May SAL with Helene

Happy Wednesday!

I know, it’s the end of June, but I’ve only just finished my May mystery stitch along from Hélène et Mahélia. I think that I’ve been so cold when I was down in Melbourne that I haven’t been motivated to cross stitch much but I really want to get back to it, because I just really love this year’s designs 😊

May was birds again, and just look at them, they are adorable!

I still need to finish off the April one and obviously do this one as well, I might get them done over the weekend.

In other random news, today was Dobby the house elf’s birthday apparently, and so I wore two different socks (mostly cause I couldn’t find my second grey sock from the washing 😂). I thought some of you who are as obsessed with Harry Potter as me might enjoy the gesture 😁

WIP Wednesday – May Joyful World

Happy Wednesday crafters!

I hope you’re all having a great week! I have made more progress this month on my Joyful World from the Snowflower Diaries.

I have pretty much done all the greenery and I need to add the critters for this month, a couple of cats in the middle and a dove on one the branches.

This is what the rest looks like as a reminder 😊

Have a great rest of the week (and no, my yarn still hasn’t arrived 😢)

April SAL with Helene

Hello readers!

I am very late this month for the SAL I participate in, over at Helene et Mahalia. But I finally finished! yay! I’m probably going to get straight onto May and finally catch up by the end of the month (it should be easier too once the ripple blanket is finished).

Anyway, here it is! It’s super cute as usual, and this last month was a mama bear and her cub 🙂 so lovely!

I will turn this into another ornament for my collection 🙂

WIP Wednesday – joyful world

Hello lovely readers!

We are planning on moving next week so our house is starting to get packed. This means I had to get some of my craft supplies sorted, especially the bigillion embroidery threads that got passed on to me. And the beads! So many beads… 


Most of those will go into boxes but I’m keeping enough threads to work on my joyful world SAL from the Snowflower Diaries

This is where it was at last time. 


And now I’ve almost finished April, with only the ground to finish stitching. 


And here is all the stitching I’ve done so far, just to remind you (and me) 😊


Now, back to packing a few things before bed!

March SAL with Helene

Happy Friday!

Once again I am joining in Helene’s Stitch along on her blog Helene et Mahelia.

This month’s design is another forest critter, a little robin! This month was super quick to stitch, and I turned this birdie into another cute ornament.

Have a great weekend!

WIP Wednesday – joyful world update

Happy Wednesday!

The week has already been super busy with starting to tutor again for the semester at university and a big experiment under way, but I’ve managed to get some stitching time. I’ve dug up my joyful world calendar from the Snowflower diaries and started stitching April. 


Isn’t this bunny the cutest? There is also a cherry tree and a squirrel that will go to the right of this month. Now that I’ve started again on this piece I’m really excited to keep going and finish it, hopefully it won’t take the whole year!

February SAL with Helene

Hello readers!

I just realised that I forgot to post yesterday evening! Whoops 😬 

February is over and so far I’m managing to keep up with the SAL from Hélène et Mahélia

Here is my February month, those little foxes are just too cute!


And I’ve also made a little ornament to go with my owl one. I will be crocheting a link to put all this year’s ornaments on and make a bunting with all those cute little forest critters 🙂


Until next time!

December SAL with Helene 

Hello readers!

That’s it! I’ve finally stitched all the 2016 designs organised by Helene. Now I need to get my fabrics organised and get sewing, to make my nana a quilt with all the finished cross stitch pieces. 


Better get that sewing machine warmed up!

2016crossstitch

Happy Friday!

As promised, today is part 2 of my 2016 roundup: my finished cross stitch projects.

In total, I have finished 20 cross stitch projects last year, 10 from Helene et Mahelia SALs, 2 Christmas gift bags, 1 wedding album cover, 1 ornament, 1 pair of earrings, 1 table centre, 1 bookmark, 1 Ravenclaw shield, 1 hoop art and my big PokeAlphabet.

That’s a few less than the crochet projects but it’s still pretty good. I have also a few started projects for this year, like the Joyful World from Snowflower diaries, which I hope to finish this year 🙂

Have a great weekend!
