First off, I have made some progress on Santa in the Clouds. The last time it looked like this:
I didn't stitch much on this because I got distracted with holiday stuff.
However, I do have a finish to show!
Yep Halloween Green is done!
Last time it was here:
Finally, I have a new start! I told myself I wouldn't start it until I finished Halloween Green which is what pushed me to finish it but ever since I have I've been a stitching machine! Curious yet? 😈
It's Raven from Nora Corbett's Bewitching Pixies series! I stitched all of the black in the last two days and I think I'll have her finished in no time! She's stitched on 14 ct opalescent Aida that I dyed a stormy gray with a touch of purple. It's a tad darker than I was planning but I like it. I chose the gray because it's something that all of them will look good on and with the sparkles it's like they're conjuring magic on a stormy night. Each one will have a touch of the same color as in their dress. The purple didn't come out super well but I still like it. I'm excited to get into the purples in her dress and the moon. I'm going to do the skin over one so that will take a while but I don't think it'll be too bad. All of Halloween Green and Raven have been stitched since the weekend since I am now officially on break from work.
I also got a bit of new stash. The first I'm not going to show but I finally finished my DMC collection after 3 trips to the store. I only was short by 50 or so colors.
The second thing I got was the Dimensions Gold kit Woodland Enchantress.
Finally, I received a very generous gift from Keiley at Keebles World. She got me a HAED!
Whew that's a lot! I'm still catching up on blogs but I'm only about a week behind now instead of over a month. I haven't been reading a lot lately because I've been too busy stitching but I'm okay with that!
After the new year I won't be stitching much because I'll be starting student teaching which is going to eat up almost all of my time. Luckily the school is less than ten minutes from me. I'm hopefully going to have one day a week that I won't do any planning or anything and can just stitch but we'll see how things go.
Thanks for stopping by! I probably won't be back (well depends on how Raven goes) so if I don't see you again have a Merry Christmas or happy whatever holiday you celebrate! We celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah at my house. I'll see you (hopefully) before the new year!
