Another new mini #crossstitch project to break up the bigger ones. This is a #cloudsfactory pattern I received as a gift in a #xstitch exchange. Looking forward to seeing it come to life :) #lighthouse #maritime #canada #needlework #embroidery

And that’s a wrap.
This absurd thing was started in March.  I was stitching the first tank when my mother came into the office with her diagnosis.  I sat on her hospital bed while I laid down 72 poppies.  This is dedicated to her — cancer-free, five months later, and still asking me strange questions about the First World War at 1am.
I’d like to thank everyone who reblogged my work-in-progress photos, and everyone who said such kind words about the project.  All of you kept me going when I was exhausted from nursing and household-running and interpersonal drama.  If this is any good, it’s because of the unfailing encouragement of my readers.  Big sloppy grandma kisses for the lot of you.
I’d particularly like to thank Dan Carlin of Horrible Histories for his podcast.  The three Blueprint for Armageddon episodes (x, x, and x) were an invaluable source of information — and entertainment, during the process.  In addition to HH, I listened to the BBC’s inimitable series, The Great War, as well as BBC’s The First World War, BBC’s 1914-1918, Roy McMillan’s narration of Seven Pillars of Wisdom, Robin Sach’s narration of A World Undone, and my own WWI playlist compiled from contemporary songs, Dear Old Blighty (also available on Firedrive).
Last but not least, and as always, you can see all of the previous work-in-progress photographs right here.
Thanks, everyone!

I finished stitching this little project for my darling, @kaylaaamarieee. Hopefully it gets framed sometime soon. #crossstitch #lanadelray

Love the quote & such a pretty color to stitch on.

I took a writing class last semester and one of the books we read was Charlotte’s Web. One of our main discussion points was why this book is not just for children, but can teach adults important lessons as well. I think we can all learn a little bit about life and love from Wilbur and Charlotte. You can also learn to weave beautiful webs like the wise black widow with this embroidery patten. Send me a message if you would like patterns for some of Charlotte’s other awe-inspiring web art. :)

Also finished the cross-stitch card for my Dad’s retirement (only 2 weeks late, but in all fairness I *have* been exceptionally ill…)

Just found out that the plaza less than 1/2 a mile from my apartment not only has a yarn shop, but also has a cross stitch/needlework shop too… I’m excited but I think I’m not going to be able to stick to a budget like planned.

This took ~36 weeks to complete.  I took a picture of it every week to keep track of my progress.  The completed image is about 15”x18” (38.1 x 45.75 cm) and got triple-matted and framed and is now above the mantel.

Stitched on Aida with DMC thread.  Also used gold beads (which you can’t see because they’re on light brown stitches) and blending filaments and gold metallic thread.  I cut down the sides from the original, because after 36 weeks I was ready to be done. XD  Also the sides were just more of the bottom border, and that was deadly dull as it was.

I really enjoyed the more colorful bits and the backstitching.  Probably the last big project I will do in needlework for a while, though.  This was completed in July 2012.

Finished up my first lyric cross stitch tonight :) Still needs to be framed (and it’ll be centered when it is), and the lettering is purple in case you can’t tell that part, but I’m proud anyway. :)
