Fairy Legs

Click now for JiffNotes

I can't wait to see what kind of search engine hits I get from this post. It's bad enough with this one lying around in the blog. I've finished one medallion of the capelet! I've done another block on my Herringbone Block Scarf! But I don't have pictures! For now, we'll have to make do with a progress picture of my Easter Fairy, which I am slowing despairing of actually being a fairy by Easter. Maybe if I get her done by the end of Spring, that will count. For something. I'm not sure what. I know she's going to be beautiful. I'm sure a lot of you could have her done, like, next week. But I'm a slow stitcher. I enjoy the pretty, pretty floss too much. One thing that amazes me about this design and its floss colors is that when I first stitched the legs, I thought, Holy cow! Those are bright pink! I think my fairy has rosacea or some kind of skin condition, anyway. But now that they're backstitched, she just looks like she's a healthy shade of pink. Amazing.


I promise more progress pictures soon. And I promise I'll actually work on something on my Monthly Theme list. Although, Mirabilia is technically one of my favorite designers, so, you know...I'm not too far off.

Spring creeps slowly nearer...we even walked to lunch today, it was so nice outside!

Looks like a lot of progress from the last time I saw the fairy. Good job! :)

Wow, it looks like you've done a lot. Maybe if I worked on the one I have started she'd be done by next Halloween!

Your Easter is coming along well - and the legs do look like a healthier shade of pink now that they're backstitched.
