She has hair and a left sleeve!

Hi all!

How I had longed for this day when I had nothing planned except for lots of stitching and lots of tv ! It was bliss ! ! ! Sadly I have been feeling very tired lately and I had to take a nap this afternoon too , but otherwise I just stitched and I also did some crochet : )

Of course I stitched only on my Lavender Fairy by Joan Elliott ! I have other wonderful WIPs hanging around , but right now the Lavender Fairy is calling my name from the moment I get out of bed until the moment I go to bed in the evening. . ! So today I stitched some of her brown hair and her left sleeve . . .

. . . and I just love the fact that I can make out her shape now ! It makes me feel even more inspired to stitch her - if that is possible ! I have a dislike for stitching skin colours since they are so similar and difficult to make out on the chart , but I am going to have to do brave those pesky colours soon. . . ! It is just much more fun to stitch the colourful dress . . .ha ha !

I am hoping that I can get lots of stitching done this coming week , as I have nothing else planned except for dog walks and icehockey matches on the box : ) It sounds like crafty heaven to me !

Happy Stitching Everyone!



  1. Love those rare days. Very pretty stitching:)

  2. I guess we appreciate them even more just because they are so rare:)

  3. Your progress is lovely. I also don't care for stitching skin, there are often a lot of fractional stitches on those parts too.

  4. How glad I am to find out that it is not only me that find skin areas tricky : ) I am going to try to tackle those areas bit by bit and mix it with more enjoyable stitching on the dress : )

  5. Wow, you can already see her form. The dress is looking great. Happy stitching:)

  6. It is great, isn't it? Now it is even more fun to stitch her!

  7. Beautiful progress! I haven't had a chance to stitch any of my JE pieces lately, but I've heard from several people that the dresses go pretty quickly. They're so pretty with all those shades.


Reading your lovely comments truly makes my day, so thank you!
