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.

Keep Calm

My plans for today. Actually I was attempting to take a selfie and mention my plans to cross stitch the day away regardless thirst the shirt says quilt as it is my passion.

Stitchy spot, stolen…

I set up my stitchy spot and told my girls it was time for school. The middle girl (6) has disappeared with her brother (3) and PBS on the Kindle Fire. The oldest (8) jumped in my spot with HER cross stitch and said, “it’s okay, you can read to me while I stitch. After all, that’s all sorts of educational.” #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #flosstube #stitchmaynia #crossstitch #homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolingmama #bucilla #bucillakit #myfirstcrossstitch from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2gQGWDF

Mermaid Conversion #WIP #xstitch

As much as I can accomplish on the February mermaid without buying more threads. Put them on my list! I’m going to work on the border a bit more before switching to a different project. But I think she is lovely so far! #mermaid #lakesidefantasysal #2016starts #stitchmaynia #stitchfromstash2017 #crossstitch #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #flosstube from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2tuBnRV

That lovely moment when the borders meet up perfectly. While I did have a bit of frogging in the beginning of this journey my days stitching is good. #crossstitch #joanelliott #joanelliottjuly #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #fantasydyedfabrics #yearofmagicalstitching #february #2017starts #stitchmaynia #stitchfromstash2017 #dmcfloss from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2uwhATR

Children by the Seaside #WIP #xstitch

Started last summer with nothing but the sky. At that point I had only these three children. And that summer was our first beach adventure. Now this summer I’m making good progress on the tents and a little of the beach so far. Love this @joanelliottdesign ! Children by the Seaside 🌊 on 28 count 2×2 on laguna
