July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 1

July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 1

I finished Remembrance, and I dove head into my next project, July’s Amethyst Fairy.  I’m making this as a gift for my mom.  One day we were talking about my cross-stitch and the projects I’ve made as gifts over the years, and she commented that she didn’t have one.  I immediately felt like crap. LOL.  … Continue reading

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

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

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

Caprice

Caprice by Nora Corbett (Mirabilia) A finish!  I finally have a finish.  It’s been a very long time.  I guess forgetting my current project at work last weekend was a good thing. It forced me to pick up this WIP and work on the beading, which by the way, took FOREVER! Enjoy the close-ups! On … Continue reading

Dark Wings Progress No. 1

Dark Wings Progress No. 1

Fuh, fuh, fuh, FINALLY!  I have finally started this project.  Sadly, I’ve had too many starts on it.  I’m surprised I haven’t given up on it yet.  You can read about that here and here.  In my last post regarding Dark Wings, I boasted about how I found the best fabric for her.  So proud … Continue reading

Caprice (Muse) Progress No. 3

Caprice (Muse) Progress No. 3

Wow…has it ever been long between posts!  Can you believe I haven’t stitched at all?  Well, not until this past weekend.  I finally picked up my project after my daughter picked hers up once again. Lots has happened during the time I was gone. A close family member was diagnosed with colon cancer. There were … Continue reading

Holly (Updated)

I picked up both Holly and Poppy at the same time, but I opted to have them featured on separate posts to keep up with the theme of the blog. I’m very happy with Holly’s outcome.  In the last progress post for Holly, I mentioned that I noticed an error after I submitted her for … Continue reading

I picked up Poppy from the framer’s about three weeks ago, but I didn’t have a chance to post the final product until now.  I kept forgetting to snap a picture of it, but here she is. Enjoy! Poppy was stitched on Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie, Abyss, 32-ct Jobelan, 2 over 2.  Total cost … Continue reading
