Oops

I forgot I was supposed to update my blog at least once a week :P

In this past two months I've not made a lot of progress on my cross stitch pieces. But I did finish a few amigurumi. One of those is this cute bear angel I made for my youngest nephew, Gael. 

Yarn: 100% Cotton
Hook: 2.5mm  
Started: 28. May. 2018
Finished: 01. June. 2018 

He was baptized at the beginning of June and this was my gift for him. I  made the little bear with a tuft of curl just like the one Gael has. I the way he came out!

Ice Princess ~ progress

Last night I finished my rotation on Ice Princess. 

There is a lot of confetti stitches in her hair so my progress is slower than usual. My goal is to finish her by the end of 2018 *finger crossed*

Crochet projects

Since my last update I've mainly worked on my crochet pieces. 
I finished my third security blanket of the year, this time it's  a unicorn. I made a star shape blanket in white and a pastel colors. This was fun to crochet and I really like the final result *Ü*

 Pattern:  Unicorn Lovey (My own design)
Yarn: 100% Acrylic
Hook: 4mm (G)
Started: 12. February. 2018
Finished: 18. March. 2018


My second finish is a super sweet Boston terrier puppy called Bentley. I purchased this pattern last year and I had it at the top of my Ravelry queue for months and I finally started it at the end of March. I absolutely LOVE him

WIPocalypse ~ March update

Since my last WIPocalypse update I've  only worked on 2 pieces. Stitching time is very limited right now so my progress is slow.

I'm keeping up to date with TFPS SAL: Into the Jungle (I'll be doing the top and bottom frames that were released on February at the end of the year) and I've completed another letter of Alphabet Learning (SO-G39) by Soda Stitch.


Progress as of January 28th

The question for this month is:

"What newer designers and product creators (fabric or floss dyeing, etc) out there have you discovered and recommend?"

I'm on a stash diet right now so I'm not actively searching for new designs or designers. But one that I discovered on Etsy this year is Fuzzy Fox Designs. The designs are very colorful and fun, and the instructions on the charts are clear and easy to follow. 

I used two of her cacti designs to make a birthday present, you can see my finish here.

After a short break...

I'm back! I take a few days off because I had some health issues so I didn't feel like crafting, but yesterday I picked up my needles and hooks and had two finishes! *yay*

First I finished the second block on Into the Jungle by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. Those toucans had a lot of color changes and I kept messing up but their done now :)



After finishing the toucans, I picked up my hooks and finished a baby lovey I had been working on before I got sick. She was almost done I just had to finish the hair and sew everything together. I think she turned out really cute °Ü°

Pattern:  Watermelon Doll Lovey by Yulia Mozhaiska
Yarn: 100% Cotton
Hook: 2.5mm(toy) - 3mm (blanket)
Started: 26. February. 2018
Finished: 11. March. 2018
