FoF April update

I've finished page 1!  Yay!


This seemed like a good stopping place so I put her away untill the SAL next month and I have Lust waiting for me.  Now, to finish some painting first...

Wow!  There are so many colors in just that little space!

It's Thursday already??

This week has kind of gotten away from me.  We had baseball practice from 6 to 7:30 Monday and Tuesday which meant we didn't get home until almost 8.  Yesterday, my DH had a flat which I had to take and get fixed.  I didn't get home until 7:30.  Tonight...I don't have to go anywhere!  Yay!  Tomorrow is another story which hasn't been told yet so I won't go there.

There has been some stitching going on since my update though!

When you saw Coat of Arms last, on 3/30/14 I had just finished page 7.  


Page 8 on 4/4/14


Page 9 on 4/6/14


and Page 10 on 4/8/14


Not bad!  Makes me feel like progress even though those pages aren't very big.

My Faces of Faery #79 came back out last night.  I'm working on that eye again.  Since more of the colors are in, I'm not as unsure about it as I was.

Out like a lion

Isn't that the saying?  March will come in like a lamb and leave like a lion?  We've had high wind warnings all day.  I'd hoped to hang sheets outside since the temp was supposed to be in the 70s but that didn't happen.  They would have been blown all over town.

Looking back at my recent posts, it looks like I owe a couple weeks worth of stitching pictures.

Last week, I finished a corner of Chatelaine's Rose Garden Mandala.

I started on the next set of gates, but work has been very stressful with the new CFO making it plain she doesn't like me and doesn't want me there so I only managed to get the urn before I switched projects again.  

Coat of Arms came out then and tonight I've managed to finish another page.  Here's page 7


I started page 8 tonight so lets see how far I get.

On a totally non-stitchy note, does anybody know of any accounting openings in southeast Nebraska??  If not, and I'm assuming not, lol, but I would appreciate any and all well wishes in my job search.  Nebraska just has such a low unemployment rate that finding a new job is just kind of tough.  My husband and I even joked around last night that we should move to North Dakota and go to work in the oil industry.  It seems they have a huge number of jobs they can't fill.

Faces of Fairy

Just a quick update.  I've had my Faces of Fairy 79 out since I finished Dorothy and hit some big patches of single colors instead of all the confetti I seem to have found last month.  

Before:

After

I'm only about 12 stitches from the bottom of the page.  

I started filling in her eye Sunday night and I'm not sure how the colors are going to work in the "white" of her eye, but I suppose I'll just have to trust that it will work out...at least till it doesn't.

One last Dorothy update?

Ever since I finished Watergarden last week, I've been working steadily on Dorothy Walpole.  I'm hoping she'll be done by next weekend.  here's where she was last night.
