A Few Snippets From Around the Web

I’ve been a bit busy with other work this week and I was feeling a bit disconnected, so I asked on the Stitching the Night Away Facebook page for everyone to post a link to something they posted on their blog this week. That way I could catch up with everyone all in one place. It worked out really well, and I’m thinking we’ll do something like this on the Facebook page once a week from now on because it was fun to see what everyone was up to.

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!

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

Nut Jobs Cross Stitch Sampler Chart of the Week

Nut Jobs Ink Circles Cross Stitch SamplerI enjoy a good sampler and I really like it when something is done in a sampler style and there’s no alphabet (I think I’ve mentioned that before, I don’t even know why it bothers me.) This sampler chart from Ink Circles brings a bit of snarky sass to your stitching, it’s called Nut Jobs.

Allergen Alert: This sampler was stitched on a planet that also products peanuts, tree nuts, and other nut jobs.

The model for the pieces was stitched on 40 Ct. Park City Blend linen with Gloriana Silks (or DMC 779, 3863, 3011,3041, 3013, 3726). The finished stitch count is 165 x 218. [Read more...]
