Catching Up!!

First off, thank you everyone for the Birthday Wishes!! I really appreciate it and it means a lot!  I am doing better, finally!  Friday I did not stitch any, still sore, but I made up for the rest of the weekend staying up late and stitching most of the day.  My Ametrine still has not shown up, I am not happy at all since it was going to be shipped in two days a week and a half ago.  Anyway, I stitched only on Chinese Garden since I did not stitch as much as I planned on.  But, I am so happy with my progress!!

Here is my North Porthole - COMPLETED!!

My East Porthole also COMPLETED!!

Next up is my West Porthole - COMPLETED!!

Here is my start on my Spring Scene!  I had to catch up when I saw the baby Jessicas!!  I LOVE Baby Jessicas, they are my Favorite Stitch Ever!! I really love them, so I fell back in love with this design and have been stitching like mad the past couple of days trying to catch up.  I have the bridge taking shape, so I hope to finish this scene this weekend and then start on Herbularius, if my fabric shows up, geez.

And here is where I am right now.  I still need to catch up on: Part 1 the back stitching, Part 5 the South Porthole (which I have started) and the two frames for the scenes beside the South Porthole.  I also need to finish putting the delica beads on and use some batting to protect the fabric on the scrolls.
I hope to catch up on everyone's blog this week.  I try not to blog hop on the weekend and instead spending the whole weekend stitching.  I find I don't stitch as much if I go look at everyone's pictures.  The week nights are for blog hopping because I usually have to comment!!  I did miss my SAL for Chats, realizing that you post a picture before you stitch and then after.  Next month I will remember.  I have never been in one before so I will chalk it up to a learning experience!

Hope everyone has a terrific week!!  Happy Stitching!!

Glad you are felling better, and happy belated birthday - I was out of town & missed it! I hope your Ametrine shows up soon :)

CG is looking amazing - it's hard to fathom that you are behind on it at all! Keep going, you'll be ahead soon!! The North portal is my fave :)

Hubba hubba, Liss!!! I'm with you on the baby Jessicas. My fave part of Japanese Garden where the soft pink baby Jess in there. <3 <3 <3

Glad to hear you're feeling better, and yeah, I hear ya about weekend blog hopping. I don't do that either, and then I pay for it during the week cos there's so much to catch up on and so many comments to leave. :D
