Mira March SAL Update #4

Sooo.... I love Stargazer. But I needed a break. She was getting heavy and hurting my wrist, so I decided to start a new Mirabilia for Mira March. You might have seen the new Mirabilia that was released in February. Her name is Andromeda. I find her a bit...meh. She's nice, but not really my thing. That is, until it was pointed out to me that she would make an amazing Ariel. YES PLEASE. So, I've started my first Mira conversion. So. Scary. But I'm really enjoying it.

I made up this digital conversion and it hooked me. So I picked up the fabric and pattern a week or so ago and started her on March 25th. The fabric is Sunny Dyes "Surf & Sky".

Here's my progress so far. She's rather small, much smaller than Stargazer. She's only like 8x11 inches finished and fits on a Fat 1/8. I'm hoping to finish her next month. Wish me luck. ^_^

Progress for the Mira March SAL

Hello my sweet stitching sisters, I hope this evening finds everyone well. My post have been few and far between but I am going to try and be more consistent in the future. First up -Starting point last night ( 3-23-2017)and progress since then...... Starting point |

Progress as of  tonight... I'll stitch a little more on this before calling it a night. Working the weekend so I am hoping to stitch some in the evenings..
Working blocks of one color does help the stitching to go a little faster plus the fabric is a dream to stitch on.. Next up is a small finish.. Daffy Cat's Reindeer # 6 of 9. Star Reindeer. So cute and so proud looking , I am loving these, they are easy to stitch!

Until next time... Happy Stitching, may Mr. Frog stay away and you have smokin' needles!

Mira March SAL Update #3

Excuse the bad photo, but she's off the Q-Snaps, so I thought I'd post an update. Her skirt is coming along nicely. I was hoping to get her cross stitching done this month, but I'm not sure it's gonna happen. We have some big home renovations starting this weekend, so I'm not sure how much stitching I'll get in.  But I'll get very close to the end, that's for sure. I think I'll be able to completely finish her (including the beading) next month.

Mira March SAL Update #2

I finished the top half of Stargazer! Of course, most of the pattern is the bottom half.... That dress goes on for ages. But I'm loving her so far!

My Mirablilia start and another row finished

Hello fellow SALers!

I made a start on Deepest Love by Mirabilia.  I enjoyed working on it so much I am having a hard time not just stitching on it everyday.

Yesterday I finished off the 8th row on ABC's Of Parenting.  Only 3 more to go!

Hope you are all well!

Happy Stitching!

New start for the Mira March SAL 2017

Hello! I hope this finds everyone well. I have a new start! One that I have been looking forward to for a while now. I'm excited to be stitching my first Miribilia. This is Deepest Love. I'm stitching it on 28 count Wichelt linen hand dyed " Twilight Mist".

New Start! 

I am looking forward to stitching with everyone in our SAL
more info on the SAL here

Happy Stitching and may you have smokin' needles!

My Mira March Starting Point

Here is my start for Mira March.
I will be working on Mirabilia's Stargazer. I started this on September 21st on 2016. The fabric is PolStitches' Moon.
My goal is to finish all the cross stitching in this project in March. I don't imagine I'll finish the beading this month, but I really want to finish it completely in the next two months.

(Oh, and ignore the pins in a line in the middle of the fabric. I had a concern about whether she was gonna fit on the fabric, so I counted to the edge. She fits. ^_^)

Mira March has arrived!

MiraMarch is here lovelies!!! I cannot wait to see all the beauty that's ahead!! 💗

Finally Home!! ;)

Hello lovelies!!

Well, it has been a long time coming but I have FINALLY finished stitching Lizzie Kate's At Our House. I thoroughly enjoyed this piece and I think maybe the reason it took me so very long was because it was a piece I was sad to see end. Am I making any sense?  Possibly not with this crazy cold I have lol.

I am looking forward to getting a few more WIPs out of the way over the course of the next few months. Especially those that may be slightly past due on when they should have been done. Alas, a gift is a gift regardless of the day!

Now, because I already have so many WIPs on the go I will add in one more!! Lol Here's to MiraMarch and my wonderful Stitchy friends!!

Have a great Stitchy Day!! XO

A finish and a update

Finally downloaded a new browser and lo' and behold I am able to post. So without further ado I'll show my finish first then an update on Stardust Fairy.

Finished! Michaela Learner's 12 Days of Christmas Two Turtle Doves, This one was an  fast, easy stitch just had to sit down and stitch it.

And finally an update on Stardust Fairy, I've done more than this I just need to take a picture.
Meanwhile I am looking forward  as always to everyone's updates on what they are stitching.

Happy Stitching and may Mr. Frog stay away xxx East Coast Stitcher

February Ornament - Iced Mocha Snowman

   I've finished stitching the Iced Mocha Snowman ornament. It's the last of my Hot Cocoa Snowmen Ornament Set created by Joan Elliot.
   This set was fun to stitch. Fully finishing will need to wait till we get caught up on bills. So this group will be put into my finishing box with some other projects that still need a little something.
   May frogs stay far away. Hugs and XXX's!

Another finish and 7th row finished!

Hello friends!

I finished another of the Brooke's Books Advent Animals, Cassie Cow is all ready with Santa's milk and cookies.

I also finally finished the 7th row on ABC's of Parenting by Lizzie Kate.  I don't know what took this row so long but I didn't think I was ever going to get it finished!

I hope you all are getting lots of stitchy time!

Progress on All Is Calm

   It seems that I have taken on more than I thought that I might. I've even managed to get around my husbands frown of working on different projects. I'm learning to plan my time better.
   I'm actually stitching 3 ornaments. Which have my first two weeks devoted strictly to them. I have a Sunday Church project that is coming along well.
   After I finish those first 2 ornaments I will stitch the 3rd while my husband is at work in February. Sunday evenings, and once he is home will be devoted strictly to my big project.
   In March I'll change things up a little.
   It's the end of the month,  and in some ways I feel like I haven't stitched much on All Is Calm. But then I realized that I only stitched on it for one week. My migraine took up the first week that I had intended to stitch. I've noticed that pictures do seem to help me see how much I've actually accomplished.
   I often find myself taking a picture at 1 am before heading to bed. I've claimed the only light in the room to stitch by, so I'm afraid they are a bit dark, and with a blue tinge thanks to the light on my phone. Here are my Before and After pictures.

My first finish for the SAL...

I am happy to say that I have finished January from Rainbow Gallery's 2004 Stitcher's Surprise Series.

I used an unknown Blue fabbie and mixed up all of the floss choices. I may still, if I can find suitable ones, add small black buttons for his eyes.

So, in a day or two it will be onto February for me.

hugs, Kaye

A little bit of progress and a finish

Hi everyone!

A snow day slowed down my progress on ABC's of Parenting this week, didn't even manage a whole word!  I was too busy making the boys something to eat every 20 minutes and refereeing to get much stitching done.   

This is my first entry into the Year Long SAL.  I stitched the first 12 last year and chose to keep going with my Brooke's Books Advent Animals to keep going with them this year for this SAL.  Only 12 left now!
