Preening Pixie update

I was in a Disney mood this week so I pulled out my Preening Pixie design.  The first design is where I left off on it last November...

Here is my progress this week.  I know backstitching is important because it makes the design pop.  However, I don't like backstitching  I think this is one of the reason I lean towards HAEDs and Mystic stitch design.   They may be huge but NO back stitching!   I love how the curve of the mirror is appearing.

 I have been working on my  Wintery Heirloom on Fridays.  This design is beautiful but dear lord there is so much confetti stitching when I am working on the trees!!!!!   The design has lots of trees!!!  I just have to tell myself that with every stitch I am getting closer to being finished!

I realized I forgot to do a post last week and Last week Faery Tales was up in the rotation  It was a confetti week from HADES.  I am not lying!   Red Riding hood was nothing but confetti stitching!!!  I was ready to pull my hair out.   I keep telling myself this is going to be gorgeous when finished so I am suffering through the confetti.

Here is a weird confession from me and I hope I am not the only one who does this!  As you know i have 3 labradors weighing from 80 to 90 lbs. each.  They are big cuddlers. Gibbs has slept inbetween my husband and I since he learned to jump on the bed.  If there isn't room, he makes room.  Brigen likes to sleep at my feet and Tusk sleeps where ever he can find a spot.   Here lately, I haven't been sleeping well in bed.   I know it is because the dogs wake me up and have literally pushed me out of the bed!!!!   

I have found I sleep better on my couch!!!  If I sleep on the couch, there isn't room for anyone to sleep beside me.  I don't have to hear all the boys (hubby included) snoring and tossing/turning.   It is just me an sometimes Bert sleeping sound.   I have always wondered if I am the only one who finds sleeping on the couch relaxing.

That is my weird confession!!!
