A Bit of Yarr, A Bit of Love

Here's my teeny-tiny bit of Yarr, from yesterday.  I got about 300 stitches done, though it certainly doesn't look it! So tiny! Also, there are five shades of blue and grey in it!

Here's my project that I'm starting today - I found two of this brand-name of kits at a flea market last year. There was no date that I could find, but they were old enough that the needle had rusted to the fabric.  I'll show you however much I get done of it tomorrow, and the other kit I will start this month, too.

It makes me sing the Beatles song 'All You Need is Love' whenever I see it!  Also, the actual floss colors are very bright, bubble-gum style colors which makes me think it's probably an early-80's kit.

I got a $10 gift card from another friend, and I spent it at Witchykitt Designs, cleaning off the last of my wishlist.  The lady who owns it says she'll be putting new designs up at the end of January - but for now, I have all the charts I want from it because there was also a 50% off coupon!  Here's a few:

'Keeper of Time'

and 'Paradise Bird'

I got all of these and four more and ended up with a couple pennies on my card.  So that was a fun day!  I'll show you guys the four others later; they kind of go together.


  1. It's funny but every time I see a cross stitch kit picture, I now examine it to see how many colour changes it will take. That has put me off a lot of kits!

  2. More great stash Tama. I like the kit and you good progress on your new start.


  3. Great start on Yarr =) It's always fascinating how many different colors there are =)

    I love the new charts you got and I am looking forward to see them stitched up =)

  4. The Love kit is so cute! I heard the Beatles song in my head when I saw that too! Witchykitt has great designs!

  5. Great start on Yarr, I love that picture!
