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.
Stitch From Stash Report:
Money Spent: $1.07 on detritus silk bags from Hand Dyed Fibers (thank goodness for Christmas money otherwise I would have been over my allowance).
WIPs getting love: 1
New starts: 1
WIP Progress: No Vacancy by Marjolein Bastin
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.
No Vacancy by Marjolein Bastin
32 count Antique White Linen
Project started Dec. 19, 2012
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:
- No Vacancy by Marjolein Bastin
- Summer by Bent Creek (Making up the title because the pattern is at work)
- 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:
- Turtles All the Way Down by Ink Circles
- Boo-ltimore by Ink Circles
- The Smell of Sulfur by Ink Circles
- Holiday Magick by Ink Circles
- Love Letters – Art Nouveau by Ink Circles
- Random Ornament 1
- Random Ornament 2
- Random Ornament 3
- Happy Hunting by Bent Creek
- Spells’ Store by The Primitive Hare
- What ever I want too!
