Rageface is done.

I have to admit this was a hilarious cross stitch to work on, and I am very pleased with how it turned out. I hope my friend in NZ likes it. :)

So much to do.

So little time! I have 4 WIPs going on right now and I feel overwhelmed by the darn things, so I'm giving the ol' heroic effort into finishing. I forgot to take a picture of Letter S on Saturday, but I did get some more done on it while I was at my clients.

Follow Me has been getting so more attention, as seen by the wings being done at this point. :)
I also went and started Rageface before I totally forgot that I promised him to a friend. I started him, a couple nights ago I think? I've been working on him exclusively all day. Days off are wonderful.
This was me earlier working on it
Emma on the Left, Weezi in the middle, and Koneko is where you can't see him - behind my head. It was super warm and comfortable til I had to get up to use the bathroom. :)

Hope everyone has a great week! :)

Letter S

Back to the swing of things with Letter S! I think she will be done in a couple more Saturdays. :)
I may or may not have a gripe. What is with all the patriotic patterns? Especially patriotic patterns that are in a series. I think that is super ignorant to all the stitchers out there who don't live in the U.S.A. I was looking at the Cottage Series and surprise surprise, July is Patriotic. So I guess Canadians and Aussies and New Zealanders and well, pretty much everywhere else that's not AMERICA will have to change the colours and the flag. Does it even come with conversions for other countries, or even another house designed for the rest of us non-Americans?

I don't mind the patriotic patterns that are one offs. But this is a series and people making them should probably have something a little more country neutral. Anyone who has a TV and access to the internet should be well aware at this point that there is more to the world out there than just the country we live in. Designers should think about that.

Reading over that, it sounds a lot more snarky than intended, but I'm leaving it the way it is. :D

I have been working on Follow Me throughout the week, and I'm actually hoping that I run out of the Belle Soie thread I'm using so I have an excuse to order more.. and order some of the things on my 123 wishlist at the same time haha. :) 

I think that is it for now :)

Hallo 2017!

I have a finish for this year! This project I only work on at work, when the client doesn't mind and I have the time. Usually during...
