Iris Fairy Finally Finished

It has taken me longer than it should of to stitch Iris but a few flare ups and tons of beads slowed me down. I am ready to move on now.
She is stitched on 28ct Polstitches Colorful Clouds Jobelin

A Little More Stitching

It has been slow stitching lately but I have made headway.
First I made a little gift for my sister.  I stitched this Dragon Dreams freebie for my sister's 50th birthday.  It is going on top of a little junk box for her desk in her cubicle (tiny prison).
The second stitching I've been doing is Iris Fairy.  Got moving along on it but ran out of 501 and had to wait till I could get around to getting more.  Here she is so far.
So that is all for now.

Found WIP

We are moving around the rooms in the house and I found a WIP from several years ago that I lost during a previous move.  It is Mirabilia the Kiss but I changed the male in the picture to reflect the Phantom of the Opera.  I covered 1/2 his face with the mask and changed his hair to completely black/dark dark brown.  I am so happy to find this.  Maybe I can get it done in this year

Iris Fairy - Getting so Close

Joan Elliott's Iris Fairy is getting so close to done, I can taste it.  It is the first of her fairies I have tried.  I did do her Make a Wish Dragaon.  The pieces have beautiful shading and lots of bling.  The Iris petals are surrounded in Balger to really make them stand out.  So here she is.  If the "parkies" cooperate I can maybe get her done by the end of next weekend.

Finally another finish

This is an old WIP.  I didn't think I would ever get it done.  The fabric is some Dying4U that I still had.  It has been a long long time since they sold fabric.  So here it is
Jardin d' Jour  by Needlemania

Lanarte: Elements Water (first 10 hour rotation)

Absolute worst picture ever.  It looks like the fabric has colors but it is white.

I got a slow start but hopefully my fingers are remembering how to stitch LOL....

Well on to my next rotation project.

Another Rotation on Bluebell

Well Here is Bluebell as of 2/20/2013.   She is slowly getting there.

YEAH! A WIP out of the Stack

I finished Dog Lessons for People by Lizzie Kate today.  This one has been sitting for quite awhile.  I had finished Cat Lessons for People and started the Dog one and then kinda got bored and moved on.  So after I got back on rotation so I could finish some WIPs that were floating around here it is finished... I am soooooo happy.   Here it is.
I can now frame it and this
and neither the cats or dogs can be jealous since they will both have their own pictures up.  Now it is time to go back to Blueberry again.  I caved in today and ordered the new Mermaid from Mirabilia, even though I haven't gotten brave enough to do a Mira Mermaid yet, LOL.

Eclipse - Fire Wing

This rotation was all about dragons, well and eclipses.  It was Fire Wings Eclipse.  Stitched on 28ct Rustic Rhubarb from Polstitches.  I am going to finish it this year.
Now back to Ms. Bluebell.

Bluebell 2nd Rotation 1.25.13

I ran out of Kreinik 1432 so did not get the wing finished on Bluebell this round.  I have some ordered in so hopefully the next round she will have a finished wing :).
The Wings are beautiful but working with all that metallic thread is a pain you know where.  So my next project in rotation will be Fire Wing Eclipse.

Pirate Queen

Here is Pirate Queen by Dark Side of the Moon after her rotation.  She is stitched on 28ct Polstitches Big Bang Jobelan.  Now I go back to Nora Corbett's Bluebell.

2nd Rotation on Bluebell

So here is the second 10 hours on Bluebell.  I like to bead as I go, I just can't face all that beading at the end, I would probably never finished if I did that.
Next ten hour rotation is Pirate Queen by Dark Side of the Moon..

Jardin d'jour WIP

I got a little work done on my Jardin d'Jour from Needlemania.  It is stitched on a fabric by Dyeing4U which unfortunately is no longer around.

It is approximately 1/2 done.

Now it is back to Bluebell.

WIPs I Hope to Finish This year

I am in a group that plan to work on WIPs that have been sitting around this year.  This are not all seriously old ones but ones I do really want to finish.  I will sandwich them in with new ones I want to do and try to finish all of these this year.  Here is where I am on them now.
 Dog Lessons by Lizzie Kate
 Pirate Queen by Dark Side of the Moon
 Eclipse by Fire Wing
 Egypt Garden by Chatelaine
 Inspiration by Rosewood Manor
 Iris Fairy by Joan Elliot
Pansy by Nora Corbett/Mirabilia
Jardin d'Jour by Ink Circles

There are more WIPS in my life but these are the ones I want to get done the most.  So I have some new ones I want to start and I will be working in rotation but these will be added in to finish this year.  I will have some pictures of Bluebell by Mirabilia for tomorrows blog post, I didn't get much done on her the last two day.s

A New Year - A New Start

Okay, so I fell off the edge of the world toward the end of the year.  I got little done and a lot of nothing accomplished, just mostly feeling sorry for myself I guess.  Anyway, I am ready to go.

There is going to be a new baby arriving in the family in March, I will be a great aunt again for the 9th time.  I crocheted a little swaddler bag and hat for her this weekend.  Here is a picture.

I now belong to a group that is doing a SAL on Bluebell by Nora Corbett so I started her yesterday not enough to show any of it yet, hopefully tomorrow.  I also am in another group to help get WIPs done, so I have been rounding all my projects that are WIP as of 1/1/13 and am going to work them into a rotation with Bluebell and a couple others.  The other thing I am going to start it a pair of birds I got from Chatelaine.  Vicki and I are going to do them, I do the first, here the second release, back and forth.  When done we will put them together and make a quilt or wall hanging, not sure which.  I signed up for the Chatelaine Dragonfly Mandala, but I wont be starting it anytime soon, but it was just too pretty to pass up.  My stitching is slower these days but I hope to get to work now..

So here is to seeing more of you here :)..  And Happy New Year.
