OK, this is what I did all afternoon... all evening... and late into the night... stitching the butterflies! Got them done, though! But, this is only about half of Part 3. I am not sure what day I will be picking this up again, but there is still a bit left to do. As I had suspected, I was pretty tired of the butterflies by the time I got to the eighth one! The NASCAR Awards Banquet on TV kept me company, though, as I finished these up (typical long banquet... every driver has to get on stage and thank all of his sponsors...LOL!).
Some fun stash came in today :-) I ordered a lovely mermaid chart, La Sirene, from a French seller on ebay (whom I have gotten to know), and she sent me La Fee Des Chats II for free. I think these are gorgeous, and the charts look to be really well done! I also got in L&L's The Wedding chart. Mike recently saw this when he was with me at Colonial Needleworks, and he really liked it. If I can ever fit it in, I will stitch it someday with our wedding info on it for him! And... Heaven Lee Creations' FOTM has finally started back up again!! Yay! It has been months. Yes, they can be a little difficult to work with - very slow to return emails, slow to get your fabric... but I stick with them because their fabric is just too high of a quality to ignore! Oh, how I loved the Dragon Myst lugana from them that I used for Legends of the Dragons! This month's installment is called Mummy's Delight. I am not typically one to ever know what to do with a dark purple fabric, but this one has grey in it - similar to how Dragon Myst blended into darker/greyish areas. I can think of many charts that will be gorgeous on this fabric :-) Perhaps one of my charts from White Willow Stitching.... hmmm...
Well, now it is late... but I must remember to say - Happy Birthday Mom!!!!!!
Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala
***Has anyone seen The Engagement Ring, a TV movie on TNT, starring Patricia Heaton? I recorded it on DVR a few days ago, and Mike and I watched it today. Wow, I think it was really well done - very impressed - great story :-)
