I have a terrible cold and don’t feel like doing much. So I have been huddled on the couch, under a nice warm blanket, stitching as much as I can. This is my progress on my Journey Into the Deep. My mermaid is coming to life! I am almost finished with section 4. In my previous post, I forgot to mention my fabric details. I am stitching this on a hand dyed fabric by Silkweaver. It is Pixie Dust in 28ct Lugana. It is full of pastel pinks, blues, yellow and greens. Very pretty. Well, I am off to stitch. What are you stitching on today?
Over the weekend I finished the little bird in the cherry blossoms on the left side of my Round Robin.
Isn’t he just the sweetest? I had a heck of a time trying to get a good photo. Even in today’s beautiful sunlight, so I apologize for the bad photo. I wasn’t going to stitch the right side as I have been dying to start Mirabilia’s Siren and the Shipwreck, but seeing a friend’s RR piece has inspired me to continue. So I have started on the little birdie on the right side and will post when I am finished. This piece has to be mailed out on the 22nd, so I hope to get it done. I want to add a title, but that may have to wait until its return.
I also have to share my last 2 fabric of the months from Stephanie. The first is April Showers, of course, April’s FOTM:
This is so beautiful in person. I just love the pinks and turquoise in this one. The one that I received on Saturday for May’s FOTM is Pollywog Princess:
This one is loaded with purples and greens. Very cool. Both fabrics are 16 ct Aida. One of these days I am actually going to stitch on one of these beauties. For now, I am collecting 🙂
I have also started my next pidge scarf using the bamboo yarn and I have to tell you I LOVE, LOVE knitting with that yarn! So soft and silky. I will post a pic as soon as I get a little more done. Thank you for visiting today to see what I have been up to.
I’m about half way through beading Emerald Mermaid. She is looking awesome!
I should be finished with her this week. She really has a lot of beads on her. But the more beads, the more sparkle 🙂 When I finish her, it will be time to start my Asian design for the Joan Eliott Round Robin. I received my fabric from Stephanie on Saturday. It was a long time trying to get what I wanted. Stephanie worked really hard to make me happy. Here is what she came up with:
It is 28 ct Jobelan Mocha Delight. There isn’t a lot of color variations in the fabric but the color is really going to make my Geisha girls pop as well as the cherry blossoms I intend to put on my layout. I will post a picture when I get it stitched and ready to go. Thank you Stephanie for taking the time to make me happy 🙂
