Ballerina Birth Announcement (Update)

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

I received the Glissen Gloss that I was waiting for and whipped up the tutus in no time.  As if the ballerinas weren’t already adorable, the adorable factor has been amped up big time! The Glissen Gloss was a bit tricky to work with.  To be honest, I followed the chart at the beginning and … Continue reading

I managed to finish the second of the two ballerinas of my birth announcement, and this is my contribution to August 2015’s IHSW. She was a very quick stitch.  I had her finished in no time. I’m still waiting for my Glissen Gloss special order to come in.  I also need to add the birth … Continue reading

Oh my!  It’s been at least three months since my last post, and I haven’t stitched one iota.  Actually, I started stitching about four days ago, and I’m slowly getting back into it.  I was so distracted with my gym training, that I just didn’t have the time to spare for stitching.  Plus, the weather … Continue reading

My Thanksgiving Day sale purchase was delivered a couple of weeks ago.  I’m am so pleased with my fabrics.  Honestly, Stephanie has yet to disappoint.  I would highly recommend buying from her. If you’ll remember, I chose Secret for Red.  Secret is described as “pink and shades of grey”, which is perfect for Red, which … Continue reading

I took advantage of the Thanksgiving Day sale and, after much debate, purchased the following two fabrics. I chose Secret for Red… …and Storm for dah, dah, dah…I can’t say.  It’s a gift for a friend.  Unfortunately, anything related to this project cannot be shared until the very end.  I don’t think I’ll be getting … Continue reading

Dark Wings

Dark Wings

I’m making good on my promise to finally add Dark Wings to my rotation.  (Not that I have a rotation, as I don’t like to stitch more than one project at a time.) I’ve set it aside for too long.  I already have three starts on it.  You can read about it here. This will … Continue reading

Fabric, fabric, and more fabric. That seems to be a common theme in my posts as of late.  I was happy to have finally received my hand-dyed fabrics from Stephanie.  As with my first order from her, this one did not disappoint.  This is what I got: I will be stitching Melody on Banshee. I … Continue reading

After a somewhat disappointing craft show, Maria’s husband was kind enough to drive us over to the framer’s so that I could pick up Tigerlily (I will post the finished project in the next couple of days). After the pickup, we headed to Maria’s house for some food, stitching, and good company.  We each went … Continue reading
