Rinfrescata: on books, news and birds

Hello! Remember me? 😉 I used to love stitching and blogging about stitching up until the Christmas holidays? 😜 I had to take some time off needles and threads because of a series of factors including a fiercely piercing pain in my shoulders that just wouldn’t let me stitch for more than an hour and…… Continue reading Rinfrescata: on books, news and birds

Time to wrap it up!

I promised you a weekly update, but guess what? I just got a finish, so.. 😉 This is the bonus design to Trick-or-Treat Costume Party Club by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. I stitched it almost entirely as charted, but I had to do my thing with colours (that orange and purple look so good, I had…… Continue reading Time to wrap it up!

from A to J – the TAC catch up game

It’s here! It’s here! The giant catch up post for TAC is here! Last week the blog reached its 4th anniversary 🎂🎂🎂🎂 and although celebrations this year are slightly 😱 (sense the irony here) toned down, I felt there were a few things I truly owed you and it was high time I put things right. It’s going to be…… Continue reading from A to J – the TAC catch up game

watching chubby Taras grow

So far this year I’ve been busy working on many Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery projects (no change from 2015 here 😀), but after months and months of selecting colours, waiting for good daylight to do so, using the right length & variegation, etc. I felt the need to transition to some easy breezy solid stitching for…… Continue reading watching chubby Taras grow

2nd rundown post (bimonthly update on finishes)

We’ve reached the end of the month and with that I ought to deliver my bi-monthly report on stitching.

Oh yes! – Of felt, housemaids and finished rodents.

It’s with great pleasure that I can inform you that as of yesterday afternoon, my Cindermouse is finally finished – broom and all! 😀🎉🐭👗 One thing I changed, possibly my only alteration to the project, was not to sew the dress onto her: I have plans to make her at least 3 different outfits and although I want…… Continue reading Oh yes! – Of felt, housemaids and finished rodents.
