Hey everyone! I think I might be crazy. ‘Why?’ You ask? Because I plan to start AND finish twenty one (that’s 21) projects this year. Yes, you read that correctly, TWENTY ONE projects. Not including the big Disney one. I’ve already started two of them, which I will show you a little further down the page. Also, I’ve made my first order from 123stitch.com! I’ll tell you about that in a minute as well.
So, the Big Disney project: I made a little progress on what is supposed to be Fawna the Good Fairy, who for some reason is mostly blue. I also put a little more gold into Cinderella’s hair at the bottom.
One of the new starts is the one I told you about last week. It’s a picture of Jake and Kaya of Metal Ass Gaming on youtube. This project is my first attempt at using 24 count fabric, which I am stitching one over one. So far, I’ve only done a bit of Kaya’s hair, but here’s what it looks like today.
I’ve also started yet another new project. This one should be a lot quicker, as it’s about 70×98 stitches, and NOT full coverage. It’s Elsa! In pixel form. I only have part of her her hair done as I’m typing this, so it looks a little weird, but oh well.
That order from 123stitch.com I told you about: I ordered two patterns. One is called “Pirate’s Creed” and says “The beatings will continue until morale improves”. I’m currently dyeing some fabric to use for it. At the moment, it’s mottled yellow, but I’m going to overdye it with tea to make it look more antique:
(Spooky is sitting on the fabric right now. Good thing it’s dry! lol)
The other pattern: “Antique Celtic Sampler”. I love old navigational charts, and those ‘here there be monsters’ kinds of things, and this pattern has both! It actually says that phrase, and it looks like the decorative bits on those old charts. After seeing Lindystitches’ work on it, I knew I had to make it! I don’t have any pictures of the fabric right now, so I’ll post that some other time. The two charts should be in tomorrow (Monday the 8th). I can’t wait! And so I close this blog post with kitten pictures, and my usual sign off:
That’s all for now. Until next time, Happy Stitching!
