Just HAD to do this quiz today - you see, it seemed so fitting as I am currently knee deep (at least) in stitching the wings on Fairy Flora - I hope to be able to scan the completed wings by the end of the weekend (but without the beading - I have to do that last because I am stitching her on scroll bars - most of you know what happens to beads when pulled taughtly in scroll bars, right....?).... So, I am "Too Sweet Fairy" - I like that! I am just not sure why the quiz creator figures these faeries are "dysfunctional".... I am a HUGE fan of Amy Brown's art work, so I am happy to decorate my blog a little bit today with one of her stunning faeries!!


Which Dysfunctional Faerie are You?

Got the office moved today - thanks to Dr. Krueger for having brought his hand truck and allowing me to use it - got everything down from sixth to fifth quite easily. Mike spent the time setting up my computer while I brought my boxes down. But now I still have to actually set the place up - right now we just put the boxes in there... that was enough for today! I feel so cramped in that office, though Mike disagrees and thinks it's nice... I will get pictures up fairly soon. I guess I am just still upset about how and why this all came about with the landlord (who still has not said one word to either Dr. Krueger or me....odd, isn't it??).

I got some stash in today - that was nice to come home to, of course! Queen of Freedom, Thy Love Thy Soil and a diverse collection of Mill Hill Treasures for various Mirabilia patterns all came in today - And, I purchased a fat quarter of 32 ct hand-dyed Raspberry Jobelan by Wichelt on ebay today - the color grabbed me and the price was low....I am sure I can use this for something :-) I also bought Crystal Christmas from the trustworthy ebay seller today - oddly, I have been collecting supplies for this pattern, including one of the MH Treasures that came in today, but now I cannot find my chart. I bet I sold it on ebay a couple of years ago - LOL. But, now I have one coming in so I can stitch it!

I was really pleased that all of the embellishment packs I listed on ebay last week sold last night! That was really cool. I think I will dig around in my stash again later and see what else I have "outgrown" and can sell off - you know, to buy "newer, cooler" stash with the money!!

Speaking of ebay, there is an amazing auction up right now for Mirabilia's Petal Fairy stitched over one on hand-dyed lugana - the seller is 44mamaw. I do not know her and am not advertising this, but want to give her credit so I can show the pic - I think it is amazing!I wonder what she did about the blended colors. In one of her closeup shots I saw that the beads were cramped together, but still..... what credit she deserves for stitching this over one! And she is selling it??? It would be in a place of honor in my home, that is for sure!

Well, I was a bit disappointed in Ryan Newman's ninth place qualifying start for tomorrow's race - Auto Club 500 Lineup - but he will recover from that during the race - just got a bit loose and lost some duct tape or something that led to a little controversy for a bit during qualifying - at least amongst the announcers - well, the Alltel Dodge team is ever ready to give folks "something" to talk about! And, congratulations to Mark Martin for winning the Busch Series Stater Bros. 300 today - I was really pulling for him, as I would love to see Mark win as many races as he can in this his final year in NASCAR:(Photo from www.nascar.com)

Stitched on today: Fairy Flora, (wings, wings, wings - lots of fun with blending filament today - LOL)

I had a look at that lady's Petal Fairy on ebay and agree with you - it looks amazing. How can she bring herself to sell it?? Although I notice in the US there's a lot of completed cross stitch up for sale - I don't think there's so much call for it in the UK. I'm a bit of an ebay bargain hunter so am always hanging around there for stitching goodies, haven't sold too much grown out of stash, although I guess sooner or later I will have to!
