The good news is I have another finish to share! Not quite in time for the end of the year because the beading took waaaaaay longer than I thought but I finished Raven! Last time you saw her I had only done the black so there are quite a few pictures to put in. I also have a lot of new stash that I got for Christmas so let's go!
Here's where you saw Raven last:
First I added some eggplant purple:
The final skin color:
So she took me a little longer than two weeks to finish but I was a bit obsessed with her. She still needs washed but for now she's put away. My plan is to finish all 12 and put them in the same size/kind of frame so I can display them all and have them look cohesive. I want to say I'll do it all when I'm done with all of them because they're all different sizes but it'll really be when I can afford it, which won't be for a LONG time. With my student teaching I'm going to be working without pay for 3 months and we're going to be looking to buy a house (finally!) after our lease is up in March. We'll probably have to live with my mother-in-law for a couple of months so we can save up for a down payment.
Anyway, I got a lot of new stash in a kind of last-chance binge. First off two of the things I got were presents from my mother-in-law for Hanukkah. I told you guys last time that I sent pics to her with a very subtle hint ;) But she got both that I wanted which are Dimensions Gold kits. The first is Fall Fairy:
The last thing I got was another piece of Aida for the next Pixie I do (they only had one silver sparkle one left) and a piece of gold sparkle for my new start. I still need to dye both of them but I'm not rushing it. Oh yeah my new start? ;)
That's all I have for now. I'll have a couple of new Needleminders to show when they come (I may have done some tipsy shopping on New Years Eve) but luckily it's only $7 with shipping. I deleted some of the ones I didn't absolutely need before she billed me luckily! Even then it was only like $25 I think but still!
I'm going to apologize in advance if I don't update in the next few months. I start my student teaching next Monday and will not be doing much stitching at all. The only thing I might work on will be the SAL. I have an hour long phone call every Tuesday as well as lesson planning, meetings every Thursday and creating a portfolio. I'm hoping to still read blogs in my off-time though as that's easier to me than stitching. Well not easier because I like to comment but less time-consuming in that I don't have to take everything out and set everything up. I can just grab my computer and go.
Thanks for listening to me ramble I hope you enjoyed the update! See you all later!
