QS Lilith Update

Here was QS Lilith before the themed SAL over on the HAED BB

And here she is after. I was able to put in 10 hours on her but it feels like I should have made so much more progress in those 10 hours ! There is so much confetti in those antenna that it is really slow going. However I do have to say that as annoying as all that confetti is , those antenna are looking really cute :) She comes up for another 10 hours in 2 slots, next on my rotation list is my Twilight piece that I am doing for my youngest DD.

QS Lilith by Nikki Burnette Update

This is the next project in my rotation, QS Lilith. It has been quite awhile since I last worked on her. She is slotted in for 10 hours . I should be able to get this middle section done in that 10 hours although that antenna is just filled with confetti !
There are 7830 stitches in this first page and well over 48,000 in the whole design ! Well time to get some coffee going and to put that needle to flying. I should be able to put in 4 or 5 hours today as I have nothing planned but stitching.

FutureCast @ 13 hours

I have named her Calypso, pretty name for a pretty little dragon :) I worked a few more hours on her by candlelight last night while the power was out due to Tropical Storm Irene. Now I am going back to QS Lilith for a few more hours, I may put another couple of hours into Calypso tonight if I have time. Next week I hope to be able to get to Waterville to pick up the fabric I need to finish her off. I am shooting to have her done in under 25 hours, there is still a good bit left to do on her so we'll see.

Some WIP's

This is my Nimue's "La Pipe", I had to restart him because I just hated the fabric that I was stitching him on. I was stitching him over 2 on 25 ct Dublin Linen with 3 strands, now I am stitching him on 32 ct Antique White evenweave. I am stitching him for Larry for his 43rd Birthday in November. I hope he will be done in time, currently he is at 23 hours and comes back up in my rotation in 2 slots for another 7 hours. I am hopeing that I can get his legs, a bit of the pipe and some B.S. done in those 7 hours.

This is a freebie that I found on the Teresa Wentzler website and it is called Futurecast. I am doing it as a gift for my Aunt Kim for Christmas, her favorite color is purple so I went with a purple/teal conversion for it. I even know how I am going to finish it, over on the blog Random Ramblings there is an awesome tutorial for a fabric -mat that I think would make this look stunning ! I can't wait to finish it, this scan is about 7 hours in.

I could just scream

This is Dragon Sugilite which I was going to work on for the SAL over on the HAED BB however that is not going to happen now :( The background is stitched with alot of 437, I had run out of my 437 for this project so I went and picked up a few more the other day. My 437 must have been old because the new skeins that I picked up do not look the same. so it seems that this will have to wait for a restart. I have to get to Waterville soon to pick up more fabric as I have nothing large enough to restart this on :(

A very small finish

Sorry for the horrible photo - well really scan. Since the camera is broken and it may be another couple of months before I have the money to replace it a very dear friend loaned me his printer that has a scanner built into it. I am still trying to get the hang of using it.

I finished this little cutie off a couple of days ago. I will be turning it into a small ornament. Now i need to go through all of my WIP's and get some current scan's of them. Watch for more pic's coming soon :)

Pallet Shed Idea

So while playing around on the internet today I came across the neatest idea. This shed is built of discarded pallets. What a neat way to recyle - Larry has given me the o.k. to do this so I will be collecting pallets over the winter and come next Sping we will be putting one of these up to use as a goat shed for the goats that we want to get.

Here is a link to the site :
