Well nearly at the bottom of stitching on "Fairies At The Bottom of My Garden". Lots and lots of colour changes, lots of metallics and loads of beads, though at the moment I am leaving the beads well alone. I started by putting them on as I went along but I still have not got my large Q-Snap frame from Lekker - over two months now (arghhhhhhhhhhhh) and with a smaller frame its difficult to try avoiding them. I really enjoy stitching this one though as its such a fun design and though I have stuck to the colours suggested for the main things like leaves and flowers I am having great fun with choosing colours for the fairies.
Next in the rota is Hardanger House but first I really must do some on my Heirloom Christmas, what with hospital and then last weekend we had Oscar so I have two weekends to catch up on. Not sure that I will get that much done anyway as we really must get sorted out with what we want to pack etc this weekend.
Talking of holiday and stitching I had fully intended to take Ink Circles with me but it is really rather big to just get out and stitch on a coach or plane so I have decided that the new ones Jasmine and Amber are coming with me. They are only about
7 x 10 at the most so a much easier size to deal with. I have sorted out the fabric (aida was supplied and I hate aida) and I now have to sort out my conversion charts as the threads supplied are anchor and I really much prefer DMC. I do wish they had been available as just charts, is it only me that ends up re kitting kits lol?????
