Update on BAP Week (Picture heavy) and Giveaway Winners!

Can anyone tell me where last week went? I swear I last posted a couple days ago, turns out it's almost a week, again! DD and DH both are very sick with significant colds that have had both of them coughing and coughing. So far I've been spared, and I hope that continues. 

The hockey tournament was a lot of fun over the weekend! It's a great bunch of players, and they're different than the teammates of the tournament the week before. It's also a little slower, although I still managed to fall 3 times, one in each game, and that's unusual for me. I'm not sure if it's how my skates were sharpened or if the ice was in poor condition. The ice should have been great because it was so cold this weekend! -20C.... yikes!

I managed to pull the calf muscle on my right leg during one fall. I kind of fell into the boards, so I was lucky that was all that happened really. Here's my recovery position:

This was during the 2nd game and I felt okay to play the 3rd game. It was good overall and we all had a lot of fun!

Let's do the giveaway first. I had 3 people ask for the LK Smile chart and the winner was Leonore! There were 2 people that requested the LK Angels chart and the winner was Mini!

Congratulations both of you and please email me your addresses. 

Now on to the updates! I didn't work on a different project every day for March Madness (part of Theme-tas-Stitch), but I did work on a lot of BAPs. The ones I haven't shown updates for are:

Moon Hare (hard to tell progress)

Mini Winter Magic (top right corner)

Autumns Promise - new start!
2 over 1 tent stitch on 28 count Polar Blast by Chromatic Alchemy

I'm hoping to not stitch in the background, sort of work out from the dragon and see what fits. 

Princess and the Dragon

I'm still working on fixing the error, so this will come back out after this SAL week. 

Since I had some time between games on Saturday, I managed to stitch on my travel project, A Kiss for a Snowman, which was here:
and is now here:

and of course I went to The Wooden Needle and had a nice browse through the store. I managed to keep myself to these:

There may be one or two more I didn't include in the photo because they'll be part of Kaye's Easter Exchange this year. 

I think DD will like the lion/mouse one and I think my Grandma might like the covered bridge since that's a very Vermont scene. The others were in the clearance bin, so they had to come home with me too. :) 

I hope you all had a good week, and I will get my Top 5 Tuesday post up late tomorrow unless the impending snow cuts the power. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. Congratulations to your winners! You got some bargains too by the looks of things. Nice progress on your WIPS and I love Autumn's Promise, it's going to look gorgeous on that fabric!

  2. Nice progress Tiffany. Boy to you have a lot of huge projects. Mine (to me) are only semi large. lol Hope DD and DH get better soon and that you don't get it. Glad to hear the leg is doing okay.


  3. That is a lot of baps. Great to see a little progress on them all. Hope the family gets better soon.

  4. You have a lot of projects to choose to stitch on,all really different too.I like your stash acquisitions.
    zGlad you enjoyed your weekend and the injury was not severe.I hope DH and DD are better soon.

  5. Lots of projects, looking forward to your stitching:)

  6. Good to hear that you had fun at the tournament. Ouch that you got hurt. Hope you and family get well soon.
    That's a lot of projects with progress, well done you.
    Interesting stash, I think I have never seen the lion one before.
    Thanks for the giveaway win, I will send you an email soon.

  7. Congrats to the winners. Love your WIPs. Great new stash. Hope your family feels better quickly. It sure lasts a long time. We had it the whole month of January. Hope your leg gets healed up soon too.

  8. Congrats to the winners!
    I hope you're alright after that fall?!
    Great new stash & sweet updates on your projects.
    I want to stitch on Moon Hare NOW!!! :)

  9. Hope you're up and around after those falls. Nice progress and it is smart of you to pick a fabric that almost looks like the background! I have a pattern that I could do that to myself. Stay safe and warm!

  10. Congratulations to the winners. I love the fabric you've chosen for the little Autumn Dragon, it will look lovely and so much easier than all that background!
    Hope your leg recovers soon or at least allows you some guilt-free stitching time!

  11. Nice progress on your WIPs. I see you are an HAED fan like me.
    Hope your leg feels better soon.

  12. Great progress, your stitching is lovely! Hope your calf is feeling better today!

  13. UGH! Hope your family gets well soon. We've been fighting something here in our house as well. Of course, since I work at an elementary school, I'm kind of right in the middle of the petri dish! Your projects are looking good! Rest that leg and stitch!!

  14. Congrats to the winners!
    Nice WIP progress! Sorry to hear about the leg injury... that's why I don't play sport anymore (I would always get hurt at one point or another!)
    Hugs x

  15. I am a total klutz on the ice...I only ever attempted broom ball, which was a total blast...except for that one time they forgot we were coming and Zambonied the ice!! Great to see so many WIPs at once!!

  16. I hope the recovery position has helped a lot to feel better :)
    Great new stash that you bought at the Wooden Needle. That Vermont covered bridge looks gorgeous.
    And you made nice progress on your projects.

  17. Great progress and great purchases! I love the one with the lion. I'm really happy to get to stitch that cute smile pattern to, I will send you and email right now ^_^

  18. Such wonderful stitching!!!! I love everything you have done!
