New Coaster almost done..

Hi all
Just keeping in touch, letting you know what is happening with me and my stitching..
Well I am over the flu symptoms thank goodness, but I still have the headaches..oh well that's not new... I am a migraine sufferer *sigh*..
Too much stress in life just provokes them and I am still struggling to find a job!

Ok enough of that, here is the update on my coasters (remember there are 4 in total).
I just need a few stitches: on the side, the hook, some backstitching.. and then the assembly.. Should finish it today.. I will take a quick break from Witchy Poo on today's "Fri SAT" at Let's Stitch..
Below in last weeks update you will see the Witchy Poo as it was left so I won't post the pic again...
Well, it's 6pm gotta hop over to Let's Stitch and check in...Thanks for stopping by..
Leave your comments remember they are like footprints of where you have been..
plus I love it and could use the encouragement :)

Updates on my 3 currant WIPs


Took some time between chores and life altering decisions to do a little stitching and managed to finish Coaster number 2 "Snowman"..
He was easy but hard since I should have really checked out the size was just a little too big for the actual circle in the least that what I feel since I had to do a little squeezing here and a little fiddling there to get it to fit after my name and year, but I did it. Not to my wishes but pretty... I am satisfied.. lol no choice!
Started the third and after checking the size fit..I have made the first is an ornament and I will post pictures later..

Witchy POO

I am still working on "Witchy Poo" and she is progressing nicely...
The actual, name of the sampler is "Gathering for a Spell" and it contains 5 witches.. definitely not one that I will finish this year (shucks) but I will give it my best shot to see if I can at least get half way by xmas.
I needed some special Kreinik threads but I could not find them locally so I am just omitting them.. they are the "glow in the dark" colors and they won't take away much to the finished piece...(I am convincing my self slowly)


No significant progress there but a few stitches once in awhile..(alas poor Indian lass)...

Well that's it for now...stop by and say hello by leaving your comments they are always appreciated...and are like footprints of where we have been...
