Well, I've got a little stash to share with you today. First is a chart I've always wanted but was leery to buy. I've always been overly cautious when it comes to art to cross stitch conversions. But I have seen this one stitched up and its fantastic! My very good friend Beth gave this to me as a present when we met up on Saturday for lunch. Thank you Beth! What a lovely pressie! I definately have to stitch this piece in the near future. I plan to stitch it over on on 25count.
Next... two of my Silkweaver hand dyed arrived today. The one on the left is Precious Metals 32ct Jazlyn. One of two colours I ordered as a possible for Mirabilia's Christmas Elf Fairy. The second piece for CEF hasn't arrived and its Wandering Ivy on 32ct Lugana. The funky green piece on the right is Jungle Boogie, which I ordered "just because". I thought there was a little more yellow in it, but its still a fun piece of fabric. I have no clue what I'm going to stitch on it!!!
I also received in the mail the last installment of the Just Cross Stitch Retro Ornament Round Robin. I look forward to stitching it as soon as I get some other stuff done! My final parcel tonight, yes I was quite shocked to get three! Was two more small models for Great Bear Canada. These ones are a total surprise! I had no idea they were on their way, I just hope they aren't needed for Nashville in February. There is just no way I can get that done, maybe if I didn't work full time it would be possible, but I do. I'm waiting to find out what sort of deadline there is on these pieces.
Now I did have a new start tonight, the first of two treat bags for the February Blahs exchange over at Needle and Thread BB. I'm having fun with hand dyed fabric and overdyed silks! Hopefully when I'm done the stitching I'll be able to turn them into the treat bags I picture in my mind. I'll of course put together a tutorial over at my webpage.
Speaking of my webpage, if you've tried to visit it lately... you'll have noticed I exceeded my bandwith for the month. Well thank you to my Webmistress I've got some more bandwidth and we're up and running again! I'm also going to make an effort to use Blogger to share photos with you instead of putting all my progress pictures up at my webspace.
