Stitch From Stash November

I know this is a bit early but with the way November has been going for me I thought I would post stitch from stash now.

Start of the month I stitched The rose of Sharon which I'm going to give as a 80th birthday gift next November 2015. Right now I could only stitch a little as I could not get into her. 

See that's the thing this month I want to stitch but.... I found I just sit there and looked at my stitching not do it.

So next I got out my QS April Fairy and did a little on her

It's not much if you go back to my last post of her.

I thought a new start would help, see I want to stitch I just could not find what.

The new start is Faces Of Faery 164 Which will look like this one day

As you can see not much before I put this one away again too

(I'm not sure which way is up in the photo sorry)

Got out PR Sal and yay I found it, I found the one I want to stitch and not just look at. Happy Dance!!!!
Step 11 is all stitched as of tonight but for the beads.

With all this going on I've been playing bubble Witch 2 thinking I need time away from the cross stitch but I kept going back for more. So it's been fun and games. I think I will keep going on the PR Sal, maybe it's because it's like stitching little one's and not one big chart, I don't know.

Last posting I was telling you about my friend who is down on her luck and I was looking for something to stitch her. Well update, I got together pictures of anything and everything I would stitch and got her to pick one out of maybe 20 pictures, showed her the 3 I've shown you and she want for something I never would have picked for her.

Storykeep Seasons Spring

She told me it's calming and looks like it tells a story. I have to say it is pretty. So I will wait until HEAD has a christmas sale on and hope to stitch it next year.  
The best thing is she still has no idea why I'm asking her to pick a picture. I've told her she will have to see next year so it will be a true gift that she does not know anything about.

That's it for now If I get another PR Sal box done I will post again or I will just go back to bubble witch 2 which is a very good game. Happy stitching


  1. It's a horrible feeling when you want to stitch but just don't know which project to work on. I'm glad you found something inspiring in the end though. All of your work is lovely. I've got April Fairy in my "desperately want to stitch" pile, but not sure I can cope with the confetti HAEDs are renowned for! :)

  2. I know exactly how you feel!! I was/still feeling like this for the past few weeks. It resulted in plenty of new start (smalls), but hardly any finishes!!
    Looks like I finally snapped out of this :) You found lovely project to work on.
