I was working on Nora Corbett’s Lily for a while. She is now finished as well.
I started Ink Circle’s RYO. I have bought the full series, but here is the first one:
As I work on mulitple projects and like having my current WiPs on hand, I decided I needed a better way to store them, so I purchased a 10 drawer unit that sits besides my stitching chair in the living room.
Currently I have Mermaid of the Pearls, Titania and Egyptian Garden Mandala in there, plus a few others.
The 3rd last Heaven and Earth Designs sale was way too tempting with over 50% off, so I ended up purchasing quite a few designs. Quite a few were on my wish list for a while, such as Minerva’s Melody by Josephine Wall, Faery Bride by Amy Brown, and Dragonflies Whispers by Ching-Chou Kuik. I was tempted to get the Seven Deadly Sins by Marta Dahlig. I was considering the minis of those. I need to buy floss so I can start. I have bought some 20ct evenweave to stitch them on. I had some 22ct stuff but I really dislike it. I was considering restarting Doorway to the Stars.

I started her as my let me get back into cross stitch project in 2007… Here we are 6 years later and after many other finished projects… Complete!!!
I ran out of the beads in her skirt so substituted delica seed beads, and the beads in her blanket are ones I had on hand – perhaps a little bright but I think they work. The only beads that are the correct beads are the light blue ones, which I somehow was 10 beads short from the first packet. I had a second one on hand though 🙂
She has had a bath – mild detergent and lots of rinsing and has been ironed… The water from the detergent was grey!!!! I knew she was a bit grubby (6 years, 2 states and 5 houses later) but I didn’t quite expect that!!!!

I have just put the last bead in… I wasn’t going to finish her tonight but the cat curled up on my lap and was purring away so I just kept beading and beading…
I don’t know how many beads were in her tail, but there were an awful lot of just one colour. It does make her pretty and three dimensional though 😀
Now my net is going monstrously slowly and its taking 40 minutes for my photos to upload…
And because her hands were bothering me Water Goddess backstitched hands
