Craft Show

Hi stitchers

Well the craft show was a big let down, I'm so disappointed. Last time I went there was so many exhibits for cross stitch, kits, charts and fabrics. 

This year I only got to see one and it was little. Very little.

Linen and threads, I don't use linen as you guys know by now and other then I few Mirabilla charts not much for me. Not any fantasy stuff.

I did get Enchanted Mermaid from her as I've had my eye on this one for a while.


There was 3 mosaic kit places and I got 3 little ones all from the same place.
I want to try it and the fairies are pretty.




And I got a needle minder


That's it, if I had known there was no cross stitch I would have saved my money and got something online, which I might still do.

I think that's it with me and craft shows from now on, everything I get will be in a store or online.

Happy Stitching !!!

PR Sal

Hi stitchers

I needed to put April Fairy away and as I was looking for what to stitch next I found the PR Sal right down the bottom. It needed some love.

So here is the lady I was stitching before it went away


And now all done but for beads


And I stitched another lady


I have 5 more to stitch before I can have fun with the beading, and it's done.

Tomorrow I go to a craft show in the city, I've saved up for it and can not wait. Hope to find lots of great stitching stash. So looking forward to it.

Happy Stitching!!!

QS April Fairy

Hi stitchers 

I have page 6 QS April Fairy all stitched up. I love her blue eyes.

Thanks for your comments she has been a nice stitch so far but I thought page 6 would never end.

I've been watching a lot of flosstube as I stitch her, I've never watched it before and there's so many. Who do you love/like to watch? and I will look them up. 

So here she is, I really like how she looks so far.


That's all of row 2 done.

I don't know if I will keep going on page 1 or do something else.
Happy Stitching!!!

I stitched a page

I think it's been a while since I've stitched a hole page or finished one that was started.

Here is QS April Fairy before 


And now with page 4 finished


The hair had so many different pinks and gold/brown colors in it. 
I think I have 2 pages full of hair to look forward to that's going to be fun.

Until next time Happy Stitching!!!

Little bit of stitching

Right now I can not stay on any chart maybe because it's been real busy lately, or its just me.
This week will be better, I will have more time.

Anyway here is what I've been stitching 

Mini Pirate page 11 got started. I did around 11 or 12 blocks of 10 by 10.
You can now see another rock.


Mystery Sal Moon Sweet Moon. It not a mystery anymore.
I'm not going to show you what she will look like so it's still a mystery on my blog but she is pretty.
I'm thinking of still stitching her in the steps.

Here is what I've stitched with step 2 and no it's not done but I'm moving on.
A little more moon


I don't know what I'm going to stitch now, I'm thinking the Queen mermaid.
Until next time Happy Stitching!!!

A Finish

Hi 
There was a problem with the line up of the mystery Sal chart between step 1 and 2. 
When I found where I was to keep going it kind of put me off stitching it.
I will get back to it just not now. Sorry.
Oh and I had to order more kreinik anyway.

I thought I would go back to where this year started for me and I now have a finish.

Hide n Squeak


It took all Saturday to stitch the backstitching and I think I liked it better without it but I'm not going to unpick it all no way.

So what do you think?

Now onto something that has no backstitch, so over the backstitching for a while.

Happy Stitching!!!

Mystery Sal Starts

Hi all

Here is step 1 of the mystery Sal I'm doing. 


I hope my counting is right and its on the right spot with the fabric.

MS is called Moon Sweet Moon

I'm using fabric from Sew it all called stormy sky and its 16 count Aida.

So far it's very sparkly. I'm doing all the backstitch and any beads last.

And here is a update on the Queen mermaid, she has been put away for now as I've been coloring my animorphia coloring book.


My next post should be step 2 on the sal. Happy Stitching!!!
