Fight the Fairies!

I mean. . . Return of the Fairies! I finished last week’s project:

You know I’m glad to finished with that.

 

So I started to work on Firefly Fairies again:

And because I could, I started a new project!

It’s Garfield! The patterns suggests to backstitch everything before you cross stitch, and then back stitch again when you’re done, so I did that. It’s a bit easier to know where the stitches go without constantly consulting the pattern, but I know those of us who dislike backstitching will NOT go for this method lol

 

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

There can be only one

One update today. The same as last week. Thankfully, it should only take me until tonight to finally finish it.

I added two ‘broken’ bulbs to look like the one Santa stuck his hand in during the opening animated sequence of the movie. After this, I have an idea of what I want to work on, and I hope they all work up fast.

 

Now for a question: Have you finished all your Christmas shopping/stitching? Have you yet to start? Let me know in the comments below!

 

Until next time, Happy Stitching!

Just one update today

Man, this project is taking way longer than I thought it would. I’ve only just gotten up to the top portion, where the first half of the quote will be, last night. I have that, and the top of the border left to stitch, and then I’m done. Here’s the picture proof:

I do, however, have an adorable picture of Crookshanks, who somehow got into a trick-or-treating bucket:

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

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

With finishes galore!

I have a few finishes this week! First is Jack:

Second is the Supernatural piece:

Third (and the last finish of the week) is a Christmas Vacation piece (pattern from etsy)

For the past couple of days, I’ve been working on the second Christmas Vacation piece. I’ve messed up a few times, but it still looks okay:

Lastly, don’t forget that I’m having a sale for the remainder of the month in my etsy store. 30% off everything but custom patterns! 

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

A finish, an near finish, and some plans

I finished the Christmas pattern last week! 

Merry Christmas by Elizabeth Designs:

With that finished, I was going to work more on Firefly Fairies, but I’ve temporarily lost interest in that…. so I went on to what I feel is slightly more important: Christmas presents! I’m almost finished with the first one, which is Jack Skellington for my boyfriend (free pattern from Sprite Stitch):

As soon as I’m finished with it, I’ll work on one for a friend who loves Supernatural as much as I do. I don’t have a picture of what it will look like, but it’s going to be a stitched, short version of the rite of exorcism, and I’m going to burn the fabric a little, and maybe splatter red paint or dye on it to look like blood. It’s going to be great!

I also have a picture of Spooky being adorable and stopping me from stitching.

Lastly, don’t forget that I now have 28 count evenweave in my Etsy store and I’ll be having a cyber-week sale on most items in the shop!

 

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

‘Tis the season

Now that Halloween is over, it’s become the season for Christmas stitching! Admittedly, I’m not feeling the spirit. Stitching progress has been minimal, and the cats are giving me anxiety. I’ll write the reason why at the end of this post, in case you’re only here for the stitching.

I got a little bit done on Firefly Fairies:

The Merry Christmas Sampler is surprisingly close to a finish:

That’s all for stitching-stuff. Until next time, Happy Stitching!

 

 

 

About the cats:

You see, three weeks ago, Crookshanks got sick. I took him to the vet, and he got better. A week later both cats got their annual shots. Since then they’ve been fine. Except a few days ago, they started eating less. Now they’re going to the litter box less (they aren’t going outside of it, they’re just going less). They seem otherwise fine, but this has got me all tied up in knots, especially since I know I can’t afford to take them to the vet again right now. As a normally anxious person who lost my dog after he stopped eating and stopped going to the bathroom last year, this really has me hovering near anxiety attack levels for a couple days now.
