Black Hat Society 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.
