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…

Commission Stitching

Let’s talk a little bit about commission stitching. I’ve done a bit of commission stitching before. Quiet recently, in fact. I usually only take pieces that are small, quick, and easy so I can knock them out and not feel bored with them for too long. I also only do commissions for people I trust…

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…

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…

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…
