New WIP update

Good afternoon, all!

Got all my chores completed this morning, so I am getting my fairy back out after lunch to work on her some more. Not much done, but I will try and post a pic soon. She got delayed in starting, because I had bought all new floss, but the skein of 3371 got so tangled up and knotted when I tried to put it on the DMC StitchBow floss holder, I had to go to Michael's yesterday and get 2 new ones. I have NEVER had that happen with either the DMC or using the floss holders, so I guess I just got a bad skein. /shrug.

Anyhoo..... here is what I have so far. Nora Corbett's Trick or Treat Fairy from September 2008 Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. 32 count overdyed linen from Picture This Plus in 'Fog'. DMC Threads. Frame by Q-Snap. John James platinum needle, size #26. Stitcheh Kitteh by God. :)

Here is a pic of the original fairy:

I am hoping I get her done by time time Halloween rolls around, but yanevaknow....

Hope everyone is having a good day today out there in cyberland. And remember: keep that sense of humor. It's critical!
