Hello my blogging friends. Last night I finished the letter “O” in my Joy piece and she turned out quite cute 🙂
I wish I could capture the true color of the fabric, but I am just not able to. I just love the little peppermint buttons. They really make it feel Christmasy 🙂
So now I am on to the Y which I put a few stitches in last night.
This photo probably shows the Sage fabric in how looks in person. More green than the gray in the above photos. Some day, I will get some sun and hopefully take some better photos. In case you are just tuning in to this project, I am stitching Nora Corbett’s Fariy Letters on 16ct Aida Sage from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie and I am using a conversion from The Rocking Horse. So what are you stitching these days?
Today is my birthday, so I am heading out to treat myself to a Tim Horton’s Cappuccino, which I used to drink everyday, but quit on December 7. I had one yesterday and have only had one other since. But since today is my special day, I am going to treat myself. Have a fabulous day and go stitch something!
I finished this sweet little fairy last night. I just love how she turned out. And she was a pretty quick stitch, too. Taking me only 11 days to complete. She is Nora Corbett’s Fairy letter J and I used the conversion from The Rocking Horse. Stitched on 16ct Aida Sage from Hand Dyed Fabrics By Stephanie.
This morning, I found this on my porch.
I had posted on my facebook page earlier in the week that I wanted seashells instead of snowflakes. And some sweet person actually brought me seashells and just made my day. So thank you to the sweet fairy who left me seashells. I just love them ❤ My heart is so filled with joy from such kindness.
Hello blogging friends. Just a quick post to update my progress on the letter “J”. I finished the cross stitching last night and have moved onto the back stitching. As you can see, she fits perfectly in my 11 x 11 Qsnaps, so that gives you an idea of the size. And so far she has been a pretty quick stitch. Warning: There are lots of fractionals in the fairy. I think her arms and legs are made up of entirely 1/4 and 3/4 stitches. But even on aida, it wasn’t difficult. Just a re-cap-She is one of Nora Corbett’s Fairy Letters and I am stitching her on 16ct Aida Sage from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.
Today is cleaning house day, so my break is done and I have to get back to it. I hope that you are doing something fun, like stitching 🙂 What are you stitching on today?
Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were wonderful and that your New Year has started off with a bang! I didn’t go out anywhere. I stayed home and hung out with hubby and played Indoor Corn Hole! Yep, got it for Christmas. I just love that game. Ever since playing it at the zoo two summers ago during Summer Zoomance. It is quite expensive to get a nice set, so we haven’t bought one yet. But hubby found an indoor one and bought it for me for Christmas. For those of you who don’t know what corn hole is, it is basically like horse shoes, but you throw a beanbag into a slanted piece of wood with a hole in the middle.
It’s pretty fun. If you like horse shoes, you would like this. So that is what we did New Year’s Eve, while waiting for the ball to drop. At midnight, I kissed my hubby, toasted the new year and started a new cross stitch project.
This one is going to be Nora’s Fairy Alphabet – letter “J”. I will also be doing “O” and “Y”.
While these letters look pretty, I will be doing a conversion from a local cross stitch shop and it will look like this:
I fell in love with this piece a few years ago and purchased everything I needed to complete. When I was going to start it a month or so ago, I realized the fabric was 28 ct and I really didn’t want to work on 28 ct so soon after mermaid 😉 So I looked everywhere for a green I wanted and settled on the 16ct Aida Simply Sage from Hand Dyed Farbics by Stephanie. The color is actually a little brighter green than my photo. I just couldn’t capture the true color. If you are interested in the conversion of these letters, you can find it here.
That’s it for me. It’s cold and I am going to go and stitch for a bit, under a warm blanket 🙂 I hope the new year is a wonderful one for all of us. Did you start a new project to bring in the New Year?
