The moon and the fairy.

I have a few new updates to share. It's been over a month since I last posted but there has been
stitching progress.

This is a piece by waxing moon called 'love you to the moon and back'. I stitched it for Adrian for our two year wedding anniversary as the traditional present to give is cotton, I thought a stitched piece was a nice touch. He loved it! I must say, I loved stitching with crecsent colours thread as stitching the crosses one by one gave it a beautiful look. I also must say I hated stitching on the cashel linen darker fabric colour! It did my head in and I made numerous mistakes, but I got though it in the end. The result was worth it. And I love the little moon button.

I have started stitching a new pattern now as I finished all the projects I needed to and I was so excited to start on something new!! There is nothing like starting a new cross stitch. I've had this kit tucked away for over a year in my tub and I finally bought her out. It is a mirabilia design called halloween fairy who I've always loved! I bought the kit once when I went to a stitchy show so everything was in the kit already. I am stitching it on 32 count natural linen from zweigart along with cresent colour thread again and beads by mill hill. This is my progress so far which I only started about a week ago.

I am really enjoying stitching this so far. Only this time I am not stitching each cross one by one as that would take FOREVER! Halloween fairy is going to match my feather fairy I stitched two years ago who sits proudly on the lounge room wall. I will have to sit them next to each other when I've finished stitching this fairy.

Next weekend I am giving my sisters their babies birth samplers which I am very excited about. They've been framed and are all ready to be handed over. I can't wait to see their faces.

Happy Stitching xx
