Fairies At The Bottom Of My Garden

I have been stitching on Fairies for the last couple of days, on and off. More off than on to be honest as I have been trying to limit both my stitching and computer time until I find out what is causing these headaches. I am moving away from my rota for a short while as I have a gift to stitch for a friends birthday at the end of the month and also I have my picture to stitch for AnnT's RR this month. There is also this months section of Heirloom Christmas to stitch, and at the rate I am stitching at the moment I shall be happy if I get these three things completed.

I rather fell off the stitching wagon last week as Lekker Threads were offering a 25% discount on all orders over 10.00 until the end of May. I just couldnt resist the chance of expanding my collection of Dinky-Dyes Silks. I also ordered a chart, I know I have hundreds already lol, but I have an excuse (do I really need one). The chart I ordered is by A Mon Ami Pierre and is called Le Temps Qui Passe. It is for a start a Quaker design and I have been wanting to have a go at one of these for ages. Also I chose this particular one as it can also be made into a needlecase, which is something else I really would like to have a go at in the future.

On the home front we had a new front door fitted on Friday morning. Although most of the morning was brilliant it started to pour just as the fitter was finishing up so I maybe did not take as much notice as I should have done when I went to check it out. It wasnt till Keith came in and said he thought they had used 2 different types of glass that I went and had another look. No the glass was the same in both panes, lol however the silly man had put one in with the patterned glass on the inside (plain on the outside) and the other the opposit way round. On the bright side we had all the wallpaper stripped off, skirting boards and ceiling painted before the door was fitted so yesterday and today we have been getting the new wall paper on and now the furniture is back in place and my hall looks lovely and clean again. Next week hopefully someone will be coming to change the glass round the right way in the door and we are having new Garage Doors fitted next Friday. lol We have been in this house 38 years you would think by now we would be finished with needing things done but its a bit like the Forth Road bridge, when you get to the end you seem to be back at the beginning starting again.

On that note I will say goodnight, and thanks once again to all the wonderful people who both visit and leave comments in my blog.

Your Fairies are just beautiful! I love this piece :)
