Then it was time to revisit my castle.....thinking positive thoughts here. I added a couple more rounds on the spider web stitch (which I didn't do right in the first place and then finished part 2!!!! Unfortunately I was looking at another blog and got a close up of what they are really supposed to look like and I was really disappointed in mine. I decide to cut one out and redo it the right way. They look slightly better, but I still think it's because of the *twisted* premium floss and not the way DMC lays flat. I will redo the remaining 14, but only when I am working on that particular color.
Next up? Well the WIP photos people are putting up on the Fairy Garden (A Chatelaine design) were just too hard to resist, so I finally got that one out. I worked 2 days of this and here is where it stands now. I am so glad I did my first one that released a part a month, because I'm not sure I'm smart enough to figure out where all the specialty stitches go and which ones!!! I might just have to travel out to the border now and leave the petals alone. 2 pieces with specialty stitches can cause havoc to this cross stitch lover!!!
In my last post I forget to put a photo of Amberlyn!! I know....how could I forget?? Well here is my latest. She's had 2 ear infections now.....the fun begins. All the local schools are closed for the flu outbreak, most return this Wednesday. Glad I got my shot since I'm around that age at work all day!
Have a great week and keep those needles smoking!
