Finally 2 pages finished on R&J

I finally managed to finish 2 pages of Romeo and Juliet. As you can see Romeo´s wing is coming along very well and I´m so close to starting on his head. I´m getting really excited about that!

Last weekend I participated in July-Stitch-A-Long on Facebook and managed to finish the wing on November Topaz Fairy. The picture doesn´t do it justice at all. Still all the back stitch is left and will be done later.

Stitching during my holidays

I´ve been on holidays for the past 3 weeks and I will return to work later this week. I have been very active at the gym but not so at stitching.  But here are some updates.

I promised my daughter to finsih the O´Holy Night Calendar from Dimension before next Christmas. I have been working hard but all the stars are making me crazy. Now there are only 12 left! Can´t wait to have them all done!

Last weekend I had the urge to start something new and take a short break from the calendar. My choice was between Petal Fairy, Bliss Fairy or Topaz Fairy, all by Mirabilia. I finally decided on Topaz Fairy. It uses a lot of Kreinik which I don´t really like stitching with but the effect is so stunning. Here is what I´ve finished so far. It´s not  much since the Kreinik slows me down a little.
