Golden Thought & Holly

More weekend progress. Did quite a bit of Golden Thought, but it was promptly pushed aside when my sparkly pink fabric for the Mirabilia Holly Pixie got here! It's coming along pretty well, considering that I never stick with a new project for more than a day. But then, that was the me of over ten years ago. Maybe things are different now. I certainly hope so... I really want to finish this one!

Two small notes on the pixie:

- There's a missing stitch in the rightmost berry on her backside. :p I filled it in with one of the dark reds to match the photo on the pattern.
- The triangle symbol is supposed to be 500, but it looks almost identical to the darker green in her dress. I made it a blend of 500/501 and it's much better.

I wonder if my sudden interest in stitching is because of all my mom's stuff that's sitting in the closet. I know it's not because stitching makes me think of her - she never liked to DO it, just enjoyed collecting, buying, selling, and trading.
