Hearts and cubes

Last week was supposed to be cirque des coeurs from Ink Circles
I started off ok, but I didn't get very far.

On the weekend I decided to pull out my Seba Cube SAL
This I actually made some progress on! I managed to get the rest of cube 1 and a start on cube 2

Cube 1 design

Cube 2 design

Since I have a busy week with my University course so I'm going to stick with the cubes!
Let's hope I can stick with it :)

Aliens to leaves

Last week I started my new rotation.

Monday was a holiday here in Ontario. I decided to take a day off from my University course as well and got some progress done!

Happy 2016!

It has been a very long time since I last posted on my blog. Not really sure why, but having issues with apps on my iPad didn't help. Also, Instagram just seems easier lately, so I tend to post there more then anywhere (bbrown426 if you want to follow me)
I am going to try and get back to posting one a week again... Let's see how it goes :)

I will update you on what I have worked on for the last quarter of 2015 later. Now on to this year.

On January 1st I started Spring Quakers from Rosewood Manor.
This was a SAL with Dani and Christin.

Dani and I both managed to finish this yesturday!! I used the Valdani threads (which were lovely) and stitched it on 32ct Queen Anne's Lace.

I absolutely loved this one, and can't wait to start the other 3!

Today I am going to attempt a rotation. University has cut into my stitching time, so I'm thinking that one project a week will still let me see progress :)
First up is Little Alien Schoolgirl from Ink Circles. I'm doing this one with the called for Weeks threads and I'm sticking it on Stephs 32ct toasted almond Lugana.
Here is my starting pic for the week

The Witches Wheel - DONE

I stopped at my LNS (Knowledge and Needles) this weekend and picked up some petite beads to go on my Witches Wheel.
I have beaded away the weekend and just had a happy dance!

And then there was 7

It's been over a month since I posted last... Again
I was having issues with the app I use on my iPad. But in the past few weeks, I honestly forgot or didn't feel like it. I seem to be posting to Instagram (@bbrown426) more then anything.
Hopefully I can start to keep up!

I am not going to show comparatives, but just update on my 7 current WIP's (in no particular order)

Autumn Leaves (Cross Stitch Collection) - currently on page 11 of 25

Bees Knees from Ink Circles

Santa's Village from Country Cottage Needleworks - 4/12 houses done

Fortunate Traveller from Teresa Wentzler

Witches Wheel from Glendon Place - just need to do the beads. I have decided to pull these ones out and switch to petites.

Twelve days of Christmas whimzies from Just Nan - really need to get back to these!

A Good Marriage from Lizzie Kate - started in August to celebrate my 10th... As you can see I didn't get far on it.

This one isn't included on the 7 since it's a small. This is bluebird tweet from Just Nan. I have purchased all of the little critters, and really need to get working on them!
