Funny, you’d think anything would make white stand out and yet.

My final post for the month and the SAL adds a little blue to the white.  Soon it will become something more.  Thanks to Pull the Other Thread for hosting the SAL, it’s been fun.

In the meantime

Happy Halloween!

Smalls SAL - October

Here’s my finish for the month.


It was part of a free kit that came with the July issue of Cross Stitcher last year.  Angela Poole’s design has a little more backstitch than mine, but I like my funky flower.

Stitch from Stash October

What did I do this month?  As reported earlier, I finished the Santa & Reindeer.  Before that though, there was Batman.

 In the WIP’s and Starts column we have these.

Starry Night with Tardis is on the left.  The start is Reflections of Paris by Ink Circles.  I started it because I bought some Carrie’s Creation Thread online for a Halloween picture.  Turned out Midnight was blue not black.  So I started this instead.


 A magazine, a pattern and 3 skeins of the aforementioned floss.  Total spent $22.00.  I’m going to claim this as budget not bonus.  That way if I find the other British Cross Stitch magazines I think I want; I can use the bonus then.

Speaking of British Cross Stitch magazines.

A blog friend of mine, Kate from The Suddenly Kate Show, was clearing out some of her stash.  So I immediately asked for half. (Such restraint, Ha)  She agreed to send them and I paid the postage. Most of it I think, exchange rates you know.  Thanks Kate!

So I finished Santa.

My pattern came from the book “365 Quick Christmas Cross Stitch Designs by Kooler Design Studios.  Though there was an earlier comment on a post that says you can get the pattern on Kooler Designs website.

Next start more white on white at the moment. Hopefully more color next week.

What’s smaller than this mini?  The amount of time I’ve had to work on it. Ha.  Still the back stitch on the outside is done so I think the end may be in sight.

Let’s face it.  If this week had gone as well as last week, I probably still wouldn’t be done with this.  But it is progressing.

Here’s to a great stitching week ahead.

Happy stitching World.

Mini Mega Madness Post #1

The madness begins.  I had to get some color onto Santa because white on white is as hard to see as it is to stitch.


This little Santa and reindeer (yet to come) are from Kooler Design Studio’s 365 Quick Christmas Cross Stitch Designs.
