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.
What is your next big project after Christmas? Here is a small freebie to stitch for the next big day – the Valentine’s day!
Simple heart with a floral motif
This little design can also be used for hama/perler beads 🙂
As I’ve decided not to start big projects until next year (this resolution does not stop me from bying more and more stuff for my stash though), the last weeks of 2015 will be marked with several small finishes.
Today it’s the Kawaii Vault dweller – nice, small, and very S.P.E.C.I.A.L
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?

Gradually moving forward with the runic alphabet. With today’s Eihwaz done, I have only three runes to go: Sowilo, Ingwaz, and Dagaz. That means that all other runes are alreasy available for download in the blog archives!
Anyway, the freebie today is Eihwaz.

Hello dear readers, and sorry for being away for several days. September began swiftly and brought lots of different projects into my life, including a stitchy square for Stitching out Stigma, an ornament for Christmas ornament exchange, a job offer, and an unexpected journey (yup, I feel almost like a Hobbit. Legs, too :)). On top of that me and my husband are trying to sell the current apartament and buy a new one. But I am still here, and so are the usual freebies. If there are any GTA fans out there, they will definitely like it!
Wasted (GTA inspired) mini cross stitch pattern
A simple mini project, that can be stitched in a night with only three colors (two, if you skip the background). And what a powerful message! 🙂 Any GTA video game fan knows that line.

Enjoy your stitching!
OK, the project is not finished yet, because the idea is to make a postcard. But the stitching is complete, and looks like this:
Right now I understand that I should have placed something on the photos for size reference. The actual stitching is very small, about 9 cm in height (3.5 ”) and 8 in length (3.2 ”).
For my next step I have to find a postcard blank and mount the stitching in. Hopefully the result will be as pretty as I imagine it 🙂
