1  Cross stitch clock in Needlework: Completed Projects by kittykill on: January 25, 2015 03:23:11 PM
There are three in the series of clocks. This is the first one. I just love them! I used perforated paper so I could cut out the clock. I am not sure how I am going to mount them once they are done.

Gah! I have been sucky about posting pictures. Here is what MommyTheMaid did for me.

She made me beaded spiders and sent some great vintage Halloween napkins.

I had the spiders on my Pinterest. Thank you so much for picking me and making me cute little spiders!

4  Let Them Eat Cake! in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by kittykill on: January 08, 2015 08:28:33 AM
I love this pattern and finally got a chance to stitch it up over the holidays. I am going to find a fancy frame for her and maybe include the quote:

Always remember the crowd that applauds your coronation is the same that crowd that will applaud your beheading. People like a show.

HA! I have had that same thought before.  Grin

This was my December hoop. Nothing too exciting. I didn't noticed the fabric pulled until I framed it. I'm a bit bummed by that but oh well, it's for me so I'm okay with it.

I wanted to finish this before the new year. Yahoo! Barely made it. I adjusted the pattern a bit but I like it a lot better this way.

8  Cross Stitched Sewing Box from Dutch Cookie Tin Tutorial (image heavy) in Completed Projects by kittykill on: December 14, 2014 06:12:08 PM

During the holiday season I go a little overboard with Dutch Christmas Cookies . It is the only time of the year I eat them. At the end of Christmas I am left with a bunch of empty tins, that for quite some time, have lived in my pantry, collecting dust. While I could just throw them out or give them to a thrift store, I thought this year I could make Cross Stitched Sewing Box for all my stitchy friends.

The supplies you need for this project are:

Cookie Tin
Spray Paint
Drill with small drill bit that you can get your yarn or floss through the hole
Washi Tape
Glue
Cardboard
Scissors
Yarn or floss
Pen
Image to cross stitch


Creating your pattern on your tin could be your first or second step, depending on what you feel comfortable with. I spray painted my tin first and then added my pattern. The only problem I came up with is that I needed to touch up the paint job after drilling the pattern. If you paint afterwards, you may fill in the holes with paint. At any rate, to add the pattern to top of the tin does require the use of a drill so remember your safety glasses. Tape your pattern onto the lid of the tin and then drill the SQUARES of the graph. Think of how you are going to stitch the cross and this will be a no brainer. Stitch all for corner of each stitch.


 As you can see from the picture, the holes create a box for your cross stitch.



 Once you have your holes drilled, your lid should look like this.


 I used an acrylic yarn to cross stitch the lid but you can use floss if you wish. Acrylic yarn will cause a slight fray, but I kind of like it because it gives the tin a sweater feel to it.


 Once the lid is done, you can work on the inside of the tin...the guts. Cut two pieces of heavy weight cardboard. One 7.50 inches and the other roughly 4. If your tin is bigger than the average cookie tin, measure your piece of cardboard before cutting.


I did a preplacement before gluing everything in place. Now that you have everything in place you can glue it in! I glued the two pieces of cardboard together first and then glued it to the bottom of the tin. I used a pen to place where the cardboard was going to sit. I used a glue gun but you can use gorilla glue or another kind of epoxy.


Fill in your sewing box! I filled my with floss, a pin cushion, pencil, paper, quilting wax, scissors and needleminders


 I was worried about snagging everything on the holes I drilled so I covered the back with washi tape and then added a magnet with a clip to hold my floss and pattern.

Every year for Christmas I get my husband something to do with the Big Lebowski. This year I stitched up these little guys. We say this quote whenever life gets stressful.
