Some recent projects and my favorite WIP!

Hi !

Firstly I just want to say that I am truly humbled by the lovely comments I have received on this blog :) It means SO much to me that you take the time to read about me and my cross stitch projects!

Secondly , at the moment my head is full of ideas of how I want this blog to be but it'll take some time to organize it all so I hope you can be patient with me ...:)

Right now I'm mostly working on a couple of secret cross stitch projects that I can't blogg about yet, but I thought I'd show you a few other things I have been cross stitching lately. I've recently been a bit more brave when it comes to cross stitching even though it is a very scary process for me to venture past 14-count aida  haha ! One of the things I did was to decorate an iphone case with cross stitch . I found a perfect chart in Cross Stitcher and after a few adjustments of the colours my finished case looked like this :

It was much easier to stitch than I though. The pre-made holes were easy to pierce and it was very easy to fasten the threads too. In fact I loved the whole process so much that I wouldn't mind doing another one if I had the chance one day!
I also stitched this wooden keyring which was a freebie from an old Cross Stitcher magazine.
This was also a very fun and rewarding project and I have the perfect bag to attach it too as well! Luckily I also have a similar heartshaped wooden keyring to do! I actually feel like I'm beginning to gain some confidence in my stitching skills and beginning to test myself when it comes to different cross stitch project . Reading all the wonderful blogs out there and seing what other people stitch really helps too!
Except for my secret projects I do have a favorite WIP which have had to take a backseat the last couple of weeks . It is this gorgeous dog designed by Jayne Netley Mayhew and it is published in Cross Stitch Collection issue 224!
 If you take a quick peek at at the header of my Swedish blog http://varanlillavra.blogspot.se/ , you can see why I love this project sooo much . You see , this little chap looks very much like two of my own dogs ! Which obviously meant I HAD to stitch him eventually . . . I can't wait to get back to him at the end of April !

Now I have to get back to documenting all my stitching on this blog . I'm really looking forward to having all my current cross stitch projects and my must-dos photographed and recorded so I can see them all with only a couple of clicks on the keyboard!!

Happy Stitching !



Reading your lovely comments truly makes my day, so thank you!
