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

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

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

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

Winter White Santa Progress No. 2

I’ve been making steady progress on this project, and so far I’m enjoying it.  Here’s what I’ve done since my last post (days 5 to 9): I was determined to log my time spent on stitching this time around, because I was curious as to how many working hours I actually spent on a project.  … Continue reading

Winter White Santa Progress No. 1

I got tired of beading my mystery gift.  I worked on it for four days in a row and managed to get a lot done.  However, anyone who has beaded a project knows that’s a lot of beading.  To give myself a little bit a of break, I decided to get a start on Winter … Continue reading

Mystery Gift Progress No. 10

Mystery Gift Progress No. 10

Yay!  My final progress post for this project.  All stitching is now complete, including the lazy daisy stitches, which I almost looked over.  Thank goodness I quickly read through the back stitching instructions one last time to make sure I got everything. As I was completing my lazy daisy stitches, the power went out!  Thankfully, … Continue reading

Mystery Gift Progress No. 9

Mystery Gift Progress No. 9

Yay!  I’m making progress.  The upside to not being able to work out is that I have more time to stitch.  I’ve been spending my evenings in front of the TV stitching away.  Besides, who wants to go out in this cold anyway?  I don’t know about anywhere else, but where I am, temps are … Continue reading
