Stitching Progress

The first photo is of the progress I made before the Facebook SAL this past weekend. I'm really enjoying watching how well the colors are working together..and how nice the design is turning out.


Posted by Picasa

The second picture is the progress I made during the SAL. I wished I had gotten more done but I figure that some is better than none :D

Finally have a picture of my Grandma's Mothers Day present. I love how it looks in the black framing that I chose but had my parents frame for me.

The second picture is my first attempt at a Biscornu which I did for my Mom's Mothers Day present...I think it turned out pretty well for a first attempt..I didn't put a button in the middle like I have seen before just liked the look better without.

New updates

Well I finished my Grandma's present but forgot to take a picture of it so will do that soon...but I have been working on the Ink Circles Mystery Stitch A Long..I worked on it so much today my shoulder aches..I really need to get a bigger scroll frame to fit the fabric rather than the hoop but I forgot to get a dowel the other day. Hopefully soon I can work on it even faster. This pic is my latest of what I have done so far.

Stitching Updates

I know it has been quite a while since I have posted anything besides the weekly SBQ so I decided to show off some stitching that I have been doing lately...the first one is a present for my grandma for Mothers Day...I'm not sure of the actual title of the sampler but the saying that will be on it fits her very well. It will say..Grandma's are just antique little girls.

The next picture was taken about a week ago showing that I just started the Ink Circles BAP's my first SAL and I am really enoying seeing everyones colors..on the left side of the picture there is a skein of thread that is cut off
:( but it is black..the rest of the colors are pretty true to what I chose :)

This last picture is of the progress I have made so far..unfortunately I am going to have to set it aside for a little while and work more on the Mother's Day project as I am a slow stitcher and am afraid I won't get it done in time if I continue working on both :(


What items do you consider essential to your needlework that you keep
in your stitching bag?

My stitching essentials are..extra needles, a pencil with an eraser, highlighter, thread heaven, scissors, seam ripper, needle threader and tweezers.

This week's SBQ is:

When you stitch a pattern that you have downloaded do you print out
the pattern or do you stitch directly from your computer screen?

I print the pattern. I think I would have a lot harder time following the pattern if I wasnt able to mark off what I had done.

After you stitch a pattern or kit, what do you do with it?

So far I have kept all the patterns I have finished in an old shoebox in case I ever want to stitch it again.

Harley Davidson Flaming Eagle

This is a project I started last year..was using only 2 strands but the black didn't cover well enough so ended up ripping out what I had done and using 3 strands instead for all colors. The image unfortunately doesn't show how vibrant the colours in this are. I'm actually starting to enjoy working on this more as I'm starting to see the wings of the eagle form.

This week's SBQ was suggested by Outi and is:

What is your favorite past time while stitching? Do you just enjoy
silence, listen to music/audiobooks or do you "watch" TV/movies? Do
you have specific favorites you listen to/watch while stitching?

I either have music or tv on while stitching. I tend to stitch a lot faster than I do if its really quiet. I really don't listen or watch anything too specific when I stitch I guess it is more background noise than anything for me.
