Big Bang Finished

No really, it’s all done.  My search for what I thought would be the perfect fabric turned up two others that worked out fairly well instead.  The only thing I didn’t plan right was the hanger.  I sewed two jump rings on back and thought I could run a ribbon through it and hang it up. Whoops!  Bunched right up.  Then I stuck a knitting needle through the rings and found the look I wanted.  So since I’m not parting with my knitting needle my brother will just have to find his own hanger.  Strangely I did make it work with a straw as well.  May be I’ll give him one of those. J

Also, I had it around so long I came up with a design for the title.

Between that and working on my WIPocalypse projects I managed a few more stitches on Be Hippie.  I finished the blue swirls in her top.  For my next trick I really need to get that last word done.

Happy stitching World.

Laid back IHSW

Not too bad.  I finished the yellow color I decided on for her top and started on the blue.  Plus, I picked out the other color I’m going to use for that last word (hippie).  So progress with the potential for more.  Always a good thing.

Here’s to a great week ahead.
Happy stitching World.

I started working on Be Hippie again the other night.  While I was stitching the yellow I was almost thinking it would have looked better on blue fabric.  Lucky for me, when I got it out in daylight I decided I liked it this way.  So I plan to work on it for IHSW this weekend and have more progress come Monday.

Happy stitching World.

WIPocalypse post #1 January

So it begins.  The epic battle to see which one of these three pictures I stop working on first. J  They’re neck and neck at the moment which is fine by me.  For all I haven’t done on them I was still ready to keep going.  Darn all those other things you’re supposed to do every day.

1. Summer Ball
I took this off the stretcher bars I had it tacked to so I could try to wash out this stain on the fabric.  That almost worked but I haven’t put it back on the stretcher bars yet.  I did manage to put some white in the mirror on the corner.

2. Mythical Dragon
I started this one in the middle.  Mostly because it seemed like the best place.  The green blob is going to grow up to become a dragon.  A very shiny dragon since it calls for two strands of filament and only one of floss.

3. Do Not Disturb
This one was started at the bottom.  Once again because it seemed like the best place and not just because I’m out to confuse myself.  That will happen soon enough I’m sure.

That’s all for now.  Next month’s update will (hopefully) have fewer words and more stitching to show.

Happy stitching World.

Big Bang finish.

I’ve finished stitching all the Big Bang Theory cast as created by Dork Stitch.  Not a half bad start to the New Year.  A little wording and some backing to finish it off and it will be ready to give away.  Thanks again Dork Stitch for such great patterns.

Now I’m off to drink some hot chocolate and finally get some stitching in for today.  See you all Monday for the first WIPocalypse update.
Happy stitching World.
