WIP Wednesday- cross stitch edition

It feels like I haven’t been doing a lot of cross stitch here, but somehow quite a bit more of the cats cross stitch has been happening (not that you can tell in pics 😛 ). I’ve nearly finished the sitting down one (I’m half way through its tail, which is the last bit to do):

 

However, it will now get put away, because I finally have a date for the wedding, which means I need to get back onto the wedding sampler…*giggles nervously*

Here’s where I’m up to so far:

I have a year(ish) to finish this thing- the wedding is planned for August next year. That seems like a long time away, but that’s 21 squares still to do. Which means I need to run an average of two squares a month consistently to hit this goal… this is gonna be fun. Other projects? What other projects? Wish me luck peoples!

WIP Wednesday- Eyes edition

I spy, with my little eye(s)…

This is Rumpelteazer, I have decided and the photo really doesn’t do it justice. Her eyes really seem to glow, it’s amazing. I don’t think it’s glow-in-the-dark thread, just really reflective. It’s amazing. I don’t want to stop working on them, but there are other things I need to do as well. Ahh well, the quicker I do them the quicker I can come back to this beauty 🙂

Start it Saturday- black on black edition

So…..for a variety of reasons the wedding sampler has been put away for the time being, and I decided to start something all for myself 😀 (I say that like it’s a good thing…)

The problem? It’s black aida. Black and shades of grey thread and quite a lot of blank space between all the stitches…

The good thing? No backstitch. And it’s going to look hella rad when it’s done. I just have to survive the black on black stitching first…
