It's been a while since this little goddess-in-training has posted about any sewing exploits. This is because I have been pretty busy in other aspects of life and have, unfortunately, not taken enough time to keep up with the stitching. That said, my fingers have not been totally restless, as I do have a few little snippets to share with you.
My hexie cushion (which I am making using one of Kandi Pandi's kits) is progressing...slowly. I have completed the sewing-the-hexies-together stage, but have not quite made it to the turning-it-into-a-cushion-cover stage just yet. This is a project that I have really enjoyed working on, as it has forced me to practice doing neat little stitches by hand. It was very satisfying seeing those stitches getting neater and neater as the rows built up.
I have also discovered a new love in recent times. This is a love that some of my non-goddess friends have smirked at, but is one that I will hold my head up high and admit to: I have fallen in love with cross stitch. I have to hold CrossStitcher magazine responsible for this one, tempting me in with a super cute cover gift a couple of months back and then holding my attention through page-after-page of inspiring, modern projects. And this is where it's got me:
And finally...remember that patchwork baby quilt I was commissioned to make a little while back? Well, the customer requested that I make a little label pointing out that this was indeed a special, handmade gift, so I used an alphabet page in the back of CrossStitcher and put this little one together. Cute, me thinks!
What stitching have you been doing lately?
