Poking Along


Just poking along with Halloween Fairy tonight. I am so used to my Ott-Lite now, that when I don't have it I can really feel the difference. My eyes feel a little strained, working with browns and greys on dark brown linen... she is worth it, though ;-) And some good news for me today. I got the notice that my bulbs have been shipped. I hope they arrive soon.

Beau... not as impressed as I was to see two Americans take gold and silver in gymnastics tonight.

Stitched on today: Stitched on Halloween Fairy **Mailed Shelley's Halloween Round Robin to Edgar today

The older I get, the more dependent I become on my stitching lamps (not to mention the magnifiers!) You are making great progress on all your projects - it is amazing how much you always seem to get done! And it's nice to see Beau is doing well!

I have an OTT light and it is next to my stitching area but I never remember to turn it on. Seems like I get shadows on my fabric or chart when I use it.
Your progress looks great.

Wow she is looking fantastic already Carol! You're stitching her up so quickly.

It looks like Beau might be dreaming of Gold ...he looks so comfy.
I love to use my Ott light as well. I travel with it to my stitching get together and I have a stand up one by mt chair at home.
The fairy is stunning.
Ann of Knowledge and Needles is kitting up the threads for her and has ordered the specialty beads and things..Now thats enabling when your LNS does this for us. She knows there are about 6 of us that want to stitch her. So what can I say! Shes the best! It will be all ready to buy! I have the chart so any day soon!

Your exchanges are beautiful!

I have a stitching light too, not an OTT, but it's awesome. I too, can tell a HUGE difference when I don't have one!! Beau, he's so cute!!

Wow, girl you sure got some lovely gifts for your birthday. It was my pleasure to stitch a little something for you. I love your Halloween Witch - those colors just punch it up nicely. And your Halloween fairy is lovely.

She's looking lovely, but I'll bet the coloring is difficult without your light. Hopefully the bulb will get there quickly. Cute picture of Beau, hopefully all the furbabies are doing well.

Beau is really cute! I got the magazine with the Halloween Fairy just last week and am planning to order some nice fabric for it. I hope I have time to stitch her this autumn.
