WIPocalypse September

 Since the last full moon I have worked on Little Fairies at Play
 Butterfly Fairy Night,
Garden of Hope
And Summer Sensation

I get home so late that by the time I get dinner fixed and eaten, there is only an hour before bed and I don't get my stitching out.

This  month we are to talk about where we get our stash.  I am lucky I have an LNS here in town - Stitch N Frame.  I don't go very often as I have plenty of stash.  I was trying to get a piece framed every year.  Maybe I will start that again next year.

We also have 2 Michaels - one by where I work and one by where I live, a Hobby Lobby and Walmart is now carrying floss again.  I mostly buy more floss from any of the stores that have the number I need.

This past weekend we went to the James Dean Festival in Fairmount.   So again not much stitching got done.

I worked on Little Fairies at Play last week. I was working on the more solid stitched areas and made alot of progress.  But that whole middle section is full of confetti stitches.  This page had alot of confetti stitching. I think that is why it is taking so long to finish it.  (thats my story and I am sticking to it)

The weather is beautiful here.  Low 70's and no humidity.  And the weekly forecast calls for that all week.  I am going to try and walk every night this week.  I did 2 miles with my sister today at a local park.

This week I worked on Butterfly Fairy Night.  Some progress was made but not  alot.  I am trying to get back into working out.  Finding the time to do everything I have to do, and want to do is hard.  So I only get about an hour a night to stitch. (if I am lucky).

This week I am back to working on Little Fairies at Play.  Still hoping to finish page 7.

 I started another project.  This one is called A Garden of Faith, Hope, Love from Cross Country Stitching June 1999.  This one has been in my to do pile for a long time.  With my new motto "You can't finish anything if you never start" I went ahead and started this one  It kinda looks like a pin head person.  But the hair is done in whisper and I will add that when I am finished with all of the cross stitching.  The fabric is very stiff.  It is 14 ct Antique White Aida.  I haven't had any this stiff in a long time.
Here is what it will look like when it is finished.  This one shouldn't take too long compared to some of my others.
