I know that is what everyone is thinking. Sorry sometimes life gets in the way of everything, Anyway I have a bit to share, so here we go. If you are in any of the Facebook groups you probably heard that May 1st was the beginning of Stitch Maynia. I selected to work only on wips for my Maynia so I set up a list of smalls I could take with me on my cruise. To be totally honest the most stitching I did while on vacation was actually on the plane to and from Florida. It was on a piece I had just recently started call "This Is How We Brew It" from Hand On Designs. It is part of a 9 piece series, so far I only have the first three. This is being stitched on 28ct Lugana called Iris from Under the Sea Fabrics.
Day 9 was "Marquise" from Jardin Prive' stitched on 32ct Jobelan from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie in Seafoam. I had only finished the lady before Maynia.

It seems we've survived another month and it's time for an update. I believe I said at the beginning of the year that I was going to try and focus on finishing old wips. Well it hasn't worked out exactly that way, other things have kept me a little busy. Since my last post I have worked on FFOs:
Some were finally finished and given away, but not before I got pictures.
I have updated a few Facebook group SALs:
This is from the Snowflower Diaries 2016 SAL (I guess you could also call it a finish).
This one is the Linen & Thread SAL. I'm getting close to finishing the March band so I can start April's on time. I used a gift from a subscriber to my flosstube channel and stitched this piece, it is from the WOCS magazine design library by Durene Jones. (issue 252).
There wasn't a name for her, but I will call her "Iana". I even have another new start
this is "Marquise" from Jadin Prive'.
This month's question is "What stitchy blogs, groups or flosstube do you follow, and why? Well as my fellow blogger Jo at Serendipitous Stitching said I follow quit a few blogs also. I love reading about and seeing close-up pictures of beautiful stitching and having a little visit with other bloggers. It's like reading letters from friends. I also belong to several Facebook stitching groups, I get a chance to actually interact with my favorite designers and other stitchers from all over the world. A lot of the stitchers have decided on to make flosstube (youtube) videos, including myself. With flosstube you can watch or just listen to (while you stitch ) wonderful stitchers talk about their progress updates, their lives and most fun of all their new stash. I love having my friends stop by to keep me company while I stitch and I make my videos to return the favor. You can watch my videos here . I'm off now to make some more wonderful little xxs.

Now I will show you what I have worked on this month first I started on the March design for the Snowflower Diaries "Joyful World SAL" from 2016. I was trying to get ahead of the designs this year, maybe I can get them finished.
Next I worked on the Cloudsfactory "Game of Thrones Houses & Banners", eventually it will be given to my daughter. I have only to finish the last section and then it's ready to be framed.
