This week I spent time on my Preening Pixie design...I have finished the detail work on the left side of the mirror and now working on the mirror itself.
UFO Stitching update: I have 3 HAEDS that are UFO"s. The oldest is Faery tales that was started in 2007, Winter piece - 2009 and Hot Air Balloon is 2013
Faery tales update!!! I can't believe I haven't posted this but I finished page 20 of Faery Tales!!!!! I have exactly 20 pages to go!!!
Close up of page 20
Hot Air Balloon Santa: This quarters HAED Challenge was to stitch an entire page cross country. Which means you start one color...stitch all of that one color on the page. Once that color is done move to the next color stitch all that color. I took the challenge head on and I learned one thing..I DO NOT like cross country stitching!!!! I couldn't handle leaving all the spaces...I wanted to fill them in!!! But I finished the 2nd page on my Hot Air Balloon Santa
A Wintery Heirloom: This is supposed to be my Friday night stitching piece but I have been very bad these past few Fridays I wanted to finish my challenge piece and I was just loving my Tinkerbell piece that I have avoided it!!!!
As you cans see...I don't have much stitched on it. The trees are coming in nicely. Trees are the reason this piece became a UFO. They cause so much confetti stitching that it drives me a little nuts
My mom and I went to Little Rock this weekend to see Disney on Ice- Frozen. We had a wonderful time!! We stopped off at Stitchers Garden in Conway for me to play in a cross stitch store. I had way too much fun!!!
I bought myself 3 Mirabillas, fabric for one and a Lavender and Lace. They had the fabric for the Lavender and Lace in stock however I really did not like it!!!!! It was just too much!!!! The chart is called Evangeline and it is for the Katrina Victims.
Not to make you jealous but I did get this Passione Ricamo Christmas design for 1/2 of 1/2!!!!!
I found some fabric on Picture this Plus that I think will work better.... This is called Haunted. I think it is would pop. The decision is to I get it with sparkles or without?????
I found this one - Ella- Princess and the Frog design which drew my eye. I looked in the fabric section and found this Picture this Plus Joblean - called Baroque fabric. I thought...hmmm...pulled up the pattern viewer to see what it looked like....
This is what it showed:
I just knew this had to be my fabric!!!!!! Doesn't it just pop!!!!!
I have a lot more new stash......I have been very, very bad these past two months. I have been stress shopping! I admit it...Work has been so crazy that I have shopped. Here is a few of my new charts
There are alot more that I have bought...but I will save those for another post...
Nenidesigns from Etsy had a huge sale. Buy 10 charts for $10. I am not sure how you feel about Etsy charts but I like them. I probably will never stitch them but they make me happy...
