Little Fairies at Play received some attention this week.  Page 9 is moving along.

Spent 2 days this weekend doing yardwork.  We power washed the house, dug up old rose bushes and mulched.  With an extra day off tomorrow we will play.

May Wipocalypse

Little Fairies at Play.  Started page 9 and I will pick this one back up this week.

 Faces of Faery 90.  Still working on page 1.  I decided not to do the HAED challenge this time.  Doing a whole page in cross country in about a month and a half.  I just don't have enough stitching time and do not stitch that fast.  So I decided to stick with my rotation.
 Summer Sensation I worked on this the past 2 weeks.Still didn't get much done. 

Someone asked to see what charts I purchased in the last HAED sale.  Here are the ones I got:
QS A Stitch in Time Garden - love the colors in this one.
QS A Stitch in Time Sweet Life
 QS Poppy Fairy
 QS Porthole of Fantasy
QS A Stitch in Time by Moonlight

I figured I would never finish the large design these QS were taken from.  They are small enough I have a better chance of finishing one of these smaller ones.  But I still need to find more stitching time.

This month we were to talk about what we were stitching this time last year.  I was of course stitching Little Fairies at Play, Butterfly Fairy Night and I had just started Faces of Faery 90.   And I am still stitching them all.

 Faces of Faery 90 saw some attention.  I  worked on it for 2 weeks since I didn't get much time to work on it
 I went to Clifty Falls State Park and Mammoth Cave hiking with my sister for a week.  Took a project to stitch on and had a bad cold and just slept each night.  We did see alot of wildlife.  Box Turtles were out and about.  We moved some off the roads and found this one in the woods.
The bull frogs were loudly singing.  It did rain every day but we hiked anyways.  The wild turkeys were also out doing their mating dances.

WIPocalypse April

 At the end of March I finished page 8 of Little Fairies at Play.  Five months for a page finish.  I am hoping to finish another page before the end of the year.
 So I made a start on page 9.  This is as of today.  Stitching time has been limited.  Too many other activities.
And I did work on Freedom this past month  I have almost finished this letter.  I plan on getting back into my rotation.

I did buy 5 more HAED charts during the past 2 sales.  So I need to get it in gear if I have any hope of finishing anything.

This month we were to talk about what we listen to while stitching.  Most of the time I am watching tv  Occasionally when I am home alone I do put on the radio and stitch away.  I do get more done with the radio on.

I have finished page 8 of Little Fairies at Play.  59,023 stitches complete which is 40%.  I worked on this piece exclusively for 3 weeks with the goal of finishing the page by the end of March.  Just made it.  It took me 5 months to complete this page.  I am not the fastest stitcher.

I am getting back into my rotation with this being my focus project so it will get worked on every other week.

WIPocalypse March

 Somehow this picture jumped onto my blog.We spent a day at the Auburn Cord Duesenburg Museum in Auburn IN last week.
 I worked on Summer Sensation since the last WIPocalypse.  Love the colors in this one.
And I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  I am much farther along than this but I have not taken an updated picture.  My goal is to finish this page by the end of the month  I have about 1200 stitches left.

This week we celebrated my Dad's 82nd birthday. Here  he is with my kids and they are all smiling.
 Last week I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  I moved my scroll rods so I can finish the top of page 8.  This is my focus piece and I work on it every other week.  I am getting it back out tonight after I finish this posting.
And I spent this past week working on Summer Senstation. Starting another flower. I love the colors in this one.

The weather is warming up and my tulips are poking their heads out.  I am looking forward to getting outside more.
