Finishes and Bouncing Around

Another week gone already? I had planned on a post a few days ago and here we are almost a week after my last one. :) It's been busy with visitors and work, but all good. 

Stitching wise I managed to finish Linus:

and a bonus of two Snoopys that were included in the Schroeder chart. There was another one, but it didn't look very much like Snoopy, so I didn't stitch that one. 

I was at a bit of a loose end after this one as there are lots of things I should be stitching, and I'm still not sure what I'd like to work on in September for Solo September hosted by Justine. It's my birthday month and I have a big one this year, so I'd like to work on something special. However, I seem to have a plethora of WIPs that are special in some way. Or a new start? It's possible. :D

I ended up finishing off the yellow in the Rainbow Butterfly, but I have to track down the correct green. It's supposed to be DMC 700 I think and I bought DMC 699 instead. I must have a skein somewhere, it's finding it that's proving difficult. 

I also pulled out my folding file of WIPs, there are 25 or so that fit in this bin and the rest are stored in the craft area. I chose A Kiss for a Snowman that was here back in January:

and added a little bit more:

I also picked up Tribal Dragon, but I stitched on that while traveling to Montreal for an Alouettes game and forgot to take a photo. But DH took one of us at the game, so I hope you'll be satisfied with that:

It was a good game, even though they ended up losing. It was very close until near the end. 

I might pick up Tribal Dragon again tonight since Kiss for a Snowman has a fair amount of colour change and we've been biking 2 days in a row, so something simple sounds right about what I need. Then I'll have a photo for you soon. :)

I hope you've all had a nice weekend!

Happy Stitching,



  1. Love the cute Linus and Snoopy...the picture of you both is wonderful

  2. I love the Snoopy. My mom LOVES him. Too cute! Linus is adorable too. Congrats on the finishes. I love the butterfly. Beautiful colors! The snowman looks too cute too. Good luck deciding what to work on.

  3. Cute finishes!! Good progress on your WIPs. I should count my WIPs, they must not be more than 15.
    Lovely photo of both of you:)

  4. Great stitching - and what a wonderful picture of you and DH. Looks like you're both having fun!

  5. Stitching looks great, and you two look fabulous!

  6. I can count WIPs on one hand! Hobbies in general not so much. :D

    The little Snoopy stitches are great! Too bad the third didn't look right. Are there any of Woodstock? And shucks about buying another floss haha. It's amazing how many variations of the rainbow exist in DMC and how one never has the right one!

  7. Two finishes (well, three actually) and two progress. That's a good week's stitching. And great photo.

  8. Adoro Snoopy!! Che belli i tuoi progressi

  9. Congrats on the cute finishes Tiffany. Nice progress on your WIP's. Great pic of you and hubby.


  10. Great stitching update, you have been busy :)
    Nice to put a face on your name too! Looks like you had a great time!!

  11. What fun finishes! The game sounds fun. Hope you had a blast!

  12. Linus and Snoopy are so sweet. And nice progress on your WIPs.
    I'm also still thinking about what to pull out for Justine's Solo September - but with 30+ WIPs it's not so easy to find the perfect one, lol.

  13. Great to see the photo of you and DH, and to put a face to the name! (I'm not so brave!)
    I need to count my WIPs too, it's something I've been meaning to do for ages .... I've started so many patterns, and haven't got very far on them.
    Aren't the peanuts characters so sweet, and just the thing to stitch! Your Linus is really cute!
    I keep putting new threads with my latest project instead or away in the thread keeper, then start a new project and those new skeins are forgotten ... such a nuisance! Hope you find yours soon!
    Hugs, Barbara xxx

  14. As you can see I'm behind with blog reading again! Lovely to see a pic of you and DH - looks like you had a great time.
    Snoopy is so cute!

  15. Great photo of you both!
    Love your snoopy finishes!
    Hugs xx
