Well thankfully after a week of horrid sleepless nights because it was just too too hot to sleep, the weather changed and cooled down to a much more comfortable stitching temperature from about Wednesday.
In fact it's been raining here all day today, rather pleasant after the sticky heat of last weekend. Perfect stitching weather in fact!
Last night I finished part 7 of the PR Mystery Sal - Under the Moonlight and here it is..
We are starting to see a few more features other than then border. Part 8 comes out next week and is worked under where part 7 was just stitched, so hopefully more features of our mystery subject will be revealed. I'm looking forward to trying to keep up with the Sal as the parts get bigger without neglecting my other WIP"s... gotta love a juggling act lol.
Now this week I also happen to have had a bit of a happy dance. Not the finishing a project happy dance but a happy one none the less.
Anyone that loves Nora Corbett/Mirabilia designs, knows how hard it is to get their hands on the OOP Tigerlily chart from Nora's Pixie Couture Collection.
I have been looking with no success for a while. I am a member of a facebook group for Australian stitchers to unload stash, and I decided on a whim to ask if anyone who had her was willing to part with her.
I wasn't expecting much success mind you. So you can imagine my delight when not only did someone have her but they were willing to sell her and for a very reasonable price too!! It just goes to show you don't know until you ask. She arrived in the mail yesterday.
It is a holiday weekend here in Australia as Monday is Australia Day. I am hoping for a cooler weekend than we had last weekend and to spend some time with family and also hopefully get back into working on Taj Mahal Mandala. Maybe I might also try and work out what fabric I will stitch Tigerlily on and when I am going to find time to squeeze her into my rotation.
Happy Stitching everyone,
