Black Hat Societry is done!

On Friday I had my third cross stitch finish of the year! I finally finished Black Hat Society by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.

I started this piece last year but, as always, I got distracted with other projects so it took me a little over a year to finish it :P

I have an idea of how I want to finish it but that will have to wait until next week because I have a few crochet pieces I need to finish before Monday.

Design: Black Hat Society by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery
Stitch count 129w x 106h
Fabric: 28ct Echo Cashel Linen (Pïcture This Plus)
Threads: DMC
Started: 17. September. 2017
Finished: 21. September. 2018

Punch of Color ~ Day 80

Yesterday I reached day 80 for the 100 days of HAED challenge.
This is how it looks so far...



Like I said before, I'm only doing the black outline for this challenge and so far I've completed all the black for the first 8 pages (6,301 stitches)

I want this done in time for Halloween 2018!


Yesterday I worked on Black Hat Society for about half an hour and I managed to finish the little pumpkin. The only thing left to do is a witch...

Oops! I dissappeared again!

I've been super busy lately and blogging completely slipped my mind :P

I'm still working on Punch of Color Girls 10 for the 100 days of HAED challenge. There have been several days where I only added one stitch to this projects but so far I've not misses a single day stitching on it...which is great!

Here is my progress after 70 days...

Day 40 and a Baby Whale

Last Saturday was day 40 of the 100 days of HAED challenge. This time around I didn't have much time for cross stitching so I had very little progress. 

Most days I only added 1 stitch just to be able to stay in the challenge.

What kept me occupied most of last week was a baby whale I had to finish for a nursery. 

The mother, an old friend of my sister from university, commissioned me to make a humpback whale for her baby's ocean themed nursery. 


 Pattern:  Baby Humpback Whale by One Woof Dog
Yarn: 100% Cotton
Hook: 4mm (G)
Started: 05. August. 2018
Finished: 10. August. 2018



I love this whale and I think is the perfect size for cuddles. Here is a pic of my 7-year-old holding it. 




I'm still working on the small amigurumi I'm doing for my daughter's classmates. I'm a little behind with my plans, hopefully, I can catch up this weekend.

Projects I need to finish this month!

Halloween is fast approaching so need to finish Black Hat Society soon so I can display it this year in my home. I started this piece last year in September and I'm still working on it!

As you can see I don't have much left to do so I think I can finish it sometime this month.




💗💗💗💗💗💗💗


By the end of the month, I'll be visiting my daughter's classroom to talk about her and show pictures and videos of when she was a baby up until now. 

Parents usually take small gifts for each child when they visit; so Maria Fernanda asked me if I could make amigurumi because she always tells them that I make stuffed toys for her. So now I need to finish 29 small amigurumi for my visit on August 29th. 

For the boys, I chose to make mini sharks and for the girls, kawaii watermelon slices. So far I've done 3 sharks of 15 I need to make, and 1 watermelon of 14. I need to get busy with these or I won't finish them on time!!!

A doll called Maria and progress on the challenge

A couple weeks ago I was asked to do a doll with olive skin and I came up with this cutie

I've called her Maria, like my daughter. She kind of reminds me of Moana so I made her a dress with colors that remind me of the ocean :)

Yarn: 100% Cotton
Hook: 4mm (G)
Started: 20. July. 2018
Finished: 23. July. 2018

Yesterday was day 30 for the 100 days of HAED challenge. I'm very pleased that I'm keeping up with the challenge, some days I just added 1 stitch to the piece but 1 stitch is still progress, right?

In the last 10 days I added 1,198 stitches to the piece and most of those stitches were done on Sunday.
