Finished Tiger

I was in a panic for nothing. 
All I could see was Xmas getting closer and closer and I had/have so much to do.

Last night I finished Tiger Reflection and now I can relax. 


Now what to stitch, so many I can now pick from.

Happy Stitching!!!

Will I make it?

Hi all still stitching the tiger. 

Will I make it on time? I don't know, 

I'm hoping for the 7th dec done but if not max is the 15th dec? I really don't want to put a iou in a Xmas card.

Might need a few late nights see how it goes. 

So far its just over half way maybe. I will try and do a bit this weekend.

I will be so happy when this one is done, I hate putting myself on a timetable for my stitching.

The good news is I'm still stitching on the tiger when I can, as it's been busy around here. 

The bad news is I don't want to stitch the tiger but on my mini pirate and I want to color but if I'm to make the tiger a Xmas gift it's what I got to stitch/do right now. Ah.

Anyway here is the update 

Happy Stitching!!!

Again With The Tiger

Yes I'm still stitching the tiger. 
I'm now use to the black fabric and my stitching is back to normal speed, I think.
I'm happy with what I've done this week and I will do more today.

You can now see the tiger. Happy Stitching!!!

Halloween with a Tiger

Hi, happy Halloween 

Thank for all your nice comments on my fairy.

On the weekend I tried to start tiger reflection but was getting called away by family. 

Here is how it looks now, all the darker green I stitched this weekend. 

Stitching on black has slowed my stitching down. I have a white table which helps to find the holes. Give me any color fabric but black ha ha. I think it will look great when done but I still can not really get into this chart / kit and I think it's because of the black fabric. I will still try and keep going.

Until next time Happy Scary Stitching!!!

Happy Dance

Hi all, yes I have a finish.

I'm so happy Autumn Fairy is now off my to do list!

It felt like all the details eg backstitch and beads took longer to do then the cross stitch. 
I'm all backstitched out let me tell you. All the details bring the fairy to life I think.

If you know this chart you will see I left out a little on the kreinik braid backstitch as to me it was too much, I like how it turned out.

Two down and two to go on this set I've also stitch up summer.

So the photos

Next up is tiger reflection. I don't want to stitch it right now but it works out as a Christmas gift if I can stitch it in time. Wish me luck! Happy Stitching!!!

My newsagent lady asked me if i would stitch the following for her, I said sure.
It was a free gift from cross stitch crazy mag. She also gave me one to stitch for myself but I never stitch something twice, it's just my thing. 

So if you would like to stitch home sweet home let me know and I can send it to you, if more then one person I will just pick one of you.

Happy Stitching!!!
