Happy Saturday! I don’t have much to share this week since I just shared all my progress last month. I have already cross stitched more this month than I did last month and I’ve been enjoying that. Today I thought I would share a few more charts that I’ve purchased and also my StitchMaynia plans.
*These all come from Etsy.
I don’t think I have shared any of these before but these are all the seed packets I have purchased from Stitching With the Housewives. I was originally planning on finishing them all as seed packets but I don’t know how I would display them all together so I think I will just take some inspiration from the way Priscilla shows them finished. These are a part of their tiered tray tidbits series but I think they would look cute in a few different places in my house. I also bought one more Housewife charts since their designs fit my style so well.
StitchMaynia can be done in a multitude of ways but the way that I’ve decided to do it is to have a new start for everyday in May. Which is a lot considering it’s one of the longest months of the year! But since I’m new to cross stitch and there are SO MANY THINGS I want to stitch I figured I might as well start them so I can continue to work on them on and off until they are done. The biggest issue I’m having is that I need to narrow down all the things I want to start to a list of 31. I have found a ton of patterns that I want to use as Christmas gifts (which I’m not going to be sharing until after Christmas because I’m not sure who I know that actually reads my blog and I don’t want to spoil anything) so those will for sure be a part of the 31. Although I think I will be doing Jolly July and that’s when I will start working on Christmas presents both knitting and cross stitching. I’m also thinking that I will start my Christmas shopping and planning then because Christmas is my husband’s busiest time of the year at work and since I can’t do as much as I used to it would be awesome to just be able to focus on activities with my boys when the holidays roll around.
