Stitching went pretty well last week. I did the beading on Stargazer to finish the section I was working on. Now to decide if I'm going to go to the left & finish the top section on her dress or if I'm going to work down on the rest of the front section.

Last weekend was the PR sal. My goal was to get 5 hours done on her & I got 6 done. I filled in the tree limb that she was sitting on. Next month I go back to the dress.

Monday was EF's ToT Fairy sal. I finished all the beading on the bottom half of the chart! Next week I start on page1.

On a personal note, I'm asking everyone for your prayers. My great aunt has come down with pneumonia. Today she was moved from the hospital to the local Hospice. Thanks everyone.

Wednesday February 10, 2010

Sorry for being late with my post this week. I have been dealing with some SAD. Hopefully things will get back on track here soon. I didn't stitch much on Stargazer last week because of everything going on. I only got 4 hours completed so far. A long way to go still to finish 20 hours on her this month.
Just need to finish the light part of her dress then I can do the beading. After that I can move onto another section of the chart.

On Monday I did all the red beading on the bottom of ToT Fairy. I did get the rest of the beads ordered from a different shop & I'm hoping they'll be here by Monday so I can finish the bottom section of the chart. If they're not I'll skip this Mondays sal (& give the other ladies a change to catch up). I want to finish the bottom section before I roll it up & start on the top half.

That's about all for now. Tomorrow I'm helping Maria's class with their Valentine's Party. The kids don't have school Friday so I might be able to get some more stitching in then usual. Saturday is going to be very busy as Paul has his first basketball game. Maria is spending the night at her friends house (for her friends bday) & the rest of us are going to my sister's house for my nephew's birthday & my BIL graduation party. Hubby & I are hoping that Paul can stay the night with them (MY nephew & them get along really well) & that we could go out later that night. Kids don't go back to school until Tuesday so we have a nice long 4 day weekend coming up.

I didn't get much stitching in last week. I strained my bicep muscle & could only stitch about an hour a day. I missed my goal on Stargazer by 2 hours. I think I did a good job & came pretty close to the 20 hours, especially since I took time to finish 2 Hearts. I'm going to stick to the 20 hour goal for February. Here she is:

Yesterday was the Trick or Treat Fairy sal on EF. I worked on the spider webs. My goal for the day was to start & finish the spider webs. I finished all of them but it was a huge pain in the a** to do. I had a really hard time reading the chart for it & ended up just winging the last ones. Next week I want to do the beading so I can roll it up to the top half.
On the personal side Hubby to the kids & my nephew to Peek N Peak on Sunday. Everybody had a blast. My nephew was a natural. Of course Hubby is really sore right now. Maria finished her Valentine's Box & I think it looks awesome! She did such a great job on it! ((I hot glued the flower ribbon on but she did the rest.)
