Full Moon Madness

Those of you visiting here because it's the Full Moon and you have just updated your blog with a TUSAL post...I hate to tell you but you're doin' it wrong. You are 'bout two weeks late, girl! The TUSAL goes on the NEW MOON. It's WIPocalypse time on the FULL MOON! Whoops!

I have been chugging right along, working on that overflowing basket of want-to-stitch projects. My Finery of Nature was my focus in January, it was posted about here. I won't bore you with a repeat photo since that was my very last post. In February my focus is also my Theme-a-licious project, Bent Creek's Bad Hare Day:



This is the progress after only six days. Can you tell how much I LOVE stitching Bent Creek designs? Holey Moses, this is a fast stitch! I'm sure once I get to the hare and those big blocks of one color I might not be quite as enthused. The border is full of fiddly gaps and skips, which I thought would be really bitchy but it fooled me ~ easy and frog-free as the come. Those funny gaps get filled in with another color of green so this isn't quite as far along as it appears.

This fun project is from that big basket I showed you once before. There are so many designs left in that basket that I really-really want to stitch...how fun to have blog games to join in on and get some of them stitched! Thank you, Measi!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

LOL Appreciate the pointed finger at my whoops! O.o I just happened to look at the link for the TUSAL while posting my WIP...and one thing led to another...but it's fixed (for the most part)...I'm not gonna go and re-post the dang thing! ...happens

geeky Heather said...

LOL! I thought my feed reader was acting up when I saw some TUSAL posts. =)

That looks like it's going to be a cute design. Yeah, I could go look for what it's going to look like finished, but it's more fun to have the gradual surprise of watching you stitch it (I AM NOT LAZY). =)

Annie said...

That's a lot of progress and the stitching looks great. Wish I could make more progress lately! I just can't seem to stitch for long periods like I used to. This getting older thing is just not fun!

butterfly said...

Great stitching, Progress . I really need to get more done from my basket to, they keep growing in there I have to stitch faster or will never get them all stitched in my life time, ha. Have a great stitching week.

Shirlee said...

Nice to hear about a stitching project that is going better than anticipated ... especially after my tortuous Word Play fiasco! Bad Hare Day is on my to-do list : ) Blessings, Shirlee

Elena said...

LOL....thought I was late for the TUSAL check-in this month.
Nice progress on your stitching.

Margaret said...

lol about the New Moon versus the Full Moon. :D I'm glad I got it right. Love your stitching progress.

Gill said...

Wow, you've done heaps on Bad Hare Day!

Susan said...

Great progress. That looks like a really fun stitch, looking forward to seeing your progress.

Peggy Lee said...

Isn't it odd how some charts stitch up so fast and those that look so simple give you the biggest problems? Well that's the way it is for me anyway.
I have stitched a few Bent Creek designs and a few of them are hiding in my basket.

Great progress on the Bent Creek. I always think alphabets and text seem to stitch up very quickly

Julie said...

It's so gratifying when the border meets first time, looks beautiful.

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

O.K., I'm not so savvy about the terms, but what's a TUSAL? I think
the SAL is stitch along but I can't
find where someone says what the
T U stands for.
Hugs,
Susan

Susan At Glen Oaks Primitives said...

Oh, geesh, does it mean Tuesday Stitch Along? I just got it! Duh.
Hugs,
Susan

Excellent progress on Bad Hare Day! I love this one and can't wait until we see some of the bunny. Would you believe that I've yet to stitch a Bent Creek? Maybe it's about time I did!
BTW, there's a Clarisse update on my blog to ease your withdrawal symptoms, lol!

Threeundertwo said...

Anne said...
