26!

I turn 26 today, guys! This is what I got myself and I’m soo tempted to open and start stitching the new pattern, but I have to finish both the Cinderella’s Castle and the flowers patterns before I get to this one :/.

The new pattern’s (I won’t reveal what it is until I start stitching >:D) finished size is about that of the “Flowers and Lace” pattern. The major difference though is that the “Flowers and Lace” has a lot of empty areas without stitches and this new pattern will not, so it’ll probably end up taking a lot more time to complete.

Speaking of Cinderella’s Castle, all the cross-stitches are done :D. I meant to post a picture of it now, but turns out the pictures I thought I had aren’t on my phone! :(. I’ll edit this post tomorrow morning with the picture.

WHY IS THIS STILL A WIP?

Hi readers 🙂

Haha so, a year has passed since I last posted a picture update of my Past, Present, Forever WIP. Has it really been that long and has time passed that quickly? This piece has to stop being a WIP soon, but I have a big feeling two or three years might pass and this will still be a WIP, lol.

I finished the last of the DMC 501 dark blue green(?) stitches and most of the random stitches I missed (I’m getting soooo sick of these confetti stitches!). I hope next to update soon with all the cross-stitches done here, then on to the backstitches after that. 🙂 Can someone please explain why backstitches seem to be one of the most hated things for cross-stitching? And last, the embellishments and this piece will be all done :D.

Flower Leaves and a Trip to Michaels

Hi readers!

I was hoping to have more stitching done since I’m done with classes and have more free time, but I’ve been very in-between having that time to go through my to-read list of novels and cross-stitching. That coupled with me liking to stay in most of time, well…let’s just say my boyfriend jokes about me being an old soul, haha.

As promised in my last entry, here’s some greenery added to my Flowers and Lace WIP.

I made an overdue trip to Michaels yesterday to get more floss and a bead storage box for my earrings. I figured I’d go to Michaels when I could get all those items in one trip. This past week, I finally used up all the black floss for the surprise gift (I’m almost done with it!) and the blue green floss for my Past, Present, Forever kit I’m working on. This is the first time I didn’t have enough DMC floss for a kit.

The DMC 501 blue green looks pretty much the same though! 🙂

Getting to the Homestretch

Dec. 10, 2015

The tweeding phase is done! 🙂 I’m super excited with the progress and I’ve gotten a bit impatient, so I’ll be completing the stitches for Walt Disney and Mickey next.

This arrived today, welp. I ordered ear buds off of Amazon, felt opportunistic and added one of the cross-stitch kits I wanted to the order to get free shipping. 🙂 I won’t be starting the kit any time soon, but it’s definitely something to look forward to.
