Day 14- stitching

So I could show you the yards and yards and yards of hand felled seams we did on all of our costumes this year. But, that would be boring and not very pretty to look at instead I will show you the projects that I hand sewed that I am the most proud of. The otters were a gift to my mom, there’s an otter for each of us kids, the chicken is a gift for a professor because of a in-class joke about her being the god of chickens, and the last is a hand sewed and them hand quilted baby blanket I made for my neice.

Day 7- pt 2

I worked on the cross stitch a little bit, I love the visual of the mandala chicken but switch thread colors all the time is getting annoying. But I also finished the final final piece of the ren fair costume journey for this year, the ring belt for Alok to wear with his pirate shirt. Since he is a bean pole a belt will help give the shirt some more shape

Day 2 pt 2- finding my thread

My Chicken God cross stitch will feature 21 colors, luckily I have all but 8 of those colors. The most confusing and frustrating part is that I might have those other 8 colors but they’re currently not sorted or carded in any way. Maybe tomorrow I will go through the insanity bin. I currently keep all my carded thread in gallon bags sorted into number ranges or specialty threads. One day I will have aestheticaly organized thread boxes where I can actually find the thread that I am looking for.

Day 1 pt 2 featuring The God Chicken

This is the sewing that I am currently working on. Though it is mostly just prepping right now. I am using 18 count Charles craft fiddler’s aida that I got at joanns. I made my grid according to the cross stitch grid and then put it into my hoop and put on my needle minder. The pattern and needle minder I bought on Etsy.
