Now that Petal Fairy is finished, I want to get back into a rotation again. So, tonight I picked up Earth Angel at long last... I am starting to realize how much I missed many of my projects! I finished all of the shading on her wings, and I added six or seven more rows of the white filling at the top section of her wing.... then branched off to work on some of the greenery at the bottom of her dress. I will likely do the wings that way until they are done.... a bunch of white, and then some time with other colors to break the monotony :-) Right now, it looks like I have about 100 years of stitching with white ahead of me!!
While cleaning out some things in the basement in order to make room for the new construction project, Mike found a basket in one of the boxes. He had no idea what to do with it, so he put it, empty, on the coffee table in our living room. I waited a few days to see who the first "taker" would be - and tonight the prize goes to Lily! She stayed in it for quite a while, but she didn't ever really look comfortable in the basket!! My bet was on Lily to be the first :-)
I got in an order from an ebay seller today that contained some of the silk I need for Heirloom Homecoming, as well as some WDW, GAST and MH beads I need for various other projects.... and from other sellers I also received Sleeping Beauty and House on Acorn Hill... where to start with all these goodies!!
I ordered a large piece of Sugar Maple Fabrics' color of the month, Forget Me Knots Grove, 28 ct lugana. It is a 27" x 36" cut.... I have plans for it :-) Pretty color!! Oh... and I got this cute Toni Goffe chart, Basket Case, which seems terribly appropriate today :-) I actually bought it before Lily climbed in the basket - LOL!
