Ballerina update

I cannot believe that the first day of school is tomorrow! Summer was just way too short this year! I was in back to school meetings all week. I think my room is ready but if not they will live. I did work on ballerina this week. I was able to put in 2,580 stitches and have completed 21.5% of the design. I have lots of backstitching to work on in this section once I get the regular stitching completed.
I am supposed to take my fair piece to the fairgrounds tomorrow but not sure if I am going to this year. I hate the way they judge and to be honest I am tired of seeing who they pick as the winners. So, Cinderella may or may not go to the fair depends on how I am feeling tomorrow.

Ballerina is coming along beautifully! I can't believe she's not even 1/4 done!

I'm curious about your frame on Ballerina. Is it a Q-frame? Is the red fabric to protect something? I use the wooden scroll frames, but the fabric always gets a little dirty where I hold on to it. I've wondered about making some sort of fabric cover to protect it, but haven't figured anything out yet.

Ballerina looks good, Vickie.

I know what you mean about the fair judging. I stopped doing it years ago because I couldn't find rhyme or reason to it.

School officially starts today for me.

Oh, I truly hope you take her to the fair. It's not about how the judges judge her, but that people can look at and enjoy her. You may make a convert who wants to make such beautiful things. You never know!! I hope this school year goes well for you. Your project looks great. I'm really loving this piece, but I absolutely am NOT gonna buy another chart.

This is such an amazing piece! And you are such an amazingly FAST stitcher! I hope you decide to take Cinderella to the fair, but understand why you might be losing interest, too.
