Lickle Ted Progress No. 1

Lickle Ted Progress No. 1

Hello, everyone!  It’s been a while.  I haven’t been stitching much, which is odd, because with the quarantine lock-downs, you’d think I would be taking advantage of the down time. I’ve been spreading my time between reading, online training, and being a slouch. Just recently, I decided to throw my cross-stitch back into rotation. I’m … Continue reading

Stargazer Progress No. 3

Stargazer Progress No. 3

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on my daughter’s project.  She made a bit of headway with it for a while and then put it down again. Since then, she hasn’t touched it, which is a shame. She could have blasted through this during the COVID lock down while there was nothing … Continue reading

Scissor FOB

Scissor FOB

My dragonfly scissor FOB broke.  I’m kind of sad about it.  I really liked it. You know what happens when something breaks?  You either fix it or replace it.  And, since I don’t really know how to fix it, I bought a new one. I found my latest acquisition from the Those Crazy Ladies Etsy … Continue reading

Cute Bunny

Cute Bunny

Cute Bunny by Nadezha Mashtakova I have a new small finish.  This one took me approximately one month to complete.  I’m glad I decided to do this small one in between my large ones.  It gives me the illusion of making progress.  Who doesn’t like a finish?  Am I right? The eye called for a … Continue reading

Which Option Did I Choose?

Which Option Did I Choose?

I took my project in for framing today. Although I’m always excited to take a project in for framing, because I’m that much closer to having a fully completed project, I’m always a little bit overwhelmed with all the framing and matting options and colour combinations from which to choose.  I’m a very visual person.  … Continue reading

 July’s Amethyst Fairy by Mirabilia (Nora Corbett) We have a finish!  I can’t believe I completed this in record time.  I really hunkered down during the evenings and weekends, am I’m so happy my effort paid off. About 3/4 of the way through this project, I came across a post on Facebook, stating that the … Continue reading
