I went though my stash this morning I was looking for a piece of fabric to do a Fairy that was in the new issue of Cross Stitch Gold. I found a light piece of Rock-a-Bye in my stash that I think I'm going to use for this piece. Today is the day the Mirabilla SAL starts and I wanted to start either Mermaids of the Deep Blue or Rose of Sharon today but, the fabric didn't arrive yesterday...BUT.... I did find a piece of Sapphire Sky Lugana that I think will go perfectly for Mermaid of the Deep Blue so I'm going to use that instead and just put the other piece in my stash when it arrives. Unless someone is interested in it. Let me know if you are and we can work out a trade.
I also this morning went though all my WIP's and pieces that I have that I'd like to start this year. Here is my list of what I'd like to do this year. I know it's really over the top but, hey what fun is it if you can't dare to dream! :)
Mermaids of the Deep Blue
Celtic Autumn with Color Conversions
Rose of Sharon
Lady with the Blue Robe
A Celtic Challenge
the 2005 L*K Stamps and the Freebie that you got if you bought all of them.
I also have a ton of Margaret Sherry patterns and I'd like to get 5 of them done this year.
Oh yes and most important is Teddy in a Wagon. I did this a few years ago for a RR and the person in the RR dropped out of NEXStitchers and they won't answer my e-mails or letters about sending me back my RR so I'm affraid that is is gone forever. :( I feel so bad about this as the other 2 ladies who stitched on it worked so hard on their pieces.
To work on/finish
Girl with a Pearl Earring
Here is Me....
My Security Blanket
Itty bitty irish
Celtic Emerald Cross
St. Paddy's Day Kitty Moon
Map of Australia (for Paul)
William in the Window
Frederick the Literate (SAL with Mary)
Christmas Elf Fairy
Kittens and Mittens
Up, Up & Away
I'll post later today what I got a chance to work on today.
With me being so into music I think this is perfect for me. *grin* I got it from Zohrah's Blog.
Ok does anyone know how small 32 count fabirc is!?! (don't answer that I know you all do) I went to starts Mermaids of the Deep Blue today and I just couldn't see the holes in the fabirc so I didn't get very far. I used my stitching light but, that didn't help much. I think I got a magnifiying glass a few years ago from some cross stitching magazine. I'll have to see if I can find it and see if that helps.
Since I didn't work on Mermaids.... I picked up the other new piece I wanted to start. I just call it Fairy cause I don't know its proper name. I'll have to look in the magazine and see if it has one. I'm stitching this on 28 count Lugana Rock-a-Bye.
If I decide to stitch more tonight I think I'll work on the Christmas Elf Fairy and I'll post an updated scan of her in the morning. Unless I get back on later tonight.
Dougie! Dougie! Dougie!!!! Way to go to Doug Flutie today. He was put into the Patriots game and he kicked a field goal (for those who don't know he is the back-up quaterback). From the BC game to this. Doug if this is your last game it was a hell of a way to go out. I'll miss you so much!!!
