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.

 

HAED- top row done- dragonflies whisper

I apparently forgot to share this. The top row of my HAED is done. I am so pleased with how it looks. I started the second row yesterday. I'm so happy with how it is looking.

 

I do my HAEDs tent stitch. Some people will say that isn't really stitching, or whatever but I don't care what they think or say. I like the coverage of tent on the 22 ct fabric and from looking distance you can't even tell.

Another half page and I'll be at my goal for the year. Yay.

 

 

 
Here is what it will look like some day.

 

 

 

 

HAED page finish-dragonflies whisper

I did it. I just finished another page on my HAED. I'm so close to finishing the top row. The last page is only one column. I'm so excited and pleased with how it looks.

Dragonflies whisper, Kuik. 22 count.

 

Close up of the latest page

 

Those pesky flowers look awesome. They took nearly an entire week to stitch. They were solid confetti.

 

A face

Earthdancer finally has a face. I'm quite excited and pleased with how it looks. This also Is the entire first page,many a tiny part of page 2. I have not added back stitching, specialty thread, or beads. I'll do all that at the end.

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.
