I worked on Butterfly Fairies Night this past week. I am working on a wing so more colors should be appearing.  I am getting more comfortable working on even weave.

I am going to start a small freebie kit that came with one of my magazines.  I need something to work on while sitting in waiting rooms.

Hope to have lots of progress to show next week.  If I don't have to rake too many leaves!

This week I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  Page 6 is moving right along.  I hope to finish this page before the end of the year.

When I went to the Tulip Festival in May I bought 20 tulip bulbs to plant.  They were to be shipped in October for planting.  Well my package showed up this week and along with my 20 bulbs they included a free package of mixed bulbs.  The package said 15 bulbs but I counted them and there were 19.  I have given some away but still have almost 30 bulbs to plant.

WIPocalypse October

 I worked on Little Fairies at Play this past month and got quite a bit stitched.
I also started a new project - Butterfly Fairies Night.  So I now have 2 projects in my rotation.  Since these are both large pieces I am going to work on just these 2 until the end of the year.  I am making a list of the projects I want to start next year and kitting them up.  I will try and have a mix of small and medium projects added to my rotation.

This month we are to answer the question "Are you a Halloween or Christmas stitcher".  I have not stitched any pieces that are either Halloween or Christmas themed.  I have made some Christmas ornaments in the past but not for the last few years.  I have seen a few projects that are Halloween and/or Christmas that have caught my eye and I would like to stitch.  I am sure one will jump into my rotation sometime.  I also don't stitch Christmas gifts for anyone as my family doesn't really appreciate them.  They do like the ornaments I have made in the past and I might try doing some again.
