WIP QS White Rose Fae - 30th July

I've been stitching like crazy and I think I might be able to meet the deadline after all. :) Well the weekend is again important time, I should stitch a lot then. I have stitched all the sparkly parts. I ordered the mounts for framing, I'll pick them up next week. I chose an oldish pink and white. It's going to look great when framed... at least I hope so. :) Here is a new pic of the Fae.

I bought the game

I just couldn't wait for the game so I ordered it from eBay. I hope it arrives soon. :)

I have stitched some of the Fae and will post a picture today or tomorrow. I am becoming a little pessimistic about getting it ready in time... but I'll still try. But I have a plan B for the wedding present if I won't make it. I will still give the Fae to the happy couple even if it means it's after the wedding.

DMC Stitchopoly Board Game!

I just came across a board game called Stitchopoly (by DMC)! It's a stitcher's version of the Monopoly and sounds like a lot of fun! I just might make a wish for this for my 30th birthday on September since apart from stitching I also like to play board games . :D

Another birthday wish is Michael Powell's English Village 1. I love the colours on this chart.

WIP White Rose Fae - 15th of July

I took a picture of the Fae today. I started to stitch the roses and leaves and stitch the confetti in her hair in between since stitching just the confetti is not really so much fun. It feels like there is no progress even though there is. I didn't get much done since I was away for the weekend. I hope I catch up this week. Well anyway, here's the pic :)

New x-stitch charts :)

I bought a couple of Barbara Ana Designs charts from Creative Poppy. I love those colourful designs. :) Here are pics of the new charts.

I was supposed to take a wip pic of the Fae yesterday but didn't have time so I'll post a pic this evening.

I've been RAKed again!

I can't believe I forgot to post here... well I've been so excited so it just slipped my mind. So, I was RAKed last sunday. This time the raker was Juniper523 and she got me QS Snow-Kitty Fae. Thank you so much Juniper! Here is a picture of the lovely chart. Look at the kitty, isn't she so cute? I think I have to make a rotation list as soon as the White Rose Fae is done since I want to finish my Storykeeper SK, stitch at least on page of the Perfect Poison, start this AND the Sunset by the end of this year... If only there was more hours in the day... sigh! Or if I won the lottery so I wouldn't have to work anymore and would have more time to stitch! :D Well, one can only wish...

WIP QS White Rose Fae - 6th of July

Now she has a face! Only a couple more stitches to her eyes and stitching the confetti in her hair and her head will be stitched. After that I start stitching the roses. I actually started to stitch one rose already, it's stitched with winter white thread so it doesn't show so well in the picture.

I love this chart!

I came across this kit at Sew and So and it was 50% off! It's the Wild Ones Aplhabet by DMC. I have been looking for this for a long time. It was sold out everywhere and I thought it was discontinued. I'm so happy I found it. :) The colours are great and I love the style. There is also some threads, Petite Braid and DMC that I need.

These I ordered from The Faeryland calender is signed by Selina. I like the Autumn Winds keyring, it's for myself. :) I also ordered something else but since it's going to be a present I won't reveal it here yet.

I changed the pics so you can see the details better. Just click to see them larger.

I couldn't resist!

A new artwork Sunset by Rachel Anderson was released only a while ago and it's already charted by the HAED! Thanks Michele and Bob! I was thinking about buying it after I finish the Fae but I couldn't resist and just went ahead and bought it! :) Isn't it just gorgeous?

My stitching/knitting/reading/etc corner :)

Here is a photo of my stitching/knitting/reading/etc corner. :) You can see some of my knitting yarns and fabrics for my stitching inside the boxes in the corner. And there is a bike with a basket made out of willow too. I bought it last December since it's so cute. I store my crocheted bags in it...since I still need to sew the linings...well maybe I get to that after I finish the Fae. :) I didn't want too comfortable chair since I want to stay in a quite upright position while stitching so that my back is straigh when I stitch. I hope that helps me and relaxes my shoulders. First I was thinking of buying a red chair but since we have a red sofa (the divan part is in the picture) I thought it might be too much red so I went for the brown one and it fits in perfectly with the other colours in our living room.
