Fire Goddess dress

I’ve been working on Fire Goddess the past few weeks. I finally have a page finish. The third of four pages, minus the beading and backstitch.


I am pleased with how it looks and may just have a few big finishes in 2014.



In other news I am working on my stitch list for 2014. Anyone else? I just have to collect what few threads I need, and get my fabric ready to go.

Well I didn’t get much stitching done this past month-  My husband had emergency surgery and was in the hospital for 8 days.  He nearly died, and I have been so busy that stitching just hasn’t happened.  But here is what I did get done-

Fire Goddess-

It’s been a long time since I updated. I have a job though and didn’t have time through the summer as I figured out a new routine for me and the family.

I am back to stitching though-

Here is where I am with stitching-

I finished Springtime Serenade-

Springtime Serenade- CCN- 28ct evenweave- coffee/tea dyed

I also finished Coffee Crazy. This was such a fun easy stitch.   I did change the color charted in the mug to the blue.  

Coffee Crazy- Lizzy Kate- 28ct coffee dyed evenweave

And last but certainly not least- I finally got the sparkly threads I needed for this,  I did the sparkly stitches in her hair, necklace, and belt.

Fire Goddess- Joan Elliott, 28 ct, hand dyed evenweave

Well it’s that time again.  I haven’t much of an update really.  I have a good reason though I promise.  I got a part time job.  Between that and Troy, well life is busy.  I am stitching about 2-3 days a week.  Depending on how many off days I have.

Anyways.  Here is what I worked on this past month-

Still plugging away at the border on Japanese Garden- I’m burnt out on it. But I’ve not much more to go now….

I got a good bit done on Springtime Serenade.  When I last left off- there was only one Tree mostly done.   I am really enjoying this one.

 Fire Goddess. I also am loving this piece. I just love the colors in this.  I have a few gift certificates to spend for 123 stitch. I am going to use them to get the Kreinik and the beads for this piece.  Can’t wait to add the Kreinik to what is already stitched.

It’s that time again folks.  WIPocalypse update 2.  I am qFireuite pleased with my progress this past month.   I stitched on a few projects and finished  2.

Fire Goddess- Joan Elliott- 28 ct hand dyed evenweave
 Lizzy Kate- Hop Squared- Hand dyed Aida received in an exchange- finished
 Shades of Autumn-from nancy’s needle- 18 ct canvas- Finished
 Japanese Garden- Chatelaine- 28 ct cashel linen midnight blue

Now for my regularly scheduled update- I ended up stitching on Shades of Autumn last week and it is finished.  I am so very pleased with how it turned out.   It only took 3 years to finish, but that isn’t the point is it?  Hubby loves this one and wants to hang it in the hall, who am I to argue with that. 

Today I got out Japanese Garden. My goal is to get the border finished, whether that is possible I have no idea, but i’ll give it a good try. 

Fire Goddess

I added a few new charts to my For sale page- the link to the page is on one of the tabs above.

I forgot to mention last week that I had a small finish.  It was a small- a tiny really, that I work on when I am out.  I plan to get some fabric for it in the next few weeks- So I can finish it before Easter. I am unsure what it is stitched on. A piece of Aida, hand-dyed a wonderful light Yellow that I received in an exchange. Oh and if you have this chart you’ll recognize I didn’t stitch the green border at the top, I didn’t like it. 

Lizzy Kate- Hop squared.  unknown yellow Aida.

Onto this week………

I am quite pleased with my stitching this week. I stitched on Fire Goddess by Joan Elliott. I am loving this project so far, The colors, the stitching- just everything about it. 

Fire Goddess- Joan Elliott, hand-dyed 28 ct.

 I am missing some threads still- that is the waist area that is unstitched. I have to order them, and haven’t gotten to it yet. 

I am hoping to get some finishing done tonight. I have a pile of things waiting to be finished.  I finally picked out fabric and decided what to do for some of them.  Hopefully I’ll have another post this week showing some of them off.

I am unsure what I am stitching this coming week. I’ll go with whatever calls to me tomorrow.  Whether it is Shades of Autumn or Springtime Serenade remains to be seen.
