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

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

The Fox

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

Remembrance Progress No. 2

Remembrance Progress No. 2

I’ve been quietly stitching away since my last post. I’m also trying to balance my gym workouts with the stitching.  Normally, I stitch during the evening and weekends, but lately, I’ve been going to the gym on weekdays (evenings) and stitching on the weekends only. There was about a half week where I did neither.  … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 1

I’m so happy to report that I’m starting a new project.  I ordered my first-ever Joan Elliott chart, Remembrance.  It arrived rather quickly, which I was really happy about.  I am stitching this project as a gift for someone special, who is going through a very difficult time.  She loves angels, so I hope she’ll … Continue reading

September 28 – Topic:  Where do you buy most of your stitching supplies? I purchase my stitching supplies from quite a few places, but if I had to list the places I’ve used over the last little while, I would say the following: Cross-stitch expressions Michael’s (right across the street…yay me!)

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

Ballerina Birth Announcement 3

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

April’s Blue Diamond

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

Ballerina Birth Announcement 2

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
