I managed to work on three projects this month:
This month we are to talk about our progress on the projects that were on our WIP list. Well I did stitch on each of my projects quite regularly. But this is the first year that I have not had any finishes. I really thought I would finish the Garden of Faith Hope and Love as it is not a large project. But I have been working every other week on Little Fairies at Play in the hopes I can get it finished sooner rather than later.
I am going to re-look at my rotation for 2017 and see how I can re-vamp it to get more finishes.
I will not update my WIPocalypse 2016 page until December is over as I still have 2 weeks to work on projects.
I also have purchased my empty ornament to put my 2016 orts in.

We are almost done remodeling the bedroom. Just need a new curtain and some bedside lamps.
Tomorrow we are moving my father from assisted living into the Health Care Center. (Nursing Home.) I guess Health Care Center sounds better.

I have Monday off as we are moving my Dad from assisted living to nursing home side. Maybe later in the day I will get some extra stitching time.

I now have new carpet in the bedroom, it is painted and I am just needing a bed. Once I get my bedroom done I will work on turning the spare bedroom into my craft room.
This week I am working on Little Fairies at Play and then next week I will get back on track with Faces of Faery 90.

Skipping the question of the month as I can't think of a story. Each of my projects are picked for a reason especially since most will take a long time to complete. Some I am attracted to the bright happy colors, some the subject matter.

I have watched snippets of the Olympics. Seems like it was always track and Bolt was running/winning.
I am also re-doing my bedroom. It is almost empty and the painting can begin. Then new carpet and some new furniture.

It has been so hot here I have not mowed my lawn in 3 weeks. I have been waiting for a cool day and have not found one yet.
My daughter gave us free tickets to the Brickyard 400. So we spent last Sunday at the Indianapolis Speedway. Tempatures were 92 but with humidity it felt like 108. I wish all of the sweating led to weight loss. But it didn't.
One more week of work (and lots of overtime) and then I leave on vacation. I will pick one of my smaller projects to take with me.

One more week then I leave on vacation. Taking a project with me. In the past I have taken Summer Sensation and gotten sick on both trips that I had it packed as my travel project. So I will be leaving it at home and taking Garden of Faith Hope Love.

I am back to working on Little Fairies at Play. My goal is to finish page 9 before the end of the year.
Wednesday, June 22, 2016
This month's question is do you stitch more in the Summer or Winter. I was just thinking about this as I looked at my meager progress. I do stitch more in the Winter as I am trapped more inside. The Summer brings yardwork, trips and other outside activities.
I will be watching the Summer Olympics as much as I can and stitching while watching. But I will not be participating in the stitch a-alongs. Of course I might change my mind. If I do participate it will be on the one where I go for distance on one project.

Little Fairies at Play. Started page 9 and I will pick this one back up this week.
Someone asked to see what charts I purchased in the last HAED sale. Here are the ones I got:
QS A Stitch in Time Garden - love the colors in this one.
QS A Stitch in Time Sweet Life
QS Poppy Fairy
QS Porthole of Fantasy
QS A Stitch in Time by Moonlight
I figured I would never finish the large design these QS were taken from. They are small enough I have a better chance of finishing one of these smaller ones. But I still need to find more stitching time.
This month we were to talk about what we were stitching this time last year. I was of course stitching Little Fairies at Play, Butterfly Fairy Night and I had just started Faces of Faery 90. And I am still stitching them all.

I did buy 5 more HAED charts during the past 2 sales. So I need to get it in gear if I have any hope of finishing anything.
This month we were to talk about what we listen to while stitching. Most of the time I am watching tv Occasionally when I am home alone I do put on the radio and stitch away. I do get more done with the radio on.
