Birds in the Nest - I finished doing all the outlining of the bird boxes. I decided to pin the layers together instead of basting them. I swear that if I had drank any liquid I would have leaked it everywhere through all the pin pricks . There was also a lot of bleeding happening. All I have left to do now is ditch stitch around the runner and put the binding on.
Blue Bonnet got 3.2 hrs and I have broken the back of this piece. I am backstitching as I am going. I love how it is coming together. See pic in entry below.
Blue Pearls Mermaid QS - artwork by Elaine Cox and design by HAED. I just adore the colours in this piece and cannot wait until it moves up to become the focus QS in the Rotation.
Green DragonflyQS artwork CCKuik designed by HAED. I managed 4.5hrs - not a huge amount of time but her mouth is nearly complete and she is looking lovelier than ever.
Lastly is Ocean's Bounty artwork Linda Ravenscroft and designed by HAED. I am within spitting distance of finishing Page 15/20. That will leave only 4 1/2 pages to stitch.
She is just unbelievably beautiful and I cannot wait to finish her. I am so glad that Linda Ravenscroft is letting HAED do the charting again. There are 2 new pieces that are devine called Blue Mask And Pandora's Box
I also got some cross stitch & craft magazines - more that I should have......hehehe.
