Why Yes

I finished this off this weekend. It's all ready for Halloween. The fabric is a little washed out in the picture, but it is different shades of orange. I bought the cauldron at Michael's. It was on sale for half price so I got it for $2.00.

Now, back to stitching on Raven Queen.

A Quickie

It only took three days to stitch this cute CCN design. It is Fa La La. I needed something small and quick to do after finishing At the Met.

Now, what to work on next?

 I have finished At the Met by Mirabilia. She is stitched on 32 ct. PTP Storm. My DH looked at her and announced that she looks just like Phyrne Fisher from the Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries so I am going to call her Phryne.

Her whole sash is edged with beads

The edge of the dress is all beaded

So remember I said in my last post there is a crap load of beads? Just check out the pictures. They do not even show all the beads. So glad to be done with her. 

I was going to start Raven Queen but I think I need a break from the big stuff and need to do a little piece instead.

Why Do I Do This To Myself?

I'm now putting on the beads for At the Met. I love Mirabilia designs, but I cringe when I start doing the beading. That's when I ask myself why do I do this to myself???? I know it will turn out beautiful, it just that it's a crap load of beads!

This is just her headdress. Wait until I get to the skirt of her dress. I may run amuck.

Thanks for stopping by.

Another Finish

I just finished this Little House Needleworks pattern. If you buy the two Classic Colorworks you get the pattern for free. It is called "Sweet Rose".

It is stitched on 36 ct. Lakeside Vintage Meadow Rue. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it is very overcast right now so that is as good as I'm going to get.

Thanks for stopping by.

It's Done

I finished The Joan Elliott SAL Faces. I think my favorite is the last one - the dragon. They are all so colorful.

So, my rotation plan went by the wayside. I guess I just want to stitch on whatever calls me. Now, what to work on now that I finished this?

Thanks for stopping by.

Honest, I Have Been Stitching

It's 93 degrees outside! So I'm staying inside. I finally finished the stitching on the corner square of the Faces SAL by Joan Elliott. I only have the beading to do but I'm doing all of those last. One more square to do and it will all be done. So, here is the picture of the bottom corner.

All the skin tones are stitched over 1.

Stay cool and thanks for stopping by.
