Wow! Where did October go? I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted. Time is flying! So I have things to share. First, hubby went to the framer over the weekend and picked up this:
Mirabilia’s Raven Queen. Isn’t she a beauty? I had the frame picked out for months and it is even more perfect for her than I imagined! I LOVE this piece immensely! She is stitched on 16ct Aida Twixt N Tween from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.
A closer picture of her and the awesome frame:
And remember the piece I was stitching for a friend, so I couldn’t show it? Well hubby also picked it up from the framer and here it is:
Yeah, my friend is a Trekkie and I finally got this stitched up for her. It is actually stitched on a blue 14ct opal fabric. Here is a better picture of the fabric:
My friend was actually at my house on Saturday for a card class when hubby came home with it, so I was able to give it to her right away. She loves it and was planning on taking it to work today to show all of her Trekkie friends and then I am sure she will find the perfect place to hang it at her house.
I also finished this, but haven’t put it in for framing yet.
She is a cutie. I can’t wait to get her framed. So now I am working on the Passione Ricamo’s A Journey Into the Deep. I would love to finish this one before starting a new Pixie. Here is how I left the mermaid last night:
I know you can’t tell from this picture, but this is a pretty big piece. I am almost finished the tail, and then I have another fish to do to the right of the tail and another further up then I can move up to her sweet face and all that hair. And she does have a million beads, too, so she will be nice and sparkly! I am stitching her on 28ct Lugana Pixie Dust from Silkweaver.
I also did something new. I knitted an infinity scarf on size 50 needles. Size 50!! Boy was that a little awkward.
The yarn is Red Heart Boutique Twilight in color Metallic. It is soft and will be nice and warm on the very cold days that they are predicting we will have this winter.
I have also been making Christmas cards. One for every day in October. Here is today’s card:
If you want to see the prior 23 cards, you can view them on my business facebook page at Ginny’s Place, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. Leave a comment so I know you visited and let me know what you think of the cards.
Well, now I am all up to date with what has been happening with me the last month. What have you been working on?
