WIP Wednesday!

You know what day it is!

Inchies at The Daily Inchie

From my 29th to my 30th birthday, I’m creating a new needlework inchie every day. This week, my favorite has been my Vibrant Tapestry Sampler Inchie:

Vibrant Tapestry is my favorite colorway from this month’s crop of new threads (and yes, this whole thing was stitched with one colorway!), but the other reason I love this one is that I was actually able to capture some of the shine of the thread in the photo, which is something I always struggle with.

More progress on my Sheep Mandala – Sheep #1 has a friend!

Extreme center section close-up (cuz, really, why not? 🙂 ):

If you would like to stitch up your own Sheep Mandala using my conversion, leave a comment below or email me at and I’ll send it right over to you!

What have you been working on this week? Leave a comment below and point us to your blog, flickr, tumblr post, or anywhere else you are showing off your latest creations. Can’t wait to see them!!

Happy Stitching!

Epic A Embroidery

In addition to my daily needlework inchies over at The Daily Inchie, I’m also working on several projects to take to an Open House this fall. One is working my way through the Epic Alphabet set from Sublime Stitching. Tonight I finished stitching A!

If you look at the upper right corner, you’ll notice a section that I mis-copied when I traced the pattern out, but since I used my awesome new FriXion pen, it disappear once I unmount it and hit it with a blow dryer. (If you haven’t heard of these pens, check out my post from earlier this week.) I’ll post an update once I finish this baby up – I’m thinking I’ll canvas-frame them, but a few days ago I was set on making them ornaments, so only time will tell.

There’s still time to help me decide which projects to work on for the open house – head over to my Facebook page and vote in the poll!

Happy Stitching!
