Pretty Pocket Winder Progress



My goal was to have this finished by the end of the weekend but I don't see that happening, but I have finished most of the stitching. I need to add the beads, there's only a few, and do the back stitching around each of the panels, then I can cut it out and finish it up. I'm hoping that aspect won't take too long!

The Next MiraRR

I've been pondering the next MiraRR since I feel like there's all this pressure on me to do it!!! I'm kidding y'all. I'm thinking the Big Ass Pixie Project wouldn't be appropriate because it would be too big to send around and secondly, I wouldn't have it ready to send assuming we're going to start this thing in like the next year or so. Soooo...I've been hatching a little idea of doing the 12 Days of Christmas. However, I'm not sure how to arrange them. They aren't all exactly the same size. They're a little bit bigger than the usual RR size, but they have a lot of blank space. Decisions, Decisions....

Hey...Yesterday was my 5 Year Blogaversary

5 Years...that deserves something eh? Let me think on it and put something together.

JBW Welcome



I finished this little kit from JBW. I've got some Mirabilia burn out right now. Instead of picking up any of my (bajillion) Mirabilia WIP I'm trying to do some little projects to gain a sense of accomplishment.

Along those lines is my start on Just Nan's Pretty Pocket Winder

Keep A Secret


I finished up this little Just Nan thingy. I made a color mistake at the end of the branches, but who cares? I wasn't gonna frog over one and who says there aren't trees with leaves that color?? I left off the ABC thing...that just didn't match in my opinion.


I also make this little scissor fob. There's something going on with the warp and weft of the fabric because it's not exactly even. I counted my backstitches repeatedly and they all lined up right so I think it has to do with the fabric and not with my backstitches. Regardless, I shall rejoice in the imperfections :) The pattern is Deux Fleurs I think from Doop Designs
