Getting started.

Hey there welcome to my blog. I was inspired to set up a blog page showing my progress in all my cross stitches and other craft work by another blogger The Crafty Writer. It was so cool to watch her progress on all her projects especially when she completed them. So I know that it is actually possible to finish these projects.


I have currently 15 cross stitches in progress as I am an obsessive compulsive project starter. I won't even mention how many projects I have in my stash. I will just say that I need to live for another 300 years to complete every project I have bought.

Due to my condition I rarely finish anything I start. So this blog has been started up to try and assist my compulsiveness of starting and never finishing my craft works. If I force myself to record and keep to a rotation each week then I will be compelled to continue working on current cross stitches and not just keep buying and starting new ones. We will see how well this goes.

I have configured a rotation consisting of 6 weeks. Each week I will work on a cross stitch according to their size and designer. These are Heaven and Earth designs charts consisting of 4 pages or less, Large Heaven and Earth design chart, Scarlet Quince or Golden Kite chart, Other (which are kits or charts bought randomly from other designers), Heaven and Earth Design quick stitch and finally a chart from Mystic Stitch. This way I feel that I won't get bored of one project and find myself starting a new one. Hopefully this will cure me of my evil ways.

  1. Well Princess I love a woman with a plan....have just tried to upload pictures of my Golden Wood - one from this month and one from last month and Picassa somehow ate everything that was on the memory card....I am hoping it downloaded it before it screwed the card....have to download new version of Picassa and then with fingers crossed with have a look and see if it is still there. Will stop now as it is hard to type with fingers crossed.

  2. No pictures found on the card for Golden Wood and none on Picassa......F*c%king Hell. Have had to take another one.....only really done three quarters of the first page and maybe half of the second page....looks better in the picture than it does in real life....the colours have more differentation...and I can see the leaves in the tree tops better than when I look at it on the Aida.....Figure that if you can!! Had forgotten that I cannot post pictures from a comment. I will send you the picture via email lovie.

  4. Hi! I love your blog. and I think I'm going to borrow your plan, if I may do so. I'm a serial buyer of charts, magazines, and other cross stitchy things. And they are all fantastic and I want to do them all, but to do so, as you suggest, I have to become a vampire or a witch(do they live that long anyway?). If you find a way, tell me!

  5. Hey Anjoaa thanks for the lovely comment. Of course you can use my plan. This blog was inspired by another cross stitcher so I borrowed the idea from her. I love looking at peoples blogs so glad you are starting one up. I will def be one of your followers as we seem to be on the same wave length re needing to live forever to get our projects done! LOL Good luck with your blog and happy stitching!

  6. Thanks Princess. I will definitely enjoy your company. I love reading your blog, and Mrs D's. And just wait a little: because I've ordered A scarlett quince (it was a Hopper, my favorite, how could I resist) and I'm just waiting for the floss for a golden kite...! Well, I'm definitely a hopeless case!

  7. OMG Anjoaa we truly are kindred spirits. I have 3 Golden Kites and 2 Scarlte Quinces. I was intriugued by the use of the blending of colours so had to have a go. I will admit though that the GK's are overwhelming when you get them but I've decided not to worry about the destination and just enjoy the journey otherwise I would freak out. Can't wait to check out your blog and all your wips. Getting going stunner, I'm very impatient LOL!

Hello Stunner! Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I hope it made sense as I can rave on lunatic style when left unchecked. Any comment is appreciated and thank you for taking the time and brightening my day! xoxo
