Tuesday January 26, 2010

Last week was a long week with not much stitching time. Hubby had to go out of town & had an awful experience while he was out & ended up coming home early. I didn't really get back into my usually stitching groove until Sunday. I did get some progress done on my weekend & Monday projects but Stargazer didn't get much attention. I have to get 7 more hours into her this week to meet my monthly goals.
Here is Stargazer:
I got more done on here ribbons but not much.
Winter Fairy Spirit:


I got a good 4 hours in on her Sunday, a lot more than I thought. I know have 16 hours done so far.

Trick or Treat Fairy:


All that is left on the bottom is the spiderwebs & the back stitching on the legs. Then hopefully I'll have the beads to finish the bottom of the chart. I ordered them through my lns 2 months ago. They are on back order from Mill Hill so I'll have to check some ons(s) & hope one of them still has them.

Laura at PR just released a pic of her newest chart that's going to be released next week. She is gorgeous!

Our tax return is supposed to be deposited here in the next 2 weeks. As soon as it comes in I'm going to order her & Sabrina! It can't get here soon enough.
I think I'm going to dye my own fabric for her. Like this piece I dyed:


Once the piece dried completely it was much softer than it looks here. I just need to figure out where I can go to order a piece of white 28ct linen that's big enough for her.

Hope everyone has a good week this week.

Hi,

While surfing on the internet I came across your blog and I have to say I enjoyed watching all of your wonderful stitching. I'm addicted to cross stitching myself. It is so nice to see eachother's projects.
I became a follower, so I can come back again.

Greetings from Belgium,
