March Update…

I completely forget to tell you all that I joined the School of Magical Stitches & Literature group on Facebook. As a group we are reading (or in most cases re-reading) the books in order; while completing weekly “Homework” pieces and smashing our WIPs Piles.

My Stitch From Stash journey is going pretty well! I did buy some things in February; but I also sold a lot of things while I was away at the Crewe Retreat.

I know that this Instagram post mentioned a Secret Project for my workplace; don’t worry! I will be sharing my progress; as I don’t think any of my work collegues are in the FlossTube or Stitching Community…

Since I last wrote, I have working hard on a piece I bought while at the Retreat. I have been using it as” Homework” and for the Monthly SALs of The Ultimate Cross Stitch Group. I am in the process of filming FlossTube #28; so you will be seeing my ugly mug again soon!

Until the next row…

Welcome to 2019!

I cannot believe that I have not posted anything since NOVEMBER! Terrible I know; I had been having issues with my laptop – I was unable to stream on Twitch and record my FlossTube episodes; however – “Father Christmas” (aka my Grandfather) gave me some pennies and I bought a lovely new laptop! I am so happy that I will now be able to get myself back up and running!

As we are now in 2019 – I know?! Already? I made the decision when planning for my latest FlossTube (Episode #26 – the Stash Edition), I found that I had MANY, MANY charts and lots of fabric! I made the decision that I will Stitch From Stash for the year. I have joined a group on Facebook where I can record my Finishes etc. The group is based on the original (I am guessing that this blog was where it all started?!) idea created by Mel of Epic Stitching. The scary thing, is that I have already completed THREE pieces! Can you believe it? Three in January…

I have been posting my process on Instagram; but if you have not seen them – here they are:

Amazing right? I am wanting to do all the Mini Bunnies from the Just Cross Stitch magazine – so keep your eyes peeled for more.

I have also joined the School of Magical Stitches group; where we are reading Harry Potter and stitching! This group; along with the usual monthly events from The Ultimate Cross Stitch Group, I know that I will beat me stash down. I have decided just to purchase thread from Kate at Lakeside Needlecraft; as it is so affordable. I have not cancelled any of the subscriptions that I started in 2018 – Just Cross Stitch and Cross Stitcher

What was your New Year’s Stitching resolutions? Come on, share them!

I am REALLY excited about this issue! Are you? You can order your copy at XStitch Magazine. Currently, there are 5 issues; issue #6 is coming soon – so keep an eye open on the main website or XStitch Facebook page. The issues are:

Jamie aka Mr X Stitch and his mighty fine crew have also released MERCHANDISE! There are tote bags, shirts and a lot more! Come on payday and get here quicker! There are LOADS I want to buy!

I have been going through the copies I have got; which it from the beginning and I have labelled with ones I want to do in 2019. I have decided to “Stitch from Stash” – crazy I know but hopefully it will work. I am going to be using Epic Stitching’s rules and I have already joined a group on facebook that is going to help me! I missed the 2017-2018 ‘intake’, so I am currently watching for the rest of the year! I am very excited about 2019!

I am hoping to be doing another FlossTube episode soon. I am going to be doing a Stash Episode – ready for 2019…will you be watching?

Until the next row…
