I finished sections 9 and 10 of the Passione Ricamo SAL#4. I am patiently waiting for step 11 to be released on March 9. Here is how I left my piece:
On the right is the purple mermaid tail! So excited for this one! I love the sparkly waves, too.
I have also put a few stitches into Fairy Dust.
And now I am working on Siren and the Shipwreck. She is really moving along.
She is looking a little ghostly without all of the details. I think once I finish her hair, I will be able to start the back stitching and beading. She has a lot of bling in her. Especially the chandelier. Can’t wait!! She has really been a fun, easy, relaxing stitch and I am loving stitching on her again. Which one of your stitch projects was or is a fun stitch for you?
I did it! I finally finished Autumn Snowman on January 19. Here he is:
I still have to turn him into a bellpull, but for now, the stitching is finished and I am one happy camper! The other night I picked up this which I had started in December for hubby. I had only put a couple of stitches in until this week:
It is Fairy Dust by Nimue and hubby loved it when he saw it in a Local needlework shop. I am stitching it on a Silkweaver Solo fabric, in 16ct Aida. It shouldn’t take me too long to stitch, but I am still keeping up with the PR SAL and section 8 arrived in my email box yesterday. I will show progress on that when I am finished stitching. Come back tomorrow to see all of my Birthday mail that arrived in the last few days. Lots of fun things!
My oldest son and his girlfriend came to visit last weekend, so we decided to spend Saturday in a little downtown area of Farmington Hills, MI. We visited lots of shops and contributed to each for Small Business Saturday. Of course I had to stop at the Rocking Horse Needlework shop and give a little love there, too 😉 Just love going to that shop and seeing all the beautiful stitchings on the wall, from floor to ceiling. I picked up a few things while I was ogling gorgeous finished pieces:
Nora Corbett’s 2 newest patterns, Geranium and Mermaid Verde and their bead packs. Hubby and I also found the little Fairy Dust piece finished and hanging on the wall and thought it was quite cute. So I picked it up to stitch for him. I have been wanting to stitch a Nimue pattern. It should be a cute, quick stitch and maybe I can get it done for him for Christmas. Now to dig into my fabric stash and find the perfect fabric for her. What are you stitching on today?
