WIP Wednesday Motivational Post

Not really much of an update, as I haven't felt much like stitching here lately. I injured my right hand at work (bruised it somehow) and it's been kind of a bummer, but whatareyagonnado? Between that and lacking the motivation, I just haven't done a whole lot. As it's the 28th of May today, I probably won't get her done before June. But hopefully by July :). I'm posting anyway to keep me motivated. 


Here is what I have done so far: 



Design: The Easter Fairy (Limited Edition kit)

Designer: Nora Corbett 

Fabric Used: 28 count linen in Spring by Picture This Plus from their Crystal (opalescent) line

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Baby Chick, Bella Rosa, Betty Bluebell, Blue Beatrice, Blueberry Tart, Bramble Bush, Fool's Gold, Sassy Brass, St. Bernard, Tufted Yellow, Wasabi, and Zach Black. Kreinik (#4) Braid in #3223 Ametrine

Bling Used: Mill Hill glass seed beads in size 11/0 #02010 Ice 



As of Wednesday, May 21, 2014:

I best be off. No chores to do today, so I may take a nap before going out on the motorcycle today. Before I leave, here is a picture I snapped last night at Red Rock National Conservation Area:




Hope everyone has a great week!
