The Endless Dress

Yes, I'm back with more Cinderella. I've decided to make a serious push to finishing this before the end of the year (except that I think I'm still waiting for some beads from when I ordered them at my LNS back in May(?). Mediterranean Mermaid has beads in that order as well. Every time I say I'll never order from her again, and every time I do it in the hope that it'll be different this time.)

Eyeballing it, I'd say I'm about done a third of the dress.

Late Halloween

It was Friday the Thirteenth yesterday, so this is sort of acceptable.

I remembered to change the white when I was stitching the ghost, but I forgot to go back and stitch over the cobweb.

I did French Knots instead of using the buttons since this is over 1 on 25 ct and the buttons are way too big.

Now it's back to Cinderella since I'm hoping to finish her before the end of the year.

Also, I'm a bit more active on Instagram (since it's literally take a picture and post, as opposed to Blogger's take a picture, transfer it, edit, come up with a post etc). I'll still be posting here at least once a week, but more up-to-date pictures there. I'm therapy_by_thread there too.

So Close

I was hoping to have Boo Club finished by today, but I wasn't able to stitch as much as I'd hoped today. Tomorrow doesn't look good either. But the finish is close. I can almost taste it XD

October Achievements & November Goals

Goals for October:
1. Finish Boo Club for Halloween. No. I only got about 5 hours in.
2. Finish Cables and Columns, since I want to wear it this winter. Finished it off last night. It still needs to be washed and blocked and I'm not sure how to do that since I don't have anything suitable I could pin it on. Maybe I'll just wear it as is.

Unexpectedly This Month:
Not so much "unexpectedly" as much as "I forgot to put on the goals last month": Finish a Heart.

Goals for October:
1. Start and finish a Heart.
2. Finish Boo Club.

SFS & Smalls

Month: October
Spent: $10.77
Carryover: 70.41

Yet another DMC run. It would be easier to stitch to my budget if I didn't keep running out of thread. I have enough patterns and fabric to last for several years and not much desire to buy any new charts, but floss. I just keep running out.

This month's finish for the Smalls SAL is Heart of British Columbia, which I just squeaked in.

Setting Aside Boo Club

Real life has been kicking me in the face and I have so little time for crafting. I was hoping to finish both Boo Club and my scarf by the end of this month, but I don't think I'm going to be able to do both. And since it's already started to get cold I'm going to focus on the scarf.

Boo Club will join my regular Halloween tradition of being finished just after :)

This is what it looks like as I set it aside:

Almost Halfway

I'm almost done one ball of yarn on Cables and Columns, one more to go. I'm not sure it I'll use all of the second one. I'll probably just stop once I think it's long enoug.
