The temp here has finally dropped to where they should be. It's almost 10am and it's only 31 degrees. Burrrrrrr.....
Here is my updated scan of Christmas Elf Fairy. I worked on her Friday at lunch and on and off yesterday.
I felt the other day that I was so close to getting her done. Now I don't feel that way. I feel like there is so much left to do. I'll just keep plugging away on her and hopefully I'll have her done this week. The beading is now scaring me. I just have to dive into it once I get the stitching done and do it.
Annemarie I normally don't stitch Christmas pieces after Christmas, now I do find a difference between Christmas and Winter pieces and Winter pieces I will do all Winter time. I don't think of this as a Christmas piece and that is probably cause I've not done the tree yet. :) I want to finish this one for three reasons one is if they put out another one I want to have this one done so I can get the next one. I made a mistake when I started stitching her so I put her done for a few weeks cause I was so disgusted with myself. If I hadn't put her down I would have had her finished by now. The last reason is cause this kit was so expensive I just feel like with the money I spent on it I should get it done.
Kim I don't mind all the back stitching on Bun Warmer. I don't care for it in the fact that I have to count as I do it where when I do regular stitches I will do one half of a stitch for a section till I get the color done then I will go back and do the other half of the stitch. This way I don't need to count when I do the second half of the stitch and it goes quicker. But I like doing it since it's all there really is to the pattern I feel like the pattern is almost done almost from the start.
