Work in Progress Wednesday

Very close to the end of November but this is my start on my CQ block for the month.  I think I have a shot at getting finished as I don't have much on plate at the moment.  I am ready for some quiet stitching time!  These are definitely not my typical colors.  I do like the look of this though.  I have added the  Whipped Double Chain that Sharon B. at showed.  I decided to add a bead to the whipped part.  Beads are always good!

Take a Stitch Tuesday

I have been too busy to be able to participate in Take a Stitch Tuesday with Sharon B at   for a while.  It felt good to do the the Butterfly Chain Stitch today.  I think it worked rather well stitching onto the handmade paper.  The paper is in fact pink with silver fleck but the camera didn't capture that properly.

I heart Macro

Flowers are absolutely fascinating to me.  I wish I had a lens that would take microscopic images!

Coloring Page

So glad we haven't had any snow yet.  I had a lot fun coloring this snowflake design.  I used Inktense pencils and some metallic ink to add details.  Please feel free to print and color this design.

More work in Progress

This butterfly has been machine stitched, hand stitched and hand colored.  It is becoming a doodle cloth as I keep adding more marks.  I am having fun trying out different media on it.   I have used Prismacolor pencil crayons, Smooch Ink, Caran d'ache watercolor crayons and Inktense.  I think it might be ready for some beading now.

Coloring page

A  simple design this week.  Sometimes it is nice to have something a little bit easy to do. I used watercolor pencils and Smooch Ink.  I love the shimmer of Smooch Ink.  As always, please freely enjoy coloring this!
