1  Re: Stitch Along 2013-until the END OF TIME in Needlework: Stitchalongs by Finney on: September 30, 2019 08:11:47 PM
Just in the nick of time! I call this piece "Current Comfort". Having a rough time in life lately, and having the tv on in the background while I work or embroider or whatever is a calming presence. It's my first attempt at these lovely wreaths that are so popular... it's okay. A little skimpy perhaps, but I'm glad I finished it.

Joining in with the rest of you f*ckers.  Grin My all white attempt, only truly visible in the dark.

L is for Leo! My initial and zodiac sign. Smiley A fun project to get more familiar with metallic thread and patterned couching. It's about 5" x 7".

Summer celebrations!

Summer is crazy, my work, the husband's work, soccer, and 3 out of 4 family birthdays. Typically, any embroidery projects taken on need to be simple and quick. Here they are, birthday party favors, for my son's birthday. I made perler bead bases and then cross stitched the letters. Then I added a felt back and a pin. Donesies!

5  The Laborinth in Needlework: Completed Projects by Finney on: June 02, 2019 01:51:56 PM
So, Pam England has a book called "Laborinth of Birth" which is about creating a map of what you'd like childbirth and labor to be. It even stretches into the child's first year. You create it and use it to meditate over the birth and growth process. After a less than ideal first birth situation, with my second I was really anxious to find something that could help keep me centered and calm. So, I created a laborinth the best way I knew how- embroidery! I started with the maze and then added the other elements- the brambles around the outside were doodles my oldest son did and my husband drew some of the things as well (I wanted the whole family included)

I poured a lot of hopes and dreams into this and whether it helped or not, my second birth experience was much smoother.

Not to toot my own horn, but I really don't have a favorite pattern designer besides myself. I love the patterns that I see people following, but I prefer to draw something up or use a picture I've taken or whatever.

This project was a fun one! It's called a Laborinth- the journey through pregnancy, birth and your child's first year. Only a little behind on it as my youngest is nearing 4, but close enough. There's so much symbolism an meaning (to me) in this piece. I'm thinking of turning it into a pillow possibly.

7  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.

10  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.
