Non-Christmas Stitching!

Amazing... I'm done with my Christmas gift cross-stitching, and almost done with my crochet gift stitching! So last night I took a little break and worked on my Mermaid of the Deep. I want to get her done by Dec 31st.

I think it may be possible - I still don't stitch any faster, but those three dark blue stitches in the bottom left hand corner are that actual bottom of the pattern. She has a very tiny bit of confetti left around her waist and the rest is fairly solid blocks, about six shades of blue. I still find it hard to believe there are 88 colors in there, even though I've used them all... I love HAED patterns.

I also stitched a little sprite last night - this is Jill from the game Cake Mania!

That's one of the first time-management games I ever played, so I wanted to stitch her! The pattern is from Dork Stitch - which is an absolutely awesome blog! :D I want to stitch mooooore!

But for now - it's back to Christmas Hats for Family Members. I have one left to go, and two shawls to get finished. And one shawl that needs fringe... then I'm done with Christmas gifts! Yay!
.
Hope everyone is warm and safe - it's cold and icy here.

  1. Thank you very much for stitching Jill! She looks so shiny there! That mermaid project is so impressive, though! I hope you are able to get it done by your goal- it looks quite doable.

  3. Hello! I feel a bit like this is comment spamming, but since there's no proper response mechanism on Blogger, this seemed like as good an option as any. I've never done a pattern of Vincent Valentine before, but I'll do my best to have patterns of both him and Scarlett tomorrow! Thanks *very* much for the requests!
