Petal Fairy is back...
Tonight I figured it was time to work on Petal Fairy again. I think that switching my big projects off every night is really working out well for me - I certainly am not getting bored with any of them, and they are all making great progress. So, I guess I somehow figured out the secret that works best for me. I am really pleased with how this fairy is coming along. The colors are so intensely vibrant, and the wings are so delicate. I am glad I selected this very neutral lugana solo from Silkweaver for this fairy. It really compliments the bright floss colors. So, tonight she got a bit of her petal skirt, some of the flower stem and a bit more of her sparkly wings :-)
I agreed to another (smaller) SAL tonight. My friend Karen asked me tonight if I would like to do Peacock Cypher by Just Nan along with her. Since I am moving along quickly on the project I am doing at work, I guess I can start bringing this one to work soon. After all, I did set a goal for 2005 to stitch any one of Just Nan's projects, so this will help me to meet that goal! I went over to Laurel's Stitchery tonight and ordered the embellishment pack - I realized I only have the chart for this one :-) For the life of me, though, I cannot tell by the photo what this project says! The cypher befuddles me :-) Maybe when I look at it closer and get into it I will figure it out?? Does anyone know what this sampler says??
I have added a subscription link to my sidebar here in my blog if anyone is interested in joining the fiberswappers group that I started up over the weekend. Some chatter of trades is already beginning, and hopefully, if you are reading this blog, you will want to join us in the fun??!! We would love to have any serious stitcher join us!
Stitched on today: Green Old Gardens at work, and Petal Fairy :-)
