The Night WIP Update

I have an update for my most recent large project. It might not seem like a lot, but I did a lot of block stitching of a couple colors.

Alright, now for some patterns. Random patterns...hope you all don't mind.

That's it for this week. Happy Stitching!!

Catching Up

Since I posted last, I got a boyfriend, moved out of my parent's house, freaked out over reality, moved to a different shift, continued to freak out over reality, and quit my job that was depressing me to the core of my being. Now, I am unemployed and looking for work with my boyfriend and have finally found myself with time on my hands to do whatever I want for a little while.  Hopefully, neither one of us is unemployed for too long, but it's nice to have this free time after working for two years, pretty much straight. Stitching wise, I've been productive. I haven't been stitching as much as I would like to, but life does that to things that you like doing.

First, I would like to present what I have managed to finish.  This first one is a dragon I stitched up just before moving out. I found the pattern while I was in Florida last Thanksgiving and it was a nice easy piece to do after the monstrosity of the Chandelier piece.

These next pictures are of the projects I did for the Sprite Stitch Mega Swap this year.  I have yet to receive mine, but I am sure they will come in due time....that or they were lost in the mail. Anyway, I stitched up a Sailor Moon collage of her and her brooches, a Elder Scrolls quest marker magnet, and a Tardis in a hoop.  I took closeup shots of the stitchings in the collage.

Next I did a small owl. I got the kit in a Just Cross Stitching Magazine that came with patterns and thread.

Lastly, my boyfriend insisted that I stitch things up for Halloween since it's our favorite holiday and I couldn't refuse him.  The first one is a small one and the other one is much larger. He framed it for me for Sweetest Day this past Saturday while I was away with my parents for the weekend.

I did most of these projects while in the midst of stitching something else and I have a WIP for that.  It's called Night and it's a pretty big project. It's coming along, though, and I like stitching it while I have the chance.

I have a few patterns for the world, too.  They're characters from the anime/manga Chobits.

Alright, that's it for today.  I will try to be better with posting, but no guarantees.  Happy Stitching!!

Chandelier Finish

I finished the Chandelier piece today, finally. It looks absolutely AMAZING in real life! The pictures don't do it any justice.  I also took detail shots of some of the beading.  The chandelier was particularly tedious to put together.

I have another finish.  This one I've had done for a few weeks, now, but just now had the time to post it.  It is the Halloween fairy I posted a WIP of a while ago.

I'm in the middle of another piece, but since it's almost done, I won't post it until I finish it.

Patterns!! Only two this time.

That's it for me.  Happy Stitching!!

Finishes for 2013

I won't repost any finishes that I did because that would be redundant.  This next few things are pieces that I finished basically within the last month. There's only one thing that I didn't finish in the last month, but I haven't posted it yet, so that's okay.

Anyway...first thing: Christmas gifts.  I made Christmas gifts for people I work with that I hadn't already made gifts for in the past.  Here's the result:

This first one glows-in-the-dark.

This one is meant to be an ornament but I didn't have anything to use as a hanger type thing.

These next two pieces are technically WIPs, but they're done to the best of my ability at the moment.  The first one is done because I don't know what else to do with it.  It can either be a magnet, or I could leave as is and not worry about it.  The second one is only partially done because I got it in a kit and the company didn't put enough of a particular floss color to finish it and I only just got around to asking about it.

Now for patterns.  Again, no theme....

That's it for today.  Happy New Year everyone and Happy Stitching!!
