Small Project finish, some progress AND a new baby cousin!!!

Hey all!!! Been a bit hectic this week!!!

First a small finish!

 Nora Corbett's Orchid Pixie! I know its only the face but all will become clear!
I used her face to customize my free notebook from Cross Stitch Crazy this month!

I changed the beads and Kreinik I had in my stash and I'm unbelievably proud of the finished result!!

 I have begun the beading for Ghost Story!! I'm a nightmare for beads and have to do it as I go otherwise it would never get it done!

Finished Summer Fairy's hair!!!

 And the most exciting news!!! My cousin Catrina had her baby!!! Here is Aimee Benedetta Evelyn (try saying that drunk!) She is absolutely beautiful!!!

So now I have to get back working on the Runaway! I stopped as Catrina was going through a really difficult time with the pregnancy and I didn't want to jinx anything!!!
This is Aimee with her big brother Blair! Who decided today he didn't want a little sister and was going to but her in a bin!!!

Lol he'll come around! How could anyone not love her?

This weeks plan! Runaway!!!!

Hey all been a while!!! It would appear my life got in the way of stitching!!! So I have some wip updates as I had a week off work!!!

A tiny little progress on Peony! Finally got to the pink at the bottom of her skirt!!! All the red and orange has been driving me nuts!!

Fair bit progress on Ghost Story!!! Her dress is underway!! Back stitching done on her face!! I wasn't too sure on the single strand back stitch but Gill pointed out she is a ghost and her face would be faint anyway!!

Also been very very very bad and started Joan Elliott's summer fairy!! Yup that brings me to 7 wip's!! Have to start another 8 is my lucky number!!!

On a side note anyone who stitches with me knows Gill Aldus is my favorite designer and she's releasing a new design this weekend! Vana and the Dragons and it's so beautiful, I desperately want it lol!!!! Number 8????
