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…

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…

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.  …

Weekly Roundup #5

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one, I get five cents, at no cost to you. This week, I found something a little unusual for me. A sewing pattern! Just look at it, and you’ll see why it’s at the top of this week’s favorites list: It’s a sewing pattern for a Maleficent…

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…

Paint, and covered in glitter

Firstly, the small update about the cross stitching. I really haven’t done much this week. I know, I know! I’m falling behind schedule!  At least Flitwick is almost half done. Here’s what I’m working on for it now: Lately, though, I have been working on my clay creations. If you didn’t read the weekly roundup from…

Weekly Roundup #2

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one, I get five cents.   First and foremost I am loving a new (to me) book.  Monster High novel #2, The Ghoul Next Door by Lisi Harrison. You’ll need to read the first book before picking up this one, if you haven’t already, but I’m just…

A year in finishes

Another year… gone. It may not have been the greatest year ever, but it saw 30 finishes. Yes, 30! I finished one more just two days ago. In honor of all these finishes, I thought I’d share a picture of almost every item, in order. Let’s start with January:   I’m still not all that…

An FFO, a new start, and the never ending fairy.

Firstly, I FFO’d Garfield as a little pillow! (and it’s freaking adorable) Second, I started a new project. Poison from Just Cross Stitch Halloween. I started it yesterday, actually, so there isn’t much here: Third, and last, I did a decent amount on Merryweather. I feel like progress on her is so slow because all I…

And now for another round of backstitching

That’s right! I’ve finished all the cross stitching on Garfield, and only the top layer of backstitching is left! I’m thinking of turning this one into a pillow. What do you guys think? Would it make a good small pillow?   In other stitchy progress, I worked on Merryweather a bit more. Progress is picking up…
