More Mill Hill kits!

Yup, I’ve been working on the Mill Hill kits all week. Except Saturday. I barely did any work Saturday (we’ll get to why later). So let’s start with the first finish of the past week: Mill Hill Harp, finished I have to admit, I didn’t really enjoy working on the harp all that much. I…

Christmas Ornament Frenzy

That’s right boils and ghouls. It’s the start of the Christmas Ornament frenzy! At least, it’s the start of me trying to stitch as many ornaments as I can in one month. Then I might go back to my normal, larger project stitching. Last week I finished TWO projects! Two! The first finish was the…

Cross stitch Haul and update

I have a cross stitch haul! A big one, too! A family member gave me $100 to spend on stitchy supplies, so I bought a bunch of things from 123stitch.com!  9 Mill Hill kits, 3 Sue Hillis patterns, and 1 pattern from Diane Arthurs. With shipping, it came to $95.88, so I’m going to spend…

Nevermore cross stitch project

Quoth the raven, Nevermore. You’ve seen it before. The Nevermore cross stitch pattern, and now here it is! Finally, after almost a month of hard work, I’ve finished stitching Nevermore. As you may know, it’s a pattern found in the 2017 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue. It’s a fairly small stitch count if you just…

Haunted Mansion Demon Wallpaper

Disney’s Haunted mansion has my all time favorite wallpaper. The Demon Wallpaper. Spooky faces glare at you from a purple background. It’s simple, black, white, and purple. You may think it’s a little creepy, as eyes stare at you from all directions. The whole thing is freaking adorable. As you know if you kept up…

Achievement Hunter stitching

Achievement Hunter. I know nothing about you. Except my own achievement hunter pursuits in the video games I play. Really though, I’ve never watched the youtube channel. However, I was asked to stitch the two versions of the logo for my little sister’s girlfriend, and so I started and finished the second piece (the first…

The Lonely Mountain cross stitch

The Lonely Mountain. Guarded by Smaug, chiefest of calamities. Yes, Smaug has returned for a few days in his cavern in The Lonely Mountain. I decided to bring out this great little piece that I started at the beginning of Stitch Maynia. With a slight adjustment, it went flying by! In fact, I actually finished…

Two finishes

That’s right ladies and gents. I have two finishes this week! In a surprise twist, I have two finishes of cross stitch items this week, and got some okay progress on another project. First finish is a commission piece (discussed last week) The first of the AH logos is done! The first of my two…

Commission Stitching

Let’s talk a little bit about commission stitching. I’ve done a bit of commission stitching before. Quiet recently, in fact. I usually only take pieces that are small, quick, and easy so I can knock them out and not feel bored with them for too long. I also only do commissions for people I trust…

Stitching myself out of a funk

I’ve said it before. I have depression. Sometimes it’s easy to start stitching myself out of a funk. Sometimes not. This time, surprisingly, I’m half-way out of the latest funk. The latest round of depression. Things haven’t been going well. There are personal issues I won’t talk about, but there’s my anxiety about upcoming things,…
