WIP Wednesday – Yes, I still do stitch

My goodness, it has been ages and ages since I posted a WIP Wednesday update. To be totally honest, I’m stitching a little less now because if my darn elbow. It just doesn’t seem to want to get better, so need to take things easy. I plan to stitch until my dying day, but I’ll have to pace myself a little bit to make sure I can!

Right now I’m stitching away on two projects. The first is Halloween Fairy from Mirabilia, one of the limited edition Fairy Holiday Collection kits that was released several years back. I’ve borrowed the chart from a friend since (to be totally honest) I was too cheap to buy the kits when they first came out. Now I regret it, but what is done (or not done) is done.

Halloween Fairy, from Mirabilia (WIP)

She is, sadly, missing half her wing because I ran out of thread. Thanks to a very nice lady on the Canada trade group on Facebook, a new skein is on the way. Yay!

Candy Cane Stocking, from Dimensions (WIP)

I’m also working away on one more stocking, Candy Cane Santa Stocking from Dimensions. I’ll be honest, it isn’t getting as much attention as it should be because at this point I am pretty much over stockings. I know, I know. Push through and get ‘er done, right?

What else have I been up to? I’ll share some more in a day or two.

    Oh my goodness she is beautiful, I love the colors of her wings.
    I am pushing myself to do a Christmas ornament next after my Little Church is finished, it seems my mind only want to do Christmas stitching in the fall and winter.

    I love the fairy! I hope the thread arrives soon. I hope your elbow behaves itself and gets better soon.
