One Fae Silenced Temporaily

Blossom Fae now has a complete face and most of both wings...another page complete. She seems content for the moment. On to the Wizard of Oz. I have about 30% of another page complete and would like to get this page finished. ALL of this chart is detail stitching (NOT confetti) so it is definitely slower going.
Anyway here is Blossom

Taj Mahal

Here is my update on Chatelaine's Taj Mahal Mandala Garden. The centre is complete except for the beads and specialty stitches, as is the upper right corner. I have put it away again since the Fae's are screaming. I am going to try to get another page of Blossom Fae completed

This Week's Stitching

I have completed this months SAL challenge and half a page of Pine Cone Fae complete

I will now put it away again till next month. This week I want to stitch on my HAED Round Robin. I am working on Midnight Orchard for Leigh's Ian Daniels piece. I also hope to do a little stitching on Taj Mahal so I have enough done to post a picture.

We will see how the week goes...

Taj Mahal silks

I finally have all of the silks for Chatelaine's Taj Mahal. It has taken awhile-over a month while Stitching Bits and Bobs waited for the missing items. I have done some stitching on it but got fristrated without all of the colours. Now I can bring it back out and stitch on it again. Here they all are:

Yes- I bobbinated which I normally hate but I wanted to separate these from all other threads .

You scored as The Holly. In Celtic astrology, you're a Holly. The animal symbol that accompanies this tree is the unicorn. The ancient Druids say Holly people are cautious, capable, steadfast, efficient, supportive and protective. However, Hollies may be prone to perfectionism, loss of direction and possessiveness, especially toward people.

Another Week

Another week has passed and with work being very busy and needing to stitch to unwind, not much posting. The stitching has been productive. I have completed another page of Angel and I still remain loving this piece.

I now have Blossom Fae and Pine Cone Fae on the stand. I will work on Blossom until the weekend then Pine Cone for the SAL.
