Cross Stitching Update

Life seems to always get in the way when I want to film. I will hopefully get around to filming my January book wrap up tomorrow before the Rental Inspection happens.
And a cross stitch update video later this week as well. 

First up I have two small finishes for the year.
The first is a stitchable notebook kit that came with Cross Stitcher magazine that had been sitting in my stash for a long time. I switched out the colours for Sea Dragon by Fiberlicious.
I stitched this with 3 strands for better coverage.

 Then we have this little Bernard Black - Black Books pattern from Plastic Little Covers on Etsy.
I ended up doing this one for the Mellisously Hopeless SAL
I had bought some red wine to stain the fabric with, but it dried grey.
I couldn't get the grey out, so I went over it with red dye,
It doesn't have the effect I wanted, but it's sort of red wine-ish.

So this one was a new start for January's Quote SAL. I haven't done much yet.
This one is being stitched with Fiberlicious hand dyed cottons.

And a new start for Feb, the Valentines SAL.
Also being stitched with hand dyed cotton from Fiberlicious.
This one is Poison Rose.
The fabric is from Stitches and Spice.

And we have the Frosted Pumpkin Storytime SAL.
The first frame is now finished, and I have yet to make a start on the second.
I regret not changing the frame colours to some of the hand dyed cottons I have.
Some of the Dinky Dyes ones are sort of pastel-y and would have looked nice.

This one is Almost Time by Victoria Frances charted by Tilton Crafts.
Not a lot happening here....

Mini Raven Kin by Selina Fenech, charted by Heaven and Earth Designs.
I've been working on this one a little today and am getting closer to a page finish.
It's only a half page granted, but hey, a page is a page :)

Also, Tom Hiddleston needle minder appreciation.
The amount of times I find myself looking at the needle minder and not stitching....

And here's my progress for the Mirabilia SAL
Again, not a whole lot going on here, but every stitch counts.

This is another project I've done some work on since taking photos, I'm almost finished the first square.
Still pretty far behind...

And last, but not least, Arthas!

I am thinking I might skip the Gloria and Pat SAL, and start a different project.
I received an Arthas chart for a shoutout on my blog/Youtube, which will also be coming in the next few days.
I want to start it. 
Like, now.
I need more Arthas in my life :p
