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.
Hi, sorry I have not posted in a few weeks, so not like me.
My mum has been in and out of hospital like a yo yo since December. She will be having major surgery this Thursday so it might be a while before I can post again.
On to the good news in my family, we have a new baby girl added. My niece had her 2nd baby, she now has one of each a boy called Rivah and a new girl called Savannah born 7th March, who I did bear for baby.
Now it's all done.
I did a little stitching on mini pirate
Here is before
Right now I've been stitching the queen mermaid and I really like it so I'm going to keep going.
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.
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?
