New Start, Finished

Hi Stitchy friends.

Today I finished my new start. I don't know why it took so long to stitch. I was hoping for only 3 days until done but it didn't work out that way, which is ok.

Barbara Ana Designs owl-o-ween scissor fob.


I'm not doing it as a scissor fob but maybe a pillow.
It's on 16 count Aida Haunted by picture this plus.


The writing looks better then in the photo, don't know why it's not really showing up better.
That's it for now.
 What to stitch now? Maybe another small new start and finish, we will see.
Until next week thanks for all your comments and happy stitching!!!

A Mix

Hi stitchers, 

I needed a new start on Monday so got out my fiberlicious treasures of the deep Sal that I went into at the start of the year. It was pricey so thought I better start it soon. 
I got the fiberlicious fabric and the beads too. I ended up not useing the fabric because of some of the dmc colors.

So I'm stitching treasures of the deep Sal on 16 count Aida colour cascade fabrics called sweet child of mine. I think I'm going to get more of it later, love the colour.


Not much stitched on it but I got a start. The blue bit is a little tail of March mermaid.

Next I got out moon sweet moon and did a little on the moon.
Here is before


And now not that you can really see any progress but it's there.


Next I got out my monthly word stitched in weeks dye works foliage. I'm thinking I might add a snowflake charm just above the u as its cold in July it's our winter.


And last I stitched my Lizzie Kate holiday spirit word


I love how it is turning out. I have 5 words to go.


I was brave and went to the dentist, now I'm not in any pain before going or now but after a very hard time doing a X-ray and being told she could give me a temporary fix but I would be in pain later on and have to come back for the next thing which would be a lot of money and me having to go back. I could not get out of there faster if I tried. So looks like later I'm going to get sedated hopefully when I call the dental hospital who took out my wisdom teeth. I can get it out totally which will be less stressful for me and save me a lot of money and hopefully never see a dentist again for years to come. I was so stressed that it took me 4 days to carm down. I'm still not in any pain and no I did not let the dentist give me the temporary fix. So I will see what happens, it's right at the back so it's not that bad.

Back to stitching 

Today I'm thinking of just picking a project and working on it until finished or I'm bored. I think I'm done with my rotation for a while. I don't know maybe I will just leave it all open and say I will stitch on what I want until I what. I keep going back to the wips in it after all.

Thank you for all your nice comments on my finish in my last post, it was a fun stitch when I got the big scissors done. I would hate to be the little people in the little houses with a big lady with scissors running around, don't think they would leave the house. Ha ha 

I finding out I have a few charts with scissors in them, I don't know why.

Untill next week and who knows what I will stitch, I need to stop making plans really.
 Happy stitching!!

On A Roll With Another Finish

Hi stitchers, how was your week? My stitchy week was great, I have a finish today.

My life week went down hill. I'm having to go to the dentist next week and I'm freaked out about it. Needles and dentists are my fears and when I say freaked out I mean really fearful of going. I'm fine after, even if I'm in pain but the going and doing... Oh help.

Anyway My finish was Let It Snow by Barbara Anna Designs. 
I used 18 count Aida Forget me not blue by sew it all
I only changed the date from1839 to 2018 and I think I did a good job doing it. Everything else was called for. 

Here is before


And my finish


The white did not show up as much on the blue as I would have liked but it's brighter then the photo.

I don't know how my stitching will go next week, it's words week but I think I might charge that this month. See what happens. Happy Stitching!!!

Another Finish

Hi stitchers, this week I got another finish!. Yay.

Number 25 from my 25 days of cross stitch

Best friend Santa by Jim shore / mill hill

Here is before


And finished 


Will go on the Christmas tree this year.

Next I picked number 10 from my 25 days of cross stitch

Let it snow by Barbara Ana Designs

Here is what It will look like sorry took the photo a little far away


Before


And now


This week was to be my pirate but I'm finding lately that I'm going back to my old ways before my rotation. That's pick a project I want to stitch and stitch it until done or I get bored with it and pick another. The last few finished, I've not wanted to stop stitching until they were done. I didn't want to work on anything else or move on as a rotation is all about. So I'm just going to go with it. I do know my words week will stay the first week of every month but the rest can always be moved around or changed. See where my stitching takes me.

So let it snow is what I'm stitching this week and maybe I can show another finish soon. I'm loving getting my Wips done.

Until next time everyone happy stitching!!!

Smalls Sal May

Hi stitchers.

If you have followed my blog you have seen everything I'm about to show you for the smalls Sal. 
Just saying!

Before I show off the photos. 

This week I saw a beautiful necklace  in the window of a jewelry store and went inside for the price. It was $250 or $189.00 US for my blogging friends and I walked out without the necklace. 
It got me thinking. I would pay that and more on cross stitch but not on jewelry. 
So I ask you? Are you the same, have you gone in a store, seen something you like but think not for that price but if it's cross stitch or something to do with cross stitch just buy it?

I'm curious!

Now onto my May smalls Sal

My mill hill kit Boris the bat


My monthly which I used Gloriana thead Olallieberry from a stitchy box it's a dark purple.


3 little words by Lizzie Kate 



And holiday spirit by Lizzie Kate 



That's it. Happy Stitching!!
