Fairy cross-stitch and craft room

Wow, it’s been a while.  I don’t know what happened to the month of January, but apparently it is gone.  I thought I would share my progress on this cross-stitch with you.  It has taken me a while on the wings because it is Kreinik metallic thread, and that thread is such a pain to work with.  The results, however, are worth it in the end.  I love the way it sparkles and looks so delicate. 

On another topic, I thought I would share some pics of my craft room.  Since, we are about to list the house for sale (yes, it has taken this long), my craft room is super clean and pretty.  I repainted the walls a lovely shade of “Crushed Peony” from the Behr paint and primer in one line.  I love it, it is so soft and lovely.   You can also see my sewing table which I’ve covered with an old blue and white striped sheet.  My cat, Dulcina, wanted to be in the picture, too.  On the right is my shelving system that I just love.  It holds and hides a lot of stuff.

 On the right is my shelving system that I just love.  It holds and hides a lot of stuff.  In the cubbies are the cutest little jars of buttons that my mom and dad gave me for Christmas and also some neatly folded and tied pieces of the “martinique” jelly roll that were left over from making the tote last summer.  The drawers are full of fat quarters and other pieces of fabric.

Finally is my cutting table and some storage shelves.  The storage shelves hold more fabric, layer cakes, thread, batting, etc.  On my cutting table is that runner I started last month, that I need to finish.  You can also see the cute pink and green table runner that I finished last month.  Super cute.   Well, I hope you enjoyed your tour of my craft room.  Hugs to all, and warm, warm thoughts sent your way.  It is sooooo cold here.  Brrrrrrrr.

  1. Erica, your fairy cross stitch is coming along great. I know how hard that thread is to work with, but it sure has made the wings on the fairy stand out. She is beautiful. Wonderful job.

    I really like the way you did your craft room. It looks like a picture out of a decorating magazine. So organized and wonderful. Makes me jealous. I would love to have a craft room set up like that. You have a great working space. Enjoy while you can.

    Love
    Grandma
