RR & more Titania

Got my stitching done on Blu's round robin! This will be a pretty palm tree when it's finished, but for now it's a blotchy pot and a lot of background. :3

Titania is getting too big for the scanner. I'll have to resort to the camera soon.

I also have TW's Woodland Faerie all kitted up, but I can't iron my fabric because the last time I used the iron, the scrap fabric I was using MELTED onto it. Luckily it didn't get on the actual piece I was ironing (Barnabee :3) but it DID completely ruin the iron and I haven't picked up another one yet. Blah. :p

Barnabee's Bride :3

Whew. I had my father and brother visiting for a week and it's been slow going on the stitchy front. I was able to make some good progress on Titania but I haven't scanned her yet. I'll do an update for her soon.

But I did manage to start AND finish Barnabee's Bride by Just Nan. This was an easy project, completed in the span of about 24 hours. :3 I don't have the right kind of glue, so the shell button is shown loose here.

Speaking of Just Nan, I also picked up the chart and all the goodies for Mermaid Heart. I'm not a JN fan, but that particular design was very appealing to me, as was this one. And, okay, I bought Floral Fifteen because that's just awesome. :D

Got to stop buying new designs, I'll never catch up. We had another expensive trip to the LNS this week, but hey, it's vacation... right?

ladybug! (again)

Finished the ladybug about 30 minutes ago. It's so cute when it's all done! I haven't stitched much in the last few days, but I'd say this took about a week, assuming about two hours of stitching time per night. Each side of the square took one weeknight, and I did the entire center over the span of one evening and some TV time today. :)

Decided to do them all in a row! Dragonfly is next. :3 But... is that really what I want to do next? HAHAHA. I could work on Titania, or one of my round robins...

Or maybe start something new. I don't usually like Just Nan designs, but I couldn't resist picking up the chart and fabrics for Floral Fifteen. Love the colors! I also kitted up TW's Woodland Faerie, but the fabric I ordered won't be arriving until next weekend or so. Hmm...


I'm currently working on the Country Cottage Needleworks set of four Garden Party designs. I'm about halfway through with the ladybug and I'm trying to decide how I want to lay them out on the fabric! Four in a row? In a square as shown on the CCN website? I don't know! Fortunately I have a day or two to decide since I still need to finish up this cute little bug. :3
