mort: hi
This post features my vacation project from Madeira but it also shows off one of my very exciting works in process. So hang onto your hats, people!

That was my holiday project. It's called Plumberry Sampler by Sweet Heart Tree and the letters are in teeny tiny stitch (cross stitch groupies, this is over one on 28 count linen). It was mostly fun but it got very frustrating. The kits used to contain needles, but now they don't and I didn't take any beading needles (Mill Hill petite sead beads really need one). So I did the beads at home.

Now, here is something exclusive to this journal:



This should be Halloween Fairy by Nora at Mirabilia. Unless I have cut the head off because I am new to this tablet photography thing. I normally like hand dyed threads but these are really difficult and tough to match. I will leave forensics until I've finished it.
