life... unscripted...

I’m nearing the finish line on this project and I’m pretty excited! I think it’s the “Beguiling Tiger” kit from Dimensions. I’m not the biggest fan of commercial kits, but this guy was too cute to pass up.

I actually started it months ago but I put it down for a while because I got a little bored and wanted to start other things. However, I’m forcing myself to finish it since it is going to a friend and because I promised myself that I wouldn’t start a new project until I finished an older WIP… and you can guess that I already have something else waiting in the wings ;-)

I posted this last night when I finished it, but I’m really fucking proud of myself for finally getting it done. This is almost 4 years worth of work right here. Many, many, many hours of hand cramps and eye strains and tangled floss. It’s the first cross stitch I’ve ever finished. The final stretch of work on it took me almost 12 hours yesterday.

Congrats, this is really cute! I’m also cross stitching a tiger… I’ll try post a WIP soon.

"It’s funny.  You only really know what someone thinks of you when you know what lies they’ve told you.  You say you’ve seen wonders; you’ve seen amazing things and you’ve kept them from me.  So, what do you think of me, Clara?"

This was like a punch in the gut. I also think it’s completely true.

So many French knots! I wouldn’t be able to do it.

Sorry for the less than stellar pics, but I really wanted to post my most recent finish without going through the hassle of editing pics.

Two friends from college recently got married and I wanted to make something to commemorate the happy occasion. So I decided to create own pattern and run with it since I didn’t like any of the other patterns I’d seen for sale. I went with their wedding colors and this is what I came up with. Pretty cute right?

I crave space. It charges my batteries. It helps me breathe. Being around people can be so exhausting, because most of them love to take and barely know how to give - except for a rare few.

I wish people would understand this.

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.
