning to look a little like Christmas at my house.  My son took down all the fall decorations and started decorating outside after school yesterday!

I'll try and update again with some of my inside decorations.  Still hosting my annual homemade ornament swap so there is lots to do to prepare.  Until next time...Happy Stitching!  = ) Pam

I'm such a slacker!

Y'all I have every intention of updating you on my stitching, but only seem to get around to updating Instagram (farmboyslove).  I've worked on several things and have managed a small finish. 



 I've had some decent progress on Whole Lotta Latte'.
 My plan is to put at least an hour a day each weekend on it thru the end of the year.  The goal is to complete the 2 cups I've started this year and then I'll only have 3 more to finish in 2017,  


Speaking of 2017.  I have some loose plans with regard to my stitching.  The biggest thing is I've joined the stitch from stash 2017 group.  I am limiting myself to $25/month spending on stitching supplies and stash over an above my Fabric of the Month subscription.  I'm only going to start something new in Jan if I finished what I started that day this year.  In February I'm only going to start  Legitimate Freebie Patterns. As of right now I'm only going to start 3 at the most.   In May again I will only start something new for Maynia if what I started last year is completed by then. It really does mess with my brain when I have too many projects going at one time.  So far that's all I've got for next year. Not much, but its mine : ).
Until next time, Happy Stitching!  = ) Pam
