Tonight was Earth Angel night.... I did a bit more of the white in her wings, and even did a little near her body to begin to work on the inner shape of the wings... then bopped over to do some more of the greenery so I would not be lulled away by the white - which really has not been as bad as I had envisoned it would be :-) I will put up some closeup scans next time - she is so much prettier than she looks in these large wip photos.
The October 2005 issue of Just Cross Stitch arrived today - and finally! One of my favorite designers is being showcased!! Jeannette Douglas! Look at this wonderful Autumn Stitches project that is in this issue. I adore it! Of course, it calls for pricey silks that are a bit tough to find around - Gloriana Silks, NPI Silks, Soie D'Alger, Bijoux Metallic Thread and the By Jupiter! charm... but I am determined to do this someday...soon! If anyone else plans to stitch this, would you be interested in sharing fibers??
I got in the large Silkweaver solo I bought last week, and it is gorgeous! And, I had forgotten, but last night I was high bidder for Beware of Cat on ebay. I generally stitch a Halloween design every October... maybe I will do this one this year... if I can even fit a Halloween design in this year...
New DVD Release Tuesday! Double the fun this week! Mike got Sin City and I got The Wedding Date :-)
Red Sox 10, Tigers 7...
Stitched on today: 17th Century Irish Garden at the office, and Earth Angel
Oh, some sad news for avid stitchers who love hand dyed fabrics - if you get their Solos update, you saw this - but their primary dyeing lady fell very ill yesterday and had surgery today. Sure hope she will be OK!!!!!!
