Finished Project: Water is Life

Happy Friday everyone, I’m back with another politically-minded embroidery project.

A photo of an embroidery hoop on a green background. The words "water is life" are embroidered in blue and surrounded by concentric circles embroidered in various shades of blue.

This one is done with three strands of floss in different shades of blue on what I think is cotton (it’s a random fabric from my stash). I intended the concentric circles to represent ripples on the surface of water. I also learned that I can’t freehand draw very even circles.

The finished hoop is available for purchase in my Etsy store. If you like this project, consider donating to Earthworks or Charity:Water, which both work to provide clean and safe drinking water to people throughout the world.

Finished Project: Sleepy Fox

After a long hiatus of not posting because I had no finished projects to share, I finally finished something! I’ve been working on this cross stitched fox for a long time (it was supposed to be for a friend’s birthday, which was in August).

I guess it will just be an early present for his birthday this year!

The pattern is from Daily Cross Stitch.

WIP Wednesday: Last update of 2015

Happy last Wednesday of 2015, gentle readers! I thought we could ring out 2015 with a round-up of my as-yet-unfinished cross stitches:

2015-12-30 16.24.03

First, more progress this week on the Simpsons on the couch.

2015-12-30 16.25.38

And an update on the flower of the month project. Just January and February to finish in the new year!

2015-12-30 16.24.59

And some older projects I’ve been working on a while, like this sleeping fox.

2015-12-30 16.24.41

And the Steotchalong, which I obviously abandoned two weeks in. The half and quarter and blended stitches just got to me too much!

My new year’s resolution is to finish all of these in 2016, and of course to start new projects, too! Do you have any resolutions for 2016, crafting or otherwise?
