I had a case of startitis this IHSW weekend :) But that is ok, because it is my reward for suffering through a bout of vertigo last week. I finally started to feel normal this weekend and what a relief - I can eat and move around. Poor hubby had to do all the chores and take care of Mandy, our smart, rambunctious dog.

I wanted something a bit simple to work on this weekend. The thought of working on the peacock in Lady Hera with all the color changes did not appeal to me in my vertigo state. So, I started Evening Primrose by Nora Corbett as the pattern has large block of colors. The fabric is Crystal Meditation lugana by Picture This Plus. While I really like this fabric, the weave is tight, and the holes are hard to see. Below is my progress on Evening Primrose. It is all white stitching so far, and it does not show up real well in the photo (look closely), but you can see the sparkly fabric.

Since I did not care to work with the fabric for Evening Primrose much, I started Little Miss Sunflower by Little House Needleworks. The fabric is Sage jobelan, and it is much easier to stitch with :) I am going to alternate between these two patterns so I don't get too annoyed with Evening Primrose.

Lastly, I finished up Farm Fresh by Country Cottage Needleworks a week or so ago. It was a fun, cute stitch. I am not sure what is up with the photo, but the bottom left corner seems a bit faded. The colors look better on the right side.

Thanks for stopping by!

Princess Parade

I have a new finish: Princess Parade by Country Cottage Needleworks. I stitched this one for my three, adorable nieces :) My three-year-old niece, Olivia, loves princesses, and I thought this would be great for her. The yellow princess is even holding a little frog. Too cute!

Over the weekend I was not feeling well, and I spent a lot of time stitching. I worked on the peacock in Lady Hera. I will post a pic when I get a bit more done, but the colors are amazing. I also started Farm Fresh yesterday by Country Cottage Needleworks because I needed a new start :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
