I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and fantastic New Years!
I haven’t had a whole lot to share over the past couple of months. I went from my crazy daily knitting to cross-stitching again. I must say that it’s been a complete change of pace and a little nice to do something that I wasn’t obligated to do or needed to for customers. As much as I love my little business and appreciate everyone who buys my cards and scarves, it’s sometimes nice to take a bit of a break. It’s a been a good few months and I’ve completed a project that’s been on my to-do list for years! The downside is that I’m not sure whether people really want to see work in progress pictures of a design they wouldn’t know even when complete! :)\
To explain, the cross-stitch that I just completed was one for my video-game loving husband. The design was of Samus, a character from one of his favourite games, Super Metroid. Here it is!
We haven’t managed to get it cleaned, ironed or framed yet but…baby steps!! I love how the colours just seem to pop off the black fabric. It was a great way to get back into things. Let’s see what will come up next!
Below is my first of two cross-stitch patches for the Pokemon quilt we will be making and auctioning off for the purpose of donating towards Japan relief/repair. One more to go for August. Sadly, I’ve had a few wrist issues lately which has halted my progress a little. I’m hoping that a bit of rest will bring it right up to speed again so I can keep plowing through!! And now on to some pretty pretty cards!!
As I’ve mentioned a few times, I’m cross-stitching several patches to be made into quilts that will be auctioned off for charity. Some of the quilts will be auctioned off for Child’s Play, a charity that supports children’s hospitals across the world. My first square for this project was of Mario and Bowser! It’s finally done and I’ve posted it below. I’ve started my second cross-stitch for this group as well. Look forward to some excellent Plants vs. Zombies action in hopefully a bit over a month!
Well, the Felicity Wishes fairy cross-stitch that I’ve been working on for two years is finally complete, framed and is hanging on my wall in my craft room along with all the Felicity Wishes prints that I bought long ago in university. Now the wall is complete! It’s so exciting to finish a project you’ve been working on for that long!
