The Time Traveler #WIP #xstitch

I also spent hours watching Dr. Who with the Enginerd and stitching on my Time Traveler. I’ve missed her as she sat neglected during my Christmas stitching. I’m falling more in love with this fabric everyday. #2017starts #stitchmaynia #crossstitch #craftblogger #timetraveler #thetimetraveler #drwho #fantasydyedfabrics from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2CT3joY

Workshop Santa and Madonna & Child (both) by Joan Elliott #WIP #xstitch

I’m setting Santa to the side today to work on Madonna & Child. I love this Blueberry Jobelan! #joanelliott #dmcfloss #flosstube #crossstitch #craftblogger #crossstitchersofinstagram #stitchfromstash2017 #stitchersofinstagram #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #2016start from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2p3dZL6

Workshop Santa #WIP #xstitch

Just about time to move the Qsnaps. (And find a few missing skeins…) I guess I am nearly halfway finished. But I really want to spend some time on my Madonna & Child too. #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #crossstitch #craftblogger #crossstitchersofinstagram #stitchmaynia #stitchfromstash2017 #2016start #santasworkshop #workshopsanta #santa #pointdecroix #flosstube #joanelliott #dmcfloss from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2kIzXhn

Cross Stitch #WIP Updates (December 2017)

The month of November (my birthday month!) was very stitchy for me. #november #crossstitch . . . #dmcfloss #fantasydyedfabrics #stitchmaynia #xstitchersofinstagram #stitchfromstash2017 #sunnydyesfabrics #asit #joanelliott #myfirststitch #bucilla A post shared by Creative Madness Mama Margaret (@cherryblossommj) on Dec 2, 2017 at 11:53am PST So far December has started off being pretty stitchingly gratifying as well. I started off December carrying over my progress on The Time Traveler by Joan Elliott. I am working on a 28 count opalescent individual dye from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics. So far she is a delight to work on. I’ve had a bit more frogging that I’ve experienced in the past, but I used to be a make-it-work stitcher and I’m trying to be a bit more dedicated now. Plus there may have been some late nights and a fever involved with some of that… She is nearly to a half way to completion point, but. . .

Santa’s Workshop #WIP #xstitch

I’ve pulled out a Christmas 🎄 project now that my Time Traveler is at about the halfway point. #santasworkshop #christmas #christmas2017sal #2016start #crossstitch #craftblogger #stitchmaynia #stitchfromstash2017 #stitchersofinstagram #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #pointdecroix #joanelliott from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2Ax7WnF

Time Traveler by Joan Elliott #WIP #xstitch

Today’s plan is to get down into the khaki green of her skirt. I love this lady. She’s just gorgeous. #dmcfloss #2017starts #flosstube #crossstitch #craftblogger #crossstitchersofinstagram #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #stitchmaynia #fantasydyedfabrics #dmcfloss from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2BszVks

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

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
