Children By the Seaside #WIP #xstitch (Joan Elliott)

Made some more progress on the purple tent last night. But I’m going to put this #joanelliott #childrenbytheseaside away for now. I need to get cracking a bit more on my HAED Challenge 3 as the deadline is looming and in doubtful to make it. Also I want to start on ASIT! from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2dcWgZg

HAED Challenge 3 #WIP #xstitch

End of Challenge 3 with only a few hours to spare. Challenge stitch goal was 7.3K. I finally stopped at just over 7.7K stitches in. That’s a whole Large page and over half of a second. #xstitch #crossstitch #haed #heavenandearthdesigns #laguna #28count 1×1 #summer #ruthsanderson from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2etcaSn

Cross Stich Update (September 2016)

This past year, my love for the sewing needlework art of cross stitch has taken me by surprise and a powerful passion. While I have been stitching on and off since around the age of fourteen, when I made my first stamped cross stitch quilt… This year I have discovered all sorts of new techniques and challenges and I’m loving every minute with a thrilling excitement. At this point, I have started two HAED projects (long term, huge one over one designs of full coverage). I discovered Heaven and Earth Designs when I was looking to complete my seasonal fairies from a beloved artist Ruth Sanderson. I had started out with two Dimensions Kits of Fall Faerie and Woodland Enchantress. Right now, I have one completed page of four finished on the fall faerie and the woodland enchantress is completely stitched except for a bit of backstitching and beads. I. . .

In the Arms of An Angel (ready for beads!) #wip #xstitch

I got extensions in the mail today. Now finally she all fits on the frame in one view. Now I just need to be brave enough to start beading. #crossstitch #crossstitchaddict #inthearmsofanangel #jobelan #28count #lavenderandlace #angel #miscarriage #millhillbeads from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2craS5w

The Raven Queen (new start!) #wip #xstitch

Done for the night. Started her skin 1×1 (28 count Laguna) and I’m realizing the next stitch on her arms is meant to be a blended stitch. Any suggestions???? #wip #crossstitch #xstitch #theravenqueen #crossstitchaddict #crossstichersofinstagram #crossstitcher #xstitchersofinstagram #28count from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2c5kiFQ

Adventures in Nashville (from a reader’s perspective) Part 1

This past week I was blessed with the experience of an incredible adventure. As a mama of three littles under the age of seven, I do not get out much and I have never before been away over night. As my youngest has recently turned two and is nearly weaned this was the time for a mama adventure. A beloved dear reader friend invited me to share an Airbnb and attend a one-day Christian Fiction Readers Retreat. We turned it into three days and had an amazing time! One might think, what is the big deal getting together with a reader friend? But what if I told you that this friend lives states and many hours away and our relationship was built upon the commonality of our book choices and timing of our addition of children to our families? We are kindred spirits, although we may be in contact from. . .

In the Arms of an Angel is ready for beads #WIP #xstitch

Well here she is folks. I found one skipped stitch of 815 in her skirt while adding in the @kreinikthreads 002. As well as one skipped blended stitch of 815/3371 too. I will be able to fill those in. But I’m out of 002, so I need to decide if I’m headed to my LNS or online to 123stitch.com. I doubt my @joann_stores will have the #kreinik . #crossstitch #xstitch #WIP #28count #wichelt #morningdew #jobelan #crossstitcher #crossstitching #craftbloggers #crossstitchaddict #crossstitchersofinstagram #stitchersofinstagram #stitchmaynia #xstitchersofinstagram from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2bABR1O
She is ready for beads. This freaks me out a bit as I haven’t ever added beads to my cross stitch before. I guess truly she is my first more advanced cross stitch. The first one I’ve stepped away from kits and Aida fabrics. I know I have two of the three colors that I need of Mill Hill Beads so we will have to see what I decide to do next.
