Hi! I’m still stitching along with a ton of other things; stamping, scrapbooking, putting pages in albums, and reading. But let me show you how my stitching is going on the Mira Mystery. I am finished section 1! Finally! Took me about a month, but I finally can move onto section 2. Here is how it looked last night:
While the above picture shows the stitching colors better, the photo below shows how the fabric actually looks:
I have seen the mystery stitched in full by other stitchers on the facebook group, and she is a beauty! Just wait until you see that sweet face!
I also finished this yesterday:
The baby shower is on Saturday, so I finished in great time. I really love how this turned out! The pattern is beautiful and while I didn’t think the colors would be great together when I started, I am loving them now.
So it is all ready to be packaged up. Just have to add a tag and washing instructions. I also made a card to match.
The nursery theme is owls in these colors, so this card is perfect.
So that is what I have been working on this week. What have you been creating?
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:
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 🙂
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?
