I had posted my long WIP list and since then I’ve managed to tick off a few of the projects. I’ve been determined to finish some of the things I had in progress before starting anything new.
First up is my completed iPhone case. I am so in love with how this turned out. I loved doing the rainbow colors, I haven’t done it in awhile but I always love how it turns out. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any triangles, so that was also nice to get back to doing more geometric cross stitches. I’ve been doing so many more realistic things lately.
Next, I finally finished all the squares for Evie’s blanket! It’s been a long time coming, but now I can move on to the dreaded joining stage. Every square is different, it’s going to be really difficult for me to decide how I want them laid out so the color is balanced throughout.
I’m also extremely behind on the Christmas Stitchalong, but I’m slowly getting there. I finished the first week last night, so I’m hoping to finish up week two and three this week. I really haven’t done a whole lot of embroidery so I’m trying to use this as a chance to experiment and learn as much as I can. I really love the satin stitch, but I think it’s more successful on the mushroom than on the star. I found that it was more difficult to do the straight lines and crisp corners of the star. While I really love that motif, I preferred stitching the ones that required less precision.
I have also been working hard on a secret project that I’m almost ready to show off! So stay tuned for a big announcement this week!
