Page 3!

After what feels like an insanely busy weekend, I finished page 3 of Faces of Fairy 79

I started page 4 but didn't get enough done to take a picture.

All the better to see you with!!

So glad to be done with that other eye!  Love the way they turned out though.

I'm hoping to finish this page in the next couple of days and page three, which I've hit the outer edge, by the end of the week.  At that point, I'll have to make a decision.  Should I start page 4, pull out another WIP or start Daybreak??

Not a lot of progres

I don't know what it is about this project but I can't seem to get into it and make a lot of progress.  It could be that I've been pushing on other projects and this one came up when my mojo wants a break. 

On the other hand, I have read seven or eight books in the last week.  Thankfully most of them were free!

Heritage Sampler update

Saturday, I finished the first band of Chatelaine's Heritage Sampler.  I put a quarter on the fabric to give scale.

Yesterday, I finished the first vertical band on the left.  It is all blackwork and stitched up quickly.

And the overview picture.

Just because I really like those flowers, I took a close-up.

While I was downstairs Saturday night waiting for my son to shut his game off for bed, I pulled out my FOF 79.  I don't have much left on page 2 and page 3 is a maybe 15-20 stitches wide.  She hasn't gotten any attention since July 2014 so it's time.

Until next time.

The Heritage Sampler

It's interesting that I've gotten more done on this over the weekend than I managed all last week.  Anyway,  here is the left half of the first band.  I discovered Martina either made a boo boo or a change in the border I didn't find until too late so my version will be two stitches wider than it is charted.  But that's what makes it unique!

Now, I'm off to continue on with the right side.
