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

Stargazer Progress No. 3

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on my daughter’s project.  She made a bit of headway with it for a while and then put it down again. Since then, she hasn’t touched it, which is a shame. She could have blasted through this during the COVID lock down while there was nothing … Continue reading

 July’s Amethyst Fairy by Mirabilia (Nora Corbett) We have a finish!  I can’t believe I completed this in record time.  I really hunkered down during the evenings and weekends, am I’m so happy my effort paid off.

Christmas passed.  Mother’s Day passed.  My mom’s birthday passed. Then another Christmas passed.  I had lost my stitching bug.  I did try a side project, but I … Continue reading

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

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
