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. . .

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. . .

Fall Faerie #WIP #xstitch Update

Well it took me all day (stopping for multiple child attention bits) but I have finally made it all the way to the far left corner of page one.

Fall Faerie #WIP #xstitch Update

This periwinkle shade and deep purple is just amazing. Has to be my favorite color ever. I know some people dislike specialty stitches but I love combinations of half crosses, blends and deep textures. Just loving it. ❤️ #dimensionsgoldcollection #pointdecroix #ruthsandersonart #ruthsanderson #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #fallfairy #autumn #flosstube #crossstitch from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2A5bo4g
