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.
