Halloween Fairy Update



This is Halloween Fairy as it was yesterday. She is stitching up quickly, although I don't spend much more than an hour or two a day on the stitching.

Rachel and Steven came home from Uni for the Easter break at the weekend, and it has been chaotic! Sammy doesn't finish school until tomorrow, and I'm still on sick leave.

We adopted two cats last week, as their owner is moving back down south, and is planning on going on a long break to Australia with the profit from her house. The cats are Dizzy, who is black and white and is just over a year old, and Phoebe, who is a tabby with patches of ginger, and she is several years old - not sure exactly how old...They are both settling in nicely, although I have several scratches on the back of my hand from Dizzy - she is very temperamental - she'll let you stroke her one minute, then she'll suddenly hiss and scratch...I suppose she'll settle down soon...

I've bought a bit of stash recently (Do I really need more...?) I bought Just Nan's Boo! Tin and Needlebook charts, Blue Ribbon Designs' 'A Sampler in the Square' chart, and Prairie Schooler's Alphabet (ABC, DEF, GHI)charts, along with some Crescent Colour and WDW threads. I only needed the threads, but temptation got the better of me :o) I also managed to put 'Dream' and 'Believe' in for framing..Pictures to follow...

She's looking great!! The new stash sounds like fun. And enjoy those new furbabies of yours. I hope Dizzy settles down soon for you.

She looks marvelous! I've loved this piece since I first saw it in the magazine and my love for it has only grown with each stitched picture I've seen since then. Yours is coming along beautifully!
