Happy New Year!

Now that the hustle and bustle of the Christmas period is over (phew!!!) it's time to get back to normal...or as normal as life will permit!

I have two designs that I have been working on for what seems like forever....and I'm determined to have them finished in the next few weeks....and now that it's written in black and white, I just have to get them done now :)

First off is the lighthouse design.....


...as you can see, Dimensions sent the extra thread needed to finish the cross stitching, so I have no excuse now! There's just a few cross stitches to complete and then the back stitching...not my favourite part, but it will be worth it!

Then project number two....Twilight Fairy....


...this one hasn't got much to be done either....but..... I've run out of one of the blue threads! I think that I may have used the wrong blue colour for some part of it (there are a few blues that are quite close to each other!) as I seem to have quite a bit of one blue thread left......arghhh....silly me! So, yes, I will be begging Dimensions again for some more threads! Thankfully their customer service department is really good.

So hopefully in the next few weeks, these designs will be upgraded form WIP's to finished items...woohoo!

Until next time....happy stitching!

They both look great! I didn't realize twilight fairy was a dimensions kit I thought it was an haed since they chart the same artist :). Great detail in it :)

Two stunning projects, can't wait to see them finished. It can be difficult to tell the difference between colours in the Dimensions kits, though sometimes you just end up with lots of a particular colour left over. In Elegance I have a big bunch of the main blue in her dress left and hardly anymore stitches of that colour to do.

Both gorgeous Rhona!
I hate when that happens, I have BTDT with floss...it's like finishing an IKEA dresser only to see that you have extra screws...
