Weekly Update

Another week has gone by, and not much stitching has been completed in that time – the only thing I’ve been working on this week has been my Halloween Fairy with a few more stitches put in Mon-Thu this week.  I’ve made OK progress on this one, but it’ll be a few weeks yet before she’s finished (not just stitching-wise, but I realised I’m missing two Kreinik braids which I’ve had to order and wait because they’re out of stock – I had a store credit to use up with Needle in a Haystack, so I decided to put it to good use with my braids).  I have to admit I’m enjoying stitching her with her decent sized blocks of colour 🙂

The only other news is that my Scissor Pocket Exchange arrived safely at its destination during the week, and thankfully Lillie likes it, which is the important thing 🙂  It was supposed to be a no-extras exchange (love those exchanges), but I couldn’t resist adding a little pair of scissors that I’d bought at the last craft fair we went to, which I used as my basis to choose a thread from my stash to match.  I didn’t think to take a photo of the inside flap, where I stitched both our initials, so I’ve borrowed one of Lillie’s photos (hope she doesn’t mind).

Rightio, time to head off and do something – I need to kit up a Lizzie*Kate Welcome Baby sampler for a colleague’s new daughter, and find a Halloween cape in the depths of the garage for an upcoming fancy dress party for Katie, as well as head out to a shopping mall to actually find a top to wear tonight!

  1. I loved it and the scissor is one to die for!
    Thank you so much Anne. You are so thoughtfull in
    putting everything in for this exchange.
    I definately don’t mind about the photo,
    only that my camera didn’t captured the colors well.
    Thank you!

  2. Ann, its been quite awhile since I’ve stopped by again! Too long as ususal as I always enjoy your blog! Your Halloween Fairy is looking great!

    Isn’t it frustrating when a band takes forever to come on stage. That was the case when my friend and I went to a show at a local bar about 5 years ago. And you said it, bored to tears and my back hurt from standing so long waiting!
