Mysterious Halloween Town is done!!! Right in time before Halloween! This gave me a good amount of motivation to bring back an old WIP…that I finished as well!!! Today is the last day of the Countdown to Halloween box by StitchyBox and I will surely miss it. I loved this concept of discovering throughout the month a great selection of new products and ideas to include in my stitching.
So yes, this is October, Halloween month, and time to enjoy all the spooky things if you are into it! I want to work on all my Halloweeny projects and I am already blown away by my 1st week of stitchy suprises included in my Countdown to Halloween box by SitchyBox!
Fall is in the air, landscape will soon be re-inventing itself in new colors. Time to think about finishing some projects and dream about the new ones for next year…
My Cross Stitch WIPs are making me very happy and I can’t wait to have some of them finished and hanging on the walls so I can keep enjoying them everyday. Today…I also have a knitting FO!
How was your summer? Mine has been amazing so far : great weather, fun activities with family, (a lot of) good food, (a bit of) sport…and a few hours of cross stitch! I have been mainly working on one WIP which is now a fully finished object!
End of April and beginning of May have been quite busy so far. I managed to share my night-craft-time between my knitting and cross stitching so there is some satisfying progress on both 🙂
Happy Easter Everyone!
Good Bye Winter, Hello Spring! However, if all Winter were like the one we had this year in Montreal, I wouldn’t mind Winter at all anymore!
Here is a quick review of March.Cross stitch bug got me all March long as I have been stitching almost every day this month maybe allocating a bit too much sleeping time to stitching… At the same time, I have been watching a bunch of Floss Tube videos in order to discover the world of cross stitching : terminology, fabrics, threads, beads, tools, designers, technics, patterns…I am loving this so much! Fun fact: when I started stitching at the beginning of the year, I thought this was gonna be a not expensive hobby, but… let me tell you…no, I was wrong! Pretty fabrics, flosses, beads and patterns have a price which totally makes sense but definitely not what one would think in the first place.
With so much stitching, no surprise, I have a Finished Object : ”Avengers Assemble!” by Pixels in stitches. Those Marvel characters are really cute and I am planning to frame this project next month to hang in our TV room.
Of course, as soon as I had finished, I had to start another project. I chose Clouds factory stitch along ”Postcards from the World”. The final pattern is made of 12 blocks, one block of the pattern representing a cute post card design is released the first day of each month. I completed the first three blocks for January, February and March respectively representing Venise, Paris and London…and I am now ready for April release!
Happy Knitting and Stitching!
