When I first started this blog about 18 months ago one of my first finishes was a pretty summer fairy for Laura's bedroom. But her walls were so full of photos and drawings that I stored it away until I could find a space for it! Finally a few weeks ago she had a big sort out and her walls are now less crowded...... so I finally took the fairy for framing and here is the end result.
Of course Laura now thinks she should have another fairy to go under this one in her room..... I have found another one called Moon fairy that I will add to my "To Do" list.
Last week should have been Christmas Window week on my rota, but I just didn't feel like stitching on it at the time so I continued with my Art Deco Diva as I am enjoying this one so much. In the latest issue of Cross Stitch Card Shop they have a set of six small Art Deco ladies too, so I also started one of those but have no photo of that yet.
I still have some cross stitch to do on her but have completed a lot of the back stitching so her features are more defined. I am working on my Christmas Window this week instead.
I also finally finished April..... but haven't made it up into an ornament yet, I will do that over the Easter weekend, so it will be a little late being hung up! I need to do the "May" one next...... I am determined to do all the months this year that I didn't complete last year.
The girls and Stuart all break up on Thursday for Easter holidays. I have 3 days off from Friday so I'm looking forward to the break. Laura has just had a 2 day GCSE exam for art. 5 hours each day in silence!!! I don't know how she managed that!! It is strange to think that this is the end of their last full term at school. Next exam for them is German "speaking part" just after Easter..... so lots of revision over ths hols!!Until next time.... happy stitching...
