2018 in review

As the year draws to a close, and I set about my ‘2018 in review’, I can’t help but marvel at my stitching progress. My goal this year was 50 finishes. Yes, 50. More than double last year’s goal of 20. I knew a lot of my finishes would be small, but I didn’t realize…

New year, new work

New year, new work people! Well . . . kind of. I’ve been slowly working on a project from last year this month. Witch Board by Cottage Garden Samplings has been on my to-do list since early last year. I’m mostly finished, I just have to do the border. That’s the problem though. I don’t…

Hamster on a Toy Deer

That’s right boils and ghouls! I finished Maria Brovko’s Hamster on a Toy Deer! Roll that magnificent stitchy goodness of a cute little Hamster on a toy deer! It took a while. I’ll admit that. I started it back in October, and didn’t work on it consistently until just a couple weeks ago. So let’s…

Super short

This week’s update is super short. I had to return the new laptop, as it was crapping out. I even got an exchange on it, and that one was worse! So it’s back to the old one for me. I did a small amount of stitching. Slightly more than what’s shown in the picture, but…

Reaching 50 finishes

That’s right! This week’s post is about reaching 50 finishes! In a magical twist I managed to hit 50 finishes in October! But first: a side note. I apologize for not posting last week. I was having a bit of a mini mental health crisis and felt it was necessary to take a few days…

A finished Dragon

This week we have a finished Dragon! Yes, that’s right! I have a finished Dragon! I was able to finish the ‘never too old’ pattern! It’s a cute green dragon with gold spots, holding a blue teddy bear. I made it blue because I could lol. Anyways, the black bits of its wings and stomach…

Kris Mouse

This week’s top story: Kris Mouse Yesterday I started and finished Mill Hill’s Kris Mouse kit. It’s super small and easy. There’s a lot of beads, but not so many as to be overwhelming. Here’s what it looks like finished: I don’t think I’ve had a finish from Mill Hill quiet this fast before. There…

The problem with Pinterest

There’s a problem with Pinterest that I wasn’t aware of before. It’s me again. I’m back much sooner than expected. Today I’m going to talk to you about a serious problem I wasn’t aware of before, and that you may not be aware of yourself. The problem with Pinterest is one that I feel needs…
