Final count on NaNoStitchMo

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you for all of the nice comments.  I managed to work on a total of 40 Clouds Factory projects in November.












I also crocheted another baby blanket.


I signed up for 3 SAL's on FB but not sure I will accomplish them this month.  I have orders for 2 crocheted baby blankets and 2 afghans.  In fact, Beth ordered the afghans for her 2 sons that are in collage in Ohio.  She would like them mailed to them the middle of January.  My love of stitching and crocheting will always keep me busy.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

UFO Progress

Hi Blogger Friends.  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and found time to stitch.  DH had to work so I spent the day with my cats and the computer.  I have managed to work on 25 UFO's and I crocheted an afghan.

























 The only way I'm going to get all 50 worked on this month is to do just a few stitches in each one.  I'll see how that works.  lol

I love the colors in this afghan.  It is light blue not white.

 I have been doing a lot of thinking about my stitching plans for next year.  I have a couple ideas but I need more.  I still have a gazillion projects started so one thought was when I finish 2 I can start 1.  Any thoughts on a rotation or schedule would be appreciated.

I found a new to me shop on Etsy:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/AwesomePatternStudio/items  I HAVE TO HAVE ALL OF HER CITY CHARTS.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

Crochet Madness and Finally Stitching

Hi Blogger Friends.  Did you miss me?  I have been crocheting like a mad woman for the last six weeks.  We have a very dead pine tree in the back yard.  If it falls it will land on our house or the neighbors.  We don't have the money to get it cut down so I have been crocheting afghans and trying to sell them.  I did these and they are in a store in town.  She just has them folded on a shelf so I will be very surprised if she sells any of them.




I did get orders from my neighbor and DH's co-workers for 6 baby blankets, a toddler blanket and an afghan.  I have made 3 baby blankets.  (Forgot to take a pic of one.)



Toddler blanket

I'm working on the afghan now.  It is the same pattern as the third picture.

Last month I joined a SAL group on Stitch Maynia FB group.  It is NaNoStitchMo.  You stitch somehow related to 50.  It could be 50 starts, 50 minutes or 50 stitches a day or 50 WIP's etc.
I have 66 Clouds Factory charts started so I decided to work on 50 different ones for the month.  Of course I'm behind as I only started stitching 3 days ago.  So now I'm playing ketchup. (lol)

UFO 1-2/50


UFO 3-4/50


I have decided its time to start selling my excessive charts and kits that I am never going to stitch.  I hope to start listing them on my stash for sale page in the next few weeks.  I will let you know when I do.  I have over a 1,000.

Thanks for stopping by.   Linda

I managed to start The Apple Orchard by CCN on the 19th but don't have much done.  My stitchy bug called and he is at the North Pole hanging out with Santa.  He said he won't be back until it gets cold.  I guess there won't be alot of stitching progress by me for a while longer.
