Let it snow

Don't worry. It's just a Country Cottage Needleworks ornament I finally started. I've had this kitted up forever. It's been a fun, easy stitch so far.

 

Here is where I left off until it's up next in my rotation. I believe this is a piece of 28 ct. Evenweave, that I dyed in coffee.

Halloween finish-spider’s garden

I finished this 2 nights ago. I love how it turned out. It's spider's garden from the Halloween 2012 issue of JCS. You'll notice I did slightly change it. I left out the silver beads. I thought they took away from the web. Otherwise I stitched this as charted on 28 ct.evenweave that I hand dyed.

Speaking of Halloween, guess what I finally have finish finished? 6 bats. You can't tell here but the background fabric is spider webs. A tiny bit of the glue is showing on that right side and I'm okay with the lack of perfection.

 

A finish and some feathers

I finally got back to stitching after about a month. I can't wait for April to be over, exactly 2 weeks after my pap died, my father in law died.

On a brighter note, I finished my first mill hill kit. I didn't really like the perforated paper, but I did enjoy stitching this, and especially adding the beads. Next time I think I will stitch it on evenweave.

Anyone who has stitched this or has this will notice that I left out the background mountain and stuff at the bottom right. I simply disliked it and felt it took away from the owl. The kit was also missing one color the brown, which I disliked the color so I picked my own brown.

 

 

I worked a bit on Earthdancer as well. I was able to stitch the wisp Of hair and the feathers at the top of her head.mnext time I hope to complete her face.

 

 

 

 

 

She has hair

I completed the hair on Earthdancer this week. I'm quite pleased with it. Wow what a lot of hair. Next time I hope to fill in most of the remaining stitches on this page.

 

 

Up next week though is Dragonflies whisper. Yay. I can't wait.

Last up is a new small. Last month I finished mr. Monster, this month I started my first mill hill kit- night owl. I'm not sure I like the perforated paper. I hate stitching in hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also I finished up mr. Monster. My son picked the finish. I wanted to add a bow to hide the seam but he didn't so…

 

Don't mind the pink hook. It won't come off the door without tearing the door.

 

Question of month. If money weren't an object what would be on your stitching bucket list.

 

I would have all the chatelaines if money weren't an object. I am in love with them.

 

Earthdancer

I stitched Earthdancer last week. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked. Not bad for only 3 days stitching. I still love this piece.

 

 

 

My first mill hill kit

This is my small rotation. I started something new this week as last month I finished Mr. Monster.
Can you believe this is my first mill hill kit? Although I have seen many I have liked, never did I like one enough to pay the price for one. When I saw this owl however…Well I had to have it.
 
I stitch in a frame that holds my snaps that hubby made for me. Perforated paer however doesn't fit in a snap, so I stitched this in hand. I think that is the reason why I like how it looks though I did not really enjoy the stitching. I hate stitching I hand. So my goal for next month is to find a way fit make this work in a frame.mi have an idea. Not sure though. I'll still finish this as I love the owl. If I can't find a way to make this work in a frame, this will be my only mill hill kit.
 
Anyone else not like mill hill kits as they don't like perforated paper?
