Stitching a Picture a Day

Last Month I was going to do Fat Mum Slim's picture a day but only ended up doing a picture here and there. This month has been a bit better even if the pics aren't all that great. 1. is L is for Late Night Stitching. I worked on my needle point. 2. Is I made this which is more I'm working on making my letter M from Nora Corbett. I bought the fabric Saturday so I got started. 3. is key so it's the Love Quilt Square I just signed up for and it's color key. Also, it's keeping up with the Theme-a-licious March Madness and stitching something different each day. I may keep this up but I've got most of the Love Quilt Square done today thanks to finishing up a Doctor Who DVD before I took it back to the library so I may just finish that off so I can send it in way before time. I may ask to do the other rocket in the series. The World of Cross-stitching has these as small patterns so I'm doing it on 11 count and using 3 and 2 threads instead of 14 count 2 and 1 threads. I have a little bit more of the background to stitch and the back stitching. I'll see what I feel like doing when I come home from work and the gym tomorrow. I need to remember that my hockey game starts right when I get off work so I can turn that on instead of Pandora while I work out. It's been a bit chilly and trying to snow but it was so warm the past few days the snow didn't stick so that made me a bit happy to drive. Hopefully it will warm up and I'll get to wear my cute shoes of doom on Wednesday. I'll have to take care of my toes first though :p Anyone else wanting warmer weather? Oh and if anyone is on instagram my name is melissa_ziggy. I've been uploading there for the photo a day so the pics look a little bit better there with a bit of filter.

The rocket will be a great square for a quilt. I have also stitched squares for charity quilts and sometimes use 11 ct to make the design bigger.

The rocket looks really cute :) And I can't wait to see more progress on M - it is going to be lovely :)
