It's been a while! But I was away from home for a bit, attending my brother's wedding in NJ this weekend... and yes, got totally buried by the snowstorm! The wedding actually got delayed by one day since the original date was the day of the storm. All worked out great, though, everything was lovely and it was a small, intimate gathering.
And then my flight home got delayed by seven hours without warning... but hey, I did a lot of stitching at the airport. :p
Here's another little Mill Hill kit, Yellow Swallowtail:
This one was very heavy on the beading! I finished the stitching and kept looking over the chart to make sure I hadn't missed anything, because it was only about half stitched! I know it's a bit hard to tell in the photo but a lot of the black and yellow areas are solidly beaded.
I think this is the last MH butterfly I'll be doing... there are others but I'm not super fond of them. Now I just have to take the three I've finished and turn them into something. Not sure about the whole magnet idea. I don't like the idea of leaving a stitched piece, especially one that's done on paper, in the kitchen where I might touch it with wet/dirty hands by accident. Hmm.
I picked up Fatum again but since I just got home, there isn't much to show yet. Next time. :)
