Bent Creek's Summer Snapperland Complete!
As for my project, I pulled out the parts of Mario that I have started. I had completed both hands and the mustache. I had part of the hat, part of the head, and part of the body started. On Tuesday, I started working on Mario. I thought about taking it to bowling because last week at bowling, when I crocheted I bowled well (134) for me. When I was playing games on my cellphone, I did horribly (90). I didn't take him though, rather I crocheted squares for Michelle's afghan. I finished crocheting all of the pieces on Saturday and started putting Mario together. I lost the mustache and his hair. After I attached the newly crocheted mustache, I found the old one in the trash. How it got there I do not know. I still haven't found the hair.
So here is the almost finished version. I need to attach the eyes. But I need to buy some at Hobby Lobby. Look at him, he turned out cute! Tomorrow I will get some eyes for him, then completely finish him. I left him for Patrick at MawMaw's.
The next cross stitch project that I am going to work on is the Ink Circles Celtic Mystery Stitch-a-long from 2008- 2009. I really like this series, the bold and bright colors. The geometric shapes. It appeals to the mathematician in me. I don't know why it has taken me so long to finish it, but this year is the year. I will spend an hour each day working on this and the rest of the evening on the next project from the box. I hope to finish it soon. Here is a picture of what I have completed so far.
Once I finished Mario, I pulled out another project from the box. I am to complete the Holiday Stick-Ups. They are plastic canvas holiday characters. There are 8 characters: Love Bug, Leprechaun, Easter Duck, Easter Bunny, Witch, Turkey, Reindeer,& Santa. I have completed the Love Bug, Witch, and Turkey already. Today I have been cutting out the pieces for the rest of the characters while playing Wii U Mario with Theron and Skylander Swap Force with Leif. I hope to finish them this week (Week #4). These are fun to stitch since you only have to do half cross-stitches. To the left is a picture of one of the characters I have completed.
Well got to go. I need to go to play Skylander Swap Force with Leif. He is getting between me and the computer to talk. Thanks for stopping by.
