I’ve been given this hamster. With a pumpkin. *waves arms*
2/9 panels finished! I’m doing ‘unbearable’ next.
I have never seen another soul in the embroidery supplies section of my local craft store. There are only 2 in my whole city and i go to the biggest. Nobody even seems to know that section exists. THE WOMEN DIDNT KNOW WHAT MY THREADS WERE OR WHAT RING THEM UP AS. I have to get black floss when i…
I love my local Hobbycraft (UK Craft store). I needed extra black thread and they only had 2, when we asked they bought out this massive bag of it. Thread here isn’t cheap, but the service is great. They always have new kits in too.
Phew - just the backstitch to go. The green shading was tedious, but quick enough to do.
A happy couple!
Sabrina stitched me this patch!!!
I saw this and legit started singing. I LOVE THIS SONG.
i have 1000+ followers oh my gosh
I’m literally never buying another Cross Stitcher magazine that includes the free project again. I ran out of thread on 3 different colors and had to buy more. I don’t understand why they provide way too much of one color that’s barely used but don’t…
Oh, that reminds me of another pet peeve! When they use cheap rubbish thread that you don’t have enough of, so you go buy some more and the colours don’t actually match. Not even slightly.
A long episode of Project Runway later… and an unbackstitched Bear has appeared!
Just finished this lovely owl stitch from VickieDesigns :) got the owl from her etsy. The hearts and flowers around him came from a cross stitch motif book that my fiance got me for Christmas last year.
This is amazing, I love the flowery additions and the owl’s new colours are perfect!

Currently stalking the progress of this, it’s so freaking nice!
I’m literally never buying another Cross Stitcher magazine that includes the free project again. I ran out of thread on 3 different colors and had to buy more. I don’t understand why they provide way too much of one color that’s barely used but don’t provide twice as much of the colors that make up most of the pattern.
This frustrates me so freaking much. Honestly, most magazine kits are terrible. The thread is cheap, and snaps easily. They also use bizarrely short lengths that nobody uses ever. And then there’s not enough! Cross Stitcher is the worst, as on top of the bad thread they use the worst, cheap aida. I even got some that was burnt once. Burnt.
I started Dictionary Of Bears a while ago (I’m a HUGE Bothy Threads fan) but I only got this square done. So, I’m going to try and finish it.
Finished! First finish in months.
