Before starting the monthly goal

During this week, more precisely on Tuesday and Wednesday I've worked on Dragon Fae, and manage to complete almost two vertical rows, and now the tip of the faery wing and a part of the dragon horn are starting to show. I'm tent stitching the background (it really is fast) and doing the fairy and dragon on full cross-stitching and I can already see it popping from the background, unfortunately is a too small area to be visible on the picture.

Also, I started doing the freebie "Flower Fairy" from DMC, that came with the world of cross stitching, that a friend, Jenny, kindly sent me, and I'm really pleased wirh the progress I'm really enjoying it.  Here are the photos after 1 night stitching and after two night stitching.

I hope you like it.

One small finish

Hi everyone,

I know I haven't been posting for a bit, but I have my parents over so I don't have much time on the pc, and I must confess neither at home, since I'm showing them the beautifull landscapes of Ireland :).
Any way I managed to finish a small key ring for an exchange. It's really small, but I think it's so cute that I might do one for me as well...
And of course here are the pics. - front and back:
Hope you like them

Table Cloth - 11.04.2011

Ok I know I promised more progress on Jasmin, but on Saturday night I realized my mum is arriving to visit me next Friday and I want to have a decent progress on her table cloth to show her. So I decided I would focus on the table cloth this week. On Sunday I held a Cross-stitch meeting at my place so it was the perfect moment to grab the table cloth and keep stitching it and I managed to finish the first corner yesterday :). Now only more three corners to go and the centre piece. Yay...

And here is the pic of course:

DMC - Jasmin 07/04/11

As I promised myself I've focused on Jasmin and although I haven't stitched half of the design, I have finished the 2 bottom pages (I'm not considering the backstitch because some lines are still missing) of the 4 pages that make the chart. So I've finished the sepia part (I'm doing the sepia version because I like the effect of it more) and I've started the color part with the blue background. I know the pic is not perfect but you can already see some color. And I promise I'll post a better pic as soon as I reach the 50% stitching done mark.

DMC - Jasmin

After finishing the 1s page on QS Believe I decided to change for something "lighter" (with less confetti basically). And I remember I hadn't work on Jasmin for a while. Therefore I pulled it back again and I made quite a progress in only two days. It gets really fast to stitch when one doesn't have o change the thread colour every two squares xD
And for you to be able to see the progress here is the before and after picture. I'll keep working on it for at least one more week so I'm counting with more progress on it.


Hope you enjoy it!
