Topaz Weekend Progress

As I mentioned in yesterday's post I did work a little bit on Topaz Fairie this past weekend. I filled in the rest of her arm and worked on the other wing. While I was stitching I did find an error in the opposite wing so now I have to frog the whole wing. I am not looking forward to that so I am putting it off as long as possible!



Also, I did get a chance to finish Joyeux Noel into an ornament. I didn't have anything Christmasy looking to match so I opted for a matching pink. For some reason I can't get a really good picture of Joyeux Noel. The linen is actually a smoky blue color and is really pretty but for some reason it looks grey and dull. I am going to blame it on the rain we have been having.


I am not sure if I will get any stitching done today as I have to clear out a spot in the living room for the Christmas Tree. We have an artificial tree due to our allergies so I also have to dig it out of the storage area. I have been putting it off because this will be Claudia's and Bitsy's first Christmas tree and I am not ready for them to bat at the ornaments or climb the tree.
Enjoy your day!

Argh, attack of the frog! I always hate frogging, but it's a toss up between the effort of restitching, and the knowledge that there's a mistake in the stitching. That always bugs me.

The ornie turned out cute. Have fun putting up the chrissy tree.
