Weekly Stitching, Haul, and Cross Stitch Crushes

Good Morning!!! I hope you all had a great week full of stitching. I feel like I got quite a bit accomplished.

Mary-Nativity Series by Mill Hill

Joseph-Nativity Series by Mill Hill
I have joined an event on Stitch Maynia where you start a new project on the 18th of each month. This was my start for January 18 and it is just barely a start.

London-Thea Gouveneur
The picture makes the phone book look orange but it is more red in person.

Henry VIII-Heaven and Earth Designs
I am participating in an event called Stitchathon on the facebook group Cross Stitch Finish Line. Two weekends a month are designated as Stitchathons and you post a picture on Friday of your starting point, stitch as much as you can, and then post a picture of what you accomplished on Monday morning. Every 500 stitches gets you an entry into a drawing to win a gift card at the end of the year. I was able to get 1000 stitches done on Henry. It was pretty easy to get that many done as it was mostly just two colors. However, I am getting to a point of lots of confetti.

Love Never Fails-Barbara Ana
I picked up a couple of threads that I needed for this on Saturday and stitched the heart portion around the words. I had to rip out some and restitch and there is a small amount on the right side that isn't correct that I need to rip out as well. I didn't have good luck with this one over the weekend.

I went to Hobby Lobby on Saturday to get thread and saw this kit. I have had this pattern on my wish list and with their weekly 40% off coupon, it was only 19 for the whole kit so I couldn't pass it up.

12 Days of Christmas-Joan Elliott you are probably wondering what the heck is a Cross Stitch Crush. I am talking about other stitchers or flosstubers that you just love the projects they work on. For me, it is Nicole of Nicole's Needleworks. I LOVE everything she works on and I feel like I need it all. Also, Stephanie of MsOhSewCrafty. You can click on their names to check out their blogs and they both are flosstubers with the same name. If you haven't watched them or read their blogs, you should go check them out.
Who is your cross stitch crush?


  1. I'd say Barbara Ana is one of my favorite designers. I enjoy watching floss tube, but I really don't have a favorite, I guess I that is because I like them all. :) Total score on the Hobby Lobby kit finding. Happy Stitching :)

  2. You had a good stitching week, Laura. Nice score on the kit from Hobby Lobby. I guess my cross stitch crush would be any stitcher who continues to blog.

  3. I love your wips and you are making great progress.
