Rain, Rain go away....

Hello! I have a finish to report. I finally finished Wild Fairy Lights. I stitched it on 28ct Wichelt Babble Brook with GA Midnight. To give the inside of the wings a little sparkle I used Kreink blending filament 032.

I love stitching this design, now I have to finish the series, lol. If anyone is interested in trading charts, email me. I do keep all my BOAF though.

Wednesday, I was so excited to start a SAL with Lizzy and Sharon. We are stitching Salem Sisters by Plum Street Samplers. I am using the recommended fibers which are 36ct Autumn Gold and Crescent colors: Bramble bush, Black Coffee and Wisconsin Woods. The only progress I stitched was the pumpkin

So I might have a thread change, we will see. I did take a pic of the chart, but the glare from the cover was terrible, I will post a pic next time. Wednesday cant come fast enough :)

Oh yeah! I do have something kinda of funny to share with you. When I showed my DD and DH my finished Fairy. My DH was very serious when he saked me, " What is it a flying monkey?" Men!!!! My DD laughter forever and is still chuckling over it. It will always be a conversational piece. But come on a Flying Monkey?? And he also thought her bangs were horns. Do any of you have a hubby like mine? lol. Thats awhole other blog, lol. With that said I will leave you with a smile on your face. Thanks for all the kind comments and inspiration.

Have super great weekend!

Happy Stitching All.

Ranae that really did make me laugh out loud! I think your fairy looks great...not like a monkey with horns. That is too funny though. Men eh?!

Your finish is really pretty. Half the time I'm stitching my DH has no idea what it is I'm stitching ;)

Ranae, my first visit to your blog was delightful! And yeah, I have a husband like that, lol! Your fairy is amazing, and you did a great job with the Kreinik!

I'm already loving your SAL piece! That fabric is perfect, and now I'm going to have to see if I can find a pic of the chart. Love the pumpkin!

Flying Monkey, indeed. I have a hubby like that, his interest in my stitching is how much money I spend. Your finish is gorgeous regardless, great idea to use kreinik in the wings.

Men always have trouble figuring out what a stitched piece is. I know several men that cannot read the Hinzeit mini-block pieces where thee letters go up and down. It is a hoot as to how clueless they are.

Your finish is so nice!!!
The Krenik is a lovely touch. I love Bling.
What do they know anyway.

Your finished fairy is so pretty! Love the wings. Men...UGH!! All that beautiful work and they can dash our spirits in one doofus minute of distraction from tv!! I'm sorry Ranae. Just chalk it up to a guy who's watched too many Wizard of Oz segments!! :o
Hugs,
Deb
