Tish Canvas

January 4, 2018

My first start of the year. Just a small Tish canvas that may become an ornament. It is my “sit and stitch” project. No stitch guide. I am just “punting” 😃 I have stitched everyday this year so far… is only the 4th 😇


FINISHED Fire and Ice 🔥❄️

December 31, 2017

This is my 701st blog post. I just happen to look at my stats and realized just how long I have been writing this blog. It started out to be a fun way to store records of my projects. I could save pictures and stitching notes. In my wildest dreams I never thought so many people would enjoy watching my progress. Many blogs have come and gone but you who follow and comment have made this very special for me. Stitchlady says thank you.‼️

Here is Fire and Ice complete:

I love ❤️ when I get to choose or go back to a project. It is always like starting something new even if I am just getting back to. WIP.

On this last day of 2017 I wish every stitcher a year of new projects that excite you, new needle minders that you must have, threads that just feel so good and many relaxing hours with a needle in hand. Thank you for being a part of my stitching life. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉HAPPY NEW YEAR 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

Fire and Ice Third Column Finished

December 26, 2017

Yeah.. the third column is finished and I am very happy with the results. Originally there was no orange or yellow in my kit and after seeing all the fires in California I decided I wanted to add some orange and just a touch of yellow. Here is the final column. Now I am creating ice. My goal is to finish this before the end of the year.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas holiday.

Fire Middle Column …..

December 19, 2017

The middle column is almost done. I have had fun with it. I did sit back and study the design and decided I needed to stop being so creative… was time to pull things together. I have spent two days doing tent in the bare canvas areas. I changed thread and direction but I am really happy the way it has come together. I have the top area yet to do.. Still thinking.

Fire and Ice Progress

December 14, 2017

I just now realized that my photo in the last post never uploaded properly.  😟😟😟 WordPress really frustrates me at times. I just refuse to upgrade and have to pay. I have always used the free platform. 

I have made more progress on this project. Let’s try for a good photo.

Ice Beginning on Fire and Ice

December 11, 2017

I took a few hours to stitch today. I rewarded myself after I got my UPS packages on their way. ‼️‼️

I decided I was a little tired of designing the middle…too much red. The Ice portion of the design is super easy requiring decisions on only the width, color and height of each of the Ice columns. There are more Ice columns than Fire. This is giving me time to stare at the center column for additional creative ideas, like maybe a touch of yellow/orange. I am using Toni’s general heights and widths. Not counting but approximating.

Creative Fire

December 9, 2017

I am enjoying this project. The holiday season is cutting down on my stitching time 😟. I finally took the leap and began on the “design your own” middle column. I have no idea what the final result will be. I am just stitching trying to obtain an upward flow for the fire. Am I getting there?
