Red Riding Hood Update!

I took a break from Tahiti and black work turtles to finish up Red's skirt. It was very refreshing. :D She is pretty amazing...the colors are vivid its hard to get that to show. Today I will get back to Tahiti. Though I am tempted to work on Faerie Winter Dreams. I am almost there! I will pick up a Nora design soon I think. I ordered the chart and supplies for Sirens Song so hopefully will have it next week. I splurged and ordered a Caribbean Blue Jobelan...from Wichelt or something. Not a private type hand dyed. But I think it will be beautiful for her! Thanks for looking!

More Tahiti!! :)

I have worked really hard to get this far. I had an unexpected day off work and pretty much stitched, all day. Currently I am working to finish off the blue circle so I can move on to the shells, turtles and fruit ornaments. Lots of work still! I hope I can get finished before part 2 comes out. I love the new Nora Corbett mermaid, the pixie sized one! I ordered her and I hope I can stitch on her. I have lost my mojo to work on Nora's stiff at the moment, hopefully she will bring it back. I love her hair, and the colors. She is a gorgeous little thing!! But Tahiti remain priority because I really really want to stay caught up all year on it. Fingers crossed!! Thanks for looking! <3

Tahiti and Red Riding Hood

Since I am doing the DMC suggestions from Martina, plus a few DMC color variations and Thread Worx choices of my own, I have my stuff and am working away! I got the Silk Lame's and Treasure Braid today and they are gorgeous!! I am so glad I splurged and got them...I am using 32 opalescent Jobelan for this. I was pretty set for it from the start, I didn't have to think about fabric options to much. :) And here is Red... She is coming along beautifully. I had to order more of the Buckeye Scarlett and pecan Pie (you will need 2 of each of these) and they came in with the bulk of my Tahiti materials. She is a great project to take to work or other places since she is easy to work on with so few colors. Plus, she looks impressive I like to show her off. Thanks for looking! Have a good weekend!
