Backstitch is done

On my WIP. I still have the rest of the border to cross-stitch, then the whole border to outline, which is going to be a lot of work and a lot more back stitching than the top half, which I just finished. I plan to make this into a large pinkeep to hang up. Since there will be little ornaments to put on this I cannot put it in a frame. I hope it turns out okay!

My First Scissor Keep

I made this for an enchange I took part in on the WOCS Forum. I had a hard time parting with it because I love the design and I must say it turned out pretty good for a first attempt.

My Current WIP

I have just discovered I can use my new iPhone to take pics and upload them directly onto my site!!! Sorry if the quality isn't as great, but I'm just excited I can do this!

Wow it's been 4 months!

It's been 4 months since I last wrote on this blog but I really haven't accomplished too much stitching-wise. I was very busy preparing for my wedding which took place August 2, 2008, and also I was trying to finish a project to help out a woman who is making a cross-stitch book. Unfortunately I didn't even have time to finish that before the due date. I'm just going to hang on to it and complete it for her to use in one of her future books.

I pulled my Christmas one back out and have been working on that for the past month. Although I look almost done I am far from finished. I cannot put any WIP pics up because I have lost the charger to my camera's battery and it's a special battery so you will have to do without pics for now. It is a Christmas advent calendar that the kids would really enjoy participating in so I will be disappointed if it's not finished on time. I am itching to get it done!

Got a little stitching done over the past few weeks

But unfortunately will not post the pics for a couple of weeks-months. I have been working on all my exchange pieces and it's a secret so I cannot post a pic until after the reveal. I made a pinkeep for the very first time. I enjoyed it but will have to get better at it, that way I can make lots and have lots of nice ones. I also made a scissor keep which I had a hard time mailing away. It was so nice, I just wanted to keep it for myself. Hopefully my partner likes it. That's the important part. I started on a Christmas calendar for the kids. Not much done on it to post a WIP but will soon. I am liking it but hating it at the same time. There is so much red, I figure I'll get the bulk of it done now, that way I don't have to go back to it!

It's been a while...

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anyting new on my blog! Well, the Mario and Luigi chart I have been working on for my son is almost done. I just need to go to Michael's so I can get a color that I need to fill in the blank squares. I also did a little bookmark that I recevied from nkbabe from the WOCS forum. It was very nice of her to send and I had to start it right away because it is so cute. I have also been working on the next piece for the Calendar Cats RR. Almost ready to post it off. And I am also ready to post off the pinkeep for the pinkeep exchange I am in. So, now do you see why I haven't been posting anything new? I've been too busy stitching! I found a pic of Footprints that I did a couple years ago. I gave it to my priest as a gift for baptizing me.

A Completed UFO!

I spent the week taking care of my two sick children who were home from school all week so I didn't get as much stitching in as I would have liked. However, I did finish The Last Supper! I just finished it last night. After that, I started on my pinkeep for the exchange and also started on a Mario and Luigi design for my son. I will take a WIP later on when I have a few more stitches in.

I also received my Just Because gift during the week. It is really cute. There is also 2 more sides to it that I could put a picture of my kids in or something like that.
