Goku on Cloud

Goku on Cloud

This is Goku (Dragon Ball) on a cloud; it’s for a card for my nephew for his birthday. He’s been really into Dragon Ball recently. I’m not sure where I found the pattern; I’ve had it for a few years (the date on the file was March 2012). The pattern says it was designed by DawnMLC, but there’s no site listed. There’s a DawnMLC on DeviantArt with some anime cross-stitch patterns, but this one’s not there.

July 2015 WIPs

I was distracted by bookmarks last month, but I did work some on the peacock for my sister from Just Cross Stitch April 2015. I can kind of see the end; I have one of the lower corners done and have stitches close to the other one, but the bottom is solid stitching:

Minecraft Creeper

Minecraft Creeper

This is a Minecraft creeper from Happy Cupcake Creations. It’s for my nephew, who’s very into Minecraft. It’s on the small end of bookmark-sized, but he can use it for whatever he wants. Last time I went to Michael’s, they had sheets of 14 count plastic canvas on clearance for $0.29 (white and clear); I picked some up and used a little of the white for this.

Spring Bookmark

Spring Bookmark

This is a Spring bookmark by Lesley Teare. it’s a freebie from cross-stitching.com; you do have to register there to be able to download patterns. It’s on a bookmark form from Joann that I bought mostly because I liked the chart that came with it, but the design didn’t fit on the form. I chose to make this because I was getting burned out on the peacock that I’ve been working on and wanted something I could finish fairly quickly; also, I keep losing bookmarks.

June 2015 WIPs

I continued working on the peacock from Just Cross Stitch April 2015; I’m starting to see the end. I ought to get it finished by late October:

May 2015 WIPs

Mostly, I worked on the peacock from Just Cross Stitch April 2015. Looking at the picture, I feel like I can see the end; looking at the pattern, there’s still a long way to go. The branch on the right is about ten stitches above the bottom, but the tail fills in the width of the piece. I still should finish it by late October, unless I get severely distracted.

April 2015 WIPs

The only thing I worked on this month was the peacock from the April 2015 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine. It’s for my sister; hopefully I’ll finish it in time for her birthday in October. I think I’m approaching finishing the top half, but the lower half has considerably more stitching in it.

March 2015 WIPs

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:
