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

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

Ruby

Ruby by Gorjuss (Santoro London)   I completed Ruby over the weekend, and I’m happy with the outcome.  I did find the swing ropes a bit tricky, because it’s been quite a while since I’ve actually had to do this.  I think I could have done better, but like I said, I’m happy with the … Continue reading

Purrrrrfect Love

Purrrrrfect Love by Gorjuss (Santoro London) My daughter has completed her third Gorjuss project.  This one took a little bit longer to complete, because she put it down for quite a while, but when she got to stitching, she made great progress.

Two weekends ago, I had to cancel my daughter’s guitar lesson due to bad weather driving conditions.  This past weekend, … Continue reading

Purrrrrfect Love Progress No. 1

Purrrfect Love by Gorjuss (Santoro London) It’s been a while since I’ve featured my daughter’s cross-stitch work.  Then again, it’s been a while since she’s stitched anything.  Every once in a while, she’ll pick up her project and stitch away. Here’s the progress she’s made on Purrrrrfect Love so far: She became so bored stitching … Continue reading

I Gave You My Heart (Updated)

Picked up three projects over the weekend from the framer’s.  I love our frame and mat choice for this project.  I wanted the measurements (frame, mat, and design size) and style (frame type and mats) to match her previous Gorjuss project. As with the last project, total cost for mats, framing, non-glare glass, and labour … Continue reading
