Nice long weekend

We had a great weekend.  Nothing really planned except for me to stitch on Sat.

Saturday was the first official day for outside stitching at A&T for the summer.  Had 4 long buffet tables set up by morning’s end – quite a few of us showed up to enjoy a wonderful day of stitching.  Then I went to a friends house for dinner and more stitching. 

Other than that Ive been working on getting as much vitamin D as my body can handle without getting burned.  I have a nice light burnishing (for a gal with creamy white skin can get) and no burn :o)  I was very careful and made sure I didnt stay out too late and had 45 sunscreen on – all weekend long.

Here is my weekend’s work – My friend Elizabeth is working on Nora’s Letters M and basically challenged me to see if I could finish N.  I came close :o)

 Nora's N 5-25-09

Nora's N 5-25-09a

The faerie wings are complete and now I need to finish some back stitching on her dress, back stitching on the N, fiddly-bit back stitching and beads.

Tomorrow Tanglewood comes out again – just in time for work and Ink Circle SAL at A&T tomorrow nite


  1. That fairy is very cute. BTW, sunscreen blocks the body's ability to create vitamin D. Better drink fortified milk!

  2. You came really close! Don't cha love a challenge?

  3. Sounds like a wonderful stitching time!

    I have that fair, pale skin too. We took the motorcycle out Saturday morning and my arms got a slight burn...completely didn't think about sunscreen in my excitement to go! I won't make that mistake again!

  4. What a wonderful weekend you've had. I love the N and wish that I could stitch as quickly as you.

  5. the fairy is cute. I am thinking of doing an initial one for my sister.

  6. I didn't think it was a challenge, more just a playful poke! ;)
