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

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

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

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

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

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

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

I’ve been quietly stitching away during my lunch hour and during the evenings after I’ve settled down.  I’m happy with my progress, and at this rate, I think I’ll have him finished in a decent amount of time.  The latest photos are 10 to 18. Day 18 represents the fabric closer to true to colour. … Continue reading

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

I’ve been making steady progress on this project, and so far I’m enjoying it.  Here’s what I’ve done since my last post (days 5 to 9): I was determined to log my time spent on stitching this time around, because I was curious as to how many working hours I actually spent on a project.  … Continue reading
