life... unscripted...
Here’s a little quickie for you guys. I actually stitched this up months ago, but never got around to posting it. However, I got to thinking about Fall and the upcoming holidays, so I wanted to share this. 

Isn’t he cute?! Gobble gobble!!!

A cry for help that no one hears.

Ahhh, needlepoint. It’s been a while! But all of a sudden I got inspired to work on this beautiful angel again after a lengthy hiatus. I don’t know the name of the artist, but I got the canvas at my local needlepoint shop, The Elegant Needle. Please visit it if you’re ever in the Baton Rouge area since its a totally awesome shop.

I really wanted this piece to be visually interesting so I’m really going for it with my thread and stitch choices (wait until you see her hair). It’s also rather large, so I needed to do something that wouldn’t bore me to death.

Let me know what you think and as always, check out my “itiskismet stitches” tag to see what else I’ve been working on.

I’ve been meaning to post WIPs for days but I just never got around to it…. And now I’m done stitching the whole thing… anyways… here’s the scoop:

I recently went to New Orleans and visited a little shop in the French Quarter called The Quarter Stitch. They focus on knitting and needlepoint, but I found some cool cross stitch kits and I found that I couldn’t help but buy one.

The pattern is Jackson Square by Katherine E. Andersen. I’d never stitched a vintage pattern and this was too cute to pass up. I was generally pleased with the kit, but the aida was crappy and the grid lines on the pattern were barely visible. I googled the pattern and found much better versions for sale so I was kinda pissed that I got what looked like a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy. I feel like I kinda got ripped off. Regardless, I like the way this project turned out and now I just have to figure out what to do with it.

Oh yeah! I finished the back-stitch and beading on Mr. Sun.

Look at that crazy metallic floss.

This is awesome!

Finished stitching Something Wicked, a La D Da design, on gold fabric with DMC threads. So glad that witch boot is finished!

This turned out awesome. I’d love to stitch this.

Well, it’s alright up until the eyebrows.

His eyebrow game went from none to some - and then some!

My favorite moment of the episode.

Harry Potter cast for Empire

Why am I seeing this for the very first time?!?!

It’s done and I’m totally pleased with the result! :-D I really love how the “candy corn” turned out. After I iron it and get a little frame, this little bat will be ready to go to it’s new home. 
Moving on… I already started a new cross stitch project… I’ll be working on my first project that’s based on a vintage pattern. Once I make a little progress, I’ll post some pics and some thoughts… since I’m not entirely crazy about it. I’ll also be picking up some other projects that I’ve been neglecting.
