Happy 2016!

It has been a very long time since I last posted on my blog. Not really sure why, but having issues with apps on my iPad didn't help. Also, Instagram just seems easier lately, so I tend to post there more then anywhere (bbrown426 if you want to follow me)
I am going to try and get back to posting one a week again... Let's see how it goes :)

I will update you on what I have worked on for the last quarter of 2015 later. Now on to this year.

On January 1st I started Spring Quakers from Rosewood Manor.
This was a SAL with Dani and Christin.

Dani and I both managed to finish this yesturday!! I used the Valdani threads (which were lovely) and stitched it on 32ct Queen Anne's Lace.

I absolutely loved this one, and can't wait to start the other 3!

Today I am going to attempt a rotation. University has cut into my stitching time, so I'm thinking that one project a week will still let me see progress :)
First up is Little Alien Schoolgirl from Ink Circles. I'm doing this one with the called for Weeks threads and I'm sticking it on Stephs 32ct toasted almond Lugana.
Here is my starting pic for the week

The Witches Wheel - DONE

I stopped at my LNS (Knowledge and Needles) this weekend and picked up some petite beads to go on my Witches Wheel.
I have beaded away the weekend and just had a happy dance!

And then there was 7

It's been over a month since I posted last... Again
I was having issues with the app I use on my iPad. But in the past few weeks, I honestly forgot or didn't feel like it. I seem to be posting to Instagram (@bbrown426) more then anything.
Hopefully I can start to keep up!

I am not going to show comparatives, but just update on my 7 current WIP's (in no particular order)

Autumn Leaves (Cross Stitch Collection) - currently on page 11 of 25

Bees Knees from Ink Circles

Santa's Village from Country Cottage Needleworks - 4/12 houses done

Fortunate Traveller from Teresa Wentzler

Witches Wheel from Glendon Place - just need to do the beads. I have decided to pull these ones out and switch to petites.

Twelve days of Christmas whimzies from Just Nan - really need to get back to these!

A Good Marriage from Lizzie Kate - started in August to celebrate my 10th... As you can see I didn't get far on it.

This one isn't included on the 7 since it's a small. This is bluebird tweet from Just Nan. I have purchased all of the little critters, and really need to get working on them!

A forest dance

Can't see the forest for the trees

I finished page 10 on my Autumn Leaves

For a bit of a break I pulled out Foresta Magica
Last night I finished the 2nd tree except the kreinik... I'm waiting to do that

Leaves keep changing

I can't seem to put down Autumn Leaves lately. When I try to give some love to other projects I seem to loose focus easily.

Here is a pic I showed from the last post - progress on June 8th

And here is where I am as of tonight

Hope you all have a great week

What I've been up to


I missed posting in May, so here is May and June.






Autumn Leaves

I was obsessed with this project in May

This is where I started

And here I got by June 8th


Witches Wheel

Since I have a ton of WIP's, I decided to add another one too it!

On May 8th I started and finished the stitching on May 24th

I still need to do the beads, which take this pattern to a totally different level



I have finished 2 more of the Lizzie Kate Jingles patterns


Well that is enough for now

Hope you are all well!
