Silly, silly me

So I truly am an idiot sometimes. Earlier this year I was working on a freebie Passione design, you might remember fairy celebration 3. I was using a hand dyed thread by Polstitch. I made a huge mistake and had to frog a chunk of it, as I was working further on it I realized I might run out of thread because of that frog. So I ordered two more skeins knowing I would probably have to ripe out the old and restart it.....I was sort of ok with that as long as the two new skeins matched and I was learning my lesson on dyed threads. Fast forward to last week I was inputting the new supplies I purchased and received into my cross stitch program and when I got to the threads, my program said there were 2 in my stash already, I just assumed that I had updated the program already with the new supplies so I just carried on with adding the rest of the stuff, then when I was putting the supplies away what do you think I found? Yep that's right I had purchased a second skein for this project and could have finished it months ago if I had only looked in my stash and/or pulled out all the supplies at the begining so now I have two extra skeins......Well before continuing with this project I am going to double check that the skein wasn't picked for something else because knowing my luck I picked it for another monochromatic design.

In other news I have made great headwave with Found and the only reason why I put it down was because I had to and moved on to Prosperity, which is what I was working on this weekend since it was too hot for anything else it, I made great progress and it looks fabulous. I am thinking of changing the schedule of working on each picture to a month instead of two weeks since I really didn't want to put Found down last time and possibly I can finish Prosperity sooner which will give me more time for Found.......something still to think about.

Thanks for listening, I will try and post WIP pictures tomorrow.

Photos

Better late than never,





Here is Prosperity Fairy. I just have to do her eye and the flesh down her neck and back to finish off this section. I might do the back stitch too but since there are beads everywhere in this section around her crown I might wait.





and this is Greece by Chatelaine I have done the PB metallic border and started on the black order around the metallic. I did the two shades of blue/purple last time I worked on it I decided to do the border so I could jump around a bit more in the centre.


Thanks for listening.

Progress on pictures

Well I have now moved on to found by HAED and it is going well so far which means my current plan is working and I think I might be able to finish the entire row and the next one before it's time to switch.

I also was in the mood to stitch on greece by chatelaine this weekend so I did, the class just ended and I am just loving the WIP I was seeing so I caved. I actually stitched on it for about a half an hour a few months ago. I have converted all the specialty threads to DMC so I really want to see what it is going to look like compared to everyone elses. I might stitch on it a couple more times before the end of the year as long as I stay on track with my priority pieces.

Well my intentions is to go home and post some pictures of the progress I made.

Thanks for listening.

New smartphone

Well after a few frustrating few weeks with a dyeing blackberry I thought it was time to upgrade to an android phone. Lets see if this works. Maybe tomorrow I will talk about my stitching and post a picture or two.
