Thankfully I have been busy because this certainly keeps up on me.
I have been keeping up on my temperature tree by Stitchin Mommy. I’m a little disappointed that with this continued hot weather, it isn’t going to be symmetrical, but oh well, it’s still pretty!
I have also been moving ahead on my project for my dad. I keep thinking I’m almost done because I only have two words left, but then I remember about the skull and cross bones and the ship and the huge border!
I did finish something too! I tried my first Mill Hill kit and it certainly won’t be my last! I know it took me about a week, but obviously I didn’t get to work on it every day. My mom asked me how many hours it took me and I have no idea. I have one more kit so I will keep track of hours with that one. They make a fantastic gift though as they don’t take long. This one is for my friend who plans to buy a hobby farm after her retirement in June.
I will need to bring home some felt from school to fully finish it.
Finally, my mom and I are starting a SAL! Earlier this year I had done a hello summer stitched piece for her and we have bought a hello fall piece to stitch now. She is doing it on 16 count for my door and I am doing it on 32 count for her door. I’m a little worried about her arthritis, but if she finds it uncomfortable, I will just do both:)
I unfortunately don’t have the cover picture for it, and won’t even bother with a picture this time as all I’ve done so far is one row of thirty red stitches- so not exciting!🤣
Of course I’ve also been doing my knitting too. It’s so difficult to balance the two hobbies that I enjoy so much along with my reading habit! I really need to retire so I have time for all of my hobbies!
Please make sure you check out all the other amazing projects!

I love the tree. Very pretty!
Thank you! I love it more than I was expecting to:)
You have multiple cross stitch projects going now, it is quite addictive!🤣 How fun to do a project with your mom.
I don’t really love having the multiple and can’t wait to be done the daily one!
Love the barn project!
Thank you! I loved it too and can’t wait to do more of them!
loving the tree project ^^
Thank you! I like how it looks but don’t love the daily commitment
I think your tree is perfect just the way it is 🙂
Thank you! It’s neat to see how the weather changes slowly. I don’t love having to remember to check the temperature each day
I love the tree AJ. It’s so pretty. Isn’t it wonderful to have so many hobbies? I know so many people that retire and just sit in front of the TV. Good luck with your SAL with your mom :0)
Oh I absolutely can’t wait to retire because I have so many things to keep me busy and need more time for them! I am loving stitching along with my mom!
I love the tree – and I don’t know many that are totally symmetrical!
I’m sure not! It’s just my type A personality coming throigh
Lots of wonderful things to comment on and I for one think the assymetrical makes it far more interesting. The mill hill project looks lovely, I can’t say I’ve done any of their kits but their beads are my go to and I’ve got quite the knack at securing them now (granted you have a bead needle)
I absolutely loved the mill hill kit and will be doing more for presents!
That Mill Hill kit is so adorable, I need to look at those for a project. The tree is going toe beautiful 🙂
I loved the mill hill kit and am thinking I should just do a few throughout the year so I always have them around for presents
I love a little Mill Hill kit — small and compact and they finish up so lovely! (I do a lot of their Halloween ornaments). And that temperature tree is fantastic.
I loved the mill hill too! I have one more to do right now, but definitely plan to get busy and order more!
The tree looks beautiful ❤️
I’ll have to look up Mill Hill – not familiar. One of my daughters use to cross stitch and it would be fun to share a project like this. I’ll have to wait till she retires 🙂
It is great to share this with my mom and I’m not retired and it still works:)
