“I love you” in binary code – finished stitching

I love you in binary code cross stitch project

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.

Home is where Mom is – a stitching by Alexandra

Home is where Mom is

Hi everybody,

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?

Home is where Mom is

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.

 

Another great rendition of the Vault Boy!

Amazing!

A finished SG-50 project!

SG50 stitched by Craftty Craken

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.

One finish, one disappointment, and one wedding coming up

Fallout vault dwellers finished project

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:
Fallout vault dwellers finished project

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?

Projects in progress and a wonderful finish by Alyssa

Fish Pond stitched by Alyssa http://brownieschair.blogspot.com/

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…

Finally did it! The Ethnic Turtle embroidery :)

The Mayan Turtle embroidery

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 Ethnic Turtle for my new cushion!

The Mayan Turtle embroidery

The embroidery is made with basic yarn, I chose the colors that were more or less close to the original DMC palette of the pattern.
