Gifted Gorgeousness in October

I have finished stitching this piece! Now to FFO it for my husband's aunt.
One of these days I hope to make the actual ball.

Trying to Get this Done!

I have been forcing myself to stitch on this piece as much as possible. I stitch a little in the morning and then again in the evening. I am making progress.
There is a lot of backstitching to be done in these sections, so I am planning on doing a strand of floss every time I sit and stitch.

A New Start

I finally caved and started a new project. It is a red sampler and all I want to stitch.
I am using fabric that the shop put in the kit for me and Silk4u PR 126. I love it!

We are getting cool weather and I love how the leaves are starting to change colors.
I have been stitching on my stocking and I feel like I am making progress.
Here is where it was last time:

And here is where I am today:

People's Choice SAL

Well, it is the first Saturday of the month and it is time to post
Jo over at  Serendipitous Stitching host this and this month's topic is cats.
Have you seen the new design by Plum Street Samplers called Clementine?

It looks like our kitty and I may have to stitch this one.
I have a finish to share! And it has a cat in it too...
I had this stitched a bit ago and finally took the time to pop it in the frame. I need to pull another of the kits out to get another one done.
Have a great weekend!

Why is Life so Busy?

I find I can post on Instagram or Facebook, but blogging is becoming more of a chore. I think it is partially that my husband and I share the same computer. My goal is to get more than one post a week, but we will see!
It is the end of the month and the only Wipocalypse project that I have made much progress on is First Christmas Stocking.
I am so very close on this piece!  Melissa has a challenge for next month to place at least one stitch on a single project every day. Yep! I can do that, as long as we don't travel....               
I am also late on The Totally Useless SAL which is supposed to go up on the new moon, which was Saturday(?). Anyway, here is my ort jar on the art quilt I am stitching:
I am leaving some of the lavender in, but a lot will be covered in beads and stitching!
Oh! Melissa always asks a question and this month's is
What finishing style have you never tried but would love to do?
I hate finishing projects myself so this is a tough question. Do you remember the Uncle Sam's Hat?
 It is stitched and ready to be finished as shown below.
But there is sits in my basement, waiting for someone to "poof" make it into a hat. Until next month!
