in the works...

I've got a lot of projects that are either in the works, or planned to be in the works, so I thought I'd do a quick update.


Above, a Mother's Day gift for my mom. I really don't see this getting finished by Sunday. I had forgotten how long counted cross-stitch actually takes. And please, no comments about my doing this wrong and not starting in the middle. I can't think that way, so I cross-stitch weird.

These are some sketches that I've started for a painting. Those are zombie objects and they are for a special request from a friend. Not my typical style to do zombies, but I'm totally digging them.

mmm coffeeee

This is for a secret something that I'm hoping to work on more this weekend and coming week. If all goes as planned, I'll be sharing more info next week.

And this, dear blog friends, is a completed project. I made hexagons, I stitched them together, and I made a pincushion. My first! I found that making the hexagons was quite enjoyable, but also time-consuming. I admire those that make quilts out of these babies, because...whoa. I can't even imagine.

(And a reminder: The 1000th post giveaway is still going a few posts down!)


  1. I am an avid cross stitcher and I don't follow the rules. I stitch where I want, when I want and all over the place. I mix colors and do my own thing.

    That's art! :-) Have fun.

  2. Oooh...love your hexagons + zombie doodles! Cute!! :) I love the cross-stitch, too...I can't wait to see it finished!!

  3. Cute zombie apple :) Love the hexagon pin cushion too - bet that snipping the shapes out took some concentrating!

  4. I dig those zombies too. I'm thinking a felt bracelet come October For Sure.

    Also love the hexagon. Quilt time!
