I’ve done quiet a bit in the last week. I finished Evening in The Shire on Sunday, I started a new pattern, finished it, and started yet another project. I even came up with a few new patterns. But let’s start from the top. Evening in The Shire:
I love it. It’s simple yet complex. It’s mostly backstitch, but all detail. Maria Brovko, you are my new favorite designer!
I then started (and finished) a new project: Boo A Latte, which I finished as a Christmas ornament:
After that, I started Witch Board. Now, I love the pattern. I love how it’s turning out, but dear lord, starting the border is proving to be a long process for me. I think this may turn into one of those projects where I work on it a few times a week, but it’s not really my focus piece. Anyways, here’s what I have:
That’s all for my stitching, but I still have big news. I’ve been sitting on this for a couple months now, but I think it’s finally time to share. I’m putting together patterns for a Harry Potter-themed book. It’s not the typical book either. Oh no. It’s a book you need to stitch and put together yourself! It’s styled like a notebook, with class notes, the class schedule (you’ve seen two of those designs so far!) and drawings and doodles, just like my notebooks from my school days. Here are a couple page previews:
I’ve also decided I’m going to buy my domain. It won’t be ‘mycraftingobsessionblog’ but Witchy Woman instead, to better go with my shop. It will still have blog posts and free patterns, but hopefully I’ll be able to use it to sell some of my patterns off etsy. I’m crossing my fingers that I can get it done within the next month or two!
Speaking of free patterns. . . Today’s pattern is a simple witch hat
And today’s etsy pattern is another Golden Girls quote
Do you have any suggestions or requests for patterns? Let me know and I’d be happy to try!
That’s all for now. Until next time, Happy Stitching!
