Busy! I know that has been my theme song this summer, but it’s so true! I do love it though. I don’t like being idle for long.
I thought I would take the time though to update you on not just the fairy this time. I’ve been hinting at other projects I’ve been working on. Smaller things that are more portable and quicker things that can be done in a sitting. So I am going to update on it all today.
First for you is the latest update on the fairy. She is coming along nicely, slowly, but surely lol. It’s usually at this point in a project like this that I start to get frustrated and am tempted to put it to the side. I am not letting myself do that, even if I only get a few stitches in here and there throughout the day, I am determined to get something done on it daily. So here she is…
Next thing I have been working on, is an amigarumi dragon for a friend’s grandson. He’s only a body so far, but I plan on trying to get the rest knocked out this week.
My more portable stitching project has been a stylized peacock pattern done in something called “bargello”. It’s actually fairly simple, and if it turns out like the picture, I will be happy with it. It will be the front pocket of a small bag, which I also love, because I just don’t think you can have too many bags lol.
Last but not least is something I made for myself. A cute little bracelet from a pattern I modified. I am happy with how it came out.
There now that I got the pictures to upload properly… ish… lol I will close this out.
Keep smiling, keep crafting, stay cool, stay hydrated and I’ll see you all next week! 😀
So, I missed an update last week… Things have been getting busier and busier as we get through summer. I’m busy, the kids are busy, my darling hubby is crazy busy at work. Plus trying to de clutter the house and heal from a minor procedure I had done.
With all this going on, obviously I haven’t had a ton of time to sit and stitch, or crochet much at all. But, I do have a progress update. I am making another amigarumi for a friend’s grandson. I will get pictures of that one as soon as I can.
Picture for this week, of the fairy…
Little more work on her face, as well as the wings and background.
Don’t forget to take a peek at my Etsy shop and eBay page, both links are in the about me, up at the top of the page. As I de clutter, more and more is being added.
Keep smiling, stay cool and happy crafting!
I hope everyone here in the U.S. had a safe and happy July Fourth. Other than the little dog not liking the fireworks nearby, things were great here. Cooked out with family, had a few sparklers and watched everybody nearby shooting off all kinds of pretty things.
Progress on the cross stitch was good this week, but was slightly delayed because I was “commissioned” to do a quick amigurumi crochet project for a friend. That friend is giving it as a gift, so I can’t post pictures yet until I know the gift has been received. It has inspired me though to try my hand at it again and pull out the steel hooks and old embroidery floss to see what some minis would look like too. As for the fairy, what work I did get done was mostly in the wings. So. Many. Colors. Lol. At least now you can see the top wing’s shape and slowly starting to see the background taking shape.
So, here is your picture for this week…
Keep smiling, keep crafting, stay cool out there! Don’t forget, my etsy shop link is in the “about” section above and you never know what I might be listing next!
