Another Earth Dancer Update

Hello fellow bloggers!
Thanks to everyone who commented on my last Earth Dancer update. I have to admit when I first started cross stitching on linen I stumbled onto all these beautiful patterns and fell in love. I was so glad I learned how to stitched on Linen, but I also got a little too ambitious! That's why you are seeing all these "big" WIP projects coming out on the blog. Believe me I don't try work on really big projects - at least not now. I usually work in hand so there's only so much linen I can handle that way. Fortunately Celtic Autumn is a piece I can stitch in hand, but it will eventually need to go into a Q-Snap and into the stand. Enough of that - now to the good stuff.
I made a lot of progress on Earth Dancer this weekend. Most of the beading is done. I think the suede fringe will go quickley once that's started.

Detail on the dress front - I really like how this was designed :)

I also visited the Lazy Daizy this weekend and picked up some nice stash....

Work Basket Quaker Evens. Already finished the August Quaker (stitched on cobblestone cashel linen stitched with Water Lilies - Fur silks)

Thanks for looking and encouraging me so much! Until next time - Malinda

That's lovely Malinda! I can't wait to see if FINISHED! I think it would be a great piece for the Stitcher's Showcase in Myrtle Beach this year.... ;-)

Sending hugs!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and signing up for the giveaway. It's nice to see that that is another young stitcher in the world. Hey, wait...I guess I am not so young anymore. LOL I too have many projects sitting in a box. I just recently started working them again and have found that I now need glasses to work on them. Sigh...

For the fringes: did you buy 2 cards of the ecru suede? I needed that much...
