Nora Corbett Tigerlily

I received my final gift from my secret sister this week and I feel in love with it.  Cerys sent me the Nora Corbett design Tigerlily and the beads and kreinik that goes with her.  I had some Toffee Popsicle Polstitches 32ct opalescent belfast.  I decided it was perfect for her and slipped her in as the next one in my rotation (I have no willpower, LOL)..  So here is her first ten hours, now back to Pirate Queen.  I was amazed how quickly she is stitching up.

DSotM Pirate Queen

So this weekend I got 3 or 4 hours of stitching in and my Pirate Queen now has a face.  I am not completely happy with it, but for now I will leave her alone and go on.  I am almost done with this rotaton on her and then on to JE Spring Fairy.

Here she is so far.  Please excuse the picture, it was taken with my cell, can't figure out where our camera is this morning.

My Stitching Bucket List

Okay, I finished a biggie and was thinking about my rotation.  Then I sidetracked to thinking about what I would like to stitch sitting there in my stash.  Then I got to thinking about how I am getting older every day and would I even have time to stitch them, LOL  Okay anyway I decided to make up a stitching bucket list.  So here is my list of stitching I would like to do before I am unable to stitch anymore (for whatever reason).

WooooooHOOOOOOOOOOO Happy Dance!!!!!!

Morning Fae is done!!!  The only thing not stitched on her is the mountain to her back because our four Shih Tzu's played tug of war with that part of the pattern.  I am sooooo Happy.   I love the bling and the detail on her!!

I am so happy to finish and ready to get going on to my rotation now.  I will start working on my Pirate Queen next for at least 10 hours!

So here she is.  Stitched on 32ct Jobelan from Silkweaver.  I cried when I finished.  She is the first fantasy lady I have ever finished and she will not be my last.
