About Nikki

A crafter of many years, now using this blog to share my ongoing projects and tips for others to enjoy. I mainly concentrate now on Heaven and Earth cross stitch designs - with several projects on the go at any one time. Also often found knitting shawls and socks, papercrafting. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.

Trick or Treat Dec 20

The last month of the year and my last two weeks on Trick or Treat for 2020. At the beginning of December I was tempted by the prospect of finishing the two pages that I had already done some stitching […]

A Stitch In Time Nov 2020

My goal for A Stitch In Time this month was to finish page 2. It’s always difficult to gauge how long it will take because I’ll sometimes run into a block of extreme confetti and be having to change threads […]

I was going to switch over to Nightmare this week but instead I decided to stick with my original rotation and continued with Unicorn instead. Because of the shape of the design there are a lot of partial pages so […]

It’s the last turn on the rotation for this project this year. I was able to finish page 15 during the two weeks and make some good progress on page 16. I knew that the collar would be full of […]
