Just a Few Things

Hello again, and I know its been a while since I had an update. That is because I am busily working on from long term projects from my goal list that don't show progress very quickly. Mostly on The Castle, in which I have primarily filled in the far right side of the rock pile. Honestly while I love the looks of this project, it is SO SLOW due to blended threads, quarter stitches, and a hard to read pattern. I can't wait to move on to something else. Although I am devoted to getting this done by Spring, I might have to swap it out for something less stressful for a couple weeks. Maybe my Princess and the Dragon, or Imagination Unleashed.

 I did manage to finish off this scarf and hat set a couple weeks ago, getting that project off my UFO list. I've also started stashing yarn and hooks at work, for those days when I remember to bring my lunch, so there are more hats and scarves coming in the near future.


The temperature blanket is a no-go. I've finished a weeks worth of motifs but I just don't like it. I'm setting that project aside and instead focusing on finishing my rainbow C2C queen size, which I have finally decided is tall enough and am now working on filling in the other half. 

Cleaning my sewing room is coming along slowly but surely. The closet has these awful overlapping door, so you can only get into one half of the closet at time. I've hated them since we moved in almost five years ago. I've acquired a curtain rod and some sheer curtains, purple of course, to replace the doors with and am hoping to get them hung up sometime this week.

Happy stitching in the upcoming week! Linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday@Kathy's Quilts


  1. The Castle looks awesome! Well worth sticking with it. I'm cheering you on for a Spring finish.
    Love the C2C blanket, the colours are so pretty.

  2. Awesome progress on the castle Kaelyn. Love your hat and scarf. The blanket looks great and I love the color.


  3. Wow that's a seriously amazing cross stitch.

  4. The Castle is looking beautiful. I can't imagine having to do quarter stitches. The hat and scarf are in my favorite color. Good luck with cleaning the closet and hanging the curtains.

  5. The castle is great! Onward for a spring finish!

  6. You are certainly working on a lot of beautiful projects! Such a talented lady! “The Castle” is absolutely stunning! I’ve made a star blanket, too, though I forgot how many points it had.
