I stopped my rotation and got a finish last weekend. Yay me!
59 Wips and counting. I still want to start things.
To the beach and back by needle bling designs.
I used waterlilies 207 for the words ( leftover). Dmc for the rest. Changed the green to purple because of the green in the words and added charms I got from a stitchy box, one dolphin and one seahorse.
Stitched on 16ct Aida Lambswool.
Here it is
Next I picked up sirena by Lila's studio, only a day on her.
I then got emailing to Alicia The crafty princess. I pushed her into doing a blog post that she wanted to do anyway and she got me motivated to work on mini pirate. I will show in a bit.
As I want to start a few heaven and earth design charts in 2019. You only live once so why not.
Alicia has been trying to help me with evenweave. Yap I'm going to the dark side lol.
My next head will be on evenweave but I've got to see what I like. Aida is so easy for a head it's 18 count, 2 over 1 but with evenweave you have 1 over 1, 2 over 1, 2 over 2 and 1 over 2 all on the same fabric be it 25 ct to 40 I think it goes to. Hard on a newbie.
Alicia the lovely lady is sending me 3, yes 3 counts of evenweave fabric to try. I still don't know what to say but thank you again Alicia and I hope you don't mind me telling everyone how helpful and amazing you have been to me this week. A true stitchy friend. I don't have anyone to ask but for the friends I make on my blog. Thank you again.
Here is mini pirate before
And now, that's the bottom on this page, but as you can see I've still got a lot to do.
Which is why I'm thinking every week I will be working on my pirate with one other Wip, so I get a break from her, until she is done. The other wip can be anything. Still hopeful to get her done by the end of the year. Wish me luck.
I think that's it. Until next week happy stitching everyone!!!
