Happy Christmas Stitching

Happy Christmas Stitching

Finally I’ve finished page 21 of Computer Catastrophes! It wasn’t the actual stitching that took so long, my page on this has been disrupted by a very chilly stitching area.  I have my chair and my stand set up in front of the window so that I can make the most of the natural light.  No matter how good your stitching lamp is nothing can beat sunlight.  The trouble is that when the weather gets cold that area gets coldest first and sewing stops being fun.  I’ve moved my stand...

Slow Coach Couch Dragon

Couch Dragon update this week and I’ve finished pages 7 and 13 so I’ve now got the full width and height in which also means that I can see how much I have left to do to get this one finished. There isn’t a lot really just four full size pages and six partial pages so I’ve made the decision to stop rotating projects to concentrate on this one.  I feel a lot better when I don’t have so many to divide my time between so I’m going to try to get some finishes...

Long Time Stitching

Long Time Stitching

It’s been one of those busy weeks and this page on Couch Dragon took me a little longer than expected.  It’s been a while since I last worked on it so it took a little time to remember where all the symbols were on my needle organiser. The page is done now and my newest little dragon has a face and there’s another little guy in the picture on the wall.  I really love how these pictures stitch up, so colourful and bright which is why they make a nice little break from...

Whispers has a face

Mini Lost in You has been put on hold for a while at least until I can figure out what to do with all of that white.  So instead I’ve been working on Whispers, page 19 otherwise known as ‘face page’.  Actually it turned out to be full of confetti page and because I didn’t have as much stitching time as I would have liked it took a bit longer to finish.  Well not that long really because 8 days for a page is still really quick.  Possibly the television being flooded with...

Change of Plan

Change of Plan

It should have been another week on Computer Catastrophes this week but I had a bit of a falling out with the fabric so rather than spend a week fighting it I decided to swap to Whispers for a page instead.  The fabric on Computer Catastrophes is very soft after working on the magic guide fabric and I prefer the firmer fabric I’ll go back to the page the next time it comes up or if I finish the next page quickly. Anyway I switched to Whispers, still a soft fabric but I’ve got...
