Pirate Treasure Stitching Is On a Roll

I got pretty far along in stitching Pirate Treasure this week from where I left off last week.

I found a good reference point when I was stitching the letters so I ventured onto page two of the pattern with those so I can build from there when I’m ready to do the surrounding area. [Read more…]

Picked Up Pirate Treasure to Test Out My No Baste Scroll Bars

This WIP has been sitting in the stash cabinet for awhile. It always seems to get set aside for other projects, though I really do enjoy working on it. After I finished stitching The Raven I wanted to put something on the no baste scroll bars to test out with my E-Z Stitch lapstand from American Dream Products. I’m working on Pirate Treasure: Oak Island Mystery by Lynne Nicoletti…

Working on Pirate Treasure again....

The no baste system uses strips of velcro to attach your stitching to the bars, very inventive indeed. It only took me a few minutes to get my project attached to the scroll bars and I spent a few minutes fidgeting with the tension to get it where I wanted it to be. [Read more…]

Almost Done Stitching the Raven

I really wanted to get The Raven done this past week, but things don’t always go as planned. I am really close though! The words are done, the Raven is done, the little “fence” type part is done. All that is left to stitch is one more star and the border!

Almost Done Stitching The Raven!

I’m actually considering leaving the border off and opting for some sort of fancy matting when I have it framed.

How is your stitching progress looking this week? [Read more…]

Little Bit of Progress Stitching the Raven

Not much stitching over the past week. Everyone seems to be getting some sort of flu bug -again- and that has me a bit distracted. I did get a little further on The Raven by La D Da

Finished Stitching Snowflake

This is my first finish of the year ~ YAY! A fluffy white snowflake ornament stitched on a 28 count Cashel Linen solo fabric from Silkweaver that my son picked out of the stash cabinet.

The fabric color makes me think of a winter sky at dusk when there’s lots of fluffy snow on the ground and a snowman in the yard. [Read more…]
