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~~

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~~
