Page Finish!

 I finally finished page 7 of Little Fairies at Play.
Here is how it looks with all 7 pages.  This is 51,708 stitches.  I am 35% done.  I must be one of the slowest HAED stitchers.  I still have the rest of this week to get a good start on page 8.

WIPocalypse October

 This month I worked on Faces of Faery 90. 
 And Little Fairies at Play got worked on every other week.  It is back out now and I hope to finish page 7 this week with a start on page 8.  Someone asked for a picture of the whole thing.  When page 7 is done I will see if I can get a picture.
And this past week I worked on Freedom by Joan Elliott.  There will be alot of backstitching on this project.

This month we are to talk about if there are any fibers or fabrics we are afraid to try.  I don't like stitching on linen.  Most of my projects are on Aida.  Butterfly Fairy Night is on evenweave.  I am doing better this time than when I stitched Butterfly Fairy Day.  But I go slow to make sure I am stitching in the right place.

I have not tried very many specialty fibers.

I am almost finished with page 7.  Still alot of confetti.  From a distance I think the flowers look like Hollyhocks. I hope to get this page finished next rotation and make a good start on page 8 which I hope does not have as much confetti.  I had been getting 2 page finishes a year until this page.

 This week I worked on Faces of Faery 90.  It is moving right along.  I really enjoy stitching on my HAED pieces.
 The week before I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  Closing in on a page finish but back in the confetti area.  I will be working on this piece again this week.
 And I spent 2 days in Southern Indiana visiting family.  We went to a wildlife/nature preserve.
It was quiet and beautiful there.  Time to get back to my regular schedule.
