Solo September Finish #2

I hope everyone has had a good month! I had a very busy month with a big birthday, an awesome new stand and 2 finishes for Solo September. Thank you again for hosting a great OAAT project month Justine!

I finished Rejoice Tree last week and I'm still in love with it. I forgot to mention I used that invisible thread for the beads and it was a bit of a pain, but I love the effect. 

Then I was debating about what to start, and I realized that with a few days of work I'd have LK's Ho Ho Ho complete. I was on the Fuzzy Stuff section for the beard, and it was much easier to work it while seated indoors than my while a passenger in the car.

I'm not 100% sure how I'm going to finish this one or if I'll keep it for myself. I like it a lot, and DH does too, but inspiration hasn't struck yet. Maybe this could be my first cube finish? It's maybe 5x7 ish in size. 

I've changed out my passenger project to Collect Moments by LK and it looked like this back in January:

I have a few more pink letters on it now, but I neglected to take a photo last time I worked on it. It shouldn't take too long to finish. 

I'm also thinking about what to work on for the rest of the year and what I may start for next year. I succumbed to the latest HAED sale, thanks for the tip Kate :)

My current idea is to try and stitch a page on a BAP once a month to try and move some of these along. There are others I'd like to stitch as well, so I'm going to see if having a set schedule might help me move along to finishing some of my 50+ WIPs. 

First I'll need to try and finish a few for this year, so I'll try and sort out my ideas over the weekend and post about it so I have a record of it. I always appreciate any advice too, so please feel free to chime in with any of your ideas for 2017 or thoughts. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. What a cute tree! I love the Ho Ho Ho piece. Gorgeous! And 3 of your 4 HAEDs are ones I have contemplated in the past. I look forward to seeing what you decide to work on. :)

  2. Well done on a second finish! I like the saying on your LK - very, very true. Great choices in HAED charts. If you're going to work on BAPs, I'd say alternate between lots of colours and few(er) colours for variety - and sanity!

  3. Ooo look at that fun floss. Fuzzy Stuff does neat things to a project but I am convinced people must have a special sort of patience to use it or Whisper haha.

    Oops, a HaED sale! I'm sure things just miraculously fell into your basket, right? :D

  4. Ho Ho looks great. Go for the cube finish! I think it will look great. Love your HAED's. Wisper and I don't get along so good for you for a job well done with the stuff! I already know what I'm doing in 2017 and they are all Big! One is a HAED wannabee:)

    1. Awesome! I hope you have good luck getting lots of it stitched up in 2017. Thank you!

  5. Congrats on the cute finishes Tiffany. Love your new stash.


  6. Well done on your finishes! Beautiful HAED patterns!

  7. The tree is lovely and well done on the ornament on black, I do admire those who stitch on black fabric.

  8. Lovely solo September stitching,Your tree is so pretty:)

  9. Well done on a great month's stitching! Rejoice is beautiful and I love Ho Ho Ho. Great job on the fluffy thread!
    I love the first of your new HAEDs, it's gorgeous. I love all these planning posts! I am still throwing ideas round for next year.

  10. I love Santa's beard. It looks great. I applaud your efforts to do a Heaven and Earth design. I am amazed at really how beautiful they stitch up

  11. Both of your Christmas finish are beautiful. Love hohoho, I think it would look fantastic as a cube. LOVE your new HAED charts.

  12. Great finishes!!
    Lovely new charts too, they will be fantastic to work on :)

  13. Lovely finishes!! 4 HAEDs are a big challenge. I hope you find the right schedule to work on all your projects:)

  14. Oh wow, you even finished two projects for Solo September, that's awesome. And both are so beautiful.
    Nothing wrong with succumbing to a HAED sale, their charts are just too tempting. I haven't started any of my HAEDs so far but want to do start at least one of them before the year is over.
    A great plan to work on your BAPs next year. It's my plan as well.

  15. Lovely tree design and I love the Ho Ho Ho piece too.

  16. Well done on your lovely finishes!
    Your new HAED's are lovely. Like the BAP plan - that is a great way to get some progress on them :o)
    Hugs xx
