Some Finishes

Hello again. I suck at blogging…. Here are two finishes to appease you.

The first is by Ink Circles. It was stitched on Tiger Tail fabric by Stab n Stitch. The colors are much more vibrant in person. I used DMC 310 (black) since the fabric is colorful and the design is busy.

The next piece is Midnight Ride by Blackbird Designs. I left off the lettering because I am just not into alphabets appearing randomly on designs. Not my style… Which is funny because I plan on starting Love Letters: Art Nouveau  by Ink Circles soon. Anyways, this piece was stitched on 40 count Muffin Top fabric by HDF (Vikki Clayton hand Dyed Fibers) using HDF dark grey floss from a detritus bag, Rubbed Orange, and Rubbed Hare. None of these items are available anymore with the exception of the chart.

Also, I am happy that I can read html code because Word Press was being a pain today for some reason.

So I did not spend any money this month… But I have had little time to stitch. Husband gave me a lovely stitching related Valentine gift but it did not arrive until this month. I will post a picture next blog post. So here is my update on the birdies.

A New Start: Silent Night by Lizzie Kate

A New Start: Silent Night by Lizzie Kate

The fibers were all subbed from my Vikki Clayton/Hand Dyed Fiber detritus packs on an unknown piece of fabric I had kickin’ around. I normally don’t stitch Lizzie Kate stuff but I thought this was cute… I like owls. Well birds in general. The two sets of progress pics are not my usual types of projects. I guess I have been in a birdie sort of mood lately. I think my next start will be Turtles All the Way Down by Ink Circles. I like quirky projects.

I love the eggs in the Marjolein Bastin designs. This design is a fairly straightforward stitch. No pesky blends or partial stitches.

Stitching Update

So my attempt at blogging back in 2012 was a dismal failure. So here I am for round two. I actually finished Love Letters and several other projects.

For 2014 I would like to finish:

  1. No Vacancy by Marjolein Bastin
  2. Summer by Bent Creek (Making up the title because the pattern is at work)
  3. Little Snapdragon by Kustom Kraft

I have a ton of other WIPs but frankly if I can get those done I will be so very happy. I am all about stitching what makes me happy right now. Screw all of my WIPs! They can bite me. I am stitching what I want to when I want to (I am so mature…). After all, anytime I set up goals for stitching I fail miserably.

For 2014 I would like to start:

  1.  Turtles All the Way Down by Ink Circles
  2. Boo-ltimore by Ink Circles
  3.  The Smell of Sulfur by Ink Circles
  4. Holiday Magick by Ink Circles
  5.  Love Letters – Art Nouveau by Ink Circles
  6.  Random Ornament 1
  7.  Random Ornament 2
  8. Random Ornament 3
  9. Happy Hunting by Bent Creek
  10. Spells’ Store by The Primitive Hare
  11. What ever I want too!
