Like the title said, I was bored and when I am really really bored, then I am doing stuff.
This time, I made the covers of the little boxes and the glass and the Sherlock-cushion.

It happened like Sherlock and his cranes in Series three. "it just happened"
btw! When someone has a pretty silhouette of Gatiss/Mycroft I would love to get it to make my own Gatiss Cushion to have both brothers.

It was the first time since I was about 12 when I was doing something like the Sherlock on the cushion.
So, I know it is not perfect and more spontaneous and a completely botch in sewing. The fabric is from my Sherlock coat. I thought this would be fit the best.
The covers of the boxes are made mostly with nail-polish.
I usually do not wear nail-polish on my nail. Mostly, I use it to do stuff like this. xD

As every year when I go to the UK for my annual holiday I splurge and get a whole load of cross stitching magazines at normal shop prices instead of over inflated import prices here in the Netherlands. Oddly enough I rather object at paying 12.50 euro's for a magazine that costs 4.99 pounds which at the current conversion rate is about 7 euro's and import costs (transport/import duties) never add up to the remaining 5.5 euro's (since the 4.99 already had the shop profit/tax included in it) - enough technical stuff, time for the important bits.

This lovely bird with aperture card was a freebie from The World of Cross stitching issue 218 - it was a surprise extra freebie hidden behind the Vintage florals pattern book and the little kit with Aida, thread and tags that were in an envelope (I used one of the pieces of Aida from the flower kit to make my British bulldog).

The pattern is based on Madeleine Floyd watercolour.

Stitches: 27 x 37
Size: 2 x 2 3/8" square / 8.9 cm
Fabric: 14ct white Aida
Colours: 8

A third bookmark, designed and embroidered by myself. The bold colours were inspired by a trip to a medieval castle and the colours they used in their decor. My scanner unfortunately does not like scanning embroidery but I made it the best quality I could.

Day 119 update.

Posting this early as I'm currently in the process of packing for the holiday.

Spent as much time as I could on this this week. Kinda been steady due to some issues that are currently ongoing. But this is being taken with me on holiday so maybe some time on the beach with it will be perfect :) (come on British weather, don't let it rain lol).

But, as you can see, Boss is very nearly complete. Just the last part of his shoulder to finish off. Kaz has now been started on so by the time I come back there'll be double picture updates :)

If it isn't completed in the next two weeks then it will be very close I'm sure :)

See everyone in 2 weeks time :)

After several months of work, I finished this piece of art.  I used STOIK Stitch Creator 4 to make the pattern and it required 50 different colors, all DMC brand.
