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

July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 2

July’s Amethyst Fairy Progress No. 2

Wow.  Is this really only my second progress post?  I haven’t stitched at all.  I put this down and never picked it up.  I kept putting it 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.

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

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

I’ve been quietly stitching away during my lunch hour and during the evenings after I’ve settled down.  I’m happy with my progress, and at this rate, I think I’ll have him finished in a decent amount of time.  The latest photos are 10 to 18. Day 18 represents the fabric closer to true to colour. … Continue reading
