First 2006 Finish!

Mirabilia's "The Christmas Elf Fairy" - started 29 Dec 2005, finished 3 January 2006. Stitched on "Evening Shadows" a Countrystitch Sparkles.

The photo hasn't shown the fabric well at all - it is more of a purpley blue, than the bright blue it looks on this photo.

This was a delight to stitch - I think the fact it was a Mirabilia and stitched up fast was half the fun - and she really is gorgeous, Rhiannon has already asked if she can have it (hmmmmm I don't think so! LOL).

We finished our doll quilts too - I forgot to take a photo of them, I'll do that in another post.

I DID stitch a wee bit on Rose Arbour last night as per my pre-determined rotation - I was hoping to finish the Elf earlier and have a bit more time - but I got a bit more of the greenery done. On to Celtic Summer today/tonight ...

I've just talked Kath ... and her and Katrina are planning an afternoon/evening of stitching and kindly invited me along - after a week of being cooped up with Mr DH who has been irritating the heck out of me (long story ...) ... I'm more than ready to escape the house and spend it with a couple of friends stitching! LOL

But first I have to do some soccer accounts - I've organised an auditor and need to get all the information to him - just need to update the last couple of months and finish some filing - and I'll be quite pleased to pass them on to someone else to tidy up. The someone else happens to be my future BIL which was very opportune - but I don't want to scare him off marrying my sister either! ROTFLOL

Hopefully I'll have an update of Celtic Summer tomorrow :)

Congrats for the Elf! It turned out beautiful. I stopped stitching mine before Christmas but seeing your Elf I want to finish mine immediately!

Argh! I've seen this too many times and your HD is the straw that broke the camel's back... I had a bad clicky finger attack and ordered the kit last night!!!
