July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 1

July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 1

I finished Remembrance, and I dove head into my next project, July’s Amethyst Fairy.  I’m making this as a gift for my mom.  One day we were talking about my cross-stitch and the projects I’ve made as gifts over the years, and she commented that she didn’t have one.  I immediately felt like crap. LOL.  … Continue reading

Mini Stash

Mini Stash

I came across a stash sale on Facebook, and I ended up purchasing the following: I did have a scissor fob that Maria made me, but it got caught on something and broke into pieces.  I didn’t replace the fob until I saw this cute dragonfly fob.  I love it.   I also couldn’t resist … Continue reading

Remembrance

Remembrance

Remembrance by Joan Elliott I was finally able to finish this project for my cousin.  Although I rather enjoyed beading the swirls around the wings, head, and dress, I felt like the beading on the dress was never going to end.  Because this took forever, I opted out of stitching the French knots all over … Continue reading

We Have a Hit

We Have a Hit

My friend adored her gift.  I was able to courier it to her just in time for her birthday.  I’m so happy. I wish I could have delivered it myself.  I would have loved to have seen her reaction.  I was so worried it was going to break in transit.  I bought a special box … Continue reading

Stitching Bloggers’ Blog Hop (#21)

Your favorite post on your blog from this year so far. This one’s a bit difficult for me, because I don’t have very many postings for 2016.  I just don’t have a lot on the go.  I’m currently working on a larger project, and I don’t like to have too many projects on the go.  … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 5

Remembrance Progress No. 5

This will probably be my last progress post, as I’ve been working my way through the back stitching and am very close to starting the beading.  My next post on Remembrance will be my close-up post, beads and all. I’m very, very happy with the way this is coming out.  She’s just lovely.  It’s a … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 4

Remembrance Progress No. 4

I feel like I just posted the other day, but when I looked at the next couple of progress shots, I realized it’s been much longer than that.  Where does the time go? I’ve been working on my cross-stitch during my lunch hours and trying to get as much as I can done during the … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 3

Remembrance Progress No. 3

Well, It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update for Remembrance.  My progress has been so-so. There are periods where I get a lot of stitching done.  Then there are periods where I don’t pick it up for about a week or so.  When I first started stitching the project, I made great progress … Continue reading

Melody (Muse) Progress No. 1

Melody (Muse) Progress No. 1

I’ve been away from my blog longer than I would have liked.  I’m just so busy with work and home life (mom’s knee replacement surgery), that I barely have a chance to get online anymore. While I do manage to find some time, I’ve been quietly stitching away during my evenings working on Remembrance.  Also, … Continue reading
