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…

Nevermore cross stitch project

Quoth the raven, Nevermore. You’ve seen it before. The Nevermore cross stitch pattern, and now here it is! Finally, after almost a month of hard work, I’ve finished stitching Nevermore.

Stitch Maynia week one
