Friday For Finishing! and Some WIP Updates

Time to update some finishes! I managed to fully finish both the octopus and the card, and I even mailed the card out! I forgot to send a couple other things (sorry Linda, I forgot again!) so it's nice to know I'm still the same old forgetful me. 

Here's the finished Octopus made into a coaster:

And January into a card:

Plus I finished off one of my DUCJFC 2016 new starts:

It's not fully finished yet though. 

As is typical, once I give myself a deadline (Valentine's Day) for my next WIP (Somebunny) I want to stitch on something else instead. I decided to pick up Reflections of Canada by Ink Circles to get a little more done before working on Somebunny. 

Reflections of Canada was here on August 13, 2016:
and one night of stitching to here:

and then I remembered that I have a stand, apparently too many smalls makes me forget things that are right beside my stitching spot.. so I got a lot more done the next night:

2 handed stitching is so nice! And I picked up Somebunny the next time I had time to stitch and got quite a bit done while watching A Series of Unfortunate Events, the new Netflix series. 

Somebunny was here on November 12, 2016:
and now:

I'm really happy with this one, and with the progress I've been able to make in just one night. I really think that I'll be able to be done stitching in a week and be fully finished by Valentine's Day. There's no hockey tonight or tomorrow, so I'm really looking forward to the progress I might be able to make just this weekend. I think backstitch is the next thing I'll do to kind of catch up to the cross stitch. 

I hope you all have good stitching weekends, Happy Stitching!

  2. Congrats on the cute finishes Tiffany. Nice progress on the others. No problem on the chart. Thanks for letting me know. I was afraid it might have got lost in the mail.

    1. Thank you! And yes, I'm terrible about remembering to go to the post office. I'll try and include something special when I finally get it sent. I'm aiming for this week!

  8. Nice finishes and progress. I'm so impressed you play hockey! My knees scream just thinking about it. I watched a series of unfortunate events too. Neil Patrick Henry was pretty good. Now I'm watching Hell on Wheels. It got interesting the second season so I need to go back and watch the first. Happy Stitching!

    1. I love hockey! I played consistently from age 9 through 18, then intermittently since then until last year and this year I'm back to at least once a week. Thanks for the recommendation too!

  9. What pretty work. Love the octopus finish and the wonderful ink circles piece, that looks complicated. Somebunny nearly finished.

  10. Lovely cards, that octopus is adorable, love the Ink Circles, what a beauty.
    Back stitching does bring out a design sometimes I do not do back stitching due to sometimes it does not look good to me and other times it really does the design justice.

    Blessings

    1. Thank you! Some evenings I can get a couple straight hours if I ignore other tasks, and that happens more than it probably should.

  20. Love the coaster and card!! I'm the exact same, as soon as I set the deadline that's the last piece I want to stitch. Glad to see you did manage to make progress on Somebunny. You did amazing work on it and the Ink Circles piece.
