Some New bits and Bobs and a Fairy Update

This last week has been a bit all over the place with Hubbies birthday taking place on Sunday, and us taking a day trip to Bovington to the Tank Museum.  I did however manage to get more of my fairy done and bought a few little bits and pieces :)

At first, I was not sure whether I like my fairy on the fabric (Heaven's Above - Polstitches), but now I think I do :) Here is my fairy so far:

I also picked up a few little bits and pieces that caught my eye. Here they are:

Cat Keychain with light pink stones (couldn't resist as I'm a cat lover)

I thought these were the cutest things I've ever seen, and just 50p each LOL

I'm working on a wedding sampler, and thought 2 of the rings would look nice to embellish it

Glitzy buttons, will look super on some biscornu's I hope to make soon lol

These are just C.U.T.E, not sure what to use them for yet, but I will use them :)

These are all the updates I have for now. I might not have many updates over the next couple of weeks as I have an iCMA due in on 12th July, and my TMA is due in on 14th July and I'm yet to finish the book i'm on lol.

Hope you have a great day, whatever you may be doing :) xXx

New Updates, and another new start :D

Hello again all. I thought I would give you all an update on the projects I currently have on the go and a new start (as of tonight).  Here are some pics of my HAED and Company of Wolves that I've not really done a great deal more on.

This is how my HAED looks as of 19th June 2011

This is my company of wolves as of 19th June

I've also made a little more progress on the wedding sampler that I started.  I made a little error on the flower in the corner, so will have to unpick that when I next get back to it.  Here is how it looks now

Most of the dark pink has to be unpicked as it should be green haha (will use a coloured chart from now on)

I have also started a new project.  The Summer Fairy by Joan Elliott (from the Ultimate Joan Elliott Collection).  I started this project tonight so here is my progress so far.

This is part of the wing

I hope you enjoy seeing my current projects progress and I hope to spend more time working on them in between doing assignments for Uni.

Until next time, have a great day and take care :)

A New Start

Well last night I didn't feel like stitching on my HAED, or my Wolves, so I decided to make a start on a wedding sampler for myself and hubby to celebrate our 7th Wedding Anniversary in March 2012 (Yes I know, it's a long way off, but with Uni, I can only do a little at a time).  Here is my progress after about an hour and half working on it last night

This morning, I also received my fabric ready to start the Summer Fairy by Joan Elliott (I just love her fairies, and one day will have the complete set of them hanging on my wall).

I may even start my Summer Fairy today at some point, and then rotate between all of my WIP's (Company of Wolves, HAED, Wedding Sampler and then Fairy lol).

Some New Goodies :)

Well today I have been feeling rather yucky, so to cheer myself up a little I popped into Hobbycraft for some stitching mags.

Whilst looking about, I found the magazine that I have been after since it came out....The Ultimate Joan Elliott Collection.  Needless to say, I'm already looking at which I would like to start first :)

I also picked up some little Swarovski Beads, which I think are super pretty :)

Swap Bot Exchange...All Crafters Craft Swap

I have recently taken part in a swap on Swap Bot where all who craft can exchange items.  This morning I received a lovely little package, and inside was this:

I absolutely love it :D It contains my favourite colours and has a very cute little T-bar closing :) Thank you so much to the person who sent it to me, Ahura :)

OM's Summer Bag Exchange

This month, a few members of OM took part in a summer bag exchange.  I would like to take this moment to say a huge thank you to Heather for sending me such lovely goodies and a super duper bag.  I cannot wait until I get a free bit of time so I can stitch the chart, it would look lovely next to my desk :D  Here are the goodies I received:

A new HAED update

In between doing Uni work and more reading as well as having the children home for half term, I managed to do a lot more on my HAED.  Here is my progress now, I have done nearly 5000 stitches on it so far :)

TUSAL 1st June 2011

I can't believe it has been a month since my last TUSAL update and I've not done a great deal of stitching.  Here is my TUSAL for this month :)
