I finished "finishing" my ornament lol

I've never made and ornament before, and have never been able to "finish" a cross stitch, so this is exciting for me lol

I love how it turned out, though! It's for an exchange but I wish I could keep it! Lol

I finished another page. The kreinik in her boobs is soooo sparkly!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012


I stitched my first ornament! I just need to figure out how to actually finish it as an ornament lol
I'm off two lines on the right...but you can't tell too much, right?

The lovely miss Clara!

I've been stitching on this page, which is technically the fifth page, but I just skipped down to her face. Her hair is basically all confetti, but the effect is worth it!
My first two days of work went well. Only thing is that I only got two days this week, totaling eight hours :/ they hired like fifteen people as seasonal workers!!!! That's crazy to me, and I worry I won't get enough hours with that amount of people. I guess I just have to prove myself so they give me more.
Anyway I also started insanity, and after one day my legs are so sore it's ridiculous! I'm going to push on through though. :)

Anyhow, here is Miss Clara!!!
Should I go left or right now? Or down??

Sunday, October 14, 2012


I got a call back, and I am going to be working seasonally part time at the gap! It's not a lot of hours, but it's a job! :D yay

Kind of frustrated...small Clara update

So I've been in Texas since June, and have been steadily looking for a job. As a recent college graduate I don't have very high hopes, but I want something at least entry level...I just can't find anything! I'm tied down to one area since my husband is military. There is a fairly large city 45min away, but we only have one a commute just won't work right now.
Sorry to rant, I just needed an outlet. I've been sitting in my house day after day, just me and my two cats, and while they are cute they don't pay me lol I have resorted to applying to Anything and everything. I even applied to McDonalds yesterday -.- isn't that why I went to college, so I wouldn't have to flip burgers???
I do have a group interview today for Gap, which would at least be something to bring in income.

The one good thing is that I have more stitchy time!! I'll post a peek of Clara, since I started coloring in her face!

Also here is the cutest picture ever lol left is Kestrel and right is Notion

Page 3 QS Clara

I finished page three! I'm about to start on five now so I can get to her face :D

QS Clara page two

I finished page two of Clara. Three is a partial and small so I should finish it in no time. The question is should I make a new start, go back to an old one, or start the next row of Clara???

I really like cloud by jelinka, but idk if I should start/buy her
If I got her I don't think I'd do the argyle checked pattern to the side.

Anyway here is Clara. She's such a little minx

Cat Lessons for People finished

I finished it! I love how it turned out. Now to find a cute fame for it!

Cat Lessons for people Lizzie Kate

I'm taking a break from HAEDs to do some Christmas gifts! I'm doing this one as a combined gift for my three great aunts (they all live together and mostly raised me). They have like 22 cats, only one living indoors thank goodness! So I figured this would mean more than a small gift, which is all I could afford since I'm still job hunting. Anyways...
I have done more on this since this pic, but I'll just post it all when I'm finished :)

It's 28ct jobelan 2 over 2 full crosses. It's my first time on either jobelan or 28 ct but I'm enjoying being brave haha

Page one :D

I finished coloring in page one of Q Clara. I'm missing two colors, but other than that it's done lol

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Outline is finished!

Yay now I can add color!

Page 4 and experiments in crochet

I'm just zooming through this thanks to boredom and Netflix lol!

I also crocheted my first scarf today! I've only ever made hats so I decided to give it a try...It's white, red, and green, which is appropriate since I've been watching Christmas movies nonstop the pat few days for some reason. Maybe it's because it's so hot here in Texas that I want to be reminded that winter still exists lol yesterday was the first day it didn't reach triple digits this whole month I believe!!

QS Clara

First three pages of the outline done!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I did it again...

I started QS Clara! Black outline first, then coloring it in :D
And I've finished all the black on the first page!

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Mini Alice and Snow White finished!!!!!

I finally finally finished!!!!! It's still wet but I had to show it! Only thing is it looks a little slanted to the this just because it is tent stitch or because it's wet or what??

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Page 9 finished!

I finished page 9 of Mini Alice and Snow White! I have three partials left and I'll have my first finish!!

Floral alphabet Afghan

I got the pattern for a floral alphabet in an exchange, and have had some Charles Craft baby afghan fabric for a while now, so I decided to start my first afghan :)
I have some Dinkey Dyes silk threads that I bought that are from an Oops Bag a month or so ago that I didn't know how to use, so I'm going to guess what's closest to DMC and use those.

I have finished the A! It took me like two days on and off, but I had to work so I probably could finish one in a day...

Almost done with page 7

I haven't been stitching as much lately, because I have a part time job working nights...but here is where I am on page 7. The colors in the cat are a little odd, but I'm sure it will come together when I'm done

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Finally in Texas!

I never thought this day would come! I'm done with all my classes at Georgetown and am now in Texas with my husband for good! It's kind of weird since I'm not used to actually getting to see him haha but I'm excited to figure out how we work when we live together lol
Here's a pic from the airport. I look rough, but oh well!

Page six finish close up

So I finished page six. It didn't take long...
Now I only have three more full pages and three partials and it's done!

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Almost done with the second row!

Im going to take a little break to work on Mariner's light...

Monday, June 4, 2012

Mariner's Light

This is a Dimensions Gold kit I am stitching for my uncle's birthday in July.
I'm almost done with the sixth page of Alice and Snow White, and will be working on this full time after the page finish until this is's not a large chart.

I made a start tonight because I wanted to use my new Qsnap. It's 6x6 and soooo little compared to my 11x11 one!

This is what the kit will look like
and this is what I've done so far

The little wheel is a charm, too, which I think is adorable

Also this is a start on the upper right of the design if you can't tell lol

First animal almost done!

Well you can see the deer's face now! And this page is coming along...I'm a little worried about the detail on the left hand from my perspective it looks a little undefined. Im hoping when I finish the area it will look better...also their noses aren't that great...does it look weird that you can barely see them? It called for a few stitches of 3865 and that's it

Friday, May 25, 2012

HAED Mini Alice and Snow White page 5 finished!!

I'm so happy with how this is turning out :D I will soon get to the slightly creepy animals lol

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Help me decide!

Sooo I need to decide which HAED I want to work on!
I'm almost done with page 5 of Mini Alice and Snow White, and there are 12 pages in total with the last three being partials...
But I just bought Faces of Faery 185 and 187 because HAED had a 50% off sale!!

 This is Faces of Faery 185
 Here is Faces of Faery 187
And this is one I've been working on since last June, but haven't picked back up in a while! All the reds were getting to me after a while...

But then again, maybe I should just finish Alice and Snow White!

This is what I have of page 5 so far! I'm loving it, but this page has been confetti heavy
