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…

Ariel is finished

Ariel is finished! And no just finished, but FFO’d! That’s right. The day after I posted that the beads STILL hadn’t shown up, they arrived and I was able to fully finish Ariel. I then laced her up, and popped her in a fancy frame I got on sale at…

Still no beads

Still no beads. None. They haven’t shown up. So Ariel is completely off the table for now. I did however finish Witch Board on Thursday! I even laced it. I just have to get around to attaching a hanger. Here’s what it looks like: With still no beads showing up…

Missing Beads

Some missing beads have prevented me from finishing Ariel. Honestly, it’s really annoying. I ordered some new beads because I ran out and still needed a lot of them so I could finish the bottom of Ariel’s dress. They were supposed to be here already but are so far still…

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…

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…

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…

A finish and a half

I have a finish and a half! This will be a fairly short post, but I do have a finish and a half to show you. First: the finish. Santa and Rudolph from Mill Hill As for the ‘half’ of that finish and a half: Hamster on a toy deer…
