I've Been Stitching

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Friday night I decided since I couldn't work on MAM I would work on Topaz Fairie instead.:) I finished one of her four wings. I am still missing one Kreinik and the beads but I will work on what I can. As for her wings, I have to say I am not impressed with the colors. I think they are blah looking.


Saturday I did get my flosses needed for Mine All Mine but after talking with Renee, we decided that it would work better this week for us to work on Summer's Magic on Saturday. After I put that away I pulled out Mine All Mine and worked on it for a little bit that night.

I was hoping to finish MAM on Sunday but I just couldn't get motivate to stitch. So today, I decided I was not going to put Mine All Mine down until it was finished. Which I am happy to say I did finish this afternoon.:) Mac is thrilled that I am done and is ready to go fabric hunting!

I was a little unhappy to see some of the red color bled on the fabric. I put a little bit of Shout on it and hopefully it will come out. If not, Mac is still happy with it and that is all that matters.:)

Jenn asked who I will be stitching the next stocking for and it will be for one of the babies. I actually have both of their stocking picked out to stitch. I won't be stitching identical ones for them but the pattern themes are similar.

Happy Stitching!

Your right the fairy wings seem to blend into the background. You have to really look to see them.

You've been a busy, busy stitcher and it doesn't look like you are going to slow down anytime soon! LOL

Can't wait to see what you've picked out for the babies.

Mac's dragon is ADORABLE!

Dear Dawn, thank you for your kind comments on my blog. I am coping well with it.
Your dragon is awesome! And the fairy will be amazing as well, definitely.

Nice progress on both WIP's, and hopefully the wings will stand out a bit more as you progress, it does kind of look like it fades out now.

Congratulations on finishing Mine, it looks wonderful. Mac is going to love having his own special stocking to use this year.

Congrats on the MAM finish! Maybe your faerie's wings won't seem so blah once it all comes together and gets finished up.
