Today we moved to level 2 but I’m not going to dwell on that ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m going to focus on my stuff instead.ย  Do a wee round up of projects completed over the past few months ๐Ÿ™‚ I really do want to get back into the habit of this ๐Ÿ™‚

My first grandbaby was born about this time last year.ย  I made this for her room ๐Ÿ™‚ Its a free pattern from a wonderful artist.ย  If you want to follow her she is on Facebook as Cross stitch patterns by Maria Brovko https://www.facebook.com/groups/CutePatternsByMaria/

My brother turned 40 & got married on the same night.ย  This was my present to them.ย  I just love it! The colours are stunning when you see it in real life. It’s an Etsy pattern and I will make it again one day for my own home ๐Ÿ™‚ https://www.etsy.com/nz/listing/518613247/when-life-gives-you-lemons-cross-stitch

Sorry if this offends anyone.ย  A very good friend of mine got diagnosed with cervical cancer early last year.ย  It was very very aggressive and she only had a small chance of survival but she did it.ย  I made this for her during that time. Again it was an Etsy pattern https://www.etsy.com/nz/listing/464519735/cross-stitch-pattern-fuck-cancer-raise?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=fuck+cancer&ref=sr_gallery-1-30&organic_search_click=1

I do very intense full coverage cross stitches most of the time.ย  They are extremely time consuming with most of them taking at least 3 years to stitch.ย  They are also very fatiguing to stitch.ย  Due to this, every so often I need a wee break which I am currently doing now.ย  I’ve found a wonderful designer called The Witchy Stitcher and she does some awesome gothic horror works with fairly simple designs.ย  I’m not usually a huge fan of the simple designs but I love hers.ย  I stumbled on her by accident when one of my stitching groups were talking about something called the Universal Monsters SAL (Stitchย  A Long) which was about to start and featured, that’s right, the old school Universal movie monsters.ย  I joined up and loved it! Had a absolute ball stitching it and when finished it went to live with my cousins 5 year old boy who also loves it ๐Ÿ™‚

I had that much fun stitching this that I promptly signed up for the next one featuring more modern movie monsters, Chopping Mall.ย  I’ve very nearly finished this one ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m only doing snapshots of this one at the moment as its more fun for the big reveal at the end ๐Ÿ˜‰ If your interested this link will take you to both SAL’s ๐Ÿ™‚ https://www.thewitchystitcher.com/sals

Last, but not least, where I got to with Warm My Heart before I needed a wee break.ย  This is about halfway done now.

Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite but I'm open to anything a little quirky that needs stitching.
