Finished RR is back home with me!

Hi.  I have been a bit out of the blogging world.  Hubby has been in the hospital for a week.  He ended up having his gallbladder removed and I brought him home from the hospital today.  So not much stitching for me this week.  But I did receive my Round Robin back last weekend and want to share it with you.

Finished RR

It is so beautiful and sparkly.  All of the gals did such a beautiful job on their blocks.  Not sure when I will be able to get this framed.  I’d love to do it now, but I’m afraid I may have to wait until after the holidays. It’s so beautiful that it needs to be hanging on a wall where I can admire it everyday.  This was my first RR and I met some wonderful stitching friends and had a great time.  Can’t wait until the next one.
Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.

Fairy Progress and New Nails

Not much in the way of stitching, but I thought I would share my progress on August Fairy:

She has an upper body and some arms now.  I’m working on the upper wings and pretty soon she will have a face.  I am getting excited to get this finished and start the beading.  My goal is to get her done in 10 days so that I can get her to the framer.  I am hoping to meet that goal.

This morning I went to LaBella Salon  and had a quick polish change.  I think I have found my new favorite polish combination.  Here is what it looks like:

It’s OPI Black Onyx with a silver glitter called Disco Ball by Creative Nails (I think).  This will be great for all of the upcoming holidays.  LOVE IT! Thanks to Nikie and to the gal ahead of me who was flashing the same colors.

Thanks for stopping by.


My Progress on August Fairy

It’s been about a month since I last posted about August Fairy.  I’ve worked on her quite a bit and I am happy she is coming along.  I have a few other projects that I am dying to start, but I want to keep plugging away on this one.  My hope is to get her finished and framed in time to give to my Mom for Christmas.  Her birthday is in August and I think she will love this one.  So here she is so far:

I am finally getting to some other colors besides black.  She sure has a lot of black in her dress, but it is striking and love it.  It doesn’t really look like much on the computer screen, but I think I have stitched quite a bit.  I have been wandering over to a mirabilia site on Facebook and can those gals and guys stitch fast!  I wish I could have more time to stitch or stitch faster, but I am enjoying the stitching.  I just have so many projects whirling around in my head and a couple all ready to start.  But I am getting closer to that finishing point.  I like to stitch my ladies and fairies from the middle down and then the middle up.  That way when I get to the top, I can see my beautiful lady pretty much finished except for the beading.  I always do my beading last.  So, soon my lady will have a head and she will really come to life.  How do you like to stitch your ladies, or people in general? Thank you for stopping by to see what I have been up to.
