Haunted Mansion Demon Wallpaper

Disney’s Haunted mansion has my all time favorite wallpaper. The Demon Wallpaper. Spooky faces glare at you from a purple background. It’s simple, black, white, and purple. You may think it’s a little creepy, as eyes stare at you from all directions. The whole thing is freaking adorable. As you know if you kept up…

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…

How did that happen?

I ran out of a specific color (DMC 798). How? I could have sworn I had a lot of that one. Sadly, the person I used to buy my DMC from online no longer sells them. So now I have to see if my local Walmart has this color, or find out when someone’s going…

Will this page ever end?!

It feels like this page keeps going on and on! However, I WILL finish this darned page by the end of the month. Here’s this weeks’ photo: Also, I’ve just finished the skein of pink yarn for the blanket. It’s not yet the 6 feet that I want, but hey, it’s only one strip and…

Decent progress, and some crochet!

I’ve done a fair amount of stitching this week. Maybe not as much as I should like, but decent none the less.   As promised, here’s a picture of the crochet blanket I’m working on. There really isn’t much to show, though. It’s only one strip out of many that I need to make, and…

Yay! A few more colors are done!

I got a few more colors stitched in, but progress is a bit slower now, due to things happening at home that I have no control over. But, I did finish a good chunk of stitches, so here’s the picture of that: I’ve also discovered I have waaaaaay too much yarn, and all in varying…

A finished item, more progress, and . . . kittens?

Okay, first thing first. Cross stitch. I did a fair amount considering the upheaval. Here’s the picture:   If I’ve planned this correctly, (and nothing major happens) I should be done with this page before the end of the month. Second: That knitting project I finished last week:    I’m blocking it as I type….

Progress! A finished item, and a new one!

Firstly, the cross stitch. I didn’t get as much done as I should like this past week, but I did get a bit done. Here’s the picture: Secondly, the Hemlock Ring blanket. I got a bit bored with it, and realized I wouldn’t have enough of this yarn to get it too far anyways, so…

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…
