I worked on Butterfly Fairy Night last week.  Now that the weather is warm time must be spent doing yard work.  But still progress was made.

Tuesday night I worked on pulling threads to start a new HAED.  I still need to buy quite a few but I have a coupon for Michaels that I am going to use.  While I had all of my thread stash pulled out I asked my friend if he new what this was called (I was going for stash).  He replied:  "Loving your string?".   I laughed so hard.  He has alot to learn about stitchers.  lol

Last fall I planted 30 tulip bulbs.  I ran out of flower bed space so I put 15 in 3 large flower pots.  My tulips are starting to bloom and I hope to get some pictures.  Unfortunately the bulbs planted in the flower pots did not make it. 

I am back to working on Little Fairies at Play.  I might keep this one out for 2 weeks as I didn't start stitching on it until last night.

I did work some more on my Little Fairies at Play before putting it away.  2,060 stitches complete now on page 7.

Maybe next time I will get to the halfway point on page 7.

Monday my son-in-law found this used car.  My son will drive it to school and also hopefully a job.  At least it looks nice sitting in my driveway.

More tulips are coming up but still nothing in the pots I used for some of them.  When they are blooming I will take a picture.

April WIPocalypse

Since the last new moon I did get to work on all 3 of my projects.

 Little Fairies at Play.  Moving right along.  I still have today and tomorrow to work on it before moving on to the next project.
 Butterfly Fairy Night.  This one is up next. 
Folk Santa.  All of the cross stitching is done and I have started on the back stitching.  Hoping for a finish the next time it is up.

We were to talk about what specialty stitches do we enjoy.  I have not done alot of projects with specialty stitches.  So I don't have any favorites.

This week Folk Santa was up to be worked on.

I made alot of progress as I was home sick for 2 days.  I think I should be able to finish it the next time it comes up. 

It was a free Starz weekend and we watched alot of tv while recovering.

This past week I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  800 stitches complete this week for a total of 1,200 done on page 7.

The flu bug came and visited me.  It is throwing off my stitching time.  I am now scrubbing down the house to kill all of the germs so no one else gets it.

I have been working on Butterfly Fairy Night during my last rotation.  Some of the colors are so light that I have trouble seeing them.

This week I will be back to working on Little Fairies at Play.  Since it is so large I am going to work on it every other week and hope to make some good progress on it.

Our snow has melted and the temperatures are warming up.  My tulips are starting to come up.  I planted almost 30 bulbs in the fall in my back yard and in some large pots.  I am just starting to see them poke their heads out.  I guess the squirrels did not get them all.

With the warm weather returning I am back to walking.  I hope to walk off some of the weight I put on over the winter.  My sister and I hit the trails in May for a trip and I need to keep up with her.  She has been doing tri-athilons and I will have a hard time keeping up with her.

WIPocalypse March

I only worked on two projects this past month. 

 Little Fairies at Play.  I have made a start on page 7.  About 400 stitches.  I still have this one out to work on some more.
Folk Santa is moving right along.  It will be finished this year!

The topic this month is what would you do with unlimited funds for stitching.  Well I think I have plenty of projects to stitch on.  I just need time.  So maybe I would use the money for a cleaning lady.  lol  Then I could sit and stitch and watch her clean.
