March Stitchalong on Feeling Stitchy, blogged here

Week 2 of the March Stitchalong - it's kind of a birthday stitchalong! :)

Continuation of the March Stitchalong for Feeling Stitchy

An embroidery blog I follow, Feeling Stitchy, usually has a monthly Stitch-Along project. I hardly ever remember to do it in time, ha, but this month I just had to! The pattern, this adorable little donkey pinata, was perfect! My father has been going on business trips to Mexico lately and has brought me back a Mexican woven blanket, a La Carina figurine, and a Dia de los Muertos box shrine thingie, so I've definitely been feelin' the Mexican-inspired design and color palette. So this little fellow fit right in!

 

Just to up the color factor, I chose a green fabric for the ground instead of plain white or cream, ha.

¡Feliz cumpleaños, Feeling Stitchy!

 

(Translation: Happy birthday!)

 

Pattern by Wild Olive.

Yup, Feeling Stitchy is turning 5! Mollie of Wild Olive created sweet patterns in honor of our birthday. :)

I shrunk down the original pattern but to give you an idea of how small it is I framed it in a 4 inch hoop

Can't decide if I should make a banner or not... Please visit my blog and let me know what you think... bobbypinbandit.blogspot.com/2012/03/wip-question.html

Soon it will be a pincushion, you can kind of get the idea from the felt and ric rac. I felt sort of bad that I would be sticking pins in the pinata, but then figured ill-treatment is sort of it's job description, lol.

I know the pattern had smiles on all the balloons but I thought a frown would be appropriate since he's stuck in the tree. :)

pinata stitched onto a tee for my little chick

I tried out using the embroidery transfer paper stuff and it stinks :(

most of it had rubbed off by the time I finished the horse so I ended up having to almost free hand most of what you see.

I'm thinking I'm just going to free hand the zig-zags too. Instead of pulling out a bunch of planned thread colors, I'm using up whatever floss strands I have in my little thread scraps tin.

I used the cute cake to made a banner to decorate my house in birthdays time!

My favourite of the set. A combination of a little more experience and colours which are a bit more 'me' than the bright ones in the other 3.

First attempt at a satin stitch

Here's the lay out of my planning for the Stitchalong ~ I made a colored version to mark where I wanted which colors and I think it turned out great!

This is my festive take on the March Stitchalong, which was so much fun to take part in! I am really proud of this cutie since it's the most satin stitch I've ever done.

Second in the FeelingStitchy March stitchalong set. Used two threads this time... who knows, I might even attempt a different stitch on the next set. (gasp!)

I stitched this on a sheet of card stock to make a birthday card for my Gram.

My first bash at a feelingstitchy stitchalong. Also the popping of my embroidery cherry as I have not done anything outside cross stitch before.

 

They're all a little wonky, but hopefully I'll have my technique down by the time I've done the 4th set :-p

First ever stitchalong (and first ever embroidery): complete :-D

 

I am now a little bit less intimidated by embroidery. And excited to see what next month's will be.

From my beginning color sketch out to in the hoop to finished stuffie, this stitchalong was an utter delight!
