Did you hear the extremely loud thud? Yes, I have fallen off my 50 project challenge. I could no longer resist. I just put a nice dent in the old credit card. I could no longer resist the Alphabet Fairies or the Pixies!!! I will continue to work on what I have here but with all the new patterns out I don't think I will have the will power to resist. DH is going to give me the Celtic Garden Mystery for my birthday anyway, he knew I wouldn't make it!!!

And speaking of my DH, he just found out that he made Chief this year!! Yeah!! For those who aren't military this is a very nice promotion for him. So the next six weeks or more is spent in training, fund raisers, community service etc. I told him my gift for not really seeing him for the next 6 weeks (he is going to be so busy with initiation) is my cross stitch order!!LOL I have to justify falling off the wagon somehow!!!

Have a great week I will be posting Celtic Spring progress at the end of the week.

Long Overdue Updates

Here are some long overdue updates. Life has been crazy around here. School is ending and a dance recital is coming up and it has been way too nice to spend time indoors!

Here is finish 8 of 50. This is Halloween Fairy by Nora Corbett Designs. She is stitched on Silkweavers 28ct. Jamaica Sunset. She is stitched with the threads from the kit.Sorry about the photo my camera started to act up.

This is finish 7 0f 50. This is Birth Sampler Bless by Sisters and Best Friends. It was done on the recommended fabric, 28ct. Miracle Mint with the recommended threads DMC and Weeks Dye Works. I am going to finish this as a flat fold I think.

This is finish number 6 of 50. This was a freebie from Laura J. Perin Designs called Four Leaf Clover. I still haven't decided how I am going to finish it though.

Here is Celtic Spring after the first week SAL in June. I started with her and the dress. I think that is were I slow down with these. I still have to finish Autumn. I have just her dress and the beading to do. I hope to finish her this summer!!

Here is Fairy Moon after the June SAL. Her wings are almost done! Then I can move on to that dress!!!

I think that is it for now. I am off to work on the UFORR that I currently have.
Thanks for looking.

I'm still here and Fairy Moon update

No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. Though my SAL partners my have thought so!!! It has been very hectic around here this past month or so.

I didn't stitch on Celtic Autumn this month but I will get a picture up from April. We start Celtic Spring in June. I am going to fit Celtic Autumn into my rotation somewhere so that I get her finished soon.

Here is Fairy Moon from April. I will get an updated picture for this month up after this week is up.

I did manage to get a baby sampler finished but not Halloween Fairy. She has one wing to go. Poor thing has been waiting for months to be finished. I hope to get her done soon also!!

My husband was away in Virginia for a month and was kind enough to go LNS searching for me. Once he is unpacked I will get a picture of my new presents up. He also gave me a gift certificate to ABC Stitch for Mothers day. I will post a picture of those when they arrive. I am still working on the 50 project challenge. I didn't count my new gifts towards the challenge since they were part of my original rules on gifts and gift certificates!

Thanks for looking,
