A page finish!!!

Woot! I finished the page on Wednesday! Which means I’ve finished the whole first row!

Also, I’ve been working on Mickey for the past few days. Not bad progress if you ask me:

I haven’t really been working on anything else, so those are the only cross stitch photos I have for you. I do, however, have kitten pictures!

So until next time, Happy Stitching!

So close… oh so close

As you can probably guess from the title, I’m so close to finishing the page. I managed to do four colors on both Friday and Saturday instead of the usual two, so I’m now two days ahead of schedule! Here is this week’s picture (can you identify a second character on this page? He has hair and some clothes now!):

Mickey has some progress too. I’ve stitched most of the white on that pattern. I just have to finish his left glove, and do the whites in his eyes, then I can switch to black:

I’ve started a third project. I’m making stitched Christmas ornaments this year, so when the cats climb up the Christmas tree, if they knock anything down, it won’t break. Here’s what I have done on the first one (it’s Tigger with a Snowman-Winnie the Pooh)

Lastly, kitten pictures.

That’s all for now. Until next time, Happy Stitching!

Please excuse my messy threads

Okay, I got those threads I needed, and surprise of all surprises, my local Walmart had them. I’ve also started a new starting and finishing technique, so the front of my work looks a little messy at the moment, but it will look much better when I finish the page. Here’s the picture:

I finished the metallic thread! All the metallic thread is done! And it looks good! See for yourself:

Lastly, kitten adorable-ness!

That’s all for now, and, as always, Happy Stitching!

How did that happen?

I ran out of a specific color (DMC 798). How? I could have sworn I had a lot of that one. Sadly, the person I used to buy my DMC from online no longer sells them. So now I have to see if my local Walmart has this color, or find out when someone’s going to Reno, and ask if they can pick some up for me. Anyways, here’s this week’s progress.

For the Mickey project, I finished the gold metallic thread, and I may start the silver tonight. I know it’s not that great of a picture, but I’ll make sure next week’s picture is much much better.

Still no progress on the blanket, but I do have kitten pictures!

That’s all for this week. Until next time, Happy Stitching!

Hizzah! A page finish!

On Wednesday, I finished page 6! I then took a two and a half day break from this behemoth and  worked on another project. But first, a picture of the finished page, as well as what little work I did yesterday on this piece:

Secondly, the new project I started. The pattern is Sorcerer Mickey (Fantasia) from a pattern book from the 80’s. I did most of the gold metallic thread over two days, not working for long each time (Kreinek is evil lol). The gold and soon to be added silver stitches are the magic arching around Mickey. Here’s the picture:

As for the blanket… I have temporarily lost interest lol so no progress on that.

However, I do have kitten pictures!

Spooky is actually getting big! She’s still small, but, she’s a lot bigger than when I got her. Crookshanks is huge! Though he can curl up into a tiny, cute ball sometimes lol

 

That’s all for now, so until next time, Happy Stitching!
