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.

You can read the full description on deviantART.

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

Hello stitchers!

This week was spent entirely on creating Princess Peach's beaded sleeves and finishing up that butterfly cross-stitch I'd been working on. All the sleeve progress can currently be seen on Facebook. As for the butterfly, it's being featured here for the two stitching events my friends signed me up for: D.E.S.I.G.N. and Tons of Tiny.

New Year 2015

Good afternoon crafty types,

Plenty has happened between now and my previous post, and the delay was a wonderful long-term visit from friends and family alike. Friday (the 9th) was when our last guest left and so I've been able to find the time to get back on the computer to post for you all.
