It's the Weekend!!!

...And tonight I got back to Petal Fairy. She is definitely one of my favorites right now. I didn't quite get the flower done, which I had hoped to do... but I am still happy with the progress.
I finally received my FOTM from Silkweaver today. It takes so much longer to get to me than it does to Becky in SC - mine is a pretty blue, slightly lighter than the scan shows and has a nice hand dyed appearance to it... as usual, I can always use blue fabric! I contacted Silkweaver today and asked them to replace that Midas Touch Reflections lugana I ordered a few days ago with their Blue Diamonds Reflections lugana, and of course they said, "Sure, no problem!" That is the fabric I have decided to use for the Celtic Winter SAL - I want mine to be sparkly like the snow that covers the ground here from November through March (trying to develop a positive attitude about winter here, and that is not easy for me - I hope this celtic lady will help to improve my attitude - HA!).

I had a couple of my older ebay bids come through today - MH 1836, an older retired Goode Huswife chart, as well as a fat half of Silkweaver Antique Gold cashel linen :-) I received the Guradian Angel kit, as well as Wedding Sampler Love, Flame of Friendship and the "must stitch" Summer House from ebay sellers today :-) But, the only new bidding I did today was for a chart that, if I get it, will be a surprise for a good friend (so, another good day with not being a compulsive spender on my own stash!!). ****I spoke too soon on that one! I ended up going to Joann's Fabrics while Mike and I ran a grocery errand for his birthday family BBQ tomorrow, and I picked up several extra skeins of DMC 927, as Katrina advised me I will need several when I stitch Mermaid Heaven...and I also got the invoice and paid for my FOTM from Heaven Lee Creations/The Blended Needle...sigh...

Red Sox 8, Phillies 0 - in first place, at least for now!

Stitched on today: Story Time for a little bit at work this morning, and Petal Fairy

Your FOTM is gorgeous! As are your flowers of course... :)

It's funny that you worked on The Petal Fairy today as I was just thinking about that piece and was going to ask you how it was coming along. :)
