Update

I am really enjoying stitching her at the moment. I have almost got the right hand side of her scarf done. Will upload a photo soon. Hope everyone has happy stitching.

A couple of things…

First of all, has anyone seen a photo of Lady Alex? I think she has a gorgeous dress. I like her, but I think she is one who I will wait to see WiP pictures of before I decide if I want her. I really like her hair style though…

Fire Goddess: I seem to be stitching her quite quickly at the moment, I think.

I know the fabric is only *just* big enough, but I like her on it anyway…

When she is finished I am tossing up about whether to start my Chatelaine (which I am so far behind on) or Air Goddess. As I said before Earth Goddess is my least favourite. Or pull out one of my other WiPs.

The other thing I want to do is hunt down Garden Verses, as she is no longer being printed. I really like her.

Gift of stitching promo

The gift of stitching e-mag is offering a three month trial for $3 (http://giftofstitching.blogspot.com/2011/06/three-month-trial.html) which is pretty good.

At the moment they have an Ink Circles design in it, which is a great price 😀

Hopefully this works

A few people ask how I stitch a) without a frame, and b) relatively quickly so I made a little video of me stitching.

My first attempt at filming was interrupted:

And the real attempt is a little out of focus but I think shows how I stitch:

Thanks for looking at my blog!

Bits and bobs of fire goddess and pearls….

I need to do more beading:

But she is progressing

Fire Goddess feels relatively fast compared to Pearls

The backstitch really does make a difference…

So shiny…

There are more beads and things… and shock of shocks, another post within a couple of days!
