A Mystery Finish

Over the weekend, for IHSW, I worked on my mystery project I started last month.  As of today I can declare it finished.

This (in case you were wondering) is a tricorder based on the original Star Trek series.  It is from the aptly titled book “Star Trek Cross Stitch” by John Lohman.  A very cool book filled with many more patterns trying to entice me.

In the mean time I should get back to everything else.

Theme-A-Licious Somewhere in the middle of September

I finished stitching this piece yesterday. (Honest) While it’s not quite ready to post on the Halloween SAL, it’s perfect for Theme-A-Licious.
Look – words!

Ok, one word.  This is by Glory Bee from the 2013 JCS Halloween Special.  The colors are all from my stash.

The “Wow I want to start something” part of me wants to start a Lizzie Kate piece from one of the Tiny Tidings for my September ornament.  To which the “Geez I need to finish something” part shakes its head at.  So I ignored both parts (and the shreds of my common sense) and bought into the new Lizzie Kate Christmas Mystery Sampler.  I’m calling it a birthday present to myself.  When I started it yesterday, I actually tried to measure out the spacing.  Which was a good thing because I found out the fabric piece was short on one side.  Not cool peeps!  And the LNS never called me to say it was in.  So I’m like a week behind. Good thing I know it won’t be finished by Christmas.  I have it started.  And the moral of all that babbling is nonexistent because I’ll probably start the Tiny Tidings piece soon too. :-)

YOTA Purple Progress

One of these days when I look at this and think I could do something besides the purple I will.  Until then, look, more purple! J

Theme-A-Licious August Wrap Up

I managed to put my long weekend to a little bit of good use and actually get in a finish.

This is my Theme-A-Licious ornament finish (for August).


It’s called Festive Flamingo (clever name) from the Stoney Creek book, Tropical Christmas.

Stitched on 14 count Polar Ice, because that’s what I had and I wanted to see what it looked like.  Not bad, as it turns out.
