Nancy's Tis The Season Stitch Along...


Hi Chooky,

     Boy, I am so slow! 
But here are the first three blocks finished. I had them finished three weeks ago, except for the last two letters stitched on Bon Noel, but came to a screeching halt with the warm weather, outside activities and health issues.
    Anyway, they are finally finished and I have started on April's blocks, hopefully I will work faster now.
    I keep getting distracted by another project, "Ice Cream Sundae" from Paula Stoddards book 'Hooked on Fats 2'. 
This isn't a very good picture (shows just six of the twelve blocks I have ready), but this is one of those projects that has been ready to put together for a long time and now it is SCREAMING at me...I can hear it all the way upstairs *sigh*. UFO's don't usually bother me but this one is really getting under my skin.  Anyone else have those kind of projects?
    Well, forgive me for working at a snails pace, I plan to stitch the rest of the afternoon and evening away so I'm off, needle in hand.
         Big Hugs,
            Nancy
OH...Now you can mark me for three finished blocks (I'm really tired of looking at that '1', LOL).

I can see why you might be a wee bit behind, but I love "Ice Cream Sundae". So beautiful. You'll get the TTS blocks done in no time.
