I was so excited this week because I thought I was going to be starting a new project - Preening Pixie. However, it didn't happen like I thought. I did start it...but HATED the fabric I picked for it. It made me miserable to stitch on so I stopped. I had picked a 32 count linen and I hate linen. I have no idea why I thought this would be a good idea...so I decided to dye my own fabric for this piece. I got some teal rit dye along with what I thought was dark blue. However, it was actually a dark green. This is what I came up with and started stitching on it...I don't like it!!!! so this piece it put away until I find just the right fabric!!!!!!
This is what the design will look like when finished so I think the fabric should be some type of dark blue. What so you think?
So I pulled out my Lavender and Lace Santa of the Forest. I kept working on Santa's beard. This beard is very detailed!!!!! I am changing this up a bit by using gold beads for his staff. I think that will really make it pop!!!!
This will be the final product.
My brother knows I have been trying to get back in shape and lose about 30 lbs. He ask me to join him in this 5k obstacle mud run. I am getting out of my comfort zone and agreed!!!! I think I am insane but on May 23, 2015 I will be voluntarily running in the mud!!!!
