A finish and some feathers

I finally got back to stitching after about a month. I can't wait for April to be over, exactly 2 weeks after my pap died, my father in law died.

On a brighter note, I finished my first mill hill kit. I didn't really like the perforated paper, but I did enjoy stitching this, and especially adding the beads. Next time I think I will stitch it on evenweave.

Anyone who has stitched this or has this will notice that I left out the background mountain and stuff at the bottom right. I simply disliked it and felt it took away from the owl. The kit was also missing one color the brown, which I disliked the color so I picked my own brown.

 

 

I worked a bit on Earthdancer as well. I was able to stitch the wisp Of hair and the feathers at the top of her head.mnext time I hope to complete her face.

 

 

 

 

 

He’s gone

 

My pap died on good Friday. My mom, brother, aunt, uncle, and cousins all met in Pa. Last Tuesday. The funeral was a week ago today. It was unbearably heart wrenching.

I don't really have anything else to say about it right now. It's too hard.

 

 

She has hair

I completed the hair on Earthdancer this week. I'm quite pleased with it. Wow what a lot of hair. Next time I hope to fill in most of the remaining stitches on this page.

 

 

Up next week though is Dragonflies whisper. Yay. I can't wait.

Last up is a new small. Last month I finished mr. Monster, this month I started my first mill hill kit- night owl. I'm not sure I like the perforated paper. I hate stitching in hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also I finished up mr. Monster. My son picked the finish. I wanted to add a bow to hide the seam but he didn't so…

 

Don't mind the pink hook. It won't come off the door without tearing the door.

 

Question of month. If money weren't an object what would be on your stitching bucket list.

 

I would have all the chatelaines if money weren't an object. I am in love with them.

 

My favorite week-HAED week

Last week was my favorite project to stitch lately. Dragonflies whisper, my HAED. I am getting close to another page finish. Then I have a page this is a single column wide. That is it for the top row. I can't wait to start the second row, that is where things really take off.

 

Here is my where I left off last time,

 

 

Here is where I left off after a great stitching week.

 

As you can see I am off a half row somewhere. I will make it up in the next column and all will look fine.

 

 

Earthdancer

I stitched Earthdancer last week. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked. Not bad for only 3 days stitching. I still love this piece.
