Yet Another WIP!

I always like to stock up on craft supplies in August before I go back to school. My LYS has an amazing summer sale every year and I usually hit up the craft store that’s in the same shopping center. I come home with a decent stash of loot that I put away and then I go back to whatever I was already working on.


Erm… That didn’t work so well this year. I have three garments on the needles and I told myself I’d finish at least one before I started a new project, but the allure of the yacht chart in Stitch! by Cath Kidston won out.

It’s pretty quick to work, especially now that I’m using a cross stitch needle instead of the embroidery needle I used for my last cross stitch project. I’m about half way through the chart. I was thinking of adding some lyrics from “I’m On A Boat” to the top and bottom because it’s such a small project, but now I’m not sure about that. It’s looking a lot nicer than I thought it would and that is quite a bit of extra work for some laughs. I haven’t entirely decided.






  1. I think it would be rather funny.

    Do another for lulz. I’M ON A BOAT AND


    TBH good pressie for mom if you put it on a scarf.

      Mom has been singing that nonstop since I started, but it’s all mine! Maybe I’ll make her a boat themed scarf for Christmas?

  3. Oh that is pretty. Can’t wait to see it finished.

    I’m glad that the needle change is helping.

      It helps a lot! Thanks for the tip.

  4. Very pretty. I’m trying to think what kind of needle I use when I cross stitch. I have two on the go and come to think of it, one might be an embroidery needle, =( opps! Can’t wait to see it finished. x

  5. It’s fun to indulge in the new shiny project. I started two last night (one sewing, one knitting).

  6. To be honest, I saw those sails and started singing “I’m on a boat”. That was a few hours ago. I haven’t stopped yet.
