'Titania Queen of the Fairies'

A Finish for the old year!

I picked up Titania again just before Xmas, I was determined to finish her before the new year. I did so last night. I wanted to get some of my WIPS out of the way before starting my Sisters "Big 3" I had done all of the body but no wings..........

Before picking her up again

Left Wing

Right Wing

 The blending Filament in her wings was a pain to work with, 1 Strand over 1......but I got there in the end.
The Wings look amazing up close and I think she will really well as a companion piece to "Adia the Garden Fairy" Which is what I planned for her.

So Whats next.........."The Fairy Grandmother" from Lavender n Lace

My New Years Resolution is Not to have so many WIPS on the go at once, Finish 1 of the 7 Sins, Start another Sin "Sloth"......I have all the threads for now, Just need to wind them all onto bobbins and get the Fabric, Update my blog on a more regular basis, and hopefully find a new Job LOL!

Thanks for all of your great comments its nice to know that people out in cyber land like what you do.........

I hope you all have a Grand, Happy and Safe New Year..........

Happy Stitching all

Xmas Things and a Peacock!

So in my last post I mentioned about a Peacock! Well here he is -

Please excuse my hoop marks!

This was about 4 days in

I set myself a goal each day, by breaking the chart into pieces..........The Body , the Swirls, and the tail was in about 6 pieces! I was going to do daily pics, but by 1am each morning not so much!

Call me crazy But it worked! Thanks to Joan Elliot for designing such fantastically beautiful designs!

13 Days Later
Finished! AMAZING!

So with a little time left it was Xmas Card Time.........

If you are wondering about the holes......they are punched and closed with a gold split pin.......We have incredible humidity ATM.....and its a way to keep them from warping in the heat.....I also am in Love with spray glue......LOL!

The Charts came from a freebie collection with a Xstitch mag

My Next Projects are picked and ordered as well.

I was doing the Night and Day Butterfly Fairies, But for some reason i just was not feeling the charts and designs, not that they are not nice designs I just couldn't get into it. As they were a gift for my Sister I had to have a word.....She also was on at me to add beads and sparkly things........She has not a creative bone and just didn't get it when I explained that it wasn't that easy to just "add" them in!

So I took her through the Mirabilia Site to Pick something New! Because we all know how much sparkly things are in those designs.....and Instead of 1 chart we had 2!

The Woodland Fairie

A Midsummer Night's Fairy

Then after she was safely tucked away downstairs I Picked this to go in The Middle

Lilly of the Woods

I personally think the 3 will look amazing together! Also Lilly is a Surprise which I think she will like

So Because I have some short weeks coming up over the Christmas period......I need to finish some UFOs

Well until I get a chart and some threads to make a start...........

So for 13 days I was doing a full 8 hours at work and then a full 6 Hours each night stitching........

I will post a pic as soon as it comes of the we are on Christmas week....i still have all my cards to go......They are mostly stitched.......mostly..........
