First of all I just want to thank you all for taking the time to read my blog and comment my posts ! I do not think you understand how happy reading what you write makes me : ) At times it thrills me so much that I just HAVE to call my sis and tell her how wonderful I feel when I see your nice comments ! So I just want to take this opportunity to thank all of YOU for the happiness you all give me when you visit my blog : ) So , THANK YOU all you lovely cross stitchers out there in the world !
Now , on to stitching business ! So yesterday my Lavender Fairy looked like this . . .
. . .and today I stitched all afternoon and when I looked at what I had done . . .
. . . it looked like I had done almost nothing at all ! How depressing . . .! So , what DID I do ? Well , I completed some of the cross stitches I had left to do on the skirt , and I did some backstitching on the skirt too . However , the chart says to use grey thread so therefore it is almost impossible to see the backstitch once done . . .
Can YOU see the backstich ? ? I almost wanted to switch to black thread since I really don't like designs where one can't see the backstitch clearly . However , who am I to argue with Joan Elliott when it comes to design , so I am going to perservere with the grey thread and trust the chart and the designer . . .
I am so tempted to start some of the beading , but I know I have to wait . I stitch in hand and do not use a hoop or frame so there would be a risk of handling the fabric too much after adding the beads and Kreinik . Of course I don't want to risk having to redo any of the embellishments .
Now I have to decide what I want to stitch next . . . the legs . . . or some lavender . . . or more backstitch . . .? I'll see what I feel like tomorrow .
Happy Stitching Everyone,
