Last WIP for Baby Record and Miscellaneous

First of all, allow me to apologize for the crappy pictures. I have a digital camera, but it's pretty old, and the flash makes everything look worse. That, and apparently we don't have any AA batteries around the apartment. So, I have to take pictures with the camera on my phone. Doesn't do too bad, but the lighting in my apartment is aweful. The pictures today were taken next to an open window using sunlight. Also, some of them have been in storage for years, so they have all kinds of wrinkles which made awful shadows and the like. But, ah well. Make lemonaide out of lemons, I suppose....

On the baby record, the only things I have left to do are the French Knots (which I loathe), and the name and weight. That won't get done until the baby is born, of course, but I know what the options are so I can kind of prep.

Almost there!

Also, I thought I would share with you some of the other works I've worked on in the past as well as their status. The first one is the first major cross stitch project I ever worked on. It's Kit #79019 "Wizard" by Dimensions. There are some things I could go back and change (i.e. his crazy eye) but I don't want to. I don't want to do it, no because I'm lazy (though there's that too) but because since this was my first major project, I kinda want to keep all those little mistakes around, to remind me of where I started.


Next up is one of my geisha girls which I'm almost done with. It's kit #65036 "Geisha Beauty" by Dimensions.  I'm missing a few threads, and then I'll be all done with her. Most of the detail work is done, just have to do some of the sky, I think. I was very happy at the way she turned out. When it's all done and framed, it's going up in my bedroom. We have an Asian kind of theme going on.

Geisha Beauty

This is the second Geisha I did. It's kit #06760 "Mai", also from Dimensions. I believe that all that needs to be done on this one is some detail work. Again, once all is said and done, this one will also go up in the bedroom. Isn't she pretty?


Last, but not least, is my first attempt at stamped cross stitching. Up until I started this project, I had only done counted cross stitch on Aida fabric. I wondered what the difference was with stamped cross stitch, so I bought a beginners kit to find out. Personally, I like counted cross stitch on Aida better, simply 'cause my stitches look so much better and more even. But, here is how it's looking. It's okay. Kind of homey, but I like that. Don't remember what kit number or the name. I'll try to find out sometime later. :)

Home is Where the Heart is
Also, I have a picture of my super secret. But it's only part of it. Can't give the whole thing away, now can I? ;)

Now who is that?

Well, that does it for me. Hope you enjoyed that splurge of pictures. :)
