How is it the end of August already?!?!?!? I can't believe we're heading into September, fall, cool weather (finally! I'm tired of 95 degrees!), football, holiday stitching.......
This month's Theme-a-licious stitching theme is Wings - which means Fairy Sisters is getting extra attention. And this week I actually finished this part of Big Sister's wings!
I didn't make as much progress on Irish Blessing as I wanted - I was doing the flame stitches and just didn't like the way it looked. So (surprise surprise) I decided to change it up. I always change patterns when I get into the stitching. On the plus-side, I really like the tweeding of the yellow and blue, and I like the way the Rhodes stitches look:
I'll make a deal with you all: If I ever stitch a pattern I design exactly as I design it....I don't know.....I'll do another giveaway.
