iStitch Advent SAL Days 7-9

Good evening everyone! you may have noticed I have been absent from posting my iStitch Advent SAL pics.  I went to go get DD from college after her finals and have now returned.  I only had my smart phone but had difficulty posting the pics to my blog and Facebook from the phone.  Plus I get a better picture with my actual camera.

So here are the past 3 days worth of the Advent SAL.

That's all I have for now to share until I get tomorrow's SAL.  I hope you are enjoying this as much as I am.

Thank you Carol for doing this again for us!!

Happy Stitching!

iStitch Advent SAL Day 6....

Well I would have posted this earlier but I had to go run an errand with DS and DH.  So while we were out, we decided to have dinner too.  WOOHOO....I didn't have to cook!  LOL

Here is where I am at for today.  I hope to get more of the border stitched in tonight but I'm not guaranteeing anything.

Happy Stitching!

iStitch Advent SAL Day 5.....

WOOHOOO!!!  I am posting today's Advent SAL part before 9pm tonight!  LOL  I have been full of energy today getting the house ready for company coming, and trying to decorate for Christmas.  But I just LOVE decorating for Christmas!!!

Here is my part for the iStitch Advent SAL.  You can still join by clicking HERE.

Now I need to go sew up an ornament from my "stitched ornament box" to give as a quick present.  Just like last year, I needed a "last minute" gift to give and thankfully I had another one in my stitched box!  I will share the finish here soon!

Happy Stitching everyone!

iStitch Advent Day 4.......

I am going to post Carol's link for our Advent SAL here if you still want to sign up.  iStitch  It is not too late to still join in our SAL.

Today, I printed off the chart this morning before going to church as DS was taking the computer to a friends house.  I have had a very busy Sunday, but I did manage to do my SAL this afternoon after the laundry was finished and the cake baked for our church Christmas fellowship tonight.

I did use the Kreinik braid again for today's small snowflake, and instead of just stitching in a small "x" for Rudolph's nose, I did a small French knot.  I have never mastered doing the Colonial knots but my French knots come out just as nice.  I hope you can see it.

Off to stitch on another Christmas ornament.  I thought I was done but after looking at my list......I am not.

Happy Stitching,

iStitch Advent SAL Day 3

Yeah.....once again I am here blogging about my finish late tonight.  And to think I thought I would have gotten all day to cross stitch!  I should NEVER post or say anything like that because every time I do, I NEVER get to as something always comes up.  I forgot that I had a dinner to attend tonight with DH, but thankfully I was reminded by looking on the kitchen calendar to see what was scheduled for today.

So here is my Day 3 of the Advent SAL.  I know you can't tell it in the picture too well, but I did use Kreinik 3231 #4 Braid for today's snowflakes!  I love how it makes it look sparkly on the fabric.  Tomorrow I am going to go back and take out the red stitches on my holly and replace them with tiny red beads that I am praying are in my bead stash.  If not, then I guess they get added to the shopping cart to be ordered.  

You will also notice that I pulled out my winter ORT catcher as well!  I just love that snowman fabric!!!  ⛄

Now back to my stitching as I haven't gotten as much stitching in as I had hoped.

Happy Stitching everyone!!!

iStitch Advent SAL Day 2

Yep....once again I am stitching the Advent SAL at night.  But none the less....I managed to get it stitched and more of the border!  I have only 2 errands to go do tomorrow so I HOPEFULLY....can get a lot of stitching done!

Here is where I have done!

And it's still not too late to join in our SAL!  Yes Carol had given us the entire border (which I hope to get stitched in tomorrow) but for now I am stitching it as I go along.  You can sign up her on her blog at iStitch.  Just email her and she will send you a Paypal invoice to get signed up.  It's that easy!!!

Happy Stitching!

iStitch Advent SAL Day 1.....

Yeah!!!  I was able to sit down and stitch up Day 1 of my iStitch Advent SAL tonight!  I had to change fabrics at the last minute as the 2 that I had ordered were too light for the white NPI silk to show up.  So I am stitching this on 32ct Raw Belfast linen with 2 strands of NPI silk over 2 threads.  Not my better choice but at least I'm not going to fall behind on the daily posting of the charts by ordering MORE fabric and waiting for it to arrive.

If you would like to join the iStitch Designs Advent SAL, you can go to Carol's blog iStitch.  She explains how to sign up and join our annual SAL!!!  It is a lot of fun and you don't want to miss out!!!

Happy Stitching!
