Updates in my Life and Stitching

 I started this Kustom Korner Stitch a Long called Sunlit Irises around the end of March.  A new page comes out on the 15th of each month until the design is done.  There are 12 total pages but pages 10, 11, and 12 will come out together as they are not full pages.  Last weekend which was the first weekend of April I stitched in a Virtual Stitch In.  The photo on the left was before I started stitching for the weekend and the picture on the right was what I had accomplished.  It doesn't look like a lot but I did manage to get about 1000 stitches accomplished.  I am hoping to have page 1 finished this weekend.

Here is a picture of my new truck.  My van decided it didn't want to run anymore (transmission went out) and I had to get home last Friday on the back of a flatbed.    I really didn't want to have a vehicle payment but I didn't have much of a choice.  At least now I have something that is reliable and I won't be stuck alongside the road.

Here are three more squares for the baby blanket I am working on.  I really got to get busy stitching on this again as baby is due in about three weeks.  I now have 11 squares done - 13 more to go.  They look really cute but I sure hate stitching over 2.  That is why I had to take a break and started working on the  Sunlit Iris SAL. 

For those of you who follow my blog my niece loved her wedding sampler!   


  1. Very cute stitching! And I love the truck!

  2. Your stitching is beautiful! The blocks are adorable! Congrats on the truck

  3. Everything looks great Janet. I looked at your before and after and thought, "Wow, she got a lot done." But I didn't know just how far you got. I can't even do four hundred stitches in a day and I work in half stitches!! Great job, you! Keep it up and you'll have it done before you know it.

  4. Must be contagious - DH just got another truck, too! Lovely stitching!
