A finish and a start to share with you all today. Both are from Mill Hill’s little kits that are on perforated paper.
I’ve been asked before why I do these simple little kits and like them so much. It’s a good question and so I will revist it. I LOVE these little guys because they are a quick (2-3 night at most) activity to get a quick finish. They are super cute, colorful, and have lots of fun beads. With about a 50/50 split between stitches and beads I find them to be quite satisfying in terms of look (when finished) and journey to the finish. Also, I do not have many projects with beads and would hate to start losing my technique with them so I like doing the bead parts the most.
The other big reason I love these is they are easy. Sometimes when I’m not feeling good, really tired or just not in the mood for any of WIPs then these little kits always satisfy without taking up all my brain strength.
This is Witches Hat all done up except for cutting out and backing:
And this is the start of Caterpillar:
I’ve been trying to work on Dragons every couple of days. As it’s just filling in the white, cream and light yellow areas it’s fast but easily boring so I tend to do a little of it and then switch to something else for the rest of the night. It’s working so far and I’m about 2/3 of the way done the page already!
Amazing, so far I’ve not spent anything which is good news for Stitch From Stash. I’m going to try and get through the whole month. Should be able to as I still have items I ordered coming to me in the mail. I find that getting them in the mail is as exciting as having placed the order. So it’s like two days of buying but only paying once. LOL!
