Monday Update

Here it is Monday again. Thought I would pop in with a weekend update. Friday I reached the rocks on Selkie. So here she is finally with more than blue...
I literally said Wohoo out loud when I started the new section. What a not blue thread FINALLY?!? Of course the confetti stitching will slow me down but it will be so worth it in the end. Friday I also got exciting mail. My two FireWing Dragon designs that Jo forced me to buy haha. So of course I just had to start one. So Saturday I started Embers. Here is what she will look like...
I was hoping she would help show off my gorgeous fabric that I received from Heather and guess what...
It's PERFECT!!! Exactly what I hoped for. A gorgeous pattern but it's not covering up the fabric too much. I'm using DMC 550 over 1. The fabric is 28ct. I just LOVE how it's looking so far. Every stitch I just smile and Thank Heather for the fantastic giveaway she hosted.

I'm linking up to the Monday Stitchery Link Party. Stop on over to see what the ladies who check in have been up to.

Saturday our local festival was going on. Fred's Ham radio group walked in the parade. He offered to take us with him but being up at 5am wasn't something we wanted to do haha. But it was neat because we watched him on the TV since they televised the parade. Mom had fun going down to the festival to the flea market area. She found some goodies she couldn't live without of course. Jeremiah and me were just lazy. Felt good of course. Now it's a new week. Time to get some chores done. After these strong storms roll through. It's dark as midnight out right now at 10am.

  9. Great change of colour on Selkie :) Must be a welcome change!
    I totally think your dragon will look even better than the original stitched model. The fabric really is perfect for it and your choice of colour makes it stand out just really nicely. I can't wait to see this one grow!!
