Cross Stitch #WIP Updates (November 2017)

Should I even try to look up to see how long it has been since I made a stitchy update on the blog? I mean beyond an Instagram re-post, an actually, hey this is what’s up with me and my needle post… hmm… Let’s not and just pretend I’ve been here all along. Well, in all honesty, since the last time I was rambling here I have had three finishes including In the Arms of an Angel (Lavender and Lace 47), Woodland Enchantress (Dimensions Gold Collection by Ruth Sanderson aka Christmas Fairy), and Patriotic Angel (Dimensions Gold Collection). This is in addition to the earlier finish of my oldest daughter’s Holly Hobbie (Bucilla) birth sampler which I believe I have shown you previously. Through out this year and last I have been stitching away, but things have been chaotic with taking a new avenue in our homeschooling methods as well. . .

The Time Traveler #WIP #xstitch

I took off two days to rest my wrist. I spent this evening relaxing, watching a 1980s movie 🎥, watching my husband snuggle with my two middle children, my oldest (8) calmly getting my (6m) baby to sleep in her bouncy seat, while stitching away. It was absolutely blissful. #labyrinth #thetimetraveler #timetraveler #drwho #joanelliott #fantasydyedfabrics

Thin Stix Creativity Pack (Art Supplies) {Review}

We have fast come to love anything we get our hands on from the wonderful people at The Pencil Grip, Inc. and that holds true again with our latest discovery of Thin Stix Creativity Pack. We are so blessed to receive a 24-color pack to add to our art supplies for review. Today’s review post is a little bit different. I’m going to insert a short (less than five minutes) video to show you our set and some examples of art works that my girls have produced with it. The links included (above) are not affiliate links as were mentioned in my previous post, but a different store to show what all is available as requested by the wonderful vendor. Oh and while I’m on the past mentionings, don’t forget to check my review of The Pencil Grip. Now, back to it! Kwik Stix are amazing. We love our little. . .

The Time Traveler #WIP #xstitch Start

When you can no longer focus well enough to thread the needle, and the baby is squirming on the monitor, then it is time to call it a night right? #fantasydyedfabrics #pointdecroix #xstitchersofinstagram #xstitch #crossstitch #craftblogger #stitchmaynia #stitchfromstash2017 #stitchersofinstagram #joanelliott #dmcfloss #opalescent #lugana from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2y41JKJ

Fall Faerie #WIP #xstitch Update

Well it took me all day (stopping for multiple child attention bits) but I have finally made it all the way to the far left corner of page one. I think I’m done for today on this one, but I look forward to pulling it out next week as it will be much easier going left to right instead!! #flosstube #xstitchersofinstagram #xstitch #stitchersofinstagram #stitchmaynia #stitchfromstash2017 #fairy #fallfairy #fallfaerie #ruthsanderson #ruthsandersonart #dimensionsgoldcollection #pointdecroix from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2AmGeWG

The Time Traveler #WIP #xstitch Start

And so it begins… (the color doesn’t look quite right in my picture. It is more pink than fuschia.) #joanelliott #lugana #thetimetraveler #timetraveler #2017starts #drwho #stitchmaynia #crossstitch #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #pointdecroix #fantasydyedfabrics from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2zgj84f

The Little Stitching Fairy #WIP #xstitch Update

When my eyes start showing fatigue, I guess I better call it a night. I spent the morning in my Fall Fairy and then the evening on my @joanelliottdesign Little Stitching Fairy. I just love this pattern. ❤️ I’m stitching her on my first piece of #handdyedfabricsbystephanie and I’m really enjoying plotting how to add in the Fairy Garden Alphabet letters for my girls.
I need to decide a way to add a letter for my son as well. Any recommendations?

Fall Faerie #WIP #xstitch Update

This periwinkle shade and deep purple is just amazing. Has to be my favorite color ever. I know some people dislike specialty stitches but I love combinations of half crosses, blends and deep textures. Just loving it. ❤️ #dimensionsgoldcollection #pointdecroix #ruthsandersonart #ruthsanderson #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #fallfairy #autumn #flosstube #crossstitch from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2A5bo4g

The Raven Queen #WIP #xstitch

Making progress and this tower is finished. While working on the border something isn’t quite adding up but I think it was the spire which is in negative space anyway so I think I will just leave it.
Really enjoying Mirabilia’s The Raven Queen on Sunny Dyes Raven painted opalescent fabric.
