Since my princess is done I have started a new project. Here’s day one progress. The image is Frost Moon Fairy by Nene Thomas, the mini pattern from Heaven and Earth Design. I’m a little concerned because it’s so small I don’t know how the detail will come out. On the plus side, it’s stitching up quickly, so we’ll see
I always have that concern when I start a complicated project, but everything always works out in the end. This looks great so far! :)
My team and I have developed a bunch of fun and unique products for you stitchers out there that are bored always having to stitch fabric.
We are releasing more products next week so favorite our etsy shop if you want to stay on top of all the new stuff!
Eleventh Doctor needlepoint project is finished!
This one was a surprise present for good bro stopitsgingertime, DW intern, birthday-haver and film student extraordinaire! The pink jacket is entirely her fault.

Very nice! I love the effect on the moon (or the nimbus, whichever it is supposed to be).
I wear a pink jacket now. Pink jackets are cool.
And I’m running out of quotes.
Is anyone else having trouble with drafts? I find my drafts only save 50% of the time. And sometimes they’ll save but I can only access them from the device I saved them on. I usually take pictures on my phone, but I prefer to write the description on my iPad or my computer. So I save a draft with the pictures from my phone and edit it from elsewhere. But sometimes I have to save the draft a few times before it actually saves.
Anyways, Amy is almost done! Yayness! Which means I’m almost half done this piece, because the Doctor is right there with her. I’m actually working on his sleeve right now. The unfortunate part is that Amy is probably the most interesting thing about this project. Like I said last week, this really wasn’t the best picture to base a pattern off of. So much shadow. But I love this scene so much (it will become more obvious once I’m farther along) and since this is a bit of an experiment that I’m making for myself, I’m okay with that.
And on a somewhat related note, those last two episodes were my favourites of the season. Loved them!
"I found you. I found you in words like you knew I would. That’s why you told me the story. The brand new ancient blue box. Oh clever, very clever. Something old. Something new. Something borrowed. Something blue."
I haven’t been as active on here as I’d like lately. I’m hoping to start getting in here more often again. But I have had plenty of time for cross stitching! I finally got to add some colour into Amy’s hair and details in her arm this week. Yay!
"Is that how it is, then? You never interfere in the affairs of other people or planets, unless there’s children crying."
I love this part, and I hate it. It looks like nothing, just big chunks of dark, dark blue (there’s actually two different shades in there, not that you can really tell). You can kind of see the start of Amy’s arm if you angle it a certain way, but for the most part it looks like nothing.
But then you start to add other colours and all of a sudden that nothing becomes something. That’s what I love, how this seemingly horrid, boring section will soon start to look like a picture.
Also I watched Selfie last night and Karen’s American accent is terrible. I still love her, though.
"It’ll be fine. I know it will. I’ll be with him, like I should be. Me and Rory, together."
I’m a couple days late posting this update but with the new episode airing here in a little over an hour, it seemed like it was time to finally post this.
If anyone is curious, I lost track of time because I got way too into The Giver Quartet. And if you like reading as much as I do, I have a book blog now. </shameless plug>
Anyways, there was a lot of navy and dark navy in this section, it got pretty boring after awhile. I picked the worst picture to base this off of, so many shadows. But I still love it, and I can’t wait to get started on the Doctor’s section.
