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 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.

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

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.

Specialty bits & bobs: Hand dyed thread and fabric Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, …    And the silken, sad, uncertain rustling of each purple curtain Thrilled me—filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;     So that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating     “’Tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door— Some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door;—  . . .
