Long time no post again.

But I have gotten back to work.

This is the first 10 hour rotation on Lanarte Water Element.

Okay, it looks like a blue blob.  It took me a while to stitch because the fingers weren't wanting to work right but they are starting to get the idea again, lol.

On to my next rotation project.

Fire Wing Eclipse

I have finally finished it and I love it.  It is stitched on Polstitches Rustic Rhubarb 28 ct Rustic Rhubarb.  The fabric is fantastic.

Rotation on Fire Wing Eclipse

Finished my 10 hours on Eclipse and managed to get a dragon finished and some more of the Eclipse stitched.  Eclipse is stitched on Polstitches Rustic Rhubarb.

Now it is back to Ms. Bluebell.

More Bluebell

I was working on Buebell's wings when I ran out of 1432 Kreinik so I just placed an order for more.  I was at the end of my rotation on her anyway.  So now I move on to Fire Wing Eclipse.
Here she is though, partial wing and all.

Mermaids of the Deep Blue

This is after about a week of working on her:

I have put her away for now though to focus on my Christmas stitching. Hopefully I can bring her out around New Years to finish this one up! :)

Joan Elliott Iris Fairy

Got some time to stitch finally this weekend, so here is a little more of Iris Fairy done, that sleeve seemed to not want to be finished.  The frogs really hated me this weekend.  I hope they go visit someone else now, or better yet, just go find a good pond to hang out in.

Just a little Finish

Design: Here Be Dragons
Designer: Dragon Dreams

    I started this little design while I was doing my finals for college. It took me the span of a wek to get it all stitched up. I plan on mounting it as a box top.

My Sister, Vicki, and I

have just been redecorating our house and we finally got around to framing some of our stitching (by no means all of it, after all these years) but I thought I'd take a few pictures.  I am definitely not a good photographer (Parkies shake when holding a camera) but here is some of what I came up with.  We kinda frame our own cross stitch, we can't really afford to take it all and have it professionally framed, I sure wish I could.  Here goes.  These were mostly taken in our livng  area.

A Little More of Joan Elliott Iris Done

adore Polstitches fabric, I love the smell while I am stitching as well as the beautiful colors.  This is my second Joan Elliott.  The first was the Magic Dragon, but this is the first fairy, the detail is just amazing.
PS the fabric is colorful clouds Jobelan 28 count, so pretty.  I also started MIrabilia pixie Pansy on what I believe is Polstitches Wisteria 28ct Jobelan. I want to put all flower Pixies and Fairies up in my bedroom.

Until later, have a great 4th of July.

Joan Elliott's Iris Fairy

Some Done On Iris Fairy on 28ct Colorful Clouds by Polstitches.  Slowly stitching :)

She's Done

I finally finished Mirabilia Millennium Angel.  I started her a long time ago (probably 10 years ago) and have been working on her off and on.  She has been my focus for probably 2 months.  I thought she would never be finished.

I am now working on another WIP by Mirabilia - Autumn Queen so since it is not fantasy, it won't be posted here but I will be putting it on my stitching blog.  I have also been doing some small projects.  My next fantasy ones will be a SAL by Passione Ricamo and Solstice and Equinox which is an HAED (my son chose this one for him - I hope to have it done after his four years of premed - he is a senior in high school).  I will post those here as I get some done.

My First HAED

I started my first ever HAED recently, Dragon Soul , and having chosen 28ct evenweave fabric I put in a few stitches and then decided for the sake of my eyes to change to 16ct aida. I bought a 17"x17" snap frame and started again. My Petite Treasure Braid came in the post yesterday,I thought I'd try it instead of the Kreinik suggested. I am in a metallic area so I will be seeing what it looks like next time I pick the design up.

My progress so far.

HAED Winter Spirit

I am currently working on a QS from Heaven and Earth Designs of a painting done by Josephine Wall. It is mainly done up up of blues and purples. Really pretty picture and I can't wait to work on her more. Here is the picture of the painting:

I have been working on this project since maybe mid March. My stitching bug seemed to have left me for about the last two weeks until I forced myself to pick it up again and start working. I am working on 18 count Aida doing full crosses. Almost done the first page, only one other full page to do after then it is all partial pages to do! The colors are off a bit but you get the idea :)

Joan Elliott Stitch Along

Well I noticed Wednesday was a Joan Elliott Stitch along so I decided to post a picture of my Christmas Angel. I didn't get too much done since I was distracted by hockey (GO CANUCKS!) but I did manage to get her face and a little birdie done.
