October Smalls Check In...

Happy Friday!

Yesterday was check-in day for the Smalls Stitch Along...
(not too bad, only one day late)

The Smalls SAL is run by Heather at Stitching Lotus and you can find out more about the stitch along here:

Here is my October Small..
Fully finished witchy bell pull, complete with burnt edges...
(The pattern is called Miss Grimilde and it is by The Primitive Hare on Etsy.)

Love how this one came out and I am really enjoying trying to come up with interesting and unique ways to finish my pieces.

----
A quick look at some other pieces that I have been stitching on lately...

Witch House, by Barbara Ana Designs
Really hoping to have this one completed by this weekend, so I can fully finish it and display it for a few days, before Halloween is over...

Autumn, by thequeenbeehandmade on Etsy
Hoping to have this one finished soon, too, but there is still a fair amount of stitching left...
...so, I will try my best.

Mini Midnight Manor, by Waxing Moon Designs on Etsy

I have also started dying my own floss (I used some of my hand dyed floss in Autumn and all the floss in Mini Midnight Manor is mine)...

It's addicting!

Well, that is a bit of what I've been up to...
hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
Happy Stitching!

September Smalls Update

Only 1 day late, not too bad! 
(Plus, yesterday was my Birthday, so I think that should give me a free pass on being a little behind...LOL!)

The SMALLS stitch along is being run by Heather, at Stitching Lotus and you can find out more about the stitch along here: http://stitchinglotus.ca/2017-sal/

So, my small finish for this month...
"Witch with the Frog Hat"
(at least, that is what I call her)
From the Halloween 2017 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine

Definitely one of my favorite finishes!

Well, I am off to take the puppy for a quick walk...
...I hope to be back soon with a more in-depth update of what I have been stitching.
Hope everyone has a happy Saturday!

Needleminder Exchange

Mii Stitch put together an awesome needleminder/cross stitch/floss exchange and it is now time to show what we received...





It is absolutely adorable!  I love everything that Ingrid (Mii Stitch) made and sent!
Thank you so much!

Of course, I forgot to snap a photo of what I made, but if you visit Justine's Blog, you can see it all.

It was a really fun exchange and I hope Ingrid will run one again in the future.

Something New...

Good Morning everyone!

So, I decided to try something new and I really wanted to share...
...I made (and published) my first Floss Tube video!
I was super nervous about actually posting it to my YouTube channel, but after all the work to get it uploaded, well...
I had to just take the plunge and publish it.

Please come and check it out...

I hope to be back soon, with a stitching update...
...things have been crazy around my house.
(Sick dog, kid getting ready for school and just the typical summer rush...)

Well, I am off to get some laundry and work finished...
...hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday, filled with lots of stitching!

July Smalls Update...

Good Morning everyone!
Yesterday was the last Friday of the month, which means it is time for a Smalls SAL update...
(Sorry I am a day late, yesterday got busy really fast and I didn't have time to sit down at my computer.)


I finished 2 small pieces this month...
Up first, mini pixel people Ariel and Eric...

(Pattern by weelittlestitches on Etsy)

And second, a cute mermaid...

(Pattern by ringcat on Etsy)

Well, that is all for now...
...I should be back at the end of the month with an update on how I did with my stitching challenge for this month.
Hope everyone has a fantastic day, full of stitching and fun!
