A New Years Resolution?

It's just struck me (again) how badly I have neglected this blog. The fact that I still have ANY followers at this point honestly boggles my mind! lol! I've taken for granted the fact that this is the one place on the whole World Wide Web that is really 'mine', where I can post about anything I like, am passionate about, or am intrigued by.

Since my last post, I have gone through at least 2 stitching slumps, a computer crash, I've had some medical issues which I am not prepared to elaborate on, and there has been some family drama. But, amidst all of that, I've had stretches of time where all I've wanted to do was sit and stitch. Of course, when you have responsibilities such as housework, trying to run a small Ebay store and cooking specially for multiple people with food sensitivities, you find that your time is not always so free to stitch as you'd like. I have been fortunate that amidst all of that, my stitching has not been completely neglected. I have a batch of pictures of all the finishes (except for beads) that I have completed since my last post. I admit that the closure of my Webshots account has caused a little frustration, but Photo- bucket will do the trick for now. :)

Are you ready?!!? Here we go!!

M'Lady & The Unicorn

Charlotte (Purple conversion)

Crystal Symphony (I finished the last 40% of her last year)

Enchanted Dreamer (Purple Wings Conversion)

Lilac Pixie (Without wings)

Waterlily (w/ longer hair)

Mediterraneo (Passione ricamo)

Crescent Dreams (Pink Blanket conversion with Rosebuds)

Bliss Fairy (Finished 1-27-13 - Purple Conversion)

As I usually explain when posting pictures, I am in no way opposed to beading/blinging up my pictures...LOL... but for now, a lack of finances and space are prompting me to wait on attaching the beads. It is far easier to store them this way, as I don't have to worry about crushing beads, or having to iron around beads later on. It will all come together in one graceful motion later on. :p

My newest stitching start is of Joan Elliotts' "Lady Bird". I am so excited! I have found what I believe to be the perfect fabric for her, and I can't wait to see it all come together! She is also my first JE project. :D

Here is a little snippit. Shhh... don't tell anyone! ;0

Toodles for now!
