Mystery Cross Stitch Update

Here is my last 2011 update of my mystery BIG cross stitch. I'm really enjoying parking the threads. I don't have to count constantly or tuck my stitchings in all the time. I think it has cut time by a small amount!!

Well I hope to post my 2012 things I want to stitch tomorrow sometime. Since it is quiet here tonite I plan to stitch this evening. My son has gone to a coed movie nite tonite. It is my first new years without I'm a bit sad. (just a bit--giggles)

Happy stitchings~~

Saturday, December 17, 2011


Well I have started my new project this past week. I decided NOT to tell people what it is. You will have to try and figure it out. I finished the first page. There is going to be lots and lots of white. I have also decided that I'm going to use the parking method. It really works well for the background. I haven't decided if I will do the parking for centre image yet. It makes me extremely nervous to try it. Lots of same shade colours. This will be the last photo taken until after Christmas since I will be busy all week--still hope to get some stitching in during the evenings!!

Happy stitchings~~

Dragon is home!

I finally picked him up this morning! It was done on Saturday but I had to wait until I could get down and the framer to be open! I think I picked the perfect coloured frame!! I'm still deciding where I should hang it. I have 8 plus ceilings and the dragon piece looks really small. I know it will look different once I get more framed and hung on the wall.

I have started another big piece. I won't tell people what it is.....Just have to wait and see it appear!!

Cross stitch finishes

Here are my recent finishes.

Shino from the .hack series.

Here are 2 Nyan cats stitched. I made one into an ornament for my son. I buy or make an ornament for him each year. Instead of a poptart looking body-- made it into a christmas pudding. Pattern is here.

Here is my stitched and unfinished Domo. I won't be able to finish him just yet. I hurt my wrist moving snow yesterday. It might be my carpal tunnel-- 3 of my fingers are still numb/and hurt when I woke up early this morning. I will put the pattern up here soon as I can.

I don't think I will have anymore finishes until the new year now.

Happy stitchings~~

That is it for today....Happy stitchings~~

Dragon Update-- Great news!!

Well some excellent news!! I didn't manage to miss any rows!
Now I must figure out what I did wrong on the page. (The part where it is unfinished)
I might stitch the page beside it next and stitch some markers in. I might of forgotten to mark off a completed row!!

Just click to see a bigger version.

I'm off to continue watching Dr.Who now!! :)

August TUSAL, Dragon Update and Emma

Here is my August TUSAL-'m getting lots of gold,oranges and browns in my jar now!

Here is the latest on the baby dragon. Mommy's claw is finally done. Also we have decided here the dragon is a girl. Might have to give her a name once I'm done. Just click photo to see a larger photo.

Some sad news for me-- My beagle Emma(11 years) is now in doggy heaven. She was having lots of problems walking and it was time for her to go. It is so quiet here--and that is the hardest part now. We think we are done with dogs now and decided not to get anymore. I also think Colbalt is having some problems too with Emma gone. Keeps on waiting at the door for Emma to walk in.

Well that is it-- for today!

Happy stitchings~~

Another Baby Dragon Update

Another update on the baby dragon. It is coming along slowly. You can see the baby dragons chest and tiny foot. I just wish I could stitch more each day. I'm still limiting how much I stitch each day since my neck is still very sore.

Click to see larger photo.

Here are some finished pieces people have completed!!
Thanks guys!!

Chibigami has stitched the cute platypus Perry!

YumeNannashi has stitched Yuki.

That is pretty much it for now since my head is hurting now.

Baby Dragon Update

Here is my recent update of the baby dragon sampler. It is very hard to be patient with this pattern. It has lots of colour changes and takes forever to complete a small area. It doesn't help when you hurt the nerves in your neck. I managed to do a bit of damage to my nerves/joints in my neck stitching way too much a couple week ends ago. My doctor is now trying to fix what I damaged.
Anyways in slowly getting back into stitching this past week end. I take lots of breaks now -- this really almost sounds like my wrist problems.

click photo to see it bigger.
I also have some other news. I have finally purchased a Wii. It was a good deal! I only have a couple games right now( I love the racing game) so it doesn't get in the way of my stitching time yet. That is pretty much it for now. I hope to have another update for you soon!!

Happy stitchings~~

TUSAL and Baby Dragon Update

Here is my August TUSAL. I finally have more floss in my jar. Just alot more boring browns and some golden yellows.

Well I'm finally working on this again. I almost have one of Mom's toes done. I was really worried it was going to look really dark. I guess I was lucky!! Just click the photo to see a larger version. I hope to finish the bottom two pages and start another page next week. I don't have all colours I need for this sampler and I will pick them up later next week when I get some more money.

That is it for today. I'm off to do some stitching!!

Happy Stitchings!!!

I know its really late..... but here it is. There is no new floss in the jar--photo was from last month!!
I haven't felt like stitching since I had been sick. This past week I had a slight set back. I'm thinking of getting tested for celiac disease now. I'm hoping the blood test shows positive because I really don't want to be knocked out and get a tube down my throat. (doctor might do both anyways) I just hope I get this sorted out soon and start feeling better.

I have lots of new digimon patterns made up. I just need to turn them into PDF's and get them on the web page. I just haven't had the energy(brain power) to do it. Soon.... I promise!!!

New Anime Dolls

Today I have 3 new anime doll patterns.

Here is Michiru (AKA- Gopher) from Zombie Loan. I really do feel sorry for her!! I hope to do more dolls from this series soon!

Here are Kazuya and Mai from Ghost Hunt. It is one of my favorite series. I love anything to do with ghosts!
Link to new patterns.
Here are a couple of my ghostly photos. Lots of experiences are around my son when he was much younger. As parents we didn't make a big deal out of it but interesting when certain things did happen.

Storms and June Tusal

We had the one of the coolest storms last nite!! I love thunderstorms!! (except we had a couple tornadoes in my area last week from a different storm--not good) Last nite I decided to try making a video of it with my camera-- but blogger is giving me problems right now and won't upload it. It could be the internet also because it did go offline last nite and it is acting very slow!!

Sorry this is a tad late. Here is my June Tusal.

Today is..........

Today is my Blogs birthday. I did a few more posts then last year!!

I will be doing a giveaway soon.... I just haven't set anything up yet since I have been sick on and off. Stomach problems! I'm having problems with different foods. It could be dairy/flour or even tomato related stuff again. It has been hard to pinpoint which one thing is giving me problems. I think its dairy(cheese) but I can't be sure. I have stopped eating anything dairy.....except yogurt(since it can help with stomach problems). I hope I can figure this out soon.

I haven't been stitching too much except today (it is hard to sit up for a long time). I'm trying to stitch up a doll and hope to have it completed very soon.

I'm off for walk around the yard to see the long grass / flooding issues. REALLY tired of rain!!
