Frosty Snowflake update

I worked away on Frosty Snowflake but didn't finish.  Here is where I left off after January 2nd:

And after this rotation he looks like this:

Here's another look at a picture of the finished piece:

I really don't have a lot more to go.  It is very tempting to stay on this piece, but I will move on. 

That means I'll be working on my Day 3 start Fall Owl.  This is a picture of the finished piece:

I'm not planning to stitch the year.  Hopefully I can get this one finished in this rotation cycle.

Update on The Guardian and Back to Day 2 Start

Thank you so much for your kind comments about my health.  I'm doing ok right now.  It's so nice to have so many visitors and I'm trying to visit everyone.  Thank you so much for encouraging me.

I have left The Guardian and am back to stitching on my Day 2 start. 

Here is where I left off on The Guardian:

It's a slow go with the blended needles and the color changes.  But I think the end result will be stunning.  I'm feeling more comfortable with the pattern now so that's a plus.

And my Day 2 start was Frosty Snowflake. Here's what the completed project looks like.  I'll be stitching on this for the next two weeks.  We'll see how far I can get!

Test Results

Just wanted to let you guys know my test results came back pre-cancerous.  So it was caught early enough.  The doctor will keep a check on me to make sure I stay ok.  That was such a relief.  I just wanted you all to know that I'm ok.

Joy Banner Finished

First let me say thank you for your response about my rotation plan.  I have to admit I'm already tempted to slide the owls or the tapestry pillow in.  Oh well, they will come up soon enough.

Second, surprise!  I'm not sure who is more surprised, me or you, but I have a finish!!!!  This is my first finish for 2016.  So 1 down 14 more to go.

Here's a picture:

The plan is to pick back up on the Guardian until the two weeks are finished.

The Guardian Update

So much for working on this for two weeks.  The first week I was able to stitch some, but the second week was a bust.

Here is where I left off:

As you can see not much progress.

Last week was spent with medical issues.  I'm feeling better now.  And I've completed testing.  I'm just waiting for some lab results to put this whole thing behind me.  Hopefully everything is fixed now. 

So I mentioned that I had a rotation plan that I was thinking about.  This is the plan.  For the next two weeks I will work on my Jan. 1 start.  This one will not take the entire two weeks.  When I finish I will post and for the rest of that two weeks I will work on The Guardian.  Does that sound like a good plan?  Some of my starts will be finished in the two weeks but others will not.  And with this plan I can spend the "extra" time on The Guardian.  Please let me know what you think about the plan.
