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.

And I’m also stitching up a snowflake … [Read more…]

Progressing Slowly Stitching The Raven

I’m not very far along on The Raven right now but enough that you can get a better idea of how it will layout across the hand-dyed fabric.

First Cross Stitch Start of the New Year

So I couldn’t resist starting a new project. It took me awhile to decide on a fabric, but I started stitching The Raven by La D Da.

Imagination Creation Finished Stitching

This was my last finish for 2011 and I included it my annual stitching report, but then I realized I didn’t give it’s own blog post and formally declare it finished. So here it is…

This is Imagination Creation by Dragon Dreams, a design from the 2005 Fantasy Faire. I had this kitted up in my stash since the event and just now finally stitched it up – and I’m so glad I did! I think instead of framing I’m going to do a flat board finish and I recently someone displaying their small cross stitch pieces using a plate stand and it looked fantastic, so I might try that.

My 2011 Annual Report of the Stitching

Hard to believe it’s the last day of 2011 already and tomorrow we’ll start a fresh new year. One of the benefits of keeping a stitching blog is it’s easy to look back through the posts and see what I’ve accomplished (or not accomplished) stitching wise for the year. So I present my 2011 annual report of the stitching…

Almost Done with Green Dragon Bookmark

I really thought I’d get him finished this weekend, but the universe had other plans. I did however come very close to finishing him.

Cross Stitch WIP Green Dragon Bookmark

This is Green Dragon Bookmark by Dracolair and I’m stitching him on 32 count Belfast Linen Silkweaver Solo Mini with the DMC threads as charted. I do really wish I had stuck to the 28 count fabric instead of opting for 32, it’s been a tight squeeze with all the fractional stitching, but I wasn’t thinking of that when I chose my fabric.

All the cross stitching is done on the dragon and about half the border is stitched. Once I finish the border stitching I’ll go back and do all the backstitching and outlining, then figure out how I want to finish the edges and insert him into the next book I pick up.

Then comes the really tough decision of what to stitch next… [Read more…]

I’m still slowly stitching Green Dragon Bookmark

I’m actually almost finished with all the cross stitching. I just haven’t had as much time to stitch as I would like to have lately. I need to remedy that, fast.

Stitching WIP Green Dragon Bookmark

This is Green Dragon Bookmark by Dracolair and I’m stitching him on 32 count Belfast Linen Silkweaver Solo Mini with the DMC threads as charted. With all the fractional stitching I’m kinding of wishing I had stuck to 28 count instead of grabbing the 32 count, but when I did my floss toss and picked a fabric I was looking at what color would go best with the greens and didn’t think about the fabric count at the time. Lesson learned. [Read more…]
