A finished project! And a few updates

YES! On 3/10/16 I finished my Philipp Burger cross stitch! Here’s the picture: I like the way it turned out, except for those blasted lines that wont go way. Oh well. They really aren’t that visible in person. As for the other, much more epic-ly sized cross stitch? I’ve got a bit more done. I…

New Project and More Progress!

Hello everyone! I recently got in some more black thread (six skeins!) and stitched all day yesterday. I was out of commission on Saturday because of a serious, all freaking day and night long migraine, but hey, I’ve made some serious progress on my Philipp Burger cross stitch. As of this morning, it looks like…

I ran out of black… again…

I ran out of black thread again on the 29th. I don’t know when I’ll be getting more in, and I still have to order the two other colors I’m missing, so I’ve started a new project. In the mean time, here’s the Philipp project:   For the new project: I don’t have a picture…

Update 2/28/16 (I need better titles)

I finally got most of the thread I needed to finish this project, and to start my new one! Woo! I’m still missing two colors I need for this current project. As I’m writing this, I have about half of the black stitches done. It’s a long haul on this thing, and kinda boring now…

Project update 2/22/16

Okay, so I worked on that corset I mentioned in the previous post, and I have to say it was complete and utter failure. It failed so badly, I refused to even take a picture of it. I’m thinking I may need to just purchase a pattern for this thing. Oh well.   In better…

Current Projects 2/14/2016

Current Project 2/8/16

What am I working on right now? An attempt at a photo-realistic cross stitch image of the Deutchrock band Frei.Wild‘s lead singer Philipp Burger. This is a first for me on a few levels. 1) This is the first time I’ve tried to recreate a real person’s face. 2) My first time using a grid on…

Finished Cross Stitch Projects

Let’s introduce ourselves

Well, at least let me introduce myself. My name is Amber, and I have a crafting obsession. I enjoy knitting, crocheting, spinning, tatting, sewing, and cross stitch. Currently most of my work is cross stitch, but I love doing other crafts as well. My aim to update this blog at least once a week with pictures…
