Lots and none at all

O hai!  It's TUSAL Time!  Here's where we stand as of last night:

Cat Inserted For Scale
That sad little pile is all I've collected in the past month.  The thing is, I've actually done quite a lot of stitching.  I just seem to have ends long enough to continue stitching with most of the time so they get wound back on the bobbins.
The projects contributing to that sad little pile:

Shenandoah Spring - DebBee's Designs
Where the squares stop is where my skein of DMC604 ran out.  The brand new, just for this project and no other skein.  Since these stitches used 3 plies, that means there's 16+ yards of pink in those squares.  I won't lie--I eagerly anticipate the end of the DMC604 squares.

Spring Alphabet - Lizzie*Kate
This one is coming along nicely.  I'm still loving the bright colors!  I was mistaken last time in that I have changed one of the colors.  I am stitching this in the DMC substitutions and the two greens were too close for my liking.  So I changed the lighter one to another color that looked (to me) more like the one in the picture.

Cross Stitch Clock - The World of Cross Stitching #177
Blue!  That blue circle is where the clock bits go when this is finished.

Alphabet Blocks - Carriage House Samplings
1 over 1 on 28 ct Tan Linen
Yep, you read that right--1 over 1 on 28 ct.  This is the smallest count I can stitch without magnification.  Still need a hella bright light to do it.  I'm stitching it in the DMC colors, but I'm totally copying the cover model and using WDW Whiskey for the backgrounds of the words.

I'm still dithering over whether or not to restart America Land That I Love.  I did purchase a new piece of fabric for it.  But I haven't taken the old one off the scroll rods yet.  So...I dunno.
