I’m currently alternating back and forth between stitching the two versions, my plan is to make a few throw pillows with them before the holidays. Charting this was a labor of love and I really enjoyed working on this project, I hope you enjoy it too. I can’t wait to see everyone’s variations and color selections :)

Enjoy & Happy Stitching!

Finished Stitching Joker and Harley

This is a WeeLittleStitches pattern from the Pixel People in Love collection. I’ve actually had this pattern for awhile, but I was missing a color so I hadn’t stitched it yet. Found the color I needed, so I pulled the pattern out and got started stitching it up. I was able to finish it this weekend while watching TV with my husband.

Joker & Harley in Love - finished stitching

The fabric is an old Silkweaver Solo and the floss is all DMC. I did swap a few colors – the yellows and the green are off a shade or two from what was charted, but I was pretty close so it seemed to work out okay. I used three strands of floss instead of the usual two, I wanted slightly more solid coverage since I want to work this into a pillow.

I think I have some fun black and white quilting fabrics stashed away, so I’ll dig through my supplies and see what I can find to put this together next time I have a sewing day .

Alone (A Bone Secrets Novel)

Last night I finished reading Alone (A Bone Secrets Novel) by Kendra Elliot. This was a pretty smooth read and I enjoyed the story. It's a combination of mystery, thriller, sort of drizzled with romance. There is one sex scene in the book, but … [Continue reading]
