I've thought about getting online on Sundays and giving you all an update. I wish I could say I'm too busy stitching my little heart out to get it done, but that's not it. I think it's because work is stressing me out, I just don't have the inclination.
Last time, Watergarden was out. I finished another 1/8th of the border.
Then it was time for a SAL with some lovely ladies from a BB I frequent. We're all stitching a Face from HAED.
Last time Ginny was out,
I made it all the way across the page this month. I wanted to get to the fold of the page, but I didn't quite make it. Here she is now
Watergarden started calling me again so I pulled it out to finish the border and start beading. I'm hoping to get the border finished in the next couple of nights so I can start beading. I'm hoping to have a finish this weekend.
See you then!

Yesterday, I finished up all the strawberries in the border and decided it was time to put Miss Dorothy down for a bit. I'm planning on picking her back up later this month and working on her until she's finished. But I need a little break.
Then, I debated about Rose Garden or Watergarden. I decided that Watergarden hadn't been out for a while so it was time to give it some attention. This is where I am tonight.
Now, back to the Super Bowl and Watergarden.

Last week, after my post, I did finish another page of Coat of Arms. Here's page 6
Then, I thought about continuing on with page 7 but someone was whispering to me. Yesterday, I finally got through the big green and gold flower that had held me up last time I had her out. Don't know what it was about that flower, but the leaves and flowers since then have been much easier. Here's where Dorothy is right now and I'm hoping to get the next big flower in this row done today and move down a bit more and make sure my border matches.
I'll let you know how that goes.

Sorry about that. It wasn't intentional. I just didn't feel like blogging about my WIPs.
I guess we should start at the beginning. So here we go!
I did have a New Year's Start with a bulletin board I'm a member of. Everybody picked a Face and will be stitching it this year during the second weekend. I picked Faces of Fairy 79 by JBG. Definitely not my usual stitchy subject matter, but she's kinda cool.
Here was my start on January 1
and here she is after about a week's work during the SAL on January 17.
I also had Rose Garden Mandala out for a few days
When I put FoF 79 away, I pulled out an older WIP, Coat of Arms by Stickideen von der Wiehenburg and finished page 5
This one is stitched in BeLeaved by Hand Dyed Fibers on a piece of grab bag 36ct fabric. I'm almost done with page 6 so I'll try to post a picture of that and whatever progress I make on this or something else this weekend.
