Birthday Bash Box

This was very late, but it's here now. Stitchy Box has had delays in getting things to them to wrap and ship.


Preparing The Way

Almost halfway done with this already. It'll be next week's daily project.


The Good Life

This is done. Yay! One more thing done. I have to get a bigger than usual hoop to frame it in.

Long Tongue

Look at that oh so long tongue on that puppy.

A Late Stash

This came a couple of months later than the rest of the 123Stitch order. But it's here now. And it will be started.


Second Round

Yay, coursing around the second circle now!


More Eyes

There are a lot of eyes on these frogs. 


Carol Contemplating

Carol is showing her unique sitting style in this photo as she judges something off to the side. The one ear up and one down is also typical Carol.

Sew Sampler Box January 2021

So much orange in this month's box! I hope they get off this orange kick soon. The pins seem neat - they're meant to be able to be ironed.


Ink Spot #17: Fountain Pen Day by Ink Circles - Work From Home #10 2021

This will have fountain pens in the middle when I get it done. I already know who I'm giving it to.


Second Line Close

The second line is almost done. Every time I work on this, it gets a lot of progress.


Grayson The Noble

Grayson looking like the prince of the subdivision in this photo. And very relaxed.

Sew Sampler December 2020

Not sure I truly like the colors, but once I get the sewing machine settled, I'll start working with it.


Chocolate Covered Hearts by Fern Ridge Collections - Work From Home #11 2021

This little piece took only a day to complete. It is now off to its new home.

More Babushka Carol

Carol likes wearing scarves. And she looks good in them. But they make her look like an old lady, too.

Another ornament done! This came together pretty quickly; not sure if I'll do this again in a different color soon.


Stitcher's Joy by Prairie Moon - Work From Home #8 2021

This is nearly halfway done, and was from a JCS Christmas issue.


More Christmas Presents

Andreas got me watercolor brushes and scissors for Christmas. They just came late.


Sunset And Grayson

Leonora took this beautiful puppy and sunset photo in International Village last autumn.

Glassing Over

Working on the glass more at this time. It's still hard to see all that black.


Sashiko Sampler by Stitched Modern - Work From Home #6 2021

I started this sashiko sampler that I got for Christmas. The purple thread isn't showing in the photo!


Placemats from Betsy

Andreas' mom made these cute busy bee placemats for us. Thank you!


Lazy Grayson

The head is done. Time to finish off the torch!

Random Snowflake

This wasn't logged as started anywhere, but it is. I like the colors. It'll get done soon.


Patreon Swag

These cute things came from Tracy at Ink Circles. I wasn't expecting them! The mandala sticker is now on my laptop.


Grayson Elongated

Grayson can take up the whole length of the bed.

Necklace And Bracelet

A necklace and a bracelet made to get rid of extra packaging. I'll need to wear these soon.

Still A Hedgehog

Andreas says this looks like a hedgehog. He's been saying that for a while.


My Gryffendor Dog

 Grayson has a lot of Gryffendor traits. Looking good in a cape and tie is one of them.

Closing The Knot

I am so close to getting the largest circle of knots done. This is coming down to the home stretch.


Kanban EV

They have revamped the rules and made metal cars for Kanban, so we have the new version now.

Guarding The Road

Perhaps because of his breed, Grayson likes to stop and look over the scenery. For threats? For friends? For sheep? Who knows?

Three Little Pots

I marbled the three little pots then put moss and plastic plants in them. They're now in the windows at work.


Down One Side

This time I did the swirls on the sides. I guess I will start the third flower next.


My Little Elf

I can definitely see Carol as an elf. But I think we can't add it to her titles. She's got too many already.

Catharine Redford's Sampler by Catharine Redford - Work From Home #9 2021

This was a one session stitch. I got it as a freebie when I ordered some thread from Global Artisans last year. And now, it's done. Yay!


Gift From Leonora's Mom

Leonora's mom gave me this beautiful she embroidered and edged in crochet herself. She did such an excellent job on both. It's gorgeous.


Derpy Grayson

Carol photobombing and judging Grayson simultaneously while he makes little stupid faces, like he just woke from a nap.

Wild Wood by The Crewel Work Company - Work From Home #5 2021

A little start with one leaf almost done.



Merging the glass and the bottle now. Lots of black that doesn't show up well.


Leonora's Cake

Leonora's birthday was last month. We had this cake made by Rudi's for her. It was cute and tasted pretty good, too.


My Baby Shark

Chad was such a cute little baby shark.  We've kept the costume for next year, too.
