If you've been a longtime reader, you've probably seen me mention Fairy Moon a few times. Then I go comment on every blog I find who's worked on it and say how much I love it and how I'm going to start it soon. Ha!
And then I tell everyone about my Mirabilia/Nora Corbett "to stitch" list and Fairy Moon is always number 1 on that list. And, uh, my Mira list if getting obscene. So much to stitch!
For years...I've been saying I'm starting it "soon".
For years, it's been kitted up and languishing in a jumbo ziploc in the stash closet. Waiting to be started. For the day to come when I would get over the BAP cold feet and just get on with it already. Valerie...get the heck over it!
And Friday was that day. All irritated with my Christmas stitching with running out of threads and weird colors, I rushed home...slapped that fabric on scroll rods and just started stitching!
And here is what I managed to stitch on Friday and Saturday nights. Not much but its a good start! I started in the middle because I get too nervous starting at the top on projects that don't have a border. This purply part is the fairy's shawl. The fabric is a piece of SMF Dragon Moon which is long discontinued. I think it will really pop and create a night-time illusion of the fairy chasing the moon.
I'm having a quiet weekend. Yesterday, I slept in til 11am and just relaxed and caught up on The Voice. I love that show! I ran my errands in the neighborhood and headed to my parents to do laundry and had a nice visit with my mom. She planted a bee in my bonnet a couple of weeks ago about how I should try to find a small condo/apartment to buy. Something about it being a buyer's market with low interest rates. My budget for such a thing is quite low but out of curiousity, I looked on the real estate sites. I found the one of my dreams! Gorgeous. And only $500K for a one bedroom. (!!!) Needless to say, I can't afford that but I think it put things in perspective for my mom that I'd rather rent my lovely apartment than buy something I don't love but can afford. I guess I just have expensive taste or San Francisco is just too darn pricey.
Today is the Oscars!! I've been pretty lax the last 3 weeks or so in my movie viewing so I didn't see everything I had hoped to but I saw a lot of the nominated films. This year, I bought tickets to see a live telecast of the Oscars in a movie theater and they will have an emcee do skits and drawings and such during the commercials. I've always wanted to do this so I hope it's as fun as it sounds! So excited!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!
Until next time...
