Weekend Stitching

I have a thyroid problem and for a long time its been under control, but for the last 6 months or so it hasn't been and I've been really tired and my stitching has been kind of suffering a bit. Finally started new medication this week and I'm slowly starting to feel better. I got some quiet time Saturday and managed to not sleep it away LOL I got a good start on Kaye's RR. It will eventually be Mermaid of Atlantis.

And I worked a little more on Maria's M. I finally finished those evil wings. Now I just need to do all the backstitchy stuff and the beading. However, I just wasn't in the mood for that.

What I really wanted to do after all that was to start one of my (way too) many peacock patterns but I couldn't find fabric that was working with the patterns. So, I started Mirabilia's Circle of Friends. I'll post a picture of that tomorrow or so. I want to get several of the colors on the fabric before I get opinions on how the fabric is looking.

A Request

I need some Espresso Waterlilies fairly quickly. Either about a 18" length would be great or I could trade a skein of silk or something. Any help would be appreciated!

I've been stitching a little bit here and there. It's a really sucky picture, but it's good enough for ransom purposes I suppose lol

The fabric is actually Silkweaver's Mountain Rose. Maria picked it out herself. She wanted it on pink pink fabric she got. This is the 3rd Letter Fairy I've stitched and I have to say I really hate the wings on these things. I don't know what it is about them, but I just really don't like them.

I haven't been intentionally neglecting my blog. Summer + 3 kids = BUSY. Softball is FINALLY finally finally over. I couldn't handle anymore tournaments. Last week they had Cheerleading camp. Friday we had a birthday party then a cheerleading show. Then Saturday hubby took the girls swimming so I could clean the house...then just as I finished there was a huge plumbing crisis in the kitchen...water was everywhere. Ladies, I handled it all by myself without the aid of a plumber or a man LOL Go me! Sunday, church, lunch, another birthday party. That one ended up lasting 6 hours. Sitting in the South was what 95 degrees yesterday? I rarely drink but when the daiquiris came out I indulged. I'm a little hungover today. But I got to know my neighbors better, got caught up on the gossip and got invited to the friday night parties that my husband always spies on LOL So, I guess it was worth it.

I have been stitching a little bit. I've been working on Mirabilia's M. I just have the wings and the beads to do and I'll be finished. And I have Kaye's Mirabilia RR now.
