BoInk Update

It's getting so close! I didn't get to stitch much last week due to VBS but I did manage to work on it on Saturday. I am refusing to let myself do the last block until all else is finished.

A New Start and an Old Finish

Here's my new start. It's Robin Hood by Little House Needleworks. As soon as I saw this design I knew I had to stitch it!

This is my first time to finish a project into a "cube". I couldn't decide on what ribbon to use for a bow on top so right now it just won't have one.

And as you can see, maybe it doesn't even need a bow.

Framing Happy Dance

I framed this small piece today to practice on before I attempt a bigger project. The blog, (sorry, I haven't quite figured out how to add a link yet) , by the Twisted Stitcher has some great tutorials. I had framed some things before but it wasn't the correct way. Now I think I may have the confidence to frame some of my larger projects myself which will save me quite a bit of money in the future. I'm hoping to try some of the other finishing ideas on her blog soon.

I have started a new cross stitch project. I should be posting a progress pic of it towards the end of the weekend.

BoInk Progress

It won't be long before this is finished! I'm trying to be good and save the last block for the end while I finish up the frame and borders.
