Spring Faerie HD

Here she is! This one definitely took longer than the other two. I think it just had more confetti to it. I also didn't preblend my floss on this one. Oh, and there's Warhammer Online, which we just started playing....

So to talk about recent stash acquisitions... When I went to Ginger's this past weekend, I picked up Bewitching Cross Stitch. She said she orders one copy at a time, and they keep disappearing! So I obliged and made this one disappear. I also picked up an embroidery pattern, Zelda's Fancy Hat. Matt spotted it, and he knows how much I like Halloween items. I haven't done embroidery in a long time, but I just have to do this one. I'll need to go shopping for some black fabric. Also, today a pattern came in from an eBay auction, Quilted Bear by Just Nan. I have been looking for this one for a long time, and now I have it!

What to start next...I may work on Lady of Shalott or one of my other WIPs. We'll see what bubbles to the surface.

I am so glad you were able to get a hold of Quilted Bear! :D

And Spring Faerie is stunning, congrats on such a huge and lovely finish!!!!

I love Bewitching Cross Stitch, want to stitch the peacock from the Eastern Promise sampler for a friend, but as far as Zelda's Fancy Hat is concerned, if you stitch it, you'd better be modelling it for us too! ;)

Gorgeous! I'm stunned by how fast you stitched this - it would have taken me years!
Congrats on both your amazing finish and your pretty new stash :D

I'm about 1/2 way through Zelda's Hat. I'll try to go through my notes (I took it as a class) and pass on some hints.

Love Zelda's Fancy Hat. I have never seen that before, and I may just have to get one of my own :)
