May 12, 2012:
I have been working on Madonna of the Garden for the past couple of days. I love her on this fabric.
Today I went to a few lawn sales looking for chapter books for my son and I picked up 16 boxes of Iris thread (24 skeins in each box) for $5.00. Not sure what I'll stitch with them, but couldn't pass them up for the price.
I think I've decided to put The Bead Fairy by Nora Corbett on the scroll rod I freed up. This will be the 4th of the stitching fairies that I've done in the series of 6. I plan on stitching all of them. The Stitching Fairies are quick easy patterns and will be a good one to tackle when I need a break from Madonna of the Garden.
These are the three that I've finished - one I even managed to get framed. I hope to eventually have all 6 framed and hung in a grouping by my fireplace.
