After a nice weekend camping (kind of) I'm back home & cleaning house. (Yeah! Lucky me.) I did get a bit more time in on Luna Fairy. Now I'm trying to get my black cat for the RR finished so I can get rid of it! Stitching on 40 count is really annoying! It just seems to go on & on. Right now I'm waiting for my banana bread to finish cooking. Anyhow here's my update on Luna.

Martina is releasing a new design in September & wow! it is stunning! "A Fairy Flower Garden" & I can't wait until it's released! I can't even find words to describe it!

I am so excited for this! I started a new forum on yuku: one of the things on there is a sal for this design. I think I have the fabric picked out as well! Lori just released a new color Blue Yonder!

Wow! What a day today! With so much interest all across the boards on Chatelaine's new chart, A Fairy Flower Garden, (gorgeous!) I decided to start a Yuku forum for SAL's! I would love to have a lot of different sal's going & xs discussions! I am so excited about it! Please stop by & take a look around & tell me what you think!

I got some more work done on Luna Fairy! Here she is after another week. 12 days, 21 hours! I am thinking about outlining the back of the moon in a darker gray to help it stand out more. What do you guys think?

I hope everyone had a very enjoyable Mother's Day! On Friday Hubby & I took Little Paul to Star Trek! As I big Trekker I enjoyed the movie very much, wasn't to sure about the whole premises of the movie though. Grandpa Dave took Maria to see Hana Montana. Both of them enjoyed it as well.

Saturday was another baseball game. The kids' didn't seem like they wanted to be there though. None of them wanted to swing until they already had 2 strikes. Mother's Day was nice. I got a lot of handmade items from the kids! Aren't those some of the best gifts to get? Hubby got me a beautiful leather riding vest. I'll have to have him take a picture of me wearing it so I can post a picture.

Got some good stitching time in over the weekend. Finished the dress on Luna Fairy! Now I need to decide if I stitch the legs & feet next or move onto the moon. I think I'm going to do that order: finish the legs so the bottom is all finish, then start on the moon & work my way up the pattern. Well, here she is:

A lot of new stuff top post. I downloaded some pictures of the new house. if you want to check them out.

Hubby got a motorcycle. He is so excited about it. Been working on it all the time! Rode it to our game on Tuesday. The kids loved it!

Started Gill's Luna Fairy on Wednesday. It's coming along really quick. Here she is after 5.5 hours.

Everyone enjoy your weekend & have a Happy Mother's Day!

It's been awhile, hasn't it? I was not feeling well last week. Spring is awful when your allergic to grass! It's hard to stay awake when you can't breathe. Oh well. Feeling better this week, not as stuffy but still pretty tired. I finished my frog for the open theme rr.
Now back to my seasonal cat I need to finish for Claire. I pulled out the UFO RR, which is by TW, & I'm just not feeling it. All that's left is the border & there are so many blends & the colors jump so much it's just hard to get into.
I put some hours into my FFF for a competition on the EF board. I didn't get as many hoiurs in as I wanted. I think the girls are coming along nicely. I can't wait until my rr's are done so I can get back to my patterns!
I'm getting the supplies I need for a free chart from Gill ( from the Mira board I'm on). She just started releasing her own patterns! I want to get them but will have to wait until I have more stuff done & the money for it. Check out her website: Dark Side of the Moon!
