My Week In Stitches - Wing Work

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.

Speaking of which, it's almost giveaway time!  A few people have entered, but there are just a few days left to enter my Blogoversary Giveaway - go here and follow the instructions for your chance to win!  Only comments left on the giveaway post will count as entries, and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday!

Great progress, Andrea! I've always liked the Irish Blessing- it's hopeful- if that makes sense! Best wishes to your girls for a great new school year. Nancy in NY
