Woo Hoo, all three of my ongoing projects have updates!! First is going to be my Micro Mini 2. I know I am going so slow on it, but I carry it to work with me most of the time, there just isn't any time to take it out and work on it! I have finished and beaded the center, maybe it will pick up in speed with the rest. I would like to finish it because I did sign up for Micro Mini 4, love those colors!
Next up is my Chinese Garden. Okay. I have been having the biggest problem with Japanese Sea not being dyed aqua throughout. I ended up ordering from 123stitch, and it was worse than the one from ECC's kit. After wanting to yank the whole thing off my scrolls, yeah I was steaming mad and still smoking, I looked down at my Hummer's yarn and what do I see but Tropical Sea from Gloriana looking back at me!! I love this color, so on it goes in replacement of the junk I received. I foresee me substituting everything from Thread Gatherer from now on.
I have now become stuck at the backstitching. UGH............... I can't seem to go forward on the gold backstitching and then I looked after the specialty stitches and there was a lot of black backstitching. What!?! I don't even think it specified the thread, I think it may be the despised EdMar. I will have to reread it to check on the thread again.
And last but not least, my shining glory that I hope to finish by the end of next month, my Hummingbird Sparkly Garden!! I have actually finished the top border with the flowers above the border. Look at my little baby Hummers on each side of the flower, so cute!! I will work my way down the sides and the bottom, then onto the thousands of beads.
I have a hankering to buy a HAED while they are on sale for 30% off. I really want Angel of Mine and QS Frost Moon and QS Winter Wings. I am not sure if I will actually get them since I have so many Chats I have and want to do, but at I have been looking at Angel of Mine for months, and one day I would like to work on it.
Welp, Happy Stitching this week!! I hope to overcome my mojo block from backstitching.
