WIP Wednesday: Progress & a Finished Project!

By Kerry

I recently stitched a gift for my cousin (it was the sneak peek from this post). Now that she’s received it, I can share it on the blog!

Here’s a close up – I’m super stoked with how she turned out:

The pattern is a freebie from Andrea Zuill’s blog. If you are not familiar with Andrea’s work, definitely check her out. She has an Etsy shop under the name Badbird, but it is closed at the moment while she works on a book!

From that crafting triumph, to my current battle…I had to pull out all the stitching from one of Dolly’s pupils and totally re-do it, but she’s not looking as crosse-eyed as she was last week:

I’m hoping to get her finished up this week, since I seriously need to get started on my holiday crafting. Wish me luck!

That mermaid is super cute!


Lovely mermaid! So cute, and I love the quilted background. Also, yay for no cross-eyed Dolly!


I love the way you did the mermaid background! Very oceanesque. Nice work. :)
