I forgot to say that today is my brother’s birthday today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY WALLY!! He’s a big 6-2 today. He’s the oldest of the 7 children and I’m the youngest. Mom used to always call us the bookends. lol He wasn’t home today, but I did leave a message on his machine.
Well, since I finished up the stocking today…I started a new piece for Christmas. It will be for my dd’s Christmas gift. She’s called SK Flower Fairys Rest. It is a HAED and I just love her! I know dd will too. It’s a Storykeep, so it’s the smaller version of a big piece. It is stitched on white 25 count jobelan and I had the background removed so that all we will see is the fairy and the flower. It will be very striking! Oh…my camera took a really lousy pic of it tonight for some reason and I’m too tired to take another one. lol The fabric is WHITE and the colors are pinks, purples, mauves, etc… VERY vibrant. And, although it doesn’t look like there is a lot done, this took me 5 hours to do. Very tiny and a LOT of color changes. But oh so worth it! It will be 2 inches wide by 9.5 inches tall.
What it will look like when finished except with a white background:
And what I got done tonight:
Catch you later gators!!
