What's wrong with this picture?
First off, thank you! They are adorable, aren't they?! Thanks to San for the SAL so I went and hunted those little darlin's down to stitch. :o)
So I started my Winter Beauty Princess by P Ricamo the other day, and so far ... I'm hating it. It HAS to be the fabric. It's 28 ct. Reflections by Silkweaver. Lovely fabric. Just a pain in the ass to stitch on. I just am not liking it at. all.
I think I figured out why the QM went so fast, I barely had to think about stitching on it. (16 ct.) I started this one on 16 ct and stitched almost the entire sash in about 4 hrs. (But it wouldn't fit, not large enough piece o' fabric, damn it.) This is 6 hrs on the 28 ct. and only about 1/4 of the sash. It seems like I have to search for each hole. And it can't be just me, but I can see every time my little white x's aren't perfect. I don't put this much effort into my relationship dang it. :o)
I'm still waiting on my fabric for my Winter Queen to show up. arrgh. Been a little naughty on ebay as well. Got this dramatic little bit o' fluff in the mail yesterday. Sugar Maple's "Zeus" in 16 ct. I just liked it. And now I got all kinds of bids out too.
I feel another 12 step program coming on.
Anyway, happy weekend all!
