Busy Beading

I've spent the last few days beading projects for the Australian Beading Magazine.
Maybe this afternoon I will get to sit down and do some stitching. I need to get on with it.

But I had a bad night last night. I didn't get to sleep until 3:30 am and then I woke up 3 times until 7am when my husband left for his bush fire brigade crew day. I didn't get up until nearly 10am and I'm still wacked. I'm not looking forward to tomorrow (teaching). There are only 8 days left now. Lets just hope I can get through them with some of my sanity intact for Christmas.

I started my Christmas shopping yesterday. But I'm beginning to doubt I'll do a Christmas themed stitch design this year. It's getting a bit late for that.

Wings Finished

A progress photo;
The magazine I mentioned yesterday (Handmade) is actually on sale now in Australia. My appologies for the incorrect information.

Fairy Cameo

Handmade magazine, Vol 29, No.9 (a gift giving special) has published my Fairy Cameo design.
I love the pretty sparkly, pink boxes the photographer used in the background. As you probably know by now, I'm a very girly girl.

The issue should be on newsagent's shelves next month.

I'm enjoying my chair. Thanks for the comments. I'm looking forward to spending at least 5 hours in it today working on the butterfly princess. I've nearly finished her wings and I'm about to move on to her face and bodice. Maybe I'll put up a progress pic tomorrow.

New Chair

I have a new chair for cross stitching in.
I got it yesterday at the schoo'ls funfair (in the white elephant stall0. It cost me just $10 and it's a lovely soft recliner. I can't believe my luck. The old recliner I was using was broken and didn't recline anymore. It's important for me to be able to adjust my seating position every now and then for my back and muscles because of my Fibromyalgia. So this is wonderful!!!

Butterfly Princess Progress

Just to let you know also, that the Embroidery and Cross Stitch magazine with Angel Moon in it is now on sale at newsagents.

I've been working hard on Butterfly Princess, and here's the progress I've made so far (around 22 hours)
This doesn't show the fabric very well - it's Stitches and spice, Peacock fantasy.
