Fairy Update and Beach Musings

OK, I have finished the treat bag on the Fairy and I think she's pretty happy about it. I'm trying to not be such a perfectionist about it all, but neat and tidy stitches are part of what I love about cross stitching anyways and I just won't be getting over it anytime soon. :)

My sis and her family are at the beach with my mom this week. Jealous as I am, I know I'll soon follow and I'm looking foward to the day when my biggest problem is that there is sand in the shower. What's not to like about the beach I ask you? My favorite and fondest memories are of childhood vacations with family, doing all of our routine beach activities and eating at fun places and just being together. Just being, together. See how that little comma makes all the dif? Have fun family! Enjoy the beauty of the ocean and be aware of the salt air, the heat, the sunshine, and the sounds of it all.

I really want this ...

Have you seen the new Shepherd's Bush design? It's not as pale and girly as some of their others, and I just love the water/ocean/shore/homey design of it! I wonder if I pick this up on vacation if I could make a dent in it before I have to go back to work in September? It's worth a try, don't you think?

I'm still working on my Halloween Fairy and the treat bag is well underway. Those wings are going to be ALOT of stitching! No pain, no gain !
Hey, for any Nirvana fans out there....someone turned me on to this magnificent cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit. Seriously, it has to be seen to be believed!

New blogger here!

Hi there! I'm a new blogger, so be patient while I get everything situated. My header looks off center to me. Anyone else see it that way?
Oh well, let me get my project out there. Right now, I'm working on Mirabilia's (Nora Corbett) Halloween Fairy. I've surprised myself with this one and it looks like it just might get finished. It's been fun.
I'm not up on all the cross stitch blogging acronyms (I've seen alot!), but I hope to be soon.
