I know that I haven't posted in almost 18 months but that doesn't mean that I wasn't stitching. I think it was shortly after my last post that I found out I was going to be an AUNT!!!! Needless to say, I went into baby gift stitching mode since she is the first grandbaby on my side of the family. I stitched the Just Nan Baby Celebration pattern for my niece. No photo to show for this unfortunately.
I also stitched Forest Friends from Cross Stitch Crazy. It only six different animals that I stitched multiple times to create a cute afghan. Here is the finished project:
Then because she was going to need a stocking for Christmas, but she will also celebrate Hanukkah, I needed to find a stocking that merged both holidays. I found the perfect stocking but it wasn't cross stitch it was needlepoint. I've never needlepointed before, but that didn't stop me at all. I started on 5/20/17 and finished on 11/18/17. Here is the finished project for my sweet Hazel.
In the last 18 months, I did get some stitching done for myself. As a thread a day, I finished Ink Circles, A Spirited Mandala with the suggested floss on 32ct overdyed linen in Voodoo.
I also finished a second thread a day, Ink Circles, Cirque des Carreaux on 32ct linen in Vintage Cedar Plank with Threadworx Black Forest. I started it on 8/31/16 and finished on 11/18/17.
In addition to the stitching, I got engaged, planned a wedding, got married, honeymooned and, oh yeah, started my wedding sampler. The picture is after one week of thread a day and twenty hours of work. More on the twenty hours in the next post. :)
I will post my WIPocalypse 2018 opening post later this weekend. Happy stitching!!!!
