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,…

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…

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…

Flitwick, finished

This past week, I finished two patterns. The first was a commissioned piece for a friend based off of the anime Black Butler. Here’s what it looks like:   The second, which I admit I’m far more proud of, is one I designed for the shop and is based off…

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…

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…

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…

Weekly Roundup #1

This post contains affiliate links. If you click on one, I get five cents.   So begins a (hopefully) weekly round up of things I love.    First and foremost was last night’s episode of Supernatural! The Scooby Doo cross over had me in stitches from laughing so hard. The…

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….
