My plan was to stitch and only stitch the PR sal all of September....
I got the top all stitched up
And almost Step 10 as you can see here...
Now beading I always do last as I find the thread hooks onto the beads as I'm stitching.
So back to the story. I found out about the free Joan Elliott fairy (See her blog if you have not got it yet)
and thought I would start stitching my wip Autumn Fairy.
Then I got sick for a day or so, think it was something I ate. I could not stitch so started to put the DMC threads onto cards as I do, so much easier to use this way
For Earwen, lots of gray in her
The Rose of Sharon
So now I want to stitch The Rose Of Sharon Stitching on 18ct "Dirty" Aida
There is not much because then I hurt my back, nothing mayor just hurt for a few days. I did lots of walking and put on lots of heat cream. It took 3 days to just do her hair because it hurt to sit and stitch.
So because I could not stitch I started to look at the cross stitch mags I have and charts I've kept over the years. I have so many mag's that has a Joan Elliott fairy/angel in it.
As I was looking at charts one jumped out at me, I kept it for a gift and so now I'm stitching it for Christmas, it will go to a good home. It's from Cross Stitch Collection Issue 223 June 2013 and called A Chaffinch In Summer.
Here is what it will look like:
And So Far... I'm stitching on white 14ct Aida.
Hope to do more this weekend.
So thats the story of September so far.... I hope the rest is better.
I will say I'm all better and back stitching again.
I almost forgot Amount Spend: $5.00 Thought I had all the DMC for my bird but no. Everything Fabric most threads I had in my stash.
So Happy Stitching!!!
