WIP Wednesday: Treasure Dragon II

I’m still plugging along on this pattern.  My fiance and I have been busy recently with some first-time-buying-a-house stuff, so I haven’t had as much time to sit and stitch, but I’ve made some progress. It’s really fun stitching a huge block of one color and seeing the rest of the pattern appear out of… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Treasure Dragon II

WIP Wednesday: Treasure Dragon

After finishing the little Moon & Back stitch over the weekend, my need for needles and thread has come front and center again.  An artist I follow on Twitter, Lee (@StoneDragonWS) has recently opened an Etsy store and I love his patterns!  His pixel art translates flawlessly into cross stitch.  I bought all the designs… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Treasure Dragon

I am a cross stitcher.  I picked up… Continue reading My First Cross Stitch Pattern

WIP Wednesday: Haiti Quote Custom Stitch

I took the supplies for this stitch with me on my recent cruise vacation with the intention of sitting by the pool and/or beach and working on it, but that never really happened.  I mean, how can I justify stitching when this was my view? I did get started on it upon my return home,… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: Haiti Quote Custom Stitch
