May Wrap Up...

The month of May is quickly coming to a close, so I thought I would take a few moments and show what have accomplished this month...

Up first, I started and completed a really cute pattern, featuring the dresses of three different Disney princesses...

Now, I just need to find the right frame for this piece...

Next, I pulled out my Big Bang Theory piece...

And, I finished the whole piece...

I pulled out my Harry Potter piece, too and finished up 3 more characters...

(Pattern designed by Tiny Needle)
Only 4 characters left to stitch.

I also did a bit of ice dying this month and really love how the fabric turned out...
(My inspiration was cotton candy and I think I achieved the look quite well.)

This past weekend, I had an idea pop into my head and I just had to try my hand at stitching it...
I think I may add a little bit more to it, but I really do love how it came out...

I made a new start last night...

Lastly, I am getting all my supplies ready for my first "hosted" stitch along...
I am really excited to start working on the bird patterns that I have picked out.

Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a fantastic and productive week!


  1. Congrats on the cute finishes Carrie. Love all of your other projects.


  2. Great finishes and progress. I especially like the Harry Potter piece.
    You fabric dying looks like it was a great success, they look really pretty.

    1. Thank you Ingrid! The Harry Potter piece is a lot of fun to work on; I'm looking forward to picking it back up.

  3. Congratulations on the great finishes. I am particularly partial to the Disney princess dresses (but, then again, I am partial to almost anything Disney). I've never heard of ice dying before. I'll have to Google it as your fabric is so beautiful.

    1. Thank you very much!
      I love Disney princess stuff, too. (Lots of patterns to prove that...lol!)

  4. Colourful post this time, lots of lovely designs you have been working on and nice fabric dyeing.

  5. You always find the cutest designs! I love the cotton candy fabric dyeing :D

  6. Going back a few posts... Lucie is really adorable! I hope the potty training is now finished!
    I'm glad you've got your stitching out again. You've made good progress so far and I'm looking forward to seeing how your first SAL is progressing. Good luck with it! :)

    1. Thanks so much Rachel!
      Lucie is doing very well and I think we finally have the potty training under control (at least I hope). :)

  7. Loving your hand dyed fabric, the colours are amazing!

    1. Thank you Cath! Now I have to figure out what colors I want to experiment with next...
