Blurry Charlotte

Charlotte is moving along :D  I'm hoping to finish her when I next stitch on her :D

I think my camera is dying :(


I'm starting a new project now, Arianna from Cross Stitching Art (yes I am addicted to CSA designs ;) )

This is the model pic


I can't wait to get started, shes so cute :D

It's my birthday this Thursday, I'm not sure what I am going to do for it, but my sweetie went shopping - I'm not sure whether to be scared or not ;)

Its also Miss Aliyah's 5th very soon and I made her party invites to day.


They were such fun, I found the idea on a free printables search and added in the bubble stick for the wand handle :D

*hugs*

Half a Happy Dance, A decision and ENVY :D

This week I stitched on Rose Fairy (Cross Stitching Art)  AND  I finished all the stitching!  :D  Just the beading to go, I am waiting on an order from 123 which includes the beads..... and a little stash spree, I'll share pics when they arrive :D


Not a great photo cause I took it quickly on my phone :D  I will take better pics when shes finished properly.

I made  a decision about Chatelaines DBS, I am going to restart.  I love the piece SO much and have struggled right from the beginning.  So its coming up my birthday in June so I think I will buy something light and pretty from Crafty Kitten and use my birthday voucher and birthday money :D

ENVY!!  Oh my gosh!  I always do this!  When I go look at the new Chatelaines when I've had a wee break!   BUT  I am in love!

I NEED:

Pomarium to go with Herbularius and what I have seen so far I'm in love with Tinctorium.

Sparkling Peacock Mandala

Tahiti Island Mandala *drool*

Sleeping Beautys Castle

Japanese Moss Garden *drool* some more

And I can't wait to see more of the Nymphs Garden :D

*hugs*

The dilemma

I'm trying to decide what to do about Deep Blue Sea.  I love the piece, I love my fabric, but I'm really struggling to stitch it :(. I feel like I'm stitching blind :(

So do I keep trying, toss it and restart, or just toss it?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

*hugs*

Andie

P.s. I have tried bright lights both above and under and I have tried the light cloth on my lap, nothing seems to help..... I'm thinking antique White would be fab ;)

PPS: Thanks everyone for your advice, I have decided to restart on a different fabric

The chandelier

from Siren and the Shipwreck is gonna be GORGEOUS!!



My goal for this week was to finish the Xs on the chandelier..... took me more than a week to get stuck into it, but when I did I got it done in an afternoon!

Back to Deep Blue Sea today :D

*hugs*

Return of the Deep Blue Sea

Yay!  I completed Part 4 of Chatelaines Deep Blue Sea!!

Seriously a big deal for me as last time I stitched on it those clam shells nearly made me quit!  :D


Sorry my pic is a bit washed out :(

I am stitching on Mirabilias Siren and the Shipwreck then I may either finish Part 5 of DBS or stitch some on Watergarden.... I haven't decided which yet :D

*hugs*

Andie

P.S  Have you Chatelaine lovers seen Tinctorium?  I love those willow arches!  I think  I may need it ;)

Charlotte

I think I've finally gotten my mojo back!!!  Now I know I've said it before.... BUT  this time I think I really have!

I picked up Charlotte by Mirabilia a few weeks ago, this is where I was at with her:




And where I am now:


I also want to pull out one of my Chatelaines to start stitching on again, but I can't decide between Deep Blue Sea, Watergarden, Secret Victorian Garden, Tuscany Town Mandala (which I bought as a wip) or a new start ;)  I'm more inclined towards a wip though.

*hugs*

I've missed blogging!

I was thinking just the other day how much I had missed blogging!  I thought it was about time I got back to it :D

We bought a nice lap top to replace out very dead, unusable personal computer.  And although I am not a huge fan of laptops, I must admit this one isn't too bad and serves our needs :D

Well what have I been up to?!

This week I have been stitching on Siren of the Deep from Cross Stitching Art - I'm stitching her on Chesapeake Bay - opal linen from Under the Sea Fabrics.



I've been struggling with my mojo lately so haven't done much really, hopefully it will come right soon.

Before this I stitched a model for Cross Stitching Art

Its absolutely beautiful and I didn't want to send it back!  :D

Celine the Winter Fairy









I'm moving onto a new piece to stitch now :D  I'm hoping it will kick start that sporadic mojo!

I'm starting Sirens Song Mermaid - Mirabilia - pictures hopefully sooner rather than later :D

*hugs*

Queen Mermaid Update

Well there's not much to see really, my mojo has been seriously lacking.... In fact I've had lots of problems with it this year.

Here's my pic though


Hopefully next time I stitch on her I will do better!

Moving onto Gabrielle's Lady of the Mist now :)

*hugs*

Day and Night Fairies

This is the official photo, I have some I took but this is more accurate :)

No stitching this week

I've been in a bit of a slump, not helped by being overtired :(

I do have a picture to show you though, this is the latest design from Cross Stitching Art (this is not the model I stitched, that will be out either at the end of this week or beginning of next)

Rainy Day Stroll


I love just about everything about this design!  I love her dress, I love the dog, I love the street lights and especially the way the reflect in the wet on the ground, I love the brolly - although it's possible I might change the colour of it when I stitch this, although I probably won't.  I have discovered with Tatiana's designs that the colours really do work and are so interesting.

I plan to stitch her on a rainy day coloured fabric, a grey or greyey blue or maybe a dark stormy blue... I will have to see what I have closer to the time.

I should have a Queen Mermaid update for you in a few days :)

*hugs*

The Bad Blogger Award

Goes to me!!  :)

Although I just found the app for my iPhone, that my awesome family got me for my birthday :)

I have stitched quite a bit :)

I finished (except for 4 beads) my section on Julie's round robin.

My section 


The whole piece


This is an absolutely gorgeous piece!

I am rotating at the moment and just finished a slot on Rose Fairy (Cross Stitching Art)

Before


I had done a bit more than this

After


I have now picked up Queen Mermaid.

Tatiana is working her magic and getting the chart ready then I can show you the last model I stitched.

Well this app seems pretty easy to use so I'm sure to see you again soon!
