Today is my 3 year anniversary since starting my stitchy blog. It has been a fun ride and I have met so many wonderful people. I started this blog as a way to keep track of my projects and share my passion for stitching. So, to celebrate my anniversary, I have a nice little giveaway that you can win. Simply leave me a comment on this post telling me which of my blog posts is your favorite or which one of my projects is your favorite. I will draw one name to win the following prize:
The prize package includes a piece of 32ct Lugana Solo from Silkweaver measuring 16 x 25 ( a definite mistake in ordering as I don’t stitch on 32ct, but the fabric is beautiful!), The February 2015 issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine (I renewed my subscription and received this one after I had purchased it) My favorite model stitcher stitched the cover 😉 A package of DMC Color Variations-the Blue Lagoon Collection. I liked the colors so much I purchased it twice; a couple of Weeks Dye Works threads and 3 packages of Mill Hill beads.
So leave me a comment on this post by March 31, 2015 and I will draw a name from all entries on April 1 and it won’t be a joke 🙂
Last night I started a new project; Moon Flowers by Mirabilia. I am stitching her on 16ct Aida Black Magic by Under the Sea fabrics. This fabric turned out exactly how I envisioned it for Moon Flowers. I am typically not a dark fabric kind of gal, but when I first saw Moon Flowers, I knew Black Magic would be the perfect fabric. And Leslie didn’t disappoint. I am so excited to start stitching on this one. What new project are you looking forward to getting started on?
Last night I completed section 11 on the Passione Ricamo Mystery SAL. Just in time for section 12 to be released on Monday. It will be more hair. We have already been given a sneak peek. I am so proud of myself for keeping up on this one. I can’t wait to see the mermaid come to life.
I have to share something my hubby purchased for me this week.
It is a beautiful trunk. He bought it at Joann Fabrics. And guess what I put inside??
FABRIC! Yep, all of my Hand Dyes by Stephanie, Under The Sea fabrics, Picture This Plus fabrics and a few Sunny Dyes fabrics and a couple of afghans and towels that can be stitched on. All of my Silk Weaver fabrics are in another container. I am so geeked about my new Trunk of Fabrics! And as you can see, I have room to grow 😉
What are you stitching on today?
I finished Mirabilia’s Siren and the Shipwreck last night and just LOVE how she turned out.
Her colors are so beautiful and that chandelier is so full of beads that make it sparkle so beautifully when the light hits it just right. If you click on the second picture, I swear it looks like the chandelier is lit up! I am so happy for this finish. Can’t wait to get her framed and then I will have to find a place to hang her. I stitched her on 16 ct Aida Under The Sea by Sunny Dyes Fabrics.
What are you hoping to finish soon?
