I knew I'd missed a couple of weeks of checking in but I hadn't realised it was nearly a month. Anyway things are starting to take shape! I'm starting to be able to see where other parts of the design will fit in. The places where the leaves will slot in for example. And I finally, finally got to actually put some purple in - when I picked this design all those years ago, I was under the impression there'd be a lot more purple involved than there actually is...

Progress

I am actually a little further on with the design than this picture shows, but not by very much. I started in on some pink, but I haven't got very far yet. Hopefully next week's post will have some actually fairy in it!

I started on working on tiny Yule-things for ornaments to use as gifts for my assorted cousins. This is the current one!

This week was a good week for the project, I managed to get lots done. Helped in no small part by having the day off on Friday and having decided to binge listen to a podcast series while I was at it. Unsurprisingly, around five solid hours of cross-stitching does make an impact on a project.

I haven't made a sizeable cross-stitch project in ages, so I was looking for one to do and came across a very old project. Back when I first got into cross-stitch in my early teens I found a pattern for a flowerfairy that I wanted to make. It was a little overambitious for my age and patience level. (Not least because, I didn't realise when I bought it that it was just the pattern so I had to track down all the many individual shades of thread for it.) Anyways, a couple of years ago I got tired of it sitting in a box taunting me whenever I came across it, went through my thread collection and gathered all the threads for it that I had and took advantage of a craft store closing down to get the rest of the shades I needed and bagged them up so they were all together for when I next wanted a big project to work on.

Fast forward to this summer when I was looking for a bit of a challenge, I came across the fairy and decided that its time had come. I've been working away at it steadily for the last month or so but I keep meaning to and then forgetting to take photos of my progress along the way to keep me motivated, but I finally did today so I'm going to try to get back into posting weekly update posts as I've found them really motivating for large projects in the past.

I did in fact end up going back and unpicking that one bookmark.

I actually just moved houses, away from hot-as-the-sun Texas and into... apparently very rainy Wisconsin. It was a heck of a move, but to stave off tension I was doing a few small projects in between packing.

Lots of pictures )

I've been working on this lately--especially since I found that if I bring it to work to play with on my free time, it gets me less hassle than if I read a book! Go figure. My coworkers are strange.

But either way, it's starting to look quite pretty.

Wow, it's been a while since I posted anything! I've been busy, I guess... anyway.

It's been a while since I posted any finished objects, largely because I've been doing a lot of knitting these past few months and what cross-stitching I've been doing has mostly been wee kits that I keep for travelling and none of them have actually got finished. But I have been working on something a bit bigger lately and I discovered I did have another couple of finished objects that I'd just never posted about.

progress report! )

Sorry to doublepost, but it's been a while and though I've spent a lot of time lately knitting a Doctor Who scarf, so I don't have that much, I'd still like to put it up here anyway.

Oh, sweet! I'm so happy I found a comm on DW... is this in any way related to the one on LJ? Either way, I guess I'll put my update post here, too.

Basically I didn't post my updates anywhere for a while so I sort of have a bunch of them piled up. Here we go...

Lots of pictures and some chatter below the cut )

I forgot to post last week so this week's installment is a day early to avoid forgetting again. Still making decent progress, I ran out of the pale blue just after I made the last post, but I got some more of that and finished off all of that colour, only to run out of the medium blue...so now I need to track that down, hopefully I'll be able to get to a craft store soon as we're really nearly there!

Look out below! )

I've been working on this for a couple of years now, injury and bereavement leaving it put on hold, but having had the past week off work I've had a marathon stitch and made a load of progress. It's about 90% finished now, not including the backstitching and beads (so many beads, whyyyy?)

So...I got my project finished. Even finished in time to give as a winter festival gift to its intended recepient. I even remembered to take a photo of it! And then flickr broke itself for a bit leaving me unable to post/share photos. It's slightly less broken now. So I can finally share my completed project. Yay?!

So much for posting regular updates to keep me motivated, I keep forgetting to take photos. I really thought I had more photos from the intervening period that I just hadn't taken off my camera but nope, I haven't, so its a bit of a jump from my last post to this one...

progress has been made, honest! )

The last time I had a big cross-stich project to work on the regular weekly progress posts kept me motivated. So, as I've just started a project that I want finished by silly season, I thought I'd take up regular posting again to keep me working.

Thought I'd post an update on my latest needlework project: Ink Circles' Pot Luck.

It's on 28 ct Sand Cashel using Gloriana's Topiary.

I did a chunk of this on Sunday, hence the subject line.

I'm cross-stitching some towels for a friend's wedding present. I'm dithering however, about some design choices, and how they interact with time's endless forward march.

here are the pictures of the work in progress )

Mermaid of the Pearls is progressing, if very slowly. I am up to the point where I can start to see progress, and that she is actually looking more like she should.

I have spent a portion of tonight colour coding my working copies. White is now mostly coloured in on the top half of the pattern. It does make the pattern easier to read, I think.

Most of her skin is done. Now it is filling in the sparklies around it. I pulled out my thread heaven, which I think will help immensely!

Thanks for looking!
