Day of the Dead Skulls!

So, these exist.

I’ve been looking for some good Day of the Dead skull patterns for a while and have just found these guys on Etsy from a seller called CrossStitchSusie

The patterns are £4.50 each and I will be 100% buying them once I’ve finished my Pretty Little Paris Pattern. I’ll probably use white thread to fill in the black space in the skull so it looks more solid.

Notre Dame. Notre Done. Athankyou

Little update…
Had a super busy Easter weekend but managed to find a little time to get some more of Notre Dame done. LOVING the colours!

The beginning of Paris.
I think a trip to Paris is needed. Purely for research purposes, of course…

Eye Eye!
Almost finished the London Eye this weekend!
Going to have to start thinking about ordering the threads for the Paris pattern soon. I’ll have this one finished in no time!

Buckingham Palace. Done. The Shard. Done
Stitching this piece is making me realise how little of the tourist stuff I have done in London. 100% need to organise a trip up The Shard after this!

Thanks, Rain
Here’s my latest pic of the London piece. The awful weather we’ve been having resulted in the train lines flooding and me not being able to make it into work. I ended up watching repeats of Friends and working on this for eight solid hours. Best. Day. Ever.

London - WIP
So the patterns, threads and aida arrived in record time and I was able to get started straight away. Here’s my first progress photo for the London pattern. Only a a few days in and I’m already really enjoying this project

London, New York, Paris

It’s been a while since I posted on here. Running out of thread put a temporary stop to the cupcake piece and my motivation slowed down significantly. BUT. I’m back! I’ve just discovered these pretty designs from Satsuma Street and am desperate to get stitching again! 

Thread Nightmare.
I’ve run out of thread. I have 3 more cupcakes to go and I’ve run out of thread. I’m going to carry on a do as much as possible and then some serious thread stock taking and ordering willl have to happen. 
Anyway…. I’m pretty happy with how this is lookng and cannot wait to see it finished (even if it will be a little later than I had hoped)

So it’s probably about time for another cupcake update….
One more to go on this bottom line then it’s onto the rest of the stand and the final three cupcakes! I’m still very worried about running out of thread! When I look at how much I have left to stitch compared to my dwindling collection of thread…..this could get interesting
