Here is an update of the garden I have been working on. I am triing to stick with this to get it done cause I got news the other day that I am going to be a GRANDMA. Needless to say there are alot of projects I can't stop thinking about doing. I ordered a baby afghan the other day so I can't wait for it to come in and the garden might get put on hold lol.
I haven't posted in a very long while but spent 6 months working on this fairy and managed to get it done for Xmas. I have been very busy working and getting ready for Xmas. I would like to wish all the stitching sisters and friends a Merry Christmas. I will be super busy now as I have 15 people for Xmas dinner and I have to finish my baking and getting ready. Hoping everyone has a wonderful feastive time.
I am sad to say I got absolutely no stitching done last week. I have been very busy painting a kitchen and redoing a bathroom. They both look great but I missed getting any stitching done. Maybe I can get to stitching this week.
Today I had a nice visit with my daughter in Toronto and glad to say everything will get back to normal. On my way home I decided to stop at The Enchanted Needle to get a couple of yards of material. Now what x-stitch store does not have a yard of white or antique white. This is about the 3rd time have have stopped there on my way home and needless it will be my last time I stop. The answer is always the same from the owner that she needs to order material. I guess I will have to go to the states lol.
It has been along time since I have made an entry in my blog but have been very busy with all kinds of summer stuff and a little bit of stitching. My fairy is now over half done and only two and a half pages left to do before Xmas.
After finishing Page 1 of the fairy I realized I had made a big mistake. The pencil I used as a graph was not soft lead and after many different attempts I decided to start the fairy over. I would not have been happy with the finished product and better to loose a month of work than to finish it and not like it. I started all over but this time I did page 2 and page 3 first for a change which is in the above picture. A lesson well learned and I won't make that mistake again and I am much happier with this so far.
