Space Cross Stitch Flash Card Patterns Now In The Shop!

I've gotten a lot of people asking about the space cross stitch flash card patterns and I have really been dragging my feet on it. I felt like I should wait until I had the whole set but that is going to take forever so I finally decided to just get on with it and put the ones I have already done up in the shop. You can buy each of them individually or all 5 at a discounted price. There are free patterns to download here, and patterns to purchase here at my Etsy. ... Read More

WIP Finish! – Astronaut Cross Stitch

One of my 2015 goals is to finish some WIPs. I left it kind of open ended with no specific number, but when I went and made a list I realized just how many projects I have going on. I counted 15, but I'm sure there are a few others that I'm forgetting about. I set the loose goal of finishing one WIP a month, which I think is definitely realistic. I've already finished my first project of the year and I feel really silly that it was cast aside for so long. The last time I blogged about the Astronaut cross stitch flash card was in February of last year, so it's been ... Read More

Bedpop Show

Jamie Chalmers from Mr. X Stitch curated a show in Bedford England and I am so excited to have four pieces in it! One of my 2014 goals was to display my work in an art show, and this week I'll be in two! My mother-in-law, Kathie Webb, also has some embroideries in the show from her collection Verbal. I really wish I could go check out this show myself, it looks amazing. All of the pictures that Jamie has posted on Facebook are great, there are so many talented stitchers on display and I'm honored to be apart of it! I'm finishing up my projects for a ... Read More

WIP Wednesday – A is for Astronaut

I was hoping to do a space flashcard a month, but I'm way behind schedule for that. I am in the process of working on one though and I'm really loving it. I decided to go back and start at the beginning of the alphabet, so I'm doing A for astronaut. I'm hoping to finish it up over the weekend, but I can't decide what color to use for the text. I'm torn between the blue or red. Thoughts? ... Read More

H is for Hubble

I didn't finish this one in time for the contest, but here's another one done! I was working on it at 11pm on Sunday night and the deadline was 6am Monday morning. I knew it just wasn't happening and went to bed. I wasn't too disappointed, I managed to finish 3 others, and while I like the Hubble, the Galaxy one is definitely my favorite. I'm still planning on finishing the whole alphabet but I'm going to put it on the back burner for a bit. I have some WIP I want to finish and a list of Christmas projects I need to start tackling. I will definitely come back to ... Read More

G is for Galaxy

Here is my third completed cross stitch flash card for the &stitches back to school contest. I have been working on a list of words to make a complete alphabet, I am really loving making these and want to have a whole set! Josh has been making these patterns and he's doing such an awesome job, I love them. I think this one is my favorite, but I do love the first two a lot. I started a fourth one that I should have finished by the deadline Monday, so stay tuned. ... Read More

Flash Cards!

There is a back to school flash card contest going on over at &stitches. I really wanted to enter and make flash cards for both girls to add to their ever growing monogram collection. I've had so many other projects I needed to finish first that I only got around to starting these recently. I'm furiously stitching away at an attempt to finish a third flash card before the deadline tomorrow, we'll see what happens with that. But here are the two I have finished. I knew I wanted to do a science theme and immediately started brainstorming options. I almost did E ... Read More
