I was supposed to be working on Japanese Garden- the last crane, which is done over one. However, I had a huge mental block, and I didn't want to do it. Something about the over one stitching. Ugh! So, out came Strawberry House by Little House Needleworks. It was a cute and fast stitch.
Then I tried working on Japanese Garden again. Still no luck. This time I started Elizabeth by Mirabilia. A little back story about this new start. My nieces came to visit me last month for my birthday. My 8-year old niece saw the Nora Corbett pixies hanging on the wall and said she liked them. I was immensely pleased and promptly asked if she wanted me to stitch one for her. I showed her my stash of Nora Corbett and Mirabilia patterns, and she picked out Elizabeth.
After working on Elizabeth for a bit (I will post a progress pic when I have a little more done), I finally dragged Japanese Garden back out and finished the last crane with the help of Pride and Prejudice-I listened to the audiobook. I am so happy that last crane is done. It should be smooth sailing from here :)
This weekend I will be attending the Mirabilia Minion Retreat in South Carolina. It should be lots of fun, and hopefully I will get a lot of stitching done. I will be working on Elizabeth, and I am going to start Water Lily. Below is my shirt I ordered :)
