I worked on 2 pieces, the first was Cathedral. I started my weekend on the bottom half of page 4:
I was able to finish the page! Here's a picture of all 4 pages:
I was also able to work on a piece that I'll be giving as a Christmas gift, so I'm only giving you a sneak peek:
This was my first use of silks, courtesy of Ewa. I'm so loving silk! The stitching part is finished, now I just need to decide how I'm going to put it together for the gift. I'll post a picture of the finished product after the holidays.
I'm also so VERY happy to share some images of charts I was recently RAKd/given. I've said it before and I'm sure I'll just keep saying it...but stitchers know how to spoil each other!!
A wonderful lady that I've met via FB, Karen, sent me QS Elfland Sleeping Fairy. I just love how all the golden hues and greens meld together...and my favorite is the little lizard in the bottom corner and the flower with the blue center!
I also signed up with some FB fellow stitchers for an October RAK event, partially to help sales for Heaven and Earth Designs, but mostly because it's FUN!! You are given the name of a participant to send a chart to, and then someone else is given your name (sort of like secret santa). Kathy from the group sent me these two GORGEOUS charts from my wishlist:
Dragonfly Cottage - I love the watercolors of this piece...and who doesn't love dragonflies?
Changing Seasons - Fall is my favorite season and I love the colors of the trees with the beautiful green of her dress
I don't know how I'm going to keep from starting all of these beauties!! I need more than 24 hours in a day so I can work on all my charts!!
Finally....I just want to share that....the Lord of the Rings SAL that I'm participating in is starting in
Thank you, as always...for stopping by and reading through my updates! I just adore all of you!!
