I am posting these two days together as although I did do 2 hrs work on the Chrysanthemum Fairy on Day Seven of working on her, half an hour was spent frogging so I only made a little progress on the flower bottom right, see photo below.
On Day Seven instead of continuing with my fairy I spent the evening in the living room.When I am working on a large project I do that in my bedroom where my workstation is set up and also there is no chance of either Lily ( tri-colour border collie) or Daisy (tortie and white cat) getting near my work and leaving their hair on it. So I spent the evening stitching on one of my UFO's the Just Nan Winter Humbug, whilst watching re-runs of Special Victims Unit. Below are photos of my starting point and where I got to after a couple of hours stitching. I love Just Nan designs as they are so delicately pretty, very feminine.
Anyway I digress back to what I stitched whilst watching the TV. I am in the Ornament 2013 SAL and I have chosen to stitch Santa's all year. So this month I have decided to work on the Papa Noel Pendant from Faby Reilly designs. First I have to say that Faby gives the most excellent finishing tutorials for all her designs. Below is my starting point and where I got to after a couple of hours. I don't think I will complete the whole ornament this month but as long as I get the Santa bit completed I will be happy.
