This is my progress on my Pink Princess. Otherwise known as Dawn, The Fairy of Grace by Passione Ricamo. It was really hard to put her down. I love the colors and the fabric is so awesome. It’s16ct Aida Tintagel by Stephanie. I love it so much I ordered more of it for a future project. But I received sections 13 and 14 for the Mermaid SAL#4 and I don’t want to get behind. So I have been working on mermaid tail this week. Not much to show today, but I will give an update next week.
I also received the fabric and thread kit for my very first Chatelaine Design this week. It’s all for Flower Fairy Garden.
This package was everything everyone said it would be-Beautiful, like a Christmas present, perfectly wrapped. It really is all in the presentation. I didn’t want to open it. I did eventually open it to double check that everything was there. And I had to fondle all the silk threads. It’s going to be so wonderful stitching with them. It also includes Delica beads that late faceted so they will be very sparkly. The fabric is 28ct Cashel. Not sure how that is going to work out, but because of the many specialty stitches in this design, Aida just won’t work. I am very tempted to start it, but I am at least trying to wait until after my surgery next week. I am thinking about trying out some Q-snaps with this project. I am having my gallbladder removed, so resting my scroll frames on my stomach will not be comfortable for a while. So this will be the perfect project and time to try out Q-snaps. I don’t have a picture of the finished product on my Surface, so I will have to add that in my next post along with an update of the Mystery Mermaid.
So what do you use to hold your fabric, Q-snaps. Scroll fames, hoop
