My Time Stitching

And whatever else I have been up to…

Another Pidge scarf off the Needles

I finished another Pidge scarf for Sue last night.

Gold Pidge

This one was made with a worsted weight yarn by Berroco called Flicker.  While this pattern calls for a Bulky weight yarn, I think it turned out very nice.  I enjoyed working with this yarn.  It had some elasticity to it and feels quite soft and spongy.  It also has flecks of  gold glitter in  it which you probably can’t see  in this photo.  The antique, gold buttons that Sue chose,  look perfect on this piece.  I am working on finishing things before the holidays.  Now on to the next project that needs to get done.  What are you trying to finish before the holidays?

A Butterfly finish and some Goodies

I’m so happy!  I have a finish!  And by today’s deadline for mailing, too!  Yay!  I stitched Joan Elliott’s  Butterfly Fairy on Rachel’s Round Robin.  She turned out lovely!

Butterfly Fairy on Rachel's RRHer hair was a crazy mess and I didn’t think I would ever get it done, but I did and it’s lovely.  Hubby really likes this one and has asked that I stitch in full.  I do believe he said that about the last JE fairy I stitched.  I will add it to my future list of things to do 🙂

Here is the RR in full:

Rachel's RRIt’s a beautiful piece and Rachel is going to love it when she sees it.  So many sparkly beads!  Amazing!

I received this lovely piece of fabric in my mailbox yesterday:

Lunar EclipseIt’s Lunar Eclipse 16 ct Aida by Stephanie. I can’t wait to see what I end up putting on this one.  Though it’s really more green than blue.

I also received these beauties from Silkweaver on Monday:

More Silkweaver stashFrom top to bottom we have: Hocus Pocus 14ct Aida, Spellbound in 18ct Aida which I plan to use for The Gift, Spooky Day Gray in 14ct Aida, Witch’s Brew in 14 ct Aida and Spooky Day Grey in 28ct Lugana.  They are all lovely.

Last night I put a few stitches into Ella after finishing Butterfly Fairy.  It was a nice change.  Especially to work on Aida again.  Well, that’s all for today.  I’d love to hear what you are working on or what goodies you have acquired lately.

Lots of new stash, but no new finish

I am working on Rachel’s RR and as soon as I get it finished I will post a picture. Now that I am about done with the hair, it may go quicker.  I have recently acquired so much new stash, I don’t know where to begin…Yes I do.  A stitchy gift from my BSF (Best Stitching Friend)

Gift from my bestieThis cute little packaged arrive so pretty! Johanna sent it to me as a thank you for stitching the Royal Holiday on her Queen RR.  Isn’t she a sweetie?  Here is what was inside:

gift 3Sorry about the blurry photo.  I’ve always wanted to do a sweetheart tree design, but never knew which one do do.  Now I have the perfect one.  Complete with a key charm inside. The colors are beautiful.  I am hoping that when I stitch this up, I can finish it just like the picture.  I may have to get some help with that.

Next is last month’s Fabric of the Month from Stephanie. It is called Bewitched.

Bewitched 16 ct AidaIt is 16ct Aida and it is BEAUTIFUL!!  I love the colors in it.  Can’t wait to find something special to stitch on this baby!

I received this pattern in the mail:

The Gift pattern

It is a gorgeous pattern I saw on Patricia’s facebook page.  There is a mermaid in it.  I just had to have it. And hubby likes Dragons, so it is the perfect combination in a cross stitch pattern 🙂  I picked up a piece of fabric on Silweaver’s auctions last week and I am hoping it will be perfect for this pattern.  If you are interested in this pattern, you can contact the designer Particia Aikin by email at particiaallisonarts@hotmail.com  I can’t wait to stitch this one up.

And last I have a knit project I picked up this last weekend:

beaded scarf projectHubby and I stopped at a local knit shop on our day out this weekend and I found a partially knittied beaded scarf sitting on a shelf at the shop.  It was pink, so you know I had to see what it was all about.  It wasn’t even half knitted, but it was so heavy with the beads.  I loved it!  And had to have one!  They didn’t sell the yarn used anymore, so I decided to go with a cream yarn.  That will go well with my red coat.  At Joann’s I found some clear beads with a copper looking center that I thought would look good with the cream yarn.  It’s done on a size 5 needle, so I’m sure it will take me a while to knit.  Someday I will start it and it will be beautiful and sparkly when it is finished.

So, that is all of my new stash as of late.  Still working on some pidge scarves as well as Rachel’s RR. It is due in the mail next Wednesday, so I had better get to stitching a little faster.  Thank you for stopping by and seeing what I have been up to.  What have you added to your stash lately?

A Royal Finish and Ella Day

In my time away, I actually had a finish.

Royal Holiday completedI stitched Royal Holiday on Johanna’s Large Stitch Mira.  She turned out so Regal and elegant.  The entire piece is just gorgeous and I have to say that I would have loved to have kept it for myself.  One day I plan to stitch this design myself.  Here is the piece in it’s entirety.

Johannas Large Stitch Mira completedLast week I received this in the mail:

Ella and Pandora fabricSo I designated yesterday as “Ella Day”.  Here is a close up of the design and if you know me, then you know why I had to start stitching on her right away.

Ella patternYes, she has a frog!  She is the Princess and the Frog and her name is Ella.  My favorite Princess and frog 🙂  So yesterday I started stitching Ella on Stephanie’s hand dyed Pandora 16 ct Aida.  Here is what I accomplished yesterday on Ella Day:

Start on EllaNot much.  Lots of yellows.  But I had been itching to start something new and now I have to put her aside.  I am currently stitching on Rachel’s RR and I have a couple of other projects that I need to finish and work on.  But when I get bored with a design and need a pick-me-up, I will be pulling Ella out to give her some love.  Thank you for visiting me to see what I have been up to.  What are you working on?
