Been busy....

Welł hello there!!

I have been busy going through my bucket of doooooo!!

With all this extra time on my hands I have been productive... 

Remember this?

Only the bottom corner to finish....

I started on it straight after making my last post...

And look....

All finished....

I am so thrilled it's finished, it's been in the bucket of doooooo forever...go me!!

And now look, I also started back with this one....

The black outline work goes on and on.... And on!! But I have managed to do a fair bit..

It's not quite done... Still a little more to do. But good progress :)

So that was the stitching.

Just a little note... If you follow me or are friends with me on Facebook..... You will not find me on there anymore.  I deactivated my account today after much thought.  

If your wondering why I have chosen to leave Facebook it's just that it's become too stressful.  I loved the interaction of friends and groups, but I seemed to 'live' on there.  There is more to life than Facebook, so I decided to leave! I know there are lots of you that use Facebook, you all know how consuming it can be! So all I will be doing is updating my blog and stitching! Don't worry I have no plans to deactivate my blog! You all cannot get rid of me that easy! 

I popped around a few blogs and I have not seen any Christmas trees! Unless you all snook a post in and I missed it! I would love to see all your Christmas trees.... Have you done a post about it? Post a link I will go see! Thank you :)

Thank you for popping in :)

Happy smiles to you all :)


  1. Hi, you should finish those dolphins they look so lovely and would be great if framed. I know how it is when you are feeling poorly so try and feel better. We are all praying for you to regain your good health. Glad hubby is okay. big hugs

    1. Yes indeed! The dolphin one is finished....see above picture! All done and I am thrilled :)
      Smiles :)

  2. What fabulous stitching, Jacquie! Keep up the great creative work - well wishes to you to feel better. P.S. DON'T STOP YOUR BLOG - I understand the Facebook thing. I'm on it, but not many people love your blog - you always brighten my day.

  3. I love the sweet dolphins so much..super sweet stitching...
    I hope you feel better soon my dear.
    Sending you big hugs x

  4. Love your finish! You are so right about Facebook. My dd will not allow me to get a Pinterest account as she says I would live on the computer. She is so right! Keep posting on the blog. No post of my tree yet, but maybe later this week.

  5. THAT is the exact reason I have never done FB. Good for you Jacquie. I do just the blog, and feel that is PLENTY. Ocean Friends is fantastic!

  6. I agree that Facebook can take over your life! You made a good decision for yourself. Your stitching is beautiful. I admire you for taking on big projects.

  7. Well done on the bucket of dooo progress!!!! Love the dolphins and well done too with that never ending black edging!!! The bucket will be empty soon they way you are going!!!lol!!

  8. Merry Christmas Jaquie: I love your progress, its always nice to go back to our baskets with UFO's I have started to think about taking out the basket and get going on my UFO's.
    I will post a picture of my tree tomorrow, it is small only because Mike asked me to only put up one and make it small, next year it will be bigger.

    Merry Christmas

  9. Woohoo great job! They look great! I didn't post my tree yet lol I honestly just forgot and we put it up quite a bit later. I'm doing another post before Christmas though so I'll put it up on there.

  10. A big YAY for the Dolphins' Happy Dance! It looks lovely on that fabric.

    I'm sure we will see the same amazing progress on the Egyptian piece too.

  11. Wonderful finish! The Dolphins are fabulous, and the Egyptian is looking great.
    Sending best wishes that you feel better:)

  12. I must have missed the bucket of doooo! But I like what has come out of it. A finish already and another one on the way. Well done!
    Here's hoping you all have a wonderful Christmas and that 2016 is a much better year for you than 2015 has been.

  13. The Dolphins look fabulous, I have a friend who has it famed on her bathroom wall.
    Another friend stitched the King Tut too.... how strange.
    Sending you a(hug) x

  14. So much stitching progress, Jacquie. That dolphin piece is such a beauty and yeah, you finished it. All the backstitching on the Egyptian piece will certainly take a while but you will get there.
    I have a blog only and have never been on FB - and I don't have the impression that I miss something. More time on the computer would mean less stitching time, so no FB for me. At the moment at least.

  15. Your projects look lovely so colourful . you have stitched up some wonderful colours .
    Merry Christmas to you and yes I have a tree on my post.

  16. Wonderful stitching progress and finish! Merry Christmas to you and your family!!


How wonderful that you have popped in to visit me.
Thank You so much for taking time to leave a comment.
Smiles :)
