1  The Future is Glow-In-The-Dark in Needlework: Completed Projects by Finney on: April 22, 2019 12:10:11 PM
My entry for this month's stitch-a-long A Space In Time. I chose the future, hence the question mark. It was my first time working with glow in the dark thread, which is kind of annoying to work with. Very prone to tangling. It was a fun, quick project though!

Here's April for you! My moment is the future (oooooo) and it's a question mark. A bit on the nose, sure, but at this point in my life, the future is truly a question mark. I wanted the QM to blend into the
white fabric so that when you saw it glow, it was a bit of a surprise. I also chose some bold colors for funsies.

Just in the nick of time! I spent most of the month working on a cross stitch project for my dad, and I just got this done about 10 minutes ago.

It's completely about my craft! I tried some new stitches on this sampler, and I made the cutest woven spiderwebs (my favorites of the whole thing). My least favorite was the bullion stitches... I really need to practice those more!

I'm exhausted from this month and glad to have made it in time.

Also, I love seeing everyone's take on the themes! You're all so talented.

4  Favorite Places in Needlework: Completed Projects by Finney on: February 20, 2019 08:41:10 PM
My entry for the Feb stitch-a-long: 3 of my favorite places to go with my best friend (the husband) and our boys. It's a popular style of stitching these days that I'm just experimenting with. The larger hoop is 4" and the two smaller are 3". If you try this, I'd recommend going with the smaller hoop, unless you take smaller stitches.

I love seeing everyone's interpretation of these themes! Here's mine: it's a series of favorite spots to go with my favorite peeps- the hubs and my two boys. A beach, a sledding hill (which is also a beach) and our backyard at sunrise.

6  Mini Backpack & Water Bottle in Needlework: Completed Projects by Finney on: January 31, 2019 02:24:33 PM
Hi all! This was my entry for the Jan stitch-a-long. It's a sort of needle painting, I guess, though the subject is non-traditional. The detail work was challenging, but it's always fun to practice my satin stitching.



And some detail:

When I saw the subject for this month, I blanked! I was so sure that I didn't have anything that I started asking people if they had any good luck charms or talismans, or just things they always had with them. My husband pointed out that I do have two things I never leave home without- my water bottle and my embroidery backpack (filled with WIPs and supples). So, that's what I chose. My Jansport mini and my Bubba- my talismans. Excellent for awkward or boring situations, and a good conversation starter.

Here's my September entry- I call it Island Lavender. Backstory: I live on a tiny island in Wisconsin, which is basically the last place you'd think of having a lavender farm. And we have 2! Driving past them when they're blooming, you get hit with the scent- sometimes strong, sometimes faint. Just blowing through the air. This is my interpretation of that.

10  Attempt at Tennis Racket Embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by Finney on: August 12, 2018 06:40:43 PM
So, this is my entry for this month's challenge... it was a challenge indeed! I'm not completely crazy about it, but it was an interesting process to think through. Check out the work of Danielle Clough for much, much better examples!
