My Time Stitching

And whatever else I have been up to…

Cross Stitching, Beading and Crocheting, Oh My!

I have forced myself to put down Mirabilia‘s Raven Queen to get back to beading on mermaid.  This is how she looked last night after 10 evenings of stitching:

I know it’s not much, but it is a pretty good start.  I have enjoyed stitching on her and will get back to her real soon.  Right now I am getting to the beading on PR Under the Moonlight.  Here is what I did last night:

beading on Under the Moonlight

There are going to be a lot of beads on this project!  I managed to make them fit along the top border by omitting a few and and then taking my needle through the entire length to try to get them as straight as I could.  The corners were easy and look very cool.

I hope to get a lot of beads stitched on tonight.  Over the weekend I started another project.  I know, like I really need another project.  But it’s not a cross stitch project.  It’s a crochet project 🙂

Crochet Stripey Blanket

I have been wanting to do a crochet project for quite some time now.  After seeing the Citrus Stripe Blanket on Not Your Average Crochet, I knew it was time to get started.  My Step-Mom taught me to crochet when I was 12.  And I was pretty good at making ripple afghans and over the years, a lot of Bed dolls.  But I wanted to get that hook out and do something current and have a “quick, go-to project, that can go anywhere”. The only problem is, I can’t remember a lot of how to connect rows and turning is the biggest problem for me.  So, I started with the peach stripe, and decided to sign up for a crochet class.  I go next week at a local yarn shop.  By then the other colors of yarn that I ordered should be in and I can continue on with this baby blanket.

So, that is all of my stitchings for this week.  What are you stitching on?
