The Lonely Mountain cross stitch

The Lonely Mountain. Guarded by Smaug, chiefest of calamities. Yes, Smaug has returned for a few days in his cavern in The Lonely Mountain. I decided to bring out this great little piece that I started at the beginning of Stitch Maynia. With a slight adjustment, it went flying by! In fact, I actually finished…

This needs to be said

WARNING: I’m about to talk a bit about depression and expectations I had in life. If you don’t wish to read it, scroll down until you see two pictures of cats.   I thought about not writing this part of the post. For four days now, I’ve struggled with what to say, if anything at…

Lots to do, lots to do

I’ve done quiet a bit in the last week. I finished Evening in The Shire on Sunday, I started a new pattern, finished it, and started yet another project. I even came up with a few new patterns. But let’s start from the top. Evening in The Shire: I love it. It’s simple yet complex. It’s…

A whole lot to show you!

First, I finished Tigerlily on Sunday: I then started a pattern called Evening in the Shire, and promptly messed up so badly I needed to start over. Here’s what I have now: (pro tip. don’t start with the backstitching) Yesterday I decided I wanted a quick finish, so I stitched up this week’s Etsy pattern:…

What’s this? Something new?

That’s right! I did a new craft this week! I bought a cheap diamond painting kit from China to see if I’d like the craft, and even though it didn’t turn out like the picture they gave, it was okay. Here’s what I did: I also finished Dark Shadows last Sunday: And then I started…

More finishes!

Yes! I have more finishes! And I’m almost done with the Dark Shadows series! Here are two pictures of what I have: I’ve also been working on more pattern designs, though you’ll have to wait to see those (don’t worry, they’re going to be EPIC!)    And now for a double dose of cute:  …

The cats let me sleep in!

The cats have decided to be nice this morning, and didn’t make me get out of bed super early! I got two extra hours of sleep! I swear it’s like having a baby, the way Crookshanks meows and cries in the morning to be let out of my room. That said, I have TWO finishes this…

Of Ravens and Vampires

Firstly, I started and then finished a project last week! It’s one of the patterns from Sue Hillis’ ‘Dark Shadows’ booklet. I will be doing the other 5 on the same fabric (Fabrics by LJ in the color Chocolate Cherry) that StitchingLis so graciously sent me. Check her out on youtube! Here’s what I have: Of…

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…
