New Start

Hi stitchers

My new start is Zenia Bewitching Pixies


Here is what I've stitched


The fabric is a little darker in real life.
It's on 16 count Aida called misty gray. I found it on Amazon of all places but they have a web
Www.garibaldisneedleworks.com

The fabric is so nice but what I love about them is they give you a dmc color match to the fabric so you know what the color is like. I love this idea. They will also mix 2 colors for you. I will be buying from them again for sure. They also do the other fabrics most stitchers use so check them out if you don't know about them already.

It's going to be busy on the weekend and next week so I will not be posting Monday and don't know about next Friday. We will see.

If I'm able I will try and stitch on seasons for the weekend and more on Zenia next week but again we will see if I have a hour or so.

Happy Stitching!!!

Page Finished Yay!

Hi stitchers

Hope your weekend went great.

Yes a page finished and started on page 2. I can not see her in the chart so hope it all works out.

Here is seasons before


And now


It looks like a water painting to me, what do you think?

I know in my last post I said this week I was stitching Wanda's Witchery but... I got my fabric for the pixies and I really want to start one so that's what I'm doing this week.

See Friday what pixie I'm stitching. 

You will still see the Witchery in October still.

Thanks for your comments, I love to hear from you.

Happy Stitching!!

Witches

Hi stitchers

I got lots of stitching done this week, which was great.

I've been stitching from a free book I got with a cross stitch crazy magazine. I don't know what issue.
So many I want to still stitch in here.


So both witches are designed by Shannon Wasilieff (they look so much like a Joan Elliott).

Both are on 14 count Aida.



I love them. 

I also started next weeks planed stitch. 

A Mill Hill kit called Wanda's Witchery, will look like


And what I've done


It's on the same fabric as the two witches. 

The plan is to put the Witchery between both witches all in one frame. 

I was going to use the blue paper from the kit but it looks too dark with the witches so I hope it will still look good on the fabric. 

Now onto seasons again.

Until Monday Happy Stitching!!

New start/finish and one other

Hi stitchers, I hope you are all doing well.

This week my planed stitch was Robyn the majestic dragon. I only stitched on it Monday and Tuesday, so 2 days.

Here is before 


And now


I like stitching this once I get used to the black again.

A few of my stitchy orders came Tuesday. Most of it was beads and kreinik for a few charts I have but I also got a few more kits and charts, I will show as I stitch them.

I did stitch a mill hill kit that I got for my mum.

Its called Love Gardening. My new start and finish.


I have never stitched on perforated paper before and in October I want to stitch a bigger one, so thought I would do this small kit to see how it goes. Other then my needle falling out of the holes until I got used to it, it's ok. My mum loves it.

About my fabric I did email them and they are doing it now and will send Monday. I think they forgot my order, so not good for business and will not go there again.

On to seasons again, I don't know how much I will get done this weekend but we will see.
Happy Stitching!!!

Fabric

Hi stitchers

Sorry I did not post last week, it got very busy. I did not stitch for 3/4 days.

I did a lot on seasons that weekend. 

Last week I had planed to start one of the pixies but the fabric I got was way to blue. 
I'm after a mid, silver grey and I feel I'm goldilocks. I'm finding it too light, too dark. Too blue, green or brown, it has mix colors. All I want is a nice mid grey that looks grey. On 16 count Aida. 
So hard to find. I think I've found it but now have to wait until October. Fingers crossed.

So last week as it was busy and I could not do my plan stitch I just kept stitching seasons when I could. 

So here is before


And now


Close to a page finish.

I have a question for you all, what is the longest time you have had to wait for fabric?

I ordered fabric from a place I will not name on 3/4th August and I still don't have it. I have not even had a email to say it's on the way which I do not like. 

I was watching flosstube and a lady said that this place just had a sale to wait 8 weeks but I ordered before the sale. I'm not happy.

The longest I've had to wait before this was 3 weeks and they let me know that it's in the mail on the way to me. 

I'm going to wait until October before emailing them but I will not be buying from them again. If they emailed me on what's going on, ok, I would feel better, but they are not and it just puts me off. Sad too as I liked a few fabrics they had.

I tell you between not finding the right fabric for my pixies and a fabric order that's taking too long to get here, I think I will stay with the places I know and trust. Or try too anyway.

Happy Stitching!

Still A Duck to Me

Hi stitchers

This week I have been stitching on the fairy and the dove. 

My stitching slowed right down by the end of this week because every time I would look at the chart  I would see the lines for the backstitch that I'm going to have to do, now I have ages before that, but it put me off stitching it. 

She will been put away for a while, I will still stitch her, just later, she also doesn't work in with my plans for October.

Here is before


And now


I got to the bottom and I still say it's a duck, I mean doves are white right? 

Time to work on seasons which I'm looking forward to stitching, I don't want to lose my stitchy bug.

Post Monday 

Happy Stitching!!!
