Yule fairy page 3 FINISH

This is beautiful in real life. Page 3 was finished this morning while the kids ate their breakfasts. I was so close to finishing it last night but I was so tired I could bearly see. Please excuse the hoop marks. Tonight I will be gridding up the next page, but I cant decide to do the left hand page so she has a full face and wing or to move down to the page underneath and then I will have the full length and most of her dress will be done. so hard to choose!

Dress part 1 finished

The colours in this is just amazing! The photos don't do it any justice. When I brought the chart the dress looked grey and white. At the moment there is very little white  and I was surprised to find out that it has greens browns and creams and in this picture only about 25stitches of white.

Next I will be working on the chest ,shoulders and face. I will update when I have finished the page, which might be a while as it is very confetti heavy. I am so excited to get started on this bit. I almost started it before I had finished the dress.

Painfully slow progress & MY BIRTHDAY!!!

This little section has been painfully slow. I have worked hours and hours on it and still struggle to see any progress on the background. So I thought sod it and decided to move onto the wrap that's very nicely draped over her arm. Now I have to go back and do the couple of very annoying stitches I missed. It will only take me a few minutes to finish them but to be honest I really cant be bothered..... Someone give me a kick up the butt!

In more positive news ITS MY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!! Im now 25 years old ,admittedly I do feel like im 75years old. Im off for a coffee with my mum and one of our friends.

I stitched...finally!

I finally managed to stitch. Since my last update I had to have a unexpected operation. The operation itself was a day case, which went well. The only problem was while coming round from the anaesthetic I bit through my lip. From the front to the back. By the time I had left hospital that night it was infected.
Over the next few days I couldn't eat and slept constantly. My face swelled up. I had a fever, couldn't concentrate, shivers and was constantly dizzy. I ended up down A&E. Dehydrated and weak from not eating. I fell asleep in the waiting room. The first time I have slept in public since I was a child, I was so embarrassed! I had a raging infection and have been given Antibiotics.
Things are a lot better now. I can eat almost normally and all the swelling has gone. I can finally concentrate again and Im safe to look after the kids again!

Now I can concentrate I can stitch!
Im loving how this is coming together. You can see where her hair is. Her boobs are there and I can just make out where her arm is. The reds in here is beautiful. I think I will work on the background when I have finished the little bit of red left. Then it will be Her body to do. Looking at the chart is is a confetti bomb! Its going to take me ages to do but I know it will look amazing!
