It came right down to bedtime (practically), but I finished Miracle Butterfly tonight. She is so sparkly!! She was a bit of work, especially that long white gown, but she was worth it. This finished work is so gorgeous compared to the computer generated image on the chart :-) I watched a lot of NASCAR and Red Sox while stitching this one primarily on Sundays -LOL!! The official stitching dates were 3/24/05-9/12/05, stitching her in my rotation.
I got a couple of UK magazines today - this World of Cross Stitching Issue 102, and Cross Stitch Collection Issue 122 (didn't find a photo of it yet)... and the mailman was mighty good to me today. I got in an order that contains beads for a project that is a mystery to me - I need to scan my blog again to see what I ordered beads for - good thing I post such details here for myself! It also contains the Kreiniks for Woodland Fairie, a pair of scissors I ordered to bring to work, and the new Mermaids of the Deep Blue chart. In other packages I received the beads for that same chart. And, some backordered silks for Heirloom Homecoming Sampler... the silk pack for Love Letter Lessons... the Silkweaver Solo lugana that did turn out to be perfect for Olde World Map.... and the stunning Midnight Sparkle opalescent belfast from Sugar Maple Fabrics! I think that is everything... kinda tired, not sure :-) I need to find time tomorrow to really look at all of this!!
Had a neat ebay "win" today (is it really winning when you have to pay?? - LOL!) - OK, I am definitely tired! I got a fat half of Atlantis 28 ct Jubilee by Sugar Maple Fabrics :-)
