Halloween Fairy Finished!
I can't believe how long I dragged out the completion of this design. I've decided that I really dislike doing lots of long stitches (the metallics of the webs and vines) and I think that's why it took me so long when I was so close to finishing. Now I need to wash and frame it, which will no doubt take another two years.
Yesterday I discovered something I don't think I had previously realized - going to a craft store without knowing exactly what you need is just as bad as going to the grocery store hungry. I ended up with several things that I probably didn't need, but I'm a sucker for kitty cat Christmas ornaments (especially when they are 50% off). And organizer tools (especially when they are 30% off). And several other things what were various percentages off. :)
I'm going to finish a couple of small things and then get started on my next big design - Sleepy Hollow by Glendon Place. As has happened a couple of times, I had a hand-dyed fabric that I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for, and then found the perfect design (the fabric is "Raging Storm" by Silkweaver)!
