I'm so slack

Gosh here it is almost the middle of June and I see that my last post was in April!! Well I can't guarantee I'll post more often but here's a few pics of what I've been up to!

First up is the piece I was working on for an Easter/Spring SAL:
Bent Creek - Easter Snapper
stitched as charted on 32ct jobelan

I then stitched up this little cutie:
Lizzie Kate - Egg Hunt
Stitched as charted on 28ct Antique White monaco.
Buttons from stash.

I also worked on one of my January Crazy 15 Challenge pieces, here's
my pitiful progress!
Lizzie Kate - Christmas Flip-its progress as at May 31, 2011.

I did manage to finish 2 of my other January Crazy Challenge piece
s which brings my total to 9 out of 15 finished. The last 6 pieces are are a bit bigger though and they include the above flip-its as well as Blue Ribbon Designs - Autumn Leaves & Sunflower Seeds; Jeanette Douglas Designs - Spring Stitches; Shakespeares Peddler - Sampler Roundy; Victoria Sampler - Christmas Treasures & M Designs - Floral Sampler. I still have quite a bit of stitching ahead of me if I am to finish these pieces this year, which is the goal!! Anyway, here's a couple of pics of finishes number 8 & 9 from the challenge.

Finish #8
Mill Hill Santa ornament
stitched as charted on perforated paper with DMC.
Stitching completed April 26, 2011.
This was my first Mill Hill ornament and won't be my last. I discovered that perforated paper is great to stitch on while travelling in the car, so I'll be making sure I have a kit handy the next long car trip we take as a family!

Finish #9
Just Nan - Tulip Time
Stitched as charted on 32ct Lavender Belfast.

Loved stitching this one and need to pull another Just Nan out of the stash!

Well that's it for me, I'm currently stitching on one of my other wips, Elizabeth Designs - In The Garden of My Heart, and am making some progress so I'll be sure to post a pic next time!

Happy Stitching & thanks for visiting!

Oh Amanda, I haven't blogged since January, and I don't know how it got to be June already.
You have done some great work this year. I love to see your pics.
"slack" is always relative!

You can join my club for slackies LOL. I am terrible at blogging also. Your finishes are lovely, love the Just Nan.

Oh I think my 18 months of slackness was funny when I discovered it yesterday :) so a mere 2 months is nothing. I love the egg hunt finish. Your post reminds me I should be stitching my or IRS and small thing, way more gratification in a small time frame.
