Mystic Dragon

Here is Mystic Dragon last February when I last shared it. 
And here's after I worked on it the last 5 days:

This one stitches up pretty slowly as that black 18 count Aida is killer on the eyes.
But I think it's coming along, slow and steady, but at least there's some progress.

Hope you are all having a great week! Hope it's full of stitches!

Web of Life Progress update

So I'm back working on my rotation once again now that I finished the Precious Moments piece for my parents.
So the past 5 days were my spot for Web of Life. I haven't picked this one up in s long time. It's been since August that I showed it on my blog last time. So nearly 6 months now! 
So here is how it looked the 30th of August of last year:
And here is how it stand after working on it the past 5 days:
I was able to finish all the x stitches in the peace pipe finished one feather, finished filling in the medallion the feathers are hanging off of , got a bit more work in on the other feather and worked on the wording also. So! All in all I'm feeling pretty good about my progress on this one and am really hoping to see it finished by June. So I have about 2 more rotation rounds left to finish this. We will see if I can do it! 
Thank you for reading and happy Stitching!!

DS2N progress

Well I'm back to working on my rotation now that my parents have left and life is once again returning to normal. So I pulled out Day Surrendering to Night to work on the past 5 days.
This is what it looked like the last time I posted:
And here is where I'm at now:
I can see the "night" angels chin, mouth and nose. I really went to town on this this go around! I'm really proud of my progress! 
And now, sadly I must put it away to work on Web of Life. One that has not seen the light of day in a VERY long time. Mostly because I started running out of some of the threads in it. I am so close to a finish on it so I'm gonna push on with it and hope for a finish by summer! We'll see about that! 
Happy Wednesday and see yah next time!! Thanks for reading!

Well I feel pitiful.... I started this little guy Dec 5, and I'm STILL not finished with him! I still have to finish back stitching on him then he will finally be done! 
And even though I hadn't finished santa #5 I decided to start # 6. I figured it couldn't hurt to get a start on the next one! 
Well that's it for me for now. I will have an update on Day Surrendering to Night very soon! 
Thank you  for reading!

First finish of 2015!

Precious Moments "Counting our Moments Together"
Stitched on 18 cnt cream colored aida  using DMC floss 2 over 1
Started Nov. 10, 2014 Finished Feb. 16, 2015

I finally finished this thing!! Just in time, too! My parents will be here tomorrow! I'm so excited that I finished it!  It was a small piece, only took about 3 months to do but it was a bear of a project. I have a few counting mistakes, but I fudged it, and worked around them, and you can't see them!

It looks like it is not centered in this photo,(top to bottom) because of the angle I took the picture to avoid the glare on the glass, but it is! 

I added DMC metallic (The devils thread! I hate this stuff! the tangles, and the fraying are awful) to the backstitching on the #50 and in the hour glass, just to add a little bling.

Well, now I am freed up to work on some other projects. I am going to pull out "Web of Life" and "The Dragon" and slot them into the spots in my rotation that this piece was occupying, in hopes that I will see a finish on Web very soon.

And! I am also super excited as I ordered some 25 and 22 count fabrics to work my HAED pieces. It wasn't supposed to get here until tomorrow, but it got here on Valentines day! So, now I have fabbies to get started on my new HAED pieces....not that I should, but I CAN! I also bought new ink for my
3-in-1 so I can make working patterns for them as well. So, we will see if I actually break down and start a new one, or if I'll be good and wait until I have another finish. We will see.  

I probably will not be posting much if at all the rest of this month as my parents will be here, so got lots of visiting to do!

Joyful stitching everyone!!

Sea of Roses Progress!

This one is coming along...I am really enjoying my adventures with these heaven and earth design projects!! I feel like I stitch so slow! I see other people working on HAED pieces and they seem to ZOOM through pages like no tomorrow....But I try to realize this is not a race. this is me, just relaxing and enjoying my hobby. I'll get there in the end.

Hope my readers had a great Valentines Day yesterday!  Happy Stitching!
