Tammy for all season blog hop update - day 6

Dear hoppers, I am extremely sorry for not having a tammy bag today to share with you. Its been really difficult find time to sew/quilt, between full-time job and a toddler who gets sick so often during the winter months. I know I shouldn't be giving any excuses but this is the truth :(.

I would like to thank you our wonderful cheer leader Mary from I Piece 2-Mary for this hop and Mdm Samm for hosting these wonderful blog hops.

I also wanted to thank Brooke Nolan and Cori Blunt for creating wonderful patterns for the hop.


Today's schedule.

  6. You will finish, I am sure. Sometimes life happens. Thanks for the giveaway. What a sweet thing for you to do. There have been lots of struggles with this hop. It's so nice to see everyone step out of their comfort zone and try something new. I visited them all so far and have learned something at every stop.

  7. It IS difficult to work and care for a toddler! I hope you find time to relax and be calm. Stitching can help you do that if you can find time to stitch! Hang in there! Some day you will miss these times with your little one, despite how tired you may be today! :)

  11. Don't feel guilty! Life got in the way, it happens. Hopefully you have now seen the last of those nasty winter illnesses and you will get some time to enjoy stitching and sewing! And how sweet to give a shout out to all the other hoppers!

  13. Ahh, life can throw a curve ball but hopefully you can get back on track. Thanks for giving a shout out to the other hoppers. Hope your little one gets better sooner.

  14. Hi, I know how you feel. I am about 1/2 way through. I thought I had plenty of time. Don't feel too bad. My work/job got in the way too but I do not have a toddler so I know you had even more limited time. Maybe we can both share finished projects in the near future!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you for letting us know. Hope you will be able to finish it in the future.

  16. They call Cross Stitching Slow stitching for a reason. It takes time and concentration. Not something that always works out while we deal with life and it's ups and downs. Take your time and enjoy the rest of the experience. I have visited all of the other participants and left notes.

  17. Looking forward to seeing your Vintage Tammy when you finish. I have really been enjoying all the stops in this hop. Thanks for sharing ... {{{hugs and stitches}}} ... :) Pat

  20. Such beautiful cross-stitching on these bags. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hopefully, things will settle down and you can finish your bag. Life happens, especially with a toddler.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am sorry that life has been so hectic. I pray that your toddler is healing and life is not so chaotic. I hope that you will be able to make your Tammy bag and pinny as time passes. I'm glad that you know your limitations and didn't rush to make something with which you would not be happy. It's a blessing to encourage the others.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Life sure can be rather hectic with little ones,especially when they are sick! You will find the time to get to it and when you do it will be beautiful.

    I have been around to see all the other stitchers and their Tammy's in various stages,some finished some not,but all beautiful!

  24. You seem to be having lots of company - life has been throwing curve balls at nearly everyone during this hop. I have visited everyone today; I love the hops!

  25. Hi Malini! Your post made me smile, because I can relate to it so much. I have some quilting and cross stitch projects that I have been working on for years, as I try to find the time. I admire you for putting your hat in the ring though! I enjoyed visiting the other bloggers that you listed, and made comments. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  45. I really hope your get to finish your bag. Winter is tough enough, but when you have a sick little one, it makes it even worse.

    I left a comment on the link mentioned above and really enjoyed seeing the photos of the creative work!

  46. I think that is why I don't join into these projects...especially having to link up! The pressure! the pressure! I find that life gets in the way. Thanks for the lovely hop! I enjoyed visiting everyone! I'm not quite brave enough to do cross stitch and then the bag! So adorable! Maybe one day!

  50. I loved seeing all the other bags- I commented on them all. Here's to hoping you can find time to finish yours soon!

  51. I'm working on catching up on the hop and am enjoying everyone's creations. I think we can all understand how hard it is when the little ones are sick.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have enjoyed everyone's efforts on this hop, I know it has been a challenge for many...me included. Hope you do get yours finished, I am sure it will be a beauty.

  54. I'm not sure where my first comment went so I will try again...

    I call them life's 'little hiccups' when things don't work out the way we want them too. Thanks for posting and I will look forward to seeing your Tammy bag when you get a chance to finish it. Hope your wee one is feeling better!! Thanks for the chance to play with Jeni Baker's fabrics. Happy stitching, Pauline

  55. This seemed like a pretty challenging hop to finish for many participants. I've been following the hop but didn't participate. With both cross stitch plus the purse it would seem to be a bit of a time consuming project. That being said I hope you get to share some of your work in progress on your Tammy soon and feel better this winter, I've started taking 2 Airborne a day to try and top my constant cold I've had since late November!

  56. Life happens to the best of us. Hope your baby feels better. I love checking out the hops and leave comments at them all. Take care and hugs.

  57. So sorry that your little one has been sick Malini. I hope everyone returns to healthy and happy soon!

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a generous substitution. While I'm sorry real life intruded, as it does, rushing to finish would have added stress to what is supposed to be a fun diversion. I'm sure it will be lovely when the time is right. On visiting the other blogs, I found most had similar problems with either partial or alternative finishes. It is a rather large boat! Best of luck in the new year. Notwendy gmail

  59. Hi, Malini - That's just the way some things go. Life happens. I always love seeing your creations and hope you can get back to it soon. Hopped around to the other bloggers for your day - this one was a huge challenge, but I still love seeing everyone's efforts.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hope you're able to finish soon!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I checked out the other bloggers and left comments. Seems that several others had trouble finishing too. That's part of the reason I don't do cross stitch anymore -- it just takes so long!

Would love hearing from you...
