Nearly one wife complete…

Just a little more and then Catherine of Aragon will be complete.

Henry VIII & Wives, May 15, 2011

I’ve started using my Tanto thread organizer for this project, since the DMC one provided with the kit doesn’t work very well with the partially used threads. I used adhesive labels to label each [...]

Another Henry update

Picture from last week, right now more than half the dress is finished. It’s really nice how fast this is stitching up – although it will slow down once I do all the backstitching for this part.

Sandy Littlejohn’s Summer Ball looks really neat, another project [...]

Henry VIII & Wives update

Here’s a Henry VIII update, it’s coming along slowly with all that backstitch!

Henry VIII & Wives, April 20, 2011

My local Michaels has a lot of cross stitch kits marked down by 75%, it seems like they are getting rid of that section as it’s shrunk by a huge margin. Picked [...]

Henry VIII & Wives

Here’s my newest project, since I can’t find my working copy of the Peacock’s Lagoon pattern. I’ve always been a big fan of history, and ordered this kit last year after it got rereleased by DMC.

Henry VIII & Wives, March 18, 2011

There’s a healthy amount of backstitching, French knots and fractionals [...]

Cirque des Cercles is finished!

And here it is!

Cirque des Cercles, March 11, 2011

I’m not sure what project will be next.

I haven’t updated in a very long time, but here it is!

Cirque des Cercles, October 19, 2010

Hope to finish this before the year is over!

I’m not sure that I’ll finish this in a month.  February wasn’t a very good month for me, didn’t do any stitching for more than 2 weeks due to family things coming up.

Cirque des Cercles, March 2, 2010

Another project that’s caught my eye is one of the Maria Diaz Art Deco [...]

Cirques des Cercles update

Hoping to finish Cirque des Cercles in the next two months, we’ll see!  So far it seems like it is taking about a page per month, give or take a little.

Cirque des Cercles, January 31, 2010

Very tempting to add more patterns to the goals list, but I think I will try [...]

Past the halfway mark now on Cirque des Cercles

I haven’t had much free time to stitch lately, but just finished half the floss so figured it was time for an update.

Cirque des Cercles, January 20, 2010

Hopefully when things have calmed down I’ll have more time to [...]

Cirque des Cercles, December 7, 2009

Finally got started on Cirque des Cercles again, about 40% done now.  December will probably be just as busy as November though, but hopefully will finish page 3 out of 6 this [...]
