Miss New Year's Fairy is finished.  I have now stitched the entire Holiday Fairies Series!!!!

I'm excited that I have finished an entire series of 6 fairies.  I am now working on trying to finish the Stitching Fairies, another series of 6.  I have already completed 4 and started a 5th one today - The Linen Fairy:

I got a lot of stitching done today and also took a break to go see a movie with my husband and older son.  My Mom stayed home with little Christopher.  We went to see Snow White and the Huntsman.  We enjoyed the movie, I definitely recommend it.  Tomorrow we may go see Brave so that the little one can go to the movies as well.

Here is my progress on Miss New Year's Fairy, I hope to finish her tonight.  Not sure what I am going to start next.  I should go back to Madonna of the Garden, but I think I'm in the mood for something else quick.  Maybe one of my two remaining Stitching Fairies or maybe a Muse.

I haven't posted in awhile.  It took some time to close out the school year and get my house back in order.  My Mom is here visiting from Cooperstown, New York - the boys are super excited, which means some more stitching time for me.

I have a couple of Mystery SAL's coming up.  I signed up for the Lizzie Kate Halloween Mystery sampler, which will come in three installments, starting late this month, early next month.  I also signed up for the Passione Ricamo Mystery Fairy SAL - which will last an entire year, starting in July.  I'm missing a lot of the supplies for that one though so I will need to place an order pretty quickly.  The Lizzie Kate Mystery sampler will ship with the supplies.  I'll post updates on those as soon as I receive and start stitching them.  My goal is to have each installment stitched before the next one arrives - we'll see if I can manage to keep up with that and still work on some of my other projects.

Nora Corbett/Mirabilia has come out with a new design The Dressmaker's Daughter that I have fallen in love with.  It has tons of bling though so it will have to wait until I can get all the beads.  This one is definitely high up on my wish list.

The Easter Fairy is finished.  The only fairy in the Holiday Fairy Series that I haven't stitched yet is Miss New Years Fairy and she arrived in the mail yesterday, so she will be my next start.

Only 4 more days with students and 3 teacher work days and I will be off for the summer.  I am starting to build my stitching list for the summer.  I definitely want to finish the Holiday Fairy Series and finish the Stitching Fairies series (I have two left in that series to finish).  I also want to finish up The Madonna of the Garden.  I'm not sure what is next on the list.
