Oh Christmas Tree Cross Stitch

Ta da, it’s done! I started working on this Oh Christmas Tree pattern by All Through the Night in September, with low expectations for finishing it this year, but it stitched up faster than I thought! I loved all the tiny details and using just one thread color (Spinach by Classic Colorworks) simplified the process.… Continue reading Oh Christmas Tree Cross Stitch

Oh Whale Cross Stitch

A finish! It feels like I’ve been working on this one for ages, but it’s only been a few months; although to be fair, I grew and birthed a human in between starting and finishing, so it’s been a busy few months.

Merry and Bright Cross Stitch Cube Finish

I clearly remember finishing this Merry and Bright cross stitch pattern one cold January afternoon in the haze of life with a newborn while Amelia napped for a rare four-hour stretch. I never knew if I’d have a couple minutes or a couple hours, but any time to myself was a luxury. Almost a year… Continue reading Merry and Bright Cross Stitch Cube Finish
