It is Earth Angel night for me. I think I got quite a bit of the blues in her gown done tonight - really starting to progress now, very exciting!
I stayed up quite late last night due to the Red Sox game having that three hour rain delay. I stuck with the entire game, ending at 1 AM (they won, Red Sox 4, Cardinals 0... great job David Wells!!). I stitched the whole time, so here is the updated photo of how Legends of the Dragons ended up last night - I got a whole lot more done on Majesty. He kind of looks a lot like a purple zebra right now! LOL!
I had fun today - I went to World in Stitches in Littleton, MA to check out their new shop...it's nice and large, and so much brighter than their old shop, but their very messy, cluttered style came along with them - LOL! I totally treated myself today by picking up Garden Gate, a kit I have been drooling over forever (or at least since it came out!!). I also picked up Something Sweet and some Petite Treasure Braids... :-) TWIS is having a Patricia-Ann Designs trunk show right now, and after seeing the stitched models of Lavender Path, Moonlit Orchid and A Secret Garden... amongst others... well, now I really want to move them up closer to the top of my "to do" pile.... groan.... it never ends - such sweet agony!! Honestly, though, the photos on these charts just do not do the finished samplers any justice at all! I was so impressed!
I have been spoilt today by Jenn! I received in the mail today a large flower fairies chart and a little flower fairies freebie kit from a UK cross stitch magazine, courtesy of Jenn's kindness! She read about how much I like the DMC Flower Fairies, and voila! She is just too, too sweet - especially with having mutilated her magazine just to do something nice for me. Jenn is great! Thanks Jenn!!!!!
Some new blooms for today - seems there are new ones every day now!
Oh my, what luck! There were actually some good solos left on the Silkweaver site today! I got two:I am feeling very lucky and excited about these!!
Stitched on today: Earth Angel and Peacock Cypher (finally found some time at work this morning to stitch on this again - with luck, I can get just a few minutes tomorrow at work and finish Section 3 - then I will post a progress scan :-)
