Back in the Groove

So my plan for the new year is going well, except, I have not been blogging as I had hoped. My plan is to update at least weekly.

After I finished my ornament for January, I pulled out a project I actually started last New Years Day but did not get very far.

Yup, this is And They Sinned. My goal is to stitch 1 pattern page every 3 months. I am not going to push this one real hard as it is intense! I finished the 1st page last week and here is where it stands now.

The background of this section gets filled in, but I am going to wait until the very end. I might change this up a bit.

So, out of my bags of many, came out another WIP.

This is Patches of Life Sampler. As you can see, I started this in 2012. Yikes! I love it and am anxious to finish it. I have been working on it now and here is where I am at.

I am going to work on this one for awhile now. I have been collecting ornament patterns so I am ready to go come the 1st of February. I am excited about my plan.

I have to share one more photo. My Kirby. He is always by me, wherever I am.

He is my secret service...literally.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Oh, I wish I had my own Kirby here who would be always at my side! My two kitties aren't even lap cats sadly.

Anyway, lovely stitching! I haven't seen that last one before - very nice!

Kirby looks like a sweetie! Gorgeous progress on both pieces. I love the Patches of Life sampler.

I really like the sampler you are working on. I am not familiar with Patches of Life. Can you tell me where I might find this chart or is it something that is out of print or not available any more?
