Remembrance

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

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

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

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

Caprice (Updated)

Caprice (Updated)

In addition to picking up my Gorjuss project from the framer, I also picked up my Caprice project.  I was so happy to finally have her framed. I was holding on to this for quite some time before I submitted for framing. Now my Muse wall is complete. I have one more Muse to stitch … 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

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

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. As of late, I’ve tried to shy away from washing the completed projects … Continue reading

Let It Snow, Snowmen ABC

Let It Snow, Snowmen ABC

My daughter finished her Gorjuss project (to be featured in an upcoming post). She checked out the other patterns available and requested one of them, so I’ll be ordering that for her.  In the meantime, she decided to kill some time and start another snowman alphabet. This time around, she compelted the letter R.  As … Continue reading
