Finally! a small finish.

This was supposed to be done MONTHS AGO. I finally managed to finish the last of the Pokemon for my AUS friend, Tim. Here is Eevee in all (her? his?) it's glory.

Now all that's left to do is to wash them all, iron, and then mail. I'm also sending him all the materials to make his own! If he learns to do it, that'll be two doods I've taught how to stitch. :D And by taught I mean throw materials at them, google some how-tos and then leave them to learn on their own because I am a horrible teacher. But it still counts in my book. :D

I think today, after I'm doing playing too much World of Warcraft, I'll work on Letter S and try getting her done in the next little bit.

We'll see. :)

Week of work is over! Hurray! :D

Saturday I took Follow Me to work so I could work on it there. It's coming along nicely but I think I mentioned it before, I'm running out of silk. This isn't the first time this has happened to me. Most designers stitch the project before printing, so why do some leave out how much thread you'll actually need?

The silk is almost 8 dollars a skein, too. So I was hoping that one would be enough.

The plus side is that once I run out, I can then order more.. and a few other things I'm sure will make their way into my cart.

So here is Follow Me.

One thing about this project.. it smells like my Grandma. The fabric smells like her. I used the exact same fabric on Paladin and it didn't smell like her. I cut that fabric in 2, so it was the same piece. But once I started working on this.. I don't know. It's a little creepy lol. She's alive and well, so. Don't know what's going on!

Not sure what I'm going to do with this project after I've done it. I do have a friend who loves Hallowe'en, so might frame it and mail it to her for her decorations. I'll figure something out, I'm sure. :)

Anyway take care and happy stitching!.

Holy crud!

SO yeaaaaaaahh.. I didn't forget about this haha. I... really haven't been stitching at all lately. I mean, I finally picked up the needle tonight to work on Letter S while at my Saturday client, but I haven't done anything since I finished Rageface. Which I still need to mail, even.

To be honest the past month has been emotionally draining. My mood swings have been uncontrollable and it's making me miserable. What really sucks is that stitching always relaxes me, but I can't seem to pick up the needle to do it. I have immersed myself in gaming, though, to get me through it. I'm finally starting to feel a bit more like myself.

Anyway, here is my latest Letter S picture.
Pretty much just the wings to do, the flower bit, and then the beading. She was meant to be done a couple weeks ago, but yeah. Oh wells.

Hope everyone is doing well, and I enjoy reading your blogs every day. :) Take care and happy stitching! :)

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...
