Winter’s Grace #WIP #xstitch

I’ve been working a little every day, all week long. Yet I wanted to get to a better point for a photo. So here you go, her wings are complete. “Winter’s Grace” by @joanelliottdesign 28 count opalescent white cashel #crossstitch #2017starts #joanelliott #pointdecroix #stitchmaynia #dmcthreads #winter #wintersgrace from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2FZkW4o

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

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

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

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 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.

The Raven & The Raven Queen #xstitch

The Raven is a project the Enginerd picked out for me to do for him.

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;—  . . .
