Hannah-Alexander's Mucha Princesses and the Front Page Feature

Good afternoon marshmallows,

This week has lasted much longer than any other this year. It has been busy, stressful, full of excitement, sad, and overjoyed. This post will cover from Easter (the 5th) to now which covers more ground than I could've thought possible so let's get started with the largest event and move down the list: The Disney Mucha Girls designed by Hannah-Alexander that I was converting into cross-stitch patterns are finished!


You can view a larger image and learn more [here].
You can PreOrder them through [here] or [here] but please do not comment on this blog post to make your order because Blogger hates me and won't let me reply to comments. You could also message me via [etsy] directly. They're $20 each or $55 for a set of all three.

D.E.S.I.G.N. and Tons of Tiny Events - March

Hello my ever-busy stitchers,

This month has been a bit of a flurry for me with hardly a moment of real rest. I applied for a real job-job (my very first) at the beginning of the month, was called back the second week, worked the third week, and by the following Wednesday they told me that they were looking for someone more experienced. "That's funny," I thought with a very sour face, "three weeks ago they didn't seem to mind that they'd have to train me!" That particular event ate up a lot of my time this month as did a rather harsh bout of illness. I'm nearly healthy now with just a pointless cough.

Between all that I did manage to get some artwork done which is good, so let's get to it.

D.E.S.I.G.N. and Tons of Tiny

Hello hello,

Since the last update I've been working on the Mucha patterns, monochrome Eumelia, sorting through my DMC thread (just missing a handful of colors now), the piece I'm about to display for you now, and various other projects about the house. March should prove to be the end for each of these projects and the beginning of another set. Mom has also bought up a couple bunches of pendants for me to use as focal pieces in jewelry creation.

February - WIP on Mucha Girls

Hello my ever-so-patient artsy friends,

February has seemed like a slow month for me when I look at the Facebook posts but it's just because there's not a lot of progress to show that'll look very interesting. I felt the same way when I was first posting my beaded dress progress photos - I thought, "nobody is going to understand what's going on here, it's only interesting to me!" but look! You guys love seeing the progress and so I've continued posting them, now even I feel proud of my WIP shots.

Since working on patterns so in-depth is a new thing for me I'm feeling that again. I'm saying, "nobody is going to want to see all these funny symbols and lines of a WIP pattern" especially when it doesn't reflect what the final stitching is going to look like! And along the same thoughts I can't share it too entirely because these are patterns after all and are going to be sold.

Princess Peach - Finished and Loved

Hello Nintendo fans,

It's true! Finally, after months of planning and work, my Princess Peach pattern (based on her Super Smash Brothers design) has come to a successful end. The lovely GraniteFire designed me a watermark that I've used for the first time on Peach's photos.
