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…

Weekly Roundup #4

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one, I get five cents at no cost to you.   Firstly, sorry for not posting on Wednesday. I had no idea what to write about, so instead of posting something random and weird, I just didn’t post.   On to the favorites!   This week I’m…

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…

A little goes a long way

Okay, I admit I haven’t done much stitching this week. It’s been one of those ‘do as little as possible now to avoid burnout later’ kind of weeks. That said, I’ve done most of page one on Flitwick. It’s working up pretty fast so far. I’m a little surprised his hair took a little less…

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 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,…

Weekly Roundup #1

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one, I get five cents.   So begins a (hopefully) weekly round up of things I love.    First and foremost was last night’s episode of Supernatural! The Scooby Doo cross over had me in stitches from laughing so hard. The drawing was spot on. The…

Crafting with depression

I am a crafter. I have depression. The two mix a lot. In a way, they also don’t mix. I’ll give you an example. Two days ago, I started a new pattern. It’s something that would normally take me 4 hours at most to stitch up. It’s really quick and small but with this recent bad…
