February's Projects

Well, it has taken a bit of time to get some pictures taken of my February stitching, but it would help if I had batteries in the camera that were full!! LOL

One of the things I hope to accomplish this year is to make a wash/dish cloth each month. This is the one for February. I find that it is easier on my eyes if I knit or crochet in the evenings, when I have a tiring day at work, so these washcloths are a nice evening project. I also have a pair of socks going and a scarf or two!! can't remember!!! CRS is taking over very quickly. LOL
Here is one of the projects from my challenge of 15 new ones for the year, didn't get very far did I??
Here is good old Sanctuary by Drawn Thread - my hopes is to get this done this year, but then again I have been saying that for about 2 or 3 years now!!!
Another newbie, Witches Hollow, but it was started last year. In hopes of getting this done by August.
Here is my ornament for the month of February - it is from the 1999 JCS Ornament issue - it is called No L by Eileen Bennett.
Now here is Quaker Christmas - don't know what happened, but this was to be finished in 2009 (notice date on picture) and it has been put away twice now!!! not sure what is bothering me about this piece, but it will be finished with any luck by the end of March - at least that is my goal for this piece.
This is from a class I took with Catherine Jordan at the San Francisco EGA Seminar. The box top is done and the inside piece is painted, just have to put some stitching on the piece - a sea monster and a mermaid. This is another piece I hope to have finished by the end of March.
Here is Tis the Season from the BBD Joyeux Noel. Almost done it is set to be finished by the end of this month. I just love the bird on this piece.
Work is keeping me busy, so my computer time is becoming so limited, I do try to read as many blogs as I can, but I am finding it hard to always comment, so do know my friends from the blog world that you are still part of my life.

Thank you for visiting me.

Lots of great projects Roberta - but how can you fit in time to crochet/knit dishclothes?? LOL! I have a basket of yarn but no time for it. All of your projects look grand - I would concentrate on finishing the one furthest along first - gives you a mental boost to take on the next one in line sometimes. Quaker Christmas looks almost done - you're so close on a few on these I know you can do it!

Lovely stitching especially the Sanctuary, you must finish it. I do like Eileen Bennett's designing, I went to a class of hers just after I came to the States, a lovely lady. I'm a bit slow with the Fifteen too, though I have one small finish!

Margaret said...

So many pretty projects! I love seeing all of them. That Catherine Theron one is really cool!

Nancy said...

I like your blue and white dishcloth Roberta, and every one of your stitching projects is gorgeous! I wish you had more time to work on them.

Karen said...

happy stitching...

I agree with you Roberta - I love some mindless knitting when I am too tired to stitch - it really relaxes me before bed. Love all your projects - WOW - you've got some beauties almost finished up - Quaker Christmas is gorgeous and I love the BBD tis the season - I had everything pulled for it last year and just never started it. Sanctuary is gorgeous - I think Jeanne had a great suggestion - pick one and get have yourself a fine finish! Good luck Mel

Wow, what fabulous pieces you are working one. It is so hard to pick a fav. They are all beautiful.

I hear you about reading and commenting on all the blogs. I follow so many and do try but don't always have the time. :( But thank you for commenting on mine. :)
Have a great weekend.

We all have times when it's hard to get around and say what we mean, but one day things will calm down and you can do that and stitch and whatever else you wish! I say as long as you're making progress, keep on stitching!

Brigitte said...

Such an eventful post, eventful regarding your stitching. Wonderful projects, all of them. I'm already very curious to see which of them will be finished first. Or are there others that you still have hidden? Lol.

Hi Roberta,
