December 31

As this is the last day of the year I wanted to share updates of my progresses.

I started a stitch-a-long with my friend Sveina. We both fell in love with Hannah Lynn´s Punch of color girl 12. Here is how far I´ve got. I was really aiming to finished her eye but unfortunately I didn´t make it 😦 However her eyelashes are there 🙂

I also want to show you my jar of ort´s from 2016. I only started collecting my ort´s in May after we moved into our new house. Pretty good collection though for only 8 months 🙂

At last I want to wish everyone a happy new year 2017 🙂 Thank you all for visiting my blog and your comments. They mean a lot to me.
I will be having another giveaway in January so be sure to check in again 🙂

Two finishes

I have two finishes to show you and little gift I got from my secret Santa at work.

First of all I finished another Magic Doll design. I really love this cute dolls. I have to say though that the back stitch is a bit crazy and seem to take forever. But the outcome is all worth it.

And here she is without the back stitch. The back stitch really completes the piece.

I have another small finish. It´s Soda pattern piece I started a long time ago and I have been picking it up every now and then. It´s a set of 8 small houses and I finally finished the second house.

I have decided to give away some of my stash. So occasionally I will post Give away on my blog. It will be original patterns which I have already stitched and don´t need anymore or patterns/kits I know I won´t stitch and I´d rather give them a new home.

My first Give away will be tomorrow so be sure to check in again 🙂

Most of hair done

I finished most of her hair this weekend. I think she is turning out so nicely.

8100 Stitches done

I´m a little torn whether to keep going with her and start her face or rotate to something else for a while.

FOF 14 -one side done

I finished one side of her hair last night. I think it looks so pretty.  Now I will do the other side. Have to admit though I´m a little bored of all the browns. Can´t wait to do her face 😀

I got a little bit more done 🙂 I feel like her hair looks a bit dark compare to the artwork but we´ll see how it will turn out.

2015 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,800 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 30 trips to carry that many people.

Snowflake – Magic Dolls

I have a new finish! This one is by a Russian designer which I came across on Pinterest. I instantly fell in love with her Magic Dolls series. I already purchased 20 of them and I want 10 more 🙂 LOL

Here is the first one. Doesn´t she look super cute 🙂
