YOP Week #47

Whoa Nellie!  Have I missed several weeks?  And is there really only 3 weeks left...I must have miscounted because that does not figure out to be July 1st.  Someone please help me...have I been 'off' all year and no one has said anything?
Anyway, I'm here and this is the last day of............
for me anyway.

  WIPs (works in progress):
1)  I chose to start 19 new projects as it is my first year of Stitch Maynia.  You can go look at my posts but really there's not much to see when one is just starting a cross stitch project.  Here is my last one for today.............
2) I have worked on sock #2 a bit but then Maynia took over.........I'm almost done with the heel flap.......
3)  I almost found time for sewing but first I had to cut and pin and by that time I had other things I had to do.....hopefully I'll make progress this week especially now that the Maynia crunch is over with for a bit.   This is the lining for the Frida Kahlo basket I crocheted for my daughter's birthday....last year....hopefully I can finish it for her birthday this year!
 Plus, I had to make more hand pies to use up the last 3 apples..............
Acquisitions:  None that you can see but I ordered them for my Mother's Day gift and they should be here this week!  I'm so excited and of course it is all crafty stuff!

  1. is week 47 and there are 5 weeks left in YOP. I got my counting off some time back too but finally figured out where I went wrong.

    With all your XS I am surprised you found time for anything else. How do you fit it all in per day? Does Arkansas have more hours in their days? LOL

    I have been keeping you on my prayers with all the bad weather in the area. My Sister in law lives and east TX and had a huge pack fall on her house from all the wind and rain. Hopefully you are safe as are your fur babies.

  2. Those hand pies look great! I hardly ever make a pie because we would have to eat it all! Your projects are all coming along! :)

  3. Mmmm Apple pie 🥧 yum! I didn’t notice you were off on your week count until you just pointed it out. Hopeless. I love your xs projects so far, so I’m sure I’ll love these new ones too.

  4. Love all your sewing projects and you keep quite a list to work on! The hand pies look yummy. I make fried pies...not as healthy though! lol Enjoy your week!

  5. I got lost just reading your lists! How do you keep it all straight? I am impressed by your finishes too. Every year I say I'm going to keep track of everything I finish and I do great...for about 3 weeks and then I forget to write them down.
    The pies look yummy too.

  6. You go girl. Maynia indeed!! I am gonna check out the pattern for that crocheted bag.

    1. It's by Crafternoon Treats from several years ago but it was a free pattern. If you need more info just let me know.

  7. I hope the weather has treated you well.
    But oh my giddy aunts - 19 new projects! I don't now how you fit it all in. From what I can see they all look great as well.

  8. I am thankful for this blog to gave me much knowledge regarding my area of work. I also want to make some addition on this platform which must be in knowledge of people who really in need. Thanks.
