Moving Toward the Front

I am filling in the neck area back to front now. It's going to be finished soon and I will be soooo glad.


First Story

Now that the words are done, I'm starting the hovel. It's got a roof.

24 for 2024 #14: Holiday Labyrinth Ornament by Carolyn Manning

A little freebie ornament to start because I need some small pieces.


24 for 2024 #10: Henna Mandala by Ink Circles

This will be another bright India-inspired mandala from Ink Circles when it's done. Complete color changes, as usual. 


Totally for Andreas

I have this framed for Andreas to put up somewhere. It's sitting there waiting for him to decide where. I think I did an okay job of framing it.

Heart Framed

Andreas didn't straighten the heart charm before taking the photo, but it's framed now. I am getting lots of these things done and out into the world.



Doing the underarm area and the mouth at this point. I feel it's slow going, but not as slow as the horizontal frog.


24 for 2024 #20: Fragrant and Fluffy by Luca-S

This is going to be a bit of a beehive when it's done. It's medium sized, so shouldn't take too very long.

24 for 2024 #7: Dream Garden by Just Nan

This is another larger piece that has been in my stash for quite a while. Hopefully it gets farther than this soon.


24 for 2024 #8: Crescent Pincushion by Hillside Samplings

This is going to be a honking huge pincushion if I stay with the name. It really should be called a small handbag.

24 for 2024 #17: Bliss by Just Nan

I am trying to clear out some old charts and make them, so this was started this time. It's been in my stash for a loooong time. It will be a bit of a stitch because it's fairly big.


My Little Well

Is done in some funky colored stone this time.


24 for 2024 #23: A Total Waste of Make Up by Lizzie Kate

This should also be a fairly quick stitch, and a bright one.

24 for 2024 #12: Annie's Garden by Carriage House Samplings

This is a fairly big piece, though not a whole lot of coverage. Will wait to see when I pull it out. Other pieces are definitely ahead.


24 for 2024 #15: You Can Touch the Dust by Lizzie Kate

This should be a fairly quick stitch, so I will probably pick it back up soon.


24 for 2024#2: White Pumpkins by Mill Hill

Another start with more cross stitch than beading. This is almost full coverage, so it will be slow going.

Added Some Crenellations

I added some crenellations on the right as I worked my way across the top outer edge.


24 for 2024 #21: Tanglewood by Ink Circles

Starting out this big piece with some swirls.


Making the Boiler

Time to get the boiler pressurized now. It's so dense and coming along. I am going to rip out the french knots and put beads in their place, I think.

A Little Bud

There's a little bud on the stem now, and I am working my way down.
