Happy Thursday! I only work 4 days and then I have a 3 day weekend for Thanksgiving here in Canada! Woo! I've been playing too much World Of Warcraft and not stitching as much as I'd like, but I do have an update!
As you can see, Weezi is helping me out by keeping my lap warm and adding exotic fibers to my work.
Happy with the chunk I got done today. :) Hopefully I can keep up the pace! I was bad and ordered the other fairy she released last month because I don't have enough to do already. Plus Traditional Stitches was having a 20% store wide sale.. so yeah. That was what did it for me. :)
Since I finished something, I went ahead and bought yet another pattern and the stuff to kit is because I'm totally a fast stitcher and I've earned new stash, because I finished something, right? That's how that works?
Even after I told myself I wouldn't spend any more money on Stash and work with what I have. At least I resisted the PtP sale this year! I almost did put in an order but when I went through the site, all the colours I chose were colours I had previously bought. So yay for me? Also I swear they get compromised every year with their credit card orders because the two years I put in an order, my card details were stolen. Other people mentioned that happening as well.
Oh, that last post with the floss toss was for some help I was getting with picking the fabric. I went with the second picture after having some help with the ladies on the 123stitch board. And when I say ladies I mean 2 people gave their opinion when I listed what fabric I had on hand, and on…
I got some stitching done! Hurray for me! Look at Bloom Collector now, she has an ARM!
Last week I took Emma to the vet to get her teeth cleaned and she ended up getting 4 teeth pulled. This is her after the ordeal
She was still looped up on anesthetic in this picture and none too happy. She tried barking the very next day and whimpered right after because it hurt! my poor baby! She went to the vet this morning to have her post dental checkup and he said she was fine to eat hard kibble again, which she really appreciated. She was getting sick of softened food haha.
Next up is the stash I bought, which arrived today all packed up nice and separate so I didn't have to go figuring out what DMC went with what pattern!
Much pretty. Very shine! These were ordered from Traditional Stitches here in Canada.
And last but not least, I had a VERY BAD Thanksgiving Weekend. We are talking brought to literal tears and my poor Nursing Supervisor and Scheduler had to hear me blubbering in my car …
Since my last barely visable picture, I have finished miss Gardenia's dress, the lower portion anyway, and have started on her arms!
All the empty spots are where the beads are going to go. That dress was kind of sort of tedious to work on. Especially that last colour in the middle, the off white or whatever it's supposed to be. I am trying to get this one knocked out soon becaaaauuse I may or may not have ordered Nora Corbett's Black Forest Pixie Blossom Collector. I couldn't resist.. she's pink. very PINK. Hopefully I have a fabric that'll be nice with her. I'll do a floss toss or two. I might even have a PtP fabric that'll work. We'll see!
In other news, my bed is better dressed than I am these days!
And there is a reason for that! I finally started taking my health way super srs and have lost 35 pounds! I have a lot more to go, but that's a great accomplishment. I don't want to buy new clothes so mine …
