The Eyes have it!

Faces of Faery 88

This is my progress after 2 weeks Faces of Faery 88I wanted to get two pages completed but this pesky thing known as Christmas kinda got in the way. But at least she now has 2 eyes and I don't feel so freaked out whilst working on her having this one baleful river eye staring back at me.

Had such an eventful Christmas - my car broke down on Christmas Eve. Luckily I was with my friend Lori Angel because those 2 hours turned into one of my most memorable and hilarious moments of my Christmas. Even the tow truck driver said that he has never picked up anyone from the side of the road that was so cheerful (nice word for lunatic maybe??). I guess our happiness was infectious because when we finally got home he stopped and posed for pics with us and didn't charge us a red cent for the tow. How's that for awesome Christmas spirit!! Thanx Andy from Metro Towing. Sometimes mine and Angels lunacy does pay off in a good way. I sorely wish I had photos of Lori pushing the car with one hand and smoking a ciggie with the other. She's only a tiny slip of a girl and this sight caused 3 young men to stop and once they finished laughing at her they pushed my car off the road. Good times, good times.

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and Santa was generous. One thing I love about Christmas is all the time spent with family and friends. It's a magical time.

Now onto Craft business - this weeks rotation is Lost in You by Rachel Marks another HAED chart. This is my first monochrome project as I saw some completed in the gallery and thought they look amazing. I was a bit concerned I might get bored of it easily because I love working with lots of colours but surprisingly it's just as much fun to see the picture unfold. I'm hoping to get 3 full stitch days in this week, see how I go.

Lost in You

That's it for now and will probably be my last post for 2010.

Have a Happy and safe New Year everyone and will see you next year! xoxox


  1. It's looking great so far. I would be a little more freaked out having two eyes staring at me while I stitch! lol. Her eyes are really captivating. They really draw you in...

    "Lost in you" looks great too. Looking forward to seeing it finished. I am really interested to see how it turns out being a monochrome design.

    I love the scissor sitter!! It's genious!. I am always losing my scissors. Thanks for sharing that :)

    Good luck with all your stitching. Update soon!
    Have a very happy and safe new year.
    Happy stitching! :)

  2. Thanx Bec! Wishing you a very happy and safe new year too. Yeah the scissor sitter is very handy because I do waste a lot of time hunting for the scissors. They have some great accessories on there and not too pricey. Congrats on your recent finish it looks awesome and unique to you.

    Happy stitching and thanx for reading my blog.
