Welcome!

A place for family and friends to see what I'm up to. Visitors welcome here.

Hail Guest, we ask not what thou art.
If Friend, we greet thee, hand and heart.
If Stranger, such no longer be.
If Foe, our love will conquer thee.

Fairy Update



I don't know if I'll finish her before I run out of winter break or not (two more days). I can probably finish the wing tomorrow but don't know if I can finish her body on Sunday or not. Probably not 'cause work (shudder) starts again Monday and I do have a few chores to do around here (like laundry and maybe starting to take the Christmas decorations down).

Want a laugh? I did so much stitching yesterday that I woke up with a tiny little muscle sore in my upper arm and sore joints on both sides of my wrist (from twisting my hand funny around the q-snap). In the future on small pieces I'm going to have to leave lots of fabric around the design so that I can use a larger frame and avoid that funny crook of the wrist.

It's storming today. DH and I tucked in under warming lap robes (rather than heat the house we're trying these) for the evening. Fire crackling, audio books, stitching away...

This is the life I want to lead with a little time in the morning for the garden and a walk, some kind of daily housekeeping chores so the place doesn't fall apart and time for quilting and scrapbooking, too.

Sigh.

Amazing progress Debi. I am impressed.

Such a pity real life interferes in our crafts so much :grin:

Great progress on the fairy. I really like the combination of the colours and fabric. It gives it a very natural feel.

Great progress Debi ! What do you think of your colors ( the one from the chart) and the original picture? Is it a close match? From my computer, yours appears brown to me. Have you bought the special thread needed ? mohair?

By the way, may I ask who is Yumiko? It appears on my google reader then didn't appaer on your blog.
