Just One July SAL and a FINISH!!!!!!!!!!

I decided to take Preening Pixie with me on all my vacations this summer.  Being stuck in a car and on long plane rides gave me plenty of time to work on her mirror.   I even worked on her on the cruise ship.  I completed the left side of the mirror on my North Carolina trip.  The bottom right side was completed on the cruise, and when I got home.  I was determined to finish it!!!  

I think she turned out gorgeous on this fabric.  It is so much nicer than the navy aida that came with the kit!!!!



As I was going through my Bloglovin blog list I saw this one from Linda at Stitchin with my Furbabies.   She is a little crazy because she is on start 206 for this year!!!  That is right..206 starts this year!!!!  She mentioned that her friend Justine at Justine's Cross stitch  was doing a personal SAL of one project July...work on one project in July to see how much progress she could make on her stitching.  I thought this was a GREAT idea.   So I am going to spend the rest of July working on my HAED Faery Tales.  Since I only worked on Preening Pixie to begin with this month, I finished it!!  So I am going to make a dent on my HAED challenge page.  If you aren't on the HAED facebook page they do a quarterly challenge ot make you stitch in a new way.  This time around it is parking...which I my favorite way to stitch!

Congrats on the gorgeous finish Vickie. I'm so excited to see Faery Tales coming out to play. A man had stitched that and entered in our county fair a few years ago. It was stunning and huge. I think he said he stitched it on 25ct over 1. I came home and found the chart and drooled. I finally came to my senses as I only stitch on 14ct it would be way way to big. I will enjoy watching you work on. (I did find a jigsaw puzzle of the design but have not done it yet.)
