Good morning, blogging friends. Another cold, cloudy day here and snow on the way…in April! Though that is not so unusual here in Michigan. But I was really hoping for Spring.
I pulled names for my blogaversary give-away and they are as follows:
The Knitting give-away: Nicola Florence
Cross Stitch give-away: Gretchen Parker
Congratulations, ladies. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your addresses and I will get your prizes out to you. So sorry for the delay.
Now for an update on my stitching. I have been steadily stitching on Ella and am making pretty good progress on her.
I am almost finished with the ruffles and then I can move onto her waist and arms and I am so excited!! She is really beginning to come alive.
In case you are seeing her for the first time, she is Ella, the Frog Princess by Mirabilia. I am stitching her on 16ct Aida Pandora from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie. Just LOVE how she is turning out.
I also have a new app I have been playing with on my phone. It is called Xstitch. Have you heard of it?
I heard about it in one of the facebook groups and it sounded like something I needed. So I bought it for $2.99 and started playing around with it. It was a little confusing, because I wanted it to do somethings a little different. You can keep track of your WIP’s and supplies, keep an inventory of fabrics and threads you have. It doesn’t have a list for Sullivan Threads or Mill Hill beads and treasures. You can keep track of charts and kits and wish lists. So I have been adding things little by little to the app so I can keep track of what I am working on, and where all of my threads are. I also am going to add all of my inventory and projects that I have kitted up and ready to go and to keep track of charts I have and any supplies that I have for that chart. It will be nice when I go to the cross stitch store, too. I can keep a shopping list on it, too. So have you heard of this app or are you using it? What do you think of it?
