Only two Christmas finishes

I only have two Christmas finishes to show you this week. Ugh. It’s been a long couple of weeks. I was incredibly, painfully, sick for a couple days and that really threw me off. I couldn’t even post an update! I did, however, manage to take my time with the Christmas Time pattern, and finished…

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: I have to admit, I didn’t really enjoy working on the harp all that much. I think it turned out…

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…

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…

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…

The Last Week of Maynia

This is it folks. The last week of Maynia for me. In a long 17 day journey I found I still don’t stitch as quickly as I used to lol. But that’s okay. It’s the last week of Maynia. Anything goes! The last week of Maynia saw some rather small starts, and a surprising amount…

This week in starts

A new week in starts wraps up as Stitch Maynia draws to a close. And what a week in starts it is! We also have a fair amount of finishes, if you can believe it. We have a total of 7 new starts this week, with 3 new finishes which brings our total of finishes…

Maynia is almost upon us!

That’s right, Maynia is almost here, and so I’m going to share my plans. Sorry for not posting this last week, Emma!   This year I’m starting 18 new projects in May. Most of them are nice and small, and should only take 3 days at most to stitch. We’ll see how that goes.  …

Smells like an impending finish.

That’s right! I’m finally almost finished with Flitwick! It really hasn’t taken that long (I did one whole page yesterday) but I kept not working on it. At least now I’m about a few hours’ work away from finishing the main stitching. I’ve been thinking about adding some embroidered and backstitched pine needle effects to…

A slight departure in theme

I’ve had a slight departure in stitching theme recently. It’s kinda ‘love’ themed. And it has flowers. And hearts. Although if you know me, you can see why I wanted to do this one. I created a pattern involving the second verse of Annabel Lee from Edgar Allan Poe. It’s only 3.5 x 4 inches,…
