Easter With A Mermaid

Hi, Happy Easter to all my stitchy friends 



I would like to thank the 3 lady's who helped me find a new place for threads and beads. 
I went with 123 stitch and hope I get them in the mail soon. 

So I'm still stitch the queen mermaid and here is a update on her


I'm hoping to stitch her over Easter. I want to move on to A Stitch In Time but right now I'm staying with my queen. 

I was thinking the other day as I was looking at a few blogs that we show our stitching but not what we use. Eg type, size of frame if we use one. A few charts I see like the huge heaven and earth ones I would love to know how people handle all the fabric. 

So I ask you out there on your blog if you have one to take a photo of your frames with your stitching and also how you hold them if not by hand. Pass the question along on your blogs? 

If you ask me I would say most of the time i use my hand to hold and stitch, I used to use a frame for the small ones but now I don't. For a really big heaven and earth one like a stitch in time I'm using a big frame here is a photo, it needs a like fix and then I hope to stitch again on it.


It's not a great photo but you get the idea.

Happy Easter and I hope you find lots of time to eat chocolate and stitch! Look forward to seeing how you all stitch.

Queen Mermaid

Hi, I would like to thank you for all your best wishes for my mum. 
She is doing ok, has a long list of things she can and can not do for a year but with my help she will be ok.

On to stitching

Here is before


And now


I ready like the colors and stitching her. 

I've joined up to Passione Ricamo Mystery Sal MO5. 
It starts 1st May. 

Don't know if I will be starting then.

I need help!

I've been trying to get the Kreinik and Petite Treasure braid rainbow galley threads and mill hill beads. The place I go to has closed down on me and now I don't know where to go.

Can anyone tell me of a place that sends to Australia or is in Australia that has all the above in one place and a big huge range? I don't want to go to 3 different places if possible. 

Please help.

That's it for now Happy Stitching

Plans change

Hi, I've been so busy and when I do have time I have not wanted to stitch on hide.
Not a lot has been done.

I say in my title plans change because I've been stitching mini pirate for the last 2 days when I can at night and I'm loving it.

So I know I would stitch charts by month, I'm not going to do that anymore but you will still see all the charts I said I was going to stitch this year and the new one hide n squeak will get done sometime this year too. That is my hope.

So update on hide n squeak 


My next post will be on mini pirate with a page finish.
Hope you all understand my change of plans, I did say I never keep them.

Happy stitching!!!

Hide Again

I'm still stitching on Hide n Squeak. 

I'm going to finish this chart before I move on even if it goes into February, which I think it will. 

I'm having a hard time just being able to stitch for any length of time, so it's a little here and there over the week, when I can fit it in.

So here is my weeks update


Happy Stitching!!!

New Start

Hi Yes a new start, I wanted something not so big and found out most charts and kits I have are just that, huge or big with lots of stitching. 

So this new start is from cross stitch crazy, I don't know what issue. I just keep the charts I like and thou away the magazine. 

It's called Hide n Squeak

Here is what I've got done this week


Not as much as I was hoping for but its a start.

I love this fabric, the photo doesn't really show you but it blue, green and purple. It from sew it all and called mist forest and it does have a forest feel to it. It 16 count Aida but it feels more like 18 so not sure on that. 

Chart was for a 14 count so it's not as big on my fabric and I'm ok with that.

I don't know if I will keep stitching this as Queen mermaid is calling, I think it's because it's the February stitch and next on my list, so I'm feeling a little bad not stitching her right now.

What would you do? Keep stitching hide n squeak or start back up with Queen mermaid?

Until next time
Happy Stitching!!!
