I have so many things I want to stitch up. I have a ton of Wild Olive and Sublime Stitching patterns I've not done yet. I have a ton of other stuff as well that I've just found or people have passed down to me as well. And I've drawn up a couple of little things myself. I never know where to start, and I always get overwhelmed, so I decided to make a list. I have friends who have moved into new apartments, birthdays, and Christmas coming up, so I made a list of people I'm doing embroidery projects for, and I started on it Thursday.

I did this one from an Urban Threads pattern. Yes, I know, they are evil, but I got this stuff before I knew they were evil and I'm not about to pitch it! I made it for my friend who's just moved into a new place. I thinks it's adorable. We all love Cthulhu.

This is another for his roommate. Here, I tried my hand at coloring the fabric. I'm a terrible color-er. I have the tendency to color in one direction and then totally switch it up, and I have to learn that is a no-no. But I think it came out okay anyhow.

That's it for now!

  1. Ohhhhhhh, I wish I were as organized as you! I have tons and tons of patterns and projects I want to do, but I get overwhelmed and end up forgetting about them.

    I know whatcha mean about Urban Threads. I bought their Craft Ninja (?) pattern a long time ago, and now I want to do it, kinda, 'cause I hate wasting money!!

    I LOVE the Annie Oakleaves vampire!! I've never seen anyone else do this besides me. Did you use the crayon tinting tutorial from Pimp Stitch? It looks great. Super cute. :)

  2. I am always so flattered by your comments! Organization is part of my Capricorn nature. I actually used some Crayola map pencils because I don't have any crayons and I was not feeling like going out to get any last night. I think I'll still try the crayons, I'm sure they're smoother and easier to work with.

  3. I used to use my scrapbooking pencils before I bought a box of Crayolas. I actually had crayons up the wazoo because I have two kids, but they're the washable kind. Now I have a box of my own that they're not allowed to touch, lol. But the scrapbook pencils came in handy for a while. :)
