My progress on Lady Slipper. I have about 600 stitches left on the bottom of her dress. Then on to her skin and wings. I am still debating to do the skin 1 over 1 or the 2 over 2. Since I am not going make it to my goal to have her finish by my birthday, I am leaning towards to the 1 over 1 method.
I had started on My Big Toe Building Block Hope. I had finish the borders and started on the "E". I did start the lettering but I don't like how it looks so I am replacing the thread with DMC 209. It will look very good. It's a gift which is going be late.
I was looking for some bookmarks and I came across Coming to America by LHN. I had only the dress stitched. I added part of the pier and one wave. I am not sure of the color of the water. The thread is gray but it can come together when I add more color. I hope to get back to this project soon. I do like the fabric's color.
I did started on Gaze by Kustoms Krafts. It is a tiny start. Right now there is only 3 shades of orange. I am going where my stitching wants to be stitch and that seems to be going across.
I signed up for a St. Patrick magnet exchange. The pattern is from Judi Utter and could be found on CyperStitcers.com. I changed the colors to represent a rainbow and the clover is metallic green. It went to Tonya in Idaho.
This ornament is for my monthly ornament exchange for April. It is from JCS Christmas 2012 issue. The design is Joy to You by Glory Bee Designs on 14 count blue aida and using DMC 304 thread. It was very quick to stitch.
I will have an another update soon. I am going to Yankee Candle in Massachusetts for a day. I believe its their headquarters. If there is time, we are stopping at a LNS, Thistle Needleworks in Glastonbury. I can't spend much there because my birthday is coming but I can try find something for an giveaway, maybe. I will show off my goodies.
I hope everyone is enjoying their Spring. It's been warning up very nicely here in the last few days. I even left my window open at night in the last couple nights.
