Cross stitch Haul and update

I have a cross stitch haul! A big one, too! A family member gave me $100 to spend on stitchy supplies, so I bought a bunch of things from 123stitch.com!  9 Mill Hill kits, 3 Sue Hillis patterns, and 1 pattern from Diane Arthurs. With shipping, it came to $95.88, so I’m going to spend…

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. As you may know, it’s a pattern found in the 2017 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue. It’s a fairly small stitch count if you just…

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…

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…

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,…

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…
