Quick and Easy

I did it! I finished my Pansy’s! I am so glad it is over, not sure what I will do with it, like so many of my projects I never know what to do with them. I have few friends and family and alot of people in their twenty’s don’t want cross-stitching in their home. SAM_1198

I finished that Wednesday, then I went on the hunt for something else to start. I wanted something simple and easy after dealing with this stupid thing for so long! I decided to do up the kit I received in my “The World of Cross Stitching” magazine last month.  They were easy and a nice change to actually count again! I must say I prefer counting to a stamped pattern.


They are cute little cards that I can use and they look nice to actually be finished. So now I am on a hunt for a new project. I am not sure if I want to buy a new kit or do something from one of my many magazines. Whatever I decide I need to go out and look for something, I don’t have any aida left so I will need to buy supplies no matter what.

Which do you prefer, kits or doing something yourself?

Back to this…

Wow, it’s been a very long time since I have updated this blog, but I feel I need to get back into it. It is a great way to keep track of my projects and what I am doing. So I went back to find any pictures I might have taken in the past year plus. It appears I have only really been working on one project since then. I did finish the lazy cat so I will have to get a picture of that.

So I have been working on Pansy Profusion.





I am working on the back-stitch now for this project and I will be very happy when it is over! This was a stamped pattern with no counting required, and I really didn’t enjoy doing it. I thought I would but I didn’t.

SAM_1188Next up is a short project I took camping with me and finished last week. It was a cute little stitch, wasn’t that difficult. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was working with the glitter filament. But over all I am happy with it. Not sure how to finish it, but isn’t that my problem with everything I do?

So I am hoping to get my Pansy’s finished and maybe work on a actual finish!
