Stitching The Raven and a Snowflake This Week

I’ve got progress on two projects this week *gasp* – I know right? I’m still slowly progressing on The Raven by La D Da on the pretty sparkly fabric.

WIP Cross Stitch: The Raven by La D Da

And I’m also stitching up a snowflake …
WIP Cross Stitch: Snowflake Ornament

This is going to be the second pattern in the Ornament Pattern Club. I’m using white DMC and stitching on a Silkweaver Solo of 28 count Cashel Linen. Not my favorite linen choice, but I seem to have quite a bit of it in the stash cabinet. I do love the color though. It makes me think of a chilly dusk in the winter.

So that’s what I’m stitching this week. What are you working on?

Happy Stitching!
Loretta

About Loretta Oliver

I’ve been a cross stitcher since I was 8 years old. It was something I learned as a Girl Scout when we did a project for a badge related to crafts and the group choose to cross stitch a holiday design on a red sweatshirt using waste canvas. (Talk about hard first project, that was such a pain!) I was one of the first ones finished and I’ve had a needle in my hand almost every day since then.

    Nice work! I just finished Raven last week. I love it. Now I need to figure out what to do with it…frame or pillow or something else??

  2. Congrats on your finish :) I remember you had started yours around the time I ordered the chart. It comes together pretty quickly once you get going on it.

    Yeah, I had put it aside while I had a bad, bad case of tendinitis in my elbow and couldnt stitch for 3 months. Once I picked it back up, it was finished in a week!

    I really like your raven piece…will there be a raven on it too? I’m almost half way through the x-stitch army emblem and started working on finishing my Lewis and Clark cross stitch project.

  5. This post shows the chart model too http://www.stitchingthenightaway.com/2078/first-cross-stitch-start-of-the-new-year/ There’s a border, a raven, and some stars in the finished piece.
