WIP Wednesday 03/04/2020

Hello everyone! Welcome to what I hope will be a weekly post about my craft projects. These days craft things are some of my favorite things. I can sew, crochet, and cross stitch. Below are the projects I’m currently working on.


Teaching myself to crochet via youtube was very easy. While I still have some problems with increased stitches on things such as scarves, I’ve gotten pretty handy with the magic loop. My local Joann’s had a sale on their books a few weeks ago, so I picked up one called Zoomigurumi 8.

I’m currently trying to stitch the adorable seal that’s on the cover! I choose a grey speckled yarn, hoping it’d make it look like a speckled pattern you see on some seals. I think the base color is too light for that, but we will see.

Currently it’s not much to look at right now, it’s pretty much just a big circle. But soon…hopefully…a cute seal!


Cross Stitch

I’ve had a couple cross stitch project that I’ve been working on for awhile now. The first one is the Dinosaur Pattern by PyroDogPins. My husband loves dinosaurs and Jurassic Park, so I started this as a present to him. The bad thing is I’m very unmotivated to finish it. I don’t know what’s wrong with me! All I have left is to finish the text and border, but I’m only working on it a few times a week. MI just really really like my other project so much more.

I should just buckle down and finish it.


My other cross stitch project is a massive one from Heaven and Earth Designs called Shimmer. Right now I’m still working on the background, and that’s all I’ll be doing for the foreseeable future. To give you an idea, I’m a little over 5% complete. But the bigger a project is, the longer is takes, and the less framing I have to do. So it’s all good!


Upcoming Projects

What do I have coming down the pipeline? Well I have some fabric being shipped to me so I can make a personal dice bag. I also have the materials for a granny square blanket, but I won’t pick that up until I finish my current crochet project.
