"Oh heaven preserve us from a wife with fancy work run wild. With hands that never do aught else for husband or for child. Our clothes are rent, our bills unpaid, our house is in disorder, and all because my lady wife has taken to embroider." -Anon
This little dude is stitching up fast! I love him. The colors are so beautiful and soft, but I have realized that I should have a laying tool in order to work properly with silk threads. Oh well! Next project by Shepherd's Bush will be done with one. I have many more kits by SB, so I'll have plenty of opportunity to practice with it.
I did a few more stitches on the Halloween Fairy, but I gotta tell you, I lucked into a gorgeous Halloween lady by Mirabilia in the September issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework. I didn't even realize it until after I'd bought it. WOW, it's gorgeous and will look nice side by side with the HF. Or maybe hanging somewhere else, lol. That's the fun is deciding where to put it. Oh, I have several that need framing, but I can still dream! The little sheep will be framed for Mom, but the rest will wait until work starts up again.
I've been married 29 years, have one 19 year old son and one little doggie. I've been stitching for about 26 years and it's my favorite hobby. I also sew, quilt, scrapbook, crochet, and do lots of generally crafty things. You'll find me making Halloween things all year round, as it's my favorite holiday! Thanks for looking at my blog.
