Upside Down WIP & a Pin

Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!

So, last night I decided I NEEDED to make a pin. I needed to, people, really. NEEDED to. I was up way past my bedtime working on it.

It's imperfect, wonky, and oh-so-wonderful. :)

(Cross stitch pattern by Country Cottage Needleworks; Embroidery pattern by Wild Olive.)

This cute little crab was stitched on some printed fabric I found in the bargain bin, stuffed with a little Fiberfil, and attached to some sparkly black felt with embroidery floss. (I think the felt looks like a peanut butter cup wrapper. Yum.)

That's all for now. I know it's not much but I really wanted to share it with you. I'll be back soon with pics of the kawaii stitchy piece I mentioned last time. Until then...

Happy Stitching!

Thanks, everyone! :):)

Natalie, this is Crescent Colors floss. It's soooo yummy! I usually get it from 123stitch.com

Did you finish the bayside bungalows cross stitch?

Kristi said...

Sadly, no, I haven't finished it. It is funny you ask this now, because I was JUST looking at the WIP in the closet and thinking I should finish it! :)
