My Time Stitching

And whatever else I have been up to…

Updated Fabric Stash

I promised someone that I would do an updated post of my hand dyed fabric stash. So Diya, this is especially for you 🙂

Here are all of my beauties from Hand Dyed Fabrics By Stephanie.  She is my favorite dyer and I love collecting her FOTM every month.  Several of her fabrics are on scroll frames being stitched on.  They are all so beautiful.

This is a smaller pile of prettiest.   There are fabrics here from Polstitches, Picture This Plus, Sunny Dyes Fabrics and Under The Sea Fabrics.  All are also very pretty.

Seeing the fabrics standing was a much better way of organizing them, rather than having them stacked, which is how I had them before I pulled them out to do this post.  So I have put them back into my trunk so that I can see them all at a glance.  How pretty!  And now it will be much easier to see what I have when looking for a fabric for a design 🙂

WIN_20150622_151610 (2)This is my biggest stash bin.  These are all from Silkweaver fabrics.  Some are smaller pieces, but it is nice to have a piece in Aida so I can see how it takes the dye. Most dyers don’t show their dyed fabrics on Aida, which is what I like to use.

So there you have it.  I guess you could say that I have a bit of a fabric hoarding problem 😉 Oh well.  I could do worse things.  Fabric and color make me happy.  What is in your favorite stash?

So Much Stitching in My Head!

I know, weird title.  But it’s true.  I have so many projects I want to do and in my head I can see myself stitching on all of them.  But in reality I can only stitch on one project at a time.  So, what have I been stitching on? Well, I finished the last section of Under The Moonlight SAL by Passione RicamoRicamo and have started the beading.

It is a very small bead start as there are a lot of beads on this project.  I love beading and couldn’t wait to get to this point, but then I was distracted!  By this:

Yep!  Miss Nora did again. Another gorgeous design! This one is The Raven Queen by Mirabilia  and was released on June 15.  I ordered her and all her pretties right away from Stitches N Things and picked her up on Saturday!  I played in the Viewer on Monday and Tuesday, so I already had my fabric picked out from my stash. I decided on Twixt N Tween 16ct Aida from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanhie Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.  Here is my layover:

Raven Queen on Twixt N Tween

I LOVE it!  I think she will look fabulous! Here is my floss toss:

I was so excited to get her and all her goodies, that I started her on Saturday night.  Here is my progress after last night:

Not much, but a start.  I will stitch on her for a few days and then force myself to put her down and work on beading the mermaid.  I also picked up this sweet pattern by Hinzeit; She Sells Sea Shells.

It came with a little package of real seashells and a little blue star fish, but somehow the bag was open and the embellishment package fell out at the cross stitch store. LouAnn knew it must have been mine, so she called to let me know she has it for me and I will pick it up when I go back to pick up the little Nimue fairy framing, which has to be sent back.  There was a little piece of plastic behind the glass at the bottom of the framing.  It looks like it might be a broken piece of a spacer.  So I will show pictures of her when I pick her up next time.

So… what projects are calling your name these days?
