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

July’s Amethyst Fairy

July’s Amethyst Fairy

 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

Pounce

POUNCE by Leisure Arts I bet you didn’t know that there is another stitcher in my house besides me and my daughter.  I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it before, but my son also knows how to stitch.  He hasn’t stitched anything in AGES, but he used to, when he was much, much younger. He … 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

Ballerina Birth Announcement (Update)

I’ve been away from my blog for a bit, because work has been super busy.  Normally, I would take a few minutes out of my day to provide an update, but I just haven’t had a chance. While I’ve been away, I’ve managed to keep up with my stitching during the evenings and weekends.  I’ve … Continue reading

The Fox

The Fox by Gorjuss (Santoro London) My daughter’s been working on her cross-stitching, and she finished her latest Gorjuss project, The Fox.  I’m hoping to take it in this weekend for framing, and I’m looking forward to hanging it along with the rest of her collection. I apologize for my absence, but work has been … Continue reading

April’s Blue Diamond (Updated)

April’s Blue Diamond (Updated)

I picked up April’s Blue Diamond from the framer, and of course, I’m very pleased with the final piece. April’s Blue Diamond was stitched on Hand-Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie, Storm, 28-ct Jobelan, 2 over 2.  Normally, I would list my framing cost here, but I won’t in this case, because it’s a gift. This time … Continue reading

April’s Blue Diamond

April’s Blue Diamond by Mirabilia (Nora Corbett) The mystery gift reveal is finally here.  I’m sure any Mirabilia/Nora Corbett fan figured this one out ages ago.  I really don’t think that the person for whom this gift is intended knows about my blog, so I don’t think she’ll see it.  Besides, I never mentioned who … Continue reading

Caprice (Updated)

Caprice (Updated)

In addition to picking up my Gorjuss project from the framer, I also picked up my Caprice project.  I was so happy to finally have her framed. I was holding on to this for quite some time before I submitted for framing. Now my Muse wall is complete. I have one more Muse to stitch … Continue reading

Purrrrrfect Love (Updated)

Purrrrrfect Love (Updated)

I love picking up projects from the framer.  Love, love, love.  I feel like I hold my breath until he does the reveal! Once again, I think my choice of frame and mat work perfectly with this project.  The measurements on this one are a little different from the other two.  The height is the … Continue reading
