Hey everyone! Guess who had had enough free evenings (four, to be exact) to finish a tiny project for Valentine’s day? That’s me! Since my little boy decided to go to bed really early, at 6 pm (and to wake at 5 am, but that is another story), I finally have some time to spend on stuff I like 🙂 Luckily that small design doesn’t need much.
The pattern can be found in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/261506853/ . Be sure to use the coupon listed in shop’s description!
The colors are off, though, I could not find my stash because of moving from one flat to another, and just grabbed the available colors.
The stitching is mounted in a little wooden hoop.
Hope you were not troubled to much with my absence? Being utterly and completely pregnant, I had spent some months feeeling morning sickness just by looking at my laptop, set aside opening it 🙂 But hopefully I am through that period now – and back to stitching!
Mother’s Day is advancing on us, and Alexandra asked me to make a custom pattern for her Mom, featuring the phrase, Home is whre Mom is. She sent me a photo of her finished stitching, and it looks great, agree?
I totally love the way it turned out. Alexandra, thank you so much for sharing! 🙂
So if you, by any chance, stitched some of my patterns, don’t hesitate to send a photo – I would really enjoy seeing how they come to life, and sharing the photos with the rest of the world.
First of all I would like to share this beautiful stitching sent in by Kelsey. She used the Skyrim logo pattern to make a little pillow. And it also glows in the dark! 🙂
Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Great stitching of my Vault Boy pattern made by Pixel, Ponto e Cruz (Instagram @pixelpontoecruz).
This post is doubly amazing, as it is a) a photo of my pattern coming to life and b) a reminder about my wonderful Singapore vacation. Or rather all of my Singapore vacations, as it is one of the cities that I love to come back to.

And – just for the fun of it – a photo of me and my husband during the Singapore National Day holidays visiting the newly opened Cat museum 🙂
Just for the fun of it – a gif showing how the Vault dwellers wedding project was made 🙂
Today is the day when I can finally tell you, that I did it! The Fallout wedding project is finished, framed and ready to go to it’s new owners. And right now I have some very mixed feelings about it.
But first things first, here’s a photo:
As you probably remember, I stitched this for my half-sister, who’s wedding is coming up this Saturday. It is a custom project, I made the pattern, chose the canvas, stitched it and was oh-so-very proud of myself. But then I had to get it framed, and as it is a present, moreover – a wedding present – I decided that I would not do it myself and would rather pay professionals to do it properly.
I got my stitching back yesterday, and was even more happy right until I unpacked it. The first photo was tweaked a bit, and here is the original. Can you see the problem here? Continue reading “One finish, one disappointment, and one wedding coming up”
My, that was a lucky week for Happy Stitch – two finishes in a couple of days. Another pattern from my collection came to life thanks to Kelsey, who turned out to be a fellow Fallout fan 🙂 And it looks amazing!
Thank you, Kelsey!

I am a slow stitcher, and to tell you the truth, I haven’t stitched most of the patterns I designed. That’s why it is always a pleasure to see how these virtual patterns become real projects in skilled hands. Today I want to share a picture of my Fish Pond pattern, stitched by Alyssa from Brownie’s Chair.

As for my own stitching, I had to stop working on Cats in the Kitchen (again!). It dawned at me that I should make something for my half-sister Katie’s wedding, so I made a pattern, bought all the supplies and have been stitching like crazy to make it on time.
It started out with a grid…

Ahhh yes, it’s so nice to make the last stitch in a project. Especially for a slow stitcher like myself. But yesterday I finally finished embroidering the Mayan Turtle for my new cushion!
The embroidery is made with woolen thread, and though there is a color guide in the original chart, I never used it, but just chose the colors that seemed most appropriate. More photos: Continue reading “Finally did it! The Mayan Turtle embroidery :)”
