Hello again and welcome to my little corner of crafting. This will be a fairly long post and I'll have a second post up after this one so bear with me. First off I want to post my finish. My chair is done! It took me about a year and was done all by hand as I wanted it to cost as little as possible I used hand tools and boy I wish I had bought a power saw. But it turned out better than I could have hoped. I wanted to use it as storage as well so that I could have a place for all of my crafting supplies and it has more room than I thought! Without further ado:
Pay no mind to the lamp in the middle of the shot :) This thing is really comfortable and big. I only had a vague design in mind when I did it but I think the black and white looks good. It's adjustable so it can go further back as well. I put a lot of blood and sweat in this but no tears :)
Secondly I have some new stash. Michaels had a coupon for Black Friday which was 40% off entire purchase which is what I used to buy the rest of the floss and fabric needed for all of the charts I have left. Needless to say my receipt was long.
Could've been longer but I didn't buy what I wouldn't use. I also bought some new Christmas earrings and some more fabric dye while I was there.
I spent all of last night putting it on bobbins and putting it in my floss book which is looking quite huge.
I estimate I have around 350 bobbins now.
I also have a new project I'm doing that I'm trying to have finished before Christmas as a present. My husband's good friend loves Tinkerbell so he basically bought a kit and asked if I would stitch it for her for Christmas. Okay asked may be a nice way of putting it lol. It uses anchor floss and has some metallics in it as well.
The name will say Kelli but I offered to have it say Tinkerbell instead. It's a cute pattern I think, not quite so traditional looking but it's on aida which isn't my favorite. I almost stitched it on linen but didn't want some aida laying around that I wouldn't use. But I've made some fair progress so far
I hope I can have it done by Christmas but we'll see.
My next post will be a tutorial on how I dye my fabric since I had some interest in my last post. Hope to see you over there if not TTFN-Ta Ta For Now!
