Friday morning I finished up the model for Karen, and got it in the mail. Now I have a very short window of "for me" stitching time, because Karen already has my next project ready to be mailed to me. So I decided to start Nora Corbett's "Faerie Winter Dream", which is in the Jan. 2013 issue of Cross Stitch & Needlework magazine. I chose a Silkweaver solo on opal Belfast to stitch her on, because I thought it looked very wintry and icy:
The pattern calls for two colors of Caron Wildflowers, but I'm using Waterlilies, instead, as I didn't like the thought of the texture difference. The beading on this piece is going to be gorgeous; I'm already looking forward to getting to that part!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving, with lots of stitching time after the big meal!
