Oh, I've got another one in my future!  I sent a message to the designer asking if she was planning an original Star Trek and she already had one! It's in her Craftsy shop but not her Etsy shop, where I was looking. Yay!

Thanks everyone! He's going to send me a better close-up pic of the finished product too! I'll add it in when I get it.

So I was making this cross stitch for my boyfriend's birthday...in August. Even though I finished the cross stitch in time for his birthday, it took me until Christmas to finish the back and get it in the hoop frame. I actually found this oval frame in my stash and it was the perfect size! I think I had picked it up at the second hand store. This pattern is from Wee Little Stitches.

I really hope they make another one for the original Star Trek series!

He likes it and it is decorating his cubicle at work.

And some in progress pics:



Worked on it at the park a lot!

Thanks Mel!

That is super cool Zidisha! How does the quality feel of the fabric? I've ordered swatches a few times and the quality has seemed to vary pretty drastically.

Welcome lonelygamerwife! You've got plenty of time to finish that baby quilt, I'm sure some of us have still been sewing binding on while on the way to showers lol!

I need to add a scrap quilt to my list too, sooooo many scraps! How many scraps you ask? A 2 drawer rolling cart, plus a 7 drawer rolling cart, plus 7 shoe box size plastic containers (all of these are sorted by color), plus 2 giant stuffed bags that are not sorted. It's kind of scary. And yet I don't want to get rid of any of them!

Whoa, I personally don't have the nerve to quilt that big of a quilt on my home machine! Go you! Also, I think a spiral pattern is extra hard on the body since it's so active. That will be gorgeous when you're done...maybe treat yourself to a massage? Cheesy

Wow you are on a roll! Awesome! I finished some things at my guild Sew Day on the 1st but haven't gotten back into my sewing room since then. Tomorrow my goal is to get this basted~

That sounds like a good goal! I am on a tight deadline this week to baste and quilt my medallion quilt, but after that I think I will work on this since it is my oldest WIP (I think).
