Mockingjay Pin

Mockingjay pin

This is the Mockingjay pin (Hunger Games) from Happy Cupcake Creations. It is for my nephew; I was looking for something else entirely, and he saw this and liked it. It took much longer than I thought it would (a couple of weeks instead of a few days), but it’s finally finished. It’s on 14 count plastic canvas.

February 2015 WIPs

I started two projects and worked on two WIPs this month. I worked a little on Alphonse Mucha’s Moon from Art of Stitching:

January 2015 WIPs

I think the only WIP I touched this month was Alphonse Mucha’s Moon from miniature set 11 from Art of Stitching. I did finish the first page and the first row of 10×10 squares on the second and third pages. I went ahead and did page three because it’s only ten stitches wide and three of those are overlap from page two:

Yellow Flowers

Charles Voysey flowers

This is from Cross Stitch Art Nouveau by Barbara Hammet; it is a motif inspired by Charles Annesley Voysey. There was a picture of this along with the chart; I did not notice until it was too late that the picture and the chart were different in the area between the flowers that touch at the top. I’m not sure whether the pictured version looks better, though.

2014 WIPs

I worked on eight larger projects this year: five cross-stitch, one needlepoint, one latch hook, one blackwork.


2014 Finishes

I completed thirteen projects this year (all cross-stitch): two ornaments, four cards, six bookmarks, and one random thing (started by my nephew).


December 2014 WIPs

Mostly I worked on Alphonse Mucha’s Moon from miniature set 11 from Art of Stitching; I was hoping to get the first page completed but didn’t quite make it. It is more than a page’s worth of stitches, though:
