I worked on Fairies at Play this past week.  I really enjoy stitching on this one.  It is like working a large jigsaw puzzle.  You put in one stitch at a time and when you stand back to look, you can see the picture.  I have finished 4,700 stitches out of 146,700.  I am still on page 1 out of 28.  I am thinking about revising my rotation to work on this one at least twice a month.  I want to keep one slot in my rotation for small items as everything else is large.

I have this one on scroll rods that are 38 inches long. I didn't know how I was going to store it when I was not working on it.  A pillow case (that I use for my other projects on scroll rods) was just not big enough.  So I bought a large (48 inches) canvas garment bag that I have hanging in my closet.  This slips inside of the bag very easily and I can put my other scroll rod projects in there too.  I still keep the other projects in pillow cases so the scroll rod hardware will not rub on the other projects in the garment bag.
