A little progress

I am participating in a Mid-Week SAL.  My project for Weds is Blue Flame by Heaven and Earth Designs

Here is my progress.  This isn't even 1/4 of the first page.  This will take a while!

I have also re-ignited a new want to stitch on Lemons, Limes and More by Vermillion (Aug 2001 issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine)

I've opened an Etsy Shop!

I've decided to open an Etsy shop.  For now I've added my clay buttons but there will be more items added.  I'll be making beaded items along with qsnap covers for sure but debating on some other items.  Stay tuned:

Cinderella is Proof by Lizzie Kate

This was a boxer kit so it came with buttons and fabric but I provided the floss.  It called for GAST and Weeks along with one skein of DMC.  I didn't like the buttons on the shoes so decided not to use them.

Winter by Hinzeit

Winter by Hinzeit

I stitched this on a printed fabric from Dove Stitch.  It was purchased at a cross stitch show a few years ago.  I went to the site and don't see that it is available anymore but they have some other printed fabrics if you are interested.  I used rayon floss - #025 Glory by Edmar for the letters and DMC for the borderlines.  I haven't stitched the charms on just yet.  I need to get it iron first so just placed them on the fabric for the picture.  (note: I was not able to find this chart on any of the online shops that I usually use.  I know it is still available according to the Hinzeit site so it can be special ordered from a store/shop)

I made myself another bracelet.  I found this tutorial on Pintrest and it is on YouTube

Made myself a bracelet

With my love of coffee (and tea) I couldn't resist.  The beads are made of wood.  I love the toggle one end is a teapot and the other a spoon.  The little bag charm in the center is coffee beans and says coffee on the side.  The teacup charm has a little teabag tag hanging over the side.
