Love the sparkles!!! Are you going to restitch on darker fabric at some point?

Hello Avengers is just adorable!

Only if I do the rest of the inner and outer scouts together on one piece in the future.

Prepping my newest project and had to sort out and return my all bobbins that were scattered amongst my recent project bags/boxes. I also wound 15/35 of the newest colors to bobbins and made some more space to put them at the beginning of my boxes. It might be awhile before I get the last 20 colors, but I'm mostly ready for them now.

*All tuckered out from a hard day of bothering Moirae as she bobbinated, sorted and reorganized her floss collection*

I actually made a box for this new start, check out the color palette. (40 colors; 21 blends)

I'd already finished the first 540 stitches, but hope to get some more on it this week now that I've got my threads together.

and just for the Sprite Stitch peeps, a peek at the pattern mockup.

Yay for crafting buddies! It can be hard work :P

That new project looks SO fun! Love watching it develop!

Re: Moirae's Misc Stitches (Stage Coach in the Woods - Finished 10/27/2018 )

My first Halloween stitching from this last week. It was a relatively quick stitch, but my first attempt was on fabric that had shrunk to 14x15 and so I restarted it. I salvaged the first attempt though, frogging a little and putting it in a 5" hoop. For all the details or WIP shots or more Nightmare Before Christmas socks, see my Instagram account (https://www.instagram.com/moiraestitches/).

I wound up using about 2 skeins of black between the two of them. It's kind of funny, but a lot of my recent patterns don't use black except for the all-black text We Do Geek piece. So, it's been awhile since I've used black. Egyptian Sampler doesn't have any, nor does Hairy Pawter or the Sailor Moon suits and, of course, my GoT banner was all red. Even the new Emerald Dragon only uses it for the backstitch.

Re: Moirae's Misc Stitches (WIPs - Hello Avengers, We Do Geek and Sew Cozy 11/27/2018 )

It's been a month since my last update here and I have lots of stitching to share. I have one new Harry Potter start that I'll show in my next post, but mostly I'm been stitching on my WIP pile.

Added a new line the We Do Geek piece - Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

I've mostly filled in Cat Thor and made his helmet extra spiffy with 3 colors instead of 1 and used the greys from the new 2017 DMC line. Also, the cloak clasps and his hammer are metallics. I only have the boots and the wings on the helmet to fill in after I do some more color picking/testing. I also started the outline for Hawkeye.

And we haven't seen this one in awhile, but here's some more on my Sewing Room (Sew Cozy).

... continued part 2
Egyptian Sampler is also back on my scroll frame and I am working on the top half for now... here's a section of the blackwork in the center panel that I've done.

and the new hieroglyphs below

I'll try to post in another 1-2 weeks with couple more WIPs I'm stitching on and my new HP piece.

The pictures won't be as big (higher resolution) as here, but, for more frequent updates, see my Instagram @moiraestitches

Wow! All of your WIPs are amazing. Lovely backstitching. Makes me want to work on some despite how much I dread it when finishing up a project. Cat Thor looks super!
