Stitching & Showers

I am at the halfway point on my niece's birth sampler, just in time for her baby shower!

The favors were designed with the idea that my sister dearly loves cacti and this baby is going to be a "Georgia Peach!"

The cake was divine 

and what party would be complete without a candy bar!

For Those We Have Lost

Red, White & Blue by the Cricket Collection was started in October 2017 as a Memorial Piece for the victims of the Route 91 Shooting in Las Vegas. Stitched on 28ct Thyme, it took 12 days to complete.
As the 1 year anniversary draws closer I will be reminded every time I look at this project that we are and forever will be Vegas Strong!

MIss Mariposa

The Mother has begun a "frankenstitch" of sorts, devising a way to combine the bottom half of Mirabilia's Queen Mariposa with the torso and head of Miss Christmas!
The Skin and the butterflies are one over one, the tiny delicate stitches creating a painted effect. I joked with the Mother that it is only a matter of time before she attempts an entire Mira with one strand of DMC floss over one strand of 32ct fabric! The Maiden

Skull on Display

I really cannot get past how amazing this design looks in this frame, the Mother's finish is superb for this Skull!

Foam board and pinning make this look professionally done, I may need to reconsidered the sticky board! The Maiden

World Cross Stitch Day

World Cross Stitch day has come and gone, but what better Day than August 10th to spend some long distance stitchy time with new friends! The plan was to meet at Hawk Run Hollow, where I began at the Shores.
Nessa (from Nessa's Needleminders on Etsy and Facebook) spent the day preparing for Halloween in the Hollow and added a cauldron to the d├ęcor!

Fingers worked to the bone!

The Mother flew through this Skull Banner in a matter of days! Stitched on Under the Sea fabric's Hecate.

Now where did I put mine...

Happy 4th of July!

I wanted to finish Red, White & Blue for the 4th, but alas... 
This Cricket said No!
