Hi all... :wave2: I was curious as to what everyone is currently cross stitching? I am currently working on L&L 'Angel of Grace' and a realistic Santa with his finger up to his mouth as though he is saying 'ssshh', it will have a border embelished with two different kinds on buttons down the entire left side of him. I am almost finished...just have his hand and some white and the border left.
I am always working on 2 - 4 cross stitch patterns at once. :banana:

I am not awake yet this morning, it is 7:45 am and when I read your message I started laughing :rotfl2: ...I thought...hhmm "life is too short to to drink wine", isnt it a little early for that :rotfl2: ....then ...duh, I realized that must be the name of your piece your stitching? I'm not familiar with it. Cherie'

Currently working on a birth annoucement for a friend. It has Pooh and Piglet on it. That should be done this weekend.

Then I am moving onto my Happiest Celebration on Earth kit :)

Hi Cobbler it is nice to meet you. That sounds cute. I love disney. I have stitched several Mickey Mouses, I collect mickey figurines. Funny thing is I haven't kept any of my Mickey samplers. I should be done w/ my santa but I have been very busy with my cross stitch group. I have finally found a comfy place to juggle both. Hopefully will be finished with him soon. Then I will be working on a second teacup.

Oh my goodness Ohio...your cat ate your needle?? NO WAY! I can'tbelieve that x-ray! Oh I am so happy to hear your cat is ok...that is very lucky! I have a terrible habit of leaving my needle on the arm of the couch where I stitch. Now if I park it there I park it on the side of the arm, where my 3 furry children cannot get hurt! :thumbsup2 I try put my needle on my magnet strip on my end table but old habits die hard.

That sounds nice Dreams. Is it Disney or do you own dobermans or something? I have two Yorkies, one a male, his name is Mickey who is almost 2, and a female Yorkie Poo, her name is Minnie who is almost 1. We also have 1 good ole' big fat (about 16 - 17 pounds) 12 yr old female long haired black and white cat. They most spoiled rotten kids I've ever seen. But I can't help myself...love em too much. :love:

Nice to meet you all...

I have no idea how to post picts and no one can help me. I have a Mac and the directions are not the same as the Microsoft.
This is what it will look like though if I ever finish it.

I love their colors! They fill in the colors DMC doesn't have and have great shading techniques.

Hi Bernard...I too am working on L&L..'Angel of Grace'. OOHHH you have Mirabilia patterns huh? I LOVE her work too. Did you all know she is the daughter of L&L patterns? I love both their patterns. I too would LOVE to stitch a Mirabilia fairy. Found 2 or 3 I would like to stitch, and yes, I can imagine how much you spent! But they are so worth it...LOL :thumbsup2

I too like to stitch on plastic canvas Twigs, although I have not done so in several years. Hey, i have a magnet exchange sign up started at my cross stitch group if you are interested? The Theme is 'Christmas In July", sign up ends June 10th and item does not need to be mailed till July 1st but no later. In case you are interested?! (of anyone else)

Hi Pixie...got your app. to join my cross stitch group. I accepted it this morning and we are THRILLED to have you! The more the merrier! Hope you enjoy your time at the group when you do come to visit.

:rotfl2: Cherie...my three furry babes are very spoiled...Minnie..my Yorkie Poo is a HUGE baby, and she does know it! :teeth: But she is a SWEETIE and a big love bug.

Take care all....Cherie'

Hi everyone. :wave2:

I am new to this section of the board.

I have been cross stitching for about 7 years, but haven't done much lately b/c I was in school, and I have 3 kids, so there hasn't been much time to devote to cross-stitching.

I am currently working on Monet's Artist's Garden at Giverny.

It is an extremely intricate design with TONS of colors. The directions suggested starting in the top left corner, rather than the middle of the fabric, and working one 'page' of the pattern at at time.

I have one page down, 11 to go. Here is what I have so far:

The completed rectangle is 1/3 of the width of the finished prodcut.


Here is what the finished product will look like:

As you can see, I have a LONG way to go!! :rolleyes:

I am VERY new to cross stitching and bought a small Snow White pattern. I would like to put it on a t-shirt for my daughter. Any ideas how to do this? Obviously it would be hard to do it right onto the t-shirt. THanks in advance for your help!

Hi Blake, actually it is not hard at all and using a T-shirt works just fine! I have done MANY cross stitch projects on all types of shirts. All you do is buy yourself some waste canvas and put some backing on the inside of the wrong side of the shirt you are going to be stitching on. The waste canvas is what you use instead of aida if you will. Then when you are completely done with all the stitching you wet it..then use tweezers to pull out all the waste canvas strands. THIS is the part I hate. Very time consumming and takes patience. But so rewarding when you are finished. I just made my mom an angel loaded with beads and my mother n law a wild cat, both shirts this past Christmas. They loved them. Oh yeah, you only want to hand wash these shirts after wearing them. Sometimes its nice to include a small not card typed up to include in your box if it is gift. Like a curteousy care for card. Good luck, let us know if you decide to make a shirt! Cherie'

StitchNTime,
Thanks for you help! Cross stitching has a vocab of it's own! I am going to take notes from your post and take it to Rag Shop and have them show me what I need! I have bought the shirt & the cross stitch--now just need the supplies. I will post again if I have questions! BTW, my mom's name is Shere. I think it is pronounced the same as yours, Cherie'.

Hi Blake it is nice to meet you! :wave: That is great you have a cross stitch store you can go to to get help. I'm sure they will point out everything you need for your project. Is this your first cross stitch project? Because I don't really recommend starting out with waste canvas as a first project....but thats me! The biggest pain is when your finished stitching it is pulling out all the threads. But it is so rewarding when your completely finished and can wear it. Good luck to you and hey....let me know how its going! I'd love to hear what you think of waste canvas. I LOVE using it cause like I said....nothing like WEARING your cross stitch and they can make very special gifts. Hugs, Cherie

By the way...my name is pronounced with the French pronounciation. Not Sherry. And just so you know in case you didn't already...there are two Cherie's here at DIS forums...but I put a hyphen on the end of my name. Happy stitching to you!! :banana:
