Anna is finished!

Anna is finished! At long long last, Anna is finished. On October 4th (yes, a full month after I started her) I finally finished stitching Anna! I even laced her onto a backing. I still have to find a frame that fits and looks good with her, but she’s finally finished! Here’s the end result: …

Stitch Maynia week one

In the first week of Stitch Maynia, I stitched for me . . . Five shiny things!  Stitch Maynia heralds the scramble to start (or work on) a bunch of projects. Some people use Stitch Maynia to just work on one project instead of their normal rotation. Whatever works for each person. This year 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…

Can I get this finished today?

I’ve been working on Evening in The Shire so much this week that I really only have a few hours’ worth of work left on it. The bottom right corner is the only area that needs back stitching now, and I’m excited to finish it. I’m aiming to get it done before tonight’s new episode…

Witchy Wall Hanging and an adorable vampire

I finished the Apothecary sign! I used some old cotton yarn to braid a border and hanger, then sewed it on. All I need to do is hang it up! I know, I know! Not that easy to read on camera, but it’s lovely in person! It says: ‘itchy Woman Apothecary Magic Spells Hexes Potions…

A little late but so worth it.

Why is this post a little later in the day? Why is it worth the wait? Because . . .   I FINISHED FIREFLY FAIRIES!!!!!!     That’s really all I have for this week, but there’s a new pattern up on my free patterns page, and I’ll be posting a new listing in my…

So much metallic!

Hey guys! Happy New Year!    With so many projects to work on this year, I’ve started one new small one, but I’ve mostly been working on Firefly Fairies. There’s so much metallic in it! I’m finally at the bottom of Merryweather’s dress and I swear it’s half metallic thread lol. Here’s the picture: I…

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…
