Frosty Forest update

I have now completed seven parts of CCN's Frosty Forest, with two parts still to be released. Part seven was the last of the four house blocks, called Snowgirl's Cottage:

I'm glad there are only two parts left, as I find myself ready to be done with this design. ;) Here is the entire piece so far:

I also completed part three of the By The Bay Needlearts mystery SAL, which looks like this:

It is now ready for the embellishing, which Donna posted a few days ago on her blog. She embellished the heck out of it!! I'm currently working up the courage to try some of her suggestions--might be a while!

Meanwhile, I finally got the charts for Nora Corbett's new Bewitching Pixies, Gigi and Luna, and I had a fun day stash diving in my fabric bins to find the perfect witchy fabrics for them; I think I found a couple of winners. :) Gigi's is a Silkweaver solo on opal Belfast:

Luna's is Silkweaver's Odyssey on Belfast:

I've already started Gigi; she has a black cat with her, so she had to be first as I love black cats! I'm hoping she'll be a pretty quick stitch, so I'll have a lot to show in my next post.

Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend!


  1. Those are fabulous fabrics. I think I am going to try stitching these if I get some other projects finished. Your Frosty Forest is awesome!

  7. Your WIPs are beautiful, fabric choices too:).

  8. Don't feel down about having had enough of Frosty Forest - it's looking great and the stitching community is behind you to encourage you through the final two pieces. And as for your fabrics - WOW! They are gorgeous and really compliment your new projects. I look forward to seeing them started! :)
