Adult coloring mandala


I used my Prismacolor pencil crayons and few markers to color this image.  I tried to focus on blending and think I did alright.  Please feel free to print this image and color it.

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 http://pintangle.com/ 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 pintangle.com   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!

Work in Progress Wednesday


This is one of those pieces that has been hanging around for a while.  I created it with the intention of doing some bead embroidery on it.  Today I added some Smooch Ink to it in places to add some glimmer because beads weren't going to add enough right?

I heart Macro

When I first glanced at this flower I would have called it white.  That is not how I would describe it after photographing it with my macro lens!  That is what I love about macro it makes me see things in a new way and that is always good.

October Crazy Quilt

I am having trouble getting my crazy quilt projects done on time each month.  At the beginning of the year I had a clear vision as to what I wanted to get done.  Due to that I was able to get my blocks finished quickly for the first four months.  Since then I have been floundering.  I am persisting though.  There are only two blocks left to do for the year.  I can do it!

Have fun with this free mandala


Click on the top image to print it.  The image below is my coloring of that mandala.  I used Sharpie markers and Smooch inks.  Smooch inks have amazing glimmer but I did not capture it very well.  Possibly you can see it in the center gold part.

Jo has posted her lovely coloring  of my mandalas at http://stitchability.blogspot.ca/2015/11/this-and-that.html  Check it out.

Take a Stitch Tuesday

I struggled with this stitch.  For some reason I just couldn't get it to stick in my head.  I started out trying it on paper as is my practice this time around with Take a Stitch Tuesday.  I just couldn't get it to work.  Now I have done it on my October CQ block.  Yes, I am running behind.  At least I had time to give this stitch a try.  Pintangle
