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.

Almost at the finish line. I should have finished this about two weeks ago, but life got in the way. 

Regardless, I think this little guy is turning out awesome and I’m kinda sad that I’ll be giving him away…. But oh well, I’m ready to move on to the next thing.

Dany Day 54

After having to take a break, I’m finally back to work on my Dany cross stitch.

It pains me to say that I had to start using a hoop… I hate using a hoop so much (bc of the wrinkles and such), but it’s too just too big now to keep using the frame.

Why don’t you try a Q-Snap frame stitchyrestingface? I tend to use Q-Snaps over hoops precisely because of the wrinkles… and I find them easier to hold.

Anxiety is not rude. Depression is not selfish. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Eating disorders are not a choice. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not crazy. Mental illness isn’t self-centred, anymore than cancer is self-centred. It’s a medical illness.
