IHSW report/SAL updates

Two posts in one! :) 

After finishing Sergei on Friday, I didn't do any stitching at all on Saturday.  Thank you to everyone that gave me input on Pinterest.  I decided to take the plunge and now I'm happily pinning!  I found it a great place to keep my recipes that I find...and excitingly...like I see some of you do...it's a great place to "store" the stitching freebies our there!  I LOVE THAT!  Plus I will keep my various wishlists there as well.  It's a whole new world!  Anyway...enough about that!

Sunday was SAL day with Kati...Here's progress on Suzannah.  Not much, but it was something.  I'm hoping that next Sunday will give me more time with her.

Then on Monday I finished my second square on of Fatmen SAL.  Love him!  And finally...I have been eyeing this little birdhouse since the first time I saw this chart as a whole and now I got that one done too...it's so cute..it makes me smile.  I loved stitching it.

We're having thunderstorms tonight....which I love, so I'm going to sit and enjoy and pick up my 5 golden rings and stitch that up.

things are looking good! Suzannah looks great and congrats on finishing the second snowman!

On the bird house did you do the stripe under the roof in black or the green it calls for?? I'm definitely going to change the green to something else...

Dee said...

I love snowmen! Yours are adorable!

Barbi you've made great progress! I love the snowman with the yellow/gold hat. I hope to get the snow friends done next week and then start on the birdhouse.

Anne said...

She's lovely Barbi! Especially with some ground to stand on!!! The snowmen are coming along nicely too!!

Yeah, Pinterest is fun. It's where I store all the craft ideas I come across online. Now I don't have that "where is that website I knew I bookmarked" problem anymore :)

Suzannah is looking great. I still love that birdhouse too. It's so cute.

Hugs,
Veronica.

Great progress!
I have not taken the Pinterest Plunge yet. I just don't think I can take the time :)

I love the polka-dot background behind snowman #2! The birdhouse & Cardinal is my favorite part so far!

Suzanna looks great. I'm looking forward to seeing more letters! I love letters!

Suzannah is looking quite sassy with that hand on her hip!

Barb said...

Oh Barbi Susannah looks as if she is skateboarding this week.
Snowmen are fab look forward to next update. Elizabeth has a white face at last!

Carol said...

I've been resisting joining Pinterest, Barbi--already spend way too much time on this darn computer as it is :) But, I do enjoy looking at what others have pinned to their boards...

Your latest fatman is so cute as is Suzannah. You made a great choice in your fabric for the snowmen--they show up really well!

Linda said...

They are both coming along nicely and it's lovely to see everyones progress each week.

♥ Nia said...

I love 6 fat men :) but it's the first time I see someone stitching that with a darker fabric and it looks great!! Really pops out :D

Deb said...

Great progress on both your pieces - even a little bit is good. And isn't Pinterest great? But you can just spend hours and hours there!

Mangogirl said...

Linda said...

Both SAL's are coming along nicely and the birdhouse is so cute.

Enjoy the thunderstorms.
