WIPs At Last

Finally, a few pictures to share of my currently WIPs and a few finished objects. This is Teresa Wentzler's Woodland Fairy. I started it last June and finished it in early October. I loved working on this piece. It is destined to become a keepsake pillow for my friend's daughter born in Feburary. The only thing I left out from the pattern was the frenchknots. I've been stitching for over 10 years and I still can't do a frenchknot to save my life. All well, maybe someday. As included in my post today, current pictures of Mirabila's The Dreamer, and Stoney Creek's Confetti Clown. I have made the promise to myself that I will finishe Confetti Clown before starting my HAED, once they arrive. I will be severly tempted to start as soon as it arrives, so I'm trying my best to finish it now.

Thank you for the kind comments!! I am so happy that some one is reading my posts. I truely do appreciate your kind words. I have come to the realization the last few days that I will be much better off. I will deserve so much more. And he certainly does not deserve this continued power over me! :)) I will survive as the song goes.

I am Still Breathing

Last month was unbelieveable stress and chaotic for me, hence no blog update. I have now moved, staying with friends until/if my parents can renovate my old bedroom. I am painfully single. I still love him, I miss him desperately, but I have not heard from him at all in the week and half since we went our separate ways. His goodbye that days was less then half assed. Obviously my continued love is in vain. Hopefully I will be able to move on soon. I deserve better. I certainly do no want to be alone for the rest of my life. I definitely want at least one child and I'm not getting any younger.
Ah well, on too my stitching news. I have put The Dreamer aside for the moment to work on Confetei Clown from Stoney Creek. I have stitch in once before. It was my first large project on Aida which isn't saying much as it is only 7 by 11 inchs approximately. I am enjoying it as much this time as the last. I have also just purchased my first Heaven and Earth Designs patterns. They certainly will not be the last I purchase. I can see me going exclusively to these designs. The details and colours used these designs as well as the complexity seem to suit my stitching style completely. And the fact that they are all fantasy designs does not hurt at all either.
Well, I will post pictures as soon as I can. Updated pictures of my 3 current projects. I have promised myself to finish at least one of the 3 before I start one of my HAED designs.
