Fabric Giveaway!

Working on a couple round robin pieces, so no update on the Forest Goddess until after those get sent out.  In the meantime, I have up for raffle a piece of aida that I dyed.  To enter the raffle, either send me a quick e-mail at steffie.c@verizon.net, or just leave a comment here.  One ‘entry’ per person, no limitations on where you live.  Drawing will be on Saturday (March 3rd) at 12:00 pm EST.

This is 18 count aida, appx 14.5″ x 17.5″

Framed pieces

Just finished framing these two beauties in preparation for submitting them to the fair this weekend.  I’m quite pleased with them, as I did the matboards and mounting the stitching myself.  Also, for the mermaid, I had to chart out and and add some extra bits of seaweed along the bottom to cover a couple small red stains that managed to get on the fabric.

At some point, I will get the other 3 seasonal fairies done in matching frames and coordinating mats.  These I had to get done right away, though.  Guess we’ll see what the judges think now!

   

State Fair Ribbons!

Went down the Fair today to check out the Arts and Craft competitions.  2 of the pieces I entered had won ribbons!  I got a 3rd place for Mermaids of the Deep Blue, and an Honorable Mention for Mystical Mermaid.  Yay!

 

I’m entering 3 different pieces in the Central Florida Fair next month, so we’ll see how I do at that one.  🙂

Forest Goddess WIP

And here she is at the end of the first day of stitching.  She is on a Polstitches fabric, not sure on the colorway, it was part of a grab bag.  I think it will look stunning in the end, though. 🙂

Sweet Pea Pixie Complete!

Yay!  I really love the purples and blues on this one, she’s so pretty!  One of my fave in the series.

Now, I will be starting on Forest Goddess.  If I get it done quickly, I’ll even enter it in an upcoming fair in March.  Gotta get my needles going!
