Stitch Maynia Update

Happy Monday everyone, hope everybody had a great weekend!

I had a wonderful weekend, full of lots of stitching, Netflix binge watching and time with my family...
...what more could a girl ask for...

So, an update on my Stitch Maynia progress...
Day Six (May 6th)
I decided to stitch a pattern I bought last Christmas...
(It was a little Christmas gift to myself.)

The pattern comes from PlatoSquirrel on Etsy and is called Kawaii Spices.

I am stitching it on 14 ct. white Aida...
(I have a LOT of white Aida, so I use that for most projects.)

Day 7 (May 7th)
I stuck with the Kawaii Spice theme and began stitching another PlatoSquirrel design...

Again, it is being stitched on 14 ct. white Aida fabric.
These patterns are so cute and a lot of fun to stitch.  I actually ended up visiting the shop again this weekend and buying a ton more.  I just couldn't help myself!

Day 8 (Mother's Day)
Today's start was a pattern I bought for Mother's Day...
It comes from an Etsy shop, Fuzzy Fox Designs and is called "Proud Little Peacock"...
Here is what the finished piece will look like:

My start...
Started on 14 ct. white Aida...

I bought a lot of patterns in this shop, too!  Everything was so cute, I couldn't resist.

Well, my floss order arrived from 123stitch, so it is time to wrap some bobbins and start on my next project.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!


  1. Your TUSAL jar is filled with lots of lovely threads.

    1. Thanks Ingrid! I am really enjoying my current stitching projects; they are so much fun.

  3. Thanks Carrie. I HAD to go visit those shops. lol Love your new starts.


  4. Wow Carrie :) I was just looking at where the traffic to my Etsy store has come from and I saw your blog and followed it back to here :) It's absolutely made my day to see a blog post with my pattern in it! I know what you mean about the unfinished projects... I have many of them myself, so when I design things I aim to keep them interesting - if it bores or frustrates me to stitch them because they are too big or too complicated others are bound to feel the same way :) Thank you so much for your support. Rachel (Fuzzy Fox Designs)

    1. Thank you Rachel for stopping by and commenting! I really love your patterns. (There will be more showing up for this challenge.)
