Stitchmaynia 2019

Feeling like stitching a little summer.

The next of the stitchmaynia projects to be completed is Sunshine on a Stem by Hands on Design.  Stitched on 18 count ivory Aida stitched one over one.  DMC flosses were used 729, 3781, 3341, 420 and 931. A fun and very fast project.  The felt was included with the pattern.  Written instructions were given.

First project started is from Heart in Hand Needleart.  The April pattern is the design that pulled me in the most.  I love the color orange and those carrots are the best!! DMC colors:. Blanc, 3031, 721, 935, 921, 676, 471 and 382.  Classic Colorworks candied yams also utilized.i encourage you to check out Heart in Hand Needleart patterns in your local shop or online.

Heart in Hand craze continues!!  The square Dance patterns released this year really caught my eye!! This is the month of June.  I utilized a variety of flosses.   DMC Blanc and 341, 3031, 612 and 932.  Classic Colorworks  flosses in blacksmith blue, Carrie berry, pink Posey and strawberry parfait added subtle variegation to the stitching.  Have you ever seen popcicles like these?  Fantastic!!

I fell in love with Heart in Hand designs this year.  I stitched several for stitchmaynia.  The February pattern in the new Square Dance Collection was first.  I stitched on coffee/tea dyed Aida 14 count with two strands of floss.  The colors were DMC Blanc and 3031 as well as Classic Colorworks: pink Posey, strawberry parfait, licorice red and carrie berry.  What a cute and fun project.  I have an idea how I woukdike to fully finish it, so stay tuned.

Another very sweet cross stitch project came from October House Fiber Arts.  The designer also dyes yarn!! She has cute patterns some of which are knitting themed.  I stitched this pattern - You are Loved on 18 count Aida 1 over one with size 26 needles.  The colors are all DMC:. 3712, 3833, 3779 and 963.  The links are so pretty!

I decided to start 10 projects for the month of May during Stitchmaynia.  

This one modified from the original pattern by The Primitive Hare:  Summer Solostice.  I stitched on 14 count coffee/tea dyed Aida with two strands of DMC floss.  The colors are:. 832, 834, 310, 938 and 640.  This is the first time I used StitchyPop ball tip cross stitch needles and enjoyed it quite a bit!

The next several posts will all be about the new starts and some finishes!
