Remembrance Progress No. 2

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

Ballerina Birth Announcement 3

I received the Glissen Gloss that I was waiting for and whipped up the tutus in no time.  As if the ballerinas weren’t already adorable, the adorable factor has been amped up big time! The Glissen Gloss was a bit tricky to work with.  To be honest, I followed the chart at the beginning and … Continue reading

I managed to finish the second of the two ballerinas of my birth announcement, and this is my contribution to August 2015’s IHSW. She was a very quick stitch.  I had her finished in no time. I’m still waiting for my Glissen Gloss special order to come in.  I also need to add the birth … Continue reading

Oh my!  It’s been at least three months since my last post, and I haven’t stitched one iota.  Actually, I started stitching about four days ago, and I’m slowly getting back into it.  I was so distracted with my gym training, that I just didn’t have the time to spare for stitching.  Plus, the weather … 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

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
