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

Remembrance Progress No. 5

This will probably be my last progress post, as I’ve been working my way through the back stitching and am very close to starting the beading.  My next post on Remembrance will be my close-up post, beads and all. I’m very, very happy with the way this is coming out.  She’s just lovely.  It’s a … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 4

I feel like I just posted the other day, but when I looked at the next couple of progress shots, I realized it’s been much longer than that.  Where does the time go? I’ve been working on my cross-stitch during my lunch hours and trying to get as much as I can done during the … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 3

Well, It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update for Remembrance.  My progress has been so-so. There are periods where I get a lot of stitching done.  Then there are periods where I don’t pick it up for about a week or so.  When I first started stitching the project, I made great progress … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 2

I’ve been quietly stitching away since my last post. I’m also trying to balance my gym workouts with the stitching.  Normally, I stitch during the evening and weekends, but lately, I’ve been going to the gym on weekdays (evenings) and stitching on the weekends only. There was about a half week where I did neither.  … Continue reading

Remembrance Progress No. 1

I’m so happy to report that I’m starting a new project.  I ordered my first-ever Joan Elliott chart, Remembrance.  It arrived rather quickly, which I was really happy about.  I am stitching this project as a gift for someone special, who is going through a very difficult time.  She loves angels, so I hope she’ll … Continue reading

Evening Primrose (Update)

Evening Primrose (Update)

I picked up Evening Primrose from the framer’s this weekend, and I’m pleased with the outcome.  As usual, he did not disappoint.  The waiting time for the frame did not take long, because he had pre-ordered the frame I needed.  Nothing like a quick turnaround! Evening Primrose was stitched on Sugar Maple Fabrics, Wyvern, 28-ct … Continue reading

Evening Primrose by Nora Corbett (Mirabilia) My goal was to finish the remainder of the beading on Evening Primrose Friday evening, and I accomplished that goal.  I brought her in the next day to have her framed.  She should be ready for pick up this weekend, and I can’t wait to pick her up and … Continue reading

Evening Primrose Progress No. 3

I’m very happy with the progress I’ve made on Evening Primrose.  I managed to finish all the stitching and back stitching.  I even managed to start beading.  In fact, I beaded for the greater part of yesterday.  I just hunkered down and beaded the afternoon away. I’d like to continue my beading during the evenings … Continue reading

Evening Primrose Progress No. 2

I’ve made some pretty good progress since my last post.  I worked on it a bit every evening (once the dinner-time chaos settled down).  I was hoping to make a dent in it this past weekend, but that didn’t happen.  There were too many things to get done before school started. In any event, here’s … Continue reading
