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.

A Small Finish

I finished stitching Cats and Pumpkins  by Erica Michaels and finished it into a box frame. Yes, I actually finished something completely. It is not sitting in a drawer somewhere. I took out the glass so I could take picture with out any reflections.

To show you how small this is I took a picture with a penny next to it. It is stitched on 40 ct. silk gauze.

Thanks for stopping by.

The Joker Ain't the Only Fool

Do you recognize that song line? I had it running through my head every time I worked on this. However, no more, because - dun dun dunnnnnnnnn - it is done!

The Queen of Hearts

I really enjoyed working on this one. I finished it up Saturday. Now I have to rotate to my Mirabilia.
