Cross Stitch

Good morning everyone,

I hope this blog post finds you well. Today, I’m excited! I can get back into stitching my Disney Dreams kits & finishing my Chรขtelaine ๐Ÿ™‚

Do Bears? is finished washed (that video will be up later this week, lots of editing) I ran out of thread for it so while I waited, I stitched some on my Mini Mandala…


So I’ve almost finished the outside corners!! Not long now…

& here is my finished Do Bears? LOVED stitching this!


So this is it from me today… Happy stitching ๐Ÿ™‚




I feel that it’s about time Do Bears? starts to come to an end… It has been 14 months since I started it and I’m glad to say the end is now finally in sight! Sunday nightย I finished the border & a couple of motifs too! Which means, I don’t have that much to do (YAY!!) I’m hoping to get all the motifs done by Sunday so then all I’ll have to do is, the back stitch my initials & date ๐Ÿ™‚

There is only one slight little problem… Yesterday I ran out of thread. YUP no more stitching bears atm. So while I wait for my threads to arrive (hoping today or tomorrow) I have pulled out my Chรขtelaine to work on. Which means, there will be an update when I film my May update ๐Ÿ™‚


This is the last update of the full piece I will post. Next one will be have last I talking about Do Bears. I am planning on doing a video on how I wash my projects, once it’s fully completed ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a good rest of your week.



Hello fellow stitchers!

How are you all? Getting much stitching done?

So today i have to share with you all my day 10 update (even though it’s the 12th now!) Again, I haven’t stitched much in the last few days. It’s just been one of those months where Iย haven’t had much time to stitch…. BUT I do have some progress on Do Bears? and…. A NEW START! I seriously did not plan on that at all ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here is Do Bears…. Not a whole lot done but, I have started on the left hand side!


Here is my new start! I’ve wanted this kit for awhile now… When it came on Friday, I did debate on whether I should start it or not & as you can see starting it won! It’s called Past, Present, Forever & even though i haven’t stitched much on it, It is a really fun stitch ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be posting a video later in the week with my last update. I can’t believe it’s almost over! I love seeing what people are stitching ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m off to stitch some more & watch some of The Game Of Thrones. Happy stitching ๐Ÿ™‚



Stitch Maynia Update!

Good morning everyone!

So I thought I’d post about my progress with Do Bears? after the 5th & 10th days, & then do a video on the 15th day.

I didn’t any stitching done over the weekend. I was out all day both days with hubby ๐Ÿ™‚ I got my hair cut & colour put in (purple!) we went shopping, & we saw the new Avengers movie. So I stitched mostly yesterday (Tuesday). I feel i got a lot done & I’m really happy with my progress…

I’ve finished the whole right side of the tree now (minus the back stitch). For the next few days my plan is to stitch one of the boxes on the left & do some motifs on the left of the tree.

That’s it from me today! Happy stitching ๐Ÿ™‚



April WIP Update

Hello Stitchers! I hope you are all well ๐Ÿ™‚ So it’s that time again to share with you all my monthly WIP update! As I said in my update video Do Bears took over the month! Even when I thought I should have a break & stitch Pinocchio, I ended up making a mistake & had to unpick his hand. So now it’t the 1st of May & Do Bears is well on it’t way to a FINISH!!! I am so very excited about that. It has been a WIP now for just over a year & I feel that it’s time for it to be displayed on my wall! I am actually stoked that I have stitched as much as I have for the past month! I’m really excited & I think I have about a month left at most on it… What do you think? Will I have a finish by the end of MAY?!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s a very sunny day here in Melbourne ๐Ÿ™‚ Here are the photos I promised in my video. Sorry about the quality with the tree, when I took the photo yesterday, It was very overcast & this was the best picture I could get.

March Rotation Update

Hey everyone,

I hope you are all doing well ๐Ÿ™‚ I was hoping to film a few videos this week, but I got sick instead. I have a sore throat & can’t talk much. I’ll film next week when I can talk without pain ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyway…

So I thought I’d give you an update on how I’m going with my WIP rotation and my Q-snap cover making failure…

If you haven’t seen my rotation plan for March yet, it’s in my previous post…

The rotation started really well. I got everything I wanted to get finished on Do Bears & Mandala 05. I made realistic goals & did them both! I’m so excited that they are both now where I want them… I have 7 days left on Do Bears, 8 on Pinocchio & 4 on Mandala 05.

The only one this month that won’t get much progress done is Red. I was supposed to work on her these last 4 days but with being sick, I just haven’t felt like stitching her ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I do hope that I get to stitch some of Pinocchio as it’s his turn tomorrow. Or at least on Saturday.

Onto the cover failure… I decided that I wanted to try to make a cover for my Q-snap last weekend… I got everything for it (how cute is this fabric?!)


And then realised 1. The fabric was too small for 11×11 so i decided to sew two lengths together & 2. My machine is so soo old it doesn’t sew properly! So its going to have to wait until October…. (hubby said he’ll buy me one for my birthday:))

This is it for me today… Sorry that there is no video this week. I was really looking forward to filming too ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I hope you have a good rest of the week/weekend ๐Ÿ™‚
