Got My Act Together

You'll be happy that I've finally made a decision on Miss Snow Fairy. I've decided to go with my original idea and have stuck with the DMC 712 for the white. I'm still going to do it 1 over 2, since I tried stitching a bit with 2 threads and didn't like the heaviness of it. I am wanting a soft, delicate look for this chart and the one thread will achieve it I feel. Thanks to all who gave me their thoughts. It was lovely to get some input on it.

Miss Snow Fairy - 5 December 2009

I have done most of the border, just the top part to go. I am so looking forward to see how this one will stitch up in the end. I'm sure I'll be really happy with it. The design is so cute.

While I was stitching last night I watched Titanic on TV. I hadn't seen it for a while and it was lovely to watch it again. When it got to the end, of course, I was in tears. The cats were wondering what was wrong with me. :)

Well, back to work again tomorrow. My how the weekends go so fast!

Well it's going to look lovely! A soft look will be perfect for it. Might even be tempted to copy you ;-) xx

I like your replacement of threads, Jane. I hope that now when all doubts behind, the embroidery will go faster. And cats... Cats feel us very well!

Your choice (DMC 712) is good, I find your work very nice and soft. Our week-ends go fast too ! I haven't enough time to do all I want to do...
Have a nice week.

Loved catching up on all your stitching! Thanks for the beautiful Christmas music this morning. It's Sunday morning here in the USA, quiet, and snowy and the music on your blog was just what hubby and I needed at the moment! Your photos and stitching are, as always, just fabulous!

So glad you decided on the one strand of floss. It's looking beautiful! I like the lacy look as well.
I took my BBB in to be framed on Thursday. I couldn't find the molding that it was originally framed with, and ended up with a pretty silver frame. I'll show pictures when I get it back.
Yes, the weekend has flown by! I hate that! Back to real life tomorrow.
Take Care, and hugs.
