CW and some stash
I did some more work on CW. As soon as I picked it up I forgot all about blossom fairy. Hopefully this feeling will continue throughout these rotations. Working with the whites and grays is still a little boring. Using linen again however makes up for it. I think that part of the reason that I am finding it so dull is that the fairies dress was mostly in white too. My advice is to rotate this one with something colourful. I do have the castle which is colourful but it doesn't feel the same since I am only doing the backstitch. Since today is my choice I have decided to pick up the castle a day early. I wanted to get as much of it done as I can.
I was feeling sorry for myself a few days ago. Not for any particular reason I was just feeling a little down and so I decided to treat myself to a few new stitchy things. They came through the very next day so it really did cheer me up. I bought the chart of Petal fairy. I first fell in love with this when I saw this on Carols blog. Seeing her beautiful finish was the main reason why I decided to go ahead and order it. It will be quite a while before I stitch it as I have quite a few charts I want to stitch first.
This one I had to buy as soon as I saw it. I actually saw this finished in a store a few years ago, not long after I first took up stitching. I tried to get the kit but it was a limited edition and was out of print. I eventually got over my disappointment and stitched the Mickey Mouse version for my sister instead. I was so surprised when I saw this. I actually didn't think that it would come through. I was waiting for the email which said that it was no longer available. I can't wait to stitch him. I am thinking of putting him in place of the castle once it is finished. Although this would be going against my own advice about going for a colourful project.
I love your bugs bunny - he is so cute!
