Boo Club

I started Boo Club by Lizzie Kate a good while back.  I'm really close to finishing!  Only one more section after the one I'm working on.  Then I'll finish up the border and add some little details like buttons for eyes, etc.


Thanks for stopping by.

Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle

I posted a photo of this piece when I finished it, but never posted one of it framed.  So, when I unearthed Christmas decorations, I knew I had better get it then.  For those that did not see the original post, this is a Lizzie Kate pattern and a fun stitch.

Cross Stitch Update


I'm still plugging away at the reindeer.  I had to wait quite a while for one of the charts to come in and that delayed things somewhat.  The name of each reindeer will be below each one and there are more details to be added to the antlers along with the crystals that will be added last.  I really hope to have this one completed and framed in time for Christmas 2017.

I have several other projects going too.  When one piece becomes tiring or too stressing, I switch to another one for a time.  Cross stitching is supposed to be relaxing, right?  I recently started Spell Bound by Glendon Place.  The Happy Halloween in the corner has been a little difficult, but I'm almost finished with it.  The remainder will be easier.  I'm working on 32 count linen and my eyes start crossing and have to stop and let them rest.  Photo courtesy of www.glendonplace.net

Cross Stitch Time

I have accompanied my husband on a business trip this week. Spent yesterday stitching on my reindeer project.  Making slow but steady progress.

Reindeer Upate

A small amount of progress since the last update.  One more reindeer done, still waiting on one pattern from the cross stitch store, and then on to the last two reindeer.  There is a lot of detail work that I save until the end like backstitching and attaching the crystals to the antlers.  The end is closer than it has been!

Cross Stitch Work in Progress Updates

I have made more progress on the Crystal  Reindeer by Hinzeit. 



I'm also trying to consistently work on Reindeer Games by Sue Hillis Designs.  This one is little more fun to stitch!


Hope to have both completed by Christmas!
