Stitch Maynia & other WIPs

Successfully completed the first 4 days of Stitch Maynia, yay! I didn't actually put many stitches in on each, because I'm also working on a Mother's Day gift (photo later in the post).
 June Bugs by Pine Mountain Designs.
Butterflies Biscornu by Seba Designs - I really like this one. Threads used so far: GAST Pine and Deep Sea, on a 32 count mystery linen; the tag just says "HD Blue" - a scrap bin find, no other info on it.
"August" from Winter and Summer by Prairie Schooler, on Beachwalk by Under the Sea Fabrics. This will be a really cute finish. Eventually.
Jolly Jack by All Through the Night. The fabric is actually a very dark purple 30 count linen called Purple Rain; also from a scrap bin so no other info. So not fun to stitch on. :( Threads used so far: GAST Fragrant Cloves & VMSS Gold Rush.

The Mother's Day gift is one of the "Hello Spring" designs by Nikyscreations, from the newest Just Cross Stitch magazine. I'm stitching with VMSS threads. The fabric was supposed to be white 32 count, but I think it was mislabeled and is actually 28 count. It's going to be bigger than I had planned, but I'll still turn it into a pin cushion. I think it will be cute.
And even though I've neglected it entirely all week, I did make a little bit of progress on Mysterious Halloween Town since I last showed it:
TGIF!

  1. I think your Purple Rain linen is Weeks. What a neat assortment of projects you have started for Stitch Maynia! Enjoy your weekend.

November Smalls SAL post

My November small for the Smalls SAL, run by Heather of Stitching Lotus:
This is from a kit that came with an issue of Cross Stitch Crazy magazine. It will be finished into an ornament using the little felt frame that came with the kit. There are supposed to be little stars/snowflakes, but this fabric about drove me nuts with how hard it was to stitch on, so I left them off.

I'm also keeping up with the Beautiful Sea Quaker SAL, with tiny part 4 finished last weekend:

And I stitched Season of Love by Stitchers Anon:
She has an Etsy shop with TONS of adorable PDF designs, but she's closing the shop at the end of the year so if you like her stuff, now is the time to buy. :(

Lastly, even though this isn't stitching, I wanted to show the Christmas wreath I made:
It's a foam wreath wrapped with a color-blocked yarn. I made the felt flowers, added a couple cute berry picks and some jingle bells, and got the bow at Michaels. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

January Smalls SAL post

My first small for the 2017 Smalls SAL run by Heather of Stitching Lotus. It's a Lizzie Kate Tiny Tidings called Snow Bird. There are meant to be blue beads in the centers of the snowflakes, but I subbed blue stitches. Stitched on 32 count  linen in "Wren" by PTP (I think).



I had intended to have one or two other smalls done by now, but for some reason, I thought it would be a great idea to start a project on January 2 for a friend whose birthday is February 3. I've had to put everything else aside to work on it. I still have 1/4 of it left to do, and only a week to do it. :( I really like it, and it's going to be cute when it's done, but ack.

It is reminding me of why I stopped enjoying stitching years ago - I was stitching large-ish things, and often they were for people and therefore needed to be done by some date (which ultimately slid and slid and slid, and then I felt guilty about it), and I got so sick of whatever I was stitching on that it stopped bei…

I finished this last night. "Holly Tree" by Scissor Tail Designs, stitched on 32 count "Wren" (by PTP maybe?), with Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe "Autumn Ivy," Romy's Creations "Red Passion," and DMC 502.

And I'm keeping up with the Beautiful Sea Quaker SAL; first 3 parts done.
