Okay so I shamelessly stole this from Barbi's blog, not quite sure I agree, but hey I'll go with it! The moods I've had lately, the "Kill! Kill!" part seems to fit the best! Hmmm, I wonder just how scientifically accurate this actually is!
Anyways, not much to report, I am working on a quilt square and am about 2/3 done, but silly me didn't read the quilt guidelines throughly the first time, especially the part to use colour fast thread! Well duh! That would help wouldn't it! And wouldn't you know I picked the main colour becuase I liked it and that was all I looked at! Yup you guessed it! Its one of those none washable threads... so this square is going to be finished as something else for me, and I'll start the quilt square over a little later... good thing the deadline for mailing isn't until much later! (sometime in the spring - I'll have to check when exactly!)
Here she is! Though I sort of messed up, I thought I would show her off anyways. I have to finsh up her wing (the light pink part under her hair) the heart she is holding in her hand, and backstitching around her and the words. After that its a happy dance! What I'm going to do with her now I'm not sure, but I'm sure I'll figure something out!
I am finding stitching on her a bit weird though! I seem to be having a tough time working on the aida (quilt requirement) I have nothing against the stuff, I just don't really use it anymore. But I've noticed that I'm having a hard time finding the holes! I know what a silly thing to say, but its true! I can't seem to find the holes for where to put the needle next very easily! And something else to go hmmm about! My hand actually doesn't hurt from stitching! I'm stitching this piece in hand, I didn't put in my qsnaps, since the fabric is so stiff anyways. But normally my left hand starts to hurt if I stitch in hand for even just a short amount of time, but not with this square... I've worked on it for two nights and no problems... hmmm...
