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

Cute Bunny Progress No. 1

Cute Bunny Progress No. 1

This weekend, I visited Gitta’s with my cousin and my stitching buddy, Maria (of Cross Stitch Expressions).  It’s been a while since I last visited, and the store was completely rearranged. This was my cousin’s first visit, and she loved it.  She knits and crochets, and I thought there would be more of those supplies … Continue reading

July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 2

July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 2

Wow.  Is this really only my second progress post?  I haven’t stitched at all.  I put this down and never picked it up.  I kept putting it off. Christmas passed.  Mother’s Day passed.  My mom’s birthday passed. Then another Christmas passed.  I had lost my stitching bug.  I did try a side project, but I … Continue reading

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

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
