They all have lovely blogs and wonderful work to show!! Please give them some love on a Monday c: 

Anyway, it's about time to post some new pictures here, so I want to show you what I've been working on away from the sewing room! Namely, cross stitching and embroidery ♥ 

Lots of Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery stuff going on around here! I took a really long break from my Spring Sampler, so I'm working a bit on that while I wait to get some more fabric for my Summer one! By the way, if you want to find their older patterns, you can find them on their Craftsy and Kitschy Digitals stores. Not affiliated btw! I just love them, and I've gotten lots of questions on IG about where to pick them up c: I've been loving Satsuma Street on Etsy, too! I've gotten her London and Paris patterns already, planning to pick up Tokyo and the Pirate ship one soon!! They're so much fun to look at it and work on. Although, I do believe I accidentally used 22 count Aida instead of 18...I've never used anything smaller than 14!! Whoops. It's a little late to change it, but it's been somewhat frustrating to work so small, and I don't know if I want to do 3 more projects at that scale...thoughts?

My brief foraying into embroidery! I wanted to learn in high school so badly, but I was terrible at it. I had no focus to sit and learn something like it! I've definitely reached a point in my life where that is much easier for me haha. So, I've been working on this sampler, but in floss, not crewel. It's been so much fun so far, and it's helping me grow leaps and bounds in my embroidery. Those are my first real french knots right there!! The little cat design is a combination of patterns from this book, it's too adorable! It's decorating a glasses case that I finished last week...should make a post about that too...

Anyway! Happy Monday everyone!
