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

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

Stargazer Progress No. 1

Stargazer Progress No. 1

My daughter is working on Stargazer, so I’ll be showcasing her project on my blog. We played around with fabrics that I had on hand and we settled on a fabric that looks remarkably similar to this: I found this image via Google search, and I’ll post the source link to give appropriate credit, but … Continue reading
