WBP Update

Here is another Update of WBP, this is a days work, am working on her in a week long SAL, we started on Friday and we finish on the 7th September, so I shall be working my socks off to try and get her close to being finished. I will show a full pic once she is finished.

I may have to buy some more threads but that is ok with me lol. I am loving the way, she is stitching up.

I ordered the new Passione Ricamo design called Fairy of Dreams - The Guardian, she is stunning and I can't wait to get her. I am going to order some fabric from Enchanted Fabrics for her too, so watch this space for a pic and floss toss.

Another HD

Here is the next finish. This is called Holiday Hammered, I stitched this piece for a competition on Facebook. We had to stitch a Dolly Mamas kit and here is what I chose to do.

I got this kit from my friend Jackie who lives down the road from me and, it was nice and quick to stitch up. It will be going back to her in the next couple of days.

This weekend is SAL weekend so I shall be back to Winter Beauty Princess, can't wait. I sure have missed stitching on her over the last week, with being on holiday.
We got back from Crieff hydro at about 11pm last night, after stopping at my Aunts for tea on the way down, we are all shattered, but looking forward to going out for a meal tonight.

Winter Beauty Princess Update

Here is another update on the lovely WBP, she is stitching up lovely. I worked on her hand this morning and will be tackling more of her real soon, I just have a round robin to finish first.

Yesterday I ended up frogging all the beads because when they were on there with cross stitches they looked straight but some of the bigger beads didn't sit right, so I set myself up to undo all the beads and rebead them with half stitches and they look sooooo much better lol. The pink ones were added late last night.

I noticed when I looked at the chart that there is no way she will be finished in time for going away, but I can try and get as much as I can done on her before we go to Scotland next Wednesday.

New Start with a WIP

This chart is Rachel Anderson's Diamond Birthstone Fairy. I bought this chart when Michele from HAED had her birthday sale. There are 6 of them at the moment and I sure hope the other 4 will be released one day, as I just love them all, dunno where I will put them all when they are done, maybe they will come out for the month they for lol.

I really enjoyed stitching on her yesterday and today, as you can see I am working from the bottom up, and started with page 37. There are 42 pages and page 37 to 42 are only small sections, talk about chickening out of the big pages lol. I will be starting them shortly I guess lol. I have started the next page (38).

I am working on her in the mornings and afternoons until about 3pm or 4pm, then I am going back to Winter Beauty Princess for the rest of the day, she is coming on well and should be finished in a couple of weeks, if I can keep up on her. She is stitching up so beautifully, that I can't seem to put her down at the moment.

So I guess my plan is until these 2 that I am working on are finished, everything else goes away. The next piece once WBP is done will be to get Dad's Wolves out and finished. I know that Diamond will take some time as she is gonna be big, she will be 16 inches wide x 24 inches high, so she will def take a while for me, but I am gonna work on her as much as I can.

I will not be taking either of them with me on holiday, I'll only take small things so I shall be taking Tulip and SK Rose on Fire when we go away on the 19th August to Crieff Hydro again. The boys love that place so why change things whilst they still enjoy going there.

There is another birthday sale on the HAED site (until 8th Aug) as it is Bob's birthday (Micheles DH), so I guess I may be treating myself to a couple more lol. Oh dear these cahrts are lovely and I do sooo love them very much.

Thanks for all your comments from the previous WIPs, watch out on Friday for another WBP wip, she will be stitched on now and maybe for the day tomorrow, I shall see what screams at me the most in the morning lol.

3 WIP's to show you

The first Wip is an update of Winter Beauty Princess, which I have soooo enjoyed stitching on over this last week, as it was SAL weekend whilst I was away I couldn't uploads pics, so here she is. Am gonna put her away til the next SAL session now.

This next one is a Freebie SAL on the HAED board called Rose on Fire, here is how far I have gotten on her so far, she has been put away for a week too as I have Autumn Watergarden to work on as we speak.

This last one is called Tulip, it will go with my Calla Lily that I stitched and finished last yr whilst I was in Scotland. I am hoping to take this one with me to finish is Scotland this yr and hopefully start Day Lily or Iris once its done. Not sure what else to take I normally take summat small and large, maybe Winter Beauty Princess as it will be SAL weekend whilst I am there I think lol.

Thanks for look and thanks for all your previous comments too, they really are appreciated.
